Gift Ideas for the Food Blogger

40. Confession: I’m a food blogger who has no idea how to bake a potato without some instructione. Fortunately, there’s an apron with a cooking guide printed right on it to help with those pesky cooking tidbits. Cooking times, a kitchen glossary, conversions, temperatures…everything a food blogger needs right at their fingertips!

45. Photography is vital when it comes to food blogging. I use the Nikon D7000 for all the photos here on the blog, although there is a new version of this, the Nikon D7200. Most of my photos are shot with this 55mm f/1.8 lens. I also use this 40 mm f/2.8 macro for those super close-ups (see shot of chia seeds below).

46. I love my Wacom Tablet. I use it for writing/doodling on photos and for editing!

47. Every food blogger needs a good photo processing software. I use Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom for photo editing, and Adobe InDesign for the more designy things, like my Pinterest Pins. If your food blogger friend/family member already has these, gift them a VSCO film preset. These are a collection of presets that add some serious photo-processing oomph.

    1. Sarah says:

      Had I known there were such thing as pug and sloth tea diffusers I would have learned to like hot tea a long time ago! Haha and thanks for the foodie approval! I guess I can now say it’s “Officially Foodie Approved”!

    1. Sarah says:

      That’s one of my favorite items on here! 1 because I like to grow things and feel all responsible. And 2 because I feel like mushrooms would be hard to kill…and I have a tendency for killing any and all plants and flowers I attempt to grow..
