Online shops on Instagram challenged the norm of generic gift-giving with their curated gift boxes—pre-selected items placed in a pretty box—and all for good reason. Instead of the run-of-the-mill holiday presents we’ve all grown accustomed to, each box is carefully crafted to ensure that it matches the recipient’s personality.

Try considering these personalized gift boxes meant especially for your foodie loved ones.

Apéritif started out by designing grazing tables in 2016 before venturing out to the graze box (finger foods that are condensed in a box) business. Their well-known boxes come in two variants: savory and sweet, both including a mini bottle of wine. They also have a luscious chocolate-coated designer strawberry box.

Hosting successful dinner parties at home inspired the owners of Amazing Graze to turn it into a home-based graze box business. Their curated boxes are dominantly made of savory bites including, but not limited to, cold cuts, six types of cheeses, crackers, nuts, fruits, and a bottle of wine, which you can get in a small or large box. You can also ask them to skip the wine if you want to have more cheese.
