Last-Minute Gifts from Sushi Samba and Schnebly's

Categories: Holidays
Some better ideas than your Christmas palm tree.
We're so close to Christmas the countdown is about to switch from days to mere hours. If you're one of those who gets shopping done early, pre-Thanksgiving early, then give yourself a pat on the back and get out of our sight. You're making us feel guilty.

For the rest of us scrambling to check off the names from our list, South Florida restaurants have a variety of gifts that make the perfect present or stocking stuffer for that food-obsessed friend. These might even work for those who care little about food!

5. Kid's Chopsticks from Sushi Samba
When it comes to reading, writing or learning a foreign language the old adage is get kids started young. There's no reason that shouldn't apply to sushi. These chopsticks are a mere $10 and are probably the finest piece of work Romero Britto has ever produced. They're also a step up from the rubber band trick many Japanese restaurants use to make chopsticks easy for kids to use.

4. Michael's Genuine Home Brew
Local on local on local. Michael Schwartz's growing restaurant empire released its namesake ale, brewed by Alabama-based Back Forty Brewery, earlier this year and its now served in restaurants around town. A gift idea: Forage a 50-foot salad of greens from your neighbor's backyard and pair it with a 22-ounce bottle ($11) for your friends or family.
