Gifts For Foodies

6 Delicious Wedding Gifts Not on the Registry

When it comes to wedding gifts, it's standard to select something practical, like china, off of the registry. However, if the bride and groom are foodies, why not consider presenting them with an awesome culinary experience instead? I've got six scrumptious suggestions that would also make wonderful birthday, anniversary, or Father's Day gifts.

  1. Gift certificate to a restaurant. Select a fancy restaurant in the couples' home town. Place the gift certificate in a pretty card and write a note suggesting that they enjoy a meal together to celebrate their six-month anniversary. (For those couples who prefer to register for special dinners, you can do so at FoodieRegistry.)
  2. Cooking classes. There's tons of awesome culinary classes out there, select one that suits the cooking style of the happy couple. If the bride and groom are really into cheese, purchase tickets to a cheese-making class. Likewise, if they're adventurous, present them with passes to a butchery class.

Check out the other four suggestions after the break.

  1. Private tasting at a winery. These days, most high-end wineries in places like Napa, Sonoma, and Santa Barbara charge tasting fees. Choose two to four wineries that are located in the same region. Call them and request tasting certificates. Give them to the couple wrapped in a map of the area.
  2. Spirits/cheese/wine club. Who wouldn't want a monthly shipment of alcohol, cheese, or wine delivered to their doorstep?
  3. Dinner catered by a private chef. Make the arrangements with a private chef to cater a dinner party for the couple. Offer to pay for the chef and groceries. Maybe you'll get invited to the party!
  4. Tickets to a food festival. Although they're not cheap, tickets to seminars, grand tastings, or parties at a festival like the South Beach Wine and Food Festival or Food & Wine Classic in Aspen would make the ultimate foodie gift!

Have you given (or received!) a culinary experience as a gift?

This posting reminded me of the site Newly Wish, where brides can register for 'outside the box' gifts, like dancing classes or cooking classes. Great idea!
