It's here! It's here!

It's our very first Chicago Food Bloggers Holiday Gift Guide!

At nearly 150 pages, it was quite a doozy to put together! But we think the results are worth it -- there are gifts for every foodie in your life, and even a few that go beyond food. These are the gifts that Chicago's passionate food blogging community have at the top of their lists, as well as the cookbooks, kitchen equipment, and tasty treats that our members already enjoy.

Back in November we asked our members to submit their favorite gift suggestions, and these are the gifts they chose. There's something for every taste -- literally, from jams to salts to chocolates to coffee to blood pudding. There are gifts to help you entertain, gadgets to help in the kitchen, and some high-tech gifts that will juice, chop, stir, and more.

There are quite a few local favorites, from gift cards to local restaurants to treats made in the city to a beekeeping class. And there are some amazing gifts made by Chicago Food Blogger members themselves, from cookbooks to photography to an app that helps anyone living a gluten free life navigate any restaurant, at home or abroad.

And some gifts were so popular they came up more than once -- gift certificates to The Chopping Block, a Vitamix, gifts from American SpoonVosges ChocolatesLettuce Entertain You gift cards, and gifts from Tastes of Chicago.

And, of course, there's so much more. It's surely the only gift guide you'll need this holiday season.

Thanks to all of our amazing contributors! On behalf of all of the Chicago Food Bloggers, we wish you many delicious gifts this holiday season!
