Plus, with 20+ hand-selected gifts at a variety of different price points, there is something for everyone, from stocking stuffers to more elaborate gifts!
If you’ve been to my blog before, then it should come as no surprise that the Foodie gift guide is my favorite one to put together, every year. After all, I spend almost all day every day thinking about food, making food, or eating food. It’s one of the perks of my job!
So, needless to say, compiling all of my favorite food products from 2022 always proves to be my hardest task. Throughout the year, I get to try so many different products that I love, but when it comes to my gift guides, I want to make sure that I’m giving you the best of the best. And these products are truly the best of the best!
From delicious treats to life changing kitchen gadgets, this gift guide is jam-packed with gifts that everyone in your life will absolutely love!
01. – LOVE TO EAT cookbook
You didn’t think I would make a gift guide and NOT include my book, did you?! My debut cookbook, LOVE TO EAT, is full of 75+ brand new, healthy recipes designed to help you connect back to your body and eat intuitively. It is my pride and joy, contains some of my favorite recipes I’ve ever created (like an updated version of my Life Changing Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies) and makes for the perfect holiday gift!
02. – Beast Blender
This small, mighty, and beautiful blender has been a staple gadget in my kitchen this year, and I absolutely love it. It has replaced my beloved “Magic Bullet” for my daily, single-serving smoothie needs, and is also perfect for making small batches of sauces, dips, and spreads.
03. – Air Fryer
Another staple gadget in my kitchen? My air fryer. Even if you think you don’t need one, I’m here to tell you that you do. Air fryers make preparing veggies, meat, or even your favorite frozen Trader Joe’s meal (hey, I don’t judge!) If the foodie in your life doesn’t have an air fryer, then this is the gift that will keep on giving. Trust me.
Material Kitchen has become my go-to for cookware and prep-ware these days, and I am absolutely loving their cutting boards. Not only are they aesthetically beautiful, but they are made from kitchen scraps, so they are sustainably-made as well!
And why not give someone the ultimate gift, of mixing bowls with their cutting boards? Material Kitchen’s Mixing Bowls have also become staples in my kitchen, and I use them for almost all of my recipes, these days!
06. – MadeIn Bakeware Set
When it comes to bakeware that will last a lifetime, MadeIn is the way to go. Their French porcelain baking dishes are built to stand the test of time, and are naturally nonstick as well. If you have a baker in your life who is constantly buying new pans, then treating them to a set like this is the best way to go!
These aesthetically pleasing spice racks have taken over TikTok by storm, and for a good reason: they make your kitchen look so much cuter! For the friend who is always struggling to find their spices, or for the friend who appreciates an aesthetically-curated kitchen, this makes the perfect gift!
08. – Fullstar Chopper
Now, I am fully aware that this may not be the most exciting gift on this list. HOWEVER, in my opinion, it is the gift that keeps on giving. This Fullstar Chopper has changed the game for me this year. Say goodbye to hours spent chopping and preparing veggies – this chopper makes it easy to get all of your veggies chopped in seconds!
A nice cutting board will last you a lifetime, and a beautiful, wood cutting board is a staple in any kitchen, in my opinion. I have two of these Sonder Wood Cutting Boards in my kitchen, and they still look brand new, even after years of daily use.
This truffle hot sauce has quite the reputation, and for a good reason. It is SO GOOD! Over the past few years, Truff has received quite a bit of hype, but don’t let that stop you from trying it; it’s the perfect combination of a little spicy and lots of deep, truffle-y flavor; you may be so obsessed, that you’ll want to put it on everything! Plus, this set also comes with their signature truffle oil, which is perfect on almost everything.
Dry Creek Wines is a vineyard local to me, and makes some of the most delicious wine, in my opinion. Their wine club membership makes the perfect gift for the wine lovers in your life. Members will not only get access to exclusive wine events and discounts on bottles, but they’ll get bottles sent to them monthly. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!
What better way to say “I love you” than with a package full of artisanal almond croissants? These croissants are buttery, flaky, and absolutely delicious. They come frozen, and are perfect to reheat whenever the craving strikes. Is there anything better than having a delicious, French pastry on hand, at any moment?
13. – Jacobsen Salt Co. Salts
Fancy, flaky salts are a culinary fiend’s dream come true, and these salts from Jacobsen Salt Co. are some of my favorites. They are a west coast-based company, and all of their salts are the perfect way to instantly elevate any meal. This sampler is the perfect way to give a taste of all of their classic varieties!
14. – Brightland Olive Oil Set
When it comes to olive oil, California olive oil reigns king. And in my opinion, Brightland is some of the best California olive oil that money can buy. Not only do their bottles look absolutely stunning sitting on your countertop, but they are everything that you could want out of olive oil: smooth, buttery, and delicious enough to drink on their own.
15. – Haku Japanese Shoyu
For those in your life who love the art of traditional Asian cuisine and/or cooking, a beautiful bottle of shoyu makes the perfect gift. This shoyu comes straight from Japan, from an ancient Japanese fermentation process, and has the most delicious flavor.
We all know that alcohol makes the perfect, easy holiday gift, but what about for your friends who are #sobercurious or alcohol-free? Well, in comes Töst! Their non-alcoholic wine and champagne varieties are not only delicious, but the perfect way to celebrate the holiday season, sans the alcohol.
If you’ve been to my blog before, then you may know that Hu chocolate is my absolute favorite. It’s creamy, it’s dairy-free, it’s free from any funky ingredients, and the taste is out of this world. For the chocolate lovers in your life, I just know they would love to open up a big box of hu chocolates, this holiday season (plus, Code KALEJUNKIE gets you 15% off!)
18. – Le Cruset Dutch Oven
This gift is a little bit of a splurge, but it’s an investment that is well worth it. A dutch oven is essential when it comes to making all of your favorite winter soups and stews. And when it comes to dutch ovens, nobody does it better than Le Cruset. Their quality is impeccable and while they are an investment, they are meant to last generations.
19. – Essential Apron
A nice apron is an essential for any chef who isn’t afraid to get a little dirty! This apron is made of 100% durable cotton, and has a sleek and timeless design that I just love. Plus, it comes in a ton of cute colors!
20. – Salt & Pepper Mills
Salt and pepper are essential components of almost any recipe, which means that having a beautiful salt and pepper mill to house your most-used spices is essential! These mills are particularly beautiful, and may be making their way into my own kitchen very soon!
