Product: Holiday Gift Guide Compendium

You’ve been procrastinating and you know it. Don’t worry. For one thing, you’re not the only one. For another, there’s still time to get awesome gifts for everyone you know in time for Christmas.

The most failproof presents are food and beverage accessories, because everyone loves and needs to eat and drink. As such, we’ve compiled our favorite epicurean gift guides of 2014. Here, you’ll find many of our products as well as a whole host of other great gifts. And while many of the items featured are made by other companies, we make or distribute many of them ourselves as well (like the bottle writing pens and giant glass on Wine Awesomeness’s list, Spin-The-Shot and whiskey stones in Sur La Table’s guide, or Scrappy’s Bitters as featured by Food52). So check to see if we’ve got what you want, and remember, order them through our website by 3pm and we’ll ship it out the same day! (That’s all year round, too.) Happy shopping!
