We’ve curated an awesome selection of foodie gifts (at every price point!) for the health conscious people in your life.
Buying gifts can be a stressful experience, especially during the holidays. If you’ve got someone on your list who loves food and nutrition, you’re in luck! From food baskets to subscription services, these foodie gifts will be well received!
The Healthy Foodie Gift List
- Food Magazine Subscription
Foodies love reading about food. Find out which food magazine your foodie hasn’t signed up for, then get them a subscription. If the paper version isn’t what they’re into, get them an online subscription.
- Kitchen Tools
Most healthy foodies have kitchen tools, but would probably love some new ones. Find some pretty wooden spoons, spatulas, whisks, and measuring utensils to wrap up and give this holiday season.
- Whole Grains Basket
Does your foodie friend love to cook and bake? Why not fill a gift basket full of whole grains and whole grain flours for them to try? Include some recipes for more personalization, and I’ll bet you’ll be invited over to try one of their creations!
- Smoothie Kit
Smoothies are an awesome way to make for a more nourishing day. If you know your foodie loves them, why not create a kit to make things more fun? Include a smoothie cookbook, or smoothie recipes along with a fun blender spatula, a beautiful glass for drinking, and an eco-friendly, reusable straw. You could also pack a bunch of ‘add-in’s’–think chia seeds, ground flax seed, hemp seeds, freeze-dried fruit, etc.
This trend is here to stay. If your healthy foodie doesn’t own a spiralizer yet, now is the time! Most are easy to use and they can be a lot of fun for the whole family!
- CSA Subscription
Give the gift that supports local farmers! Your friend or family member will love that they are supporting local businesses while enjoying and trying new foods straight from local farmers!
- Gift Card for a Nutrition-Focused Restaurant
Everyone likes to dine at restaurants! Find a healthy one that focuses on delicious food, and treat your foodie to dinner.
- Fruit Basket
It’s traditional, it’s “old-school,” but your foodie will love this thoughtful gift. Make your own version filled with their favorites, or find an online service that delivers.

A cheeseboard is a beautiful gift that can serve anything! Seal the deal on this present by adding artisan cheese from a local cheese shop.

Canning jars pull their weight in so many ways, especially if you get a set with tags. They’re great for storage, drinking, and as fun countertop decorations!
