Holiday Gift Baskets from Downtown Del Ray

Holiday Gift Baskets from Downtown Del Ray

With the holidays around the corner, get your shopping done right here in the heart of Del Ray. We recently took a stroll down the Avenue in search of our favorite sweet and savory treats — perfect for anyone on your holiday gift giving list.

Custard truffles from the Dairy Godmother are delicately nestled in a box adorned with a ribbon — they are all ready to take to your next holiday party.


Signature coffee beans from St. Elmo’s come ground or whole bean.


The salt and chocolate Bequet caramels (oh, and wine of course) from Planet Wine are amazing.


Make your own tasty basket of nibbles with an assortment of cheese and crackers from Cheesetique. There’s also a wide selection of wine and beer to complement your selection.

A warm loaf of fresh-baked bread from Caboose Cafe & Bakery will be more than welcome at your next dinner party or soup exchange. They’ll even slice it for you.


Don’t forget the salty meats — these salamis and sausages can be found, yet again, at Cheesetique.


Pork Barrel BBQ Sauce can be purchased (for now, while we await the opening of the BBQ restaurant) from Let’s Meat on the Avenue.


The beer selection at Market 2 Market is amazing — over 100 microbrews and craft ales. They even have boxes to create your own hand-picked 4 or 6-pack.


These lavender shortbread cookies from the Dairy Godmother are a delight. And don’t forget your four-legged friends — dogs love the Dairy Godmother “squirrels.”

  1. This post made me hungry! Thanks for the great compilation of holiday ideas. I’ll have to plan my route and make a trip to Del Ray for a little seasonal shopping. :-)
