Someone you love just moved into a new place.
What a perfectly delightful excuse to gift them something unique.
Especially when your memory of them conjures an image of delightful dishes you got to try thanks to their own love for food.
They have filled your life with sensory pleasures over the years, and finally, you get to do something outstanding for them.
When it comes to gifting your food-loving buddy, you need to pick out something that will show them how much you appreciate their passion for food.
Better yet, get them a unique treat that is bound to tingle their taste buds.
Here are our top gift ideas for your foodie friend that will warm their hearts and brighten their faces.
1 - A Set of Handcrafted Wooden Kitchenware
Wooden kitchenware is handcrafted, unique, and can make for splendid gifts.
When picking out a set for your foodie buddy, you want utensils that will last. Maple, cherry, and walnut wood look naturally beautiful and make for durable kitchenware. On top of that, they add that bit of panache to the kitchen decor.
To add some personalization to the gift, ask the artisan to engrave your friend’s name on the item.
When putting together your set of wooden kitchenware, you can also include:
- A sturdy cutting board
- A handy spoon and spatula
- An engraved serving bowl
- An embellished salad bowl
- A long flat tray
2 - A Congrats Gift Box
Moving to a new house is a momentous occasion for your food-loving buddy—a congratulation may be called for.
Our Congrats Gift Box is packed with delicious treats with exotic flavors.
These delectable delights are handmade, employing rich Mediterranean craftsmanship honed over centuries.
Our Congrats Gift Box comes with assortments like bjewia pistachio topped with dried rose petals and almond boats filled with caramelized chocolates. It's the best way for us here at Layla's Delicacies to share a piece of our heritage with you.
And it gets better. These treats are made with natural ingredients and are bound to bust your protein and fiber levels.
3 - A Culinary Gift Box
One thing we know about foodies is that their taste buds are always craving unique and exciting flavors. They are always open to exotic foods, spices, or just combining common ingredients to develop some tantalizing dishes for us to try out.
So what will be a better gift than one that indulges this quality we love about them?
You can go out on a limb and buy a pre-packaged kit from Amazon, or you can get creative and curate a unique culinary gift box that is highly personalized to them.
Think about the culinary kit and what it will contain.
- Do you want to assort a collection of their favorite spices or unique spices you recently discovered, maybe in the Asian or African market?
- What about a sample of a few gourmets and ingredients?
- Perhaps a delightful collection of sources and soups?
4 - Scented Candles Gift Set
Settling into a new house can be stressful. To ease up some tension for that foodie in your life, gift them a set of scented candles.
Mediterranean fig, lavender, spring, and lemon scents bring a calming ambiance to any space.
Include a few aromatherapy candles in your gift pack if you want them to relax at the end of a long day of entertaining guests at the housewarming party.
Aromatherapy candles are infused with essential oils—concentrated plant or resin substances.
Essential oils like Cedarwood, Clare sage, Sandalwood, Orange, and Lavender are known for inducing a sense of relaxation.
5 - Layla’s Delicacies Escape Box
When you are looking for a scrumptious dessert that is deliciously exciting and will take your best foodie’s taste buds on a journey through time and culture, Escape Box is the name for it.
Layla's Delicacies provides a collection of Tunisian snacks that infuses French, Spanish, and North African cultures.
The Berbers of North Africa influenced almond usage in these treats. Another critical ingredient, pistachio, has its origins in the Middle East.
These delicious snacks come individually wrapped in various flavors and different textures.
Here are some of the delicacies you can expect to find in the box.
- Chopped almond with hazelnut and pistachios topping
- Crunchy walnut with white chocolate and almond
- Crunchy sesame shell and silky chocolate
- A delicate mixture of almond and pistachio
The Escape Box also comes in beautiful packaging to make thoughtful gift-giving that much more effortless.
6 - Pickling Kit
A pickling kit can be a simple yet impactful gift to your foodie friend. Think about it. This is an item they will use from time to time to pickle their favorite: carrots, asparagus, onions, squash, or any other vegetables they like.
The table below shows the items you’ll need to include in your pickling kit.
|Pickling Kit Item||Use|
|Fermenting jar, or Mason jar||Putting the brine and vegetables|
|Airtight pickling lid||Closing the pickling jar|
|Air pump||Sucking the air out of the pickling jar|
|Pickling weight||Keeping the vegetable under the brine|
You can even include your favorite picking recipe in the assortment or a few already pickled vegetables.
What this gift tells your friend is that you love them so much and you want them to enjoy a healthy snack from time to time—because pickled vegetables are full of antioxidants, vitamin A, and probiotics.
7 - A Collection of Potted Plants
Do you know what your foodie friend can’t get enough of? A nice little collection of potted spices. The gift that keeps on giving.
So plant some cilantro, lemon balm, basil, mint, or rosemary into cute little containers. Label them nicely before putting the procession on a lovely tray.
Live plants have a way of jolting life into any space. They add a refreshing ambiance that elevates any mood, so don't be afraid to get them other live plants if you can't access the spices.
Snake plants, jades, pothos, aloe, and bromeliad are some gorgeous-looking plants that are easy to maintain with no special treatment required.
Better yet, get them the world-renowned Chinese money plant—famously believed to bring prosperity and good fortune to a house—an auspicious gift for the auspicious housewarming occasion.
Tip: When picking out a potted plant, ask if the plants will go out onto the balcony or a backyard where there is plenty of sunlight, or if they will be entirely indoors. This enables you to get plants with the appropriate sunlight requirements. Most plant vendors will give you details about how much sun a plant needs.
8 - Samsa Pistachios
Samsa Pistachios are another one of our luscious treats with a story to match, meant to charm its way into your heart.
These triangular-shaped delights are made with brick filo sheets filled with crunchy almonds and hazelnuts using a stuffing technique inherited from the Moors of Spain.
The sensory delight is then sprinkled with pistachio for that slightly sweet and smooth flavor.
Gift this to that foodie in your life to trigger a delightful explosion of exotic flavors in their mouth that will keep their heart racing from excitement.
A House Warming Gift to Warm That Foodies Heart
The foodie in your life's sensory adventure will play a significant role when selecting that unique present.
You want to give them something unique that will keep you on top of their mind often so that when they think of you, a warm smile cracks up their face.
Thoughtful gifting is a display of affection and a great way to show that foodie buddy that you know them well enough to get them something they will enjoy.
Here at Layla's Delicacies, we take pride in our great family values and rich heritage. That is why we take our time to hand make all our delightful treats using natural ingredients, that are also vegan friends.
