Disclosure: Some of these items were provided to me for free, though all thoughts and opinions are my own. The numbers next to the items do not reflect favorite to least favorite, but rather what order best fit my guide’s main image aesthetically. 

I’m back with another one of my holiday gift guides! My first one was for coffee lovers, and now this time it’s for foodies! If you follow my blog, you know I am a lover of all-natural and healthy foods that taste fun! I compiled a list of gourmet foods and food-related items that will sure bring a smile to your loved ones who like me, love to cook and love to eat!

 

1. Mrs. Renfro’s Salsa

mrsrenfrosalsa

As someone who likes to eat healthy and light, and often vegan, I am always looking for ways to add amazing flavors to my food that’s low in salt and sugar. For riced cauliflower, veggie burritos, or tacos, or plain steamed veggies I love to kick it up a notch with Mrs. Renfro’s Jalapeno Green Salsa. It is one of my favorite salsas, with the perfect amount of spice and lots of flavor. Mrs. Renfro’s gourmet salsas come in a wide variety of flavors, perfect for a non-candy stocking stuffer, or as a gift basket with their other gourmet products. They also have a list of recipes on their site-if you printed those out on cute recipe cards, how cute would that be paired with a salsa as an affordable gift? To purchase Mrs.Renfro’s Salsa, visit http://www.renfrofoods.com/

 

2. Love With Food Subscription Box

Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies : Gourmet gifts cooks and foodies will love!

Another one of my favorite subscription boxes I just had to include was Love With Food! Love With Food is a healthy snack subscription box, with various healthy and all-natural snacks from month-to-month. Some snacks are sweet, some crunchy, some salty, you get the whole package with this box! What I also love about this box is they really fill it up – it is JAM PACKED with delicious goodies! This box would be a great buy if you wanted to do a one time box and distribute its contents as stocking stuffers for the whole family, or if you want to get a subscription box sent to someone as a gift! The Love With Food box can be purchased at https://lovewithfood.com/

 

3. Bella Sun Luci 

Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies : Gourmet gifts cooks and foodies will love!

I am a believer that sun dried tomatoes and olive oil just make any lunch or dinner better! I love their texture, and they’re bursting in flavor! No one does sun dried tomatoes better than Bella Sun Luci! Bella Sun Luci is family owned, and focuses on high quality. To top salads, to put in pasta, or even have as a snack I love their bagged sun dried tomatoes and their olive oil-drenched jarred sun dried tomatoes. For a holiday gift, you can get pre-made gift baskets on their site, or buy products individually as a stocking stuffer! To purchase Bella Sun Luci products, visit http://bellasunluci.com/

 

4. We Cheesy Box

Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies : Gourmet gifts cooks and foodies will love!

One of my favorite foods in the world is cheese! There is literally no kind of cheese I dislike, and I love finding creative ways to pair different cheeses! The We Cheesy box fulfills cheese lovers’ dreams by sending different cheese and cheese-related items each month in their subscription box! They also give you a little pamphlet telling you where all the products in the box came from! The items are very gourmet, with my first box including goat cheese medallions, ginger biscotti (I actually tried the two together and were quite good), Parmesan chips, chai tea, and a surprise gift! To learn more about the We Cheesy box, visit their site here. My readers also can receive a special discount! Enter code MOUSECHEESE at checkout for $10 off a 3-month subscription with We Cheesy. It’s like getting 50% off the first month. Offer good for the first 100 subscribers. Must be used by December 31, 2017. Cannot be combined with other offers.

 

5. The Ginger People

As a foodie, I love things bursting with flavor! The Ginger People make amazing products that can be given individually as stocking stuffers, or combined into an awesome and unique gift. They have various flavors of Gin-Gins ginger candy, in bags and in travel sizes. I love to eat one of these chewy candies to help naueseau, or if I just want something a little sweet but without guilt! They also make ginger juice (great in smoothies or for someone who’s a juicer), and ginger chips (which are a fun foodie treat to have with kettle corn or in oatmeal), and my ultimate favorite: Ginger syrup! The Ginger syrup is great for baking, to use to flavor Greek yogurt, and if you want to get really creative with gifting, you can gift the ginger syrup with some Moscow Mule copper mugs as a gift!

6. Drink Duets

Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies : Gourmet gifts cooks and foodies will love!

