Food Gifts for Women
For better or worse, women are constantly receiving kitchen-related gifts. But if you have a woman in your life who loves to cook, we’ve got you covered! But since you know she’s got it all already, you’ll have to think a little outside the box in order to find her something she doesn’t already have. That’s where this list comes in.
She’s probably already gotten a dozen baking-related gifts. But this one? It’s chef quality. I mean, it’s not even a gift basket. It’s a gift crate, and I think that says everything about how seriously you can take it.
It’s got two Williams-Sonoma Goldtouch Quarter Sheet Pans, a Silpat Quarter-Sheet Liner specifically designed for the delicate creations of French patisseries, cookie cutters and a fantastic decorating gun with interchangeable tips. And, of course, the crate is reusable.
Help her step up her pastry game with this great set that might even get you a batch of cookies as a thank you.
Fun socks aren’t just for guys to show off their personalities! Get any fast food-loving woman these two pairs of adorable socks featuring a cheeseburger and cows drinking a milkshakes. (I guess even cows need something sweet every once in a while!) One size fits most women’s shoe sizes—5.5 to 9.5.
The gift box these socks come is ADORABLE and made to look like a classic to go container for a burger. Pick these up for a stocking stuffer or for coworker you drew for Secret Santa. As long as you know she eats meat, this is a cute and cozy bet.
Who has been telling you that women don’t like drinking and brewing beer? We do! Help a beloved woman learn to brew IPA at home with this great kit. The one-gallon kit comes with citrusy Cascade hops, as well as smooth malt—the foundations of any good IPA.
Better yet, all the equipment in the kit is reusable, so she can continue experimenting with making her own beer for years to come! It also doubles as equipment for making cider or sparkling wine, too, so the sky really is the limit. As long as she can spend a few hours setting it up, then patiently wait a few weeks to drink it, she’ll love this.
Sure, OK, every cook has (most of) these utensils already in their kitchen. But does every cook have four tools that match the stoneware crock that holds them when they’re not in use? No.
Make sure that you’re grabbing a set that matches either her existing Le Creuset pieces, or that matches the color scheme in her kitchen. This way it’s not only a lovely functional set, but it’s something she’ll be really happy keeping on her countertop.
The crock is dishwasher-safe stoneware that is made to last. The silicone tools are heat-resistant BPA-free silicone, and feature beautifully crafted ergonomic handles. The heads are removable, so they can be washed in the dishwasher, but the wood handles are handwash only!
This freestanding wine fridge is great for any wine collector. It holds 8 standard Bordeaux-size bottles. The cooling system is silent and vibration-free, which makes keeping it in the kitchen a breeze.
According to the site, “the removable stainless steel wine racks allow you to customize the cellar and the built-in soft lighting makes it a perfect show piece in any kitchen, den, or home bar.” It is small enough to keep on a counter, and the contemporary styling means your loved one won’t want to hide it.
It’s a bit... cheeky to add this one to the list, but we love this little ceramic mug from Urban Outfitters. Sculpted into part of the female form, this mug is the perfect gift for any woman. It comes in a few different shades, too, in order to be more inclusive of all skin colors!
Your girlfriend will get a kick out of drinking out of this mug every time she pulls it down from the cupboard... maybe just remind her not to take it to her next Zoom meeting!
This little dumpling nightlight is so teeny it’ll fit right into the palm of your hand. So, it’s probably not going to light a room or help you read a book, but that smiling face makes a very cute nightlight to leave on all night without disturbing your sleep. It comes in clear and tan, so you can get one that looks a little more realistic or one that lets off a tiny bit more light.
Drop it in a stocking or get the rest of the food lights from Smoko to create a whole yummy glowing set. Urban Outfitters also carries a boba tea, a potato, a pear, and some toast, all giving off a delightful glow.
Have you tried mochi yet? It’s sweet and chewy on the outside, cold and creamy on the inside, and surprisingly adorable all around. Your gift recipient can use this kit to turn their favorite homemade (or store-bought – no judgment!) ice cream into delicious mochi balls.
They can tint and flavor the mochi with the included matcha and cocoa powder, then make them into fluffy little pillows for their ice cream balls.
It’s a great afternoon activity to do with a friend or a child. Or, heck, tell them to go ahead and make a set of 8 and enjoy them alone with a nice crisp wine. No one will tell if they don’t share. 😉
