We get how difficult it may be to shop for gifts for foodies. In terms of amazing kitchen gear and timeless cookbooks, what don’t they have? Don’t fret, people who want to get the perfect gift for the foodie you adore – we have you (and their) palates covered.
Any foodie would be disappointed to receive a plain ol’ gift basket of mediocre meats and familiar cheeses, just as a bottle of wine would be expected (and even dull) for a wine connoisseur.
Don’t let that deter you; instead, use it as motivation to discover new food-related treats for your foodies! And just in case you’re stuck, we’ve compiled some of the best gourmet gifts for foodies for the holidays.
20 Flavorful Gifts for Foodies
Give the cheese lover in your life three months of great cheese from the best artisanal cheesemakers in Europe. This unique set comes with nine well-known varieties from Italy, Spain, and France.
Most foodies are proud to serve food that they grew themselves, and with this super-easy, mess-free Shiitake Mushroom Log Kit, it’s easier than ever!
Bokksu will send them real Japanese snacks, candies, and teas every month right to their door (you can also select a one-time option). It also has texts that explain and tell you about what’s inside the Gift Snack Box.
You can add a personal touch to this scoop and bag clip set for the coffee lover in your life by engraving this Personalized Coffee Scoop.
Pizza stones are a great and cheap way to make pizza at home that tastes like it came from a restaurant. The Flame Top 14.5″ Pizza Stone is enameled, which makes it easy to clean, and has handles that make it easy to move in and out of the oven.
Something akin to a waffle machine, but for making churros and empanadas. It has a dough cutting circle and four nonstick plates that can be removed to guarantee uniform portions of dough every time.
Quickly caramelize pastries, crisp up fish skin, or add color to vegetables with the help of this Kitchen Torch attachment.
This personalized cookbook has space for 80 recipes, each accompanied by a picture, and a place to write comments about how the meal was. It’s handy, but it’s also very sentimental since they contain family recipes that can be passed down the line.
Everybody can find their ideal amount of heat with Chili Crunch Variety Pack. The black truffle, one of the three jars provided, is a foodie favorite because of its subtle sweetness and spice.
These Plain Dark Chocolate Truffles are incredibly smooth and not excessively cocoa-coated. They make wonderful presents for friends, family, and colleagues.
If you have kids who want to be the next Top Chef, this 3-piece Little Kitchen Helper Knife Set will make their day. It teaches your child the right way to cut and peel, and it has a finger guard to keep them from getting hurt.
Give them two cutting boards for the cost of one with this Reversible Cutting Board. On one side, they’ll see a beautiful black wood slate, and on the other, a marbled mix of light and dark colors. It will look fabulous in any kitchen.
This elegant Polished Marble Rolling Pin with Wooden Cradle is practical, too! The dough is kept at a cold temperature, which reduces the risk of sticking. They’ll have an easier time making baked goods like pies and cookies.
The Artist Olive Oil Capsule is a perfect (and beautiful) present for the foodie who recognizes the value of good olive oil but doesn’t want to break the bank on it for themselves.
Even if they’ve looked through hundreds of cookbooks in their lives, they’ve never had one like this. “The World Eats Here” is a book of recipes and stories about the Queens Night Market in New York City: a festival for street food where people from different cultures, families, and cuisines come together.
No food, savory or sweet, is complete without a dash of salt. From Black Lava to Pink Peruvian salt, this assortment of flavored sea salts is sure to please even the most discerning foodies.
We all know at least one person who always brings hot sauce with them. This Fermented Hot Sauce Kit is their present! Each set comes with all the ingredients, a fermentation tank, and step-by-step instructions.
So, granted, this Essential Apron is not cheap. But it has the stamp of approval from tons of foodies. It’s constructed from cotton twill so it’s durable, long-lasting, and available in a wide array of colors and designs.
This is like giving someone a nice bottle of wine in the year 2022. Members of Winc take a quiz to find out what they like, and then the service suggests bottles to send them. Give a one-, two-, or three-month subscription to your favorite foodie.
There are two kinds of home cooks: those who have a Le Creuset piece and love it, and those who want one. The Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron Signature Round Dutch Oven is a great first piece and comes in 11 different sizes and colors. You can even get it engraved with your foodie’s name.
