It’s time for our last gift guide of the year, gifts for foodies under $100! This is a list of bigger ticket items including some really nice practical tools and equipment that will last a lifetime, if not generations, and items that are likely to have been on someone’s want list all year long. So if you want to go all out or or have someone extra special to shop for, hopefully, this list will give you some inspiration and make gift-giving a little easier this year!
Prices and availability of the items on this list may change. Everything listed below was under $100 at the time of publication.

Gifts For Food Lovers Under $100
Lodge 6-Quart Dutch Oven – Every kitchen should have a Dutch oven. It’s the most versatile piece of cookware you’ll own and this enameled cast-iron Dutch oven will last generations. It comes in several colors and is guaranteed to get used over and over!
Raclette Table – A few years ago I went to a holiday gathering where we all sat around a raclette table and ate delicious grilled food topped with melted cheese. What more could a girl want? It was SO much fun and now I think every party should have a raclette table. THIS is a fun gift for the entertainer in your life. (Read more about what raclette is here.)
Truff Hot Sauce Gift Set – This indulgent gift set is perfect for anyone who likes the earthy flavor of truffles AND hot sauce. …But they also have gift sets of truffle-flavored sauces and oil if your truffle lover doesn’t like spicy.
Lodge 5-Piece Set – You aren’t going to get more gift-giving bang for your buck than this 5-piece cast iron cookware set! Two frying pans, one Dutch oven, AND a griddle?! This set is an incredible value and the gift receiver will be very intrigued by what could be in that extra heavy box under the tree. 😅
Kitchenaid Hand Mixer – Kitchenaid stand mixers are kind of a status symbol in the culinary world, but if you don’t have hundreds to blow on the countertop version, this hand-held mixer will still provide plenty of power and reliability to make all the baked goods your giftee’s heart desires.
De’Longhi Espresso Machine – We’re all trying to make more coffee at home instead of hitting the drive-through, and this is the perfect entry-level espresso machine. De’Longhi is a name I trust and I owned one of their machines myself for many years before handing it down to a friend who still uses it daily. They’re built to last!
3-Quart Covered Casserole – Second only to a Dutch oven, this covered casserole will be one of your giftee’s most used pieces of cookware. It can be used on the stovetop like a deep skillet, or in the oven like a casserole dish. You can use it for just about anything and the enameled cast iron construction will last a lifetime!
Ninja Blender – If a Vitamix isn’t in your budget, this Ninja blender is a great alternative. We have this blender at the Budget Bytes studio and it’s quite powerful and large enough to make blended soups or crepe batters. ;)
AeroGarden Harvest – If you know someone who doesn’t have a yard, or maybe even a windowsill with decent natural light, this AeroGarden can bring a lot of joy to their life. Not only will these herbs make their homemade food taste amazing, but growing plants can just be good for the soul. :)
