Sometimes we make Christmas shopping harder than it needs to be. But while we agonize over finding that perfect gift, what we should really be thinking is what makes most of us happy? And for a lot of people, that’s a delicious, chocolatey, edible, indulgent holiday treat.
So here are 15 snack boxes, gift baskets, and cookie crates you can send to someone just about anywhere for the ultimate Merry Christmas.
Anyone getting these in the mail are going to have a very merry Christmas. According to Milk, these “wintry one-bite wonders” combine double chocolate chip cake and crushed candy cane bits before they are rolled in red and chocolate sprinkles and minty sand.
You can never go wrong with cookies, especially as a gift. We mean, who wouldn’t be thrilled to unwrap these or receive a dozen delicious cookies in the mail? According to Oprah, the cookies are freezable and she microwaves her for 12-seconds just before indulging. And the business is owned by a husband and wife duo. “After he married a bake-aholic, former NFL player Jeff Allen helped nudge his wife Marissa’s obsession into a business,” the former host explained. How cool is that back story?
What’s better than chocolate? Nothing, we know. While Christmas parties may not be the thing in 2020, we can still show those we can’t be with them that we are thinking about them. And what better to do that with than this set of 8 chocolate turtles. “The thing about this assortment of eight decadent dark-chocolate cashew and milk-chocolate pecan turtles from Memphis chocolatier Phillip Ashley Rix is that each one is nearly the size of a tortoise,” Oprah reveals. “Advise lucky recipients to quarter them,” or not, we don’t judge.
Chocolate, the holidays. Need we say more? And not only are these chocolates a delicious treat, but they are aesthetically a treat as well.
What says Happy Holiday more than gingerbread? This holiday Gingerbread Snack Box from Bake Me A Wish! is a delightful little treat to send to loved ones all over the United States. This particular box contains “four decadent gourmet brownies (chocolate peppermint, gingerbread, cookies and cream and marble cheesecake), six refreshing chocolate peppermints, and 10 chocolate Santas. As the sweet finale, we include 4 festive holiday snowman and candy cane cookies.”
And if someone you want to send a little bit of holiday cheer to prefers a mix of salty and sweet, then this Tis The Season Star Tray is the answer. “Create your tray by choosing from our premium selection of Festive Mix, Pistachio Nuts, Cashew Nuts, or Holiday Mints.”
This assortment of chocolate and yogurt dip pretzels scream “yum!” Like Oh! Nuts points out, “chocolate-covered and yogurt dipped pretzels are a timeless treat.” And what is more timeless and traditional than Christmas?
Truffle infused sauce? Count us in! This special White Truffle edition is “sprinkled with organic coriander, resulting in a brighter but equally decadent sensation.” And it’s also “infused with same chili peppers, organic agave nectar, this meticulously crafted flavor profile will change your hot sauce experience.”
Now, this is a gift that keeps on giving, for 24 days to be exact. Send this to someone before December 1 and let the fun get started!
Not only does this particular tea set have six ethically sourced teas that create a “luxurious mix of flavors,” but it is also made by former gymnast Taylor Lindsay-Noel, who became quadriplegic following a horrific accident, Oprah revealed. And on top of all of that, a portion of the sale proceeds goes to mental-health awareness causes.
Like Granny Bella said these beautiful set of 12 chocolate-covered sandwich cookies are a dozen ways to say “I love you” and Merry Christmas. And a bonus, “each treat is crafted with high-quality ingredients, nothing artificial.”
Popcorn, pretzels, peanut brittle, oh my! This delicious looking Grand Gift Basket contains “5 oz. of Chocolate Drizzle Caramel Popcorn, 5 oz. of Caramel Gourmet Popcorn, 4 oz. of Chocolate Covered Pretzels, 4 oz. of White Chocolate Caramel Drizzled Pretzels, 3 oz. of Peanut Brittle, 3 oz. of Chocolate Covered Cashews, 3 oz. of Chocolate Almond Bark, 3 Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Squares, and 3 Ghirardelli Caramel Filled Milk Chocolate Squares.” Wow!
Oprah found the perfect gift for tea lovers (see above), but we can’t forget about those who very much enjoy coffee. This Red Bay Motherland 3-Pack Gift Collection are whole coffee beans that are sure to fill your kitchen with an aroma unlike any other. Simply put, Red Bay coffee is “artisanal small-batch coffee at its finest.” So be like Oprah and buy some for the coffee-lover in your life this Christmas.
How fun would this be, making your own hot sauces and coming up with your own unique names. This is the perfect gift for that hot sauce lover in your life.
According to Milk, “once upon a time, there was a Milk Bar creation called Candy Bar Pie. It was chocolatey, it was caramel-ly, it was pretzel-y, it was peanut-buttery, and it was very, very tasty — and now, we’ve brought it back in the form of a Snap.” Order a six-pack or a 12-pack and make somebody’s dreams come true.
Who else is hungry and hoping that someone sends them one of these delectable treats this Christmas season? Happy gift shopping!
