Gift ideas for your food-obsessed friends

Gifts can be difficult to buy for friends, especially when you want to get them something they will love. To get the ideas flowing, think of their interests, likes and hobbies. If food pops into your head, then you are in the right spot! We all have at least one foodie friend who is constantly eating out and entertaining at home, which makes buying them a gift as easy as pie.

Dine

What does a foodie really want? Food, of course! Take them out for a nice lunch to catch up and enjoy some delicious food or go for dinner with a drink or two and see where the night takes you. When it comes to deciding the cuisine, you can either go with their favourite or try a new cuisine, or you can even let them do the choosing.

Whether you’re after a quick bite for lunch or somewhere casual to catch up with friends for dinner, everyone is welcome to dine at our table.”

Homewares

A real foodie loves to entertain at home, but to do that they must first have the right utensils. Feed their obsession with new glasses, a decanter or even a new serving dish. The list goes on and on for the things that they would love, to make entertaining at home even better!

Harris Scarfe
Harris Scarfe is a growing department store with a product offering consisting of Australia’s favourite national brands and exclusive private labels across Manchester, Homewares, Electrical and Men’s & Ladies fashion.

Minimax
Minimax was the first homewares store to create the point of difference of presenting its curated product range with a style and service that gave inspiration to its customers. Minimax has transformed its business by ranging a collection of kitchenware and homewares, introducing some of the top brands into the Australian market and elevating the Minimax brand to be Australia's premiere homewares retailer with stores spanning across Victoria and South Australia.

Swish Homewares
Swish homewares is an SA, family owned and operated business, established in 2007, specialising in quality home décor, giftware, fashion and more!

Gift card

For the pickier friend, a gift card is the best way to let them do the choosing. Whether it’s going out for dinner or lunch or updating their homewares, the options are endless for your food-loving friend.

Cookbook

Cookbooks are especially perfect for those people who like to attempt to cook their favourite foods like the pros. You can even go a step further and pair a cookbook with some homewares. If it’s a cookbook full of desserts, pair it with a pack of cookie cutters, or if it’s an Italian-inspired cookbook, opt for a pasta maker. If they enjoy entertaining at home, you can even choose a cocktail how-to book with a bottle of spirits for something a bit different.
