A Few Last-Minute Foodie Gag Gifts From Alphabets


If you don’t want to chew them, you can always throw them in the Sunday gravy.

If you’re like me, you’re running around today getting those few last-minute gifts. Presents for loved ones were probably bought yesterday or the day before, but there are small gifts you still need to buy — a token for the hostess of that Xmas Eve party, or a little present for the postman, or something to hand the bartender when he hands you your martini. Well, if they’re foodies, these should suffice — and even delight. Good stocking stuffers, too!

All available at Alphabets (115 Avenue A, 212-475-7250; 47 Greenwich Avenue, 212-229-2966).

For that steampunk or bartender: a mold that forms a pair of fried eggs into a handlebar mustache.

Everybody hates Vienna sausages, but what about bubble gum in a Vienna sausages can?
