Figure out what to buy the food the food lover in your life with this great foodie gift guide. Number 5 is essential in every person's life. Get the list on RachelCooks.com!

There’s still plenty of time to buy gifts! Especially with Amazon Prime, right?

I try to do at least one gift guide every year and somehow I always end up with a food lover’s gift guide. I tried to stray from it last year but still ended up with mostly food-related items. In 2013 I did another foodie gift guide, oh and hey, yet another in 2012.

This year I included mostly things I have and love but a few others that might just be on my wish list as well.

1. Adorable espresso mugs in every color of the rainbow.

I mean, how cute are these?!?!

2. These pretty stemless champagne flutes!

I got them in blue and I love them. I love how the blue spots on the glass look like bubbles.

3. Spiceologist Rubs

They’re the bomb and make creating delicious food a total breeze.

4.The Inspiralizer

I’ve tried three different spiralizers to date and so far this is my fave. I love the suction feature – it grips the counter so well! Plus, it’s created by a fellow blogger which is a bonus. If you’re buying this, consider also buying Ali’s cookbook, Inspiralized!

5. Popcorn Popper.

Is this really a surprise? Everyone needs one in their kitchen. To make it a complete gift, throw in a bag of Bob’s Red Mill popcorn – it’s my favorite.

6. Gorgeous Serving Platters

Etsy has tons of choices but I love these pretty white ones! I love the unique shape of them – they’d be so pretty on the table. (And in pictures!)

7. A ceramic travel mug

I really prefer a glass mug to a metal mug and I avoid our metal mugs at any cost. Unless I really want my coffee to stay hot for a long period of time. What’s that like, anyways? So, I usually just use my regular mug in the car too, but that doesn’t always end up so well. When I was wandering the aisles of Meijer and saw a cute ceramic mug with a lid similar to one in the picture, I snatched it up. It doesn’t keep the coffee hot much longer than a normal mug, but it is much less prone to spill. Which is good.

8. Sphere Ice Molds

Because they are fun. And pretty. And one big ice cube doesn’t water down your drink as much as a bunch of small ones.

9. Great Salt and Pepper Grinders

I love these from OXO because they are adjustable and durable enough for every day use but pretty enough to set on the table too.

10. Fun Ornaments

These would make great stocking stuffers. Sur la Table has a ton of really fun choices. No popcorn though. What’s up with that?
