Gift Guide, Day 15

Bring Home the Bacon:

The best present I ever gave my former boss, Si Newhouse (the epitome of the man who has everything), was some bacon from Violet Hills Farm. I waited on line at the farmers market for hours to get it.  But that was years ago, when the bacon craze was new and there was no such thing as a Bacon of the Month Club.

These days, if you’re looking to surprise a bacon freak, you have to think beyond the edible.  And you certainly can.  My favorite is the very cool, very strange bacon wallet, but there are all kinds of other appealing bacon products. Bacon soap? Bacon lollipops? Bacon jellybeans? And don’t forget the adorable Bendy Mr. Bacon, who will sit on your friends' desks making them extremely hungry.

Just wanted to let you know how much fun your gift guide is! My mother has already snapped up several of your items, including some Rip Van Winkle and Jack Black Hand Creme. She wanted to let you know about another delicious bacon treat from our hometown of Nashville, TN, Piggy Popcorn from the Loveless Cafe! It is caramel bacon popcorn: smokey, sweet and hard to keep on hand. Addictive!

The Fremont Diner in Sonoma California has bacon bandaids in their gift shop and of course Mo's Milk Chocolate Bacon candy bar from Vosges - love this bacon theme, Ruth!
