What Is A Foodie?

Well, this would be someone who is very fond of, or interested in food. One who likes to eat, or make, as a hobby. Someone who finds joy and happiness is seeking out the best delectable treats around. You going to the fair? Don’t forget to bring back a snack for this one friend! So, who is a foodie, is rather the better question here.

So… Who Is A Foodie?

You is a foodie! Well, If you’re searching for a wish list to send to your spouse, and you’ve shared this page! If you are looking for the definition of a foodie, look here. I call myself one and you just might too. If you are unsure of how to know think about it this way. 1: Are you constantly asking ” Will there be food?!?” when invited to an event. 2: Asking “Where’s the closest food around here?” 3: Do you plan your road trips around restaurants, like, planning to stop at the locals top rated spots? 4: Do you constantly think of how to make your meals better, and possibly more fun? 5: Do you watch all the food shows on your favorite streaming services?

Starting to understand? Great! Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s get into what foodies love and appreciate!

As sometimes it is difficult, I hope this list helps when you are looking for something that will be just perfect!

For The Food Makers

For Your Food Lovers – and the easy way out.

That don’t necessarily like to cook, but LOVE to eat! Okay, so here is where you gift cards come in! But, you may feel it’s too simplistic. Yes, gift cards are great and all, but have you ever been at Christmas with your family or a Christmas work party and everyone gets these amazing gifts, and then you just get an envelope with a gift card? Well, one of three things happened, A: they had all the intentions to get you a gift and they ran out of time, or B: they had absolutely no idea what to get for you, but know your favorite restaurants, or C: They were lazy. But hey we’ve all been there, so remember to have grace when one of these slides into your lap, and just know this does not have to be a boring gift, when you’re on the other side!

Gifts cards can be an amazing option, but just make sure to pair it with a little something. Whether it be a mug or a thermos or a box inside a box inside a box etc.. with lots of their favorite candies. I think the key to someone receiving a gift card happily, is just making sure it looks like you put some effort or thought into it!
