From Sweet to Savory, Discover Three Locally-Made Holiday Gift Baskets.

Edibles at their best.




For the Vegan

Philly native and Studio City resident Kevin Bricklin describes his delivery-only business, West Coast Pretzels, as “the first and only soft pretzel bakery in LA.” His high-quality snacks come in six varieties, including one crusted with sharp, molten Cheddar Jack cheese. The vegan treats avoid butter and olive oil but still deliver the signature soft chew that Kevin grew up loving.

For the Sweet Tooth

At her Burbank shop, Plush Puffs, Ann Hickey-Williams sells 12 different kinds of all-natural, handcrafted marshmallows in flavors like Caramel Swirl and Chocolate Chipetta. They can be devoured on their own, melted in hot drinks or torched over a fire. Gift baskets can be created with marshmallows, graham crackers, chocolate bars and bamboo skewers. S’mores anyone?

For the Gourmand

Up in the hills south of the Boulevard, there is one neighborhood that is particularly sweet. On any given day, the delicious scent of Jessica Foldes’ chocolate chip cookies wafts through the air. Lightly crisped on the outside with a chewy dense center and topped with Maldon sea salt, Jessica’s recipe for Mrs. Chips’s Chocolate Chip Cookies is the perfect balance of sweet and salty.
