Spanish-themed gifts at Thousand Pound Egg

Holiday shopping should be fun.

Thousand Pound Egg is a one-stop shop for gifts for every food lover. Here's proof:

For the cocktail enthusiast: Shrubs, concentrated syrups made of vinegar, fruits and sugar, have been making their appearance on Miami cocktail menus. Give the home bartender a set of exquisite Rozendal South African specialty vinegars ($35) for experimentation. The aged vinegars range from sweet hibiscus to genteel lavender. Herbal fynbos vinegar is infused with South African medicinal plants like rose geranium.

For the globe-trotter: Owner Karen Gavrilov creates one-of-a-kind gift collections. Consider one for the world traveler in your life, like a Spanish-themed collection (pictured; approximately $125) including Ham: An Obsession with the Hindquarter, by Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough, and heirloom flageolet beans from Rancho Gordo. Food gifts are also available individually. 

For the home economist: Gavrilov sells an extensive collection of cookbooks. While combing through a pile of vintage books, we stumbled upon a signed copy of The Fireside Cookbook by James Beard (price available upon request). For something newer: Jerusalem, ($35) by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi, is a gorgeous collection of photographs and recipes detailing the rich culinary influences of that city.
