Do you have a foodie for a friend, lover or family member? If so, they will have introduced you to some incredible food experiences over the course of your relationship. But how do you say thank you?
Foodies can be tricky to buy for because the chances are they have been there and done that already. So, if you are stuck for ideas, read on. These gift ideas will help you give them something useful, pleasurable, or just plain different. Let’s take a look right away.
Set Of Knives
Now, we would only recommend getting a knife set if you are positive that you are going to get on well for the foreseeable future! On a serious note, there is nothing that frustrates a foodie more than being unable to cut things properly when they are cooking at home. Make sure they have the best knives you can afford – and you should consider a sharpening block, too.
Make Them A Spice Block
Spice is such a vital ingredient for any food lover, and without it meals just seem tame and rather limp. So why not give your foodie friend a spice block? Now, they aren’t the most exciting gift in the world, but that soon changes if you can make it yourself. Don’t worry if you are no good with DIY – there are plenty of easy-to-follow guides out there that can help. Have a look at this one to get you started.
Cook Them A Meal
You might be thinking that cooking a meal for a foodie is a daunting task. Well, you are right! But, just making the effort for them will be enough for many of them. If you aren’t all that skilled in the kitchen, keep to simple things that you know you can do well. Great food is great food, so it doesn’t matter whether you are cooking squid bonbons with pea foam or a good old-fashioned spag bol. It’s the effort that counts, not the meal itself.
Pie In The Sky
If you really can’t cook, then consider taking them out for a meal. There’s a very good chance that your friend, partner or family member has already done the exotic places to eat in your area, so you’re going to have to think outside the box. Choose an exotic location, for example. Why not take your loved one for a meal at the White Tower Restaurant in Blackpool? It will give you impressive views of the Blackpool skyline while you munch away on fresh Lancashire produce. You can even hire it out for parties, too, if you want to hit the dancefloor later on.
If your foodie friend loves a challenge, then give them some Foodie Dice. It’s just nine wooden cubes split up into categories – five of them are primary ingredients, and the rest are vegetables. All they do is roll away, and they have to come up wit a meal. It will give them some great suggestions for meals, and challenge their cooking skills to the max. Take a look over at Firebox.
Hopefully, this will have inspired you in your search for gifts for a foodie friend. We aren’t all that hard to please – honestly!
