Tasteful Gifts

We think it’s safe to say that everyone on your Christmas list has enough gimcracks and geegaws. What they probably long for is a truly usable gift — one they won’t have to dust, but whose taste will linger as a reminder of your good taste (and theirs).

With just two days remaining before Santa’s arrival, we took a look around Las Vegas for some of the more offbeat food gifts. You can always give a bag of apples if you wish, but we think these are a bit more fun.

Thiercelin Green Apple Paste (200 grams, $24): Find it at The Drugstore, Wynn Las Vegas

French Fleur de Sel, favored by Alex and Stratta executive chef Alex Stratta because it’s not processed and retains the natural algae and character of the salty North Atlantic (8 ounces, $25): Find it at The Drugstore, Wynn Las Vegas
