Holiday Gift Guide for the Foodie - A collection of 15 gifts a foodie will enjoy! From the basics to the items on every wishlist.
Foodies can be a little hard to shop for. We always seem to have everything, but that isn't always the case! Below are 15 gifts any foodie would love. Some may already have the items, and some may not.
Spiralizer - I have this one small, but I have this tri-blade in my wishlist this year. Comes with three different blades for different types of strands. It makes it easier to spiral all kinds of vegetables from sweet potatoes, apples, zucchini, you name it.
Cast Iron Enameled Dutch Oven - I recently purchased the red one and I have to say I love it. I have used it every single day for soups, one-pot meals, chicken stock, you name it. Perfect if you aren't ready to fully invest in a Le Creuset dutch oven. A fraction of the price and just as great, in my opinion.
Wooden Stirring Utensils - I recommend purchasing a well-known brand because these little guys will be getting a lot of uses! I use my wooden stirring utensils for everything and have almost ditched my plastic ones.
KitchenAid Mixer - Did you know stand mixers can be used for just about anything! Great for shredding chicken breasts, whipping heavy cream, and more. It's a great investment, especially if you love to bake.
Microplane Zester/Grater - A must-have for any foodie! Great for zesting lemons and limes. You can also grate hard cheeses, onions, ginger, and more! A steal in my book and it doesn't take up hardly any room.
Hand Blender - Comes in many different colors! Perfect for purring homemade soups, especially my cauliflower roasted red pepper soup. No more pouring hot soup into a regular blender and hoping you do not burn yourself!
Cutting Board - I believe everyone should invest in a cutting board with juice grooves. I have a couple without the grooves, and it can be a little messy, especially in a small kitchen with hardly any counter space.
12-Inch Cast Iron Skillet - I didn't grow up with a skillet, my mom always used non-stick pans. After getting married, we invested in a couple of different cast iron skillets, and it's all I use. Slowly my collection has grown. It's something you can own forever and pass it down.
Slow Cooker - Need I say more? It's the best thing ever.
Food Processor - Great for making pie dough, cutting vegetables, and more!
Blender - This is the same blender I have been eyeing for a couple of months. It's the blender of all blenders, besides the Vitamix. Crushes ice, whole fruits, and vegetables in seconds. Awesome, right?
Magnetic Measuring Spoons - I don't know if it's me, but I always seem to loose my measuring spoons. I have no idea where they go! These are perfect because they are magnetic - woohoo!
Popcorn Air Popper - Air-popped popcorn is the best thing ever. It's fewer calories because you do not have to cook it in oil, just add a little butter for flavor. You can have up to 6 quarts of popcorn in about 5 minutes!
Garlic Press - Makes using fresh garlic easy and quick. No need to peel or mince garlic ever again.
