Holiday Food Gift Guide


Last week we saw Eden’s fantastic holiday gift picks for beauty-related products found at Perelandra. To complement that, we wanted to also share food-related gift ideas, too! With the increased prevalence of gift cards and online shopping, a little homemade gift can go a long way. Instead of braving the department stores and holiday shopping madness, consider setting aside an afternoon to whip up some homemade treats in your kitchen!
Most –if not all – of the ingredients for these thoughtful gifts can be found at Perelandra. The only other thing you’ll need is to pick up some containers or packaging to add the final touches on your personalized treats! 
Check out these food-related gift ideas:
Infused Salts:
From 101 Cookbooks, a recipe for citrus salt. There are many potential variations – herb salt, truffle salt, smoked salt. 
We walked you through the steps to make your own granola earlier this year. Package it in a jar and voila! 
Irish Cream:
While you’ll have to get your liquor elsewhere, this recipe from Design Sponge is simple and will surely be well received.
Preserved Lemons:
If you’ve never cooked with preserved lemons, you’re missing out. Make these for your friends and include some North African recipes for inspiration. Don’t forget to make enough for yourself, too! Alice Waters’ recipe is the most straightforward and reliable. 
Spicy Cocktail Pecans:
These are a perfect host/hostess gift for any holiday party and so addicting! Try this recipe from Country Living.

Herbes de Provence:
Any cook, serious or not, would appreciate some herbs to spice up their cooking, especially if they were packaged with care from a friend. Try Emeril Lagasse’s recipe for the perfect combination of herbs.

Vegan Toffee:
Who doesn’t love toffee this time of year? Vegans should be able to enjoy it like everyone else, so why not try this recipe from Newly Vegan?
Whole Grain Mustard:
You’ll find mustard in every refrigerator, but it’s not often that you’ll find something this good. Try this cheap and delicious recipe from Macheesmo.
Marinated Goat Cheese:
Another perishable gift, but there will be no need to refrigerate it because it’ll undoubtedly be eaten upon delivery! Try this take on marinated goat cheese from the NY Times.
Herbal Teas:
We all know about the benefits of many herbal teas, so why not pick up some bulk herbs and create your own combinations? If you need some guidance, check out these 10 ideas from Wellness Mama.

Cocoa and Marshmallows:
There are few things that are more comforting during the holidays than relaxing with a warm drink. Impress your friends and family with homemade cocoa and marshmallows! Try these recipes from Smitten Kitchen and Whipped.
Infused Honey:
Probably one of the easiest idea on the list, this infused honey recipe from Country Living would be a great gift for any tea drinker.
Infused Vinegars:
If you haven’t yet realized that infusing something is as easy as combining something flavorful with something that will take on the flavor, the simplicity of it is underscored in this basic recipe infused vinegar from Design Sponge.
Hopefully these ideas will help you think beyond your regular train of thought when it comes to giving holiday gifts! You might even have a little bit of fun in the process, too.
