Are you stumped when it comes to getting holiday gifts for your favorite foodies? Here are a few ideas that will make your gift stand out from the typical cookbook crowd.
Jessie Steel Designer Apron
There is no reason you can’t make amazingly good food and look amazing also. Give one of these stylish aprons to your gourmet cook and she and her food will be the hit of the party. They come with matching kitchen towels and pot holders too!
Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice Gift Set
Spice up your tea-drinking friend’s life with Hot Cinnamon Spice tea. The smell of this blend is so wonderful and the taste is robust and “cinnamony”. I discovered this tea on my honeymoon while staying at a cozy, romantic inn called The Clifton Inn in Virginia. Drinking a cup of this tea instantly brings me back to the warmth of the inn’s library and the special time I had there with my husband.
A cooking class is a great gift for someone who loves spending time in the kitchen. How about a class in sushi making from Sur La Table? What about a 3 hour course in basic knife skills at the Degustibus Cooking School in NYC? Or how about hiring a personal chef to provide some personal instruction in your friend’s home tailored to their specific interests?
Cooking Utensil Earrings
For the gourmet who has ever kitchen gadget imaginable, these cooking utensil earrings are the perfect gift. How cute are these?
Wine Tasting Party or Tour
If your area has some good local wineries, schedule a tour and tasting for a fun outing with your friend or family member. No wineries available? With the help of your local wine shop or the internet, select about 4-5 wines and host a wine party for a small group of close friends.
