Chef & RD Allison Schaaf shares 4 food gifts she loves to give and receive for different occasions.
4 Best Food Gifts to Send by Mail
I recently received a gift of soup with gluten free rolls and cookies from a company called Spoonful of Comfort. They have great gluten free options if needed. Of course, if there’s someone local, it’s nice to give a homemade gift like soup or lasagna as well.
2. Baked by Melissa Cupcakes
I recently sent some Baked by Melissa cupcakes to the Prep Dish team members to celebrate Prep Dish’s 10 year anniversary. These are healthier cupcakes but are SO tasty with amazing flavor options. They’re fun because they’re really small but that means you can try lots of different flavors.
I’ve also sent a little mimosa kit with mini prosecco with blood orange juice along with the cupcakes.
3. Shipped Whole Foods Order
I do this a lot because I like being able to pick and choose. I always include flowers, often lilies, some of my favorite dark chocolate and some fruit. Other items will depend on the person and the situation. This is a great way to put together a gift without paying the surplus of a pre-curated gift company.
4. Handmade Coffee Mug
I’ve also sent a handmade coffee mug, I think from Farmhouse Pottery, with some of my favorite teas and nut pod creamers.
