Looking for gift ideas for a birthday, dinner party, anniversary, thinking-of-you, etc? Gourmet Gifts by Dinah Corley is an incredibly creative book filled with adorable, accessible, and inexpensive gift ideas for any occasion you can think of, especially when you’re looking for a more sentimental, thoughtful, from-the-heart kind of gift. No gift expresses generosity and sincerity more than a unique, homemade craft that is fabulously wrapped AND edible!

Corley’s book is the perfect balance of creating, crafting, cooking, and cute packaging! Her book contains over 100 enjoyable recipes with coordinating wrapping ideas and instructions for each.

Gourmet Gifts is a must-have on every woman’s bookshelf – fabulous gift ideas for any occasion. Here are a few of my favorites:


  • Hazelnut Brittle in a faux bundle of letters (Write a thank you note, invitation, or simple hello on the packaging)
  • Mango & Tomatillo Salsa (wrapped in faux papel picado)


  • Cool Cucumber Vodka (wrapped with a bottleneck tendril of leaves)
  • Sunshine in a Jar (topped with a paper bow)
