  23. Chocolate Bar Quartet
  24. foodie-gifts-for-men-chocolate

  27. Spicy Peanut Butter
  28.  

    foodie-gifts-for-men-peanut-butter

    You might think peanut butter is too pedestrian a gift for a real foodie. And if you were talking about ordinary peanut butter, you’d be correct, but this is no regular peanut butter. Instead, the addition of Habenero peppers kicks it! Creamy, sweet, and spicy, it’s like nothing they’ve ever tasted! 

  29. Balsamic Vinegar
  30. food-gifts-for-men-vinegar

    This Balsamic Vinegar is so smooth you could almost drink it from a wine glass! Made from sundried grapes and aged wine vinegar, it’s aged for at least 12 years in barrels made of different wood for different steps of the process, so the vinegar takes on the complex flavors imparted by the wood. Pair this vinegar with the olive oil above and a pinch of salt for the most delicious DIY salad dressing you’ll ever have. Or, drizzle a bit over vanilla ice cream or some strawberries. It sounds weird but trusts me, you’ll love it! 

  31. Bagels and Lox
  32. food-gifts-for-men-bagels

    Having moved away from NYC about five years ago, I can tell you with complete authority that there is no such thing as a good bagel outside of the 5 Burroughs. It’s the water, as any New Yorker will tell you. And arguably, the best NYC bagels come from H&H. These are H&H bagels! The gift includes bagels, Nova Scotia Salmon, and cream cheese. You can choose the quantity and flavor of the bagels, the amount of salmon, and the flavor of cream cheese. 

  33. Sea Salt Caramels

  35. Gourmet Olive Oil Gift Set
  36.  

    foodie-gifts-oil

    Perfect olive oil is so delicious and silky you could almost drink it straight. This olive oil tempts you. Of course, there is a world of difference between high-quality olive oil and many of the cheap stuff you’ll find in a local grocery store. These infused olive oils help elevate any dish.

  39. Amarena Cherries
  40. food-gifts-for-men-cherries

    If you think of Day-Glo red “maraschino” cherries that come in a glass jar as the pinnacle of fancy cherries, guess again! These are what real Italian cherries are. Amarena cherries are small, bitter cherries grown in Bologna and Modena, Italy. Packed in syrup, they aren’t sickly sweet like those jarred maraschino cherries. Instead, these are deliciously mixed with yogurt, spooned over ice cream, or added to a cocktail. 

  41. Saffron Threads
  42. food-gifts-for-men-saffron

    Saffron is one of the most expensive commodities on earth due to how difficult it is to harvest.

Used in many Persian dishes, risotto, and golden milk, this is a gift any foodie will treasure. 

  43. Artisan Nuts

  51. Cyprus Grove Cheese Cake
  52. food-gifts-for-men-cheese-cake

    Some foodies love savory, and some foodies love sweet. This is for the spicy lovers who always choose the cheese plate over the cake when ordering dessert. The cake is three wheels of soft-ripened goat cheese from Cypress Grove in northern California. The top and bottom layers are Humboldt Fog, and the middle is Truffle Tremore. All in all, it’s 9 pounds of cheesy goodness and a real show-stopper at your next gathering.

This is a unique gift for a foodie who has it all! 

  55. Rose Harissa Paste
  56. food-gifts-for-men-harissa

    Harissa is a Middle Eastern spice paste. Not typical for everyone but pretty standard for foodies. What makes this Harissa uncommon is the addition of rose petals. It has heat, sweetness, and smokiness that is exotic and unique. Harissa can be added to stews, soups, and couscous dishes and makes a great addition to marinades. 

  57. Smoked Salmon 
  58. foodie-gifts-for-men-salmon

  61. Whole Black Truffles
  62. food-gifts-for-men-truffle

    Truffles are a delicacy that no foodie can resist. They aren’t often sold in grocery stores, though, so this is a gift they will love. A few shavings over pasta, risotto, or soft-scrambled eggs, heaven! There are two or three black truffles from Umbria in each jar. Truffles are thought to be an aphrodisiac, so these make a great gift idea for Valentine’s Day.
