Looking for to spoil someone on your list with a gourmet gift? We're excited to share these gourmet Grommets with you! Here are a few ideas for gifts for foodies:
Simply Splendid. All of Jeni’s treats are delivered deeply frozen, so they’re easy to ship (in packs of six or nine flavors) just in time for a decadent holiday dinner or to your favorite food-lover for an unforgettable gift. One bite and you’ll be hooked. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. ($70.00) Buy Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams gourmet ice cream here.
You Will Like it With a Goat. Like dulce de leche (a traditional caramel sauce made with cow’s milk), all of the Fat Toad caramel sauces start with milk and sugar. But here, the milk is from goats, and the sugar is organic. Choose the original flavor (simply milk and sugar), or go for coffee bean, vanilla bean, or cinnamon for an extra flavor kick. The creamy, sweet sauce tastes familiar at first, but the finish is lent a buttery complexity unlike anything we’ve ever had. ($8.95 and up) Buy Fat Toad Farm's organic goat's milk caramel sauce here.
A Sweet Innovation. Food lovers know honey can be a healthier alternative to sugar in your tea or coffee. These Honibe honeycomb-shaped drops contain no additives or preservatives. The drops also work great as lozenges if you’ve got a sore throat, or for a quick energy boost during workouts. Just unwrap and enjoy the sweetness. ($9.99) Buy Honibe pure honey cubes here.
Adventures In Chocolate. Hotel Chocolat is both a cocoa grower and chocolatier – your host will swoon over this delectable and sophisticated experience. Select from lovely gifts like a dipping adventures and luxurious truffles. These are truly meant to be shared! ($35 and up) Buy Hotel Chocolat's chocolate fondue set here.
Fizz, Sparkle, and Pop. Love the fizz of a carbonated beverage but hate taking the empty ones to be recycled? We were thrilled to find SodaStream from Soda Club Group. With a touch of a button you can turn flat water effervescent. Add any of the company’s 25 flavored regular and diet syrups and you’ve got homemade soda at a fraction of the cost of store brands (and without high fructose corn syrup). It’s a great way to save time and money—and reduce your carbon footprint. This is something fun for the person who doesn't even know they want it. ($99.95-$199.95) Buy Soda Club Sodastream carbonator to make your own soda here.
Just Your Cup Of Tea. IngenuiTEA is an all-in-one compact loose tea making device. All you need to do is boil water for a quality cup of tea. Now how easy is that for a gourmet experience? ($15.38) Buy Adagio Tea's Ingenuitea here.
Chocolate 2.0. TCHO is decidedly different. This San Francisco-based chocolate factory was founded by a Space Shuttle technologist-turned-chocolate maker and a chocolate manufacturing veteran. They set out to make “obsessively good dark chocolate” and found Fair Trade cacao from around the world to make it with.($55.00) Buy TCHO good fair trade chocolate here.
Sweet Nostalgia. Do you remember the taste of a whoopie pie? The Whoppie by Chococoa Baking Company is fresh spin on this homespun favorite, which some say got its name because farmers would shout, “whoopie!” A bite-sized, cream-filled cake in five flavors.These sweet treat are made with all natural ingredients. ($28.00) Buy The Whoopie here.
Enchanted Chocolate. There’s good reason for the success of Fairytale Brownies. Eileen and David insist on pure ingredients, like Callebaut Belgian chocolate blended with pure creamery butter and farm fresh eggs. You won’t find any trans fats, hydrogenated oils, preservatives or artificial colors. And their brownies are guaranteed fresh upon arrival. We’re guessing they won’t stick around for long, but if you’re the type who can avoid the temptation to immediately consume every last morsel, Fairytale Brownies will keep at room temperature for a week or longer (you can also freeze them). ($26.95 - $39.95) Buy Fairytale Brownies here.
Brew Up Happy Holidays The beautifully packaged collection from Tea Forté includes three tasty blends: a decaf sweet orange spice, a caffeinated traditional English breakfast blend, and a decaf crimson nectar tea that steeps to a deep ruby red—a great alternative to humdrum hot cider this holiday season! ($15 and up) Buy Tea Forte's gourmet tea gift set here.
Mixed With Love. Trying to cook up a perfect breakfast for someone in your life? MixMyGranola will throw together a custom, all-natural, 16-ounce blend according to your specifications that lets the gourmet-lover in your life know you remember they hate raisins, love Craisins, and adore all things chocolate! Just go to the site, choose a granola or muesli base, and layer in all of their favorite things. It’s that simple. ($4.99 and up) Buy MixMyGranola custom granola mix here.

These unforgettable cheeses will make an unforgettable impression on every recipient. ($40.00 and up) Buy Silvery Moon Creamery's Maine artisanal cheese sampler here.
Caramel-icious Confections. Like dulce la leche (a traditional caramel sauce made with cow’s milk), all of the Fat Toad caramel sauces start with milk and sugar. But here, of course, the milk is from goats and the sugar is organic. Choose the original flavor (simply milk and sugar), or go for coffee bean, vanilla bean or cinnamon for an extra flavor kick. The creamy, sweet sauce tastes familiar at first, but the finish is lent a buttery complexity unlike anything we’ve ever had. (Starting at $8.95) Buy Fat Toad Farm's Carmel Sauce here.
