10 Great Gifts for Foodies Who Love to Cook

10 Great Gifts for Foodies Who Love to Cook

If you are done with your holiday shopping…SHHHHH! You are not my people. I still love you but know that I haven’t even started. If you haven’t either or if you are trying to buy something for that not so easy to buy for foodie, this post is for you. Check out these great gifts for foodies!

Like many of you, I am trying to shop much more locally this year but I have friends and family who live far away. Buying from a website and getting it shipped to them is much easier than shipping it myself.

Also, if you are actually shopping FOR ME, yes I want all of these things or a gift certificate to a restaurant (Cilantro & Chive!). Basically, gifts for foodies are gifts for ME!

Great Gifts for Foodies Who Love to Cook

Air fryers are the latest must-have small appliance. The name is a bit of a misnomer because you can cook many different things besides those that are generally fried. Head over to Pinterest and have a look. It is CRAZY how much you can make. Never fear, though, the Instant Pot is still very, very popular and make a great Christmas gift as well. Want something that is a mix of both? Check out the Ninja Foodi!

Sous Vide

Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker – Sous Vide is a huge innovation in restaurants and home kitchens alike. It allows you to make meats and vegetables with precision and it is Wifi compatible so you can control everything from your phone. Wondering how it works? Well, you add the Precision Cooker to any pot, add water, drop in desired food in a sealed bag or glass jar. Start cooking with the touch of a button. The sous vide cooker’s timer and precise temperature control allow you to step away and relax while your food cooks perfectly. Also, check out these add-on sous vide accessories.

Out of my whole knife block, I grab my Santoku knife again and again. I’m not sure why I love it so much but I do. It is the perfect prep/chopping knife!

Weber igrill

Weber iGrill – Do you have a tough time getting your steak JUST how you like it? Are you honing your smoked ribs recipe? The Weber iGrill is the perfect gift! We use ours all the time and it helps to make sure our brisket, ribs, steaks and more come off the grill right when they need to.

A Le Creuset Dutch Oven has been on my wish list for years. A bit out of your budget this year? Grab a cheap and cheerful (and just as pretty) one instead.

Being successful in the kitchen is often tied directly to knowing the temperature of something NOW. An instant-read thermometer is a must in any kitchen and makes a great foodie stocking stuffer.

My husband went down the rabbit hole of cheese making on YouTube. I love the idea of making our own cheese. This cheese making kit makes 40 batches! All you have to add is milk.

My favourite kitchen appliance is my cobalt blue Kitchen Aid mixer. No dough is too stiff for this bad boy. It is the perfect gift for any serious baker.

We bought a mushroom farm similar to this one a few years ago and Evan still talks about it. He absolutely loved growing our own mushrooms. In fact, I’m adding this to his Christmas pile right now.

Love cooking with fresh herbs? Grow your own fresh herbs and vegetables even in the winter with a countertop garden. I know a few people who have these and love them. Make sure to order additional grow pods because once you start growing stuff you won’t want to stop.

An air fryer is KEY! I use it way more than any other tool in my kitchen including an Instant Pot or Crock Pot!

Wow! I love so many of the items on your list! The colorful salt and pepper shakers and the popcorn seasonings would be 2 of my favorites!
