Got a foodie on your holiday list? Check out our 2020 Holiday Gift Guide with specialty foodie gift ideas your friends and family will treasure all year long.
"People who love to eat are always the best people." The inimitable Julia Child was, as she often was, right on the money with this quote.
Gourmet gifts are always wonderful to give and receive. Whether you have foodie friends who love to cook, are learning to cook, or who simply appreciate good food, treat them to special gifts they can enjoy all year long.
Give the Gift of Take-Out
All across the country, restaurants are suffering. Two easy ways to help support our local restaurants: order take-out and buy gift cards.
No matter where your friends and family live, you can find restaurants in their area. If you know they will be in town, order surprise take-out for them. Or, even better yet, buy gift cards to their favorite local restaurants.
If you're in the Portland, Oregon area, consider supporting these great restaurants:
- Kachka (SE Portland)
- Bamboo Sushi (PDX, San Francisco, Denver, Seattle)
- Hunan Pearl (Lake Oswego)
- DeCarli restaurant (Beaverton)
- Mingo West (Beaverton)
- Big's Chicken (Portland & Beaverton)
- Rock Paper Fish (SE Portland)
- Central Kitchen PDX (SE Portland)
- Arden (NW Portland)
2020 Top Kitchen Essentials
If you've got a kitchen gadget geek in your life, consider gifting one of these top kitchen essentials. Personally, I use my Ninja Foodi and also my Instant Pot Vortex Plus Air Fryer every single day. AND – these typically go on Mega Sale around Black Friday and in the days leading up to Thanksgiving and Christmas.
