Holiday Gift Guide 2014: Omaha Steaks

*Disclosure: I received a gift certificate to try out this product for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

Back in October I had the chance to attend a blogger event. At this event we were totally spoiled with an amazing lunch which featured Omaha Steaks as the main course.  I mentioned this on Skype to my husband and he begged me to smuggle him some of my lunch back home.  Unfortunately for him, I'd already eaten it all.  So he was very excited when I discovered that I had a great prize in my take-home bag- a gift certificate to Omaha Steaks! 

Daniel had a great time perusing the Omaha Steaks website and drooling over all the delicious-looking cuts of meat and other food. Did you know that you can get all sorts of gourmet food on the Omaha Steaks site? It's true! Chicken, veal, burgers, soups, sauces... even dessert! We stuck with the basics for our order and decided on filet mignon.  The ordering process went smoothly and I soon had a confirmation email in my inbox.

Due to a weather incident in the middle of the country somewhere, my shipment actually was delayed four entire days.  I was a little concerned about the effect that this would have on my steaks.  Much to my delight, when the meat arrived, it was still frozen solid! Omaha Steaks knows how to pack! We defrosted and ate the first filet last night and it was tender and juicy and absolutely delicious. I'm really looking forward to sharing these beautiful cuts of meat with family members who visit this holiday season! 

If you're looking for a great gift idea for a person who loves food, or someone who already seems to have everything, I highly suggest a gift card for Omaha Steaks! With so many great items on the site, your gift recipient will be sure to find something delicious for his or her own kitchen.
