The best part about holiday shopping for your foodie friends is that you know what they’re into. (Uhh, food.) But that can also make it tricky if you’re not super familiar with exactly what they like.
And so, for this year’s Fit Bottomed Eats gift guide, we’re sharing a few products and services we seriously love (in many cases, so much so that we’re affiliates!). The fact that we dig something doesn’t necessarily mean your peeps will agree … but we think it’s a good bet. And, of course, if you’re looking for other ideas and wanna know more about what we’re liking around these parts, you can check out our reviews — because beautiful cookbooks are always a thoughtful gift!
A Super Cute Grocery Getter
We all go grocery shopping. And we all make the best choices we can … although, the results are healthier on some days than on others. This cute tote from Emily McDowell Studio ($20 — and also, this is where we also got our favorite mug) pokes a little fun at the way many of us rationalize some of the treats we take home from the supermarket — and is sure to make your healthy foodie friends smile.
Meal Planning Assistance
Shopping for someone who’s working hard on their meal-planning game, but looking for ways to make it a little easier? We’re rather biased, admittedly, but we think the Meals For Results software we’re offering (in partnership with Dave Smith of Make Your Body Work) is freaking fantastic. An annual membership is $197 and includes access to hundreds of healthy recipes (which you can sort based on preference or restrictions) along with the ability to easily map out and plan the exact foods you wanna make and eat.
We’re huge fans of the idea of giving a gift that keeps on giving, and if somebody on your nice list has a true love of a specific type of food, well, seems like a perfect fit! We think Butcher Box is fantastic for meat lovers (like Jenn!) who care about their meat being raised humanely with no antibiotics or hormones. (They also offer non-subscription gift boxes if you just want to give a one-time meat treat.)
A Fun Top
Who doesn’t love a cheeky tee? We’re sure those people exist — but we don’t tend to be friends with them. And that’s why funny, food-centric tanks and tees are so perfect! We’re a little partial to the Oh Snap tee ($22) at Bad Pickle Tees (we’ll give you two guesses as to why, but you’ll only need one), but there are loads of options for all kinds of food fans.
A Little Something Silly
Okay, so you ended up as the Secret Santa for that one friend who has everything. What do you do? Well, we’re not normally ones to recommend single-use products for the kitchen, but when you find something really funny and it falls in line with what the recipient honestly loves … well, in that case, we’d be remiss if we didn’t point you directly toward this Tricerataco Holder ($12). We think it’s ridiculous, of course … and yet, we really, really want a set of four.
What’s your shopping style? Do you work really hard to find the world’s most perfect gift, or do you aim to find something that’ll make the recipient smile and call it a day? —Kristen
