Valentine’s Day is 1 day away and for those of you who STILL have not gotten a gift for a loved one (doesn’t matter if it’s a boyfriend, girlfriend, co-worker, bestie, or neighbor) you still have time. After all it is the season for loving. ❤️ And if you have a foodie in your life, show them some love on Valentine’s Day with one (or all) of these “Foodie Based Gifts” they will be sure to love it!
These are also gifts you can easily run out and get without having to rely on your Amazon Prime membership shipping 😉
#5 – Buy a food based deal from a popular deal site (Groupon/Living Social/Pulsd). These three sites are known for having great dinner, food and drink tour deals which will be a hit in the gift department if you buy a foodie either a baking class or a whiskey tour. Depending on what your mate likes it will sure be a hit as a gift. Find the deal, print it out and put it in a fun card.
#4 – Buy a Bed Bath & Beyond gift card. I know right now you must being saying “what?!”. But hear me out. If you have ever been inside a Bed Bath & Beyond with someone who loves food, or someone who loves to cook this place is a foodies playground. There are so many cooking utensils, kitchen decor items, and kitchen gadgets it will make a foodies head spin.
#3 – Buy a food box subscription for your Valentine. Food box subscriptions are very popular right now. These subscription meal delivery services ship their members fresh ingredients and recipes every month. Plus the meals are totally Instagram photo worthy once they’ve been cooked. It also allows your foodie to collect recipes. If you are worried about certain diets most of the subscription companies provide special dietary options for vegans, vegetarian, pescetarians, gluten free, and paleo. Here are a few boxes I’ve tried and suggest: Blue Apron/Home Chef/Hello Fresh
#2 – Buy your foodie a ticket to a food conference or food talk. Many cities host events almost weekly or monthly where people discuss food, food culture, recipes, and teach food history. If you have a foodie on your hands they will be sure to love this! Eventbrite would be a helpful source for finding local food events to buy tickets. *Side note: be sure to look up the event before buying tickets to make sure everything is legit). For New Yorkers check out the Museum of Food and Drink (MOFAD) for talks. I would personally love a membership or a ticket to one of their food talks.
#1 – Buy your foodie a cookbook. It’s just that simple. If you know a foodie you know they can not resist a good cookbook. If you have a Barnes&Noble near you that’s even better but you can practically get a cookbook anywhere there’s a mall. Be sure to get a gift receipt just incase that foodie friend already has that cookbook but it’s a sweet gesture and guaranteed to be a hit. If you really do not have time to go out and get a cookbook don’t fret because you can purchase digital cook books which will save time.
I hope this post helped someone out there that has a foodie in their lives and wants to treat them sweet this Valentine’s Day.
