Let’s be real. True foodies can be hard to buy for! They either already have everything, or they are ‘cookware snobs‘ and only cook with the best of the best. Well, I’m here to give you an easy, hassle free guide to the best gifts for home cooks! These can be gifts for food lovers, kitchen gifts for friends or just unusual cooking gifts. Whatever personality that the food lover in your life has, this guide will help point you in the direction of some pretty perfect gifts ideas!
MY LIST OF THE BEST GIFTS FOR Home Cooks:
Just click the photo or heading to go to the item on Amazon!
Have you ever been so excited to cook a recipe you found in a magazine or cook book, only to be immediately let down because you are missing one of the fresh herbs that is required? Any home cook will tell you that this actually happens pretty often.
Help them ALWAYS have fresh herbs on hand by getting the foodie in your life an AeroGarden! They can grow up to 6 plants at a time, and the plants grow in water. So there is no soil and no mess.
The AeroGarden is one of the best gifts for home cooks who have everything!
Most home cooks have at least one Le Creuset baking dish because they bake in the oven so well. Well, Le Creuset has come out with a baking dish WITH A LID! I know, genius. The avid dinner party thrower will love the fact that they can scoop the food out of the dish and place it directly on the lid for serving.
This space saver is a must have for the dinner party connoisseur.
This is one of the best gifts for coffee lovers ever! I will explain. This awesome HyperChiller takes hot coffee and turns it cold in 60 seconds! Simply fill with water and place in the freezer, remove and place it in your coffee maker and brew or pour from a carafe in to the HyperChiller and then into your cup.
This is the best gift for coffee snobs because they will LOVE to show off how their hot coffee turned into ice coffee in 60 seconds.
Every true home cook NEEDS a KitchenAid Stand Mixer. It’s just one of those things. They can do SO much, from making pasta to spiralizing noodles, to mixing dough for pizza and bread and more!
Instead of getting your home chef a typical white or grey one, check out this Pistachio color! It’s unique, yet neutral, which is perfect for most kitchens.
This is the best gift for bakers, or anyone who likes to make food from scratch.
Is there anything better than wood fired pizza? How about wood fired pizza that came directly from your own back yard?! This charcoal and wood fired portable outdoor pizza oven cooks at over 930 degrees Fahrenheit, yielding crispy and slightly smokey wood fired pizzas that ANY pizza lover would drool over.
If you are looking for a gift for pizza lovers, THIS IS IT. It’s also a great ‘gift for him’, because we all know those men who live for grilling and cooking outside!
Does your foodie friend also love housewares and home decor? Often times they go hand in hand with home cooking. If this sounds like your friend, that I’m sure they will know who Joanna Gaines is of HGTV’s ‘Fixer Upper’. She has a housewares line called ‘Hearth And Hand’ and sells the CUTEST kitchenware.
Specialty salts and peppers have been a thing for a while now. Most avid foodies know this, and have an array of smoked salts and rainbow peppercorns. These salt and pepper cellars allow the home cook to grab a pinch instead of waiting for it to come out of a shaker. This saves time and makes exact measurements easier. I actually have the salt holder and I HIGHLY recommend it.
This is a great, affordable gift for a foodie that also loves home goods!
7. Chef’s Path Airtight Food Storage Container Set – 24 PC – Kitchen & Pantry Organization – BPA-Free
I think everyone can agree that having an organized pantry is heaven. Most avid foodies have this goal in mind. Help them out by getting them a set of kitchen organization containers! Ever since Netflix began showing their home organization shows like ‘Tidying Up with Marie Kondo and ‘Get Organized with The Home Edit’, I feel like more and more people are attempting organization through the use of Tupperwares and boxes.
It’s definitely not a fad though, and it really works to make cooking in your own kitchen less stressful and more organized.
This is the best gift for neat freaks or anyone that needs a little more organization.
Does the foodie in your life hoard cook books? Most of us do…I don’t think we can help it! The intrigue of new and exciting recipes and food visuals can be too hard to ignore. Well, this specific cook book is different from most. It contains not only healthy and unique recipes, but how to meal prep them for the week!
This NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER saves time, money, and calories. Gina provides smart solutions for healthy freezer meals, ready-to-serve dishes, make ahead family dinners, breakfasts and lunches and more!
Definitely one of the best gifts for someone learning to cook and meal prep!
This is definitely one of the best gifts for environmental activists in your life. This bamboo kitchen compost bin fits comfortably on the kitchen counter and turns kitchen scraps into compostable waste. I personally have this compost bin, and I have never EVER had an issue with smell. It comes with filters that keep the smell in, and they really work.
I recommend this eco friendly gift idea for anyone who is trying to be more environmentally conscious.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you must have noticed how prevelant instant pot air fryer recipes have been recently. Instant pot came out with a special lid that fits over their pots and Frys food with the air, no oil required.
It’s a healthy alternative to greasy fried food, and any true home cook would be ecstatic to have one. Unfortunately, Instant pot has only released the individual lid that fits one size of instant pot. (I found this out when I got the wrong size and it didn’t fit my pot), so purchasing them together solves that problem!
This is a great gift for busy moms, because they can make quick and easy dinners in no time!
Whether you are looking for valentines day gifts, birthday gifts for a foodie, anniversary gifts or holiday gifts, these are the best gifts for home cooks! Feel free to check out some of my awesome recipes, where I provide the home cook with a free spirited approach towards home cooking!
