5 Gifts for Foodies
Foodies are notoriously hard to shop for, and the thought process in choosing a gift may go something like this: Do they already have a microplane grater? Do they prefer Himalayan or Hawaiian sea salt? Instead of racking your brain, use our handy foodie gift guide with five great ideas for all types of food lovers.
Yankee Candle large jar candle, Napa Valley Harvest(.99; yankeecandle.com) and Ruffino Prosecco (.99;ruffino1887.com)
Shopping for a wine enthusiast? Instead of buying them another wine gadget, try purchasing one of these aromatic candles. The Napa Valley Harvest scent is a mix of grape, citrus, and plus scents that will evoke memories of that perfect glass of Pinot. Part of Yankee Candle’s wine collection, you can also choose delicious Nappa Valley Sun, Vineyard, or Grapevine and Oak, each providing 110 to 150 hours of true fragrance enjoyment. Pair it with a bottle of refreshing, versatile Ruffino Prosecco for the perfect gift for the wine lover on your list.
Plates with Purpose (.95; uncommongoods.com)
For the foodie that also has an altruistic side, get him or her one of these pastel plates. Made by a Pennsylvania artist, these recycled glass serving platters create beautiful presentations for all of your delicious meals, while reflecting the mission of various Pennsylvania nonprofits. With the sale of each platter, the organization donates to support local community organizations.
Lucini Premium Select Collection: A Tuscan Collection of Premium & Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oils (.99;lucini.com)
The perfect gift for anyone who loves to cook, this beautifully packaged gift set contains five, 3.4-ounce bottles of extra virgin olive oils: Premium Select Extra Virgin Olive Oil and four infused oils in Delicate Lemon, Tuscan Basil, Robust Garlic, and Fiery Chili.
The Italian cuisine aficionado (or foodie) on your list will appreciate each of these oils, made from 100% handpicked, single-estate Tuscan olives and a blend of essential oils derived from all-natural fruit and herbs. Even health-conscious cooks will appreciate them—olive oil is full of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats (MUFAs), which lower “bad” LDL cholesterol and raise “good” HDL cholesterol.
Harry and David Northwest Gift Basket Deluxe (.95;harryanddavid.com)
Harry and David are known for their gorgeous gift baskets, and this one won’t disappoint. For the cook that has everything, get them this eye-catching gift basket, full of Harry and David’s signature Royal Riviera® Pears, apples, nuts, pepper and onion relish, cheese and more! They’ll be able to serve these fresh treats to guests (or enjoy them by themselves) without slaving over the stove. Willing to splurge? Look into their Fruit of the Month clubs, which deliver seasonal fresh fruit to your doorstep every month.
Panasonic SD-RD25 Bread Maker (9.95;shop.panasonic.com)
We know what you’re thinking—the foodie on your list doesn’t need another bread maker. However, this deluxe edition goes way beyond bread making—the four different baking modes allow you to make everything from oatmeal and frittatas to mac and cheese or cookie batter. With a raisin and nut dispenser, you can add these ingredients at the beginning as well as throughout the baking process.
