All of the following suggestions can be adapted as to the amount that you wish to give:
1. Specific gift card to favorite or new restaurant
2. Certificate to cooking class
3. Find out if the person prefers coffee or hot tea, then tailor gift by giving a gift certificate to one of the beverage establishments and include a special cup.

depends on the particular kind of "food lover" you're shopping for - if I know of a kitchen gadget that I personally love - I might give it - but only to someone I'm pretty sure will use and appreciate it - some people love cookbooks - some love to improvise and don't care for cookbooks - some love following food trends and exciting restaurants - so I try to get something specific to that person's loves. (a gift certificate to their favorite supermarket - cheese store - butcher etc is another great food gift - especially for younger people who love to cook, but don't have big food shopping budgets.

Gourmet quality olive oil. Nutritious, delicious, versatile. Every bit as good as a bottle of wine.

1) Anything homemade.
2) A custom-made basket of goodies (pick the stuff yourself so you know it's good and will be enjoyed).
3) Restaurant gift cards.

specialty ingredients, like good olive oil or interesting vinegars, or salts -- higher priced items that are fun to experiment with that someone might not be willing to splurge on themselves for!
