Fantastic Gift Ideas For The Foodies In Your Family

 Most of us have got a friend or a family member who is a whizz in the kitchen, an attendee at all the latest restaurant openings or a fan of trying new foods and drinks. If you have a foodie in your family or friendship circle, here are some fantastic gift ideas to explore. 

Cooking or baking lessons

The beauty of cooking and baking is that it’s impossible to know everything. Even if you are a master chef or a baker extraordinaire, there is always a chance to learn and develop new skills. Lessons are a brilliant gift for those who love to cook and bake, regardless of their level of expertise and experience. There are classes and workshops for all abilities, and you can choose courses to suit your loved one’s preferences. You might be interested in Italian or Thai cooking classes for friends or family members who love to travel, or cake decorating courses for those keen to hone their baking skills and master the art of presentation, for example. Look for options in your local area, compare prices and read reviews.

Personalised hampers

What could be better for a food lover than a hamper of edible treats or a chest of beverages? You can choose to put your own hamper together online through a gift company or buy a basket or a box and fill it with a selection of treats of your choice. From truffles and retro sweets to savoury delights and alcoholic drinks, you can choose a collection of items that will tantalise the taste buds. 


Subscriptions are the gift that keeps on giving. When you sign up for a gift subscription, the recipient will receive a number of deliveries. Do you have a fellow coffee aficionado in the family?

Do you want to treat your mum or dad to a parcel of fresh produce every month? If so, there are all kinds of foodie subscriptions to choose from. You can usually choose how many months you want to pay for and you may also be able to get free gifts. 


Gift experiences are a fabulous way to show the people you love most how much you care for them and value them. Experiences enable people to make memories, try new things and broaden their horizons. If you’re shopping for foodies, why not look into activities like chocolate making, cake decorating, afternoon tea, gin tasting, vineyard, winery and brewery tours or luxurious dining experiences? There are options to suit all budgets.
