Foodie is sort of a non-descript term. Does it mean cook, chef, kitchen helper or connoisseur of all things food? Hmm, to me it really doesn’t matter because I just love the fact that people appreciate finer foodie gifts whether they are related to actual cooking, or just items that you can use or consume in the kitchen.
It’s always hard for me to pinpoint just a few things I love every year because I enjoy oh-so many of them. These items aren’t always expensive, but sometimes they are, so pick something that the foodie lover in your life will enjoy, but that will fit your budget. This year I chose a variety of gifts that I either already enjoy or are hoping Santa puts under my tree.
This time of year is special, so remember those who are less fortunate and spoil the ones you love. It’s time to get shopping and make certain that this Christmas is super joyful.
