Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies includes more than 46 items arranged by price. Choose unique, elegant, personalized gift items for your loved ones!
This week there will be no recipe (unless you are subscribed to my email list, then you’ll get one by email and it will rock your world, believe me!), but instead I decided to share with you some of my favorite kitchen things that also happen to be great gifts for those who are into cooking (or eating). And who isn’t, right? I arranged them by price, which might make it easy for you. I also included various offers and discounts to make sure you get the best offer!
Since all the malls are overcrowded long before Christmas and I’m heavily pregnant, this year I started to appreciate online shopping. Traditional gift shopping is exhausting these days and it takes so much time! Online shopping is not only more convenient, but also often cheaper, since online shops don’t need to rent expensive retail outlets and hire the staff. They work on a larger scale that helps them get profits even though they sell each product cheaper than the traditional shop. Besides, you don’t need to go anywhere, just sit at home in your cozy PJ’s with a cup of hot tea or coffee (or mulled wine?) and enjoy. I can only see benefits in online shopping, with the most important one being: YOU SAVE MONEY.
If you are subscribed to Amazon Prime, you’ll get your gifts shipped FOR FREE within 48 hours! For some goods and locations you can even get free same-day delivery. If you aren’t subscribed yet, they have a free 30-day trial (you can unsubscribe afterwards, otherwise it costs 8$ a month).
Last year I wrote a post about 15+ Homemade Christmas Food Gift Ideas, which I encourage you to check as well. I selected the best homemade Christmas food gift ideas for your loved ones: Cookies, condiments, jams, macarons, potpourri, pickles, snacks. Homemade gifts are great but if you have no time, I totally understand and I got you covered.
Below I share some of my favorite kitchen things that make for great holiday gifts.
Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies: 3o$
Flavor Bible ($22.49) and Vegetarian Flavor Bible ($26.32): These books are must have for people who like to cook! I own a Vegetarian Flavor Bible and I can say that I use it on a daily basis when creating recipes. It has thousands of ingredients and their flavor combinations arranged alphabetically. It couldn’t be more helpful and easy to use! What seasoning to use with a certain dish wouldn’t be a question any more! This book has all the answers I’ve even needed in the field of flavor pairings. Moreover, this book was an inspiration for me when I was writing my free E-book ‘How to Cook Without a Recipe’, where I explain principles that lay behind recipe creation. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, it’s your chance, since I’m giving it away for free. Go ahead and download!
What to Drink with What You Eat ($24.18): Another amazing book for foodies who like wine and beer. It’s based on expert advice from America’s best sommeliers and includes information on matching food and drink, such as wine, beer, spirits, coffee and tea. This book will turn the foodie in your family into a world-class sommelier, able to pair any cuisine with a compatible choice!

Cuisinart Coffee Grinder ($38.27): This gift would be perfect for everyone who loves coffee. Cuisinart is known for its quality, so this automatic coffee mill is not only elegant and stylish but also durable. It has a 18-position grind selector, from ultra fine to coarse. It’s the best coffee grinder you can get for the price!

KitchenAid Nonstick Skillet ($41.99): This skillet is my absolute favorite. Every homecook has to own a good quality skillet, and this one is the best choice. I admit that I used to buy cheap frying pans in Ikea, that are neither durable, nor really nonstick. It all changed since I purchased my first KitchenAid skillet. Now I want a 10-piece cookware set that includes 8″ Skillet; 10″ Skillet; 1.5-Quart Saucepan with Lid; 3.0-Quart Saucepan with Lid; 3.5-Quart Saute Pan with Lid; 8.0-Quart Stockpot with Lid. They are all oven- and dishwasher safe, as well as induction capable and nonstick. You can’t really expect more from cookware. This set is just perfect!
