It’s our very first Kansas City Holiday Guide and Gift Ideas for 2014!
This is by far our most exciting post since this is the one time of year that brings joy and cheer to almost everyone. It took some time but we think the results are worth it — there are gifts for every foodie in your life, and even a few that go beyond food. These are the gifts that Kansas City’s passionate foodie community have at the top of their lists, as well as the cookbooks, kitchen equipment, food themed bedding, and tasty treats that our locals already enjoy.
Back in November we asked people from all over Kansas City and social media to submit their favorite gift suggestions, and these are the gifts they chose. There’s something for every taste — literally, from jams to salts to chocolates to coffee to bed sheets. There are gifts to help you entertain, gadgets to help in the kitchen, and some high-tech gifts that will juice, chop, stir, and more.
There are quite a few local favorites, from gift cards to local restaurants to treats made in the city to a beekeeping class. And there are some amazing gifts made by Chicago Food Blogger members themselves, from cookbooks to photography to an app that helps anyone living a gluten free life navigate any restaurant, at home or abroad.
And some gifts were so popular they came up more than once — gift certificates to Christopher Elbow Chocolates, a Vitamix, gifts from Pryde’s Old Westport, Cockrell Mercantile Company, Taste of Kansas City Food Tour gift cards, and gifts from Function Junction.
And, of course, there’s so much more. It’s surely the only gift guide you’ll need this holiday season.
