Foodie Gift Guide

I am a total sucker for gift guides on the internet.  I obsessively look at every item in every gift guide I come across.  I hope I'm not alone in this because I'm doing my own gift guide now for you guys.  This gift guide is good for your favorite foodie or anyone that enjoys spending time eating or cooking!  Please keep in mind that lots of Etsy shops will remake items.  If you click an Etsy link that says an item is already sold, feel free to look at the seller's other items and you will likely find the same item you were looking for.   Enjoy these fun foodie gifts!

Anthropologie $28
What home cook doesn't want to whip up something delicious in this cute thing?

Etsy, $20 for 2
Good food deserves pretty things on the table too.

Amazon, $8.49
Any foodie gal will appreciate a romantic comedy involving chefs.  We rented this on Netflix and it's a fun movie - perfect for a stocking stuffer.

I have visions of filling my kitchen with cool vintage things, but so far I'm a little light on the collection.

Anthropologie, $24
Nothing will inspire you to roll out pie dough like a rolling pin this fun.

Etsy, $8
Perfect for cutting carrots, serving cheese, or photographing food for your blog.

Etsy, $18
Something this fun and festive would just brighten up the dinner table.

Anthropologie, $14.95
Pretty spoons for serving and stirring make the job all the more fun.

Amazon, $26.25
A book filled with Christmas cookie recipes and more - is there a more natural Christmas gift?

Etsy, $12.50
I fully admit that I'm a bit of a mess in the kitchen, so I need tons of towels around.

Amazon, $149.99
Some people may find this cheesy, but I am in love.

Braille Napkin Rings - Set of 6, custom made
Etsy, $72
You can get names or cute phrases - how cool and original is that?

The Art of Simple Food by Alice Waters
Amazon, $23.10
One of my favorite cookbooks that teaches you how to cook delicious and simple food.  Alice Waters is amazing.

Etsy, $14
"You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you."  Need I explain this one?

Chocolate Donut Soap - half dozen
Etsy, $8
Every sane person loves donuts, but unfortunately the real thing doesn't ship very well.  Enter: donut soap.

Etsy, $45
This necklace cracks me - nothing like a whimsical piece of jewelry.


  1. kathy--these are all so cute! i was actually meaning to ask you for your opinion on an xmas gift for myself. i know you, among others, are big fans of ina garten's cookbooks, and i was going to ask for one for xmas. i was wondering if there was one in particular you would recommend as the best of hers with which to start.

  2. Hi there,

    I just added your list to our Big Guide to Foodie Gift Guides. Check it out! If you like it, please share it with your social network (Foodbuzz, Facebook, Twitter, etc.)

    Aloha, Nate

  3. Laura - really any of Ina's cookbooks are great. I would probably most recommend her recent book - Back to Basics - because it would be useful for all occasions. Also, if I recall correctly, not all of her cookbooks have a picture for each recipe, but Back to Basics does. Enjoy!

  4. Nigella Lawson was one of my first boyhood crushes second only to Larisa Oleynik from "The Secret World of Alex Mack".

  5. LOVE the list! I am especially fond of the Darcy mug :) And the rolling pin! love love. I must get a gift list together for my bloggie...

  6. p.s. I don't actually like donuts. Do you hate me?

  7. thanks, kathy! it is being emailed to my parents shortly!

    and yes, anika, you must. if it helps--i like brightly colored hat/scarf/glove sets and i haven't seen one in eons. like since i machine washed and shrunk my bright pink ones last year. i like to be matchy matchy and all that.

  8. there was a good interview with nigella on npr where she talked about her christmas cookbook...the chocolate chili is so yum.

  9. Okay........so I have been trying to find the Anthropologie Scandanavian Rolling Pin ("Cutest Rolling Pin Ever") for months and months now, ever since I saw it in a magazine. The day I got my magazine in the mail (before it hits the stands) I called Anthropologie to order. Not a single Anthropologie store in the USA had one.....everyone said it was an item they only had 1 or 2 of, long before I ever called about it and sold the 1 or 2 they had. ANYBODY have any ideas on where I can find this item?

  10. I think the rolling pin is sold out. It was in stock when I posted this in December, but it must be long gone now. Perhaps try eBay?
