If you're like me, you haven't started your holiday shopping yet. At least, I hope you're like me... Otherwise, this Holiday Gift Guide will be of no use to you.

Should you still be looking for the perfect gift to give the favorite foodie in your life, then definitely consider the items I've compiled here. To make things easier, I've grouped them by price point.



Gifts Under $25


Holiday Gift Guide for Food Lovers | Under $25


1. OXO® Nonslip Bamboo Cutting Board | Crate&Barrel, $20 | 2. Letter Pressed Cookie Cutters | Perpetual Kid, $18 | 3. Chopstick Set | Crate&Barrel, $13 | 4. Lock Up Jars | Crate&Barrel, $0.75-$1.50 | 5. Bamboo Puzzle Party Platters | Patina, $17 | 6. New York Food Calendar 2012 | Amazon.com, $16

I am absolutely smitten with the Bamboo Puzzle Party Platters. You get two per set and they're multi-functional. Connect the puzzle pieces together to get one long serving platter or use the platters individually to carry your food and your wine. Much easier to enjoy the food this way rather than trying to eat while holding a glass of vino!

I received a review copy of Home Made by Yvette van Boven, and I'm already planning on spending a good portion of 2012 making my way through all of the recipes in the book. Stunning artwork, too!

Gifts $50-$100


Who wouldn't want to carry one of those Market Bags to the local farmers' market? (Tip: bring one bag with you and only buy what you can fit in the bag... you'll save money that way!)

Gifts Over $100
