Think about your friend who posts restaurant reviews on her blog or your brother who’s a wiz in the kitchen. What would make them smile? Read on for a few ideas and use these thoughtful gifts for your favorite foodies to brainstorm the perfect present.
Buy a beautiful wooden board that they’ll want to use again and again. Load it up with a decadent selection of artisanal cheeses, fancy crackers, and cured meats (if they eat meat). If the two of you plan to eat from it right away, add a bunch of fresh grapes and an olive dish.
Many people keep a stash of disposable wooden chopsticks, left over from Chinese takeout meals, in their silverware drawer. Banish them from your loved one’s kitchen with a set of one-of-a-kind chopsticks. Hand-carved or enameled chopsticks will make their meal extra special.
If the food lover in your life eats meat, surprise them with a variety they won’t find at the grocery store! Squab and quail are small game birds that taste sweeter than chicken, and a good Wagyu steak will melt in their mouth.
Knife Block Set
Every home chef needs a full set of knives for every occasion. Buy a high-quality, fully stocked wooden knife block and make sure it includes a sharpener. Sharp, precise knives are an absolute must in the kitchen. Your loved one will think of you every time their cheese knife cuts through gouda like soft butter.
Next time you’re at your local farmer’s market, look for the honey stand. Many beekeepers set up shop at the farmer’s market to sell many varieties of local honey. Or if you find yourself in a spot famous for certain foods and beverages, pick some up for your foodie friend to enjoy. Driving through Wisconsin? Stop and grab some cheese curds. Visiting family in Texas? Bring home a bottle of artisanal barbecue sauce.
Show the foodies in your life how much you cherish them by feeding them and filling their kitchen! Indulge your loved ones and pick up a few thoughtful gifts for your favorite foodies.
