This post about gift ideas for foodies has been brought to you by the brands featured. All opinions are my own.
Core Bamboo – boards and bowls!
Give the gift of a healthier kitchen and home with the beautiful and purposeful bamboo products from Core Bamboo. Their products are made with 100% organically grown bamboo, and made with food safe water based adhesives, finished with top grade natural oils. Now that’s something I’ll eat off of!
We’ve been enjoying bowlfuls of fresh salads in our Core Bamboo flare bowl. Made from thick and sturdy bamboo, the weight and richness of this piece is a statement even without food in it!
And food prep? I’m tempted to replace all my cutting boards with Core Bamboo after having the Pro Chef Lotus Chop Block on my counter this past month. This large and heavy duty board gives me room to prep all sorts of veggies for big family meals.
Core Bamboo carries a variety of cutting boards, bowls, trays, utensils and home decor!
Available at Core Bamboo.
Nielsen-Massey – vanillas and extracts
I love to bake. And I know from experience that the best ingredients make the best baked goods and treats. Giving gourmet ingredients to the foodies in your life will be appreciated, I think!
Nielsen-Massey Vanillas have been in my baking cupboard for years and lend their sweet flavors to all my cookies and goodies! Now they also carry coffee and chocolate extracts, real vanilla beans (delightful for flavoring and adding that speckled vanilla look!).
I’ve also been using their Vanilla Sugar in my coffee. MMmm…
Nielsen-Massey Vanillas are available at all fine food and kitchen retailers, and on Amazon.com (affiliate link)
Cake Boss Baking – novelty bakeware and cake kits
If you know a baking genius, I bet they’d love an update to their bakeware! Cake Boss Baking (you know, the Italian guy who makes the awesome cakes on that show? Yes, he has his own bakeware line!) has hundreds of lovely giftable items to pick from.
How about a set of novelty bakeware – for molding cakes into stars, flowers, and more. Heavy duty carbon steel with a nonstick surface and rolled edges. The cakes I made released perfectly with crisp edges to their shapes.
Try the Covered Cookie Pan – perfect to bake-and-take your cookies to the next party. Preserve freshness (and keep those hungry hands at bay).
Or a Cake Kit to decorate festive holiday cakes or birthday treats. The Winter Cake Kit comes with five stainless steel cutters, stainless steel frosting/decorating tips and piping bags. You’ll feel like a pro decorator! Give the kit OR make a cake and give the cake!
Find a range of gifts at reasonable prices at Cake Boss Baking.
Bees Wrap – reusable food storage
A fresh way to go natural in your kitchen. Use Bee’s Wrap beeswax wraps for food storage and remove another plastic item from your life! These wraps are made with organic cotton muslin, beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin (and they have a pleasant slightly sweet scent!).
The beeswax and oil have antibacterial properties that help keep food fresh. By holding the Bee’s Wrap in your hands, you soften the material (which is a little stiff upon opening). Then you can wrap the material around a block of cheese or over a bowl. The wrap will stiffen up again in the fridge.
Use the wraps over and over – just clean with cool water and mild soap, air dry, and you’re ready to reuse!
