The Fond of You Foodie

ae-gift-guide-nicole

You know the lady you love is a foodie when every trip is planned around dinner reservations. At the table, she takes more pictures of her meal than of you. Then she shares the exact combination of spices the chef used in her dish, while discussing where you will be eating tomorrow. If this sounds like your partner in life than here are a few suggestions for the holidays.

1. Sweet Syrups. This stocking stuffer is a great treat for your coffee loving lass. It is delicious in ice cold milk, but even better drizzled over vanilla bean ice cream. Also it allows for you to write something corny in a card like “A sweet for my sweetie.” That will definitely score points towards holiday time fun. ($21)

2. Food Art. These colorful food prints are the work of graphic designer Christopher Dina. Affordable and adorable, they are a perfect addition to any kitchen or work space. But please order ahead of time and lay out the cash to get it nicely framed. There is no woman out there that wants to be handed a rolled up poster as a gift. ($18-$22 plus cost of framing)

3. Cheese Pairing. Let’s face it. If your significant other doesn’t like cheese and beer than its time to call it quits. And bonus for you, no gift required. But if she is down with Gruyere paired with a cold frosty brew than the Murray’s Beer Collection is the perfect gift. Make sure to check out all the other tasty options available in the cheese and charcuterie collections. ($59.99)

4. Culinary Science. Gifting this kit will cause the most fun you can have in the kitchen with your clothes on. Combining cooking and science will bring delight to any foodies day. The only drawback is you will have to sit through lots of small deconstructed meals. If just the thought of this makes you roll your eyes, then I recommend going with one of my other suggestions. ($58.95)

5. Holiday Feast. Can’t cook but want to impress your foodie? Than hit up William Sonoma and order the Holiday Dinner. This delicious feast comes with a fresh Free-Range Turkey, Artichoke Parmesan Stuffing, Loaded Mashed Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Pumpkin Pie and Pecan Streusel. It’s your choice if you want to fess up that you ordered it online or keep it as your little secret. ($299.95)
