5 Fun Foodie Gifts

December 9, 2013 | By | Comments (0)

Food lovers come in lots of shapes and sizes, but to my mind there are really only two: Super serious and slightly silly. I probably fall in the latter category. Don’t get me wrong–I am all business about my kitchen utensils and gear. But, sometimes, I like more carefree things, too. If you’re searching for fun food gifts for the foodie in your life, I’ve pulled together five of my favorite.

1. Kale Yeah! I bought the Totes Ma Goats bag for a friend a few weeks ago, but I fell for this funny one, too. Made of 100% cotton, this tote is a perfect companion for your food friend’s trips to the farmers’ market because it can be easily washed. Bonus: It’s made right here in America. Like it so much you want to wear it? You’re in luck–they have an Oh Kale Yeah shirt, too. ($18, westelm.com)

2. Tree Food Did your food-loving friend try her hand at growing her own food this year? Help her remember her first hands-in-dirt adventure with an adorable fruit or vegetable ornament. ($8-15, cooksgarden.com) Photo: The Cook’s Garden

crate and barrel corkers

3. Crazy Corks The best way to describe this gift: Mr. Potatohead parts for people who love wine. Crate & Barrel’s Corkers are animal limbs and faces for four animals: Deer, monkey, bear, or buffalo. When you pop a bottle, break out the corker parts, and begin what’s sure to be a hilarious time. ($6.95 each, crateandbarrel.com) Photo: Crate & Barrel

Zoku home slush and shake maker

4. Shake, Rattle, and Drink! I’m a big fan of Zoku and their colorful creations. The single pop freezers are always a big hit in the summer–they make popsicles in less than 10 minutes. However, I’ve always been more of a slushy girl myself. That’s why Zoku’s Slush & Shake Maker is on my list for Santa this year! It stores in the freezer so you can make fruit-juice slushes, single-serve shakes, or iced coffee drinks in just seven minutes. Available in five colors. ($20, zokuhome.com) Photo: Zoku Home

5. Bear-y Beautiful This artist lives right here in Cooking Light‘s hometown, Birmingham, Alabama. I first saw Jayne Morgan‘s art at a festival a few months back, and since then, I’ve been pining for one of her paintings. I’m particularly drawn to her honey bear series, but really, she can make a bottle of dish soap looks stunning–and has! (jaynemorgan.com)
