The dumpling masters at Michelin-starred chain Din Tai Fung are wrapping up some of their hottest offerings and freezing them so that your lucky gift recipient can eat them at their leisure. 

The hampers include the brand's world-renowned xiao long bao, or soup-filled dumplings, as well as shrimp and pork wontons, chicken and mushroom dumplings, fried rice, noodles, pork buns, kung pao chicken, chilli oil and more. They also come with Christmas cards and a cute DTF mug. The original hamper is priced at $90 (but it's valued at $122) and there's also a vegetarian version, available for $88 (valued at $113).
