2020 foodie holiday gift guide | Gifts for $20, $50, $250 and $500+ | The Hangry Woman

The holidays are my favorite because I love gift giving – it’s my love language.

I also love stocking my kitchen with fresh and new items I can use to make my food and cooking better.

This year, I set out to create a fun gift guide for foodies and home cooks.

I love the gifts on this list, because not only are they useful and memorable, but many of them will last in your home for a very long time.

Frankly, you’ll get lots of use from everything on this list.

Check out the blog below, or you can watch the video above on my Youtube channel for a rundown of the items.

Ninja Foodi XL Grill

The Ninja Foodi Grill came to me as PR earlier this year, but I haven’t stopped using it! It does so much – grills, air frys, bakes (like I made a steak in it and then after it was done I threw together a galette no more than 10 minutes later).

It’s a versatile appliance with very few limitations. If you love grilling, but don’t want to spend time out in the cold, this is a great appliance.

Your foodie friends will love the versatile settings, and ease of use. Plus, it comes with a built-in meat thermometer, so you’ll never overcook a meat again!

Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker

The Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker is my second very well-loved appliance.

I bought this one myself, and I can’t tell you how many soups, stews, and whole chickens I’ve made in it in a flash.

What I love about his appliance is that it has its place in my kitchen and is sort of nicknamed “the ease machine.”

While things like roasting a whole chicken in the oven for 2-3 hours results in amazing flavors, I can get a similar result in 45 minutes with the pressure cooker.

I love the joy of cooking, but I also love when it can be easy and carefree.

Our Place Always Pan and tableware

Ever since I bought my Our Place Always Pan, I have loved it. When we aren’t using our countertop appliances, the Our Place Always Pan is constantly on the front burner.

I have the Always Pan in Spice, but I also have some of their tableware and I have to say it’s equally as wonderful.

It’s both enamel and ceramic, so it’s easy to clean and sturdy. The dishes come in gorgeous colors, and everything is dishwasher safe. I also love their clear glasses.

I actually can’t wait to upgrade my entire kitchen to Our Place dishes.

Vitamix Ascent Series

Quite frankly the most expensive purchase on this list, but one of the best, I would be so excited to open up a Vitamix during the holidays if I didn’t already have one.

It comes with settings for smoothies, spreads, soups, stews and even a self-cleaning function.

Vitamix blenders are also known to last an extremely long time, so even though it’s an expensive purchase for this holiday season, it’s a great one!

Tortilla Blanket & Baguette Pillow

These are just totally fun gag gifts! Who doesn’t want to lay on a baguette pillow, or wrap themselves in an uber soft tortilla blanket like a big burrito?

Seasonal Honey Box

Honey is absolutely delicious, and if you have someone in your life who loves trying adventurous foods, this seasonal honey box is a nice surprise for them. They can use the honey to enhance their favorite recipes, and try blends from around the world.

Truffle Salt

Truffle salt is a very nice finishing salt, and adds that great umami/bitterness to a dish. Add a little dash of flavor to your foodie friend’s stocking with some truffle salt!

Silicone Bottle Stopper

Have a wine lover in your life? These silicone bottle stoppers are cute little knit hat patterns and SO useful for covering uncorked wine.

This is a totally fun stocking stuffer, and a thoughtful gift for those good friends!
