Top 5 food-related Christmas gifts for Korean foodies


It’s the gift-giving season once again, but we at Korean BBQ Online are not too worried about what possible gifts to give to our buddies who are also Korean foodies. As you all know, there’s not a lot of things in this world that makes a foodie’s heart leap for joy than – what else – food.

Fret no more because we are here to address your gift-shopping woes. Here are 5 awesome food-related gift ideas to give to your pals who just can’t get enough of Korean food:

 1.  Fruit baskets

Fruits are part of almost any Korean’s diet, so giving baskets filled with assorted fruits will always be warmly appreciated. Don’t be shy in putting in some mangoes, bananas, pineapples, plums, or even kiwis in those baskets. Nuts and even dried fruits can also be included into the mix.

 2.  Tea

We all know the health benefits that drinking tea provides, and Koreans will be one of the first people to attest to this. Give them an opportunity to have more memorable tea-drinking experiences by giving them boxes of tea in different flavours. Persimmon and ginger seem to be the top favourites!

 3.  Indoor grill

Korean BBQ enthusiasts will just hug you right away if you decide to give them an indoor grill. Now you’ll give them a chance to host their own Korean BBQ feasts (and you’ll be the first one to be invited, that’s for sure) or just have small, intimate lunches and dinners right at the comforts of their own homes! Korean BBQ restaurants can be costly, and the weather can be unpredictable. But because of your precious gift, they can now grill their meats whenever they want to.

 4.  Lunchboxes or food bento boxes for the kids

Korean’s love for food definitely starts at an early age, and one way to please both Korean parents and kids this holiday season is to give them lunchboxes as gifts. Lunchboxes will somehow encourage parents to prepare food for their kids in a creative and awesome way. What a way to foster a parent-child relationship!

 5.  A book of Korean recipes

The Korean foodies you know will rejoice even further if you give them a cookbook that details the steps on how they can whip up their favourite Korean dishes. What a way to unleash the inner chefs in them! It also doesn’t help that the images of the dishes featured in these cookbooks are just divine.

This list is far from being exhaustive, so we want to know your food-related gift ideas for the holidays. What food-related gifts do you think will make Korean foodies shriek with glee?v
