From kugel to custard, the holidays are full of yummy treats both savory and sweet.
These times bring out the gourmand in us all, but there are people in all our lives who live the foodie life all year long. If you’re not one of them, how do you even begin to shop for them?
You can start by reading this very guide. We’ve rounded up a list of the best holiday gifts for foodies you can find. Read on, and keep a napkin handy, just in case your mouth starts watering.
Holiday Gifts for Foodies of All Types
There’s no blueprint for a foodie. Each one is different, from the coffee snobs and cupcake lovers to the pasta makers and wine connoisseurs.
That’s why we’ve made a list satisfying all palates. Whether your sweetie likes food they can wear or DIY kits, we’ve got them covered.
If you’ve seen even one episode of the Netflix reboot of “Queer Eye,” you know all about the glories of good avocados. The only problem with this miracle fruit is how quickly it goes bad if you don’t eat it all in one sitting.
That’s where avocado huggers come in. They keep the second half of the avocado sealed tight, so it stays fresh. Our minds are blown.
Some inventions are so simple we can’t believe they didn’t always exist. The avocado hugger is the newest example of this.
This cute brooch is perfect for the Francophile in your life. Now all they need is a matching enamel pin of an espresso shot.
Salt Sampler Gift Set
Salt is more than just an item on a grocery list. It can be a delicacy.
There are plenty of pre-assembled gift sets available for your sodium freak, but you can also create your own with a little research and curiosity. Giannetti Artisans has a Tuscan Black Truffle Sea Salt that’s a great starter salt.
Le Creuset Heart Cocotte
If you’re dealing with a foodie, they may already have an item from Le Creuset, the standard bearer of Dutch oven excellence. We’d be willing to be they don’t have this one.
This Le Creuset piece comes in the shape of a heart to remind the cook of your gift and to add that most important of ingredients – love – to every dish.
Edible Cookie Dough
Yes, technically all cookie dough is edible, but that doesn’t make it safe. You can get around the problems of pre-cooked dough with these delicious doughs made specifically for eating.
You’ll also have all the variety you could want with flavors that include peanut butter chip, Snickers, cookies and cream, s’more, and red velvet.
Naughty Foods Make Nice Gifts
You don’t have to choose between naughty and nice when it comes to getting holiday gifts for foodies. Some of the most sinful treats make the best gifts.
We hope this guide has got your wheels turning when it comes to buying holiday food gifts. Be sure to check out our other shopping guides while you’re at it.
