Simple Gifts (Eight Weeks 'til Christmas)

{photo credit}
I'm starting a new Monday series, "Simple Gifts", which is basically my affordable (with the exception of the "Give Luxe" item at the end of each list), extended version of Oprah's Favorite Things where I don't give anything away (the similarities are endless). Personally, some of the best moments of the holidays are finding presents that I know my friends and family will enjoy and hopefully this will make shopping a little less stressful, even if you are a last-minute shopper.

This week's list is for the foodies we all know and love. Always expanding their palates, these gourmands will try just about anything and love the best, purest ingredients they can get their hands on. Delight their senses this holiday season with the following:

1. The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, for the DIYer

2. Fennel and Black Pepper Bacon Spread, for the lover of all things bacon


4. Fleur D'Oranger (Orange Blossom Water), for the passionate baker
Orange Blossom Water

5. On Food and Cooking, for the one who wants to know how the magic happens

6. Give Luxe: Fresh White Alba Truffles from Italy, for the foodie that has everything

Last minute gift ideas:
Subscription to Bon Appetit
Gift card to Gilt Taste

Stay tuned for next week's Simple Gifts, and let me know what you think of this week's list!
Happy Monday!

Lovin the series so far! And LOL you and Oprah ARE so much alike! Hahah. I'd totally add something from America's Test Kitchen with the "for the one who wants to know how the magic happens" because ATK explains everything too. Can't wait to see the next one. Not too many foodies in my life. Though I might be happy receiving that Intelligentsia coffee....
