Holiday Gift Guide 2016: For the Foodie

‘Tis the season for entertaining, gifting, and indulging! We’ve curated a list of memorable, unique, and cheeky gifts for every type of foodie in your life. So, raise a glass to all the foodies who keep you full and entertained throughout the year!


Clockwise: Pour-over glass coffee maker | ‘Chups | Villeroy & Boch pasta plates | Williams-Sonoma hot chocolate | McConnell’s Pint of the Month Club | Fizzics Beer System | Mouth subscription box | Mast Brothers chocolate

For the gluten-loving foodie: Give the gift that keeps on giving, with a gift card to a baking class at Knead and Know in Leesburg, VA. Spend the day in an adorable town house learning how to make bagels, croissants, or a perfectly fresh baguette in an intimate class setting. Leave with a full stomach and the ingredients and dough to continue baking in the comfort of your own home!


For the at-home mixologist: No bar cart is complete without festive barware. Grab this Two of a Kind Kate Spade jigger for the friend who knows how to whip up a cocktail—or the one that wishes they could!

For the fashionable foodie: Whisk her away with this adorable, delicate necklace, as a subtle but fashionable reminder of her prowess as a chef.

For the messy foodie: These ergonomically designed Villeroy & Boch pasta plates are as sophisticated as they are practical. Designed with specials nooks to politely twirl your pasta and serving bowls with spoon rests, so your meal ends up in your mouth, not on your cute blouse.

For the treat yo’self foodie: McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams launched a Pint of The Month Club just in time for the holidays with hand-picked freshly packed from-scratch pints sent from their dairy farm straight to your door. Save your foodie friends a freezing trip to the ice cream aisle with this gift.

For your wine and cheese foodie: For your turophile friend, make sure her tree is cheesy too with this adorable cheese wheel ornament.

For the foodie that loves to host: If you’re a foodie, chances are you’re on the hook to host this holiday season. Give your foodie friend a reprieve after a long night, with this Winter Morning Box from Mouth, a specialty food box company that curates small batch, homemade and indie food treats. They also have gluten-free, paleo, and vegan boxes!

For the DIY foodie: You know the friend that is constantly finding the time to whip up goodies from scratch? This at-home hot sauce kit will be a spicy addition to their repertoire!

For the saucy foodie: Ketchup is great, but fruit based sauce is better. For the foodie that’s constantly reaching for the sauce, up their game with these adorable, fruit-based ‘Chups. Read our interview with ‘Chups founder, Kori here.

For the craft beer lover:  Fizzics draft beer system will take any canned or bottled beer and make it taste like it was poured fresh from the tap at your favorite watering hole.  By mixing science with alcohol, the Fizzics system gives anyone the ability to enjoy their beer the way it was brewed to be served, perfect for hosting or just hanging out and watching the game.

For the homebody foodie: This classic hot chocolate and adorable red pot will give any homebody a good excuse to pack it in on a cold winter night.

For the cheeky foodie: Snag these cheeky tea towels for the messy, but light-hearted chef. The “Watch me whip” towel would make cleaning up any mess a fun chore. Hot tip: use a towel as a fun gift wrap for a foodie!

For the anti-Starbucks foodie: This carafe will look beautiful on a kitchen counter and eliminate a trip to the coffee shop. Plus, you can guarantee your name will be spelled correctly by your barista.

Extra Sugar! Each year I share a new way to make your gift wrapping unique (read last year’s idea here). This year I spotted the cutest mini chocolate bars from Mast Brothers, so I’ll be topping off my gifts this year with a sweet touch!
