The Flavor Bible

This book is the #1 selling title under “gourmet foods,” aka a must-have for those who savor the art of recipe creation. Let your home chef’s creativity flourish with the help of this read. Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg gathered intel from the world’s top chefs and made an easy guide to bring out ingredients’ most delicious flavors through their complementary and contrasting counterparts. Brand new from $23, the good book will, no doubt, be stained and dog-eared in no time. Consider adding an additional note offering to taste test their creations, you selfless gift giver.

Reusable Utensils

These days, making the eco-friendly choice is easier than ever with plenty of options for reusable utensils. Your friend can snack on street food or sip coffee around the world without adding to the planet's waste. Gift your on-the-go foodie friend with  collapsible chopsticks to silicon straws. Or go for the whole set with these reusable bamboo utensils. Purchase them foldable and with their own carrying case to make it easy for your friend to slip them into any carry on.    

Laudreé Macarons

Laudreé Macarons Founded in 1862, Laudreé is Paris’ most famous luxury pastry shop. Cherished by the likes of Jessica Alba and Blair Waldorf, this iconic treat now ships to the U.S. Arriving in a deluxe gift box, these beautiful and mouth watering pastries are guaranteed to make the receiver swoon. A box of 24 will set you back a cool $73 dollars, but the memory of receiving such a decadent gift is sure to live on in the receiver's memory and instagram feed forever.

Magnetic Spice Collection

Speaking of beautiful kitchen displays, this magnetic spice collection is as much a conversation starter as it is efficient. With 24 organic spices included in this set, jars are refillable, and the super-strong magnets can be popped right on a fridge door without risk of movement or breakage. Although your foodie may already have a spice collection, as spices age they lose potency, any chef knows, a fresh supply will ignite taste buds and bring their favorite recipes to life. A small jar set is $130 and a large option is also available.

Engraved Spoon

This adorable engraved spoon  is a great way to show you care. Reading “eat well, travel often” it adds a personal touch to any display cabinet or coffee cup. Furthermore, at $9.99, it fits in any budget without skimping on thoughtfulness.

Gift Card

You know we couldn’t conclude this list without a travel gift. Give your foodie the gift of an authentic experience with an AirBnB Gift Card! They can use it to spend some time in their favorite location and even attend a cooking class in the area. Our personal favorite option.
