We’ve never been fans of the term “foodie.” Truth is, most people love food. It’s one of our most basic pleasures. Still, we get it, some love food more than others. If you’re shopping for any of these people, this is the gift guide for men for you. Here are the best gifts to give the foodie (ugh) this year.


The Porthole Infuser

Used by one of the best bars in the world (The Aviary, if you were curious) and in the permanent collection at MoMA, the Porthole Infuser allows anyone to infuse their favorite drinks with anything they can think of.


Global G-2 8" Chef's Knife

Buying a Global knife was easily one of the best decisions we’ve ever made when it comes to kitchen hardware, but don’t just take our word for it—Anthony Bourdain also loves these knives.


John Boos Maple Wood Edge Grain Cutting Board

John Boos makes what is widely considered to be one of the best cutting boards on the market. Pick up one for each of your friends and they’ll love you almost as much as their knives do.


My Mother's Kitchen: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and the Meaning of Life

Part memoir, part culinary journey, My Mother’s Kitchen is an ode to author Peter Gethers’s mother while simultaneously being an introspective piece about what it takes to cut it in the kitchen.


Conker Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur

Made in Dorset, this liqueur combines the distillery’s spirit with cold-press coffee from Brazil and Ethiopia to create a spirit that’s delicious on its own or as part of a cocktail.


Lodge LCS3 Cast Iron 10" Chef's Skillet

Cast iron that will last a lifetime available at a price in line with a good sixer. What more could you want in a great foodie gift?


Hedley & Bennet (RED) Chef's Apron

Built for both culinary professionals and home chefs, this apron is perfect for everyone on your list.


wd~50: The Cookbook

Renowned chef Wylie Dufresne put together a cookbook with author Peter Meehan that tackles everything that made wd~50 one of New York’s most innovative and cutting-edge restaurants.


Amazon Echo (2nd Generation)

If you haven’t done cooking conversions or set timers using your voice, you have no idea what you’re missing. The all-new Amazon Echo revolutionizes cooking, which makes it a great gift for the foodie that’s impossible to cook for.


RBT Decanter

Every great meal deserves an even better bottle of wine, and there’s no better way to serve it than from one of these RBT Decanters.

Urban19 (1)

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
