Best Food Gifts For Everyone Who Loves To Eat

Updated by Jordan White

Virginia Wolf once said, “ One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” We agree. Food isn’t just for survival. Sure, it tastes good, but it can teach you about different cultures, bring people together, and even improve your health. It’s no wonder so many of us call ourselves “foodies.” Food plays many different roles in our lives. But did you know it can also be a gift? Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, graduation, or anniversary, we recommend a food gift.

What Is A Good Food To Gift?

When we say “food gift,” we’re not referring to an In-N-Out Burger gift card (but that’s always an option). We’re talking about food-minded gifts, like a DIY cocktail kit or a monthly box of homemade cookies. Yum!

And while you can always mail food yourself, it does come with some risks. For one, there’s a chance it’ll get damaged en route. There’s also a chance the food will go bad, spoiling the gift altogether. Because of that, we recommend sending a curated food gift that’s shipped and delivered by experts. And luckily, we’ve curated a list of food gifts worth checking out:

The Cookie of the Month by Little Red Kitchen Bake Shop is ideal for anyone with a sweet tooth. Each month, you’ll receive a surprise box curated by the baker. One month could be a dozen chocolate chip cookies, and the next, a pie!

Do you know someone who’s a lover of cocktails? The Shaker & Spoon Cocktail Club might be the perfect gift. This monthly cocktail box includes three recipes and everything you need to make at least four drinks (for each recipe).

The Global Kitchen Inspiration Box is another great food gift. Each box focuses on a different cuisine, highlighting recipes worldwide. In it, you’ll have the ingredients needed to create something yummy. The supplier also donates part of the cost of each box to a charity, so you can feel good about indulging those taste buds.

Everyone loves food, and that’s why it’s the perfect gift. Check out even more unique food gifts on Cratejoy.
