28 Eater-Approved Gifts Perfect For Any Occasion


If you buy something from an Eater link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics policy.

Eater’s shopping newsletter, Add to Cart, spotlights the latest in cooking tools, food books, and drinks; merch for a good cause; and all the tableware and food-themed home goods that I would very much like to own (and thus, that I hope will pique your interest enough to click that “add to cart” button). But there are also times when you already know you want to buy something — housewarmings, birthdays, paydays, and days when you just feel like supporting a small business — and just need to be pointed in the right direction. For that, there’s this post: Think of it as a consistently updated gift guide and home base for the Add to Cart universe.

Here, you’ll find a collection of items mentioned in the newsletter that are still shoppable, organized into five categories: cookware and home goods, clothing and merch, food, drinks, and books. Be sure to check back — I’ll be adding new things to buy every week — and subscribe to Add to Cart to start your week with shopping inspiration sent straight to your inbox.

A decanter with a small amount of red wine Broc Cellars Decanter

  • $150

Prices taken at time of publishing.

As someone who often wonders if I should invest in a decanter, I enjoyed this Punch article from earlier this month all about a new school of decanters that leans into contemporary wine culture. Bay Area winery Broc Cellars designed this decanter for casual, everyday use.
