The Best Accessories and Tasty Treats to Get the Foodie in Your Life This Holiday Season
Finding the perfect gift for that special someone in your life can be hard, but the process is a whole lot easier when you're looking for a present for a foodie.
That's because tasty treats make for incredible gifts, and the food-themed gifts out there are virtually endless. This year, we've tried all kinds of amazing goodies, and below, we've collected a list of some of our very favorites that are sure to wow your favorite foodie this holiday season.
EcoVessel WanderWare 6-Piece Reusable Stainless Steel Utensil Set: $25.95
Know a foodie who's ready for whatever culinary opportunity throws itself at them? They need this compact and chic WanderWare utensil set. Available in black and rainbow colors, it includes a set of chopsticks, plus a fork, knife, spoon and reusable metal straw and straw cleaner, so they can be ready to dine, anytime and anywhere.
Nourish Foods Market Holiday Breakfast in a Box: $49.99
Just because it's the holidays doesn't mean it has to be all about the sweets, and this incredibly tempting Holiday Breakfast in a Box gift set from Nourish Foods Market contains everything you need to make an incredible bacon and biscuit breakfast for six. It includes an 8 oz. container of Pimento CHZ Club Original, two six-piece containers of Callie's Little Hot Biscuits in buttermilk and sharp cheddar flavors, plus a one-pound stack of Benton's Country Bacon and a 4 oz. jar of Peach Habanero jam from Hornsby Farms. The bacon is thick, salty and smoky and the biscuits are so soft and tender, and while we love the pimento cheese spread, we have to say the real winner here is the jam. After one taste, you'll want to spread the sweet and spicy spread on everything.

Foxtrot Omsom Asian Pantry Staples Gift Box: $75
We know that foodies love being introduced to new and exciting ingredients they can transform into pantry staples, and this box from Foxtrot including great flavors from Omsom and more does exactly that. If they've never had Japanese Kewpie Mayonnaise, Bachan Japanese Barbecue Sauce, turmeric spice, Fly by Jing Sichuan Chili Crisp or Omsom's Southeast Eastern Sampler, they're about to be introduced to the most delicious exotic flavors and become totally hooked.
Fly by Jing Triple Threat: $42
While we're on the topic of Fly by Jing, their Sichuan Chili Crisp isn't the only offering that foodies need in their lives. Yes, the spicy, savory sauce is good on everything (including, funnily enough, vanilla ice cream) but their other spices are also a must-try. We're actually most obsessed with their sweet, soy-based Zhong Sauce—we eat it on everything from pizza to burgers and more—but their spicy, herbal Mala Spice Mix is also a powerful addition to any dish.

Mekhala Organic Tom Yum Paste ($6.99) and Organic Red Curry Paste ($6.99)
For the chef whole loves bold, authentic Asian flavors, we can't recommend Mekhala and their organic spice pastes enough. For a fresh and one-of-a-kind Thai flavor, gift the Organic Tom Yum Paste, flavored with coconut, lemongrass, lime and more to add to broths and marinades, or share the classic flavor of Organic Red Curry Paste for a bold mix of herbs and chilies that takes any meat or vegetable to the next level.
Uncommon Goods Compact Swivel Cheese Board With Knives: $45+
For foodies, it's as much about the presentation as it is about the foods themselves. That's why we're so fond of this Compact Swivel Cheese Board With Knives from Uncommon Goods. It's made of bamboo and folds up into a compact triangle, but folds out with four different levels when it's time to put it on display. It also includes a hidden storage compartment for a cheese knife and cheese fork, allowing for the most impressive charcuterie displays.

Henry & David Charcuterie Assortment: $59.99
Since the holidays are a busy time, we won't blame anyone who'd rather receive a pre-assembled charcuterie board, and Harry & David make some of the best foodie gift packages we've seen. This one comes with four different delicious varieties of salami to take their next tasting to the next level.

Chariteas Christmas Morning: $11
We love a delicious Christmas-themed tea, and this Christmas Morning variety from Chariteas takes the cake. It's a caffeine-free rooibos blend that also includes peppermint, spearmint, cacao nibs, cinnamon and cloves for a minty, chocolatey flavor that's highly evocative of Christmas morning. It's sure to delight any tea lover—especially with a hint of sugar and milk.
Dona Chai Hot Cocoa Set: $40
Hot cocoa is a holiday staple, but why gift a basic mix when you can share something extraordinary? We're obsessed with this Dona Chai Hot Cocoa Set because it comes with a bottle of Masala Chai Concentrate (perfect for mixing up delicious chai teas every day of the week) as well as a single-origin cocoa powder from woman-owned chocolatiers Markham & Fitz and a Bodum latte frother. With the included recipe card, your giftee will be able to whip up the most delicious chai cocoa to warm them up in the new year.
Verve Culture Mexican Hot Chocolate Kit: $48
Verve Culture is also offering a unique approach to hot chocolate with their Mexican Hot Chocolate Kit. It includes a hand-carved molinillo wooden whisk, plus ceramic mugs for drinking. The cocoa is made traditionally by melting the block of cocoa butter, sugar, nuts and spices in milk over the stove in a pan using the whisk, resulting in a sweet and spicy drink that's traditional, yet unusual.

Lakrids by Bülow Winter Selection Box: $31
For the more adventurous foodies out there, we highly recommend this incredible Lakrids by Bülow Winter Selection Box. We're no fans of black licorice ourselves, but this incredible brand, which coats the licorice in chocolate, caramel and other tasty ingredients, has us converted. The flavors are unique and captivating enough to entice anyone.
Honey & Roses Coffee Co. Secret Stuffed Cookie Mixed Pack: $22
What's better than a freshly baked cookie? A freshly baked cookie that's also stuffed with delicious ingredients, like marshmallows or peanut butter cups. Honey & Roses Coffee Co.'s Secret Stuffed Cookies are anything but basic and are sure to satisfy any foodie's sweet tooth.

Their new Winter Collection for 2021 includes a Dark Nibs & Raspberry bar, a Milk + Cookies bar and a Spiced White + Caramel bar, each with gorgeous and festive packaging so that the bars look as good as they taste.

They offer chocolate-covered raspberries, blueberries, cherries and strawberries, plus chocolate and peanut butter bananas and white chocolate pineapples, that are sure to impress any fruit fan.
