In the South, our “thank you” gestures usually involve home baked sweets. Away from home, you can still show your gratitude by giving a thoughtful gift. Sprinkles is the standard go-to for LA; in New York there are several bakeries around town. But I think boutique baked goods are overdone, so I’m opting for a little summer snack bag for my foodie friend who has hooked me up with some great new spots in LA. Joan’s on Third has a great selection of cheese and wine that never disappoints. I hope he likes it!!Tweet this!
