Fun fact about me: My love language is gift giving. When I first came to the conclusion, I’ll admit I was a little bit embarrassed. Of all five of the other love languages (acts of service, physical touch, words of affirmation, and quality time), gift-giving, at the surface, seems like it would be the most shallow. But hear me out: I promise I’m not a superficial, vapid gold digger. For me, giving and receiving gifts isn’t about spending money or having “stuff.” It’s about the sentiment. It says “this made me think of you!” and I think that’s really freakin’ special. 

And if we’re getting more specific, my love language is gifting in the form of food. If you show up to my apartment with a bouquet of chicken nuggets, I will fall madly in love with you. If you don’t want me to fall madly in love with you, that’s fine. Just be sure not to do this. 

With the holiday season looking a little more distant this year, make someone’s day by sending them one of these 25 edible gifts because, after all, the most tried-and-true way to the heart is through the belly (at least for me, anyway).

 

Surely

Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Rosé

For the nights you want to sip a special beverage with your friends but don't want to drink, this canned sparkling rosé has so much bubbly flavor—without the hangover. We also love keeping this on hand to sip in between alcoholic beverages when the night seems like it'll go on forever (because aren't those the best nights?).

This is perfect for your friend who watches The Great British Baking Show on repeat. This kit has everything you need to become a French patisserie chef in your very own kitchen.

Best of France Cheese Board

Confession: We love cheese boards, but we don't always have the willpower to make them. This Best of France Cheese Board is the perfect gift for the cheese lover in your life. It feeds five to seven people, includes three French cheese varieties, and comes in a unique gift box. I.e. we're sold.

Sugarfina

Holiday Candy Bento Box

We want to buy this bento box because of the packaging alone. But if you think that we won't tear it open to get to Sugarfina's most craveable candies in record time, then you must not know us. The perfect holiday gift exists, and this is it.

Edoughble

Edible Cookie Dough

This edible cookie dough assortment is absolutely genius. This particular set includes four 12-ounce pints in the flavors Chocolate Chip off the Ol' Block, Birthday Bash, Cookies n' Dream, and Milk n' Cookies. Enjoy this sunny L.A. treat anywhere in the United States.

Milk Bar

The Milk Bar Sampler

Milk Bar is one of our favorite edible brands to send to our friends. Not only is this arrangement the perfect assortment of our favorite Milk Bar goodies (cookies, truffles, and pie), but the packaging also puts this at the top of our own holiday wish lists.

Milk Bar

Peppermint Pretzel Snap Tin

The only thing we love more than Milk Bar is holiday at Milk Bar. Enter these Peppermint Pretzel Cookies that are festive and delicious. Get one tin or five. We won't judge.

Baked by Melissa

Mini Macarons

These Mini Macarons are almost too cute to eat. But will that stop us from eating all 25 in one sitting? Absolutely not. Double stuffed, bite sized, and gluten-free? You can't go wrong with these little guys!

Edible Arrangements

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

These decadent chocolate covered strawberries from Edible Arrangements are the absolute ideal treat. Name a better duo than semi-sweet chocolate and a fresh, juicy strawberry. We'll wait.

Baked by Melissa

Cupcake Assortment

Because we could all use a bit of a reminder that "we're doing great" these days. And nothing says "you're loved" quite like an assortment of 25 mini cupcakes that will make your taste buds go nuts.

Insomnia Cookies

Lil' Dipper Mini Cookie Gift Box

Insomnia cookies are an instant classic, and these lil' dippers are a unique take on the classic cookie delivery. Think Dunkaroos (throwback!) but the fresh, 2021 version. If you think I won't be eating the buttercream by itself once my cookies run out, you're wrong.

See's Candies

Assorted Holiday Chocolates

How insanely good do these assorted chocolates look? Maybe it's the big red bow and pristine packaging, but this box of chocolates just screams "happy holidays" to us. Gift one to your loved one and one to yourself—you deserve it.

Doughees

Holiday Build-A-Box

These Doughees are unlike any bakery item you've ever tried before. Based in Miami, Doughees is a company that serves cookie cups filled with your favorite treats—oh yes, we're talking the good stuff: brownies, cookies and cream, oreos, babka, salted caramel, guava, and more.

Magnolia Bakery

Classic Banana Pudding

Three words, 20 letters, say it and I'm yours: Classic Banana Pudding. If you haven't tried this yet, we reckon that you haven't lived yet. This stuff is so good, and now, this NYC-born bakery can be delivered and enjoyed in the comfort of your own home.

Dave's Coffee

Coffee Subscription

For the coffee lover in your life, give the gift of pure bliss—craft roasted coffee for three, six, or 12 months. Fuel never tasted so dang good.

Katz's Deli

Birthday Deli Box

Katz's Delicatessen is a New York favorite for a reason, and they now ship anywhere in the U.S. and Canada. This is the ultimate gift for foodies, ex-New Yorkers, and deli fans alike.

Lou Malnati's

Deep Dish Pizza

Gift this Chicago staple for a holiday gift, and you'll for sure find yourself on the nice list this year. In Chicago, we have a theory that you don't know pizza until you've tried Lou's deep dish. Trust us, this isn't your average pizza delivery.

Truff

Truffle Infused Hot Sauce Variety Pack

Hot sauce fans, unite! This three-pack of truffle-infused hot sauce brings the spice and is the most beautifully unexpected item you can gift to a loved one. It's Oprah's favorite, so it's guaranteed to be good.
