Need gift ideas for the foodie in your life? Here’s a comprehensive gift guide for food lovers to make gift giving easy this year!

The post Gifts for Foodies appeared first on Budget Bytes.

I don’t know how we got here, but gifting season is upon us once again! I did a lot of “research” this past year buying fun food-related stuff on the internet, so I’ve compiled a list of my favorite new finds and some tried and true favorite gift ideas for foodies into one comprehensive gift guide for foodies. Hopefully this list serves you well this holiday season and beyond!

I’ve linked online versions of these gift ideas below, but even if that particular item or vendor isn’t a good fit for you, hopefully it will get those gift ideas churning in your head and inspire some really great gifts this season!

Gifts Under $10

International Snacks – It is so much fun trying snacks from other countries. New flavors, new colors, new textures, it’s just such an adventure. Gather together a few fun and exciting snacks, place them in a stocking, gift bag, or gift box, and you’ve got an easy gift that anyone will love. You can find international snacks at your local international grocery store, or if you have a World Market nearby, they tons of fun foods from all around the world (all snacks in the photo above are from World Market).

Cute Mugs – A cut mug makes your daily coffee or tea ritual so much more special. The mug alone is a great gift, or you can stuff it with a couple of packets of hot cocoa, a few tea bags, or maybe a tea strainer or swizzle stick. (mugs picture above: mushroom mug, good vibes only mug, line art mug, blue glazed mug-not available online).

Homemade Treats – Homemade treats don’t cost a lot but they have big value because they’re made with your time and lovey. Here are some ideas for homemade treats that can be packaged and gifted:

Specialty Herbs and Spices – This gift can be as inexpensive or as expensive as you want to make it. To buy herbs and spices on a budget, go to international markets or markets where you can buy spices in bulk, which will allow you to purchase just a tablespoon or two of a variety of spices.


Gifts Under $25

Bacon Bin – This cute little gadget is perfect for the bacon lover in your life! It’s a silicone container that allows you to easily and safely catch and strain your bacon grease. Once cool, you can store the grease in the container for use in other recipes, or easily scoop/squeeze to discard (but please don’t discard because it’s SO delicious).

Tea Press – This beautifully simple tea press is great for people who appreciate a minimal aesthetic. I love watching the tea leaves swirl around in the glass carafe as they brew! Make it a set by including a package of your favorite loose leaf tea.

Pour Over Coffee Cup – I’m loving this single-serving glass mug with metal mesh pour-over filter. Not only is it really pretty, but it makes a great cup of coffee and is super easy to clean. This one is great for anyone who loves a good cup of coffee, but doesn’t need to brew a whole pot!

Cheese Board Set – Charcuterie boards and cheese boards are all the rage right now, so give the cheese lover in your life this cute little cheese set complete with cutting board and three cheese knives. It’s the perfect size for an everyday cheese board. You know, those nights when you want to treat yourself to something ✨special✨ and you just have cheese and bread for dinner? I know that’s not just me…

Ramp Up Mini Collection – I’m obsessed with vinegar, so when this set crossed my feed I immediately bought it. The set contains four raw and unfiltered flavored vinegars that taste good on everything. It’s a set of four small 2oz. bottles, but you only need a splash on your food to really brighten things up. (P.S. the bottles in the photo are not all full because I’ve been using them. 😅)

Jubilee (Recipes from Two Centuries of African American Cooking) by Toni Tipton-Martin – This cookbook is so much more than just a cookbook. It’s a history lesson, a culinary journey through time and geography, a visual masterpiece, and a compilation of some of the most delicious food you’ll ever eat. It’s beautiful enough to be on a coffee table, useful enough to be kept in the kitchen, and important enough to read cover to cover. Get this book for the food, culture, and history lover in your life!

101 Asian Dishes you Need to Cook Before You Die by Jet Tila – If you’ve been interested in learning to cook classic Asian dishes, but are intimidated, get this book! I love how simple, straightforward, and approachable all the recipes are. I’m really looking forward to working my way through this book.

A New Take on Cake by Anne Byrn – You might know Anne from her best-selling Cake Mix Doctor cookbooks, or from my previous recommendations for her books Skillet Love and American Cake. Her most recent book, A New Take on Cake, takes a fresh modern look at all the amazing things you can make with a box of cake mix (175 of them, to be exact). Her creativity is inspiring and the photos in this book will make you want to spend your Saturdays in the kitchen! It’s perfect for your family member or friend with a sweet tooth! …or if you just want to convince someone to bake for you. ;)

The Well Plated Cookbook: Fast, Healthy Recipes You’ll Want to Eat by Erin Clarke – Erin is a friend and fellow food blogger over at WellPlated.com, so I know how much heart and hard work she puts into the food she creates. After receiving my copy of this book, I immediately thought of about five people I wanted to gift a copy to. The recipes are simple, fresh, and absolutely fabulous!

Sweet Potato Soul: 100 Easy Vegan Recipes for the Southern Flavors of Smoke, Sugar, Spice, and Soul by Jenné Claiborne – The name says it all! I’ve been following Jenne on Instagram for a while (@sweetpotatosoul), so I was so excited to see her publish a cookbook. If you’ve got a vegan foodie on your list, get them this book!


Gifts Under $50

Fly by Jing Triple Threat Set – I’ve recently become obsessed with chili crisp, a Chinese condiment that is spicy, savory, and absolutely delicious on everything. So when I started to see ads for this chili crisp made by Fly By Jing, you know I ordered it on the spot. Not only did I try their Sichuan Chili Crisp, but I went ahead and ordered their Triple Threat Set, which also comes with their Zhong Sauce and Mala Spice Mix. Yep, I’m addicted to all three (Mala spice on popcorn is 💯). This set would make the perfect gift for anyone you know that loves spicy food!