This gift is perfect for someone who throws lots of parties, or entertains a lot! Drink Duets from Cheerware are customizable party ID tags. They have ID tags for water bottles and wine glasses. Whenever I have parties, I always leave out a sharpie for water bottles, but often times the sharpie gets lost, or you can’t write on the bottle if there’s too much condensation. Drink Duets comes with foam letters that guests can use to customize their tags (if they wish), making it much easier to find your drink! Wine charms have become a popular gift over the last few years, but I am in love with the Drink Duets ID tags since you get more ID tags for your money, and they have the water bottle ID tag option! To learn more about Drink Duets ID tags, visit http://cheerware.myshopify.com/

 

7. Shape and Bake

Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies : Gourmet gifts cooks and foodies will love!

Since I blog a lot about Disney and kid-friendly recipes in general, I love making things into shapes! I would often have to carve my cakes, etc. by hand to get a mouse shape or what have you, but the Shape and Bake kit lets you bake any shape you want! It is a super customizable kit where you can create the shape you need with their kit. In my Healthy Mouseketeers Facebook group, I like to encourage people to make Mickey-shaped foods, so the Shape and Bake will help make my Mickey-shaped baking a breeze! Rather than having numerous shaped circular pans causing clutter in my cupboards, I just need the one kit to make a Mickey head and ears!

8. Hello Fresh

Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies : Gourmet gifts cooks and foodies will love!

Have you ever tried a meal delivery service box? It is one of my favorite things ever! Hello Fresh is one of my favorite meal subscription services, since all the recipes tend to be around 30 minutes to make, and the vegetarian options are to die for! In a Hello Fresh box, you get all the ingredients you need to make the recipes provided. You get a booklet with step-by-step instructions (with pictures), so it’s pretty fool proof to make a gourmet meal! I of course love cooking and creating original recipes, but some weeks I love to give myself a mental break from thinking up recipes and just enjoy the cooking process with the recipes given to me through Hello Fresh! This past week, my recipe box had potato and brussel sprout hash with sunny side eggs, Grilled Vegetable Quesadillas (pictured above), and Harvest Flatbread. This is the perfect gift for someone who is a cook of any level, or if someone doesn’t want to brave the winter weather to make trips to the grocery but still wants delicious, fresh food!

9. EatSmart Digital Scale

Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies : Gourmet gifts cooks and foodies will love!

I love the EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale! Since I cook so often, I would always come across recipes that would call for a certain amount of lbs, ounces, or grams, and I would get so frustrated that I had no clue how to get my correct measurement! I finally got a kitchen scale! Every foodie’s dream! The scale can weigh up to 15 lbs, and can have the option to display in lbs, ounces, grams, or kg. I am also very picky when it comes to clutter, but this scale is compact, lightweight, and looks nice–it goes with the other stainless steel in my kitchen perfectly! I highly recommend stopping the food weighing guesswork and get a digital kitchen scale! To purchase the EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale, visit: EatSmartProducts.com

 

10. Hampton Creek Products

Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies : Gourmet gifts cooks and foodies will love!Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies : Gourmet gifts cooks and foodies will love!

Hampton Creek products are the ultimate find for health conscious foodies. They make all-natural products, that taste, in my opinion, better than the mainstream version of their products. They make dressings, Mayo, cookies, and cookie dough. I am obsessed with their “Just Ranch”, which is vegan, soy-free, and gluten-free. I use it on salads, to dip in, or just as a flavoring on top of steamed veggies. It is super rich in flavor! Their cookies, which would make a great part of a gift basket or as a stocking stuffer, only have 5 grams of sugar and are incredibly soft! Their peanut butter cookies with real peanuts are to die for! You can learn more about Hampton Creek’s food products at https://www.hamptoncreek.com/

 

11. Gráinne Granola

Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies : Gourmet gifts cooks and foodies will love!

I love putting granola on yogurt, or having like a cereal with almond milk, or just as a snack! It seems like so many granolas are filled with artificial flavorings, but I finally found one that isn’t! Gráinne Baking Co makes a granola that is the perfect amount of chewy, perfect amount of crunch, with all-natural ingredients. This is the ultimate stocking stuffer, and a great alternative to candy! The only ingredients are natural fruit, honey, oats, seeds, and nuts. They make granola bars, and brands of granola. Gráinne’s granola has become a breakfast time staple for me now, and is my all time favorite granola! With a bag of this, you won’t be missing the Christmas candy!

