Last Minute Gifts for the Foodie and the Lush

Are you sick of all the gift guides yet? Or, are you one of those last minute shoppers who relies on them to purchase all their gifts? No matter which camp you are in, we’ve got a #RoadieRoundup of gifts for the most important people in your life – the foodies and the drinkers. These friends or family members are extra-special because they are the ones who cook for with you, eat with you, or drink with you – our favorite kind of people!blogger brunch

I recently attended a #bloggerbrunch at The Cook’s Warehouse and was wowed by the plethora of amazing gifts they’re offering this holiday season. (Thank you to Chef Adeline for the super helpful (and tasty) cooking demo and to Mary and team for the lovely event!) I wanted to walk out with pretty much everything they presented to us (or maybe it was the mimosas), but I did walk away with some great gift ideas, which I’ve rounded up for you here! And, even if you aren’t local, you can shop online and get free shipping on orders over $49.

  1. I love some of the ideas here – spread this scoop that? GENIUS! And I think gift guides can be a little over-kill but only when the same items are popping up. The unique ones (like this!) are the best!
