This Food Blogger Gift Guide 2018 is full of ideas for gifting the blogger in your life, or even for buying yourself while the deals are on! This post contains affiliate links. If you click on a link and make a purchase, I will receive a portion of the sale. Thank you for supporting my business in this way. All opinions are my own.
It’s a day for the food bloggers! While this list is aimed at food bloggers, I know a lot of other niches can benefit from some food blogging knowledge, just like I can occasionally benefit from some lifestyle blogging advice. It’s all connected and the more we work to better ourselves the more we’ll grow.
Lots of places offer deals the week after Christmas on things bloggers use every day. These would be great to buy the blogger in your life if you know what their needs are, or a great way to save money on your business if you’re a budget conscious blogger (aren’t we all??).
Food Blogger Gift Guide 2018
The vast majority of bloggers I know do most of their work on a laptop. One of the perks of working from home is getting to sit on the couch, right? Keep it comfy is a highly functional lap desk.
Unfortunately they just closed enrollment for the year, but get on the mailing list and they’ll let you know when they’re running deals or opening enrollment.
Tasty Food Photography
This tends to be the gold standard of food photography. Even if you’re not a food blogger, chances are you’ll need to take photos of food at some point in your career and this book will give you all the info you need to get a quality foot in the door.
You created a business out of nothing and created a career where there didn’t used to be one. I love the symbolism of this necklace in regards to how hard you’ve worked!
Simple, stylish props can make a big difference in photos. I have these bowls which are great for salads, soups, and pasta. Gold flatware is still popular, or consider some grey linens, wood or concrete background, or small plates.
I still write all my recipes with pen and paper. If you know another notebook person, grab them one with a motivating message to chase their dreams, no matter how scary.
I’m embarrassed to say I’ve never purchased a camera strap, but I definitely aspire to! It somehow always gets pushed to the back of my priorities, which makes it perfect for gifting. This one is so pretty and simple.
I’ve had my eyes peeled for a good planner for next year. This one incorporates an editorial calendar that will help you keep your content organized as well as your life.
Camera lenses tend to feel very personal to me, so be sure to check in with whoever you’re gifting to make sure the one you’re picking out is a good fit. The 50mm tends to be the gold standard starter lens for food photography and flatly.
Get your pies insta-ready with way less work by using this impression mat to create beautiful designs with your pie dough.
I use Tailwind to schedule pins to Pinterest, which has allowed me to grow my Pinterest traffic without spending all day on the platform. You can also utilize tribes to try get other bloggers to share your content.
Let everybody know you’re a boss lady, because you should be proud of what you’ve accomplished this year!
