Now that most of the boxes are unpacked in my new apartment, it’s about time to amp up the decor factor. My plan is to focus on one room at a time, starting with my favorite, the kitchen. I’m thinking about adding small instances of bold colors, like water bottles and cake stands, and some texture via patterned fruit bowls and wire-framed letters. I plan to hang those E-A-T letters above the stove (are you allowed to hang things above stoves??), not that I really need any visual reminders to eat or anything like that. I’m pretty, pretty good at it last time I checked. And speaking of eating, who doesn’t love a little corn seasoning in the summer time, am I right??
Now that it’s officially December, I need to start buying gifts for my loved ones and STAT. I’ve made the executive decision (yes, I make executive decisions for me’self) to divide it up by category as opposed to price range because a.) I majored in Journalism and English and I don’t understand numbers; b.) I have no patience to search for items >$100 (or is it <$100? – I can’t remember which way the crocodile mouth goes); and c.) I’m a bit dyslexic and afraid I’d find an item that costs $52 and place it in the “under $25” category and then WordPress would delete my blog for life.
So…onto foodie gifts. To me, a foodie is not only someone who loves food but also celebrates everything relating to food, whether it be finding joy in an amazing cookbook or having a mild obsession with colorful teapots. So with that in mind, I tried to pick out gifts that any foodie would be sure to eat up this holiday season.
