Gift Ideas For The Foodie In Your Life*



*This is a collaborative post*

There’s a good chance that at least one person you know is a foodie - a person who is a self-proclaimed lover of food and always wants to try out new flavours and textures. Knowing exactly what to get these people can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. But with a helping hand from yours truly, it’s not so difficult. Take a look at some of these gift ideas for foodies. Bon appetit!

Copper Mugs

If you’ve ever been into a posh kitchen store, you’ll have noticed that they like to sell copper pots and pans to hang over your cooker. Although pots and pans can be pretty expensive, copper mugs are a lot cheaper. You can usually pick up a set of four for under $60, and they’ll serve as the perfect accessory to any delectable kitchen. They’re simple, fun and versatile.

Ceremonial Matcha Tea Set

For years, health professionals were touting the beneficial effects of green tea. Green tea did everything, from stopping you from aging to reversing disease. Then along came a bunch of foodies and wondered what would happen if they didn’t just steep their tea in water but ate the leaves too. Wouldn’t that confer even more benefits?

As a result, they started importing more and more match tea from the far east and began adding it to their smoothies. But this isn’t the way that matcha is supposed to be consumed. Instead, matcha is supposed to be consumed as tea, just like green tea. So why not give the matcha-loving foodie in your life a traditional matcha tea set? The tea set comes with a specialist bamboo whisk so that all the little tea particles can be evenly distributed throughout the water. Plus, it also comes with a measuring scoop and a double layered mixing bowl to make the perfect green brew.

An English Cheese Hamper

One of the reasons why cheese hampers are so exciting for foodies is that they never quite know what they’re going to get. One minute it could be Wensleydale, the next Godminster cheddar. Also, different cheeses work well with different accompaniments, like wine and chutney, and so foodies can endlessly experiment to find their favorite combinations. In short, an English cheese hamper is a voyage of discovery.

Assorted Chocolates For The Chocoholic

When it comes to chocolate, foodies can be very particular. They’re not interested in chomping down on any old chocolate: instead, they want chocolate with a bit of character. Fortunately, manufacturers are waking up to this fact and supplying the market with all sorts of artisan chocolates in many different flavors. These include things like almond, sea salt, caramel and rose.

Buy Them A Salt Library

If you thought that there was just one type of salt in the world, then you’re wrong. It turns out that there are many different types, with many different uses. Granted, the only real difference is the fact that the different salts are mixed with herbs and spices to give them a unique flavour. But it’s an exciting gift for people who like to make their own food nonetheless.
