We put out a gift guide for all your local foodie friends last week, but we got many more suggestions. There are tons of great gift options that you won't be able to get anywhere else. Get unique, small-batch liquor, a macaron subscription, an art print that celebrates St. Louis and more.

This is one of the priciest gift options we've found, but we would be pretty excited if this was under the tree come Christmas morning. The French patisserie has a macaron of the month club. Your gift recipient will get a box of six macarons the first week of each month, including a limited edition members-only flavor. It's $90 for three months, $180 for six months or $330 for one year. Order your subscription (and maybe one for yourself) here.
Flyover Coffee is one of those monthly clubs that someone will actually like. You can gift someone a six month subscription for $114 -- pay once and you're good to go. The coffee roasters are all from the midwest, and most of them right here in St. Louis, including Blueprint, Kuva, La Cosecha and Stringbean. Up the ante with a full year membership, or two bags a month for six or twelve months. Order gift subscriptions here.
Dandelion liqueur may sound interesting at best, but it's actually delightful, on its own or mixed into a cocktail. It was developed by Gabe Kveton of Water Street Cafe, his sister Maria and their friend Bethany Holohan. It has a brandy base, plus dandelion roots that are dried, macerated and steeped at low heat. A 750 mL bottle goes for $29.99; you can get it at Water Street, the Wine and Cheese Place, Parker's Table, Randall's, Vom Fass and Straubs, or online at the Wine and Cheese Place here.

Broadway Oyster Bar is practically a St. Louis landmark at this point, along with its instantly recognizable neon sign. The New Orleans restaurant and music venue is selling 11x14 prints of a photo of the exterior at night for just $10 a piece. They're available at Broadway Oyster Bar.
You can find Salume Beddu outside of St. Louis these days -- at Chicago's Eataly, most notably -- but a gift box is perfect for the meat lover in your life. The box features Salume Beddu's most popular salume: Finocchiona, Veneto, and Calabrese. It's not something you'll have to refridgerate until Christmas morning, either. Wrap it up and put it under the tree today. The box is $40, which conveniently includes shipping and gift packaging. Order via email at email@example.com or call 314-353-3100.
