In light of how difficult crunchy gift giving can be, I thought I’d share some crunchier gift ideas that I’ve come across. Today’s crunchy gift guide is focused for the cooks in the home. Whether that is a grandparent, new mom, wife, husband, or college student these kitchen gadgets are sure to please them if they like cooking real food. There are some gifts that are pretty pricey and some that are reasonably priced.

Gifts for The Home Cook


Crunchy Gift Guide - Home Cook

Blender – Any blender is great for a home cook in my opinion; we use our every single day and often multiples times a day. However, if you want to give an amazing blender that will make that real foodie jump for joy, might I recommend a Vitamix or Blendtec? Those two are some of the most coveted kitchen appliances in the natural living world!

Canning Jars – Real foodies everywhere can attest to the fact that you can  never have too many mason jars! Odds are any size will do although I would say the freezer safe pint size are my favorite ones simply because I like to freeze in mason jars more often than canning them.

Water Filter – The water we drink everyday is full of contaminants so a water filter is a great kitchen tool! There are the standard water pitcher filters like Pur or there are ones like the most wanted Berkey water filters that will give you amazingly clean water.

Glass Storage Containers – Much like canning jars, you can never have too many glass containers. I love my pyrex and should probably pick up more!

Books – Whether it’s a real food cookbook or a book on food, a home cook can appreciate a bit of reading. Nourishing Traditions is a huge book but it’s a very popular book in the crunchy circles.

Real Food Ingredients – Kefir grains, real salt, a gallon of coconut oil? I know that might not seem amazing to everyone but odds are if the person you are shopping for is a natural foodie than a bunch of coconut oil is going to make their day!

Gift Certificates – Not sure exactly what to get the home cook? How about a gift certificate to some great real food resources such as Tropical Traditions, or Mountain Rose Herbs.

Food Processor – I got mine as a Christmas gift a few years back and I love it. I use it for grating mass amounts of cheese and veggies or making sunbutter. Needless to say, I love my Cuisinart food processor!

Food Dehydrator – This is a fun gift. More of a luxury gift, if you will. Odds are your home cook has thought about getting a dehydrator but just never has bought one because there’s always something more “practical” to buy. So surprise them.

Bamboo Cutting Boards – Yet another gift I have gotten for Christmas. I love my Bambu boards and need to pick up a few more in the other sizes.
 Great natural gift ideas for the home cook.
