It’s always fun to collaborate with other team members on gift guides, so this year, Kristina and I worked together to create a food-themed gift guide. We chose our favorite food products, cookbooks, tabletop accessories and entertaining pieces for the foodies on your list. From mercury glass cake plates to delicious apricot jam, there’s something for everyone. And, if you’re able to give back to others this season, Kristina has shared some of her favorite food-based charities below. xo, grace
