I don’t know about you, but for me, one of the best things about both travel and the holidays is the food! I love finding local restaurants, coffee houses, and sweet shops wherever I go. Then I usually like to bring a little something home with me to munch or sip so I can reminisce about my trip in full flavor. Here are some favorites that will make perfect gifts for the travel foodie in your life!

Who doesn’t love a warm mug of hot cocoa and homemade marshmallows?

Maple Candy, Vermont
If you’ve never had maple candy, you’re not living life to the fullest, y’all. It’s amazing! They’re just as sweet as you might expect, and they’re the perfect accompaniment for a chilly winter’s night. True maple lovers will even enjoy one melted into their coffee as a naturally flavored sweetener! These are made at hte Butternut Mountain Farm in Vermont, and they’re the perfect wrapped gift or stocking stuffer.

Boston Cream Pie, Massachusetts
If you’ve ever been to Boston, you know all about Boston Cream Pies. The chef at Boston’s historic Parker House Hotel first created the signature dessert in 1855, and you can order a fresh one straight from the source—the chef at the Parker House! They ship FREE to anywhere in the United States, and each “pie” serves up to 12 people. Sounds like a perfect Thanksgiving or Christmas dessert to me!
Get your by Christmas and order no later than December 15!
Wisconsin Cheese Mart, Wisconsin
Feeling cheesey? Do you want to? Consider the gift of cheese! Wisconsin Cheese Mart has pre-packed gift boxes to choose from, or if you want something specific, you can choose that, too. The company started in 1938, and to date, they sell over 150 varieties of cheese made exclusively on farms in Wisconsin. It’s veteran-owned, and each purchase helps support local cheese farmers around the state.

Kauai Coffee, Hawaii
I wouldn’t call myself a coffee connoisseur, but I do know what I like, and Kauai Coffee Company has the coffee I like the most! If you can go to Kauai and take the tour of their plantation (the largest in the United States!), I highly recommend it. However, if you can’t make it to Hawaii, you can still have it brought to you!
My personal favorite is Vanilla Macadamia, but they also have classic and seasonal flavors available. “Real” coffee drinkers, however, will want to try their Peaberry or other Estate Reserve coffees. You can choose from many different types, and select from whole beans, ground, or eco-friendly K-cups!
Get FREE shipping when you spend $100 or more!
Order no later than December 15 to receive your coffee by Christmas!
And for the real coffee loving traveler, check out this cool travel espresso maker! It’s perfect for campers, frequent fliers who don’t like airplane coffee, and that random hotel room that inexplicably didn’t come with a coffee maker. Take a look!
