A DIY pho soup kit is another awesome soup-lover gift. And particularly, a Vietnamese soup lover gift!

One kit contains enough for 8 servings, so the recipient can enjoy their pho multiple times (or share it with you as the giver, of course).

#7 Cookbooks

The best soups in the world

This cookbook with more than 300 recipes of the best soups from around the world is the perfect gift for soup lovers who love to travel. They can travel around the world one soup at a time.

The soup book: 100 recipes season by season, ingredient by ingredient

I’m a big supporter of cooking by the season, which is why I love this cookbook. The recipient can make the perfect soup with in-season ingredients throughout the year.

Are you looking for fun gifts for soup lovers?

Then this utensil rest that’s shaped like a crab is perfect! Making soup usually involves quite a bit of stirring and simmering, so when the stirring is done, they can simply put the spoon in the crab’s hands until they need to stir again.


#9 French onion soup bowls

Hmm, which soup lover doesn’t love a good French onion soup?

And it’s even better if you get it in a traditional French soup bowl, like these ones. They come in a pack of four and with a practical handle, so they are easy to serve to guests.


#10 Funny soup-themed shirt

This is one of the funniest soup gift ideas for people who love Vietnamese pho sho. The recipient can show their love for pho sho with this cool shirt.

If this is not the future, I don’t know what is. 

Seriously, can a gift for a soup lover get any better than this? 

A bowl they can put in the microwave to heat their soup safely. But that’s not it. This one also comes with a phone holder!

That way they can devour their favorite dish while enjoying a TV show or movie.


#12 Wall art

Are you looking for soup lover gifts for someone’s home?

Then this poster of pho is perfect. It’s a great housewarming gift for people who love Vietnam and pho (obviously).


#13 Online soup cooking class

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”.

If you want to give a soup lover the ultimate gift, then teaching them how to make the best soups themselves is the absolute best gift.

And since you’re probably not a Masterchef yourself, check out Udemy to find online soup classes from actual Masterchefs. They will teach the recipient the basics of a good soup, so they can use this knowledge to make any kind of soup themselves.


#14 Candle

If you’re looking for funny gifts for noodle lovers and your soup-obsessed friends, this is perfect!

Trick them into thinking you’re actually giving them a can of soup (unthinkable and unacceptable for true soup connoisseurs, of course)!

Once they find out it’s actually a candle, they will always look back on this funny prank when they light the candle.


#15 Apron

Most soup connoisseurs will spend lots of time in the kitchen perfecting their favorite dish (soup). So they probably wear an apron more often than their Sunday-best outfit!

So if you want to give a funny and practical soup gift, an apron is a great idea!

Check out Etsy for all sorts of designs or go for this funny one that says, “One day I will make onions cry”.


#16 Soup thermos jar

This is one of the best gifts for soup lovers who are often on the road, such as campers and hikers. They can make a good soup at home, put the leftovers in this thermos jar, and save some for later. The thermos jar will keep their soup warm for another 6 hours, so they can hike to a beautiful summit and enjoy their soup at the top.

And even if your recipient it not much of an adventurous type, with this thermos jar they can take their soup to work, to picnic, or to any party!


#17 Nessie Ladle

This is one of the funniest gifts for soup lovers from Scotland, a ladle spoon shaped like the famous monster that is said to reside in Loch Ness (aka Nessie). So they can serve their soup in style.


#18 Soup-themed travel mug

Are you looking for gifts for soup lovers who also drink a lot of coffee? And usually, coffee to go?

Then a soup-themed travel mug is perfect!

First of all, the recipient will love it because they can still think about soup, even when they’re drinking coffee. And second of all, it will save a lot of plastic cups, because the recipient will always take their own soup mug instead of a disposable cup.

I really loved the funny “Miso Happy” mug, but there are over 400 different soup designs to pick from.


#19 Socks

Socks are just the best gifts for anyone, including soup lovers.

All you have to do is find socks with a funny print related to the recipient’s hobby or interest and you’ve found the perfect gift!

You can find over 30 soup-themed socks on Zazzle, such as these Korean spicy tofu soup socks.


#20 Coconut bowls

Coconut bowls are another cool way to serve soup, especially Asian-style soups such as pho or tom. And that makes these bowls plus spoons great soup gift ideas for people who are obsessed with Asian soups.


Soup gifts for small budgets

#21 Funny engraved spoon

If you are looking for funny, yet practical gifts for soup lovers then an engraved spoon is perfect!

I mean, every soup lover needs a spoon. (Unless they love soup so much, they actually drink it instead of using a spoon, but let’s assume the recipient is decent enough to use cutlery).

So why not give a spoon with a funny and sweet message at the same time?

But don’t worry if this message is a bit too cheesy for you, you can find plenty of engraved spoons on Amazon, and you can even personalize it with your own message.


#22 Soup bowl cozies

Do you recognize this struggle?

You’re super hungry, you’ve put your soup in the microwave to quickly heat up, and when it’s finally done, you burn your freaking hands by trying to take it out?

Well if not, I guarantee that the soup lover whom this gift is for will recognize it.

And the good news is that you’ve just found the perfect solution for that; soup cozies.

You just wrap these cloths around the bowl before heating it up in the microwave, and when it’s time to take it out, the cozies haven’t heated up, so you can simply take it out without burning your hands!


#23 Trivet

Are you looking for practical gifts for your soup-loving friends? 

Then these trivets (or other designs from Amazon) are the answer! 

Not only do they protect tables from hot soup disasters, but they also add a dash of style to their soup serving. It’s like giving them a red carpet for their homemade soup masterpieces, so they can serve their creations with the flair that’s only suited for a true soup chef.


#24 Japanese soup spoons

As I mentioned before, spoons are essential for soup lovers, so you can never go wrong with a spoon if you are looking for gifts for soup lovers.

And for people who also love Japan and Japanese miso soup, these traditional Japanese spoons are perfect! They come in a set of four and you can choose between two different patterns.


#25 Tote bags

With more than 3,000 different soup-themed tote bags on Zazzle, I am pretty sure you can find a design that the recipient will love.

But if you want to save yourself the time and effort of going through all these options, you can simply go for this “Soup’s On” tote bag, which works for any type of soup lover.
