50+ Gift Ideas for Foodies
Let’s start with the smaller items:
These are the things that would be perfect as stocking stuffers or grouped together in a gift basket.
I broke my green plastic rocker, so I highly recommend buying the stainless steel version! I love this thing!!
I was sent this garlic press set to review last year, and I love it. It’s easy to squeeze and easy to clean.
This brush makes cleaning out those little garlic press holes super easy!
These shears are only used in my kitchen for herbs, dough, etc. The blades come apart, so they are easy to clean.
I give these as gifts all the time, everyone loves them.
WÜSTHOF KNIFE SET – Includes 4″ Utility Knife and 8″ Cook’s Knife
I finally broke down and bought a high-quality chef’s knife and I absolutely love the set, and it has an awesome utility knife too!
Most people don’t even think about sharpening their knives.
These knives are crazy sharp and perfect for small jobs.
This can opener is simple to use AND it cuts the top of the lid off of the can, so there’s no sharp edge or rim to deal with. My son was fascinated by it on Thanksgiving, so he’s getting one for Christmas.
This trivet doesn’t take up a lot of space in the drawer, and expands to whatever size you need. The new ones are black and gray, the green must have been discontinued.
I could not survive without this tool, and it comes in lots of different colors!! Perfectly zests lemons and Parmesan cheese like in my lemon asparagus pasta.
I like this whisk because it is narrower and gets into the corners of the pan better to make perfectly smooth beef gravy.
The gold standard for liquid measuring.
Narrow enough to fit into most spice jars.
The BEST measuring cups that I have ever owned!
These are the greatest invention EVER!! I use them to hang my dry measuring cups, dish drying rack, and strainers on the inside of my cabinet doors.
Joseph Joseph Nest Colanders Set (green or gray)
The handle hangs over the center bar in the sink for hands free draining…and it now comes with a smaller colander that fits perfectly inside the large one.
Cooking requires math, this magnet makes life easier.
Perfect for those of us in the U.S. that do not speak metric.
I always use these when cutting raw meat!
I was fortunate enough to have won this board in a baking contest a few years ago, and I absolutely love it! It won’t crack like the bamboo/wood boards do. It’s almost 11 years old now and still going strong!
Skip the tissue paper and wrap your gifts in some cute kitchen towels! Designs and colors are constantly changing.
For the Baker/Dessert Lover
Heavy duty so they don’t warp or bend.
These mats are awesome! They keep sticky foods like chocolate covered popcorn and baklava honey-glazed walnuts from sticking to the sheet pan, and keeps you turkey pot pie pie from sliding around while moving it back and forth from the oven.
I love the shape of bundt cakes, that’s why all of my cocktail cakes are made in bundt pans.
A unique shape to give to a unique friend. 😉
This springform pan is awesome and does not leak!
Perfect gift for your Crème brûlée loving friends. I do not have this exact torch, I grabbed mine out of a tool box the garage. Shhh, my ex doesn’t know. 😉
This is the updated version of my favorite ice cream maker.
The best ice cream scoop ever!
The perfect way to store your homemade tiramisu ice cream.
For Pizza Lovers
If you are new to pizza making, or just looking for additional information, check out my How to Make Homemade Pizza post!
I have been using bread machines for over 23 years to make pizza dough, hamburger buns, and dough for sweet rolls. Yes, it does also bake awesome bread.
I love, love, love my pizza stones! It appears that it no longer comes with the rack, but I have never used mine anyway so it’s not a big loss.
The easiest way to transport pizza, just don’t ever cut on it! If you slice your pizza on the wooden peel it creates grooves that will cause your dough to stick and not slide off.
For Wine Lovers
The easiest way to open a bottle of wine…every time!
So simple, and they don’t break if you drop them.
If you’re anything like me, you always end up with leftover champagne or sparkling wine. Save it and make chicken au champagne.
For Stir Fry Lovers
They also work great for tossing stuffing together and pulling the turkey off the grill.
Updated to add the #1 requested gift for the last two years!!
I have three of these and I absolutely love them!! Main in one, side in the other, and dessert in the third one. 😉
If you have a large family, you may want to go with the 8 Qt!
If you need recipes for your new toy, check out the Instant Pot Recipes page. There are over 60 recipes to choose from!
Best Christmas gift ever!
You probably recognize this pan, I use it almost daily.
So sturdy and strong! I have two of them attached to wood boards holding all of my pans on the wall.
Love, love, love this pan! It was a Christmas present to myself a few years ago. 🙂
Second best gift ever!
I tried to put together a collection of gift ideas that would be perfect for college students or newlyweds, all the way up to gifts for people that are looking to expand their cooking skills.
You would be surprised how many of my friends love some of the simplest items in my kitchen, but can’t justify buying a cool “gadget”. That to me is the perfect gift; something they love, that they won’t buy for themselves!!
What’s on your wish list?
