Things to Consider When Buying Gifts For Foodies
When buying gifts for foodies, there are a few details you should probably consider. Some are more important than others – but definitely think about all of them before you make your purchase!
Price. When buying gifts for foodies, price is definitely going to dictate what you buy. For example, you can get some really fancy varieties of foods if you are willing to pay a higher price. Chocolate is a good example of this. Price is also (usually) tied to the quality of materials in something like a cutting or cheeseboard.
If you are looking for a non-food item and opting to get a food accessory, then a more expensive cheeseboard made from a better wood with a better finish is likely going to last longer than a cheap one. In the end, have a think about your budget, think about the receiver and their foodie loves, and you can’t go wrong.
Purpose/Taste. The purpose of the foodie gift is related to the person receiving the gift. Really give a think about if they are going to eat the gift or use the gift. If you find a great bag of candied popcorn but they are really into smoked meats, maybe rethink your gift choice and buy something else.
If they genuinely need a new funny mug to enjoy their morning beverage, then buy them a mug. That would be useful! There are SO many ideas out there for foodie gifts, we understand if you are having a hard time.
Allergies. If you are buying gifts for foodies that are actually food-based, you will definitely want to check for any allergies or intolerances. Seems like an obvious one, but buying a gift that can trigger an allergy (or even a food sensitivity) can be wasteful and flat-out dangerous. Always read the ingredients or ask the vendor/seller. If you are unsure, don’t chance it!
Cheap Gifts for Foodies
If you are in the market for cheap gifts for foodies, then you will have WAY too many options to choose from. A great idea is to know your foodie’s likes and tastes and then buy a “variety pack” of a bunch of smaller gifts to create one larger themed gift. That is to say that you want to buy many little gifts. If you only need one smaller, cheaper gift for a foodie, then you’ve got options below!

Mid-Range Gifts for Foodies
There are a TON of ideas out there for mid-range foodie gifts. These are the kinds of gifts that you can give again and again if they get used up/eaten (like a food item). That said, generally they are more expensive food item that get used over a longer amount of time (like olive oil). It never goes out of style if it’s used and loved by your foodie.
The other category for these mid-range gifts are a food accessory or tool like an ice cream maker (see below). These novelty gifts are not crazy expensive but also have a huge novelty value IF the person will use it!
