There are people who love to eat, and there are those who think, breathe, and dream food. These are who often refer to as the foodies. And for sure, you have one as a friend. They are the ones who coax you into trying out the new restaurant down the neighbourhood. They cook you good food. They write great food reviews. Basically, they try to make you step you out of your comfort zone when it comes to food. They are a joy to have in your life.
Whether it is their birthday or they have reached a specific milestone in their life, you may want to return the favour. After all, they have taken you to fancy restaurants and made you try that French pate you are sceptical with. Foodies are not usually hard to please as far as gifts are concerned. So what you need to do is to tickle their fancy. Here are some gift ideas you may want to try:
Gift Idea #1: Gift Certificates to a Fancy Restaurant
Food for foodies? That is something they will definitely like. But this time, you may want to take it a notch higher. Why not take them to a fancy restaurant? They must have their favourites that they usually visit every once in a while. You can even have a party there. But if you want them to have that full experience—something that they can do themselves, you may want to give them some gift certificates. That way, they will be able to get what they want for themselves and their family.
Gift Idea #2: Good Cookware
More often than not, foodies are also good cooks. They experiment, try different ingredients, and reverse-engineer the recipes they have tasted. With that, you may want to give them some high-quality cookware. If they are a follower of a specific cookware brand, you may want to get something from that. You can give them a new baking tray, Pyrex pots, a broiler, and even a new set of plates. Fancy cutlery is also a good idea.
Gift Idea #3: A Special Edition Recipe Book
Still on cooking, you may consider giving your friend a special edition recipe book authored by their favourite chef or foodie. This can be difficult to find, so you may start looking for it ahead of time. If a special edition cookbook is not possible, you can get them exclusive passes for cooking classes. If they like baking, you can give them a gift certificate for baking classes.
Gift Idea #4: Wines and Chocolates
Foodies often enjoy the finer things in life, such as wines and chocolates. If they are big fans of these fares, it should not be difficult for you to give them these. There are many delicatessens and shops offering high-quality wines and cheeses. You may even find stores that sell drink sets gifts alcohol.
Foodies make the greatest friends. If you have foodie friends, show them your love through your good gifts.
