Gifts for Foodies

The holidays are here and it’s time to start shopping for that foodie you love. Let’s be honest, people who like to cook can be a bit particular when it comes to their kitchen. Finding the right gift for them can be intimidating.

We’ve picked out a range of gifts that help make your holiday shopping easier this year.

Pakt Coffee Kit


Coffee Kit

You’ll know right away if this is a good fit for someone in your life. The Pakt Coffee Kit has everything you need to make a great cup of pour-over coffee from any place you can plug it in. The best part? It condenses down to the size of a wine bottle. This is perfect for frequent travelers, van lifers, or anyone who wants to take a compact coffee maker on the go. We’ve been using it while we’re remodeling our house and it’s an absolute game-changer.

Vara Wines

Spanish Wines

You know better than to show up empty-handed. Treat the host to a bottle that will stand out among the others in their wine rack. Vara’s branding is absolutely beautiful with great wines to match. Online wine shopping has felt risky to us in the past, but Vara completely changed our minds. Their wines are approachable, despite carrying several varietals that may be new to you. Among the bottles we’ve tried, the Grenache and Tempranillo are our favorites!

Truffle Shuffle Salt and Honey

Truffle Shuffle

Truffle Salt & Truffle Honey

There are few ingredients in the food world that conjure up feelings of extravagance quite like truffles. Unfortunately, fresh ones can cost you well over $100/ounce (yes, really). Truffle Salt and Truffle Honey from Truffle Shuffle have been helping us incorporate that rich truffle flavor into our pasta, eggs, and just about every other savory dish we cook.

Cooks Who Feed


As we all learned during quarantine, baking is messy. An apron should be considered an essential kitchen tool, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be boring. Cooks Who Feed has a range of colorful aprons (Hannah has the Turmeric Spice color). These aprons are also a gift with a story – proceeds from each apron you buy donate 100 meals to those in need.

Laconiko White Balsamic Vinegar


Balsamic Vinegars

Foodies get far too excited over good vinegar, and with good reason. Vinegar intensifies existing flavors in a dish and can impart new flavors that can make your food stand out.  We’ve tried LACONIKO’s Platinum Dark Balsamic and their Lemon Cucumber White Balsamic. The Dark Balsamic has the thick, syrupy consistency and complex flavor that we look for in a high quality aged balsamic vinegar. We’ve found that our favorite uses of the White Balsamic are in salad dressings, or tossing it into a mix of fresh berries in the morning. 

Veggie Box

Better ingredients make better food, and these are truly exceptional ingredients. You can order the specific products you want or one of their boxes that contain a bit more variety. We were surprised to find edible flowers, fresh micro-herbs, and beautifully colorful root vegetables in our box.

Tropical Fruit box

Taste the Tropics

New foods are a great gift, not only is it delicious but it’s also a fun experience. Learn all about new tropical fruits, exotic root veggies, and expand your palate. Boxes can be custom-built or chosen from prepackaged options.
