Ben and I consider ourselves to be foodies – or lovers of all things food both making and consuming. So what do you get for someone who loves food? Here’s my pick of gifts for foodies – and all of those people who love to make, experiment with, and eat food.
Williams-Sonoma Goldtouch Bakeware Set ($79.96) – I received this set as a gift a few years ago and it’s the thing I use the most in my kitchen. Even if your foodies doesn’t like to bake the set can be used for so much more… In fact, just last night I used the rack and cookie sheet to grill shrimp skewers in the oven.
Cut Resistant Gloves ($14.95) – The moment I saw these I knew they needed to be on this list. I am notorious for cutting my fingers on every microplane, slicer, and knife.
iPad Kitchen Stand ($39.96) – Our counter tops are always a mess when cooking, from splatters and spills – and keeping the iPad clean of messes is super important. My mom has one of these in her kitchen and it’s perfect for cooking and scrolling your iPad without a mess.
Spiralizer ($34.17) – I have never seen a time when a spiralizer has been more popular, there are even cookbooks dedicated to just cooking with spiralized veggies. These are going to be a staple in every home very soon.
Ina Garten Make It Ahead Cookbook ($21.00) – Who doesn’t love the barefoot contessa?! This cookbook was #1 on the Amazon best seller cookbooks and is brand new as of only a month ago. While you’re at it, add these What Would Ina Do? ($22) tea towels for a perfect gift set.
Le Creuset Stoneware 4-Piece Set ($99.95) – To have Le Creuset items in your kitchen is a dream as they are top of the line stoneware. This deal for a four piece set is amazing!
All-Clad d5 Stainless Steel Sauce Pan ($99.95) – There is just something so special when it comes to cooking in one of these sauce pans. I don’t know why but things seem smoother, and look prettier, and taste better too. I feel like a pro when cooking in these sauce pans.
Serving Plank ($23.30) – What I love about wooden serving planks is that you can use one side for serving dishes, and the other side as a cutting board, that way you don’t get chop marks all over the clean wood.
Danielle Walker Against All Grain Cookbook ($20.97) – As gluten free, grain free, and paleo diets become more popular, and health concerns continue to rise I see this cookbook being a staple in every kitchen for healthy cooking, or whipping up meals for guests with food sensitivities.
I am looking forward to one day adding that to my collection of paleo cookbooks which includes Nom Nom Paleo Cookbook and The Paleo Kitchen.
Williams-Sonoma Caramel Hot Chocolate ($21.95) – If you have never tried Caramel Hot Chocolate get yourself a can of this mix right now! I am day dreaming about the sweet and salty treat I drank in the New England winters with my cousin and her family. I would gift this hot chocolate with a set of 6 clear glass mugs ($29.11) because hot chocolate is even more delicious when you can see it!
iPad Screen Shield ($6.97 – $11.96) – I have an iPad screen cover for the kitchen and it could not be more helpful! If I am following along a recipe on the ipad I don’t need to wash my hands before swiping down the screen, it picks up on all dirty finger movements, and when I am done cooking I just pop it off and wipe it down so it’s ready for the next use.
