Not everyone may agree, but IMO, the best kind of gifts are the ones you can eat. With food gifts, you never get the wrong size, an ugly color, or (ugh) just another useless thing to take up precious room in your closet. Instead, you get instant gratification and a happy belly—what more could you ask for? From cupcakes and cookies to meats and cheeses, there are tons of gourmet food gift ideas that are sure to be a hit, whether you're shopping for an expert baker or trying to find a present for your vegan friend. And don't worry—no actual culinary skills are required (unless, of course, you want to make something from scratch, in which case, more power to ya).

Great food gifts don't necessarily need to be eaten right away, either. You can also get your fave foodie some gourmet spices, sauces, salts, and oils, which they can then put to use next time they prepare a meal. Make-your-own food kits are an option as well, especially if you give 'em along with some fun kitchen tools. It doesn't matter if your recipient is a carnivore, a chocolate fiend, or a charcuterie board queen—there are gourmet food gifts out there for every taste and budget, and you may just be tempted to keep these edible prezzies for yourself. Ahead, feast your eyes on some of the most drool-worthy gifts to get the self-proclaimed foodie in your life.
