1. Local Standouts Gift Collection, $57.99
This gift features eight hand-selected products, including chocolates, caramels, popcorn, honey, roasted nuts, drinking chocolate, spicy condiments and dried fruit, all made in Utah (there's an additional cost for the gift crate). Try not to drool while delivering it. Tony Caputo's Market & Deli is Salt Lake City's leading purveyor of distinctive regional Italian and southern European foods. Its Old World butcher shop, gourmet chocolates, delicious deli sandwiches and specialty market are reasons enough to visit. But, we only need to hear two words: Cheese cave. Sold! (LL)

2. Chatles Viancin Silicone Lid Sets, $2.99 to $39.99
These lids are too cool and too fun. They adhere to pretty much anything, and they are adorable! The lid acts as a suction cup creating an airtight seal that insulates both hot and cold foods, deters pests and preserves freshness and flavor. Spoons 'n Spice offers everything kitchen- and cooking-related imaginable. With its ever-expanding inventory, it's no wonder it is one of the largest kitchenware stores in the nation. (LL)

3. Bourye Whiskey, 750mL, $79.99
Just talking about High West's craft whiskey and spirits makes you thirsty for it. High West's Bourye Whiskey is a blend of straight whiskey, bourbon and rye. It combines complex spices, deep earthy tones, sharp rye notes, caramel and vanilla. It's got it all. Founded by biochemist David Perkins, High West became the first legal distillery to operate in Utah since the 1870s. A grand addition to our state, High West served as a catalyst for more distilleries. The Park City restaurant is a ski-in gastro-distillery that offers tours. (LL)

4. Growler of Beer From Wasatch Brewery or Squatters, 64 Ounces, $12.99; Refills, $6.95
Pick a beer from the rotating selection on tap and get down to business. And maybe share with a friend—you know, the one who gave it to you (hint, hint)? Pop into the store at the Utah Brewers Cooperative to stock up on growlers as well as 32-ounce "crowlers" (which are not refillable). Or just select beers in bottles or cans. Your six-pack doesn't have to be boring, because you can mix and match, all for the same price. Also, check out the cool merch, such as clothing and accessories and glassware. (LL)

A New York photographer moves to the woods, and the rest is a delicious dream. This best-selling book is part art book, part cookbook. Turn the pages and you'll see why. Its 100 vegetarian recipes require three to four ingredients and very few steps to make. Each simple, rustic recipe is visually illustrated, hand-lettered and photographed by the author. Bon appetite. (CZ)

7. Localvore Gift Basket, $99
