Have a foodie friend or family member in your life? Need gift ideas? These gifts for healthy foodies are sure to win them over. These could work as Christmas gifts for foodies, birthday gifts, or for anything in between.
Most food lovers probably already own things like a food processor or dutch oven, so this list is a compilation of things they may not have, but would love to get.
There’s a good mix of unusual gifts, practical gifts, and gifts for all budgets. I hope you find this holiday gift guide helpful!
Gifts For Healthy Foodies – Memberships
In my opinion, the common gift box is overused and I’m often left feeling underwhelmed. Gifting a membership like Thrive Market is unique and so thoughtful. Thrive market is basically like an online Costco for healthy food. Purchase a membership, and have access to all their incredible low prices on quality products. Best of all it’s shipped straight to your door. Thrive Market offers 6 or 12 month memberships.
ButcherBox is a top notch meat delivery service. I myself have been a member for years and can’t rave about them enough. The quality of meat is high, and they have excellent customer service. ButcherBox has different options for your budget, and meat preferences. Choose between a custom or curated box, big or small. You can read more about them here. Nothing says happiness like a big box of meat.
Gifts For Healthy Foodies – Food
#3 – Hu Chocolate Bars
Hu chocolate is the gold standard of healthy chocolate. They use minimal ingredients, are organic, and taste great. Shop online or at your local grocery store for these heavenly bars. Which, by the way, are paleo, vegan, and gluten free! Psst…the mint chocolate bars are my favorite.
Further Food is a woman owned business just killing it in the collagen department. Their ingredients are clean and minimal which is what every healthy foodie wants. Collagen has many benefits including healthy skin, hair, and nails. They offer flavored collagen like vanilla, chocolate (highly recommend), and hazelnut. Or keep it simple with their unflavored collagen. You can use code SIMPLYJ to save 15% off your order!
#5 – Daily Harvest
While this is similar to a gift box, it’s customizable which makes all the difference. Daily Harvest offers a multitude of healthy food items ranging from smoothies, harvest bowls, flatbreads, soups, oat bowls and more. All healthy, all delicious. Browse their gift section here.
#6 – Bread Srsly
Bread Srsly is a bread company specializing in gluten free sourdough. They have flavored loaves, rolls, and of course, the classic plain sourdough (my favorite!) Their bread is free from the top 8 allergens. Sourdough bread is naturally fermented which supplies our gut with good bacteria. It’s the perfect gift for your foodie friends.

#8 – Grocery Gift Cards
Everyone likes a gift card. Grab a gift card to a healthier grocery store like Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Sprouts or Natural Grocers and make someone’s day.
#9 – Ollipop
Ollipop may look like a soda on the outside, but on the inside it’s full of prebiotics, probiotics, and healthy plant fiber to support a healthy microbiome. Choose 1 of the 9 flavors or snag a variety pack. Orange squeeze is a personal favorite. You can save 15% by using code SIMPLYJ at checkout!

Is it bad I’m secretly hoping I get gifted this beauty? I mean look at her 🙂 This high end air fryer/toaster oven combo can’t be beat.

It even comes with a 13″ nonstick pizza pan, 2 heavy-duty oven racks, broil rack, enamel baking pan and an air-fry/dehydrater basket. I mean – WHAT?! Talk about luxury gifts for foodies. BRB sending my husband a text message to drop a subtle hint.
