Professional and amateur chefs are passionate about the culinary arts. When shopping for a chef, consider a novelty item that plays tribute to his passion. If the first stop on your shopping trip is to the culinary speciality store, which is packed with cooking items, look for something a little different and out of the ordinary.

Exotic Spices

Spice up the gifting by giving exotic spices or herbs. Chefs enjoy experimenting with new tastes and flavours. Visit a spice speciality store or shop online, looking for vendors that deal in exotic spices. Instead of selecting the standard herbs or spices, found in most spice cabinets or pantries, look for something you've never heard of before, or select a spice used in the chef's favourite ethnic recipes.

Custom Apron

Aprons are a standard uniform for a chef. Create a novel apron to show off the chef's playful side. While you can purchase a ready-made apron, custom make the apron so that it is one of a kind. You can either hand-make and sew the apron, buy a plain apron and add unique art by ironing on a transfer that you print from your home computer, or make one on a print-on-demand website, such as, or

Theme Jewelry

Visit the jewellery store and look for a culinary themed charm for a bracelet or necklace. Small gold charms that resemble a set of knifes might seem like an odd gift for some, yet for the chef, whose knifes are a well cared for tool of the trade, such a charm will likely put a smile on her face. Instead of something whimsical, give a traditional locket and engrave a culinary saying, such as "cooking is love".

Cooking Tool and Accessories

Stroll through the culinary cooking store looking for interesting cooking tools and accessories. Purchase a variety of small items and package them in a wicker picnic basket or a large gourmet-cooking pan. Add a few practical items to the basket, such as heat resistant spatulas or a sharpening stone for kitchen knives.
