For the wide world of food gifts beyond the edible or kitchen-centric, Eater has you covered. This list is the place to look for stocking stuffers, co-worker Secret Santa presents, and delightful stuff to give yourself — to stock a bookshelf, adorn a jean jacket, or turn your cellphone into a waterfall of glitter and french fries.
Food Thoughts Pencil Set
Let your writing utensil speak for you. These pencils boldly display such wisdom as "MY SOULMATE IS A PIECE OF BREAD" and "I’VE NEVER MET A CHEESE I DIDN’T LIKE," which we’re pretty sure are undeniably truths.

The next time the person behind the counter at your local Chipotle asks you The Question, just flash them your keys. Amateur hour is over.
Knives & Ink
A follow-up to the pair’s first book together entitled Pen & Ink: Tattoos and the Stories Behind Them, Knives & Ink tackles the same topic, this time with a cohort of that notoriously tatted-up set: chefs. Personal stories, killer illustrations, and even some recipes to boot.

Pizza and cheeseburgers have never looked so glam. Shake up this phone case for an instant party — and don't be afraid if you drop it.

A good manicure makes all the difference. Gift these sushi nail decals to the friend who really really loves sashimi — or staging the perfect Instagram picture. The bright yellow banana and pineapple nail art is just as fun.
