30 delicious gifts for foodies
Everyone has a foodie friend in their life — and we all know that person can be a bit particular when it comes to their palate. Of course, a “foodie” can mean many things; from someone who’s always fiddling in the kitchen to the person always shouting at the contestants on Top Chef while their own stove stays cold.
Some seek out every five-star restaurant in town, while others are content to live vicariously through the dictated devourings of their favorite foodie personalities.
Whether you're gifting a chocolate lover, an oenophile, or a passionate gourmand this holiday season, there are gifts for foodies out there that are perfectly tailored to their tastes. The best part? No aimlessly wandering around candy shops or boutique wine stores: These treats can be ordered online and delivered directly to their doorstep.
From personalized subscription boxes to online classes for the aspiring chef, deeply personal memoirs to personalized kitchen supplies, we've cooked up the best gifts for foodies that are sure to satisfy and delight. We're not drooling ... you are!
1. FOR A TRULY HANDMADE MEAL
Imperia Pasta Maker Machine
Making pasta from a box? One of the easiest things in the world. Making pasta by hand? You'll feel like you just made your old country nonna proud (even if you don't have one).
For the food enthusiast who's tired of store-bought spaghetti or fettuccini, get them the Imperia Pasta Maker. There's nothing quite like handmade cosa da mangiare.
2. FOR THE CHEESE LOVER
Murray's Cheese Cheesemonger's Picks Cheese of the Month Club
A monthly shipment of three or four spectacular cheesemonger-picked artisanal cheeses, delivered right to their doorstep? We ain’t cheesin’!
The Cheesemonger's Picks Cheese of the Month Club from Murray's Cheese is one of the most delicious monthly food subscription boxes out there because it's curated to absolute cheesy perfection. A good cheese board will make anyone swoon.
3. FOR THE CUPCAKE ADDICT
Baked by Melissa Latest & Greatest Cupcakes (25-Pack)
We think that the sweetest way to show that you care is through cupcakes. This gift box includes 25 bite-sized cupcakes in 12 different tasty flavors, including Cookie Dough and Baked by Melissa's Tie-Dye.
4. A TASTE FOR TRAVEL
Flavors of the World Hot Sauce Set
This globe-trotting assemblage of sauces caught our eye for its wide ranging flavors and conveniently sized containers. Inspired by flavors from around the world, this thirty-sauce set offers regionally themed tastes like Hawaiian Lava Flow and Cuban Fuego — all in small, easy-to-carry bottles.
