For some odd reason we think everybody got the definition of ‘foodie’ wrong. We suggest that it’s not merely a person who loves to eat, but rather someone who has a special relationship with cuisine and doesn’t discriminate meals!
To break the cliché that foodies eat whatever’s in sight, we’ve garnered a list of unique food gifts for men encompassing a wide spectre of cultures from the US to China, West to East, and from the Baltic Sea to the Mediterranean, North to South! Stay tuned for our list of gifts for a foodie man.
Jerky Gift Basket – Recomended Gifts For A Foodie Man
Jerky Crates have hit Quokkadot’s stage before though they haven’t received due recognition. The crate stashes in 10 exotic jerky meats coming from three far-away continents.
Honey Bourbon Wild Boar strips, Root Beer Habanero Wild Boar, Pheasant, Duck, Ostrich, Elk, and more waiting for you to crack open the wooden crate with the metal crowbar the box comes with!
Dumpling Steamer Gift Set
Chinese food has rightfully earned its spot on the international food scene. Chinese food is an absolute godsend: it’s perfect after long night shifts when you just want to some grub before hitting the sack but also fit in a more formal setting.
To help you make restaurant-quality dumplings, this kit comes with: pack of bamboo steamer liner, pack of agar powder, round dough cutter, dumpling roller, and a dumpling filling spoon. Take cookery in your own hands and celebrate China’s favorite snack!
Whiskey Stones in a Barrel
Similar to the balls of steel we feature on our gifts for a 21-year-old, the Whiskey Stones Gift Set offers lovers of malt beverages to indulge in a cold, undiluted glass of whiskey with a stylish decanter sitting by their side.
Two twisted glasses with a weighted bottom, eight granite whiskey stones, stainless steel ice-cube tongs, a velvet carrying bag, and a whiskey cocktail bag all come in this neat barrel-shaped case!
Balsamic Vinegar of Modena Italy
First whiskey, then vinegar. Wasn’t this supposed to be a foody gift list? You have a point, handsome stranger, but food isn’t just about mixing up ingredients. Foodies enjoy everything that pumps up the experience of eating!
Vinegar is nothing salad and the other way around. Giuseppe’s 5-star sweet-and-sour goodness is to be instantly appreciated by every foodie that knows what’s up!
Bone-in Ham From Spain
Mouth-watering to look at and even more delicious on the palate! Ham bones are a common purchase even amongst professional chefs. Most we see them in Thanksgiving and Christmas movies, and there’s a reason for that.
It took 12-16 months to cure this piece with Mediterranean Sea salt, so it would expunge all nitrates. The ham bone will stay fresh for six months before your foodie friend gains the proper courage to unpack it!
Bread Shape Pillow
Apart from the special attention paid to meals, there’s pretty much no other sign you enter a foodie’s home. A pizza clock? Burger buns pillows? There’s none of that!
To bring some flavor to your foodie homie’s living room, consider giving this fresh 40-inch bread pillow that is destined to draw tons of laughs and make a few tummies rumble.
Wondering what to eat? So many options and so many cuisines to get lost in. If so, the foodie dice is your solution. No, it’s not a foodie board game, but it lets the hand of destiny decide what you’re eating for tonight.
It comes in both a vegetarian-vegan and meat variants. What’s it gonna be tonight: rolling sushi or tortilla wraps? Let’s first roll the dice to find out!
Spicy Hot Sauce Gift Set
Hot sauces with a purpose. We’ve touched upon the fun of making your own hot sauces with the many Hot Sauce Kits we’ve featured on Quokkadot. And although these come ready to enjoy Fuego makes the effort to give back to the planet by planting 5 trees for every crate you buy. Inside the very crate you’ll find classic Hot Hive Spicey Honey, Himalayan Ghost Salt, and Habanero.
Wireless Smart Meat Thermometer
I bet you can’t tell how well cooked your steak is without cutting it. Truth be told, aesthetics plays a huge role in enjoying a meal to the fullest. And even if you’re not an expert chef wouldn’t you be happy to make beautiful plates of literal eye-candy!
To make your food look as fine as it does on TV, take a look Ymmly’s Smart Meat thermometer: it works on all type of meat (fish included) and connects via Bluetooth to their original app!
Rare Japanese White Rice
Just a few seconds ago, the word ‘rice’ spoke very little to you. Nothing out of the ordinary. I mean, how many of us pay attention to what rice we buy? I know I don’t!
