Look no further than Santa Barbara Gift Baskets for THE best selection of locally made food, wine, beer and treats! Not sure what to get that fussy foodie in your life? Let the crew at SB Gift Baskets put together the perfect gift basket for you. (They even make deliveries for locals!)

Central Coast Inspired Spice Mixes

We can’t get enough of the spices at Solvang Spice Merchant. Not only are these guys one of our favorite stops on our new Solvang food tour, but they have an incredible selection of hard-to-find exotic spices plus Central Coast inspired mixes like their Santa Maria style rub and Sideways Pepper mix. Yum!

Foodie Ornaments

Got a fussy foodie in your life? Then you can’t go wrong with a food-inspired gift like the darling bok choy, leek and other veggie ornaments from Raoul. Next time you’re in the Funk Zone, be sure to peruse this boutique of West Coast style home decor, local art, and of course their seasonal Christmas tree hung with all the best (and scrumptious!) ornaments.

Vinotherpay Skin Care

Make an eco-concious purchase of incredible skin care products made from upcycled California winery byproducts (aka leftover grapeseeds) from The Grapeseed Co! We can’t get enough of this vinotherapy line of soaps, cleansers, oils, and more. Find them online or visit their collective shop inside the Waterline Building in the Funk Zone.

Food Tour Gift Cards

Of course, we’d be totally remiss if we didn’t mention the obvious: a gift card from us! Send your foodie loving friends and family on one of our food tours (or wine tours!) in Santa Barbara and Solvang. Heck, get one for yourself while you’re at it!
