Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies 2016

Hello and Happy Holidays, friends! I realize it's been a minute since I've posted anything on here, but today I'm sharing my top twelve (because ten is not enough) gift ideas for foodies this holiday season! 

  1. Food ornaments.  Fact:  Any self-respecting foodie must have at least 35 food-inspired ornaments on his/her tree or in his/her house. Here's a few of my favs: donuts, macarons, Brussels sprout, pomegranate
  2. Food/Garden calendar.  This hand-made letter-pressed 2017 calendar by Brown Parcel Press is a super special gift for any food lover!  I gifted myself this calendar (oops) and plan to cut off the dates and frame the printed artwork at the end of the year!
  3. Apron.  No foodie can ever have too many aprons, especially those from West Elm or Anthropologie!
  4. Simply Taylor Cookbook.  As you may know, one of my best friends, Taylor Riggs (Owner/Author of Simply Taylor blog), is releasing her first cookbook early next year!  Her recipes are quick, easy, and seriously delicious!  Pre-order your copy now and receive it by January 3rd, 2017! 
  5. Icelandic chocolate. I have no words.  This is by-far my favorite chocolate right now (also available at Whole Foods Market)!
  6. Gold flatware.  Need I say more?  While beautiful, buying multiple sets can be expensive!  Gift just one set for a food-photography-obsessed foodie!  Hello, epic food pics! 
  7. Measuring cups.  A true foodie can never have enough measuring cups (because who wants to clean a cup four times while baking one thing?!). These cups from West Elm are both pretty and practical! 
  8. Mead.  Instead of gifting the usual bottle of wine, give mead (honey wine made from honey and water via fermentation with yeast)!  I personally recommend Brothers Drake’s Apple Pie mead! Cheers!
  9. Glass storage containers.  Foodies have a thing for glass storage because it holds up and doesn’t stain!  
  10. Cookbook stand.  If you have an old-school, cookbook-loving foodie on your hands, give the gift of handsfree cookbook reading!  New-age foodies could prop their tablets up on this stand, too. 
  11. Anything white marble.  From rolling pins, to cheese boards, to cell phone cases, to water bottles, white marble is a foodie favorite!
  12. Spiralizer.  If you happen know a foodie without a spiralizer, be a hero and pick them up one of these bad boys (assuming they have a stand mixer)!  Having the ability to turn veggies into noodles is life-changing.

Happy Holidays, fellow foodies!
