Food lovers, gather round for I have found the cutest bunch of gifts to adorn your, or your food loving nearest and dearest’s present pile. Read on if you’d like to know my picks for the perfect gift guide for foodies.
Every kitchen needs a good quality pestle and mortar, I’ve been struggling along with a crappy IKEA number I got in a kitchen starter set when I first moved in with Kris… 11 years ago! I think it’s about time I upgraded and this beautiful pink salt number would look amazing in any ones kitchen.
2. Feather Cheese Knife :
Imagine this, the girls are round, the prosecco is flowing and the good times are being had. The cheese has came up to room temperature desperate to be cut and you bring out a butter knife. Oh the humanity! Good cheese deserves a good cheese knife and this with this feather handled knife you can be the smug hostess with the mostess.
See above, you can have the lovely cheese knife of your dreams but if you’ve got your cheese arranged on a stained and scratched chopping board then you might as well be serving it on the bottom of a stinky shoe. I honestly think if I don’t own this stunning agate cheeseboard I will never be truly happy. My cheese and I deserve it.
I don’t know how I’d function without my Kitchenaid Stand Mixer. Sure, they’re a big investment but they’ll last you a lifetime and you’ll grow to love it more than your actual family. I’m not even kidding. I just adore this Candy Apple Red version, in fact it’s sitting on my kitchen bench right now. The classic colour goes perfectly in any kitchen but if red’s not your jam, they come in tonnes of different colours. This is one investment you won’t regret.
I’ve fancied a set of stemless champagne glasses for a while now, I just think they’re so stylish. Speaking of stylish, can you get better than these gold spotted Kate Spade numbers?
I’m utterly enamoured with this glorious gift set from the Glutenous Gardener. This is one for the gin lover in your life (cough cough), the beautifully boxed set comes with a young Juniper berry plant bearing dark berries just dying to liven up your nightly g&t, not only that but you get some seeds to grow Angelica and Coriander, both perfect additions to your tipple. To get you started on your gin infusing adventures you get a bottle of SW1 gin included. Chin chin.
Are you even a blogger if you don’t own a bar cart?! Extra kudos if it’s covered in copper cocktail equipment. If, like me, you can’t live without a shiny copper pineapple ice bucket then Oliver Bonas has us covered. It’s sitting in my shopping basket right now (along with an actual shed load of other stuff, oops).
I’ve blogged about this book before and I can tell you, I still love it. I use it all the time, the recipes are just delicious and innovative. I love the little tips to alter the meals to your diet, be it vegetarian, flexitarian or meat eater, this one is perfect for all.
Are you even a blogger if you don’t own a monogrammed mug from Anthropologie? This gold version with have you the envy of the blogosphere. What are you waiting for, sip your tea in style.
These little animal ceramics from Quail are darling. I love this little kitty egg cup, it looks just like Muffin cat. Too cute for words.
These stacked cactus glasses add an instant pop of green fingered style to your kitchen. Now you can sip your cactus water from your cactus glass while tending to your cactus garden. Ultimate hipster points.
12. Marble Rolling Pin :
Another staple of the well functioning kitchen, a marble rolling pin. These pins are super heavy meaning it makes light work of rolling that fresh from the fridge pastry, not only that but the marble stays super cold. We all know that the art of pastry is keeping the bugger nice and chilly, well this does most of the work for you. You’ll notice an instant difference in your pastry making.
13. Cast Iron Infuser Teapot :
I have to admit, I like this one just because it looks awesome in photos. I have a large and a small version and they’re the ultimate food styling prop. I do use them from time to time, they don’t half keep your tea nice and warm. This version comes with a tea infuser right inside, perfect for the loose leaf lovers among us.
