Holiday Christmas Gifts Red

Shopping for the foodies in your life can be fun--but challenging. Here are some great ideas to consider for your foodie family and friends.

Wine

Wines are always a nice gift, particularly during the holiday season with all the parties and not knowing who will stop by the house. Don’t hesitate to ask the employees at the wine shop if you have any questions about wines or pairings, that’s what they’re there for.

Cookbooks

Expand your foodies cooking libraries with the latest cookbooks. Many new books hit the culinary literary scene this year and there’s something for everyone: baseball lovers might enjoy  Diamond Dishes, political junkies might like Ron Paul’s cookbook and dinner party-throwers could enjoy Culinary Council Holiday Cookbook.

Bake Something

No one will appreciate a good cookie or moist cake more than a foodie. Baking can be a fun way to spend time with family and provides you a more personal gift.

Steaks

A great steak dinner or meat delivery subscription is a great option for the meat-lover in your life.  Companies such as Allen Brothers or Omaha Steaks provide a wide selection of meats to choose from and even offer other courses including  appetizers and desserts to complete the meal.
