Baristanet Holiday Gift Guide: Food Gifts (Are The Best Gifts)!

You can’t go wrong with a great food gift! Here are some local goodies that make terrific gift:

Vanillamore has themed baskets for everyone on your list. Pictured (clockwise from top left) a warm & cozy beverage basket; hot chocolate & mug theme baske; s’mores themed basket; and a tea time theme basket. They’ll also put together custom baskets. Baskets range from $18-45. Vanillamore, 349 Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair, 973-707-5373.

We love(!) everything at Marcel Bakery & Kitchen but when it comes to the holidays you must bring the best babka (Seinfeld fans know no lesser Babka will do). Pick up a Nutella babka ($8.95) and we promise you’ll be the hit at any holiday party. Buy an extra one to freeze and enjoy yourself. Marcel Bakery & Kitchen, 631 1/2 Valley Road, Upper Montclair, 973 842-4086.

For the tea lover, choose from the Holiday Tea Collection, a black (Holiday Tea), green (Christmas Tree), organic chai (Yule Tide Chai), rooibos (Gingerbread) and an almond/honey and cinnamon infusion (Nutcracker). Cha Ma Gu Dao teas available at Le Petit Parisien (10 Church St., Montclair ) or online at South Silk Road.

Up someone’s coffee game with a Bialetti — great for making espresso, cappuccino and lattes and it comes paired with a 12oz bag of Java Love’s Italian Espresso and a burlap gift bag ($51) Java Love, (Bellevue Ave. or Church Street, Montclair)

They are famous for their chocolate dipped pretzels, but Sweet Home Montclair also has great boxed chocolates for gifting.
