19 Gift Ideas for Your “Foodie” Friend
If you’re shopping for a “foodie”—you know, someone who binged the entirety of Chef’s Table in a week, Instagrams every meal, and spends more time in Whole Foods than in their own apartment—you’ve come to the right place. From the best cast-iron dutch oven to a gourmet spice set, we rounded up 19 holiday gifts for your favorite food lover.
Kate Spade Recipe Notebook
Keep track of your recipes (and pass them down to the next generation!) with this seven-section recipe notebook. Tip: to make the gift ultra-personal, include the secret recipe to your best dish inside.
Atlas Marcato Pasta Machine
If a box of Barilla won’t cut it anymore, gift this authentic Italian pasta machine. Your aspiring chef will be whipping up batches of homemade spaghetti and fettuccine in no time.
Chinese Dumpling Cooking Class in NYC
Mauviel M’heritage 250c Skillet
While on the pricier side, this chef-approved copper skillet is worth the investment for its impeccable quality, durability, and handmade French craftsmanship.
You Say Tomato Tea Towel
You say tomato, we say...cherry or brandywine? This kitchen towel by illustrator Claudia Pearson is perfect for any food lover.
Sheet Pan Magic Cookbook
For someone who’s still getting the hang of cooking, go for a no-fuss cookbook, like Sheet Pan Magic, which delivers 160 pages of delicious single-sheet-pan recipes alongside beautiful imagery.
FREDS Gourmet Cheddar Cheese and Caramel Popcorn
If you don’t know your gift recipient on a super-personal level, you can’t go wrong with something that’s guaranteed to taste great. FREDS’ famous gourmet popcorn falls in that category.
PL8 Professional Mandoline
For many, the hardest part about cooking is the prep work—chopping up piles of veggies by hand is no quick feat. A quality mandoline will totally change that, with its slicing deck (that adjusts between four thicknesses) for uniform cuts every time.
Gourmet Oil Dipping Spice Kit
From France’s herbs de Provence to Morocco’s za’atar, this kit will take you around the world to experience the flavors of five different cuisines through 15 spice blends, complete with recipe and bread pairing suggestions.
Cathy’s Concepts Monogram Apron
Every head chef needs a signature apron, and a monogram makes it all the more special.
Staub Cast Iron Dutch Oven
Dutch ovens are known for their exceptional slow-cooking abilities due to the even heating properties of the thick cast iron. This one by Staub is renowned for its high-quality construction, made to last a lifetime, and comes in fun bright colors.
Monette Monogram Cheese Board
The one thing every Instagram foodie has in common? Stylish serveware. This marble-and-shell monogram cheese board will rack up the likes.
Click & Grow Smart Garden
Packaged herbs from the grocery store? You can do better than that, even if you don’t have the time, space, or energy to take up a gardening side-hustle. With this self-watering indoor smart garden, you’ll have the freshest food possible, all at just the click of a button.
Jack's Wife Freda: Cooking from New York's West Village
New York City foodies know and love Jack’s Wife Freda for its American-Mediterranean comfort food—and perhaps the trendiest brunch in Manhattan. Now, they can make it themselves with this 256-page cookbook from chef Julia Jaksic.
Harry & David Gourmet Fruit Spreads
Choose between 10 premium marmalades, fruit curds, and traditional conserves to put together the ultimate toast-topping kit for a fruit-lovin’ friend.
Bernardaud Kintsugi-Sarkis Dinnerware Collection
Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: A Collection of 20 Prints
“Say When” Cheese Grater
Add some playfulness into the kitchen with this cheeky “Say When”-engraved grater. (We’ll always take more cheese, please.)
A food tour in your city
The best way to get to know a new city—or even the place you’ve lived for years—is with a food tour of the area’s top spots. This type of experience makes an especially thoughtful gift for a significant other, as an activity you can do together. As they say, the way to the heart is through the stomach, after all.
