54 cute culinary-themed gifts for the aspiring food blogger

Always Fits / World Kitchen / Big Chill

We all have that friend who will not allow you to take a bite out of your bolognese until they’ve found the perfect angle for their Instagram picture.

Sure, it can be annoying (especially if you’re hangry) until you remember that this friend is also an incredible cook and often shares their culinary masterpieces with you. So what to get them for Chrismukkah? Surely they have enough kitschy salt and pepper shakers to last a lifetime, right?

Luckily, the frontier of food-themed gifts is vast and wide. Whether they’re a novice cook or a (well-seasoned, ahem) food blogger, stylish cooking accessories and interesting recipe books can make for thoughtful, unique gifts.

From pink kitchen gadgets to space-themed cutting boards, here are 54 food-themed gifts for the aspiring food blogger.
