Adopt an Olive Tree for Personal Olive Oil 

Give the gift of high-quality olive oil by purchasing them an "adopt an olive tree" package from Nudo Olive Oil. We've gifted several of these packages to friends and family - they absolutely love the oil!

A Donation to End Hunger

Food is love. Give the ultimate gift of food - make a donation in their name to Feeding America. They work with 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and help feed millions of children and adults each year.

The Oldest Cookbook in the World

Gift some of the oldest known recipes in the world with a translation of Apicius de re Coquinaria - an Ancient Roman cookbook. Wonderful for foodies who love history and cooking, there are recipes for seafood, wild game, vegetables, grains, and beverages.

Edible Flowers for A Gorgeous Kitchen Garden

Perfect for the home cook who loves to make salads and artful spring and summer dishes, the gift of edible flower seeds, will be very appreciated.

Zingerman's Monthly Clubs

What's better than a box of cheese? Monthly boxes of cheese! Zingerman's subscriptions for their monthly clubs are one of our absolute favorite gifts. They have a bread club, a cheese club, a culinary adventure society (oh my!), and a frequent fish club (how fun!).

High-Quality Spices

Home cooking can be seriously elevated when you use high-quality, fresh spices. One of our favorite places to source excellent, unique spices is The Spice House. We highly recommend their Mediterranean Herb Blend and the Shawarma seasoning.

Handmade Kitchen Pottery 

Handmade items always feel special and thoughtful. Buy your cook a pottery item like a berry bowl/strainer, an olive oil cruet, or a salt cellar gift set. As a bonus, you get to support a small maker.
