The best gift guide for foodies and cooks for under $20! There are so many awesome, inexpensive gifts for someone who loves cooking! As I do every year, I’m presenting a few of my favorite things . . .
I’ve hand picked some really cool and super fun gifts for your foodie and cooking friends and family this year. I’m sure they’ll all be a hit (I either have them or want them!), and they’re all less than $20!
As always, I’m featuring a handful of things from UncommonGoods, among other places. UncommonGoods never disappoints when it comes to cool, unique items. So I am thrilled they’ve sponsored me again this year to include them in my gift guide.
While I’m sharing cooking and foodie related things below, UncommonGoods also offers other fabulous finds in their Christmas gifts collection here and here. And my son found some great things for my husband — he told me they have really awesome “dad stuff.” 🙂 There are examples here and here.
UncommonGoods aims to feature unique designs and handcrafted gifts that are created with thoughtfulness about the environment and without harm to animals or people. Their mission is to support and offer artists and designers a place to share and sell their craft. They also have a Better to Give Program, which allows one to select a non-profit organization to receive a $1 donation from them at checkout. They have donated over $1,000,000 since it was created in 2001. Gotta love that!
