Let me add my voice to the masses: Can you believe it’s the holiday season again?
As someone who loves giving gifts and finding unique items for friends/family, I love this time of year. So today we’re focusing on the literary foodie: a person who loves to keep up with the latest releases and food trends in equal measure.
Let’s face it: Your pal is used to receiving cookbooks. That’s not fun. That’s not original. This list is full of items specifically for serving, entertaining, or kitchen decor for the literary foodie in your life. We’ve also seen a lot of mugs, wine glasses, etc., so for this list I tried to include an array of unique items that would be a welcome addition to anyone’s kitchen. The quotes or book titles included in these products skew largely toward classics, but a handful of these items are also able to be customized with the book or saying of your choice. Products with customization options will be noted!
Whether you’re looking for a host/ess gift, a holiday gift, or a “just because” gift — these items will be sure to please.
