The 10 Best Gifts For Foodies From The Renegade Craft Fair

By Anthony Todd in Food on Dec 3, 2012 5:20PM

It's coming up on the holiday season, despite what the weather is telling you. The holidays bring frantic, last-minute shopping trips for friends and family, often without much success. If you have any food lovers on your shopping list, we've solved all of your problems.

This past weekend, the Renegade Craft Fair brought together all of Chicago's most stylish people who love handmade goodies. A surprising number of the vendors at the fair made gifts that would be perfect for foodies. We found everything from prints to kitchen towels, from stuffed animals to dishes. These 10 are our favorites, and they are all available online. Buy now and your gifts should easily get here before the holidays. Support small business while looking like the most thoughtful shopper ever; we won't tell your recipients that you had help.

Descriptions of each item and links to each vendor are in the photo captions. Happy shopping!
