gimMe’s Gift Guide

December is all about celebration: epic feasts, festive gatherings, fun traditions – and of course, giving and receiving gifts. Always looking for fresh, modern gifts to tickle the fancy of family and friends, this year we opted to go a more sustainable route, with consumable presents that foodies will love. Here’s a little inspiration to help you navigate the season.

Christmas abounds with candy and confections of all kinds. gimMe’s Roasted Seaweed Snacks are small enough to tuck into a stocking, balancing out the sweet stuff with some healthy snacks – perfect for both adults and kids. 

A few minutes in the kitchen with our gimMe Seaweed Snacks or gimMe Sushi Nori is all it takes to create tasty holiday-worthy treats. Easy to make, these homemade goodies add a personal, thoughtful touch to your gifts.

Here’s our top 5 favorites: 
Seaweed Sesame Cookies
  • Seaweed Cookies*  - Versatile cookies can go big or small: wrap up a couple as a single-serving sweet, box up a dozen for an open house, or leave a few out for Santa! 
  • Seaweed Popcorn* - A couple scoops in a cute holiday bag make a no-fuss, instant stocking stuffer
  • Teriyaki Roasted Mixed Nuts* - Elevate the traditional nut bowl with this easy and quick recipe. Make a double batch - it’ll go fast!
