A Christmas gift guide with a list of the perfect gifts for food lovers, this Christmas gift guide has everything you need for the cook and/or food lover in your life. You may even find something you’d like for yourself!!
I know that shopping for everyone on your list can be incredibly overwhelming. There is just SO MUCH STUFF out there. I suffer from the same problem. Which is why I created this foodie gift guide for that cook or food lover in your life.
Christmas gift guides have been my savoir for a number of years. As a foodie and cook myself, I scoured the internet to finding the coolest and handiest gifts so you don’t have to.
Cooking Utensils and Gadgets
These utensils and gadgets are some of my favorite tools, and also some that I have been pining after. Some of the below links are affiliate links, which means I earn a small commission if you buy through these links.
I recently purchased this beauty and it has been absolutely awesome for cooking. This thermometer takes a temperature reading in 3 seconds, and is INCREDIBLY accurate. I have fallen in love with this for roasting meats, baking bread, and making candy. It is the best thermometer I have ever used!
I’m sure you’ve been seeing Instant Pot recipes all over the internet this year. I actually got mine for Christmas last year and it has been the most amazing addition to my kitchen. You can make so many different meals in it – I just love it! There are many different ones, but I have the 9-in-1 6 Quart version.
Sous Vide Cooker
I don’t own one of these…YET. I am dying to get one. I did a little research, and the most highly recommended Sous Vide cooker is the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker.
Cast Iron Skillet
Every cook needs a great cast iron skillet. Personally, I am a huge fan of Lodge cast iron products. Pre-seasoned, high quality, and much less expensive than some other brands, I use Lodge for all my cast iron needs.
KitchenAid Stand Mixer
What foodie gift guide is complete without a KitchenAid stand mixer. I’m going to be honest, I’ve used a KitchenAid mixer many times in my life, but don’t have one in my kitchen right now. Because I don’t do a ton of baking, I use a hand mixer. But the stand mixer is very highly rated and incredibly popular among bakers and cooks.
