2010 holiday gift guide: the new orleans lover

This is our first gift guide for a reader (who would like to remain anonymous for "surprise" reasons.) He wanted some help with a Christmas gift for his boyfriend who loves New Orleans.

A gift basket to make coffee and yummy beignets like the ones at Cafe du Monde, $25

The World Famous Hurricane Mix from Pat O'Briens on Bourbon Street, $4.50 (not incl. rum) - now all you need is the piano!

A Trombone Shorty CD to dance around the living room (beignet in one hand, hurricane in the other), $12.65

A New Orleans print to frame and show off his NOLA pride, $15 for an 8x10

Glazed Pecan Praline Caramels inspired by New Orleans, $9

A jester hat so he is ready for Mardi Gras, $6

One of my favorite things to do for birthdays, showers, etc. is to put together my own gift baskets. A New Orleans gift basket with all these goodies would be a great idea.

Anyone else have good NOLA gift ideas?


  1. I'm not guessing this one to protect this "friend's" anonymity but i totally know who this is for. He's going to love it. Also, is our next group trip to NOLA?
