It can be hard finding the perfect gift for a foodie or food lover. We are here to help! So whether you are looking for fun stocking stuffers or a gift that makes everyone go wow, here are the seven best holiday gifts for foodies in New York City.
Sugarfina Candy Boxes
First off, one of our favorite stocking stuffers for the holidays are Sugarfina’s (30 Rockefeller Plaza & Other Locations) candy boxes. With everything from champagne gummy bears to birthday cake caramels, we find there is something for everyone!
Jacques Torres Chocolate
Similarly a good piece of chocolate is pure bliss. Jacques Torres Chocolate (350 Hudson St & Other Locations) is easily our favorite chocolate shop in New York City. There are a lot of scrumptious things to choose from like bonbons, chocolate covered raisins and hot chocolate mix.
Tickets to Ahoy New York Food Tours
Looking for a fun gift for someone who loves food and history? Ahoy New York food tours are perfect! There are two tours to choose from, the Chinatown & Little Italy Food Fest and A Taste of Mulberry Street. Check out our tours compare page to see which tour is a better choice for you.
We love giving (and getting) Schmackary’s (362 W 45th St) cookies as gifts. There are so many yummy flavors to choose from. You have classics like their snickerdoodle and more unusual cookies like their bacon chocolate chip cookie. We recommend getting a little of everything!
Baked By Melissa Cupcakes
Another great option for anyone who has a bit of a sweet tooth are Baked By Melissa (110 Fulton Street & Other Locations) cupcakes. These cupcakes are bite sized so they encourage trying a bunch of different flavors!
Katz’s Delicatessen Salami
P.C.: yelp, John S.
If you are looking to gift a taste of New York City, we recommend Katz’s Delicatessen (205 E Houston St) hard salami or maybe some of their signature pastrami. They are both just packed with flavor and best of all, Katz’s Deli now ships so you can save a trip!
A Cooking Class
Finally if you want a gift that is a little more hands on, a good idea is a cooking class in New York City. We highly recommend checking out French Cheese Board’s (41 Spring St) cheese classes. Also take a look at our blog post of the best cooking classes in New York City for even more ideas. As a group, you can make pastas, pizzas, deserts and more!
