Thanksgiving may be the holiday focused on food, but Christmas is a close second. There are so many treats to be had: baked goods, chocolates, peppermint, coffee. We know how y'all love to buy local, so we rounded up some great holiday gifts from local restaurants, shops and cafes. Your friends will thank you when they unwrap a delicious, hand-made goodie instead of a Starbucks gift card.

Kakao Chocolate (7272 Manchester Road; 314-645-4446)

Christmas is in full swing at Kakao Chocolate. The packaging is so cute you won't even have to wrap it. Pick up chocolate snowflake lollipops, peppermint bark, hot chocolate mix, licorice buttons, even a chocolate tool set and a five-pound Christmas goose. There are chocolate reindeer, chocolate snowmen, chocolate bark, chocolate everything. Kakao really is a one-stop Christmas chocolate shop.
