Cutting down on plastic in the world is a must, and with wooden chopping boards you can do just that. Not only will they look better than their plastic counterparts but also have countless benefits such as reduced chemicals! Olive wood is my personal favourite because of its natural variations which make each board one-of-a kind and a perfect gift for any self-proclaimed chef.

We’ve all heard them saying: “If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.” - but what better gift is there than the gift of cooking.  It's not just food that matters, it is also an experience that they will love!

Bamboo Dinnerware 

We all want to feel like we are doing our part for the planet and every little change can make a difference. Maybe your friend is trying out reusable plates, or cutting back on single-use plastics at home? Introducing them with new bamboo tableware would be an excellent first step in their journey!

Bamboo is a great alternative to plastic tableware and has many benefits. Not only is it 100% biodegradable, it is highly sustainable and is super strong making them the ideal choice for the environment and your kitchen. 

It's not just the picnic and outdoor events that are making people buy bamboo tableware sets, as many of them also choose it for their home crockery too.

Eco-friendly foodies will be pleased to know that they can find a lunchbox for every occasion. Not only are these durable, but also eco friendly and reusable! Choose from different sizes or designs depending on your giftee’s preference - everyone needs an upgrade of their old one!

Giving the gift of food never disappoints. Farmer markets and independent delis are great places to pick up some delicious treats that they will love. Not only does this support local businesses but also helps out our environment too! Discover hidden gems in your area and give someone you care about some yummy goodies that are locally sourced. 


Foodies have many options for their gift-giving needs, and it's hard to know where to start. I hope this article helps you find great ideas so that the foodie in your life will love what they receive!
