The holidays are a time to thank your employees and spread some happiness to everyone at your office. My annual holiday treats round-up, expanded to include some holiday foodie gifts, includes some of the best toffee you'll find and donuts from a small shop in Chicago.
Stan's Donuts ($15.50 for six)
With names like Peppermint Bark Old Fashioned and Gingerbread Stan for their delicious donuts, you can't go wrong. The Chicago-based business ships anywhere as well.
Gundlach Bundschu Winery's The Chocoholic ($85)
This high-end gift includes a bottle of wine (2016 Zinfandel from Sonoma Valley), a box of Caramelized Graham Crackers, and a selection of fine chocolates.
Dave's Sweet Tooth Dark Chocolate Peppermint Toffee ($13)
Fantastic toffee from this small batch shop, Dave's Sweet Tooth is the confection startup by a Detroit firefighter. This holiday treat has a soft, but not brittle, crunch.
K & M Ultimate Chocolate Bar Gift Set ($250)
A single gift pack might make sense for a key investor or biz partner, but this set of 11 eclectic chocolate bars--made by two famous chefs--will be a crowd pleaser either way.

Omaha Steaks pulled out all of the chops on this holiday gift for 2018. It includes steaks, scallops, crab meat, chicken, and stuffed baked potatoes.

This is a holiday gift to make people in your office say wow. It's a massive 9-inch s'more--the graham crackers are coated with chocolate, and the marshmallow is made from scratch.
La Brea Bakery (Prices vary)
Luscious breads from a bakery based in L.A., these loafs are eclectic, including a cranberry walnut and one that combines pecans and raisons.
