Foodie Gift Guide


Ah, the holidays… Somehow they always sneak up on us and leave us wondering how did that happen, and also what on earth should I get my loved ones? I’m not sure how it happened, but I can help you with the second one! My 2017 Holiday Foodie Gift Guide is here, and it will help you narrow down some options for gifts that will spark joy in the life of your most loved foodie.

This guide is based on some of my most FAVORITE items in the kitchen as well as some that I am looking to add to it. Most are chosen based off of the fact that I research to make sure I am cooking in safe cookware that will not off-gas, and be as non-toxic as possible. Hence all of the stainless steel, cast iron, and glass. For the real health conscious foodies that care what they cook in and not just what they eat – this list is for you.

2017 Holiday Foodie Gift Guide

1. Stainless Steel Cookware Set

Stainless Steel Cookware Set

This is my most favorite cookware set. It is stainless steel without any coatings. It does not stick and cleans very easily. By far a great find for the price.

2. Instant Pot

Instant Pot

If you’re into real food, if you’re a busy parent, a person with an actual life – this device is for YOU. A device that can get you bone broth with bones that crumble in your fingers in under TWO hours, is a miracle in my book. This gets used at least 5 days out of 7 in our house.

3. Deep Clean Brush Set

Deep Clean Brush Set

Because we all know that we need to clean, and some things just can’t be cleaned well enough with a sponge.

4. Parchment Baking Cups

Parchment Paper Baking Cups

For those bakers in your life – nothing stinks more than a muffin that sticks to the liner. And nothing feels better than one that slides right out. Win!

5. Instant Pot Lid

Instant Pot Lid

Because device in #2 is life-changing, and you can even use it to saute & avoid the splatter with this lid!

6. Coffee Grinder

Coffee Grinder

Rarely have I met a good foodie that doesn’t run on strong coffee. And nothing tastes better than the freshly ground brew. Plus, ground coffee oxidizes fast, so grinding it will provide maximum freshness in your cup.

7. Le Creuset Dutch Oven 

Le Creuset Dutch Oven

As exciting as an Instant Pot is, I have to say that roasting something on the stove for hours on end is also quite a thrill when you have some time. The smells that fill the home, the flavors that infuse! Plus the great versatility of being able to go from stovetop to oven.

7b. Lodge Cast Iron Dutch Oven

Lodge Cast Iron Dutch Oven

Another option that might seem a bit more affordable yet still have the same function.

8. Cuisinart Food Processor

Cuisinart Food Processor

I just have three words – Homemade Nut Butter. That is all. Oh and the millions of other things I use it for. Such a great tool to shred, slice, and dice. Gosh, what did we do before the invention of the food processor?

9. Double Wall Coffee Cups

Double Wall Coffee Cups

If your foodie keeps up with the newest trends, this will fit the bill. One of the hot new trends are these double wall coffee cups that will make for some beautiful photo ops & a great vessel for that fresh ground coffee! (see #6)

10. Cast Iron Waffle Maker

Cast Iron Waffle Maker

Even healthy eaters want waffles. But without that nasty Teflon nonstick coating that most waffle makers come with.

11. Immersion Blender

Immersion Blender

The quickest way to mix a small amount of sauce, whip up whipped cream & make homemade mayonnaise!

12. Silicone Spatulas 

Silicone Spatula Set

I love that they come in one piece vs two that will eventually end up falling off & that they can handle the heat – up to 600F.

13. Glass Meal Prep Tupperware

Glass Meal Prep Containers

I am your girl when it comes to eating out of mason jars, or whatever else as long as it eliminates the need for me to pack in plastic. But sometimes you just want to be a bit fancier and have an actual compartmentalized container. That’s where these come in handy. Great for packing lunches & planning your meals ahead.

14. Stainless Steel Baking Sheets

Stainless Steel Baking Sheets

These are my favorite, no harmful aluminum off-gassing into my food or the air I breathe & delicious cooked meals! Plus they clean well & roast veggies to perfection.

15. Vitamix Blender 


The holy grail of blenders. I honestly don’t know what I would do without my Vitamix. From morning until night, matcha lattes, bulletproof coffees, smoothies, soups, sauces, nut milk – you name it – and it most likely can do it.

16. Apron 


Because I don’t know anyone who likes grease stains on their shirts.

Hope that this list was a good resource in finding a gift for that special mom, sister, friend or neighbor who enjoys real food, good times spent in the kitchen and quality tools in helping them craft their masterpiece meals!
