Finding the perfect gift for your loved ones can be challenging, especially in lieu of this year’s events. Fortunately, there’s still time to do your last-minute shopping so you can make the holidays even more special. If you have a food and drink lover in your lives, here are some last minute gift ideas that will be sure to delight them. 

Last Minute Gift Ideas for the Food + Drink Lover in Your Life 

Membership Boxes
This is one of our favorite last minute gift ideas. Over the last couple years, membership boxes have grown increasingly popular, meaning there’s a variety of options you can choose based on your interests. Although these tend to be a little more expensive, most allow you to customize how often they’re sent (monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly) and their size so you can stay in budget. Consider these options when looking for memberships, but feel free to do your own searching – don’t forget to be creative! 

The Gourmet Cheese of the Month Club
The Original Wine of the Month Club
Amazing Clubs
Craft Beer Club 

Recipe Books
Even the most advanced food and drink lover can learn a thing or two from a recipe book! To add a more personal touch, think about other interests your gift-receiver has; maybe a favorite celebrity, type of food, or holiday that could be translated into a recipe book. Browse places like Target or Amazon for a huge range of choices that you can grab before the holidays are up.  

For the culinarian or craft cocktail aficionado, accessories are everything. Giving a cool or unique piece of kitchenware is a great way to stand out with a gift that will definitely be put to use. Not to mention there are tons of places to find kitchenware that don’t have to break the bank. Check out your local thrift store or antique shop for pieces you won’t find every day.  

Grown-Your-Own Kits
Gifting a grown-your-own kit also means gifting the satisfaction of growing and eating your own food (which counts as two gifts if you ask us). Similar to recipe books, there are a lot of options to choose from like:  

Mushroom Gardening Kit
Grow 4 Herbs for Making Herbal Tea 

In addition to looking at your favorite shopping sites, consider visiting your local plant nursery to ask for help or ideas for a more personal touch. And don’t forget about drinks! While it can’t be growngiving pre-made alcohol infusions or tools to make your own is sure to be a crowd-pleasing gift.  

Even if you’re buying last minute, it doesn’t mean you have to compromise on quality. Be creative when thinking of a gift or where to buy it and remember, it’s about giving from the heart, not how much you spend. We hope this guide for last minute gift ideas for the food and drink lover in your life is helpful when finishing your holiday shopping!
