10 Things to Consider When Buying a Gift for Kitchen & Foodies

Shopping for a gift for the foodie in your life? Make sure you keep these 10 things in mind while you shop!

1. What do they cook

If this foodie friend loves to bake, getting them a portable grill might not be the best gift option.

2. Consider their skill level

The worst mistake you can make is to accidentally insult someone by getting them a gift or a book that insinuates they aren’t skilled in the kitchen. Don’t get a beginner’s book for an expert!

3. Give an experience

A gift doesn’t have to be a physical item. Consider a cooking class or, for someone very special, a trip to a location with cuisine they love to eat or cook.

4. Try it yourself

If this foodie is always cooking for you, why not combine your gift with a meal that you cook instead! Even if it doesn’t turn out excellent, they will appreciate the effort.

5. Upgrade their items

If you know this person has a certain item, you know they need it. Why not get them an upgraded version? Whether it be a nicer set of pots and pans, a sharper knife set, or something similar, you know the item will be used and appreciated.

6. Get something unique

There are so many tech inventions related to meals, why not consider something totally unique that isn’t practical. That is what gifts are for! Be sure to spend time using the gift too so they really feel special and that the gift isn’t just a joke.

7. Make their life easier

Cooking can be very time consuming. Why not consider a gift that makes a typically exhausting task, easier? A stand mixer instead of a hand mixer, for example.

8. Cookbooks are great

Gone are the days of basic cookbooks, there are so many options out there now for just about any type of cuisine, meal, even ingredient! This will give the foodie so many new things to try, they will love using the gift for years to come.

9. Try something new

Foodies tend to be pretty adventurous and will try anything once, so fuel that adventurous side and make them try to eat or cook something they never have before!

10. Help them entertain

Cooking and entertaining tend to go hand in hand. Why not get this foodie a gift they can use to help make their next dinner party even better than they already are!

Foodie Meaning: What Classifies a Person as a Foodie?

This term has come up the last few years and now plenty of people self proclaim themselves as foodies. But what does the term actually mean? What does it take to actually be considered a foodie?

Foodie: The Origin

Before we get to the meaning and classification, let’s start at the beginning. Where did the word foodie even come from? Surprisingly, the word is older than you might think! No, it didn’t come up in the last few years, it first appeared back in 1980! It’s first appearance is said to be in a New York Magazine article written by Gael Greene, a food critic. It next appeared in a big way just a few years later in the title of a book: The Official Foodie Handbook, written by Paul Levy and Ann Barr in 1984.

While the word first came around in the ‘80s, it has gained a lot of popularity the last few years. For some, it is annoying to have the word tossed around casually, because a true foodie is so much more than just someone who enjoys going out to restaurants and eating.

Foodie: The True Definition

Now that we know where the word comes from, it’s important to understand the actual definition. What does foodie mean? Is it just someone who enjoys food? Not really - we’d all be foodies then! Instead, we headed to the dictionary to find the actual definition, and it lists a foodie as someone “who has an ardent or refined interest in food and who eats food not out of hunger but due to their interest or hobby.”

Foodie: Classification

Now that we have the origin of the word, and a good definition, it’s time to decide who actually qualifies as a foodie.

You can easily recommend local restaurants

If you eat at chain restaurants, you aren’t a foodie (sorry). That isn’t to say that all chain restaurants are bad, but rather, that a true foodie looks beyond the obvious chains and seeks out local eateries and is well versed in what they have to offer.

You know where the food comes from

No, we don’t mean back in the kitchen! Foodies care to understand about every aspect of the food they are eating, including where the ingredients come from.

You understand various cooking styles

Knowing various preparation techniques or cooking styles is part of being a true foodie. You don’t need to ask the waiter any questions - you’ve already got all the answers!

You can cook incredibly well

Not only do you know all the best local spots in town, you can get in the kitchen yourself and prepare a delicious meal for friends and family! Your years of experience learning about cooking styles, ingredients, and more has transferred to your ability to create dishes yourself.

You don’t always need a recipe

A true foodie understands what goes into food, instead of just following step by step in a recipe. Recipes certainly inspire you, but you can also create your own with ease.
