15 Best Gifts for Your Food Network-Obsessed Friend

Who doesn’t love a good, well-timed Food Network binge? For me, it’s on a Sunday afternoon when I’m between projects. Or, I’ll have it on in the background while I’m assembling all the furniture I ordered from Amazon. Because what’s more calming than the smooth, soothing timbre of Barefoot Contessa star Ina Garten‘s voice while your blood pressure rises out of pure frustration? The point is, we’re all, for the most part, fans of the Food Network channel — whether casual, like me, or more die-hard, like all the folks who wouldn’t dare miss an episode of Beat Bobby Flay or Chopped. And it’s those people in our lives who deserve a reward for such rigid, uncompromising, unwavering dedication to the Food Network channel and all its chefs with such addictive, charming personalities, including Giada De Laurentiis, Bobby Flay, Ree Drummond, and the aforementioned Garten.

The best part of shopping for Food Network-obsessed friends is there’s no shortage of incredible Food Network finds. From a De Laurentiis’ gift basket found on Williams Sonoma’s website to hilarious Food Network products your friends are likely dying to have in their home, here are 15 gifts they’ll love.

For the friend who wants to shop with Garten.

The ultimate Garten gift box

Gift your Garten-obsessed fan with Garten-approved ingredients, including Maille old style whole grain dijon mustard, Fini balsamic vinegar of Modena, Rao’s marinara sauce, Nielsen-Massey vanilla, Lindt chocolate, De Cecco penne frigate pasta, Urbani white truffle butter, Cipriani tagliarelle dried pasta, Rice Select texmati rice, Pernigotti cocoa powder, and much, much more.

‘Store bought is fine’

If you know, then you know.

‘Jeff-ray’ magnet

In search of a stocking stuffer for your Garten devotee? Look no further than this “Jeff-ray” magnet.

‘Ciao Bella’ mug

De Laurentiis wasn’t the only Food Network star to take part in the annual No Kid Hungry fundraising campaign by Williams Sonoma; Garten did, too, among others. You’ll feel good about purchasing the mug, too; 30 percent of each sale benefits the nonprofit.

De Laurentiis gift crate

Each De Laurentiis gift craft comes with vodka pasta sauce, pasta maccheroni pugliesi, a 12-inch wooden spoon and lemon ricotta cookie mix. In other words, it’s totally worth the money.

The Pioneer Woman cookbook

If you’re going to pick up a cookbook, then gift one of the newest cookbooks by a Food Network host: The New Frontier by Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. Released Oct. 22, this cookbook features 112 super-approachable recipes.

Slow cooker

Whether your friend already has one or has been meaning to get one for years, the Pioneer Woman’s floral-printed slow cooker is exactly what’s missing from her/his kitchen.


These blush-colored tea goblets from Drummond’s Pioneer Woman collection at Walmart are too pretty to pass up.

Or, maybe this Guy Fieri candle more accurately represents your friend’s obsession with the spiky-haired Food Network star.

Gift card

Replenish your friend’s Bobby’s Burger Palace fund with a gift card.
