Cousins Maine Lobster

The gift of food rarely goes unappreciated (or uneaten), especially when it’s a U.S. regional specialty that is rarely duplicated elsewhere — at least, not as well. With a few clicks, these four food finds can be gifted (or gotten): Cousins Maine Lobster ships sustainably harvested lobster from Maine in all sorts of iterations, from lobster roll kits to rich and indulgent lobster mac 'n’ cheese (cousinsmainelobster.com). Classic Southern cakes — among the most delicious we’ve ever tasted — were the calling for pastry queen Kim Adams Nelson, who whips up (then ships) such decadent delights as Jilly Vanilly (yellow cake with chocolate icing) and red velvet cake ($48, ilovedaisycakes.com). The “Made in Texas” wood box is almost gift enough, but Goode Company’s Brazos Bottom pecan pie inside, made with Texas pecans, will have you kickin’ your boots in delight ($36, goodecompany.com). There’s gold in the those Northern California hills: pure, organic extra-virgin gold in the form of olive oil from McEvoy Ranch — some of the best in the world (from $24, mcevoyranch.com).