Orchids and Sweet Tea: Plant-Forward Recipes with Jamaican Flavor & Southern Charm by Shanika Graham-White – Shanika is another one of my favorite accounts to follow on Instagram (@orchidsnsweettea_) because I love her flavor combinations and her photography gives me all the feels. 🥰 I bought her book as soon as it went on pre-order last spring, and was not disappointed! This is a great gift for someone who loves traditional comfort foods but also appreciates incorporating a few extra plants into their meals.

Caldo Linen Apron – I didn’t think I was one to wear an apron until my sister gave me one for Christmas a few years back. Now I wear it all. the. time. This linen apron from Caldo is wonderfully lightweight, which is nice when working in a hot kitchen, and has that luxurious linen feel. With plenty of pockets to hold cell phones, pens, and thermometers, this gift will get tons of use!

Anyday Starter Set – This incredibly well-made and versatile cookware is microwave safe (yes, even with the metal rim), dishwasher safe, oven safe (up to 500ºF for the bowl, 400ºF for the lid), and freezer safe. It’s basically the epitome of cook-serve-store cookware. I love this as a gift for anyone who doesn’t have access to a full kitchen (college dorms, RVs, long hotel stays) because it really opens up your cooking options when all you have is a microwave. Their website has tons of microwave recipes ideas, plus a lot of educational material to get you started, so it’s perfect for the new cook. You can get 10% for new email subscribers, which will make the starter set under $50, or use the code BF20 to get 20% off store-wide from 11/26-11/29.

Bushwick Kitchen Threes Knees Spicy Trio – I actually included this trio in my gift guide from 2015, but I’m including it again because I still love it! The gift set includes spicy honey, spicy maple syrup, and gochujang sriracha. It’s basically a spicy lover’s dream!

Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven – This is probably my favorite piece of cookware that I own. It makes a great gift because this is one of those pieces of cookware that will literally last a lifetime (and maybe even be passed down to your offspring). It can go from the stovetop to the oven, and the shape makes it versatile enough to use for soups and stews to pasta and rice dishes. You can use it for everything.

The Couplet Honey Set – I fell in love with Brightland’s olive oil and stayed for their honey. If you have a friend or family member who loves experiencing the subtleties of flavor in things like wine, olive oil, or honey, they’re going to love this honey from Hawaii and California. Sometimes it’s little luxuries like this that turn your everyday life, like your morning peanut butter toast or afternoon tea, into a special occasion.

Bubble Tea Kit – This bubble tea kit makes a great gift for teenagers or anyone who loves bubble tea, really. I know that *I* had a lot of fun using it to make bubble tea when I was photographing the items for this gift guide, and I already can’t wait to make more and try different flavors! If you want to make your own kit, you can source the ingredients at your local Asian grocery store and follow a recipe online, like this recipe from Healthy Nibbles and Bits.


Gifts Under $100

The Duo by Brightland*My top pick* This is probably my favorite pandemic internet purchase and will probably be my gift to just about everyone I know this year. If you’ve only ever had inexpensive grocery store olive oil, this will blow. your. mind. This olive oil is so good that I literally want to just drink it by the spoonful (I may or may not actually do this on a regular basis…). And their vinegars are just as great. These little spouts are super helpful to prevent drips, too.

Hedley & Bennett Kitchen Apron – Hedley & Bennet aprons are like the Cadillac of kitchen aprons. They’re made with heavy-duty canvas material, they’re extremely well made, and offer a lifetime guarantee. I bought the “egg yolk” version of their classic Carryall style apron because it matches the Budget Bytes branding, but they have so many cute colors and designs to choose from! Definitely get this apron for anyone who likes to feel like a professional chef in their own kitchen. They’re currently offering 20% off for first-time email subscribers, and they always have a lot in their sale section, as well.

Bushwick Kitchen Trees Knees Maple Set – As if maple syrup couldn’t get any better, Bushwick Kitchen went and infused their maple syrup with flavor (coffee, spicy, or cinnamon). Drizzling a little bit of this maple syrup into your coffee, onto some breakfast sausage, a bowl of vanilla ice cream, or on a freshly made biscuit is just *heaven*.

Vintage Collection Enamelware – If you know someone who loves the white enamelware bakeware and dishes that I use in my recipe photographs, this is where you can get it! Pieces range in price $9 on up, so you can buy individual pieces or build a custom gift set. Some of my favorite pieces are the enamelware mugs, roasting pan, and dinner plates.


Charitable Giving

Picking out cool gifts for our friends and family members is fun, but there is no gift as important as helping someone in need. For that reason, I always include charitable giving in my list of holiday to-dos. And remember, giving doesn’t always have to be a monetary or a physical donation, sometimes donating your time through volunteering is more valuable than anything. Here are some of my favorite food-related charities that can help make someone’s holiday season a little brighter:

My 2021 women’s gift guide is here! All my favorite things in one place that I love so much.

 

This gift guide is filled with TONS of my favorite things. The bags, shoes, pajamas and year-after-year items I use. You’ve seen and heard of a lot of them throughout 2021 as I’ve shared them in my favorites, but these are the best of the best of what I am loving!

2021 Gift Guide For Her

Canon Mini Photo Printer. Not only do I love this, the kids love it! I print out lots of pictures from my phone, which print on a sticker. You can add the pics to your planner, calendar, cards, etc. I stick pictures of Jordan in the kids’ backpack!

