  • Blue Bottle Coffee Subscription


    Blue Bottle is a San Francisco-based small batch roaster that’s a little OCD about coffee. As their site says, “We take freshness and small-batch roasting to an extreme not considered practical anywhere else in the coffee business.” What does that mean exactly? Essentially, a cup of coffee so delicious that you feel it in your spine. The good news for you? They offer bean gift subscriptions. You need never sleep again.

    $18 at Blue Bottle Coffee | Buy

    (Per month)

  • Variety Box of Sausage


    OK. Nothing is funnier than sending someone a “variety box of sausages.” These sausages are made to order, and this box contains two five-pound packages of Italian Sausage and one each of the Classic and the Spicy. Ha. Sausage box.

  • Apple-ation Apple Brandy


    God bless a vintner with a pet project. Guy Davis decided to take advantage of the organic apple orchards in the Russian River Valley to make small batch apple brandy. Davis eschews the usual practice of fermenting just the apple juice; however, he leaves the peels and fruit in during fermentation for a deeper apple flavor. The results are spectacular.

  • Old Cavendish Fruitcake


    I’m mostly listing this because I think sending fruitcake on Christmas is funny, but also because these cakes got good reviews around the office. They’re packed with nuts and real dried fruits, as opposed to the weirdly colored fruity gels you find in most cakes. The consensus seemed to be, “If you like fruitcake, this is good fruitcake.”
