With the leftovers serran-wrapped in the fridge and the Christmas trees popping up in neighbor's windows, it means the inevitable is here gang.
It's time for Christmas shopping.
If you're like me, you have a hate/love relationship with Christmas shopping. I hate feeling forced to buy things for friends and family that they may not necessarily need or even want. However, I do absolutely love giving gifts to people; it's one of my love languages and brings me joy to do so.
With that said, I've decided to hopefully give y'all a few ideas these next few days leading up to December 1st with several gift guides that may help you narrow down something special or at least thoughtful for those friends and family members on your Christmas list that you still are struggling to buy for.
For today's gift guide, I'm focusing on a list of items that I certainly wouldn't be upset to find in my stocking or under my tree...it's my FOODIE Christmas gift guide! As a certified foodie, I guarantee these goodies and gadgets will satisfy the inner Bobby Flay or Carla Hall in us all!
1. First Leaf Wine Club
2. Hand-Stamped Peanut Butter Spoon
These hand-stamped spoons make the perfect any peanut butter addict in your life. At $18, this would be adorable as a stocking stuffer or paired with a jar of gourmet peanut butter. Just click on the image for the link!
3. Ceramic Pizza Stone
While grilled pizza is a popular trend, it can be tricky to pull off logistically. This pizza stone makes the process so much easier to pull off while keeping your grill clean. If you haven't tried grilled pizza yet, now is the time to try. These pizza stones are only $35! Most gourmet pizzas are half that price; why not just start making them at home?

4. Mouth Food Club
5. Cold Brew Kit
For those iced coffee fanatics, being able to make your own cold brew at home is the gift that keeps on giving! At only $18.99 for the kit, you can make and store 6 cups of homemade cold brew. No need to keep buying the overpriced cold brew at the store. Click on the image above to see the link on Amazon.
I am a HUGE fan of making my own veggie noodles. While I stick to zucchini noodles, you can spiralize sweet potatoes, carrots, butternut squash, and even apples to make effortlessly elegant appetizers, salads, and meals that are low-carb, gluten-free, and paleo-friendly. Plus, it's easy to clean and dishwasher safe. For only $29.99, this would be perfect for any healthy foodies on your grocery list. The image above has a link to Amazon.
7. Wusthof Chef Knife
Every inspiring foodie MUST have quality knives. There's no way you can get your Top Chef on without quality knives. For years now, I've been using Wusthof knives and love them! While these are pricey (at $99.95 for an 8-inch chef knife), they will last. In fact, they come with a lifetime guarantee. The link in through the image above.
8. Rewined Candles
From Spiked Cider to Champagne to Cabernet, these candles would be a cute pairing with a bottle of wine or fun wine glasses. As someone who still craves wine but can't indulge in it these days, these are a pregnant lady's dream! Plus, these are made in the USA from repurposed wine bottles. At $25-30 a candle, these make a perfect gift for those people on your list who seem to have everything. Click on the image to go to the Amazon link.
9. Cooking Magazine Subscription
Nothing pumps me up more than receiving my monthly copy of cooking and food magazines. From Southern Living to Food Network to Real Simple, there's nothing better than flipping through those glossy pages of stunning food photography, not to mention the countless recipes that come with it. At anywhere from $5-$12 for an ANNUAL subscription, this makes for a budget-friendly gift for any foodie in your life.
Alrighty gang, that's what I've got cooked up for y'all for this gift guide. Tomorrow, in addition to my Monday Motivation, I'll be sharing my fitnessista gift guide. Double postin' it? You betcha. Only for y'all, though.
