It’s that time of year again, and as always, we’ve got a wonderful assortment of gift ideas for the foodie, chef, and baker in your life. Check out our list of must have items below and stop in to visit us at 10 E. Main Street for all your holiday needs.
1. The Goldie
Sour dough bread and sour dough recipes in general have taken the world by storm, and for good reason. Not only does the dough or item you create taste delicious, but it is also a great low-gluten option and some individuals with gluten sensitivities or intolerances can still eat sour dough.
Keep your sour dough starter at the perfect temperature with The Goldie by Sourhouse. According to their website, Goldie by Sourhouse™ provides just enough warmth to keep a sourdough starter consistently in the “Goldilocks Zone” of 75-82ºF (~24-28ºC) where it is the most active and healthy, so bakers can bake their best bread all year round without warming up their whole house.
2. Klean Kanteen
Take your adventures to a new level with this perfectly designed, vacuum insulated product. Drinks can stay cold up to 145 hours and hot for up to 47 hours. These are ideal for those who love to get outdoors, but can also make a great addition for someone who just wants to have their coffee stay hot all day long.
3. Le Creuset Bread Oven
The perfect complement to your purchase of The Goldie, is a Le Creuset bread oven. This item is sure to take your bread to the next level. Made from the same high-quality cast iron, this oven is designed to trap and circulate steam for a maximum rise and even browning of your bread. This should help ensure a perfect crust every time.
If you’re looking for a slightly more versatile option, then Le Creuset also has their entire line of dutch ovens which can also be used quite well to bake bread, cook your next family roast, or throw together a delicious soup or stew.
4. Gift Baskets

5. Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar Sample Packs
We know that choosing just one of our olive oils or balsamic vinegars is just about impossible. That’s why we offer our variety gift packs so you don’t have to limit yourself. Instead, choose from our preselected packs or customize your own. Each pack comes with six 60 ml bottles which will give newbies and olive oil experts both dozens of pairings to spice up their next dish.

9. Champagne and Bubbles
