It’s (relatively) easy to come up with kitchen gadgets and goodies that you can buy as holiday gifts for foodie friends and family – especially if you can get an opportunity to sneak around his or her kitchen when no one is watching to see what s/he might need. But in search of something a little less obvious, I came up with a few foodie t-shirt ideas that will make equally great holiday gifts. I already checked off a few names from my own list with some of these:
Cookies just love milk is one of my favorites (I’m even giving one away in my gingerbread cookie contest) because we all know that cookies and milk are just perfectly – and irresistably - made for each other. Hot dogs, on the other hand, are made for both ketchup and mustard, and this tee, entitled “Adultery,” embodies the classic dilemma of which is the better topping for a dog.
The Tasty Table- a stand-in for the periodic table – lists good-tasting food, drinks and ingredients from Al (alcohol) to Ys (yeast). It won’t help you pass any chem tests, but it might inspire a few new recipes.
Johnny Cupcakes always has great designs, including a few exclusively for the holidays. Frosting the Snowman is an amazing (and tasty) play on Frosty. It’s hard to go wrong with their classic logo, either, so long as you are a cupcake fan. Going in a completely different – by which I mean non-baking - direction, Alton Brown’s Science, It’s What’s for Dinner might be a good idea for the cook who is not quite as into cupcakes as the rest of us.
I know that there are a lot more out there, including a ton of faux-retro product logo tees, so if you have any favorites (or want to leave a hint for anyone looking for gift ideas), feel free to mention them in the comments below!
