Holiday Gift Guide: Six Random Gifts for the Foodie Who Has Everything
|The ultimate new foodie...|
1. Girl Scout Cookie Lip Balm
Before you say, "You've got to be kidding!" think about it. You can't get that fix year-round. The new cookie season doesn't even start for another 40-plus days. Unless you stockpile Thin Mints in your freezer (we hear they taste delish cold), this isn't an item that's readily available. So treat them to a hit of Coconut Caramel Stripe, Trefoil, Thin Mint, Tagalong and Do-Si-Do whenever the mood strikes. Ideal for the frugal shopper, this pack of five flavors comes out to exactly a buck a pop, no freezing required. Find them at Claire's and Wal-Mart.
2. Classic Knuckles Bottle Opener
For the hostile video gamer with a penchant for beer, the lovely chrome on this baby offers practical use and protection. Dual-purpose gift that's badass: Win! It can be found at Bust a Bottle Cap for $25, and we feel obligated to mention the disclaimer: This product is not intended to be used as a weapon. Under normal use, this bottle opener will not cause serious injury. Whatever. . . .
3. Sodastream Genesis Soda Kits
Feeling generous? Are they greener than Kermit? If you answered yes to both, then Sky Mall has you covered. Get their DIY tendencies on with a soda-making kit. Guaranteed to make them feel like they're doing something for the environment, this contraption reduces bottle waste, saves them money and comes in diet flavors -- because you gotta look good when saving the planet. Priced between $99 and $129.
4. Scrabble Refrigerator Magnet Set
|The Spoon Sisters|
Trying to have a conversation with a Words With Friends addict is tough to compete with -- just ask Alec Baldwin. Throwdown for some attention with this old-school version, or just use it as a grocery list if there's a tendency to lose your pen. Priced at $12.50 at The Spoon Sisters.
5. Wonder Woman Mixer
Nothing says girl power like all-American baking equipment. Although only accessible if you've got the hook-up in Brazil, this KitchenAid model is no bargain at $500. Uh, maybe you can find one on eBay?
6. Three Wise Men Flask
Do they like their egg with a little more nog? Help them top off some holiday cheer with this trio of happiness. Urban Outfitters knows how to make it look good. And after a few too many, nifty labeling keeps you in the know when they are passed out later. Or maybe, just maybe you've got three friends who prefer monograms. Sold for $32.