12. Rise Baking Box

Subscription boxes are huge these days! It is a fun way to give either a one time gift, or a gift that keeps on giving all year round, depending on what amount of months you purchase. Rise Baking creates beautifully packaged subscription boxes with a different baking recipe each month! And the best part? It isn’t a mix! Everything in the box is designed to bake from scratch, and it literally comes with everything you need (even perishable items). All the ingredients come in separate containers, so if you need to substitute an ingredient due to allergies, etc. it’s super easy to do that. Also, baking with a Rise Baking Box creates way less mess, since there’s no need for measuring cups- everything comes pre-measured and ready to mix! I got my first box recently, which were Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts, and honestly they were the best cookies I ever had! My mom and sister agreed! The chocolate chips were giant chunks of gourmet chocolate, and all the ingredients were super high quality. To purchase, visit http://www.risebaking.com/

 

13. Local Eclectic Bracelets

If you have a cook or foodie lover in your life, and want to give them something that isn’t food, something related to their interests but more unexpected, you have got to check out Local Eclectic! Local Eclectic makes these brass cuff bracelets with stamped lettering (and much more). My two favorites from their shops are their “Champagne Problems” bracelet, and their “Always Hungry” bracelets. (They also have a “I know Guac is extra” bracelet that is pretty awesome) These make for a great gift whether you wrap it or send to someone’s address directly, as the packaging is beautiful! To shop, visit: http://www.localeclectic.com/

 

14. Mommy’s Time Out

Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies : Gourmet gifts cooks and foodies will love!

Mommy’s Time Out wine is the perfect gift to show a mom in your life that you appreciate all she does and is well deserved of a little R & R! Made from vineyards in Italy, the taste is wonderful, so the awesome name is an added bonus to this great wine! Mommy’s Time Out comes in red, white, and pink wines, and also makes a “Dad’s Day Off” line. This gift is also great if you’re shipping to someone, since when you open the package the bottle comes in a beautiful blue silk bag! I love gifts that come already beautifully presented, since it’s nice to have something to unwrap for the holidays! To learn more about Mommy’s Time Out wine, visit http://www.mommystimeout.net/

15. Slimtini

Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies : Gourmet gifts cooks and foodies will love!

I love a delicious cocktail, but not a huge fan of sugary cocktails, or cocktails with lots of un-natural flavoring. Slimtini is a brand of Cosmopolitan that tastes delicious and uses premium vodka, and FRESH cranberries and citrus for flavoring. It is a beautiful rosy color in sleek packaging, which would make for a beautiful gift for Christmas time! And it’s only 30 calories per serving, so you can toast with a Slimtini throughout the whole holiday season! You also get good bang for your buck, the bottle is a nice, large size! To learn more about Slimtini, visit http://www.slimtini.com/#

 

16. Bittercube

Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies : Gourmet gifts cooks and foodies will love!

Can I just say, I am obsessed with bitters? I love gourmet foods, especially when they involve cocktails! If you go to any trendy restaurant or bar, you’ve probably seen cocktails that include aged bitters, which can be fruity, desserty, or floral. If you want to give someone who loves to make creative cocktails the ultimate gift, the Bittercube’s variety pack of bitters is the way to go! The variety pack has cherry vanilla, orange, jasmine, my personal favorite Bolivar, and more. You can get the variety pack or get individual artisinal bitters as stocking stuffers! To learn more about Bittercube, visit https://bittercube.com/

17. Willow & Everett Salt and Pepper Grinders

Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies : Gourmet gifts cooks and foodies will love!

For anyone who cooks at home, whether you’re an expert or a beginner, seasoning food with salt and pepper is essential. Even if you use just a light amount, salt and pepper are two of the most important seasonings to make any dish amazing. For good tasting salt and pepper full of flavor, you need freshly ground pepper corns and coarse salt. So many grinders are overly priced, but Willow & Everett’s stainless steel grinders complete with a caddy are very reasonably priced for the quality of the grinders. I Also love that their grinders come with a beautiful caddy, so it’s easy to transfer from cooking station to the dinner table! To purchase Willow & Everett’s salt and pepper grinders visit their Amazon shop here.
