Foodie friends can be particularly difficult to buy presents for. Especially if you are not a foodie yourself! It can be easy to get stuck in the habit of buying them sweet treats all the time, like a fancy box of chocolates. However, there are many great gifts out there waiting for you to buy them. Need a bit of inspiration? Here are 5 fab gifts all foodies will love.
1. A Professional Knife Set
Knives are very important in the kitchen. There are so many, each with their own job. Some are best for meat while others are perfect for peeling vegetables. So treat your foodie friend to their very own professional knife set. They will all come with extremely sharp blades, as you would expect to find in a restaurant kitchen. There are a lot of cool knife sets to choose from, some of which even come with a stylish knife block in which to keep them.
2. Cutting-Edge Appliances
New appliances and tools for the kitchen are always being released onto the market. It can be quite difficult to keep up with all the latest trends sometimes! Air fryers are particularly popular right now, and there are many different models in the shops. Or you can get them a something traditional, like a barbeque.
3. Recipe Books
You can’t go wrong if you buy your friend a recipe book! Foodies love to continually increase their repertoire of recipes, so a new book will give them lots of new ideas and inspiration. Almost every celebrity chef will have a number of recipe books out. If you know which chef your friend really admires, you can buy one of their cookery books. If you aren’t too sure, simply buy a book that specializes in your friend’s favorite cuisine.
4. Herb And Spice Rack
Your friend will no doubt already have a load of herbs and spices for their cooking, but do they have a rack for them? There are lots of stylish racks out there to choose from. Go for a wooden one if your friend has a traditionally decorated kitchen. If they have a modern décor, pick a rack that is made from metal. There are many designs to pick from too. A straight rack with a couple of shelves looks very traditional, or you could pick something a bit more quirky, like a spiral shape.
5. Reserve The Chef’s Table
If you don’t have much time to shop for a gift, simply book them a table at your local fine-dining restaurant. You can even go one step further and book the chef’s table. This is the best one in the house. Usually, you will also get a view of the kitchen, so your friend will be able to see all the cooks in action.
There are loads of things you could buy your foodie friend. Get out there and shop around for more ideas!
