This lovingly curated list of 35+ of the best cookbook gift ideas is perfect for gifting to the cook in your life!
There are cookbooks for everyone, from special diets to seasonal, easy cooking for two. Plus, I’ve paired some simple cooking gifts for inspiration.
Are you a reader of cookbooks? Do you know a cooking enthusiast? I collect and read cookbooks like I do a good novel, the prettier the better. Sometimes I like a specialty cookbook, other times I just want a general all around great cookbook!
Originally posted in 2020, I update it annually to keep it relevant and fresh. I am always adding new cookbooks, best-selling cookbooks, unique cookbooks, diet-specific cookbooks, and much more. From Instant Pot to Air Fryer, Mexican Cuisine to the Barefoot Contessa, The Pioneer Woman, Nastasha’s Kitchen and so much more.
Some of these are my favorite cookbooks; they are my go-to when deciding “what’s for dinner” and others are on the best-seller cookbook list of all time, or just for 2023.
Gift Pairing with Cookbooks
On many of the 35 + best-selling cookbooks, I have provided some gift-pairing ideas to start the thought process. For instance, if someone is receiving their first Air Fryer, then you might want to give them a cookbook on Beginner Air Fryer recipes.
No matter your budget, there is something for everyone! Many of these cookbooks are on sale for Black Friday and Cyber Monday!
