A Paper-Inspired Gift Guide for Food Enthusiasts

By: Kelly Lanza, Oh So Beautiful Paper

It’s that time of year again — the holidays are fast approaching and you need gifts for all the homecooks, chefs or baking enthusiasts on your list this year. Well, we’ve rounded up the gifts of their food-loving dreams. It's alright if some of these get added to your very own holiday wish list, too (we won't tell).

Art Prints

Food-inspired art prints are the perfect addition to any cook’s kitchen. Farmers' market finds and sweet treats look extra delicious in illustrated form.

A food-themed calendar is the perfect gift for that hard-to-buy-for name on your list. Everyone needs one and these will keep the recipient on schedule (and well fed).

Tea Towels and More

If art prints and calendars won’t fit the bill, you’re in luck. The food-inspired gifts don’t stop there. A beautiful wooden recipe card box keeps those treasured family recipes tucked away (making a great gift for a newlywed) and a handmade tea towel keeps a kitchen tidy. Keep your friends and family organized outside of the kitchen, too, with market totes and notepads.

Wondering how to package it all up? Give a hint at what’s inside with these unique gift wraps. Add a mini spatula or wooden spoon as a fun present topper, too.
