Top 10 List: Best Gifts for Foodies

UPDATED:  Originally created for Mother’s Day, these gifts are great for any male or female foodie in your life!  (Or yourself…)…enjoy and let me know what else I should add!

With Mother’s Day rapidly approaching, I wanted to come up with a recommended list of Foodie Mother’s Day gift ideas that are all available on Amazon Prime for immediate shipping! I tried to think outside the normal Mother’s Day box with things I have purchased for myself and loved, or received great recommendations for.

Prepara Herb Savor

I really like the following two items because they really extend the life of your herbs!  It says it also works with asparagus but I have not tried that yet…very easy to clean!

Growbottle – Basil

This is a special gift for anyone that is saving an empty bottle of wine from a special occasion.  Sometimes the bottle itself is too cute to recycle.  This is an awesome way to upcycle it and made it into a perfect herb garden.

Gourmet Korean Barbeque Insert

You don’t have to be Korean to appreciate this grill enhancer!  Bulgogi is thinly sliced marinated beef, charred on the grill.  This device sits on top of the grill to perfectly cook the meet and catch drippings from the marinade!

Lodge Logic Cast-iron Skillet

Everyone needs a good cast-iron skillet (fried chicken anyone?!) and this one comes very highly recommended!  For under $20 this is a steal.

My Life in France by Julia Child

The next two foodie gift recommendations are books.  Read this one over my honeymoon and devoured it before landing in the Dominican Republic!  An enjoyable read by Julia Child about the events leading up to whom she was meant to be!

Ad Hoc at Home

Arguably the best chef in America, Thomas Keller’s “Ad Hoc at Home” is a beautiful cookbook accessible to the masses.  He goes into great, patient details about how to prepare the best fried chicken, enhancing dishes with gingerly tended ingredients.  Bright, delicious pictures, recipes that are easy to follow (also some are involved) that take homemade family style dishes to the next level!

Deluxe Rolling Utility Cart

Finally, for the foodie that always goes to the farmers market each week, help them carry this produce around by getting this fantastic utility cart.  I use mine every week and it can be spray painted any desired fun color!  Instead of struggling under the weight of many fabulous produce purchases, let them easily maneuver during their weekly shopping adventures.

One thought on “Top 10 List: Best Gifts for Foodies

  1. Cool gift ideas, Heather! I got my husband the set of herb pods for Christmas and he’s still never used them. Maybe it’s time for me to figure out how to use herbs. 😉

    Happy Mother’s Day!
