Beer & Food Calendar

Could there be a better way to keep track of the passing days than with beer & snack combinations? I think not. Especially when they’re this beautifully illustrated.

The cool way to make coffee. Package it with a blend from your favorite local coffee company for the perfect present

All three of these are on my list this year. Two come from my favorite bloggers and one is a classic for every aspiring patissier. With gorgeous photography and delicious recipes, you can’t go wrong. Make sure you write a little note on the inside cover so they’ll always be reminded of you when they open it. Make it extra special with a pretty apron from Anthropologie.

Monogrammed Forged Steak Brand

Because there isn’t a grill loving man or woman alive who wouldn’t want to serve guests personalized steaks during a cookout. Seriously–have you met grill lovers? They mean business.

Pretty Plates

I am smitten with this dinnerware set from Anthropologie. They would be the perfect way to throw a garden themed dinner party.

Hot Chocolate & Mug Set

Kebaya Mug-2

Because everyone loves hot chocolate & marshmallows, especially when you can sip it out of a beautiful mug.

At Home Brewery Kit

Because the pride they will have in their brew will be worth a million bucks.

Foodie Night Out

If the Whole Foods in your town has a Salud Cooking School (or find something similar at places like William Sonoma or local supper clubs) sign you two up for a cooking class or tasting! One of my favorite nights this year was a chocolate and wine tasting at Salud with my roommate–not only is it my ideal date location, but its such a fun way to spend time together and it makes a perfect present for your foodie friend!
