It’s day three of five of fabulous holiday giveaways and gift ideas! Today we are highlighting some unique gifts for the home chef! Giveaway is now closed.

Whole Foods Market {gift cards}

Ever since I can remember I loved going to Whole Foods. I remember begging my parents to take me and my best friend down to Lower Greenville in Dallas (where I grew up) so we could hang out and eat in their in store restaurant. I should have known then that I was destined to always be a foodie. The Austin based natural and organic market first started in the 1980′s and is now nation wide providing fresh, high quality, least processed, natural foods for your family. The Whole Foods of the 80′s that I remember might have grown up in the years but still holds the high standards I remember. Whenever I’m in Dallas visiting my family that is the first place I go because the selection and quality is amazing! I’m almost overwhelmed with all of the fresh produce I see when I walk in the door and my mind races with recipes to feed my family. Grab a Whole Foods gift card online or at your local Whole Foods Market for your favorite chef’s stocking this holiday. Trust me they will love it!
