Is there a foodie in your family or friends, someone you know and love who is obsessed with everything in and around the culinary world? They’re so much fun to talk about food with, and it’s even better when they cook for you, but occasion after occasion, year after year, they receive another novelty apron as a gift. It’s time to say goodbye to “Kiss the Cook” aprons and measuring cups that look like whales and give them something that they’ll not only love and remember, but they’ll actually use and enjoy. Enter: GiftTree! We’re delighted to introduce our much-anticipated, highly curated Epicurean Line – a collection of gorgeous gifts including artisan sea salts, oils, vinegars and so much more. Onward!
With a delicate fruity aroma, silky texture and light lemon taste, this 100% extra virgin olive oil is crafted in Liguria Italy, and is essential to fine dishes as its delicate aromas raise flavors to new heights while not obscuring their essences. Accompanying the olive oil is a bottle of premium balsamic vinegar, perfect for bread, salad, pasta, salmon, and chicken.
Serve the olive oil in this ceramic terraced dish whose shape is inspired by the tiered hills of Umbria, Italy, designed by an artist who spends her summers in a converted olive oil mill. The terracing of the dish displays the gradation of the rich olive oil hues and are a marriage of form and function – a feast for the eyes and tastebuds.
Your favorite home cook can keep artisanal salts close at hand in the kitchen with this epicurean set that’s completely exclusive to GiftTree. Handcrafted of richly grained olive wood with an oil finish and a magnetic swiveling lid, this salt cellar is joined by two jars of Jacobsen salts – a lemon zest sea salt, perfect for chicken, salmon or pasta, and a pure flake finishing salt, the foundation of all seasoning. Presented in our signature gift crate, this collection promises to have any gourmand raving.
Perfect for any chef or foodie, this concaved solid wood herb cutting board and mezzaluna blade allows fresh herbs to be chopped with ease. Presented with herb seed packets and plant labels to grow fine herbs and lemon olive oil to serve them with warm crusty bread or pasta.
Our enduring gift crate is lovingly packed with two jars of pure Vios Greek honey and a lustrous, uniquely-grained olive wood honey pot and dipper. Called the “nectar of the Gods” in ancient Greece, honey has been a staple of the Mediterranean lifestyle for thousands of years. The honey in this gift is harvested on the mountain slopes of Crete, where honeybees gorge on the fragrant blossoms of wild thyme, resulting in a golden honey with a sweet, slightly acidic and spicy flavor.
Madeleines are traditional French sponge cakes that are delicately shaped like petite shells, and they’re absolutely perfect for dipping in fine teas. When paired with artisan teas from Steven Smith and arranged in our signature crate, this is a gift that every tea lover will be completely charmed by.
A bottle of Italian Moscato d’Asti, perfectly effervescent with a bouquet of white peaches and orange blossoms, is paired with traditional Turkish Delights, one of the most popular and well-loved treats, representing Turkish hospitality. Not overly sweet with just the right consistency, these Turkish Delights are made with double roasted pistachios for that unique blend of sweet and salt.
Perfectly popped white popcorn is seasoned with fine craft salts from around the world, creating a gift that every popcorn lover will find completely irresistible. Is there anything more comforting than hot, fluffy popcorn that’s seasoned to perfection? We fill our enduring signature gift crate with two pounds of raw white popcorn kernels and three unique salt cellars from one of the world’s finest salt-makers, Bitterman Salt Co.
The flat paddle, beveled edge and tapered handle of this pizza peel allow any home chef to easily and steadily transfer delicious homemade pizzas or baked goods in and out of the oven. When the extra touch of personalization is added, this gift becomes one that will be treasured for years to come.
For two weeks every spring, White Tupelo Trees in the Southeastern swamps bloom with fine sunburst-shaped flowers that glisten with nectar. Savannah Bee Company’s Tupelo Honey has buttery undertones and a mellow, clean-finishing sweetness. It’s like a thick, slow-moving river of liquid sunshine. Tupelo Honey complements a variety of foods but it’s so delicious, we like it best just by the spoonful.
Your gift will arrive in a 20 ounce bottle, carefully sealed by hand-dipping in Tupelo beeswax. Labeled with a Savannah Bee wax seal, each bottle is hand-numbered to show its unique place in this limited edition line of Tupelo honey bottles.
In the fertile Modena plains, where Trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes flourish, the Mussini family’s balsamic vinegars have become quintessential to cooking with passion. “Emozione” is a 20 year aged balsamic that gives a truly unique flavor to any meat, fish, cheese, vegetable, bread, berry or dessert. Presented in a gift cube with a designated number in the series produced, this outstanding balsamic’s uses are virtually limitless.
Dried fruits including peaches, plums, pears and berries, along with plump almonds and walnuts are all fresh from the orchard in this enduring crate. Four sections are filled to the brim with healthy snacks and a little indulgence in double chocolate-dipped apricots, perfect for the gourmand in your life.
In the Pacific Northwest, the climate is perfect for orchards to burst with pears, berries, quince and hazelnuts. Our Oregon growers have created three fresh fruit pâtés, a delicacy that’s perfect on bread or crackers, and an even better accompaniment to fine aged cheeses.
With an olive wood serving spoon that will never upset the delicate balance of flavors in the fruit, these pâtés are nestled in our exclusive birchwood crate, creating a lovely gift for foodies or any sophisticated sweet tooth.
An extraordinary tour through Europe with a Dutch cheese curler, a cheese round from the French-Swiss border, Italian truffle honey and much more.
The Boska Cheese Curler enables anyone to slice wafer thin curls of the included Tete-De-Moine cheese, a semi-hard cheese from cows raised in the Jura Mountains of the French-Swiss border. Topped with luscious Italian truffle honey or Oregon-grown quince fruit pate, this is a gift that every cheese lover will find totally irresistible.
Two distinctively flavored sea salts, hand-collected off the coasts of Spain and Ibiza, are ready to present to your favorite foodie or culinary adventurer. Silva Regal, a sea salt hand-harvested on the idyllic Atlantic coast of Spain, is spiced with 5 different peppercorns that make a perfect complement to any meat, fish, pasta salad, or soup. It is placed in our signature gift box with a ceramic cellar of Sal de Ibiza, a 100% natural sea salt collected by hand in the ocean pools off the coast of Ibiza, a Spanish island in the cerulean Mediterranean. When these salt crystals dissolve in your mouth, it’s clear that warm sun and abundant ocean breezes are all that’s needed to craft perfect sea salt.
GiftTree has partnered with Bee Local, a Pacific Northwest Artisan beekeeper, to present a unique gift that’s sure to bring a little sweetness to any occasion. Two jars of raw Oregon honey – one a single origin Willamette Valley honey, and the other a single origin honey gathered from hives placed around the lush farmland near Mt. Hood – are presented with a smooth and supple olive wood honey dipper. Arranged lovingly in our signature gift box, this gift is designed to tantalize the taste buds.
