I think there are two different type of foodies- those that enjoy food and those that enjoy making food. My dad falls into the first category. While he loves food, he typically doesn't spend hours making a meal. Though he does make some amazing Chili and meat (any kind) on the grill! Than there is my best friend, who will go out of her way to make the dinner extra special by preparing it for hours before hand. She enjoys the culinary arts.
Every year for special occasions I get my family Harry and David or Wolferman's gifts. Last year we also got my dad a special from Omaha Steaks. My dad absolutely raves about the gifts I get him. They are always delivered well before the event and packaged very nicely. My dad has never gotten any bruised fruit or freezer burned meat!
For those that enjoy making food and are into the culinary arts, a blender or other gadget would be the perfect gift. If you are on a budget a cookbook is always in good order. A cook can never have too many recipes!
A fun gift too for those that love going on picnics, a picnic basket set is just the thing that will make them smile. Picnic basket available via pottery barn.
Do you have a foodie in the family? If so, what do you like to get them for the holidays?
