18 sustainable and useful gifts for foodies!


For once, I don’t have a recipe for you today. I thought it would be nice to show you some gift ideas for foodies as Christmas is near. Especially I want to inspire you to choose sustainable gifts that benefit our environment. The gifts are perfect to make your loved ones happy. Above all, the gifts are suitable for cooking lovers, sustainability enthusiasts, and gourmets! 🙂

1. Reusable Straws

These metal straws are reusable and environmentally friendly. Additionally, you also get a cleaning brush. Practical for all Foodies who like to prepare tasty drinks or simply like to use straws!

2. Beeswax Food Wrap

There are so many pretty beeswax wraps. A great gift idea for all sustainability lovers because these reusable beeswax wraps can be used as a replacement for aluminum and plastic foil.

3. Bear Oven Mitts

Ok, guys, these are too cute aren´t they?! With these mittens, baking makes so much more fun and they are also a perfect gift for all foodies.

4. Bamboo Cutlery Set

This environmentally friendly bamboo cutlery set is the perfect gift for all travel lovers. In addition to this bamboo cutlery set, you also get a travel case. Really convenient! 🙂

5. Bento Box

How about a convenient Bento lunchbox? The box is available in different colors and is perfect for food-to-go!

6. Hydro Cell Water Bottle

I love my water bottle, not only to-go but also for home. This water bottle is stylish, handy and very practical.

7. Coconut Bowls with Spoons

Coconut bowls are not only incredibly stylish but also very practical to serve delicious dishes in. Each bowl is unique because each coconut is unique in shape, size, color, and grain. Therefore the coconut bowl is a really great gift.

8. Funny Apron – This is going to be delicious

This apron is very motivating to just make something and no matter what, it will be delicious! 😀 It is a funny and long-lasting gift.

9. Cutting Board Bamboo

This cutting board is environmentally friendly as it is made of bamboo. In addition, the cutting board is long-lasting and also very pretty. It is perfect as a decoration for all food photography lovers.

10. Dinnerware Set

I love this color so much! And this dinnerware is not only a great way to serve food, but it is also perfect for people who love to take food pictures. The dinnerware has also a beautiful pattern. It is also available in other colors.

11. Recipe Binder

This recipe binder is so beautifully designed and I think it is also a great gift idea for foodies! Each recipe can now be easily written in your own recipe book. So the recipes are no longer just scribbled on some yellow memos (and I’m talking about me ;-)).

12. French Press

A French Press is a great gift for all coffee lovers! This French Press not only looks good but is also practical and much cheaper than coffee machines. The French Press is available in different colors.

13. Mason Jars

Mason jars are super practical. On the one hand, you can make a nice gift out of them and the person can use the jar for a long time, e.g. to store food or to-go meals. These mason jars also look good on food photos, by the way!

14. Mini Rice Cooker

Who loves rice as much as I do?! This mini rice cooker is perfect for all rice lovers 😉 The rice cooker does not take up much space in the kitchen and is super handy because it is incredibly easy to prepare different types of rice with it. The rice cooker is also available in different colors. I personally like to buy appliances in mint :-)) I’m not a fan of the classic colors at all 😀

15. Bamboo Steamer

This bamboo steamer is ideal for all foodies who love to make international dishes. You can use it for example to prepare dim sum, dumplings and rice traditionally like in Asia. The steamer is also known for the gentle cooking of vegetables and rice.

16. Heart Shaped Waffle Maker

Who doesn’t love waffles?! There is nothing better than a delicious scent of waffles all over the house but not only that waffles (especially in heart shape) taste super delicious. That’s why a lot of foodies would be happy about a great waffle iron 🙂

17. Wooden Cooking Utensils

What about beautiful wooden cooking utensils? It´s the perfect gift for all foodies out there and they are durable.

18. Japanese Teapot

A traditional Japanese teapot is a wonderful gift for all tea lovers! The teapot has a beautiful pattern and keeps the tea warm for a long time because this teapot is made of cast iron.
