Ambrosia Gift Guides: For The Foodie!

We’re DEFINITELY feeling the Holiday Heat when it comes to shopping for our friends & loved ones… can you believe that Christmas is almost one week away?! YIKES! Well, today we’re helping you tic the Foodie off of your gift list with some of our favourite HEALTHY food gift picks… we ARE a health food store after all!

The Foodie’s Gift Guide – Brit, Team Ambrosia

Food, in any and all forms, is most definitely a HUGE focal point during the holidays! The quintessential Christmas or Hanukah Dinner is one of the main events during the holidays… I mean, I literally spend weeks practically salivating at the mere thought of all of the festive goodies that come with the holidays and this time of the year!

But today, it’s all about the person in your life that thinks about food 24 hours a day, seven days a week… AKA the foodie! Below is a perfectly curated list dedicated solely to the epicurean on your gift list!

1. Cookbooks

Cookbooks are an incredibly useful and practical gift for avid home cooks, you absolutely can’t go wrong with this gift idea! We carry such a wide variety of healthy cookbooks at both our Thornhill and Vaughan locations! From Ricki Heller’s Naturally Sweet & Gluten Free dessert book to Dave Asprey’s Bulletproof Cookbook, we have a little something for every type of foodie on your list!

 2. Numi Flowering Tea Set

Food that doubles as art? This is literally what I would imagine a foodie’s dreams are made of! This flowering tea set in bamboo definitely delivers on the whole authentic and sophisticated side of things… organic tea leaves are literally hand sewn around flowers which blossom into gorgeous shapes and flavours… right in the tea cup!

3. Preserve Cutting Board

The foodie on your list is obviously going to need a little something to help prep all of their home cooked creations on! Insert: Preserve Cutting Boards. These colorful, sturdy & knife-friendly cutting boards are made with 100% recycled #5 plastic, meaning that these products are free from BPA, phthalates and melamine. If you’re shopping for a trendy foodie, go with the white variety! Other varieties come in red or green… AKA they come in “Christmas”. We’ve included some of the Preserve products in our Fitness Fanatic gift guide, so be sure to check that out here!

4. Organic Truffles

Truffles are synonymous with elevated sophistication, and these organic truffles from Truffettes de France are no different! I’m thinking that putting together a Christmas themed foodie gift set including these truffles, Christmas jams and teas, gluten-free gingerbread men and natural candy canes would make for the perfect foodie gift basket… all of which can obviously be found right here at Ambrosia!

5. Bulk Sampler Gift Set

 This is a particularly “smart” gift to give a foodie if they’re hosting a holiday party! We have a really wonderful selection of bulk items, and festive nuts that would make for a perfect gift! Your foodie can set these out as a snack for all of their holiday guests! Psssst chocolate covered almonds and Brazil nuts are both on sale this month! Simply grab one of our sampler platters (available in three sizes), and fill it with some of your foodies’ favourite goodies!

6. DIY Gourmet Gift Baskets

Gift baskets are a great go-to when it comes to the holidays, but why not put a little personal touch to these gift baskets by creating your very own for a loved one! Fill your gift basket with jars of olives, balsamic vinegars and olive oils, crackers, chocolates, fruit or mustard spreads… and you’re more than good to go!
