Happy December, friends! The Christmas season is upon us, and I couldn’t be more excited! There’s just something about twinkle lights, Christmas trees, and yummy smells wafting from the kitchen that give me alllll the holiday feels. In my humble opinion, it really IS the most wonderful time of the year. 🙂
One of the special things of the season is being able to give gifts to those we love, just as Jesus gave Himself to us all those years ago. But I am a firm believer that gifting shouldn’t be stressful, overwhelming, or break the bank. With that in mind, I have compiled a list of 12 Christmas gift ideas that would be perfect for the foodies in your life! I have included both fun and practical items that cover a wide range of prices to fit multiple budgets and interests. This foodie gift guide should have something for almost anyone! Let’s jump in, shall we?

Instant Pot – This is hands down my absolute favorite kitchen appliance of all time. It enables you to cook almost anything (beans, pasta, soups, veggies, grains, etc) in less time, with less mess. This would be a perfect gift for the busy mom or college student in your life! Ok… It would honestly be the perfect gift for anyone. 😉
Waffle Maker – I love this Cuisinart waffle maker so much that I have two! It makes perfect, crispy waffles every time. Note, this makes the classic thin waffles (my favorite!), not belgium waffles
Immersion Blender – This handy little tool is perfect for blending up soup, gravy, salsa, juice, pudding, salad dressing… and more. 😉 Make your food smooth without getting your big blender dirty (A huge plus, in my book!).
Vegetable Peeler – Everyone needs a good vegetable peeler in their kitchen. This one is comfortable to hold, and has no trouble peeling everything from cucumbers to butternut squash.
Garlic Press – If you’re tired of mincing garlic, and are equally tired of trying to clean out pesky garlic presses, this one is for you. I’ve used it for years, and it is still my favorite. Easy to press, easy to clean. Win-win.
Batter Spoons – These handy little spoons are perfectly sized for mini, regular, and jumbo muffins. It makes filling muffin and cupcake pans a breeze! Plus, the edges are just like a rubber spatula to scrape the last bit of batter out of the bowl. Grab a set of these for the baker on your list!
Wooden Spoons – My favorite kitchen utensils! These are made out of organic bamboo, and are very high quality. Not only does the set come with every type of utensil you could want, they even have their own cute storage container.
Glass Canister – With lids that have an air-tight seal, these are the perfect for storing bulk or dry goods in (cookie jar, anyone?). They come in a variety of sizes, and are a pretty addition to any counter. I love storing my flour in these for easy-access!
Erica Nedley’s Brighten up Breakfast – Over 100 plant-based recipes filled with ingredients to promote peak mental performance. Includes beautiful photographs, nutritional values for each recipe, the specific health benefits of ingredients listed, as well as detailed information covering the scientific importance of breakfast. Many of these recipes can be used at any meal of the day.
Sarah Frain and Stephanie Howard’s Give Them Something Better – Easy, delicious, plant-based takes on well-loved recipes. Beautiful pictures, easy to follow instructions, and recipes using ingredients you will already have in your kitchen. This is my favorite plant-based cookbook!
Stephanie and Anneliese Howard’s Kidlicious – A great gift for the sous-chefs on your list! This plant-based cookbook made specifically for kids has easy to follow instructions and fun, healthy recipes that the whole family will enjoy.
