If you've got a loved one in your life who loves to eat and loves to cook, you're in luck. They are so easy to shop for! And the best part is they will probably share their kitchen creations with you. 🙂

Here is a list of great gift ideas for the person who loves and appreciates good food, loves to spend time in the kitchen creating delicious meals, and loves to try new things. These are for the person who already has a favorite chef's knife, owns an Instant Pot, and is comfortable with some experimentation in the kitchen.

These are all gifts that I have personally used or I am eyeing closely this holiday season (hint hint!) and I would be thrilled to receive.

Truffle Oils Gift Set

Truffles are one of the most sought-out ingredients in the foodie world. The fragrant mushroom adds a rich umami flavor to so many recipes. And while you probably can't afford to buy a whole truffle mushroom for your favorite foodie (though really, I would die of happiness if someone gave me that!), you can definitely give them this gorgeous set of truffle-infused olive oils.

This trio contains Black Truffle Oil, White Truffle Oil, and English Truffle Oil. Drizzle these oils over pasta, potatoes, and rice dishes and take your food to the next level. A few drops will add so much flavor to every-day recipes. They will thank you.

Sous vide is getting more popular all the time. This immersion sous vide cooker is the perfect gift for someone who loves to try new cooking techniques and prides themselves on making perfect steak and seafood.  

If you're going to gift a sous vide immersion cooker, make sure you also get sous vide bags with a vaccuum sealer so that they can get started right away!

Culinary Torch

Inexpensive and so fun!! This little gadget is what adds that addicting crunchy topping to Creme Brulee, or turns your meringue a beautiful golden brown. You can also use it to add some color to roasted, grilled meats, or sous vide meats.

A Culinary Torch is a great gift for the person who has pretty much every food gadget - chances are they do not own a culinary torch yet. They will love using it and you'll love trying their fancy desserts. 🙂

If you're going to get the culinary torch, make sure you get some butane gas so that they can use the torch immediately.

Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking

Have you seen the stunning 4-part series on Netflix?? If not, you should check it out. It is beautifully made, with lots artistic shots that will make you drool over every bit of food. Samin Nosrat will make you want to drop everything and travel all over the world to seek out these simple but special ingredients.

This book would make a great gift for someone who, like Samin, is obsessed with delicious food. It is a great coffee-table book and conversation starter. Please note, this is not a cookbook but a book about how to cook better food. So it's perfect for the person who always wants to learn more about everything.

Pizza Stone


This is a fun piece of bakeware to own. If the foodie in your life likes making things like pizza from scratch, then they definitely need a pizza stone. It's inexpensive for you, and it will step up their pizza game. Using the pizza stone will yield an amazingly crisp crust without any sogginess. This Ceramic Pizza Stone makes an inexpensive but fun and thoughtful gift. And the handles on the side are a must. I wish all baking dishes came with such handy handles!

Granite Bibimbap Bowls

bibimbap bowls

These beautiful Bibimbap Bowls would make a great gift for someone who likes to cook different food from different cuisines. These gorgeous granite bowls are used to make and serve Korean fried rice. The rice gets all crispy from the hot stone bowl. It makes all the difference between 'meh' bibimbap and authentic bibimbap. These bowls are also great for keeping food hot as you eat.

Korean food has been getting a lot more attention lately - more people are finally discovering how amazingly delicious it is. These gorgeous bowls would make a great gift because they are the kind of thing that is so fun to receive when you would probably not splurge on them for yourself. Hopefully they'll invite you over for some bibimbap!

If you want to make it a themed gift, you can also get them some Gochujang Sauce to pour on their delicious bibimbap.

Morel Mushrooms

Morel mushrooms are a delicacy in the mushroom world. Michelin-starred chefs use morels to add that wonderful touch of umami to their dishes and to add a depth of flavor to their creations. Morel mushrooms can be added to soups, sauces, pasta, and risottos. It's a fun ingredient to work with and something that not everyone will think to buy for themselves.

Blendtec Blender

OK, so how much do you love your foodie? A lot? Then splurge on a Blendtec Blender for them if they don't already own one. This thing is amazing and I use it every day, several times a day. From smoothies (even with kale!) and pureed soups, to almond butter, tahini, fresh chickpea flour, amazingly smooth hummus, and sauces.

Oh, and it makes a great frozen margarita. 😉

Blendtec is the company behind the "will it blend?" campaign - have you seen those videos on youtube of them blending all kinds of household objects in this blender? This industrial-strength blender can handle a LOT of wear and tear and has an 8 year warranty. So you know how cheap blenders break every 1-2 years? This blender will put an end to the madness.

Also, it's self-cleaning.

Blendtecs are pricey, but so worth it. And they often go on sale, so keep an eye on the price around the holidays.
