Traditional gift giving isn’t exactly my love language. I’m more of a quality time kind of girl, so sometimes buying gifts can seem a bit overwhelming. And when someone asks what I want for Christmas, half the items on the list are more practical. However, gift giving is still fun for me, and especially when I’ve got an idea I love for someone. So, if you are looking for Christmas gift ideas for a healthy foodie..whether that be family member, friend, or yourself, here are some ideas to help get you started!
12 Christmas Gift Ideas for the Healthy Foodie
1. Immersion blender
This Cuisinart blender stick is super handy! No longer do I have to worry about transferring hot soup to the blender. I can simply blend directly in my Instant Pot or slow cooker. And the clean up is much simpler than having a whole dirty blender pitcher.
2. Instant Pot
The Instant Pot was all the rage last Black Friday. I’m guessing it’ll be a huge Christmas item again this year, and I have to say I can see why. I’m notorious for forgetting to get my crock pot going in time or running out of time as I’m leaving in the morning to put it on. Not to mention, the Instant Pot can be used as a slower cooker so if someone really wanted to take a plunge into minimalism they could actually replace their slow cooker with it. I haven’t done this yet, but I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before my minimalist husband suggests it.
3. Norwex Kitchen Cloths
These Norwex Kitchen Cloths are hands down my favorite Norwex item. If you aren’t familiar with Norwex, their cloths are made with a really high quality microfiber and infused with silver (an antibacterial agent), which allows you to completely sanitize your sinks, countertops, fridge, and more using only water and no harmful chemicals. I use all of their products to clean my home, but the kitchen cloths are my favorite because I use them daily. (Disclaimer: My mom sells Norwex and that’s her link. However, I fell in love with Norwex before she became a consultant. For that matter, so did she, so much so that she now gets to share it with others! As with any affiliate link, I never share anything I don’t personally have or believe in.)
4. New Wood Cutting Board
There are so many fun cutting boards to choose from. You can get them locally made in different shapes including states or different cuts of wood. However, they are also easy to find at most department stores and Amazon as well.
5. Glass Salad Dressing Mixing Bottle
This Kolder salad dressing bottle is really handy to quickly mix up homemade salad dressings. Plus, with a low price point it makes for a perfect stocking stuffer!
6. Meal Subscription Box
Buy your foodie a week of groceries via a meal subscription box! There are quite a few companies out there who specialize in this and some of them have fairly healthy offerings. Check out my review of Hello Fresh to get a taste of how these services work.
7. Fun Apron
What makes cooking more fun than a fun apron? I have quite a few different aprons that I’ve received as gifts and enjoy wearing them (when I remember). Not to mention, keeping your clothes clean is always a plus.
8. Tea kettle
So I don’t have one yet, but this electric tea kettle is on my Christmas wish list this year. I’ve been wanting one for quite a while, and when I saw my best friend use hers a few weeks ago I decided I’m not going to wait much longer to make this purchase! I love all the different designs they come in, but I’m especially loving the Aztec print! You could also gift an assortment of delicious teas to go along with it.
9. Silicone Cupcake Liners
Another stocking stuffer idea: These silicone cupcake liners are perfect for baking egg cups, muffins, and cupcakes (of course). I have a set similar to this one.
10. Dark Chocolate Bar
Perfect stocking stuffer that is sure to be appreciated! Shoot for 85% dark chocolate to reap the most antioxidant benefits.
11. High Quality Blender
I currently use a Kitchenaid blender which has been going 7.5 years strong. However, one day I plan to upgrade to the Vitamix. I use my parents when I’m at their house and love it. If you’re looking for a smaller (less expensive) blender gift idea, I also love the Nutribullet though I have to say mine did bite the dust (after about 2+ years of daily use.) I do think it’s still worth it, especially considering the price you pay for them and the convenience. Not to mention, Nutribullet also has a couple upgraded models that are more durable and could withstand daily heavy use more easily.
12. Cookbooks or Cooking Magazine Subscription
Eating Well is a magazine I’ve taken on and off throughout the years and certainly enjoy. It has a really good variety of healthier recipes to choose from.
Recently, my favorite cookbooks for basics with eating “real food” are Lisa Leake’s cookbooks: 100 Days of Real Food: How We Did It, What We Learned, and 100 Easy Wholesome Recipes and her second cookbook, 100 Days of Real Food: Fast & Fabulous. I especially love the homemade granola, onion dip, and whole wheat banana pancakes in these books.
Bonus (For the Fit Foodie?): Bowflex Dumbells
If you have a healthy foodie on your list then there is a good chance they also love to exercise. If you’re looking for a big ticket item, these bowflex dumbbells easily classify as one of our favorite purchases ever. Casey and I both get constant use out of them and they save us a ton of money on gym memberships. I simply can’t rave about our dumbbells enough.
