Thoughts, stories and ideas.

Everybody loves food, but there are some of us out there that really LOVE food. You know the kind. They'll try anything once, and a perfectly smoked gouda will bring literal tears to their eyes. Maybe you're a foodie, yourself; or maybe you just have the immense pleasure of loving one, but if you're looking for the perfect food-based gift this list is for you!

Artisanal Food Subscription Box

Subscription boxes are all the rage right now, with thousands of options to choose from. You can cater this box to your foodie's particular tastes (Is she a cheese gal or a cured meat girl?). Then every month your foodie will receive an amazing box of goodies to tantalize their taste buds.

Restaurant Tour

This idea is great because it combines good food with good company. Organize a restaurant tour for your foodie by picking out 3-5 restaurants and ordering one dish at every stop. Not having to choose between Italian and Indian will have you wondering why you don't do this for every meal!

Pro Tip: Reserving tables in advance would be a great way to ensure you will get a seat.

Vineyards

You may go for the breathtaking views and artisan wine, but most vineyards offer exceptional food as well. Check out the menu before you go and prepare to wash down your meal with a perfectly paired sauvignon blanc. This wonderful way to spend a summer's day with friends will be remembered for more than just a good meal.

Cooking Classes

Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, teach a man to perfectly sauté a fish alongside a zesty chimichurri sauce and, well, you get the picture. A cooking class is a no-brainer gift for the foodies in your life. By creating a Joyable account, friends and family members can all pitch in for an experience like this. (And in return, there's a good chance your food will want to share what they've learned with you! No complaints here!)

The best thing about foodies is their contagious passion for the perfect bite. They know good food is better when its shared and that's why we love to encourage them in any way we can.
