Looking for a good gift idea? Our unique gifts for foodies will delight your friends and family. Browse our list of gift ideas to find the perfect fit for the foodie in your life.
For The Home Chef:
A great cookbook is a wonderful gift that can be treasured for years to come. If you’re looking for a timeless classic, Julia Child’s Joy Of Cooking is a tried-and-true standard in any home chef’s kitchen. For a masterclass in cooking techniques, try Martha Stewart’s Cooking School cookbook. The hefty tome provides countless recipes and is arranged by skill level, delighting beginners and experts alike. A more modern take on cooking basics is Samin Nostrat’s highly praised Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking—a cookbook so popular, it got its own Netflix show! Alice Waters, chef and founder of California cuisine landmark Chez Panisse, describes this New York Times Bestseller as a “beautiful, approachable book” that “not only teaches you how to cook, but captures how it should feel to cook: full of exploration, spontaneity and joy.” These unique gifts for foodies will put a smile on their face.
For The Wine Connoisseur:
Your wine-loving friend will be thrilled to receive a Winc subscription. After a brief questionnaire, Winc hand-selects different wines to try based on your palate, and ships you a box of wine based on your specifications. Members of this wine club praise its cost-effective prices and customized selections. With their frequently updated wine selections and flexible membership, you can’t go wrong with a Winc wine box subscription.
For The Plant Eater:
Is a vegan on your list of unique gifts for foodies? Why not treat them to a meal delivery service that takes the guesswork out of veganism! Purple Carrot allows users to customize their meal plans, and offers selections for other dietary restrictions as well. For the vegan home cook, you can spice up their life with this beautiful box of vegan spices from Thrive Market. Certified gluten-free, kosher, and organic, you can feel good about this delicious offering that will add flavor and fun to any vegan dish.
For The Beer Drinker:
Beer is best served cold, and what better way to keep it chilled than with a YETI cooler! The YETI Hopper M-30 is described by New York Magazine as “great for the traveling beer geek,” and will keep your brews ice-cold. If your beer fan is a caffeine addict too, they’ll love the buzz of Hopped Up Coffee. The hoppy coffee blend makes a unique gift for foodies. Country Living claims that they’ll have the “best of both worlds at their fingertips—er, lips.”
For When They’re Too Tired To Cook:
Beer lovers, vegans, wine drinkers, and lovers of great food will all enjoy this gift: gift cards to a Bottleneck Management restaurant!
