More and more people are embracing food’s awesomeness as a holiday gift. We personally love a cheese log, and may even attempt a homemade one for this year’s office potluck.
But, if you haven’t the time nor the inclination to make your own impressive food gifts, here are a few pre-made pretties that will satisfy everyone on your gift list. And, for those die-hard foodies out there, feel free to share this list with anyone who’s asking, “But, what do you want this year?”

This dreamy mixture — made with the milk from 54 lovely goats in Vermont — is best eaten straight out the damn jar. But, fine, apples and cookies are great dippers, too.

You may not be able to get your hands on a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle bourbon, but these boozy chocolate gems could be the next best thing. They're handmade in Kentucky with Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year. We won’t judge if this gift mysteriously goes “missing.”
