Three Fantastic Edible Gift Ideas for the Food Lover in Your Life

 Three Fantastic Edible Gift Ideas for the Food Lover in Your Life

Are you trying to find the perfect gift for someone in your life? If that person is a bonafide foodie, then look no further. Food lovers are great people to buy for because there are always new kitchen gadgets, cookbooks, and interesting restaurants to try. Of course, the challenge is always making sure that you get something that your loved one doesn't already have. The best way to avoid this gifting faux pas is to give something that you know he or she will use: food! Of course, the best gift for a foodie is actual food because you know that it is something that will be both used and appreciated. Of course, this doesn't mean that you have to go out to dinner. There are a number of edible gifts available for food lovers. Read on for some ideas to get your creative gifting juices flowing.

Food Subscriptions

Subscription boxes are very popular at the moment. If you want to truly give the gift that keeps on giving, consider signing your friend or family member up for a food-themed subscription box. You can find one for anyone, including a hot sauce of the month box, wines, cheeses, and sweets. This unique gift will let your loved one know how much you appreciate them throughout the year.

Gift Baskets Filled with Edible Treats

Another fun, edible gift idea for a food lover is a gift basket that includes all of his or her favorite edible treats. You can make your own basket and include everything you know your friend will love or have a basket custom made by a variety of online companies who specialize in these types of gifts. Harry and David are well-known for their fruit gift baskets, for example.

Send His or Her Favorite Meat

For those who want to get a truly fabulous gift for the food lover in their life, consider ordering your loved one a piece of his or her favorite meat. A number of companies specialize in shipping meats throughout the U.S. You can choose from high-quality cuts of steak or prime rib. Companies such as Francesca's Favorites also offer premium seafood packages and gift baskets for the seafood lover in your life.

Thankful Thursday on Friday

 I know it's been a while since I've posted!  Everything was just becoming tedious to do with only one hand.  Then, I had my three week appointment on Monday this week.  The doctors told me that my hand isn't healing and started throwing words like "Vitamin D levels" and "osteoporosis" around.  So, it's taken me a couple days to get my mind wrapped around the fact that I'm not healing, or at least healing slower than they'd like. 

Even with all of that, there are always still things to be thankful for.  Here's my list for this week:

  1. I'm happy that my son seems to love playing the trombone.  They had a choice of either choir or band.  And he didn't want to sing in front of people.  They decided he would be best suited for trombone.  I'm just happy he likes it and that he doesn't mind practicing.  I believe everyone has an instrument that they would be good at and enjoy.  For example, I took piano and would be good at it.  If I practiced.  I didn't like practicing.  When I began to play the baritone ukelele, I loved practicing and I was awesome at it.  I was an awesome picker.  I wish I would have not given it up.
  2. I'm happy that Future Fashionista is better controlling her breathing during gym and on the soccer field.   After we tried that inhaler for one week before any activity, we haven't had to use it since.
  3. I'm thankful that hubby still likes both of his new jobs.
  4. I'm thankful that I started working out again this week and that my friend and I are going to get to go for a walk today.
  5. I'm thankful for friends who help out.
  6. Thankful that my kids are doing well in school even though our normal "routine"at home has been disrupted. 
I'm sure there are many, many more things, but I'll have to list those later.  I hope that you can find many things to be thankful for today.