A foodie, however, treats his products like collectables – it’s quite a tough goodbye when it’s time to cook! The Uonuma Koshikikari rice is the most famous and premium sort of rice in Japan which accounts for 1% of the total cultivated amount in the country of the rising sun.
Your foodie friends will know what’s up in the rice world but won’t suspect someone will actually be crazy enough to buy them a pack. Be that crazy friend!
Funny Food T-Shirt
Pho is traditionally known as Vietnamese noodles which later became the first part of the phrase ‘Pho Sho’, or ‘For Sure’. Back to the shirt itself, it’s quite standard: 90% cotton, 10% polyester, and safe to machine wash. May your foodie friends wear this shirt as a badge of pride.
DIY BBQ Sauce Making Kit
If sauces with purpose is not up your alley, then stick to tradition and buy this charming Artisan DIY BBQ Sauce Making Kit. It contains three essential BBQ recipes: mustard-based, tomato-based, and mop sauce.
Your foodie pal will be delighted to find the asortiment of all-natural ingredients: crushed red pepper, liquid smoke, onion garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and more!

Bacon Gift Pack
In likewise fashion to the beef jerky crate, the bacon gift pack offers awesome gourmet choices for meat lovers and not only.
What looks like a regular bacon-themed box actually is a six-course meal: 1 pack dry cured bacon, bacon hot sauce & bacon salt, bacon jerky, Vosges Dark Chocolate bar, and Sir Francis bacon brittle with chocolate or peanut.
Bring some diversity in the meals of bacon lovers with the quite playful Bacon Gift Pack!
Smart Air Fryer Toaster Oven
An air fryer… toaster… and an oven… what? Here’s a neat little powerhouse to help you prepare a variety of meals in an instant.
Its versatile presets will allow you airfry with 85% less oil, roast and dehydrate pizza, toast, bake, and ferment! A lot to unpack for sure. Its large 30L capacity easily accommodates an entire chicken.
And just like any other cooking tech featured on Quokkadot, this handy all-in-one machine comes with 100 original recipes you can access via the VeSync app.
Premium Unfiltered Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Your average Joe won’t appreciate the rich polyphenol taste of Governor Premium’s unrefined cold pressed olive oil extracted from the olives of island Corfu.
You don’t have to be an expert gastronome to know of the many health benefits coming with olive oil consumption. To save you time: your heart, digestive tract, and immune system will thank you.
If you want to boost your salad or pasta’s nutritional value spend an extra buck on top-shelf stuff. This is such a luxury food gift for him.
If the featured picture doesn’t make you smile, we don’t know what will. If you’re going to go as far as buying a bread pillow, why not go for the full set with a burrito blanket.
Its broad functionality can make it a beach blanket, travel blanket, campaign blanket, tablecloth, rug, bed or sofa cover. It’s comfy, soft, and quite sizable at 71 x 71 x 0.01 inches, which allows enough real estate to fit most of your everyday errands.
Exotic Jerky Bouquet
If a jerky gift box feels too uninspired and boring take a look at this playful jerky bouquet of a variety of flavours: Elk, Buffalo, Venison (Mild), and Venison (Hot).
Female recipients will be in awe at this unconventional bouquet while males will wonder how on earth you found the key to their hearts. Indeed, the gifting experience is like no other!
If your friend’s too embarrassed to put in on before bed then it would make an amazing Halloween costume. The Pepperoni Pizza Pyjamas is machine washable polyester.
Its zipper mechanism allows you to jump in and out with ease, and the additional hood makes gives you the chance to wear it on a drizzly day. Make someone laugh by giving them quite the practical gift!
Meat & Cheese Gift Box
Meat and cheese are one of the most popular appetisers. They go well with a glass of chilled whiskey or chill wine, and can be a true lifesaver in case of unexpected guests. That is we at Quokkadot have landed on Hicker Farm’s XL gift box.
It has all the goodies a proper party needs: 10 oz Signature Beef Summer Sausages, 6 oz Smoked Gouda Blend, 6 oz Harvest Cheddar Blend, 4 oz Smoked Cheddar Blend, 4 oz Farmhouse Cheddar, 4 oz Mission Jack Blend, 4 oz Creamy Swiss Blend.
Some condiments like Sweet Hot Mustards, Golden Toasted Crackers, Strawberry bon bons and much more!
Caviar Gift Set
Feeling more boujee than originally expected? Perhaps is meat and cheese isn’t the drill of your guests and they want some more flair to it. OLMA’s gift set is here to do just that.