Mason Grey Robe. This robe is life changing. It’s light weight, but still warm and SO soft. I got one right before Jordan was born for the hospital. It’s wonderful.

Hotel Robe. If you prefer a fluffy hotel-like robe, I’m in love with this one. The tie dye on the edges is so cute without being obnoxious too. The kids have matching ones!

Cheese Board with Knives. The cheese knives are built in! So pretty.

MZ Wallace Sling. I can’t do the belt bag, I just can’t. But I CAN do the sling. This is the most incredible bag – crossbody, but cute and high up so it doesn’t swing and hit people. This is my favorite bag of 2021. 

Metallic Confetti Headband. This is my favorite accessory this season. I know headbands are trendy, but these (especially this one, my favorite neon sparkle) make you feel put together even if you aren’t.

Barefoot Dreams Throw. This wins for the best gift you can give anyone. I’ve gifted this probably ten times over the last decade. Everyone loves it. These are the softest blankets on earth.

Ugg Mini Boot. I will always profess my love for Uggs despite how ugly they can look. They are SO good for cold weather here. I get a new black pair every few years and really want the short ones!

Cheeseboard Puzzle. We definitely need this in our life.

Sorel Wedge Boot. I put these in my gift guide every year. They are my favorite boots – incredible if you live in cold/snowy weather. They are so gorgeous on, add height, but have lots of traction on the bottom.

Laptop Clutch. Love how sleek this laptop cover is.

Marble Cake Stand. Losing it over how incredible these are. I wouldn’t even use they for cake that often – but I would use them for cheeseboard height. 

Travel Jewelry Case. Absolutely adore this little travel case for jewelry. So cute and great for travel.

Lululemon Align Pants. You cannot go wrong with these. They have been uniform for years. Nothing compares.

Reversible Vest. I can’t get enough of this reversible shearling vest. I want both colors.

2022 Calendar. This is my wall calendar every year! It’s so beautiful.

Butter Socks. My grandma got me socks every year and I love the tradition.

Fancy Scrabble. We LOVE games in this house. I can’t wait until the kids are a bit older for games. This scrabble is so gorgeous it could be a piece of decor.

Charging Station. Asking for this this year. I desperately need one and the reviews are great.

Scout Tote Bag. Everyone, seriously everyone, needs a scout bag. They fold flat and take up no space. They have a zipper and hold SO much. You can transport anything in them. They are waterproof! Absolutely perfect.

Weighted Blanket. My brother and SIL got me a weighted blanket four or so years ago for Christmas. We sleep with it every single night. I can’t get over the gorgeous prints that exist now! This is such a wonderful gift.

Brumate Toddy Mug. I use this every morning for coffee. Also love that I can add a straw down into it.

Pave Huggie Globe Earrings. I am loving these! I can’t wear any long earrings right now with Jordan – these add sparkle without length.

Roxanne Assoulin Bracelets. Most favorite bracelets ever! Lacy got me into these and they are so gorgeous. I love a stretchy bracelet. And you can mix and match so many. Perfect for a color lover.

Beauty Mini Fridge. This updated version of my beauty fridge is INCREDIBLE. It doesn’t have to be used for beauty items. Throw some snacks in there, even drinks, even medication that needs to be refrigerated and near your bed/bathroom. I love this.

On Cloudnova Sneakers. Current favorite sneakers. I LOVE how they look – so cute but sharp too. And they are ridiculously comfortable. Seriously you won’t believe it. Jeans or leggings – perfect!

Funnel Neck Poncho. This is such a classic basic. I just bought it and think I’ll have it forever!

I say it every year, but this might be my favorite year of the kid’s gift guide yet! Now that I have a 3 year old and a 6 year old plus another baby, I feel confident in what my kids LOVE and enjoy playing with the most. This list hasn’t changed a lot this year – in fact, many things stay on it as Emilia moves into playing with some of Max’s things. One thing I left off the list because it’s so extensive: LEGOS! Max is absolutely obsessed with Legos right now and builds constantly. Since it’s been four years since I had a baby, there are a few new things on the list as well. And as usual, you can find a few kids favorites in each of my monthly favorites posts.

You can see some of our other favorites here: preschool favestoddler faveschildren’s books, and more! I’d love to hear below what you would include on this list too!

2021 KIDS GIFT GUIDE

Micro Mini Scooters. Get the ones with the fancy light up wheels! They are so fun.

Little Sleepies PJs! If you read my week in the life posts, you know how much we love these PJs. They last for so long, are so soft. The best!

Type Set Co Boards & Letters. The kids are getting one of these for Christmas this year. The letters are SO pretty!

My Big Wilmmelbooks. We love books in this house, but these are the ones my kids can get stuck in for a good while. It’s almost like a where’s waldo, but with scenes. We have every version, we always travel with them on road trips and they are really fun!

Doona Liki Trike. The Doona car seat is by far the best purchase for baby this time around. I can’t wait until Jordan is a little bigger to get the trike! Planning on this for us to use next spring!

Magnatiles. This has been one of the best toys we’ve had – as long as we’ve had kids. Max still loves playing with these at 6 years old and Emilia loves them too. They build together and play separately.

Color Changing Raincoats. My kids got these as gifts last year and they are just amazing. So super fun! We have the umbrellas and boots too. They are such a great gift.

Lite Brite. My 90s heart is loving this. Max is getting one this year!

Campfire S’mores Play Set. We adore this. It’s so cute and fun. Who doesn’t love play s’mores?!

