If they’re a foodie, then why not get them some food? That might seem like a weird gift, but there are actually lots of food and snack hampers that come well-packaged and make great gifts. I have a friend from Italy who always complains that they can’t get good Italian food here in the UK, so I bought them an Italian food hamper from https://shop.diforti.com/product-category/gift/ last Christmas and they loved it!
If you feel like food gifts aren’t the way to go, you could always get them something food-related instead. For example, what about a recipe book? Or maybe some new cooking utensil that they’ve been wanting? Or even a voucher for a restaurant they love? As a foodie, those are all the kind of things I’d like, so perhaps your friend will too. I hope this helps!
