Foodies are all around us. Chances are that you know someone who loves to try new restaurants or is excited to add an exotic spice to their collection. If that’s the case, then you’re in luck; there are plenty of great foodie gifts to give to someone, regardless of their palate. Within our collection of products are the ingredients of an ideal present.

The stereotypical foodie is seen as someone obsessing over fine dining. But, this distinction can also describe a person who loves to cook and sees the practice as a way to express their creative side. If that’s the case, we’ve found sets of spices for some of the world’s most beloved meals—from pizza to tacos—to help enhance the flavors of a signature dish. To broaden their culinary horizons, we've also selected a variety of cookbooks with hundreds of yummy and easy-to-follow recipes to inspire future meals. Our favorite guides cover delicious snacks, different types of cookies, and mouth-watering Korean dishes that are completely vegan.

Another thoughtful gift idea can be something that enhances a chef's kitchen experience. This can include whimsical cookware, like a pair of googly-eyed pasta servers, and a bamboo charcuterie board to present varieties of cheeses. Something small can work just as well. You'd be surprised at home much an herb preserver or avocado cover can be appreciated.

But if drinks are more your gift recipient’s style, try giving them a homemade kombucha kit, stylish pour-over coffeemaker, or travel cocktail set. Of course, if you are buying for someone who prefers to eat rather than cook, we have you covered. A pho pin and an adorable croissant brooch made our list. No matter what you choose, one thing is for sure: the world is your oyster.

Get ready to whet your appetite with 40 of the best gifts for foodies!
