Welcome to Eater's 2012 Gift Guide Advent Calendar, where every day Eater will be bringing you holiday gift ideas — from the reasonable to the outrageous to the mindblowing must-haves. Click the graphic below to unveil today's pick, and as the holidays draw nearer check out the all the gift guides.
For the first entry in this year's gift guide, do check out Cool Culinaria, a constantly-evolving curated collection of vintage food and beverage art from around the world. Focusing largely on historic menus, there are posters, t-shirts, and more; having seen these in person, they are a sight to behold. And they are true rarities: Back in August, CC's co-founder told Eater, "Most of these haven't been seen by the general public since the night they were used tableside." From the "King of the Sea" menu (above), to the latest addition of a whole bunch of awesome retro cocktail art, to the "Tender Steaks And Chops" t-shirt, there's something for everyone.
