2023 Holiday Gift Guide for Food Lovers Part 1 #holidaygiftguide2023 #foodlovergifts #holidayfoodgifts #giftsforfoodies

After another, l-o-n-g, hot Texas Summer, 
temps are finally falling...and the holiday season is once again upon us! That can only mean one thing around here: it's time for my annual Holiday Gift Guide for Food Lovers -- my handpicked ideas for gifts that your fellow food lovers will LOVE to receive! This year, I'm featuring curated gift sets that can be shipped nationwide OR come to you boxed and ready to give...ideas for custom gift sets you can tailor to your spending gift suggestions...and perfect gifts for the party hosts on your shopping list. So? Let's get started with Part 1! 

(1) For the Peppermint Lover: Stonewall Kitchen's Peppermint Collection. 
For many people, peppermint is the signature flavor of the holiday season! For the peppermint lovers on your holiday shopping list, Stonewall Kitchen offers a fantastic variety of peppermint-infused holiday well as festive peppermint print kitchen linens. 
Stonewall Kitchen's peppermint items include Peppermint Hot Chocolate, Chocolate Peppermint Brownie Mix, Chocolate Peppermint Sauce, and a coordinating peppermint fabric pot holder and dish towel. Items featured here range in price from $8.95 to $17.50. 

Because these items can be purchased individually, you can easily utilize them to create affordable personalized holiday gifts. For example, the Peppermint Hot Chocolate ($13.95) pairs great with a colorful mug and homemade holiday cookies. It's a thoughtful DIY gift that can be enjoyed during the holidays...and into the new year! You can also select several items from the collection, then arrange them in a basket lined with their festive Peppermint Kitchen Towel ($10.95). Be sure to visit Stonewall Kitchen's handy online store to check out these great peppermint items...and their entire holiday line!

(2) Perfect for Movie Night, Date Night, or Winter Binge Watching: Popzup Popcorn. The quintessential at-home Family Night...or Date Movie Night. That means one thing: popcorn! I was introduced to Popzup Popcorn this Fall, and now I'm hooked! This family-owned company is based in New Hampshire, where they make delicious popcorn by hand using pure, simple ingredients straight from the farm: popcorn kernels, butter, and cheese. I'm sharing two great Popzup options for the holiday season: bags of delicious ready-to-eat popcorn...and their fun Movie Time Popcorn Box Kit.
The Try Them All - Family Size set ($28) features four 5-oz bags of Popzup's signature ready-to-eat flavors: Butter Me Up, Cheddar Head, Maple Cinnamon Toast, and Cheesy Herbie. With both savory and sweet options, there's something to please everyone! I love all these flavors, but the classic Butter Me Up...flavored simply with sea salt and sweet cream my personal favorite. For maximum movie theater vibes, I warm my bowl in the microwave for 10-15 seconds!
For those who prefer to pop their own popcorn, Popzup offers a Movie Time Popcorn Kit that's available for microwave popping ($29) OR stovetop popping ($25). Both kits include a dozen individual packs of popcorn kernels and Popzup's signature Real Butter & Sea Salt Seasoning. 

The microwave Movie Night Kit also includes Popzup's innovative reusable microwave popcorn popper. This eco-friendly popper is 
made with virgin paperboard that's printed with vegetable-based ink. It can easily be recycled or composted when you're ready to discard it. What a perfect gift for those who prefer to use Earth-friendly products! You can find these two gift ideas...and visiting Popzup's online shop. For my Texas readers, I also have purchased bags of Popzup at my local Central Market.

(3) For the Coffee Lover: DIY Coffee Set With Peet's Coffee K-Cup® Pods, Skinny Mixes Holiday Sugar Free Syrups, and a Meaningful Mug. Coffee lovers on your holiday gift list will go nuts for a gift set featuring their favorite K-Cup® pods and yummy sugar-free flavoring syrups. Peet's Coffee has a line of K-Cup® pods  ($9.99 per 10-pod box) that includes their 2023 seasonal Holiday Blend and Peppermint well as year-round favorites Caramel BrĂ»lee, and Hazelnut Mocha. 
Next, select a duo of delicious sugar-free Holiday Skinny Syrups ($7.99/bottle) that coordinate with your selected Peet's Coffee flavors. 
Flavors in Jordan's Skinny Mixes 2023 Holiday Collection include:
  • Sugar Cookie
  • Peppermint Bark
  • White Chocolate Peppermint
  • Eggnog
  • Chestnut Praline
  • Spiced Cranberry
  • Gingerbread Latte
  • Naturally Sweetened Peppermint Mocha -- sweetened with stevia, monk fruit, and erythritol
Once your coffee and syrups are selected, add a fun coffee mug that matches your recipient's personality or favorite hobby. Finally, add everything to a clear cellophane gift bag...and tie with a festive holiday ribbon. Boom! A DIY coffee gift that's customized to their personal favorite flavors.

Be sure to come back Monday for Part 2 of this year's Holiday Gift Guide for Food Lovers! I'll be sharing a trio of gifts that are family friendly...or perfect for the entertainers on your holiday shopping list.
