We love our foodie friends. Oh, how we love them. We may even have a few among us (ahem, Stacie) so we adore tracking down the kinds of holiday gifts that foodies will totally appreciate and adore beyond what you’d ever think, whether they like cooking, or just eating what other talented food artisans are creating.
