Community Supported Agriculture — For that friend’s New Year’s resolution to eat more vegetables, give a CSA subscription of fruits and veggies to MAO Farms.

Dipped in chocolate — Like the little girl in front of me at the Honolulu Chocolate Company, I want everything in the display case that’s dipped in chocolate…um, for gifts, that is. Choose among candied oranges, dried apricots, Oreo cookies, marshmallows and more for a delectable gift box.
Effervescence — Champagne doesn’t have to be the only thing that’s bubbly this holiday season. With a soda siphon, lovers of fizz can play soda-maker and carbonate anything, from plain old water to fresh squeezed fruit juices to even whole fruit like strawberries and grapes for a Pop Rocks mouthfeel.
Fudge — For the holidays, Naked Cow Dairy is mixing their fresh churned macadamia nut butter with Waialua chocolate for a luxurious, creamy fudge.
Gourmet magazine — Help former Gourmet subscribers relive the nostalgia with the ghost of Gourmet magazine past.
Homebrew kit — Keep beer enthusiasts at home instead of out trolling the taps for their favorite suds. Give a homebrew kit to encourage them to create their own brews. At Homebrew in Paradise, all-in-one brewkits include an Irish Stout and Canadian Blonde while at Oeno Winemaking, the Rogue Dead Guy Ale is among their most popular kits.
