In the wake of the year we’ve had, no one will complain if a gift you give arrives a few days late. After all, who could think about buying gifts in advance? (Apologies to my friends and family!) With that in mind, here are some presents for the food and cocktail enthusiasts on your list that you can buy (or send) ASAP.
And for the serious sweet tooth in your life, Jacques Torres (Mr. Chocolate himself) has plenty of holiday confections. The Christmas Sampler Hat Box ($122) includes many of his signature treats, including a 25-piece bonbon set, a dark chocolate Santa, a milk chocolate snowman, a dark chocolate Santa bear and a tin of hot chocolate. There are three locations in New York and the company will also ship, but if you need something immediately and you’re outside the five boroughs, Torres has kindly shared his signature chocolate chip cookie recipe on his website.
