When you’re shopping for a foodie, giving the gift of cooking with a really great cookbook is pretty much one of the best presents you can get them. It’s like page after page of awesome food inspiration, celebration and ideas. Not sure what are some of the best cookbooks to give this year though? Here are five of the best cookbooks out there that we think make fabulous holiday gifts!

5 Best Cookbooks to Give This Holiday Season

1. The Chia Cookbook: Inventive, Delicious Recipes Featuring Nature’s Superfood. We’ve had the chance to feature a few healthy chia recipes from this book and have absolutely fallen in love with it. If you have a chia seed lover in your life, this is a fab gift for them. With recipes for everything from breakfast to soup to salad to dessert, it really is a celebration of all things ch-ch-ch-chia!
2. Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook: Eat Like You Give a F*ck. Shopping for a fit foodie with a crass sense of humor? This cookbook is sooo for them. Based on the popular blog, it has as many healthy recipes as curse words, which is pretty effing fantastic.
3. The Runner’s World Cookbook: 150 Ultimate Recipes for Fueling Up and Slimming Down — While Enjoying Every Bite. Kristen loves this cookbook and with good reason. With tons of recipes for the runner to help them fuel their training sessions and drop pounds, it’s giving the gift of good eats. And, Kristen swears that all gift recipients must make the mushroom tacos and the kale almond pesto. Must.
4. YumUniverse: Infinite Possibilities for a Gluten-Free, Plant-Powerful, Whole-Food Lifestyle. Need a gift for someone who doesn’t eat meat, dairy, gluten or soy? This gorgeous cookbook would be perfect for them as it features more than 150 craveable recipes that meet that criteria. We’re talking recipes for Fig & Caramelized Onion Tart and Chocolate & Salted Caramel Stack Cake. Heck, they may like it so much that they (hopefully) make some and share it with you!
5. Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans. I practically cooked an entire four-course meal from this cookbook, so I can personally attest that it’s one of my favorite and best cookbooks I’ve tried — EVER! Paleo or not, it’s just good eats.
