Wondering how to delight the foodie in your life this holiday season? Finding the perfect gifts for food enthusiasts isn’t difficult, especially with the vast assortment of gift options in the food world, you just need to know where to look. Here are the top ways to make your foodie happy this holiday season.
Finding the perfect gifts for food enthusiasts isn’t difficult. With a little intuition, you can easily find just what your foodie needs.
Get a Gift Card
If the foodie in your life has a passion for a specific brand of cooking gadgets or a local restaurant where they live, get them a gift card to match that interest. Gift cards allow recipients to buy the items they want or need while showing that you’ve listened and have taken an interest in their passions.
Give Cooking Gadgets
The perfect gift for a foodie needn’t be expensive. Often, inexpensive yet much needed cooking gadgets are the best received. Tune in to any annoyances the food enthusiast voices about cooking and find a kitchen gadget that will help alleviate that frustration. Classic gadgets are also always wise choices for gifts.
Find the Perfect Pairing
Finding perfectly paired food and drink is the ultimate goal of many foodies. Delight the food enthusiast in your life with a bottle of wine, artisan cheese, charcuterie meats and crackers that pair perfectly. If you aren’t trained in the art of food pairings, associates at a local specialty food store will likely be more than willing to help.
Has your foodie friend been wanting to try the fare at the newest or most expensive local restaurant? Make reservations! Often the best gift is one that involves a night out rather than a night of cooking at home. Impress your date by calling ahead to get suggestions on the best menu items and wine or beer to pair with the selections.
Give Books or Magazines
Give the gift that keeps on giving: A magazine subscription or a cookbook. Many quality food and gardening magazines are on the market these days, including several indie magazines. Research the best options online and find a publication or cookbook that matches the interests of the food enthusiast.
Buy a CSA Share
Does the foodie in your life have a passion for fresh, locally grown produce? If so, a CSA share may be the perfect gift. A CSA, or community supported agriculture, is the term used to describe local farmers who grow fruits and vegetables and allow the public to purchase shares, which get them a weekly amount of fresh produce through each growing season. A CSA share may also bring a side benefit of being able to visit or help out on the farm where the produce is grown.
Pleasing the foodies in your life this holiday season isn’t difficult, you just need to know what they like and find the gifts to match those interests. Whether your foodie friend has a passion for locally grown produce or the latest kitchen gadget, gifts are waiting to brighten their holiday.
And you can always send someone a happy meal like this, that will make them drool!