Fun Fan Fryer. Our play kitchen gets used everyday. This is a fun item because it makes noise – like it’s actually cooking.

My First Play Table. We got this when Max was one and still use it constantly to this day.

Widgeon Fleece Jacket. Perfect for little babes – this is a velcro closure instead of a zipper!

Baby Taco Crinkle Book. This is my favorite toy for Jordan! It’s crinkly and loud and he loves it.

1000 Things to Eat. Another book we LOVE is this 1000 Things to Eat. We have all the versions of this too. Max especially loves this one right now.

20oz Hydroflask Bottle. Love love love these! The kids love them too. They take them to school everyday. Love that they are 20oz.

Melissa and Doug One Stop Shop. Another item that we bought years ago for Christmas – both kids still love this. There is tons of imaginary play that goes on in our toy room, and this shop is a huge part of it.

Kid’s Sorel Boots. If you live in a cold/snowy climate, I can’t recommend the kid’s sorel boots enough. They are SO warm. I can get two seasons out of them with Max, and then I save them for Emilia as she grows into them. The quality is so good.

Bug Hotel. Let’s be real, this is my worst nightmare, but the kids will go absolutely crazy over it.

Big Coloring Posters. These are a huge hit. The kids love them!

The Floor Is Lava. This game was the HIT of the holidays last year.

Illustrated Harry Potter Books. Max got these two years ago, but he’s SO into them now. We’re on book #3 and he loves them.

Aquabeads. Max really got into aquabeads last year. Now Emilia can do them too and we love doing this as a family, or they do them on his own. They are really fun.

Jumbo Coloring Pads. These coloring pads are another huge win. We do a ton of art and these are fantastic. One of these sheets per kid gives us 30ish minutes of entertainment, at least. They use crayons, markers or paint with these.

Nerf Tennis Set. Getting this one this year too! So excited about this.

Mushie Stacking Rings. Perfect for baby & toddler – love these colors.

Pizza Sidewalk Chalk. I usually get ridiculous chalk for the kids each Christmas and they love it.

Construction Plate and Utensils. We love these plates! Max is a little too old for them now but Emilia has days where she loves them (especially the utensils) – and these are SO fun for young eaters that I had to include them again. We love these.

Car Road Tape. This is a repeat from last year because it’s a life saver. On a rough day, I pull this tape out and place it all over the house. The kids instantly have a road/race track/etc and LOVE it.

Jellycat Stuffed Animals. These are our absolute favorites!! So soft and squishy and cuddly.

Giant Dinosaur Dominos. My kids are currently obsessed with dinosaurs. They have been for years. They will continue to be. It is fun!

Air Dry Clay Dinosaur Puzzle. See above! These are so fun.

Flipbook Kits. Max makes his own flipbooks on post it notes, so I think he will love this!

Voices of Inspirational Women Soundbook. Got this for Emilia! I can’t wait.

Melissa and Doug Wooden Puzzle Set. We’ve got a ton of use out of these puzzles – my mom also has multiple versions at her house and the kids love them. Emilia is really into them, but Max still enjoys them now too!

I love sharing my beauty gift guide every year! While you can find the beauty items I’m loving in my monthly favorites posts, the offerings during the holiday season are perfect for trying out new products or getting jumbo ones of your favorite size!

This is one of my favorite times of year because the gift sets are amazing – and you can get things to share with friends or use as stocking stuffers! If you want more options, you can always check out my monthly beauty posts.

2021 Beauty Gift Guide

Hill House Silk Pillowcase. I recently switched my silk pillowcase to this Hill House version and I LOVE it. This one has a zipper and it’s so silky smooth.

Waffle Bath Wrap Towel. This is my new favorite thing! I love wearing this while getting ready. It’s perfect.

Dyson Hair Dryer. This is a ridiculous splurge, but I adore it. Eddie got it for me for Christmas last year. If you have a lot of hair, you will LOVE this. It has changed the game when it comes to drying my hair.

Dyson Air Wrap. On that same note, this styler is also a game changer. If I can only take one hair styler somewhere, this would be it. It replaces hot rollers and a curling iron for me. It gives your hair so much body.

Bader Discovery Duo. Bader is so pricey and this is an incredible kit for the price. I cannot live without Bader. It has saved my skin!

Clear Cosmetics Case. My favorite travel bag – and I also use it for most of my toiletries. It’s great.

Vanity Kit. This is another option that I have and love. It’s so easy to use and very very lightweight.

Water Resistant Toiletry Bag. My everyday makeup bag! You could also use this for so many other things.

Makeup Eraser Set. I absolutely LOVE makeup erasers. I use them after oil cleansing and think they are amazing.

Sigma Beauty Essential Brush Set. Some of my favorite brushes in an incredible set.

Tom Ford Fragrance Set. This is the first time I’ve seen this and I LOVE that you can get this now. I have three of these scents and adore them. It’s a great way to try Tom Ford scents which are so so pricey in their full size.

Westman Atelier Tinted Cream Highlighter. If you know a makeup lover, this would be the most incredible gift. It’s so luxe and a really great product.

Summer Friday’s Jet Lag Mask. One of my favorite masks for dry skin. You can use this as a sleeping mask too.

KNC beauty eye mask. This is one of my favorite under eye masks. And it’s so cute too!

Facial Steamer. I bought this during quarantine and now I do regular mini facials. I love it. SO easy to use.

Tata Harper Mask Set. I love using this after the steamer above. The resurfacing mask is incredible!

