Fun and Practical Gifts for Foodies

Gorgeous reversible aprons for the home chef

ffoodie gifts madmade apronfoodie gifts madmade apron

When you entertain, stay stylish with MadMade Design reversible aprons! Tunic-style, these apron prints are so fun, it’ll look like part of your outfit! They currently have 14 print combos, like feathers, paisleys, and florals, and each apron is reversible, so you get two styles in one! (or, it’s perfect if you stain one side during cooking, you can just flip and be ready to greet guests!).

These aprons come in sizes, so you get get a good fit, and I’m thankful for the wide-should straps, b/c I always get a neck-ache from the halter-top styles. A full-width pocket holds your phone, glasses, or recipes.

Get one for yourself, or as a gift for a foodie friend or hostess! Bonus: MadMade Design aprons are made in the USA, and they donate a portion of every apron sold to Ceres Community Project – a San Francisco Bay Area non-profit that provides organic meals to low-income people who have life-threatening illnesses.

Check out MadMade Design to see all the apron styles!

Gifts for Foodies: Tools & Accessories

Mixing bowls and Cutting Boards for Easier Food Prep

foodie gifts core flare bowlfoodie gifts chop block

Give the gift of a healthier kitchen and home with beautiful and purposeful bamboo products from Core Bamboo. Made with 100% organically grown bamboo and  food safe water based adhesives, finished with top grade natural oils – that’s something I’ll eat off of!

Core Bamboo’s flare bowl is perfect for serving salads and breads. Thick and sturdy bamboo, the weight and richness of this piece is a statement even without food in it!

I want to replace all my cutting boards with Core Bamboo after having the Pro Chef Lotus Chop Block on my counter this past month. This heavy duty board gives room to prep big family meals.

Core Bamboo carries a variety of cutting boards, bowls, trays, utensils and home decor! Find Core Bamboo on Amazon!

Novelty bakeware and cake kits

Collage, Cake Boss shape pans and fondant

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 gift items. Mold cakes into stars, flowers, and more with heavy-duty carbon steel. The nonstick surface and rolled edges make cakes release perfectly with crisp edges.

The Covered Cookie Pan is perfect to bake-and-take cookies for parties; it preserves freshness (and keeps hungry hands at bay).

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!

Reusable food storage for sustainable cooking

foodie gifts bees wrap

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 (they have a pleasant slightly sweet scent!).

Beeswax and oil have antibacterial properties to help keep food fresh. Hold the Bee’s Wrap in your hands to soften the material. Then wrap the material around a block of cheese or over a bowl. The wrap will stiffen up again in the fridge.

Clean with cool water and mild soap, air dry, and you’re ready to reuse! It’s old-fashioned, but it really feels so modern! What a unique gift for a foodie, right?

See all the Bee’s Wrap unique gifts for foodies or find Bee’s Wrap on Amazon!

Quality ingredients for better baking

High-quality flavorings and extracts

foodie gifts vanilla

I love to bake, so I know from experience quality ingredients make the best baked goods and treats. The foodies in your life will appreciate gifts of high-quality ingredients.

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 find Nielsen-Massey gift items on Amazon.com (affiliate link)

Fine baking mixes and baking tools

Whether you’re baking for yourself or others, King Arthur Flour has a fine selection of flours, mixes, ingredients, baking tools, even holiday mixes and gift sets! I love receiving baking sets to try out! I like how many gift sets come with an item to keep like a baking pan, bag, whisk, etc. King Arthur Flour has dozens of gift sets in all price ranges.

Last year, I featured their Gingerbread House kit. My son loved decorating (and eating) his house!! If you’re stumped with a baking problem – maybe a flopped dessert or need to substitute an ingredient, visit the year-round Baking Hotline – you can chat, email, or call for baking support!

The best foodie related gift I ever received was my mixer that my husband gave me last year. Ever since we were married I have always used a hand mixer but dreamed of owning a stand up one. He gave me one in pink to honor my mom who had breast cancer. I use it all the time!
