The holidays can be tough. Never mind having to navigate the waters vis-a-vis family dynamics, it’s tough buying gifts that are unique to each person on your list! Well, I can’t help you with everyone on your list but I can sure help you find the perfect gift for the Crunchy Foodie on your list!
What’s a Crunchy Foodie You Ask?
Unofficially, a Crunchy Foodie is someone who has a love of good, wholesome, nourishing food. A Crunchy Foodie takes ‘foodie’ to a whole new level because we crunchy foodies value fermented food, bone broth, soaked and sprouted, dehydrated etc…
I have put together a list of foodie gift ideas that will make any Crunchy Foodie smile.
*please note that I have not received any financial compensation from any of the products on this list. This is simply a list that I have put together of products that I currently use or would love to receive as a gift (*hint, hint).
1. Quality Digital Meat Thermometer
Every Crunchy Foodie is particular about properly cooked meat. I grew up thinking meat had to be tough and chewy to be ready, spare another of this outrage with a meat thermometer like this one.
2. Large Stainless Steel Bento Box
Take out is not usually an option to a crunchy foodie because, well, we are very
picky particular about the food we eat. Lunch problems are solved with a compartmentalized stainless steel bento box. This would nicely accommodate many types of fermented veggies 😉
3. Joseph Joseph Herb Chopper
This baby chops like nobody’s business and us crunchy foodies sure love to toss
a ton of some herbs into our cooking!
5. Organic Fair Trade Quality Chocolate
A Kit Kat won’t cut it. Buy any Crunchie Foodie a chunk of organic, fair trade, clean, dark chocolate and you’ll have a friend for life! I like this one because it is clean (no soy lecithen) plus I like its simple yet unconventional packaging.
6. Quality Wooden Cutting Board
A plastic cutting board has no place in the Crunchy Foodie’s kitchen. Home cooked food is essential for quality control and nothing is more beautifully inspiring than a quality wooden cutting board like this one.
7. Coffee or tea snob?
A crunchy foodie only drinks quality coffee and the beans are only half of the equation! Presenting your crunchy foodie with a Chemex Full Body Starter Kit will show just how much you get it! 😉
Tea. Ah tea. But not just any tea. Organic, Fair Trade Tea. This beauty presented in a handmade bamboo box will let anyone know that you care about them (and their health).
8. A Spiralizer
This Paderno Spiralizer is really one of my favorite kitchen tools. Veggie noodles and sweet potato spirals are just a few of this little guys talents.
We all have a hundred+ cookbooks and this is a super cool way to keep the book open while chopping or sautéing.
Yup, I said Scrabble, but not just regular old Scrabble – the Cooking Edition!
11. Something Homemade
a) Raw Chocolate Rum Balls – RUM! ’nuff said!
b) DIY Natural Sleep Mist
e) This round up of “Thank You For Being” Gifts
f) This list of 35 Handmade Gifts has beautiful recipes for DIY soap, Chai mix, Body Wash, Sugar Scrub etc, etc, etc…
I hope this helps you scratch a few things off your gift list. Do you have any great foodie gift ideas you’d add to this list?
