Gifting season is upon us and this year, we’ve put together a series of gift guides with creatives from the ONA community across four genres – fashion, food, travel and tech. From bar essentials and cutlery to porcelain teacups and cookbooks, here are 16 gifts for your favorite foodie.
JOANN PAI | PARIS-BASED FOOD BLOGGER + TRAVELER
Lomelino’s Pies, Cookbook: Everybody loves pies, especially for the holidays! This cookbook is by one of my favorite food photographers, Linda Lomelino. The photos are gorgeous and recipes are delicious.
Miyabi, Birchwood Japanese Knife: I love a good knife set in my kitchen, especially one as beautiful as this. And it makes all the holiday cooking easier!
West Elm, Deco Barware Collection: A stylish gold and marble cocktail kit for your holiday cocktail parties.
ONA, Bowery in Antique Cognac: I love the vintage look and it’s the perfect size for walking around the city. I just got the Clifton backpack so I can carry a few extra lenses and a laptop for an upcoming trip.
TIFFANY HOWARD | SEATTLE BASED FOOD BLOGGER + PHOTOGRAPHER
Sarah Kersten, Pottery Nesting Covered Bowls: Having worked in a tiny kitchen for the last few years, I’ve come to really love objects that combine form and function. These bowls are not only gorgeous, but they keep the food hot until you’re ready to serve it, they are perfect for transporting food, and they nest for easy and efficient storage.
Yield Design, Ceramic French Press in gray: Have you seen a more beautiful french press? It’s simple, pretty and the perfect gift for the friend who loves coffee.
Facture Goods, Matte Black Plates: I love having a collection of interesting plates, specifically for serving desserts when I’m entertaining. I also love the matte finish and the warmth of these handmade plates.
ONA, the Brixton messenger in antique cognac: I can’t say enough good things about this bag. It’s beautiful, functional, and holds all my gear with a lot of pockets for organizing cables, cards, etc. I’ve also had my eye on the leather Clifton backpack in black, it’s on my Christmas list this year!
ALANA KYSAR | LOS ANGELES-BASED FOOD BLOGGER + PHOTOGRAPHER
William Sonoma, Le Creuset Jacobsen Salt Crock and Jacobsen Salt Set: This is the salt I always reach for to finish a dish and I love the ease of keeping it in an open crock.
William Sonoma, Staub Cast-Iron Essential French Oven: Every cook needs a great pan—this Staub cast-iron French oven is one my absolute favorites.
William Sonoma, Fish Spatula: This is more than just a spatula for fish—I use it for everything from eggs to meat.
ONA, the Savannah crossbody bag: One word: OBSESSED. This bag is big enough to hold a DSLR, but pretty enough to double as your everyday bag.
DANIELA CONSTANTINI | SWITZERLAND-BASED FOOD + LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHER
Notary Ceramics, Dinner Plates: I mean just take a look at the amazing pieces they create, and you’ll understand why I want to have a few in my kitchen.
Herriot Grace, Stoneware & Porcelain Tea Cups: I have been in love with this brand since I discovered them a few years back. Lately, I have been more and more drawn to drinking tea, and naturally, I want to drink it from really gorgeous teacups.
Erickson Wood Works, Food Photography Surface: As much as I love to shoot food photos or flat lays on actual tables, I don’t have enough room in my apartment to accommodate all of the tables I would need. I really like this brand. Their surfaces are sturdy and incredibly nice looking. They are the best option for storage, handling and textured photos. I am in love with the cement finish (and they include an additional finish) and the dark and creamy concrete, I can’t decide between the two.
ONA, The Hudson backpack: This backpack has been on my wish list since its release. Not just because it’s so gorgeous but because I have learned that having my photography gear in a backpack is much more practical than carrying it all in a messenger bag. The Hudson backpack looks really comfortable and I love the various compartments.
