It's no surprise, then, that we fell in love with Kosterina's extra virgin olive oil cake, which is made from wholesome healthy ingredients (including, of course, its signature EVOO).

It also comes in a dairy-free, gluten-free version for any holiday guests with food allergies.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) policy for submission of prior notice for food imported for non-commercial purposes with a non-commercial shipper: FDA and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) typically consider not taking any regulatory action when there is a prior notice violation (e.g., no prior notice) and the food is imported for non-commercial purposes with a non-commercial shipper. Generally, a non-commercial purpose is one where the food is purchased or otherwise acquired by an individual for non-business purposes, and a non-commercial shipper is one where the shipper is an individual (e.g., the individual delivers the food to a post office or common carrier for delivery to self, family member, or friend for non-business purposes, i.e., not for sale, resale, barter, business use, or commercial use.)
Note: The shipper and the carrier are different entities. The carrier is the entity that transports the food into the U.S., and the carrier is likely to be a commercial entity even when the shipper is an individual.
The food for non-commercial purposes may arrive by international mail or any other mode of transportation, but must be shipped by one individual to another individual (self, family member, or friend) to be considered for non-commercial purposes.

While $70 may seem like a wild amount to pay for a little over a pound of pasta, you won't find anything like these Oprah-approved gnocchi anywhere else. Brainchild of Linda Miller Nicholson (aka @saltyseattle), these "crocci" are handmade and get their vibrant color from vegetables and herbs, not food dye. They'd make a special gift for the pasta lover in your life.
Pardon the pun, but any food lover worth their salt knows that the root of all flavor lies in a little sodium. Maldon is beloved by chefs worldwide, and this tub should last them a solid year before they need to restock.
Fly by Jing is a relatively new food startup making delicious Sichuan-inspired condiments and dumplings. This is the chili crisp that first put them on the map, and it can be drizzled over everything from noodles to fried eggs. It's not incredibly spicy, but it uses warming Sichuan peppercorns, dried chili, garlic, and more to create a complex and delicious pop of flavor.

Made to Give Hope based in Canby, OR makes hazelnut gift sets that are grown, shelled, and roasted directly on their farm. You can even find flavored ones for an extra special gift idea! I learned during my first trip exploring the best Willamette Valley wineries that Oregon is one of the largest producers of hazelnuts in the US, so this is an extra special locally-made food gift.
Locals know that Jonboy Caramels out of Seattle, WA are a staple at all of the best Seattle farmers markets. Owners Jon Sue and Jason Alm make the most irresistibly smooth and chewy caramels with organic brown rice instead of corn for a toastier taste. While they have a bunch of flavors, their boozy caramel gift set is probably something most of the food lovers in your life have never tried.
Olympic Provisions out of Portland, OR is another great option for meat lovers. They make fun meat stick bouquets that is a creative presentation of one of the best Pacific Northwest gifts. They also offer a meat-of-the-month club or pate sampler that any carnivore is sure to love.
Fish is one of the obvious best Pacific Northwest food gifts, but have you considered caviar? The Seattle Caviar company sells caviar harvested both locally and around the world. Their Idaho sturgeon caviar is a unique variety that any caviar lover is likely not to have tried.
Fish & Caviar out of Bellevue, WA is another local caviar company. All its salmon-based red caviars are from Pacific Northwest, fresh-caught salmon. They have a bunch of gourmet food products and services, including non-caviar fish products, but the red caviar option is the best option for the foodie who wants a more local product.
For over 15 years, Le Panier Francais has been importing the highest quality French food products to the U.S. and selling them at the lowest prices possible.

Featuring cuisine and foods from around the globe, iGourmet has a decent section of French foods, but where they excel is with their impressive selection of French cheeses.

The Gourmet Food Store has a wide range of international gourmet foods with a section with over 20 categories of French food products. Even though I live in Paris and have easy access to many of the products on this site, I was still impressed with the wide and diverse range of high- quality products they stock. Just the butter section alone had 20 selections, the cheeses 150 varieties, plus 40 types of foie gras and 50 kinds of cookies and sweets.
