The clock is ticking! Many of us leave gift shopping till the last minute so we wanted to make it easy for you and put together a list of some quick, last minute, local gift ideas for the foodie in your life.
We all know that gift certificates to your favourite restaurant or a favourite wine or craft beer make great gifts but here are few more great ideas that you may not have thought of.
Give an Amazing Experience
WindsorEats offers up some world-class experiences throughout our region, which is shown through us being named the Best Small-Medium Sized Tourism Business in Canada for 2017. Whether it’s immersing the history and flavours of Whiskytown, Canada on our Drinks of Walkerville, cycling through the scenic countryside with the taste of wine on your lips and a long table feast awaiting your arrival on our Wine Trail Ride, or rolling through Windsor’s urban core to discover our red hot craft beer scene on our Bikes & Beers, folks love what we do and walk away with memories to last a lifetime.
Can’t decide what experience to give? Then just get a WindsorEats Gift Card!

Their baking kits include Festive Gingerbread Christmas Wands, Almond Linzer Raspberry Cookies (Gluten-Free), Almond shortbread with Raspberry Jam, Earl Grey Cupcakes with a Lavender Finish, Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Brownies with Pecans and many other flavours.

Windsor Craft Beer Festival
Throw in a few tickets to the best craft beer festival around. Seriously. It was named the favourite in the Lake Erie region, both US and Canada.
That’s right, you can buy tickets right now to the 2018 Windsor Craft Beer Festival. This event usually sells out, so you’ll definitely win points for getting ahead of the crowd.
Edible Stocking Stuffers
French Macarons that have been painted with a holiday message? Yes please! Sweet Revenge Bakeshop has nailed the French Macaron game this year. These boxed desserts would be a perfect host gift, stocking stuffer or just a snack for yourself as you’re watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. But you better hurry! The last day to order is December 20! After that it’s a first come, first serve basis.
Cheese, Glorious Cheese
Listen, if someone showed up at my front door with a box of artisinal cheeses we would be best friends for life. Create a personal cheese box with amazing selections from The Cheese Bar and The Butcher of Kingsville. Or if you stock up you’ll have some on hand to put together last minute party trays for those unexpected pop ins that are bound to happen over the next few weeks.
Culinary Weekend Getaway
Create an amazing experience. Spend a weekend at Stone’s Throw Cottage and explore wine country, with Oxley Estate Winery literally steps from the cottage front door.
