Of course we had to put together an extra-special round-up of much-loved gifts for foodies. We are both, after all pretty passionate about making food that tastes great (from scratch is the only way)!
So what do you get the foodie on your list, or what do you want to ask for this year?
Let’s get you started with our round-up PLUS amazing giveaways. Read on for our favorite gift ideas for foodies!
Holiday Gift Guide – Holiday Gift Ideas for Foodies
Breville – The Handy Mix Scraper
Some days you just don’t feel like hauling out your big stand mixer– and this kitchen gadget is the perfect solution! Heaven knows, we’re all in need of an upgrade on our hand mixers, which have been through a lot of cookie batters. Why not upgrade it to a hand mixer that has all the bells and whistles? The Handy Mix Scraper from Breville has Beater IQ – which is pretty cool. It knows which beaters you’re using and adjusts the ratio to suit what you’re mixing, has 9 speeds so you can get the perfect power for what your mixing, has a timer so there’s no need to use your iphone clock and it even has a light (!) so you can keep a close eye on what your mixing and know the exact moment when your meringues have gone from perfect peaks to over whipped. One of our contributors facebook messaged us recently and said “Have you tried the Breville Handy Mix Scraper before? It’s so freaking awesome! Who knew a mixer could be so cool!” We have to agree with her. Nana’s mixer just got an upgrade!

There is something about consuming a beverage with a straw. Not
only is it better for your teeth, it also makes your drink feel
fancier! We’re big on trying to reduce our carbon footprint as
much as possible, and glass straws are a great way to do that.
We love supporting local artists and we discovered glass straws
from Glass Sippers at Circle Craft Christmas Market! Their straws
are available with fun designs so that each member of your family
can have their own straw that is easily identifiable, and also comes
in a range of sizes for every beverage type. The straws are
dishwashersafe and have a lifetime breakage warranty, so if it
breaks, they’ll replace it (these babies are strong though! They
stood up to our 3 year old!)

reader 2 floral glass drinking straws with cleaning brush.
You know how frustrating plastic wrap is. And it’s not that
great for the environment. So we are happy
that there is another alternative to food storage.
Abeego is a beeswax wrap that you can fit over
food to keep it fresh. What an excellent alternative
to plastic wrap for storing real food, the natural way.
Abeego comes in a variety of sizes so it’s easy to find
the perfect size for whatever you’re needing to wrap. Wash
your wrap with a bit of cool water and biodegradable soap
and you’re all set to use it again! Because of the natural
antibacterial properties of bees wax these wraps are food
safe AND good for the environment!The makers just want to
change the way people store food. We can get behind that!
Love My Local
The only thing more impressive than a cheese plate at
your next party, is this amazing board to display
We fell in love with these boards when
we first spied them at a local gift shop. And
we think you’ll love them too. They are cut into
the shapes of the Canadian provinces. Find
your favourite, or pick where you live.

Cookbooks We Love
This is in no way an exhaustive list of the
cookbooks we love (or do you have all day)!
Crystal has been getting her culinary nutrition
expert certification from The Academy of Culinary
Nutrition and if you’ve seen some of the amazing
food photos in her instagram feed lately chances are they
come from Meghan Telpner’s Undiet cookbook! We
love putting fresh, healthy, homemade, heart-made
food into our families tummies, that will fuel them
throughout the day and having great cookbooks on hand
for inspiration is vital for that creative process.
Here are a few other cookbooks we’re crushing on:
-Oh She Glows by Angela Liddon
-Salad Love: 260 Crunchy, Savory and Filling Meals
You Can Make Everyday by David Bez
-My New Roots: Inspired Plant-Based Recipes for
Every Season by Sarah Britton
-Rawlicious At Home: More Than 100 Raw, Vegan
and Gluten-Free Recipes To Make You Feel Great
by Angus Crawford and Chelsea Clark
Find these books at your local independent bookstore
or at Indigo.ca or Amazon.com
The Missing Ingredient from Well Seasoned
You know what it was like when you were a kid
and got a piece of mail delivered to you? That feeling
of excitement really doesn’t wear off in adulthood (except
if it’s a bill). Now imagine if you got a box of delicious
ingredients mailed to you each month! That is exactly what
you get with a The Missing Ingredient subscription.
Delivered monthly, each box is filled with gourmet ingredients
handpicked by a culinary expert. They also come with a featured
recipe card that will get you started on your culinary adventure.
We’re pretty sure you’ll love this concept (and that you’ll make
such great creations).
Evolve Cellars Rosé
Nothing goes better with a delicious meal than a glass
of a favourite wine. And once you try the wine from Evolve
Cellars of Summerland BC, you’ll have a new favourite on
your list. Who doesn’t love a good rosé? Really,
we haven’t met her yet!
We just know our foodie friends will love this pick.
Salton S’mores Maker
Imagine if you could have S’Mores all year long, no camp
fire required! Sound like you should be waking up from this
dream? We know! But Salton makes our new favourite
kitchen gadget – the S’Mores Maker. Perfect for the
foodie who has everything (and appreciates marshmallow-y
Karen here: There are many reasons
I envy Crystal, one of which is her Blendtec blender ;)
This high- powered blender that can pulverize pretty
much anything (!) is a must for serious smoothie,
soup, nut milk making (and more).
So if you know me, then yes I’ll take a Blendtec
for Christmas :).
PS. Crystal here: The Blendtec really is the best. I use
it daily and it has stood up to every test I put it to.
Blendtec has some of the best customer service around,
and their Will It Blend videos are HILARIOUS.
Oh, and Karen… she’s pretty enviable herself. ;)
