The What We Covet Holiday Gift Guide, Part 4: The Foodie

We all know someone who loves to cook or bake, or maybe just someone who really likes to eat. For those who get handy in the kitchen, consider buying one of several Nielsen-Massey Madagascar vanilla products available through Williams-Sonoma.

Options include 4 ounces of vanilla extract, 8 ounces of vanilla extract, whole vanilla bean pods, vanilla paste, and vanilla sugar. The best part is that there are so many options when you give the gift of vanilla. For example, the sugar could be put to good use to sand the glass of a sweet martini, the extract could help make some cupcakes, the bean pods could be used for homemade ice cream, and the paste could be used in  a creamy frosting. Plus, bonus? Should you give any of these products to someone you see often, you may even benefit from the application of them! It's an easy way to sweeten up the holidays and someone's life.



  1. Thank you so much Cate for including us in your Holiday Gift Guide. It is so appreciated! And don't forget about our Pure Almond Extract, Pure Lemon Extract and Pure Orange Extract, also all available at Williams-Sonoma. Have a great holiday!

    Best Regards,

  2. Thanks, Matt! I'm particularly excited about the lemon and orange extracts, as I think that citrus flavors are a great way to brighten recipes. Hope all is well at Nielsen-Massey!
