18 Unique Christmas Gifts for the Real Food Foodie

Gifts for the real food foodie
In our continuing 12 days of Christmas sweets and giveaways series I thought I’d share some very gift-able sweet recipes (plus some kitchen items) in a new form for me – a collage. It was fun making! The vast majority of these are very inexpensive – especially the food ones – but any real food foodie will appreciate and enjoy them. Christmas is a delicious time of the year! And the gift idea recipes listed above are all made with real food ingredients. What’s not to love? The kitchen items are fun and useful things to have, no matter what your cooking style. Enjoy! 

(And don’t forget to sign up for the Vitamix Blender giveaway or the giveaway of my book, Ladled!)

Here is a list of the items above:
