Hi lovely fofoodies! I’m working on the food section of the Fof gift guide and would love to hear your suggestions for gifts for fofoodies!
If you could give me suggestions under $50 and a sentence on why it’s a great gift I’d be so grateful. Links to products would help, too

    Best thing ever….very small hand held mixer…to use for example, when trying to blend Chai Tea in a mug with hot water….it is about 8″ to 11″ or so long…with a little circular wire ring that very quickly combines whatever drink you need mixed. It has an off and on switch….was a gift from my cleaning girl a few years ago…sorry but I do not have any idea where she bought it…it is unmarked as far as a brand. My little helper has unfortunately gone back to Brazil….

    This is a gift I have given on several occasions and it has been incredibly well-received. I get the most beautiful blank book I can find and hand-copy cherished recipes that fit the character and lifestyle of the recipient. Then present it with a few of the more uncommon ingredients from the recipes or a small utensil. In this cyber age, the handmade element is appreciated, as well as the thoughtfulness behind choosing the recipes. Hope that helps.

    Figi’s always has the most delightful petit fours in holiday colors, with custom icing greetings. They come in red velvet (my favorite!) and carrot cake, as well as the traditional layered cakes. Something you don’t buy for yourself but are wonderful for tea, unexpected guests, elegant dessert and buffet tables. A nice treat in a range from $20 up. http://www.figis.com/

    Hi Sara,
    I would make my grandma’s recipe; Bourbon Cake. It is very popular with the family and is one of the moistest cakes you’ll ever eat, not to mention delicious.
    Happy Eating and Gifting,

    Most of us already have shelves loaded with cookbooks but a great addition is Kate McMillan’s “Soup of the Day”–365 recipes for the most creative soups I’ve encountered. It’s from Williams Sonoma at about $35. I received it for my birthday last week and am ecstatic.

    • Sara Wald wrote on :

      Thanks Shirley! Do you have a favorite soup from the book?

    • Shirley Farley wrote on :

      Sara, I don’t have a good answer for that because my favorites tend to change from day to day. Right now I hate turkey soup, a week ago I loved it. …and spent all day Friday making stock from the turkey carcase. This week I long for something light and tangy. I’m drooling over the recipe for shrimp, spinach, and noodle soup. So far, everything I’ve tried from the book has been spectacular. Hope this helps.

    Experiences!!! Cooking Classes, Wine Tastings, Farm Tours etc..
    When finding a gift for family or better yet friends I like to think of an Experience that goes beyond “a gift” it includes time with you. I love to wrap up a bottle of homemade marinara sauce with a card that invites my friend to share a Pasta Making Class with me. Experiences are my favorite gifts to recieve and thank goodness my husband has my number :-).
