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!
Sweetniks offers the chicest lollipops in non-kiddie flavors I’ve ever seen, like Mojito and Salted Margarita, perfect as a grownup favor at your wedding (I’m dying to try the Mojito & Mint Tea flavors, I’m kinda obsessed with mints!). They also carry flavored marshmallows, caramels & chocolates.

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!
