The new “in” thing is to give the gift of an experience rather than a physical gift. With the 10 Crazy Good Food Gifts for Kids of All Ages, you get both! Let’s be realistic, all kids (from your littles to the college-aged) love to open gifts, ok – I do too, lol. The issue is what to get them that isn’t going to just clutter up their room or sit collecting dust on their shelf. Give the gift of an experience like cooking (either something new or a favorite), either with you or on their own depending on their age.
Some of these would also make great stocking stuffers as well!
10 Crazy Good Food Gifts for Kids of All Ages
Any of Epicure’s Meal Solutions ($3*): Taco, Beef Stroganoff, Mac & Cheese, etc. These are great on their own, used as a stocking stuffer, or grab a couple you think your kiddo would like.
Dip & Chips: Guacamole Dip Mix ($8) and their favorite tortilla chips!! This idea would also work with some of our other dip mixes (Creamy Ranch, 3 Onion, etc).
Tea & Mug: Sleeping Beauty Tea ($12.50) (caffeine-free) – your kiddo can relax with a cup before bed or after a hard exam. Great as is or as a stocking stuffer!
Dessert Basket: Summer Berry Sweet Dip ($9), GF Brownie Mix ($4.50**), Chocolate Pudding Mix ($4.50**). Put in a gift bag, gift box, gift basket, etc. All of this could also fit in a stocking as well and would be great for your sweet tooth lover. All are gluten-free, sugar conscious, and made from clean ingredients!!
Movie Night: Multipurpose Steamer ($44), popcorn kernels, Creamy Ranch Dip Mix ($8), coupon code for Red Box Rental or a movie they have been wanting! A healthier version of microwave popcorn and the Creamy Ranch Dip Mix will flavor the popcorn without adding a bunch of “junk” to it.
Budding Baker Kit: Perfect Petite Pan ($20), GF Brownie Mix ($4.50**), Chocolate Truffle Sweet Dip ($8). The Petite Pan makes 30 individual servings of any 8×8 pan mix so it’s perfect for the young baker!!
Dip Lovers: Extraordinary Trio Collection ($24) – Lemon Dilly, CCB, and 3 Onion. Add some of their favorite dippable like crackers, chips, pretzels, bagel chips, etc. Great as is or as a stocking stuffer!
Pizza Kit: Make GF pizza at home!! Gluten-Free Pizza Crust ($13), Balsalmic Vinaigrette Dressing Mix ($9.50), and Marinara Sauce Mix ($8). Just add your favorite toppings for an awesome pizza night at home!! Use the dressing mix to season the crust (not necessary but tasty) and then make the dressing and pour over a side salad to complete the meal.
Summer Berry Sweet Dip Mix ($9) – just mix with yogurt (can use dairy-free) and eat as is or add some berries for a healthy sweet treat! Great as is or as a stocking stuffer!
So what do you think about giving the gift of a foodie experience? I love that it is also an actual gift they can open as well as use (I’m practical that way, lol).
These are just ideas or launching points. I would love to help you find the perfect gift for your kiddo! I know my teens would love any of the chocolate items (duh, chocolate), Mac & Cheese, Creamy Ranch Dip Mix, Guacamole Dip Mix, and many others (they love food, basically all teens are just eating machines!).
