September 5th is International Bacon Day. One of the best smelling holidays of the year – I mean, are there many things that smell better than bacon cooking?? 🙂
And most of us love bacon (I think even vegetarians love bacon, they just have great restraint.) And so for the people who love bacon and the people we all know who loooooove bacon, a gift guide for the bacon lover.
9 Gift Ideas For the Bacon Lover In Your Life
*because 8 ideas just wasn’t enough
1. “B is for Bacon” Onesie
If “A is for Apple”, I think on balance it’s okay if “B is for Bacon.” Start ’em young with this onesie.
Available from Zulily: ‘B is for Bacon’ Bodysuit – Infant
2. Outlaw Soaps: Bacon, Whiskey and Coffee Set
For those who can’t stand to be away from their bacon, we bring you bacon that you can take in the shower. It looks like bacon, it smells like bacon, but it tastes nothing like bacon. So don’t eat the soap! These handmade bars do not actually contain any meat. They are in fact vegan (but maybe don’t tell the bacon lover that part.) These soaps will leave the skin silky smooth and dare we say, “bacony-delicious and kissable.”
Available from ThinkGeek: Bacon, Whiskey and Coffee Soap
3. T-shirt: Love, Peace & Bacon Grease
For those who want to wear their love of bacon proudly on their chest.

Caffeinated bacon. A medium roast, maple bacon flavored coffee, made with Direct Trade beans from Nicaragua.

5. Cast Iron Bacon Press
Adorable and functional…and heavy enough to even be a weapon if someone’s trying to steal your bacon.
Available from Williams-Sonoma: Cast-Iron Bacon Press
6. Bacon Bouquet
The world would be one step closer to perfection if bacon roses grew in the ground (heck, I might even garden.) But luckily the world gave us blogs like Our Best Bites to create easy step-by-step instructions for creating this bouquet of meaty love.
