If you're looking for some stylish Christmas gifts for foodies, you've come to the right place. While some might think foodies are the easiest to buy for, if they're bone fide food-obsessed, then it's likely they already have a kitchen (or drinks cabinet) packed full of the basics. 

So what on earth do you buy the foodie who already has everything? Well, the trick is to find something new or unusual, exclusive or limited edition... something that they may already have as standard, but you've found an elevated version that's bound to tickle their foodie fancy.

If it's an appliance you're after, from the best dual-zone air fryers to the best saucepan sets, we have a whole raft of buying guides for you to reference when you have a rough idea what you plan to buy them. 

If however, you're looking for general inspiration, something new and stylish for their kitchen, dining room or drinks cabinet, then read on.

We've avoided the gimmicky gadgets and contraptions that people tend to use just once (teppanyaki grill or panini maker, anyone?). Instead, we've carefully selected a host of super stylish buys priced from as little as £4.50 for a snazzy new oven mitt to just shy of £200 for a dreamy new best ice cream maker

So with Christmas on the near horizon, why not tick something else off your gift list with one of these brilliant buys? Happy Shopping!
