by Kaitlynn Fenley

It can be tough deciding on gifts for loved ones! If you have a person on your holiday gift list who loves fermentation, gut health, microbes, and food, here’s our gift guide for foodies to help you choose a gift they will love!

Dutch Oven: This is a kitchen essential for any foodie or sourdough baker! It’s a high-quality kitchen gift that will last a lifetime. If the person your gifting values lifelong function and doesn’t have a dutch oven, then this is the best gift.

Ceramic Kombucha Crock: Do you have a kombucha lover on your gift list? Do they love to brew kombucha at home? Consider getting them a handmade ceramic kombucha crock! This is a more expensive gift, but love it because you can support a small business and artist, as well as give the gift of art and kombucha!

The Fermented Foods Semester Course: Want to get someone a gift that keeps on giving… seriously, this one will be a gift for a lifetime. This is a science-based, information-packed course that will empower you with the skills to confidently and consistently craft health-promoting, sustainable, affordable fermented foods, and drinks.
Our online School of Fermentation is founded on fact-based food safety science and microbiology. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned fermentation enthusiast, this course is designed to help you understand the microbes and the science of fermentation so that you can consistently provide these nourishing foods for yourself and your family!

Beer Letterpress Coaster Set & Spinner Game: Have you thought about the beer enthusiast on your gift list? Think about getting them these handmade letterpress coasters that are also a fun spinner game! The spinner features 8 beer styles & descriptions: IPA, Porter, Brandy Wine, Pilsner, Brown Ale, Stout, Wheat, and Bock. Our friends over at Blackbird Letterpress have a TON of amazing letterpress cards for Christmas and the holidays too!

Eat Local Tee: This is a must, especially if you’re beloved foodie is from Louisiana and enjoys cajun food! T-shirts make wonderful and easy gifts and stocking stuffers. Purchasing this shirt also helps support our friend, Brad over at Tim’s Garage. We love local artists and our local small business community, so show them some love this year!

Foodie Jewelry: Let’s talk about the perfect gift for the foodie on your list who also loves jewelry! This Avocado necklace, handmade here in Baton Rouge by our friend Madeline at Mimosa Handcrafted is a great idea. She has a whole jewelry line called “Harvest” that you can check out here.

a Loaf of Homemade Sourdough: On a budget and want to make something for a foodie friend who loves fermentation? Bake them a loaf of sourdough! Here’s the recipe. If you don’t already have a sourdough starter, you’ll start prepping this gift about a week in advance. I give the gift of sourdough often, and people always love it.

The Hidden Half of Nature: This is a great gift for any food on your list who loves books, microbes, gardening, growing food and eating healthy. It’s one of my favorite books of all time. It takes a look at the interconnectedness of microbes, our food system, our planet, and ourselves.

Proofing Basket Set: When I was new to baking sourdough, this would have been the BEST gift to receive. This proofing basket set has two baskets, a scraper, and a bread lame. If you have a sourdough beginner baker on your gift list, hook them up with all the right tools in this set!

Mushroom Grow Kit: If someone loves food, microbes, and fermentation… then they probably would love to grow their own mushrooms too! This is a really affordable and educational gift.
