Fruute‘s come out with some fabulous new cookie shapes and flavors just in time for Valentine’s Day, but I just can’t help thinking how great these would be as favors. Is anyone else dying over that teardrop shaped lavender noir cookie??

So far we’ve covered sweet & savory foodie items perfect for any Brooklyn themed out of town gift bag, now for some more ideas for the actual tote! Going custom would be awesome too, but if there’s no budget, these are some great readymade options.
PS. Remember my wedding totes? Erica from Thoughtful Day designed them and I still love ’em!

Sometimes I get requests for stuff to put in out of town giftbags for weddings, and one thing I know about giftbags is that they HAVE to have some yummy stuff in them. With Brooklyn weddings especially, its easy because we’ve got some great artisanal vendors all around us, so today I thought I’d share a foodie giftbag with you to help get you started. All of these items are on the more savory side, next time I’ll share with you the sweet stuff!

So I’m not much of a drinker, but I know plenty of people who are, and at the holidays, booze is a great hostess gift (or so I’m told 🙂 All these bottles hail from the wonderful Brooklyn borough, so feel free to buy a bottle of each and support your local distilleries!
