Win at Black Friday with Our 12 Holiday Gift Guides

November 27, 2015

There's no snow on the ground in New York City—yet!—but there's no better time to start planning for the holidays. Luckily for us, the elves here at Food52 have been decking the halls and readying our favorite pieces from the Shop. They put together carefully 12 curated gift guides full of elegant bestsellers, delicious treats, hard-working kitchen gadgets, and more, so you're sure to find something for everyone on your list.

And in case you didn't notice, today is Black Friday! For Friday, November 27 only, take $25 off with any purchase of $125 or more (and don't forget that we're also throwing in free shipping). Take your pick:

1. Gifts Under $30

The perfect gift—from stocking stuffers and essential tools to little somethings and great books—doesn't need to be hard on your wallet.

Whether you're shopping for your best friend or your boss, you'll find hand-thrown mugs, bar cart goodies like this stainless steel shaker, and cookbooks destined to be new classics.

3. Gifts Under $100

Outfit your favorite cook in a big way (with some shimmery copper? a soon-to-be-favorite apron?) for just $100 or less.

4. 2015 Bestsellers

These are the pieces so popular that we can barely keep them in stock (which is as close to a "they'll love it!" guarantee as we can give).

5. Hand-Crafted

From hand-thrown ceramics and hand-blown glassware to carefully carved spoons and craft chocolates, there might be no better gift to give than a handmade one.

6. Stocking Stuffers

Good things come in small packages, and that's what we love about this collection: It's full of our favorite little somethings, like cocktail bitters, an earthen salt cellar, and small-batch mustards.

7. Only on Food52

We've worked carefully with artisans to consider every detail of these gifts—so rest easy knowing you've found the perfect present.

8. For the Food and Cocktail Obsessive

For the friend who's eaten everything, give DIY kits, salami subscriptions, and one-of-a-kind flavor combinations (hello, rose cardamom espresso chocolates!).

9. For the Baker

From jadeite cake stands to a baker's dozen of hand-carved wooden spoons, these are the gifts that take the cake for those who need to knead.

10. For the Coffee & Tea Geek

Hand-thrown mugs, artisanal beans, spiffy teapots, and more for the coziest, most caffeinated people in your life.

11. For the Cook Who Has Everything

Surprise the cook who has almost everything with elegant updates on old classics (like our bestselling butter keeper, or a modern dinner bell).

12. For the Cookbook Lover

Add to their cookbook shelf (or, um, shelves) with the tomes we turn to again and again for recipes, tips, and inspiration.
