With the holiday season comes lots of opportunities for gift giving. No matter what the occasion, who wants to show up empty handed? From work parties to big family gatherings, there are so many opportunities to show how much you appreciate the people in your life ... and we have the perfect solution to come up with something thoughtful and creative: regional food gifts. Whether you want to give someone a piece of their home far away or share a bit of your own hometown, we have some of the best food gifts from across the states.

This Danish bakery, located in Racine, Wisconsin, makes an award winning Kringle. And for just $9.99, you can ship them anywhere in the US. The bakery has been serving the community for over 70 years and the almond Kringle has nothing but perfect reviews. It is the perfect way to connect with the Midwest.


Experience the flavors of Creole cuisine with this gem of a restaurant, located in New Orleans. This meal does it all: Garlic Bread, Turtle Soup or Seafood Gumbo, Wild Shrimp and Cognac with Creole Cream Cheese Grits, and a whole Pecan Pie.

The Key West waterfront of Florida is home to Kermit’s Key West Key Lime Shoppe, and they make exactly what you might be thinking: key lime pies. The location grew so popular they expanded to a second location, and have become a favorite of both locals and tourists. Whether you want to reminisce on time in Key West, or you're looking for a gift for a lime-lover in your life, this pie is it.

Born out of New York City is the incredibly well-known Levain Bakery. If you've traveled to the East Coast, you've likely tried their cookies. The spot quickly became a traveler's destination, and who doesn't love a delicious cookie? This is the perfect gift for the New Yorker in your life, or anyone with a sweet tooth.


Take a trip to the Golden Gate Bridge or just share a meal that first originated in San Francisco. This Cioppino for two from Phil's Fish Market is an Italian-style seafood stew, coming from a restaurant based out of Moss Landing. The best part, it is a gift and you can also get in on it.


The Italian Beef Sandwich is one of the things that make Chicago. Thinly sliced roast beef dunked in rich jus will satisfy any hunger craving, and is the perfect easy to re-connect with Chicago or share your favorite meal with others. This set serves 10.


If you know someone from Jersey, you've probably heard them mention "pork roll." Now, you know what they're talking about. Usually, it's put on a sandwich or bagel. Trust me, they don't do it like this anywhere else, so this is the perfect gift for whoever won't stop mentioning how they miss pork roll (or if you just want to try it).

Corky's BBQ helped put Memphis on the culinary map. Since, this place has been voted the #1 BBQ in Memphis 22 times. This is their most popular package, including pork shoulder and ribs, BBQ baked beans and a dessert of your choice.

This is the perfect gift for any bagel lover in your life. Plus, you get to customize the order with the two bagel flavors of your choice. Everyone has heard that New York bagels are the best, but this way everyone can decide for themselves.