Oval Artis Brush. This is the only brush I use for foundation right now. The dupes aren’t as good. This exact one works SO well.

Body Plane. I love these after showering with body oil.

Microfiber Hair Scrunchie. These have been life changing for my hair. They help dry it!

Coconut Milk Bath Soak. This bath soak is lovely and softening without bubbles. Smells so good.

Coconut Spray Body Oil. This is my favorite body oil spray. I love that it sprays. It smells like fresh coconut, not sweet artificial coconut. Almost like coconut milk!

54 Thrones Beauty Butter Set. My favorite hand and body cream, period! This is so rich. The scents are wonderful.

Laura Mercier Honey Bath. I adore this bubble bath. It smells incredible.

Brazillian Bum Bum Cream. This will transport you to a tropical paradise. The scent is intoxicating.

Rapid Dry Hair Wrap. I use one of these every time I wash my hair. They prevent breakage and help dry your hair quickly.

Lighted Makeup Mirror. I have a smart human makeup mirror, but found myself using this one more this year. I love the lights.

Portable Makeup Mirror. Same thing, but look at the size! This is perfect for any travel or even the car.

Masking Minis Gift Set. I love to break this set apart for gifts.

Body Scrubber. Perfect for anyone. SO easy to use.

Boucle Bath Mitt. Same as the above. This is the best exfoliator.

Facial Ice Globes. These are the new skin rollers!

Scalp Massager. I use one of these in the shower and love it. It’s so good for your scalp.

Fresh Rice Sake Bath. My longtime favorite bath soak – it will relax you like nothing else.

Double Sided Mask Spatula. Perfect stocking stuffer for the beauty lover!

Slip Hair Tie Bauble. These are the best hair ties to use for sleep. They don’t crease or damage your hair.

DePuffing Energy Mask Box. I would be so excited to get this. If you know a skincare lover, this would be amazing.

The best gifts for someone who loves to cook! My 2021 kitchen gift guide is loaded with practical essentials as well as fun and lovely items worthy of gifting. So many good options below!

My 2021 kitchen gift guide is here! It’s chock full of everything I’ve loved this year and a bunch of things I’ll be gifting to family and friends. These are the items that I deem totally gift worthy. If you’re looking for a full kitchen essentials list, you can find mine right here.

MY 2021 KITCHEN GIFT GUIDE FAVORITES – 40 Kitchen Gift Ideas

Nugget Ice Maker. I personally think this is the best gift one could receive! If you love crushed ice, it’s perfect. Cocktails, sodas, seltzer – it’s amazing.

Breville Smart Tea Infuser. This was one of my favorite purchases of early 2021. I have loved it SO much. If you don’t use it for tea, it’s a fantastic kettle too.

Light and Shadow KitchenAid Stand Mixer. I mean HOW GORGEOUS is this! It’s in my kitchen and absolutely stunning.

Pink Greenpan 1o Piece Set. I love all of my greenpans so, so much. I use them everyday on my instagram stories.

Global Knife Block Set. If you are looking for the BEST knives, these are it. The block is rather pricey, but it lasts forever (literally). You can also buy global knives separately and they are fantastic. Great for the serious cook.

The Always Pan. This is another pan I love – it can braise, sear, steam, boil and more. The only thing it can’t do is go in the oven.

Gold Baking Sheets. My all-time favorite baking sheets.

Five Two Wooden Spoons. These are my favorite wooden spoons to use in the kitchen. Definitely the best!

Salad Chopper and Bowl. Obsessed with chopped salads like me? Get this!

Cast Iron Garlic Roaster. I roast garlic all the time. This is the cutest!

Sous Vide Cooker. Another awesome option for someone who loves to cook. Sous vide is

Nutribullet. I love this to make quick vinaigrettes. I also use it to make a smooth if just one person wants it. It doesn’t get the smoothie as thick and smooth, but it works well.

Ooni Pizza Oven. You may remember a few years ago when I bought Eddie this pizza oven. We adore it. It makes woodfired pizza spectacularly!

Kale Razor. I adore this for removing kale from its stems. It’s a game-changer.

Finex Cast Iron Skillet. My favorite cast iron skillet. Use it constantly.

Mezzaluna. I love this knife for cutting herbs, making chopped salads and cutting pizza too.

Smeg Juicer. This has been a favorite of mine for years now. It’s incredible for juicing citrus and easy to use. We adore it.

Estelle Stemless Wine Glasses. The Estelle glasses are absolutely STUNNING. They are pretty enough to display at all times.

Eggs Tea Towel. My mom always gives the cutest tea towels as gifts. I love this one!

Silicone Trivets. Love the look of these in the kitchen.

Fruit and Vegetable Ornaments. My favorute!! I do a kitchen tree every year and these are so pretty.

Le Creuset Cast Iron Braiser. This braiser is the perfect size when you need a heavy bottomed pot but don’t need something as large as a stock pot.

Breville Smart Oven Air. This oven is quite the splurge, but it’s a toaster oven and air fryer in one. It does everything.

Raw Honeycomb. This is a cheeseboard staple and SUCH a treat, but it’s fairly pricey to buy for yourself. It makes a great gift!

Brightland Olive Oil Capsule. This is some of my favorite olive oil. The quality is superb.

Dona Chai Concentrate. Such a fun gift for a coffee or tea lover.

The prettiest table grater. I adore how cute this is. So pretty and adds character to the table!

Marble and Gold Servers. Prettiest for a charcuterie set up.

Swell Stainless Wine Chiller. This is awesome if you’re hanging out with friends. Keeps the wine cold.

