Birthday Shopping - Gourmet Food, Quirky Kitchen Appliances/Dishware
- SaraASR Sep 26, 2011 05:22 AM
I have a friend's 30th birthday coming up and I'd like to buy him some off-centered gourmet food, quirky kitchen stuff, and/or dishware. The only thing is that he literally has EVERYTHING! Any particular shops in Boston/Cambridge/Brookline accessible via MBTA? Already explored Kitchen Arts, Christina's, and thinking of heading over to Cambridge today... gift necessary for Saturday PM.
THANK YOU! You guys are the best.
Pretty much anything you get at Formaggio will be great. Cheese, sausages, wine, jams, chocolates. Some teas and coffee beans as well.
It's a longish walk from Harvard Square, or you can take the 72 bus (stops a block away outbound, and right in front inbound).
Also, Savenor's Market in both Cambridge and Boston will have gourmet food gifts.
92 Kirkland St, Cambridge, MA
If you come into Harvard Square, you should hit Cardullo's (overpriced gourmet goods from all over the world and local, always something really interesting though), Black Ink (not strictly kitchenware, but always really cool things and def worth the look), and there's a new store called Follow the Honey, which has numerous kinds of honey and bee-related things.
