Most of us will know someone who is obsessed with food. Whether they love to cook, enjoy going out for meals and ordering takeaways, or have a deep love for homemade food, getting a foodie a food orientated present is the perfect gift idea. A great way to treat your foodie friend or family member in a thoughtful manner is to make them a DIY gift. As well as presenting them with something they love, you will be able to show that you have put a lot of effort into it. For some inspiration, here are 5 DIY gifts for your foodie friends and family.
Decorating a food or drink product that you can purchase online or in a store will make a simple gift more appreciated. For example, if you know that your father loves a certain beer, but you feel like it is too simple for a Christmas gift, then you can decorate the bottles to make them look like reindeers. Another example is to purchase plain baked goods from a store and decorate them for the event.
Nothing shows more effort or thought than a personalised baked product, especially if it is in the form of their favourite homemade treat. When you make homemade food, you will be able to adjust it and make it unique, in order to satisfy your foodie friend or family member. If baking isn’t your strong point or you struggle for time, then you can find ready-made personalised food and drink gifts online.
Making your own cookbook can be a long process, but it is a fantastic gift idea for people who love your cooking and other homemade items. You can create the book using a combination of your own recipes, recipes of their favourite food and family/friend creations, such as nana’s homemade apple pie. This can be a great gift for any occasion, especially for those that are moving away from home.
Handmade candles may seem like an unusual gift for a foodie. However, if you manage to harness the smell of their favourite dessert, sweet or beverage in it, it suddenly makes sense. The smell of fresh pancakes and baked cookies can’t fill the home 24/7, but it can be made a reality with handmade scented candles. The limits are endless with a handmade candle and they can be extremely personal.
If cooking and crafts aren’t something you are good at, then you should consider getting your food loving loved one a meaningful food related voucher. This could be in the form of a gift card for their favourite restaurant or Uber Eats. You can buy one at www.giftsvouchers.co.uk. If they prefer to cook and bake, then you could get them a voucher for a cooking class, or to watch a popular/famous cooking show. This may seem simple, but it is a very thoughtful idea.
It can be hard to find the perfect gift during birthdays, Christmas and other special events. However, finding something that will be used and appreciated by the receiver will make your effort worthwhile.
