Five Holiday Gifts for Your Favorite Foodie
Is your Secret Santa also a not-so-secret foodie? If your holiday shopping list looks like a casting call for the next season of “Top Chef,” you might be struggling with ideas for how to fill their stocking. Don’t break your budget on fancy mixers, expensive knives or other over-the-top gadgets for their dream kitchen. Check out these five ideas for foodie-approved gifts that are perfect to put under the tree this holiday season:
- Sweet Spoon Rests
You don’t have to be a chef to appreciate a good spoon rest. When you’re stirring up savory soups and thick pots of chili, you need a spot to place your ladle that won’t make your counter dirty. You can find themed ceramic spoon rests for your favorite foodie who also happens to be a cat lady, or try investing in a couple of these handy Trudeau pot clips for less than $10 each.
- Kitschy Cups and Spoons
A kitchen connoisseur can never have too many measuring cups or spoons. Kitschy styles are all the rage right now, and stores are stocking up on adorable, display-worthy gadgets that are also functional. These Russian nesting dolls double as six dry measuring cups, and these Woodland Critters measuring spoons are just too cute to keep in a drawer.
- Piece of Cake
If your foodie friend is a baker, they might need a little something to help put their culinary confections on display — or transport their next delicious cake to your house. You can find cake stands just about anywhere these days and they come in plenty of colors and styles ranging from bright glass to white stoneware. If you’d like to give the gift of dessert portability, consider this kitschy metal carrier or a practical plastic cupcake carrier.
- Mix It Up
Whether your favorite chef is cooking up something sweet or savory, chances are they’ll need a mixing bowl to make their favorite recipe. Give them an upgrade with these stainless steel bowls that have silicone on the bottom to keep them from skidding on the counter, or this glass batter bowl complete with a handle, spout and lid.
- Gift Cards Galore
Gift cards can seem impersonal, but they don’t have to be if you cater to your Secret Santa’s tastes. Buy a Bricco gift card and give it to someone you love along with a recommendation for your favorite dinner dish. Foodies will appreciate the unique Mediterranean fare, progressive wine list and intimate dining experience long after the tinsel and tree are put away for the season.
