Delectable Gifts For Foodies
Oscar Wilde said it best, “I hate people who are not serious about meals. It is so shallow of them.” Indeed, there is so much nuance and subtle flavour that anyone who isn’t a foodie is missing out. Those choosing junk food over fine dining are missing out, after all, junk food is television for tongues while fine dining is an Oscar-winning film. Instead of stuffing their faces, foodies take the time to savour each bite and explore the subtle flavours. It’s a better way to live. As Luciano Pavarotti, “One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”
Foodies Appreciate More Than The Food
The food writer, Tessa Kiros, described the feeling foodies share. It’s about how food is part of our memories, our experiences.
“There are some things that don't change much. I find the smell of a dish, or the way a certain spice is crushed, or just a quick look at the way something has been put on a plate, can pull me back to another place and time. I love those memories that seem so far away, yet you can hold them and carry them with you, even forget them, and then, with a single taste or hint or a smell, be chaperoned back to a beautiful moment.”
We can take Tessa’s insight when choosing gifts for foodies. We’re giving them an experience and the opportunity to create treasured memories.
You Don’t Want Gifts For Foodies They’ll Like, You Want Gifts For Foodies They’ll Love.
Foodies have a sophisticated palate. They can discern the difference between lemon and lime in a salad with 15 ingredients, between coffee from Mexico and coffee from Columbia, and between a risotto that used half a tablespoon of paprika with a risotto that used ¾ of a tablespoon. A foodie appreciates the nuance of food. The small things matter. So when you’re choosing gifts for foodies, you want to remember this. You want your gifts for foodies to get the little things right. You don’t want just any present, you want something a foodie will love. You want a stunning kitchen utensil by Joseph Joseph, a handcrafted kefir kit, or a food porn photo album. You want gifts for foodies they can post on Instagram and tell their foodie friends about. You don’t want gifts for foodies they’ll like, you want gifts for foodies that they’ll love.
