‘Tis the season—the season to over-indulge, and to encourage others to do the same by giving them food, booze, and gadgets that will help them consume food and booze more prolifically over the coming year.
Food gifts are great because they are the most selfish gifts: When the recipient realizes he can’t possibly eat all that bacon or drink all that whiskey, you have not choice but to step in and share the bounty. (Cash back!) And even if the gift is not immediately edible, culinary gear and gadgets can help people get more excited about cooking, mixing cocktails, or homebrewing—all skills that might make your life a bit tastier if you continue to be friends/lovers/whatevers.
But hold up—as with any genre of gift, there’s a lot of crap out there that’s not worth your hard-earned cash. So now that the tomfoolery of Black Friday is over, let’s get this clear-headed e-commerce thing underway. We’ve searched far and wide to find the coolest food- and drink-related gifts to order online this season—whether you’re shopping for a carnivore, a beer nerd, an itinerant boozehound, or a home-cooking wizard, we’ve got you covered.
