We’re kicking off our 2014 Baltimore Holiday Gift Guide Picks with some foodie fun. These gifts are perfect for treating a hostess, stuffing a stocking or sending to out-of-town friends. They’ll perk up the Secret Santa exchange at the office, too!

2014 Baltimore Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for Foodies

Sassy’s Tomato Jam: This may be my favorite find this holiday season! Perfect on a baguette with a little slice of colby cheese — or on your next BLT. Made locally by Kate Beck, you can nab a jar at Trohv or Becket Hitch.

Kinderhook Snack Pack: The hand-crafted snackers you love are available in a multi-snack pack that perfect for gifting! You may want to save the salted Chocolate Chip Cookies for yourself. Just saying. {They also offer a personal snacking subscription. Hint, hint Santa.}

Haute Mess Kitchen Dry Rub and SauceThere’s a reason they call these sublime savories. Perfect for the grill maestro in your life.

Mouth Party Caramels: I simply cannot do a gift guide without including these. Guilty pleasure. Caramel never tasted so amazing. Plus 10% of their profits goes to cancer research and support programs.

Gordy’s Pickle Jar: Delicious pickles. Seriously. What more can we say? I mean, they’re great pickles. We like the sweet chips but the hot chili spears will add a little spice to your life.

Whoopie Pies from Flavor Cupcakery: Did you know Flavor Cupcakery bakes things besides cupcakes? Whoopie Pies are perfect for spoiling a child’s teacher, treating your BFF, or sweetening up your boss.  Get one for yourself, too.

Vinegar Sampler: Jalepeno, Black Mission Fig, Alfoos Mango… there are tons of flavorful vinegars available at E.N. Olivier. Mix and match a box for your favorite culinary enthusiast.

Sugar Cookies from La Cakerie: Beautifully packaged. Delicious. Midnight snack approved.

Crab Cakes from The Crab PlaceGive the gift of dinner. Maryland-style.
