Hudson Hawk

Hudson Made's edible gifts and kitchen goods
Hudson Made Flapjack Set
The perfect gift for flapjack fans

With holiday shopping 'round the corner, we're starting to make our lists--and check them twice.

One site we'll be visiting for inspired gifts is Hudson Made, whose newly launched online boutique spotlights small-batch items and artisans from New York's Hudson Valley, Brooklyn and beyond.

Among the edible offerings that we'll be stuffing stockings with are 18-ounce jugs of 100 percent pure maple syrup from Sugar Hill Farm ($27) and jars of soft, floral Lucky Star Honey ($10.50), both made in upstate New York.

Expertly crafted kitchen tools abound, as well: Find locally harvested, handmade black walnut cutting boards in three different sizes ($70 to $195); spoons, spreaders, forks and honey sticks from artisan Jonathan Simons ($6 to $98); and handmade tin cups ($20.50) and single-screen flour sifters ($24.50) from Jacob Bromwell, America's oldest housewares manufacturer.

There's also a curated selection of one-of-a-kind vintage lots, ranging from a Flap Jack set ($395), which includes a late-1800s cast-iron Griswold skillet, and a set of four circa-1880 Villeroy & Boch Redware pudding molds ($220).

And if anyone is wondering what to get us this year, we wouldn't mind having a few bars of Hudson Made's exclusive, handcrafted raw goats-milk Fancy Black Soap ($16.50 each).

Wouldn't that be (naughty or) nice?