Coming with Kaluga Royal Caviar, Siberian Osetra Aurora Caviar, Hackleback Caviar and Paddlefish Caviar, this gift set is down to satisfy even the most refined tastebuds.
Reap the health benefits of caviar as you pontificate with your VIP friends over the very minor issues that take up entire conversations.
Cocktail and Margarita Machine
Like we said earlier, foodie people don’t just enjoy food. The setting, the people, the drinks – everything goes into a great eating experience. However, sometimes you’re just stuck at home and there’s nobody to call to catch a few margaritas.
The solution – a Margarita Machine. Though mixology is a science in its own right, and we just want a nice cocktail on the spot, the Margarita Machine works with a coffee-machine mechanism – just insert a capsule of your choosing – Long Island Iced Tea, Sex on the Beach, Cosmopolitan, you named it – and let it do its magic.
Coming from the central terrains of Spain, in the province of La Mancha where Don Quixote once trod on horseback with his sidekick Sancho Panza, is the exotic flavour of this Saffron.
Saffron has mainly been recognised in Italian cuisine which popularised the use of this red spice. However, Saffron plantations stretch as far away as Central Asia. It goes on meat, pasta, and whatever else your palate desires.
Jerky Heart Gift Box
Romance just got a whole lot tastier. This, along with the jerky bouquet, is what the male version of Valentine’s Day looks like.
It’s a feast of an entire range of flavors like Classic Garlic Jerky, Ghost Pepper, Habanero, Black Pepper, Root Beer and Root Beer Habanero, Whiskey Maple, Honey Bourbon, and, finally, Sesame Ginger. A sappy, yet funny, surprise for a man who loves his jerky!
Grilling Spice Set
Not a gift anyone would expect. Most of time we feature meal-prep kits: from hot sauce kits to dumpling makers, but never have we found a Spice Set that appealing.
Well, time for a change. In this spice set you can expect 20 unique BBQ rubs to season your steaks, ribs, and burgers with. Some of the more popular ones are Lime Chipotle, Chili Rosemary, Jalapeno, Black Cajun, Chili Garlic, and Memphis Cayenne. Get grilling with an all new set of spices!
Take Him For Food Hopping
If you haven’t found your perfect gift so far then we would suggest taking him out to his favorite venue. Maybe a Thai restaurant or a Spanish buffet.
Doing some background research on your friends so you would know where to take them is far better than blindly choosing a gift you assume they may like. So start digging and book a table at his favorite place!
Unique Food Socks
If your friend’s got an appetite for food-themed clothing, then we propose bundling the Pho-Sho shirt we this amazing pair of meal socks.
Choose between burger, fries and beer for your socks’ look and don’t forget to pick a size! Make your foodie friend smile (and a bit hungry) every time he puts his socks on!
Vintage Popcorn Maker
Can we unanimously agree that this shouldn’t be just a foodie gift! Reminisce in bygone times of childhood when going to the cinema was an event to keep you happy for weeks ahead, and the popcorn was the most gourmet dish you ever got served.
The 8 oz kettle of this vintage-looking machine can pop up to 32 cups of popcorn per batch. Its tempered safety glass resist scratches and the pumping heat in case you’re worried about popcorning exploding everywhere like in a Tom and Jerry episode. It’s totally safe and extremely savouring.
Smokeless Indoor Grill
Summer’s here, and that means long nights of crispy steaks, piping sausages, tender ribs, and the fragrant grill smoke reaching for the heavens in elegant dance… oh, you live in an apartment… and there’s no patio… Well, that’s a bummer, but thankfully we have technology on our side.
To enjoy the abovementioned sausages, steaks, ribs, or whatever’s on the grill menu, you should look no further than Techwood’s smokeless grill!
Tipsy Elves are known for their innovative designs when it comes to bringing character to T-shirts. Most of the time you’ll find yourself buying Hawaiian shirts the colors of which are bit… too much sometimes.
Elves takes this issue under serious consideration by making a series of pastel-colored shirts that maintain subtlety yet keep you vibrant!
Fresh Baklava Box
And finally, to top it all off we’ve selected this marvellous boxset of Baklava treats that will make your heart melt. Take your senses on a trip to the Mediterranean and the Middle East with the sugary delight of Baklava.
This set screams ‘premium’ from the box to the very last layer of pastry. For foodies with a sweet tooth and a thing for The East, a slice of Baklava will cut it!
