When it comes to the holidays, the best people (in my opinion) to buy for are the foodies. The ones who could talk about man ‘n’ cheese for days, who could list 20 great restaurants (within a one mile radius), and who ALWAYS bring the best dish to the party – yes, these self-proclaimed foodies are pretty easy to please in the gift giving department. I’ve compiled 40 gift ideas including options that are edible, presents that will satisfy a nagging sweet tooth, items that help make life easier, pieces that will show off that foodie style, necessities for the cook, things for people who love to drink, good reads for the foodie book worm and even a few products that don’t need an explanation! Keep reading for 40 gifts for foodies under $40!
