Below is a list of gift ideas for foodies and homebodies. Many of the gifts would work as a gift for couples, too!
Huckleberry Cookbook, $35
Best known for its healthy and delicious breakfasts, Santa Monica’s Huckleberry Bakery & Cafe is committed to using local and natural ingredients. And all that goodness is now in a cookbook! Perfect for a friend who loves to be in the kitchen.
Initial Cutting Board, $50
Treat a foodie friend to a new cutting board, customized with her initial. If this is for a couple (or better yet, newlyweds!), just use their last initial for a special personalized gift for their home.
Lexi Candle Tin, $20
These beautiful candles come in four seasonal scents that make a home feel warm and inviting. I personally recommend the “snow on cedar” one—it smells amazing.
Brass Desk Clip, $10-$14
For the friend who works at home, these desk clips are beautiful and functional and will look so lovely on her desk!
Les Femmes 2015 Calendar, $26
Every home needs a calendar—why not a chic one? I love this beautiful one from Rifle Paper Co.—perfect for a stylish friend!
Ombre Throw, $39
For the friend who loves to snuggle up on the couch, add a good book or movie for a super cozy gift.
Party On Bottle Opener, $25
Throw in a six-pack of your friend’s favorite beer so she can start using her gift right away :)
Kati Ramer Cocktails Print, from $16
Um…how cute are these?!? Perfect for a friend who has a sweet bar area in her house—or just anyone who loves a good cocktail.
Make It Ahead Cookbook, $24.50
This cookbook by my favorite chef—Ina Garten—is great for anyone who loves to entertain.
Kinfolk Magazine Subscription, $60
Kinfolk is a slow lifestyle magazine that explores ways for readers to simplify their lives, cultivate community and spend more time with their friends and family. If a subscription is a bit pricey for your budget, a single issue would make an equally lovely gift!
Bodum Gold French Press, $39.95
Beautiful and functional, this gold (or silver!) French press makes 8-cups of coffee. Add in a bag of your friend’s favorite coffee beans for an extra touch of awesome.
Lindsay Letters Fraser Fir, Fig. 3, $20-$65
Available as an 8×10 print or 8×10 framed canvas, this is one of my favorite pieces in Lindsay’s holiday collection this year and would make a beautiful gift for someone who is endlessly decorating and perfecting her home.
Jeni’s Ice Cream, $12/pint
With flavors like sweet potato with torched marshmallows and sweet corn and black raspberries, this is a gift any foodie friend with a sweet tooth with love you forever for. If you’re feeling really fancy, send one of the collections.
