Clementine and Coriander 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

The holidays are upon us and Christmas is just a couple weeks away. Do you still have gifts to buy? Of course you do, so do I! Fear not! I have put together a foodie gift guide for everyone in your life! From the master-chef to your friend who won’t book their book down, I’ve got you covered!

For the Bookworm

1. Cherry Bombe the Cookbook

This cookbook is a fantastic compilation of recipes from a diverse group of women chefs, cooks, food writers, food stylists and more. Support fierce women and cook your heart out with this beautiful book. 

2. The Immigrant Cookbook

This beautiful cookbook features recipes and stories from 80 immigrant chefs, including Nobel Peace Prize nominee Jose Andres. Each purchase of this book benefits the ACLU Immigrant’s Rights Project.

3. Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain

There’s no way I could have put together with this without honoring the man that drove me to love food. This book is nothing short of genius. If you’ve ever wanted to know what it truly is like to work in the food business, this is for you. It’s witty, wise, and hilariously profane. This book may not be for the faint of heart but it should definitely be on your Christmas list.

For the Baker

1. Threshold Gold Measuring Cups from Target

These brushed stainless steel measuring cups upped my game so much! They don’t break the bank and are so sleek. Plus, you can buy the matching measuring spoons and have a matching set!

2. Peach Amaretto Jam by Stonewall Kitchen

Stonewall Kitchen is a magical place. Samples everywhere, everything smells like jam. It’s truly beautiful. What’s even more beautiful is this Peach Amaretto Jam. I purchased this as a mother’s day gift for my mom and it was immediately opened for brunch that day. It’s really the tastiest jam I’ve ever had and any baker would be delighted to receive this. (I mean imagine this in a linzer cookie?? Come on!)

3. Nordic Ware Anniversary Loaf Pan

This pan hit a soft spot for me! My anniversary is shortly after Christmas, and my parents’ is right before Christmas. What a beautiful pan for someone celebrating something extra special around the holidays!

For the Bartender

1. Good Neighbors Bottle Toppers from Ten Thousand Villages

Gift these to the bartender in your life and you’ll actually be giving two gifts- Ten Thousand Villages supports artisans around the world who need support, training, education or basic neccessities like food and water. This purchase supports the cooperative La Semilla de Dios in El Salvador. Gifting these handmade bottle toppers is truly the neighborly thing to do!

2. Mini Bitters Variety Pack by Food 52

This mini pack of bitters is the perfect gift for your friend who thinks they’re a mixologist. With flavors like smoked chili and ginger lemon, along with classics like orange, your friends are sure to whip up some exciting cocktails with this gift.

Gifts that Do Good

1. Speckled Ceramic Mini Colander from Ten Thousand Villages

This beautiful and handcrafted colander supports Sana Hastakala, a non profit organization in Kathmandu that works to preserve the artisan traditions of the area while supporting artisans with training and marketing assistance. 

2. Beeswax Wraps from Freewheelin Market on Etsy

Plastic is out. It’s bad for our bodies and our environment. Bees are in! And their wax is a beautiful substitute for plastic wrap and plastic bags. Get this cute and healthy Beeswax wrap for your friend who seriously needs to kick their plastic habit!

3. Divine Dark Chocolate with Hazelnuts and Cranberries

Could a chocolate bar get more festive? Giving the gift of this artisanal chocolate supports chocolatiers and farmers in Ghana. How sweet is that?

And with that, you’ve reached the end of the Clementine and Coriander 2018 Holiday Gift Guide! I hope I gave you all some great ideas to fill your friends’ and family’s stockings (and maybe sneak something in for yourself!) Happy holidays!
