Gift Guide | For the Foodie + Hostess + Wine Lover

Nov 6, 2018

Today marks my first official gift guide of the season and of course I had to kick it off with my favorite one for the Foodie, Hostess and Wine Lover.   This is my love language right here if I don’t own these items already they are items I would love to own.   Thanks to everyone who sent me suggestions for other gift guides I wrote them all down and they will be coming up in the weeks leading to Christmas.  Lots of requests for parents, men, kid’s, beauty, under $100, Amazon prime and girlfriends so stay tuned!

Cheese Markers- The cutest cheese markers and under $30.  You could pair these with a platter if you wanted to spend more.

Cheese Knives– I love the wood/gold combo.  These are great alone or paired with a platter for a nicer gift.

Agate Wine Stoppers– Love this set of 3 stoppers you could give them as one gift or separate them paired with a bottle of wine or wine glasses.

Salted Honey- I love this stuff and any foodie would!  I drizzle it in my coffee in the morning and it is so yummy.  I think this plus the salt set below would be great paired together for someone who loves to cook.

Swell Barware Set– the cutest set, I just love the marble.

LeCreuset Mini Bowls– Did ya’ll see that Lecreuset has a new metallic line??  I am in love with it!  These mini bowls are perfect for your charcuterie boards.

Serving Board– loved this one so much I ordered it for myself.  It is currently 40% off!

Agate Plate– I also love this cheese platter and it is on sale as well.


Double Wall Iceless Wine Bucket– I love the idea of this wine bucket that doesn’t require ice.  It keeps wine chilled for 3 hours with no leaky ice!

Wine Tote– I have this wine tote and use it all the time.  Makes a great gift for any wine lover.

Wine Aerator – I have this same aerator and love it.   I swear to you this helps you wine taste better and it is dishwasher safe.  This is a great gift paired with a nice bottle of red.

Nest Holiday Candle– this is my favorite holiday candle.  It smells amazing and makes such a great gift.

Monogrammed Color Fringe Napkins– these are so fun for entertaining.  They come in several colors and with different monogram choices.

Sea Salt Set– I love a good salt set and this one is highly rated, a great gift for any home cook.

Yeti Coffee Mug– These especially make great gifts for the men.  My brother in law uses one all the time.

Sphere Ice Cubes– this another great one for the guys.  These are great for whiskey/bourbon drinks but I love them in my vodka.  They just make a pretty presentation when entertaining.  You can also use the round ones to make popsicles for the kids!

Barefoot Collection– this set includes 3 of my favorite Ina cookbooks.


Platters and Boards Cookbook– this is on my wish list!  Such a gorgeous book.

Fondue Maker- This is a steal currently 60% off!  Great for anyone who loves to entertain and host parties! Who doesn’t love fondue??

    I can vouch for the Jacobsen salt! It’s local to me and so so good 🙂 Great ideas! I have that agate platter on my wishlist.
