La Brea Bakery Foodie Gift Guide

The holidays are full of nostalgia: festive lights, snow (well, maybe), Christmas trees, parties and gift giving. The feeling of giving gifts is always a joyful one, but it can also be a bit stressful. If you’re looking to give a gift to the food lovers in your life, then we have a holiday gift guide to strike up some inspiration. Here are 10 gifts any true foodie would love:

  1. Cutting Board: Whether you’re carving your holiday pot roast or slicing your favorite La Brea Bakery loaf, a cutting board is an essential kitchen item for any cook. We suggest a wooden cutting board for its functionality and classic look.
  2. Kitchen Knife: There is nothing worse than a dull knife when trying to slice meat, fruit, or vegetables. A sleek and sharp kitchen knife will significantly improve any chef’s creative process.
  3. Apron: No one ever said cooking was clean. Protect against the cooking mess and look great at the same time.
  4. Gourmet Spreads: A delicious piece of crusty La Brea Bakery bread topped with a tasty spread is both easy and versatile. Whether you’re in the mood for something sweet like hazelnut or savory like olive, breads and spreads make for a great gift.
  5. Cookbooks: What foodie doesn’t love experimenting with new recipes?
  6. Really great Olive Oil: The really good stuff will last a while and odds are, the bottle will be pretty too.
  7. Cast Iron Skillet: From soufflé to stir-fry, a skillet is great for both cooking and baking.
  8. Beer/Wine Glasses: Did you know the shape of a glass affects the taste of certain wines and beers? A set of drinking glasses is great for any beer and wine connoisseur.
  9. Wooden Pizza Peel: Not everyone has a professional pizza oven, but your favorite foodie can feel like a pizza perfectionist with a wooden pizza peel. Not only does it look great, but it makes taking pizza in and out of the oven much easier.
  10. Sumptuous Cloth Napkins: Guests feel special, your table is a bit more elevated, and they last all year long!
