33 Gift Ideas for Foodies
We all know some foodies! You know, that friend who spends countless hours in the kitchen creating and always has their finger on the pulse of every new restaurant opening? Heck, maybe YOU'RE the foodie and this list can serve as a wish list. Luckily, there's no shortage of interesting gift ideas for foodies.
If kitchen gadgets aren't your jam, we're a big fan of experience-based gift giving. From Chef's tasting to cooking classes and food tours to events, we're got you covered with our brand new experience gift guide.
Life-Hacking Food Gifts
Do you know the #1 obstacle people report for not achieving their goals (in any area of life)? I've asked this question to thousands of past students and clients both in the personal development space and the business world and they almost all report one thing. TIME! Or rather, not enough of it. So gifting someone some extra time can be the most valuable gift they receive this year. Check-out these options for saving your loved ones some time when it comes to food.
Chefs Plate sends all of the pre-portioned, fresh ingredients right to your doorstep with step-by-step directions to make restaurant-quality dishes. Since we are all trying harder to stay in, these meal kits are making it easier for Canadians to keep meals exciting, while avoiding the busy grocery stores and tedious meal prepping. Chefs Plate’s Holiday Meal Kit (available for order until Dec 3), also includes their first-ever dessert, a fudge brownie recipe.

Take-Out & Delivery
While we might not be spending as much time in restaurants anymore, that doesn't mean we can't enjoy restaurant food. Takeout has never looked so good! From brunch & burgers to fine dining and oysters – you can easily order takeout from your favorite restaurants.
If you live in the county and have space, perhaps a garden is a normal part of everyday life. But if you've got any city-dwelling foodies on your list we've got some gift ideas we think you'll love.
Cheese & Charcuterie Boards
Most people already have cheese boards & serving treys (but we included a couple we think are great here anyway). But, it's the little accessories that we, as hosts, don't always think of. Imagine having little tags for the cheeses you're serving, or stainless steel premium knives. How impressive, right?
First, a cook-book and/or iPad stand for the kitchen is a genius gift for ANYONE who spends a lot of time with recipes. Second, we've included today's top trending cookbooks along with some of my personal all-time favorites.
If you know what you're working with in terms of what they already have – you're way ahead of the game. For example, many foodies have the infamous kitchen aid mixer – but do they have the various attachments?
Trending Appliances for Foodies
These require a bit more budget but if you're looking for appliances there are some that are hot, hot, hot right now! We've also included a few timeless appliances that every foodie should have.
I hope this guide was helpful for you as you shop for the foodies in your life. We ADORE hearing from you so if you liked this, let us know. If you, yourself, would like to drop any hints around the holidays please feel free to share this post with the people in your life!