Vineglace Wine Chiller. I use this one in the summer constantly. It’s a wine insulator and fits around an entire bottle. I love for champagne and prosecco.

Gold Cocktail Picks. Super gorgeous if you’re into happy house. Could gift with a jar of luxardo cherries!

Stagg Pourover Kettle. If you want the gorgeous old-fashioned kind.

Alabaster Rolling Pin. This is so so pretty!

Silicone Spoon Set. I use these every single day. They are the best.

Bodum Tea for One. If you don’t want a whole kettle, try this single glass! Perfect for work.

Bodum double wall glasses. These are my favorite coffee cups – be it iced or hot!

Microfiber Drying Dish Mat. Practical, useful and something no one wants to buy for themselves.

Mackenzie Childs Stock Pot. This is my favorite stock pot, especially because it doubles as decor. It’s on my stove top permanently.

Farmer’s Market Wall Calendar. Tons of character, basically adds some decor to the kitchen.

Over the Sink Strainer Basket. So useful – look at the reviews!

Marble Serving Cloche. This is absolutely gorgeous if you know someone who loves to entertain.

Truffle Condiment Gift Set. I love that this set includes honey!

Silicone lids. I received these as a gift and I love them. My shelves are a mess of pots, pans and lids and I can’t always find the lid I want. This is a great quick solution.

Gift guide week is HERE! We’re kicking this off with the best stocking stuffer gifts – these gifts are all under $25!

I know it seems ridiculously early. This is about three week’s earlier than I usually share my gift guides, but after polling you in last week’s Tuesday Things, you said you wanted them now! I love making gift guides and this is crazy – it’s my 11th year making them.

This is always my favorite gift guide to make. It’s easily the price range where I find myself buying the most gifts – whether it’s for a grab bag family gift (we pick names in a few instances in our family and it’s GREAT – highly suggest doing this if you haven’t yet.), a stocking stuffer, a teacher gift, a work gift, etc.

Most of the things you’ll find in my gifts guides won’t be a huge surprise – I’ve talked about lots of them throughout the year in my monthly favorites posts. However, I’ve scoured the internet and all my favorite stores to curate a guide of things I really, truly love, and would enjoy gifting or getting. This is my favorite list!

As usual, I’m sharing gift guides in addition to my regular content, so if these aren’t of interest to you, there will still be new recipes and/or Crumbs content every day!

2021 STOCKING STUFFER GIFT GUIDE – MY FAVORITE GIFTS UNDER $25

Everyday Dinners! My newest book is current under $20 – the best price I’ve seen so far! I have no idea when that price will change, so stock up for some holiday gifts!

The Pretty Dish. My second cookbook is also listed under $25 right now – a fantastic price for gifting!

OXO Chopper. This chopper is incredible. Great for anyone who hates chopping onions, celery, carrots, etc. It works like a charm.

Stovetop Simmer Kit. You could totally make your own DIY version of this, but I love these adorable packaged ones.

Fabric Shaver. The BEST. This removes those pesky little balls from furniture or clothing. I love it.

Truff Hot Sauce. I have gifted this for years. It’s SO good.

Epicurean Pizza Cutter. I have this and it’s incredible. We love it for pizza.

Foodie Ornaments. I plan on sharing an entire kitchen tree post, but how fun are some of these!

Brightland Champagne Vinegar. For those with good taste!

A mini gold whisk. Who could pass this up? LOVE it for a stocking.

Mini waffle maker. We have one and the kids love it so much. Also great if you just want a waffle for yourself.

Lightning to USB Cable Charger. My favorite one. Always needed!

Mike’s Hot Honey Single Squeeze Packs. I mean, could there be a better gift?!

Cocktail Infused Ice Cubes! The perfect idea.

Rainbow Stainless Straws. Super fun stainless straws. I’m always up for rainbow neon.

Wine Stoppers. I’ve been using these for the last couple months. They seal up the bottle of wine so well.

The prettiest bottle opener. Could go with the gift above too!

Luxardo Cherries. This is something I adore gifting! The bougiest cherries that are perfect for cocktails and kitchen lovers. You’ll want the entire jar.

USB Candle Lighter. I have gifted this for three years in a row now. It makes the best gift for almost anyone!

Pastel highlighters. I love nothing more than good old fashioned pen and paper. And when something needs to be highlighted, these are what I use. They are so pretty.

Happy Head Massager. Someone please put this in my stocking!

Thymes Fraiser Fir Travel Candle. It’s the ultimate winter scent.

Monogram journals. The bright colors are amazing. For the pen & paper lover!

Lily and Val recipe print. I LOVE love love these so much – she has many different recipe versions and they are so beautiful!

Wine Stain Remover. OBSESSED. Practically want to buy this on subscription. Great for the wine lover or even just a fun stocking stuffer.

Millennials vs Boomers Game. This is pretty funny.

The Hill We Climb. So inspirational and I just love Amanda Gorman.

Foodie Dice. This would be so fun to do with friends on vacation, or for a spontaneous get together.

Williams Sonoma Hot Chocolate. This is a classic – and also a great hostess gift. It’s so rich and the creamiest hot chocolate.

Patchology Eye Gels. I love these – they are so refreshing. Eddie even loves them. Great stocking stuffer for anyone.

Glass straws. My favorite reusable straws are the glass hummingbird straws. I love that you can see inside and can tell if they are clean or not.

Citrus juicer. This is one of those things that everyone needs but rarely buys themselves. Get a good one!

Milk & oatmeal Bar Soap. This scent is one I adore – warm, almond like, soothing milk and oatmeal. It’s so good.

