There are a wide variety of people on our Christmas lists. There are those who looooove cats and then there are those who are absolutely obsessed with makeup. We also cannot forget about the foodies. They are a discerning bunch. It is tempting to get them a gift card to their favorite restaurant or treat them to a nice meal, but there are actually a lot of presents beyond restaurant meals that they will love. And some of them aren’t even edible.

Take a look at the best gift ideas for foodies:

1. Gold Taco Necklace ($32, Nylon Shop)


Anyone would appreciate some fresh tacos, but they sometimes don’t mix well with other holiday foods. And wrapping them up in a box doesn’t make them better. That’s why this taco necklace makes a much better gift.

2. Star Wars Pop Mold ($24.95, Williams Sonoma)


Making frozen popsicles is fun, but it’s even better when you’re creating them with adorable molds. These ones are perfect for all Star Wars fans.

3. Nordstrom Makers Chocolate Milk Chocolate Almond Toffee ($24.95, Nordstrom)


This is what we’re talking about when we think of a box full of goodies. The mix of milk chocolate and almonds makes it impossible to have just one bite.

4. Extra Fries Graphic Ringer Tee ($10.90, Forever 21)

Who’s going to choose exercise over extra fries? That just wouldn’t be right. This cute T-shirt makes the recipient’s choice crystal clear.

5. Francophile Matryoshka Measuring Cups ($34, Anthropologie)

Measuring Cups

Hands up if you’ve seen measuring cups like this before? No? Didn’t think so. They’re just as functional as some more traditional styles. Plus, they’re microwave and dishwasher safe.

6. Metal Salad Severs ($14.99, H&M)


If someone told you that these were earrings, you would probably believe them. Just look at how chic they are. In actuality, they are a very cool set of salad servers complete with decorative feather ends.

7. Grilled Cheese Kitchen by Heidi Gibson and Natalie Pollak ($19.95, Urban Outfitters)

8. Skinnydip Junk Food Iron On Patches ($15.50, ASOS)


Now your friend can turn anything in her wardrobe into a foodie favorite thanks to these patches. The patches look as good grouped in a cluster as they do individually.

9. Japanese “Feed Me” Tee By Tee & Cake ($45, Topshop)

10. Mrs. Prindables Indulgent Festive Gift Basket ($210, Macy’s)


Do you have a foodie on your list who has been really good this year? This basket is just the thing to reward them with. Try to resist the urge to eat anything before you give it to them, okay?

11. While the Cat’s Away Bottle Opener ($17.99, ModCloth)


Who says that bottle openers have to be boring? This one definitely isn’t. It could be left out on the counter all of the time to add a little something to the kitchen.

12. Better Baking: Wholesome Ingredients, Delicious Desserts by Genevieve Ko ($19.87 Barnes and Noble)


Who is hungry just from looking at the front cover of this book? Maybe the recipient will say thank you for the cookbook by making you something from it.

13. Illy Caffe Merveilleux Coffret with Flavored Teas & Infuser ($69, Barneys)


This tea set is so chic that you do not need to wrap it up. You can simply give it as is.
