2022 Holiday Gift Guide for Food Lovers, Part 2 #holidaygiftguide2022 #giftsforfoodlovers #foodiegifts

I had so many great food and kitchen gift ideas this holiday season that I simply couldn't fit them all in one post. So here's Part 2 of this year's Holiday Gift Guide for Food Lovers...hand-selected by me! Today's gift selections include some amazing mail order gift sets...a meal subscription kit designed to make dinnertime less hectic...and even a couple of super fun and sweet suggestions! Let's get started...
(1) Crumbl Cookies. There are cookies...and then there are Crumbl Cookies. These huge gourmet cookies have blown up in popularity the past couple of years for good reason: they're delicious AND they feature a gazillion creative flavors. Example: Gingerbread Cake, Boston Cream Pie, and Sea Salt Toffee! Crumbl lovers literally can't get enough of them! Crumbl offers six rotating flavors per week...their signature milk chocolate chip and iconic iced sugar cookies are typically on the menu every week. Then? New flavors are offered weekly to round out the menu...often with seasonal themes. For the holidays, you have two gifting options: if you have a Crumble location near you, you can order for same-day local delivery direct from their easy-to-navigate app. Cookies are available in packs of four, six, or 12. Quick, easy, and delicious! 
For nationwide delivery, Crumbl also offers a convenient shipping option. Each month, they offer a dedicated shipping menu that's separate from those offered at their brick-and-mortar stores. The cookies are baked fresh, individually wrapped, and typically shipped within 2 days. This month's shipping menu includes Molten Lava, Lemon Glaze, Gingersnap, Peppermint Bark, Sea Salt Toffee, Red Velvet White Chip, Milk Chocolate, and Snickerdoodle. Your gift recipient receives Crumbl's iconic pink box with either 6 ($29.99 + shipping) or 12 cookies ($49.44 + shipping) inside. They arrive fresh...ready to unwrap and eat! The box even includes instructions for reheating the cookies to enjoy them warm. Shipments can be ordered directly from the Crumbl app...or via their website. 
(2) Dash Gingerbread Man Wonderful Mini Waffle Gift Set ($24.99). Dash's mini waffle makers have become hugely popular in recent years. They make perfect miniature versions of a wide range of waffle creations. For people like me who watch their carbs and portion sizes? This is a fun, simple way to help achieve your weight loss goals! The Dash mini waffle maker is also a family-friendly way to make breakfast and brunch fun. This festive Dash holiday set features a mini waffle maker decorated outside with adorable seasonal gingerbread men...and the design inside leaves the imprint on a gingerbread man on  your waffles. The waffle maker is paired with a Wonderful Mini Waffles cookbook, which contains dozens of recipes scaled to make with the Dash mini. As you can see? It's incredibly cute!
The Dash Gingerbread Man Wonderful Mini Waffle Gift Set -- along with several other seasonal mini waffle maker options -- is available via the Dash website

(3) DeLallo Appetizer Favorites Gift Set ($56.66).
 DeLallo is a third generation family-owned company that's sourced the best Italian foods direct from Italy for 70+ years! For true food lovers? This fantastic gift set has everything needed to create a deliciously simple Christmas OR New Year's Eve Italian antipasti board. It's basically a party in a box. Simply add your beverage of choice, and you're good to go! This flavorful gift box contains five essential items:
  • Pitted Castelvetrano Olives
  • Imported Italian Tomato Bruschetta
  • Classic Focaccia Toasts
  • 9 0z Mini Genoa Salami
  • Imported Italian Granino Cheese Wedge
This Appetizer Favorites Gift Set -- as well as DeLallo's complete line of curated holiday gift sets -- is available for purchase from the company's convenient online Shop. Act quickly, though -- they're currently offering free Economy Shipping on online orders more than $50!

(4) HelloFresh Meal Kit Gift Card ($75-140). 
For people who love to cook...and also save time in the kitchen...a HelloFresh gift card is a very thoughtful present! You simply send them a gift card in one of four amounts: $75, $90, $115, or $140. For reference, a $75 card will purchase a week of three complete meals to feed two people. The purchase process is quick and easy. Click the link above, purchase a gift card, enter your recipient's e-mail, add a personal message...and you're literally done in minutes! From these, HelloFresh e-mails your gift recipient at 10:30 EST on your selected gift date...along with instructions to redeem. 
What I love best about HelloFresh is the wide range of meal options they offer (Veggie, Family Friendly, Fit & Wholesome, etc.). Each rotating weekly menu has 35+ different meals to choose from for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There's literally something for everyone! After they order, the box arrives at their door on the day they select. Inside are individual bags of ingredients needed to make each recipe -- along with easy-to-follow recipe cards. 
The only ingredients that typically aren't included are standard kitchen staples like olive oil and salt & pepper. Most HelloFresh recipes I've cooked are ready to eat in about 30 minutes and taste amazing! One recent favorite meal is Zucchini and Tomato Flatbreads. Trust me...any cook on your holiday list will love receiving a HelloFresh gift card. Saving time in the kitchen AND enjoying a delicious meal is a definite win-win scenario ANY time of the year!

(5) Urban Accents Movie Night Popcorn Set. At-home movie nights are popular for a reason: they save money, you can stay in your pajamas...and you can make your own snacks! This creative Urban Accents Movie Night Popcorn Set is offered via Stonewall Kitchens, and it has everything you need to make deliciously flavored popcorn in your own kitchen. The set comes with three different types of premium non-GMO popcorn...and five sweet and savory seasoning blends. Check out this variety:
  • White Gold Popcorn
  • Tri Color Popcorn
  • Ruby Red Popcorn
  • White Cheddar Seasoning
  • Buttery Caramel Corn Seasoning
  • Dill Pickle Seasoning
  • Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn Seasoning
  • Sizzling Sriracha Ranch Seasoning
The popcorn can be popped on the stovetop...or in the microwave. Simply pop up some popcorn...and pop on a movie! This is definitely a gift that can be enjoyed long after the holiday season is over. This great gift set can be ordered direct from the Stonewall Kitchen website.

(6) SnackMagic Gift Box. 
If you're looking for a uniquely customizable gift to send to your friends and family, look no further than SnackMagic. Who doesn't like trying out new snacks?!?!? There are 19 different snack categories to choose from, including: Cookies, Baked Goods, Candies, Chocolate, Protein Bars, and Crunchies. These creative snack boxes are available in three different categories...the choice is 100% designed by you! If you have several friends or family members to buy for, this can literally be a "one stop shop" for all of your holiday shopping. How's that for holiday time savings?
  • Build-Their-Own Snack Box. You set a price (minimum $45) -- similar to buying a gift card -- and your gift recipient(s) build their own custom snack box. Recipients can choose from more than 2,000 different snack items. There's literally something for everyone!
  • Curated Snack Box. You pick a price ($45 minimum), then choose a themed snack box that's curated by SnackMagic in a variety of categories, including: Happy Holidays, Winter Medley, Chocolate, Football Fan, and Dorm Essentials. 
  • Surprise Snack Box. You choose a price (minimum $45). Then, SnackMagic curates a surprise box of snacks in your selected category/theme for your gift recipient(s) to receive. You never know what fun snacks they'll's always a pleasant surprise to see what snacks they send.
For all three of the above options, recipients receive an e-mail from SnackMagic that contains a link for them to redeem their personalized snack box. Standard shipping (10-14 days after recipient redeems their box) is FREE for all SnackMagic snack boxes.
