'Tis the season to give and get gifts. But why stick to stale candy canes stuck in a stained mug that says "World's #2 Dad" when you could get something that, well,
suck? To wit, we here at MUNCHIES have tirelessly racked our greasy brains to compile the best food-related gifts on planet Earth, and quite possibly the universe. Behold, The MUNCHIES Holiday Gift Guide.



Holiday Turkish Coffee Gift Basket

Sema Bal is a Turkish coffee messenger—it's like reading tea leaves, but more caffeinated. For a couple hundred bucks, she'll spend an hour predicting your future based on the leftover sludge in your mug, plus she'll throw in a set of teacups, her book, and her speciality blend Turkish coffee... everything you need to practice at home after your reading. ($200)

Pantry Cheese Grotto

Apparently, shoving a bunch of Ziploc bags full of cheese into your vegetable crisper is a no-go. If you want to do your cheese justice, you can keep a tiny cheese grotto (created by Jessica Sennett of Cowgirl Creamery and Bedford Cheese Shop) in your kitchen—a soaked clay slab keeps the box at a cave-like moisture level. ($350)

Korin Nenox Red Bone Handle Yo-Deba

Besides being gorgeous, this bad boy is seriously strong—ideal for butchering through bones and frozen-solid food. ($650)

Korin Inox Black Handle Yo-Deba

For something a little less heavy-duty, Korin's Special Inox knife does the trick—it cuts and feels like a carbon steel knife, but without the maintainence. ($278)

Défoncé Weed Chocolate

Défoncé is French for "stoned," which is what you'll be after a piece of this beautifully designed, cannabis-infused chocolate. The cocoa and the cannabis both "exhibit terroir"—perfect for the dessert and/or weed snob in your life. *Only available in states where weed is legalized. ($20)
