11 Crunchy Foodie Gift Ideas
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…
Here is a list of foodie gift ideas that will make any Crunchy Foodie smile (you’re welcome):
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 Bodum Pour Over Coffee Maker 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?
