A slow cooker is one of the most essential kitchen tools for soup lovers, so let me give you a small piece of advice; Make sure you’ve checked whether the recipient already has one or not. Because it wouldn’t surprise me if they do.

But, if they don’t, a slow cooker is one of the most practical gifts for soup lovers, because it will allow them to make pretty much any soup at home.


#7 French onion soup bowls

#10 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 who 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!

The cute striped ones on Uncommon Goods are a bit more on the pricy side, but you can find more affordable options on Amazon if you’re budget is smaller.

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.

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-themed luggage tags
