Craving a taste of the Buckeye State? You've come to the right place! Dorothy Lane Market is an Ohio-based, locally owned gourmet grocer that's renowned for its made-from-scratch Bakery and gourmet eye when it comes to discovering food finds from artisans both locally and afar. It's with that careful approach that we've curated a scrumptious collection of gourmet gifts. Each year, we ship thousands of these food gifts nationwide and a repeating trend among our top bestsellers tells us this: Our customers love to give Ohio-themed gifts to their loved ones. It's an easy (and delicious) way to ship a taste of hometown pride. In fact, we often get asked for recommendations when customers call our gifting specialists. With that in mind, we've pulled together our 2023 list of our best Ohio food gifts for the OH-IO food lovers in your life!
The Ohio Artisan Box is brimming with a curated selection of artisanal Ohio favorites that are sure to impress. Indulge in our hand-rolled DLM Buckeyes, nationally recognized on Food & Wine magazine's "Best Snack in Every State" list. There's more to satisfy the sweets lovers, as we've also included the famous Killer Brownie® Triple Chocolate Brownie, a signature favorite that originated in our Bakery. Our love for chocolate also took us to Cincinnati where the 2023 Good Food Award Winner Maverick Chocolate Co. is operated by a father-son duo, so savor each square of the included Maverick Chocolate Co. 60% Dark Milk Chocolate bar. To balance out the sweets, this artisanal Ohio collection also includes savory Urban Stead Street Ched Cheddar Cheese, an English-style, clothbound Cheddar crafted in Cincinnati. Columbus-based Ohio artisans come to the table then with another 2023 Good Food Award Winner, North Country Charcuterie, one of our favorite charcuterie lines. We love how their salami pairs perfectly with Prospect Jam Co. Strawberry Pink Peppercorn Jam, featuring a unique blend of sweet strawberries with a peppery kick. Last, but not least, are our locally roasted and packed DLM Jumbo Premium Mixed Nuts. VIEW OHIO ARTISAN BOX.

The holiday centerpiece dish has never been easier when you have a fully cooked Heavenly Ham® at the table. We use an open flame to caramelize the signature blend of seasoning that generously coats the exterior, sealing in the flavor from the inside out of the slowly-cured, hickory-smoked ham. It's then spiral-sliced for easy serving. "The best ham ever. Arrived promptly and well-packaged as well. Highly recommend," said a recipient, leaving it a five-star review. This bestselling holiday ham is so popular, that we work with many corporate customers to ship to their team members and clients. In addition to reserving a Heavenly Ham® for in-store pickup if you are local we also ship this fully-cooked holiday ham nationwide and have it incorporated into gifts, like our Heavenly Ham® Sandwich Kit.
