Foodie Gift Guide 2012

The discrepancy between the amount of things I wanted to put on this gift guide and the amount that I did is...heartbreaking.  But on this one I went for the less is more principle.  Holiday shopping is overwhelming as it is.  No need to throw a million wonderful things at you and make it even more complicated right?

So I picked out a few of my absolute favorites.  And fortunately I think there is a little something for everyone on here.  No need to have a die hard foodie on your list to use this gift guide!

I also wanted to share Ashley's gift guides from The Uniqueness of Being.  They are pretty fabulous and go far beyond your foodie loving friends.  Part 1 includes gifts for the foodie, the crafty ones, and the men.  Part 2 includes gifts for the fashionista, the camera lover, and the pop culture fanatic.  Check them out, she's got all of the bases covered.

And of course you can always take a peek at my 2011 Foodie Gift Guide for a few more ideas!

1. Chocolate Hazelnut Spread from Askinosie Chocolate
-This stuff is to die for.  Along with everything else they make.  I'm also a big fan of the Dark Chocolate + Crunchy Sugar Crystals and Vanilla Bean CollaBARation Bar.

2. Barefoot Coffee Roasters
-I'm a major coffee lover.  And while I haven't had this...I'm pretty sure I should.  They have amazing combinations and it was voted in the top 4 of Food & Wine Magazine's Boutique Roasters.

3. Home Made Winter Cookbook
-This is a given.  The original Home Made Cookbook made my list last year.  And I love it to pieces.  Now I just need to get my hands on this one.

4. Julia Child Wall Art from Pot and Pantry
-Kitchen wall art.  Everyone needs some.

5. Pig Trivet from Jonathan Adler
-This was a hard one to narrow down.  But so adorable.  Right?  I also love his collection of bottle stoppers.

6. DIY Goat Cheese Kit from Belle Chevre
-No need for explanation here.  A simple kit to make your own cheese?  Yes please.

7. Lucky Peach Subscription from The McSweeney's Store
-A creation straight from David Chang of the Momofuku restaurants.  Food porn at its finest.

8. Silpat Baking Sheet Liner from Williams Sonoma
-An absolute necessity for the baker in your life.  Don't have a baker in your life?  Send me one of these and I'll send you baked goods for a month.

9. Camano Coffee Mill from Old Faithful Shop
-Back to the love of coffee thing.  And the love of old beautiful things.  This is a gorgeous thing to have on the counter even if it's not going to a coffee lover.

10. Calendar Year Dishtowels from Anthropologie
-Oh, Anthropologie.  Your kitchen products make my heart sing.  Seriously though.  Can I have it all?

11. Kyocera Revolution Ceramic Knife Set from Williams Sonoma
-Have you used a ceramic knife?  I finally purchased one a couple months ago and I'll never go back.  Your foodie friend needs one of these.  Or several.  I promise.

12. Jiro Dreams of Sushi 
-I can't tell you how wonderful this movie is.  It's simple.  Beautiful.  Everything that food should be.

13. P&H Soda Syrups from P&H Soda Co.
-These are so fun!  I'm definitely ordering the ginger syrup and making a cocktail.  Oh wait...this is a gift guide for other people?  Huh.  Maybe I'll share the cocktail?
