What should you buy a foodie for their birthday?

Once you’ve worked out that someone is passionate about food, buying presents for them should be pretty easy no matter the budget!

If you’re on a tight budget, then some high quality ingredients would go down a treat – from exotic spices that they wouldn’t buy for themselves, or a little tool that makes cooking their favourite meals just a little bit easier.

With a slightly larger budget, there are always fantastic new cookbooks being published – just find out what they are into – but if you think that is a bit of a cop-out, then there is always a fine bottle of wine or whisky, or even a subscription to a magazine like Olive for great recipes every month!

Obviously with a big budget your choices are endless, but for someone passionate about cooking rather than getting them a gadget, why not a coffee subscription to improve their mornings or a cooking course to improve their cooking?
