Along with being jolly, ’tis the season to say thank-you! Everywhere we turn there are reasons to express appreciation–whether the gesture was hosting a holiday feast or house guests, being a great client or confident, or simply making the everyday bustle a little easier. Thankfully, showing gratitude is easier than ever–if you order and send any of the following favorites to a deserving recipient.
Coffee Cake from My Grandma’s of New England
Famous among Hollywood’s gift-giving elite (Barbra Streisand, Robert DeNiro, Quincy Jones, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, and Donald Trump are clients), this ultramoist and utterly perfect coffee cake from Boston’s My Grandma’s of New England is an incredibly sweet and thoughtful reminder of your gratitude–all for under $22!
Red Truck Coffee
What better way to keep the consummate host perky than to send some exceptional whole-bean coffee (3 bags for $38) from Red Truck Bakery & Market? Add some homemade granola (3 30-ounce bags for $31) from this spot 50 miles outside of D.C. (which also happens to be one of the New York Times‘ favorite artisan purveyors in the country) and you’ll be first on next year’s guest list!
Cioppino in a Bucket
For the seafood lover (and the person who deserves a few exceptional, deliciously light and wholesome dinners without lifting a finger), there’s no better choice than a half gallon of cioppino in a bucket ($68.95) from the Northern California coast’s Phil’s Fish Market. The Italian-style seafood stew, which won the Throwdown! against Food Network chef Bobby Flay, features Dungeness crab, scallops, prawns, calamari, mussels, fish, and clams in an exquisite tomato-based broth. Perfect for any winter eve!
