When I was asked to come up with some categories of gifts for foodies—and ideas to fill them—I didn’t hesitate in saying yes. My work for The Spruce Eats has given me many chances to suggest kitchen-focused gift ideas based on the tools I use every day in my own kitchen. This product roundup let me explore further ideas for specific types of foodies, from cocktail geeks to gardeners.
The piece has just gone live, in time for your last-minute holiday shopping or to keep in mind for upcoming birthdays and graduations. The ideas go beyond tools for the kitchen to include spice blends, infused syrups and oils, lunch kits, and food and beverage subscriptions and gift packs.
Learn more about some of my favorite gifts for food lovers in this product roundup.

If you need tags for baked, canned, dehydrated, or refrigerated gifts, I shared a downloadable set in this blog post. You can find more giftable recipes and kitchen tools in the recipe index and more of my work off the blog here.
