Gift Guide for Foodies

Have a cooking enthusiast on your list?  Check out my Gift Guide for Foodies!

When I was younger, my family would always resist giving my kitchen items for Christmas.

The one exception was my Mom.

Because…she knew.

Although kitchen items are practical gifts, if you have someone on your list that loves to cook, chances are they LOVE to get kitchen items as gifts.

Here is my Gift Guide for Foodies, that has my top picks for the cooking enthusiasts on your list.

Herb Garden

Every foodie needs fresh herbs! I have always bought them on a regular basis, but through the years I’ve thrown out more than I’d care to admit. Enter the Miracle Grow Aerogarden!

With this advanced hydroponics garden, you can grow up to 6 plants at any time. Right now I am growing two types of basil, parsley, mint, thyme, and dill.

I love that I’m able to grow organic herbs indoors with this garden.

FINEX Cast Iron Skillet

It is a skillet, it’s a weapon, it’s…..

I kid, I kid.

But seriously guys, this skillet is heavy – which is just what someone that is serious about cooking needs.  This is the kind of skillet the receiver will be passing down to their children.

I love the ergonomic spring handle that stays cool so that you can hold it while you cook. The pan comes pre-seasoned with organic flaxseed oil and has a thicker casting that is designed to optimize searing and seal in flavors.

Membership to Great Wine Club

If you have a wine lover on your list, they are going to love 90 + Cellars! It is the perfect wine club for those who enjoy great wine! You can get either three or six bottles delivered monthly for as low as $50.

Wine club shipments are sent quarterly, making it a gift that keeps on giving year around.

Ninja 4 in 1 Cooking System.

You will be seeing a full review in coming months, but I couldn’t not mention the Ninja 4 in 1 Cooking System.

I got one a few weeks ago, and I can honestly say that we’ve had more meals cooked in it than not. I am obsessed with how this cooking system lets me do all the steps in one device, meaning less dirty dishes.

More than just a great slow cooker, it also has a stove top, oven, and steamer function. Heck, you can even bake a cake in this baby! (But I haven’t tried that one yet.)

Instant Pot

I’ve heard Insta Pots called a Mom’s best friend, and they are! When everyone is hungry, and dinner hasn’t been started, there is nothing else that will better help get food on the table in a flash. This is a kitchen gift that is sure to get a lot of use.

Air Fryer

If you have a foodie on your Christmas list that loves fried food but also likes to eat healthily, an Air Fryer can make a great gift. They (and their health) will be thanking you year around when they are enjoying crispy fried foods without all of the oil!

Bread Machine (Works with Gluten Free Bread!)

Know someone that loves bread? A bread machine is a fabulous gift. I got my first one more than 20 years ago, and I’ll never forget the smell of the house that holiday season.

This one is really exciting because it has a custom menu that will accommodate both gluten-free and organic baking ingredients. Just say no to $7 loafs of gluten-free bread.

A spiralizer is nothing short of magic in the kitchen! I use mine five or six days a week for everything from zucchini noodles for me, to crispy oven baked fries for the kids.

Coffee Press

There is something special about coffee made with a coffee press, and if you know someone who likes to slow down and savor their coffee, this makes an elegant and useful gift.

If you have someone on your list that loves tea as much as I do, they are going to fall in love for Kusmi Tea. It is a luxury tea based out of Paris that has 70 varieties of whole-leaf tea bags. Aren’t the tins just adorable? (And reusable!) They have single tins that make perfect stocking stuffers, as well as gift sets like this Green Teas Assortment.