Kate McLeod Stone. This body lotion stone is amazing. I’ve gifted them before and bought for myself many times.

Honey Spoons. For the tea lover!

Mindfulness dice. This is such a cute idea.

Bath shell pillow. The cutest pillow for any spa/bath lover. I need this.

Porter salad bowl. These are such high quality and make incredible gifts. This bowl is perfect for the work week. Whether you work in or outside of the home, prepping lunch ahead is a key to success. I make salads for lunch (minus the dressing) and store them in here and they stay great for 2-3 days.

Toaster Tongs. A practical little gift that pretty much everyone needs.

S’mores Wars Card Game. How fun is this!! Any card game including s’mores is a win. Giving it to Max this year.

Beeswax food wraps. If you’re trying to use less plastic, these are amazing. You can use them to wrap product, bread or even cheese and stick them in the fridge. They are reusable and wonderful.

Popcorn on the cob. This is one of my most frequently purchased stocking stuffers. Simply gift one of the corn on the cobs and you have a big bowl of popcorn.

Avocado food huggers. Two come in this set, meaning you can do two gifts in one!

Barefoot Dreams socks. My grandma gifted us a pair of socks every year and the idea still has a special place in my heart. I love gifting socks, as weird as it may sound.

Freezable Beer Glasses. Kind of genius!

Matcha Whisk. I use this to froth all milk. It’s wonderful. 

Hair Tie Bracelet. Um, can you even believe this exists?! I have had a black hair tie on my wrist for 30 years.

Reversible Faux Leather Tote. Absolutely in love love love with this!

Nest Holiday Candle. One of my favorite scents of all time. This candle is such a classic wonderful gift. It’s also a great winter scent, to use after the holidays.

24 oz Hydroflask. I love this size of hydroflask because it fits in car holders and the peloton bike.

Insulated Stainless Steel Mug. Another fave right here, if you’re an iced coffee drinker!

Mini Cooler Backpack. This is brilliant, and I want to get one for trips to the park with the kids in the summer.

Courtly Check Mug. My love of courtly check knows no bounds.

Gemstone Sensor Night Lights. Ever since having kids, we are a night light house. We have them in every room. I love them!

Lustered Cocktail Shaker. I have a similar one to this and get so many compliments on it. It’s beautiful on a bar cart or buffet stand.

Cheese Knives. This is my mom’s signature gift. She also breaks some of these apart and gives them to friends.

Floating Bluetooth Speaker. I am obsessed with the fact that this FLOATS. That is incredible. 

Jewelry Stand. I have one of these stands on my dresser. It’s wonderful for delicate necklaces. It looks pretty too.

Glass Candy Stripe Bowl. This is such a statement piece. I would leave it out all year

Patissier Bread Box. On the same note as bread baking, I love this bread box! It’s beautiful. 

Shower Steamers. I love this gift for anyone. Not as messy as a bath bomb and so relaxing.

Hollywood Picture Frame. I do picture frames with the kids in them for multiple family members every year. These ones are so beautiful. 

Match Cloche. This reminds me of something my grandma had. It’s so beautiful. 

Marbled Cheese Board. I don’t think you can ever go wrong with a cheese board! 

Rifle Paper Desk Tackle Box. If you know a pen and paper freak like me, this would be the most incredible gift.

2020 Gift Guide: For Kids!

I say it every year, but this might be my favorite year of the kid’s gift guide yet! Now that I have a newly 3 year old and an almost 6 year old, I feel confident in what my kids LOVE and enjoy playing with the most. This list hasn’t changed a lot this year […]

2020 kid's gift guide

I say it every year, but this might be my favorite year of the kid’s gift guide yet! Now that I have a newly 3 year old and an almost 6 year old, I feel confident in what my kids LOVE and enjoy playing with the most. This list hasn’t changed a lot this year – in fact, many things stay on it as Emilia moves into playing with some of Max’s things. One thing I left off the list because it’s so extensive: LEGOS! Max is absolutely obsessed with Legos right now and builds constantly.

You can see some of our other favorites here: preschool favestoddler faveschildren’s books, and more! I’d love to hear below what you would include on this list too!

2020 Kids’s Gift Guide

Magnatiles. This has been one of the best toys we’ve had – as long as we’ve had kids. Max still loves playing with these at 6 years old and Emilia loves them too. They build together and play separately.

Straw Constructor Set. This quaratine find has been gold. This keeps the kids entertained for house. And while it can kind of be a mess when playing, it packs up nicely into this box.

Aquabeads. Max really got into aquabeads this year. Emilia is too young to do these on her own, but we love doing this as a family, or Max does them on his own. They are really fun.

Melissa and Doug One Stop Shop. Another item that we bought years ago for Christmas – both kids still love this. There is tons of imaginary play that goes on in our toy room, and this shop is a huge part of it.

Melissa and Doug Pizza Counter. We also have tons of play food, but the pizza set is definitely a favorite!

LCD Writing Tablets. I love these writing tablets for the kids. They are incredible for travel, but since no one is doing that right now, the kids spend some time on them in the afternoons too. They love to draw things and then have us guess what they are.

Jumbo Coloring Pads. These coloring pads are another huge win. We do a ton of art and these are fantastic. One of these sheets per kid gives us 30ish minutes of entertainment, at least. They use crayons, markers or paint with these.

Scoop and Learn Ice Cream Truck. Emilia got this gift last year for her birthday and it’s been a favorite this year. Both kids push this around and make their own ice cream truck. It is super fun.

