Melissa's Cuisine: Gift Ideas for the Foodie in Your Life

Gift Ideas for the Foodie in Your Life

It's hard to believe that we are less than a month away from Christmas!  We have our first Christmas party (a cookie exchange) in about 2 weeks, and our first family Christmas party a couple days later.  The Holiday season is in full swing!

Have you started Christmas shopping yet?  I'm about halfway done. I have both of our mothers done--they were the easy ones this year!  My dad is done--Mike's not so much.  Anyone have ideas for the man who has everything and needs nothing?  I'm about halfway through shopping for Mike, but I have enough ideas for him for this year and next!

I thought I'd put together a list of gift ideas that I would love to receive.  Actually the majority of these items I have and love, so I know I can recommend them to you!  These items would be perfect for the foodies in your life.  I'll also include some ideas for people who may not spend as much time in the kitchen, as well as the men in your life.  Here are some things that caught my eye:

  3. Some similar ideas to my list: http://ngnrdgrl.wordpress.com/2012/11/23/ngnrdgrl-gift-guide/

    I recommend keeping an eye on woot, especially for the kitchen products. I've seen most of those items for dirt cheap off of woot. Last year I tried to get that grill off of woot for like $30 (normally its around $100!!!). I shipped it to my home address and it got stolen off my porch. Luckily woot fully reimbursed me for the product. It was still sad, as it meant I had to find a new pressie for my sister in law, but I like what I ended up getting her just as well.
