The Foodie Birthday Gift Guide

It's that time again- my birthday is here and {lucky me} in my family we 
celebrate birthday's all month long! So even though the day has technically passed {shhh!}
 I want to share some of my favorite Foodie Themed Birthday Gifts with y'all. 
In this list you will not find your traditional cookbooks and birthday cards.
Instead I chose fun and affordable gift ideas from small businesses and also items available for purchase from bigger retailers like Amazon and Walmart. 

Comment below and let me know what you think and be sure to scroll down for a giveaway to win my new favorite glitter mug from Sip and Sparkle
My birthday trip to Baton Rouge was a blast! Stay tuned for my review of Stadium at L'Auberge Casino. The firecracker dessert was a showstopper!
We had a great time checking out the Baton Rouge Zoo
 and the Farmers Market with my parents.
We enjoyed a delicious family meal at Bistro Byronz. 
All dressed up for dinner out at The Rum House in Baton Rouge. 
Not a foodie gift but I love my new princess sneakers from my parents. 

My Foodie Birthday Gift Guide

A fun collection of affordable gift ideas for the food lovers in your life!

1. Glitter Coffee Mug

For those of you that follow me on Instagram you know I LOVE coffee mugs. I used to collect aprons, then cookbooks {ok I still collect cookbooks}, and now I am all about cute mugs 
{and coffee too}. 
I came across Sip and Sparkle {see note below} on Instagram and once I saw her adorable mugs I knew I had to have one! It;s hard to choose just one, but for my first order I got a custom made Mom Life themed mug in my favorite colors. Don't you love the glitter bottom!? 
She also makes travel mugs, mason jars, and awesome girl boss themed shirts {I have 2}. 

NOTE: Unfortunately, this seller never came through with the giveaway we had agreed on and has since blocked me from contacting her. I am not one to bad mouth and I love working with small businesses so this is very disappointing. I no longer recommend Sip and Sparkle and I suggest you search on Etsy for other stores that make custom mugs! 

2. Apron

I met the awesome Jennifer Janz at the Everything Food Conference this year in Salt Lake City. 
She owns The Food Styling School and I won this amazing Sexy Food apron in a food styling competition! Check out her site here: http://www.thefoodstylingschool.com/

3. Ice Cream Cups

Oh the cute things you can find in the dollar section!
I love these ice cream cups and wooden spoons from Target.
you could package these up with some sprinkles and homemade chocolate sauce for a
 DIY ice cream sundae kit
I also find cute summer themed dessert items in Michaels dollar section and at Dollar Tree.

4. Desk Sign

Every good Southern lady loves Sweet Tea, right?!
This small square sign sits on my desk and always puts a smile on my face. 
I found it at a boutique in Gulf Breeze, FL but I have seen similar at Hobby Lobby and Michaels Craft Store. 

5. Oven Mitts

I recently said buh-bye to my old and dirty oven mitts and when I spotted this colorful set at Walmart I knew they were meant to be in my kitchen! Even better they are the Pioneer Woman brand {the Flea Market design} and y'all know she is my favorite blogger!

5. Food for Foodies

So it goes without saying that we foodies LOVE food.
Food is always a good gift especially something unique and indulgent.
I like to stock up on decadent treats at Traders Joes when I am in Baton Rouge. 
You can never go wrong with chocolate!
Their Dark Chocolate Crisps {think Pringles but chocolate} are my favorite.
Also Balance Bars {who I am teaming up with this month} sent me a few boxes of their new chocolate protein bars and I am loving their Dark Chocolate Pecan Turtle flavor!

6. Fun Bottled Drinks

I love gifting local bottled beers, like Abita, which is brewed in nearby Covington, LA and fun sodas.
I found this Nicol Kola at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and World Market has delicious Huckleberry Soda that is my husband's favorite! 

7.  Food Games

I first saw these hilarious Food Fortunes cards at Urban Outfitters.
They are a playful take on tarot cards and help you to decide "what's for dinner tonight?
You can also order them online on Amazon here

8. Foodie Shirts

I have seen these funny Brunch themed shirts all over Instagram and Etsy.
This soft and slouchy shirt was a steal for $3 and guess where I found it at y'all?!
My new favorite {and comfiest} Southern inspired shirt!
I can't wait to rock this while enjoying- you guessed it- Beignets and Cafe Au Lait - in Nola this weekend! #shopsft