Construction Plate and Utensils. We love these plates! Max is a little too old for them now and Emilia is slowly getting over them (especially the utensils), but these are SO fun for young eaters that I had to include them again. We loved these.

Connect 4. We’ve entered the years of playing games now with Max and connect 4 is definitely his favorite.

Hanna Andersson Pajamas. I’ve raved about these PJs for years. The quality is incredible. I also exclusively buy Hanna pajamas! They are a wonderful gift.

Kid’s Sorel Boots. If you live in a cold/snowy climate, I can’t recommend the kid’s sorel boots enough. They are SO warm. I can get two seasons out of them with Max, and then I save them for Emilia as she grows into them. The quality is so good.

Mini Melissa Mary Janes. On the same shoe note, Emilia lives in mini Melissas! These are the shoes she has worn for about two years now. They smell like candy (really), are great for play or cute to wear with something nice. We love these.

Hungry Hungry Hippos. Max is also very into hungry hungry hippos! This is a fun one because Emilia can easily play too.

Car Road Tape. This is a repeat from last year because it’s a life saver. On a rough day, I pull this tape out and place it all over the house. The kids instantly have a road/race track/etc and LOVE it.

Zara Basic Puffer. For years I have been a lover of Patagonia sweater coats for my kids. They last two seasons and I can pass Max’s down. However! This Zara puffer is incredible – so warm, so cute and an amazing price. Emilia had one last year, and this year I got Max one too! There is a pink version is here.

Kid’s Whale Slippers. I got these for the kids to match – they LOVE matching. Fun slippers are always a good choice.

My Big Wilmmelbooks. We love books in this house, but these are the ones my kids can get stuck in for a good while. It’s almost like a where’s waldo, but with scenes. We have every version, we always travel with them on road trips and they are really fun!

1000 Things to Eat. Another book we LOVE is this 100 Things to Eat. We have all the versions of this too. Max especially loves this one right now.

Jump Rocket Launcher. We got this over the summer and oh my, it gives you tons of entertainment. It’s definitely an outdoor toy, and it’s so light and easy that you can take it anywhere.

Dominoes. We fell in love with dominoes this year too. Max will meticulously set them up only for Emilia to knock one down. I swear it’s super fun.

Fleece Robe. Every other year I love to do robes for the kids on Christmas too. Robes and slippers for life!

Melissa and Doug Wooden Puzzle Set. We’ve got a ton of use out of these puzzles – my mom also has multiple versions at her house and the kids love them. Emilia is really into them, but Max still enjoys them now too!

Everything I’m loving this year for my 2020 men’s gift guide – and everything Eddie is loving too! This is a mix of what I’ve bought him in the past and what he is getting this year. So much to love! Of course these gifts can be for anyone, but I know all the guys in my life would loooove this stuff! There are also some great ideas in my gift guide under $25.

2020 MEN’S GIFT GUIDE

Grand Band Money Band. For the guy who doesn’t want to carry a wallet anymore! 

Wooden Fractal Puzzle. This year we are allll about the games since we are staying at home more. Obsessed with this puzzle that would drive me mad.

Bubble wrap calendar. This would probably be Eddie’s dream calendar.

Paper Plane Launcher. Every year I like to get Eddie a “fun” gift – nothing fancy, but something that makes him feel like a kid again. This is it this year!

Cashmere Scarf. Then something like this to make him feel like a fancy guy. Ha. 

Gratitude Card Set. I love these gratitude card sets and think they are perfect for anyone!

Wooden Foot Massager. Love this for under desks! 

Retro Patagonia Vest. We are a big puffer/fleece vest family. It’s perfect for our weather. I love this retro Pataognia version. 

Desktop Skee Ball. My ultimate favorite arcade game. I might buy this for Eddie and then put it on my own desk!

Allbirds Wool Runners. A few years ago I got Eddie Allbirds and he fell in love. They are now his favorite shoe and he has multiple different versions!

Neck Massager. This is the best neck and back massager you will find. It is life changing! 

La Colombe Coffee. Best.coffee.ever. 

Stance Socks. These are Eddie’s favorite socks by far. We always get him a few pairs of fun socks! 

Yeti Backpack Cooler. Yeti products are one of the best things we have ever bought. They are pricey but worth it. I can’t even tell you how much use we have got out of this cooler.

Charcuterie Slicer. This charcuterie slicer is perfect! 

Yeti Rambler. This is the most used cup in our house. We both have two, so we can rotate when one is in the dishwasher. It’s great because it fits in your cup holder too.

Popcorn Seasoning Set. I’ve gifted this so many times and it is always a huge hit. 

Belgian Waffle Maker. We have this waffle maker and while it’s a splurge, we also have gone through about 10 waffle makers since we got marrier. This is by far the best we’ve ever had. 

Cocktail Party Bundle. Gaby’s set has drink mixes and seasonings. I love it! 

Dad Jokes. I couldn’t help it. This is such a fun stocking stuffer.

Theragun Mini. I bought Eddie this for his birthday this year. It’s perfect if you have a runner or someone who loves to work out (and is therefore, sometimes sore!).

Cryosphere. We have one of these and it is incredible. It can massage out any knot and is great for back and neck tension.

Kiehls Skincare Set. Every year I get Eddie a skincare set and it is one of his favorite gifts! 

Magnetic Collar Stays. Eddie has collar stays all over the house. He needs these more than anything.

Chess and Checkers Set. More board games, in a fun pattern!

Momofuku Chili Crunch. Can’t say no to spicy chili crunch.You can put it on everything.
