Searching high and low for foodie gifts that will bring joy to your loved one’s stomach? These foodie gift ideas will inspire you.
Any foodie lover will agree that some of the best gifts are the ones that either delight their tastebuds or assist them in creating something scrumptious.
I say this as a foodie that literally goes nuts every time I’m gifted something food-related. My sister-in-law gifted me truffles on one of my birthdays and I pretty much ate them in one sitting. True story. Don’t judge.
That’s because experiences are one of the best gifts. That includes delicious foods and things that allow us to prepare our favorite or new recipes. It’s all an experience.
The key to a foodie’s heart is their stomach.
With Christmas around the corner and birthdays coming up all year round, here is a list of foodie gift ideas. Any of these presents for foodies will delight the foodie lover in your life.
Fun and Delicious Foodie Gifts
Always a home run with chocolates. It’s a go-to gift that you can never go wrong with.
If there are any local small chocolate shops in your area, I suggest stopping in and seeing what they have available. Definitely have to taste test a few while you’re there. Right?
2. Chocolate Covered Fruit
One of my all-time favorite gifts is a fruit basket or chocolate-covered fruit from Edible Arrangements. I’ve received several throughout the years and they never disappoint. The fruit is always fresh, sweet and the chocolate-covered ones are always a plus. They are great for sharing.
3. Cheese Selection
A well-put-together cheese basket, especially during the holiday season is a great gift.
At the office, we like to send a few clients a collection of cheese boxes from Cowgirl Creamery and we always receive positive feedback. Sometimes I call local gourmet cheese shops in different cities. I have them prepare specialty gift boxes to be delivered and pair them with specialty wines and other treats.
Harry & David have a great selection of meat & cheese charcuterie boards you can have delivered. Who doesn’t love a charcuterie board?
Gourmet popcorn is great for families to share. Porpcornopolis has a variety of different flavors and for every occasion.
5. Local Baked Goods
Think of their favorite bakery or baked goods. Whether the location is near them or you, order their favorite and surprise them with delivery.
Last year, I heard my dog’s physical therapists mention her obsession with pies. So, I ordered her a blueberry pie from our favorite local pie spot and delivered it when I dropped my dog off for a session. She absolutely LOVED it and went on and on about it the next time I returned.
Foodie Gifts: Subscriptions & Gifts Cards
6. Butcher Box
If your foodie is a carnivore, they will appreciate a gift box or subscription from Butcher Box. They deliver 100% quality, organic meats, chicken, and fish. With just one box, you’ll be saving them money on groceries.
As a huge fan and subscriber of Butcher Box, I highly recommend it. We look forward to our box every month.
Cratejoy has a variety of snack, beverage, or food subscription boxes that any foodie will love. Sign up for one month or two, cancel at any time.
8. Gift Certificate to their Favorite Restaurant
Think of their favorite establishments or any of the places they’ve been wanting to try.
Gift certificates sometimes can be impersonal, but they don’t have to be. This kind of gift means that you gave it thought and you were paying attention.
Pair the gift certificate with their favorite bottle of wine or champagne. Maybe they can bring the bottle with them to the restaurant, as long as the restaurants allow it.
Foodies normally love to eat out and try all the best restaurants. A gift from Goldbelly will allow them to try dishes from some of the most popular foodie spots from around the US.
Cooking & Kitchen Foodie Gift Ideas
A cookbook is a thoughtful gift for foodies or anyone that enjoys cooking. Present them with a cookbook with recipes of their favorite cuisine or perhaps, something that helps them prepare quick meals.
It’s also budget-friendly. For under $20, you can gift someone a gift that they’ll use repeatedly for years to come.
An InstantPot is the kitchen appliance everyone should have in their kitchen. I have gifted this appliance and still get unsolicited appreciation about how much it has changed this person’s life.
Yes, it’s that amazing. It helps save time in the kitchen and helps prepare fantastic meals. During the fall and winter, it’s the best appliance to prepare cozy soups, chili, and stews.
If your foodie doesn’t have one, I’m 99% sure they have their eye on one.
Gifts for Coffee Lovers
Do you have a coffee lover in your life? Here are 30+ coffee-related gift ideas.
12. Air Fryer
An air fryer is another fantastic kitchen appliance that recently has become popular. You can make everything from fries to a roast in one (depending on how big it is). Everything comes out delicious, crispy, and healthier than an actual fryer.
Personally, I own the Cuisineart Airfryer Oven and we LOVE it.
13. KitchenAid Mixer
A kitchen aid mixer is a dream appliance for foodies that love to bake. They will be able to whip cream in a matter of seconds. Mix dough without having to
The best part of a KitchenAid mixer is that there are attachments they can buy down the line that makes this appliance versatile. Like, a pasta maker.
14. Personalized Pizza Board
A personalized pizza board is a great addition to any kitchen. Not only does it look cool against a backsplash, but you’ll also be inspiring any foodie to start making their own pizza if they haven’t already.
15. Pasta Maker
Fresh pasta is the best! Who doesn’t love Italian cuisine?
A pasta maker is one of those gifts most people don’t usually think of buying for themselves. Once they are gifted with one, the idea of making sounds fun and doable. It will quickly become a Sunday favorite activity.
Cheese, chocolate, and lots of memories will be created with this fondue set. It’s fun, classic, and always a yummy time.
17. Le Creuset Cookware
If you’re looking to impress a foodie that loves to cook, a gift from Le Creuset will have them swooning. From the skillet to the dutch oven to their cast iron pans, there is no wrong choice. This is cookware that will and should last a lifetime.
Cozy & Warm Gifts
Love to be cozy and warm? Especially once the fall and winter seasons hit. Here are some cozy gift ideas.
Foodie Couple Gift Ideas
18. Cooking Classes
A cooking class is a great activity that involves food. If you’re looking for a gift for a couple that shares a love for food, this is an option that will provide a fun time with delicious food, and perhaps they’ll even make new friends.
19. Food Tour
There isn’t a foodie I know that doesn’t love a great food tour. Check in their local neighborhood and nearest city for food tours near them. Perhaps plan and surprise them with a foodie walking tour. You’ll never know what you’ll discover.
