As if it even needs mentioning, we’re suckers for some yummy food and delish beverages. I mean, #duh, right? Natch, we like to spread the wealth and share our fave goodies with our friends, family and even wedding guests (we’ve been known to espouse the concept that favors should be skipped unless they can be eaten or drank). So, for this Five for Friday, we’re sharing five of our fave food and drink related gift ideas — perfect for your wedding brigade, your spouse-to-be, parents in-law or even as favors for your guests!
Guys, can we just agree to frost every cake for the rest of forever with this stuff? Chocolate + bourbon + sauce = forever love, amirite? Oh, chocolate not your jam? How about caramel bourbon sauce? Yeah, I didn’t think you’d be offended. Give this to your bourbon-loving best lady or your dad with the sweet tooth and revel in the thank-yous for the rest of forever.
I’m a huge fan of good steak, and growing up in the northwest has given me a solid taste for high quality USDA prime cut beef product. Snake River Farms ranks way high with me (go ahead, drool over my Instagrams). This steak flight consisting of two of each American Wagyu Filet Mignon, American Wagyu Sirloin Filet and American Waygu Ribeye Filet plus Espresso Brava Salt, a Snake River Farms hat and a cooking guide all come in a neatly packaged gift box. Perfect for any ardent meat lovers — whether that’s dad, future hubs or the culinary queen in your crew.
For the rosè lover in your crew (there’s always one), this taster gift set is the perfect way to pop the cork and celebrate your friendship! With a bottle each of Matthiasson Rosé from Napa, Billsboro Rosé of Pinot Noir made in the Finger Lakes of New York and Pom Pomme sparkling cider by Descendant Cider Company in Queens and four stemless wine glasses, there’s no excuse not to be party-ready. Everything’s coming up rosè!
Whether it’s a late-night indulgence for your crew after partying hard with you or a little somethin’-somethin’ for your sweet-tooth-totin’ mother-in-law, it’s hard to go wrong with chocolate. The Belgian Chocolate Covered Indulgence gift set comes packed with eight gourmet Oreos dipped in chocolate and candies, four chocolate dipped gourmet brownies, four chocolate dipped pretzel sticks and six gourmet chocolate dipped graham crackers. Go on, give a little.
Traveling these days can be a little hectic and far from luxurious, and if your crew is coming from afar for your nuptials, you might want to treat them with this kit for the journey back (or pre-stock them for the trip to you). The Carry On Cocktail Kit comes with all the makings necessary to whip up two stellar Old Fashioneds, while still leaving your seatbelt buckled (though the tray table may not be in the upright position). Make your homies’ flights a little more enjoyable, and they’ll remember your wedding as the best ever.
