Holiday Gift Guide: For the Foodie

It’s Thanksgiving Eve and we’ve got food on the mind. Before you head into your turkey coma, it’s time to get a head start on your holiday shopping and we’re here to help! We’ve scoured the stores, the internet, and the magazines to compile our favorite gifts for the foodie in your life. We also won’t be mad if you add some of these items to your wish list, we certainly have.

Foodie Stocking Stuffers: consider these tiny treats an amuse-bouche to the main event.

A fun way to get lost in Paris | Coasters for the k-9 obsessed | A key tag perfect for the hipster who ‘grams every meal | A delicious ornament | A fun way to get the party started

For the Health-Conscious Foodie: Bring focus and antioxidants to the comfort of your foodie friend’s home. The Meet your Matcha set comes with 30 servings of high quality tea sourced from Japan, a beautiful minimalist design, and step-by-step instructions. $70

For the Saucy Foodie: For the friend who always has hot sauce in their bag, make sure they are fully stocked, year round, with this small batch hot sauce subscription. A Fuego Box subscription includes four quarterly shipments of the best hot sauce you’ve never heard of. $120 

For the Foodie who has Everything: We all have that loved one who is terribly difficult to buy for, but we’re willing to bet they don’t have an olive tree. Not only will your purchase support a local family owned business, but the extra virgin olive oil produced from your tree will be delivered right to your doorstep! Now, that’s amore. $80

For the Sweet Foodie: This beautiful pie dish will make even the most dubious bakers out there (hi, me) want to churn out some serious desserts. With each slice, the blue pattern reveals itself, making it the only time you’ll be happy to see dessert disappear. $75

For the Fashionable Foodie: We teamed up with local D.C. Italian emporium, Via Umbria, to create a limited edition pair of Bitches Who Brunch sneakers. We employed the talented Ribigini family from Deruta, Italy – the team behind the beautiful Geribi ceramics sold at Via Umbria – to bestow their talents by way of a bespoke brunch sneaker that combines their traditional peacock feather motif with a playful brunch theme. Snag a pair of these slip on Vans for that friend that’s always running out the door to brunch.  And let’s be honest, a pair for yourself. $135

For the Fitness Foodie: Hydration? So hot right now. This gorgeous Swell marble water bottle is the perfect gift for the Foodie who goes from the gym to happy hour, as it can carry water or a full bottle of wine. A functional gift that you’d rarely buy for yourself. $45

For the Charitable Foodie: ‘Tis the season to give back and Williams-Sonoma won our hearts with their St. Jude collaboration on adorable spatula’s painted by young patients. They would make a sweet hostess gift this holiday season, too. $20 

For the Feminist Foodie: We all need some inspiration in the kitchen now and again. This year we’re loving Cherry Bombe, created by badass women in the kitchen, for badass women in the kitchen, according to GOOP. If nothing else, we’d love to flip through the gorgeous images on our couch with a glass of wine. $35

For the Foodie Who Loves Tea: I’m a coffee fanatic, but even I am excited to try these Tumeric and Chai teas, in bottles beautiful enough to display. Perfect for the friend who is coffee-adverse and a sucker for a beautiful aesthetic. $25

For the Homebody Foodie: Villeroy and Boch is know for their simple, pragmatic, and sleek designs and they’ve done it again with this 2-in-1 soup bowl, which I really could have used this weekend for our simple soup and salad Sunday night dinner. These bowls are sure to elevate any comfort meal. $40 (set of 2)

For the Colorful Foodie: Neutrals are cool, but it can be fun to serve with punchy kitchen ware. For example, these adorable cactus stacking cups or this MOMA rainbow pitcher are great conversation starters for the foodie who loves a good fete. $55 (set of 6 cups), $25 (rainbow pitcher)

For the Cheeky Foodie: If you’re going to be on dish duty, you might as well have a laugh while you’re at it. Gift these humorous tea towels to the friend that may be incompetent in the kitchen and often finds themselves washing dishes. $12

For the Artsy Foodie: Shake up a foodie’s dinner table with these iconic Andy Warhol Campbell’s Soup salt and pepper shakers from the MOMA. Prepare for serious gifting praise every time someone asks for the salt. $125

For the Foodie who Loves to Host: This paella gift set is the gift that keeps on giving. With all the ingredients and a paella pan to boot, it’s the perfect date night in or an easy start to hosting a dinner at home. $40

Extra Sugar! Each year I share a new way to make your gift wrapping unique (see previous ideas here and here). This year, we’ll be topping off our gifts with beautiful, yet affordable wine stoppers, like these and these.
