Did you know these existed? Well, I didn’t either until I started looking for anything that an ice cream lover would love or use. It’s a set of spoons that also work as a straw once your ice cream has melted. Or, if they also like a good milkshake, that also something these spoons would be great for. They might be a bit tricky to clean, and that’s why the set also comes with its own little brush to clean them. So, only give it to someone that will actually clean it.

Another great kitchen gadget is this waffle bowl maker. It’s maybe not the prettiest gift on this list, but if they love a good waffle bowl, then this is a great idea. You can make two waffle bowls at once, you just need to perfect your batter. A little tip for chocolate lovers; fill it with some chocolate once the dough is done to get a nice coating on the inside and make the bowls more ice cream proof. It’s not super cheap, but it’s still pretty affordable.

12. An Ice Cream Neon Light

13. An Insulated Ice Cream Bowl

Keep your ice cream cold for longer with this freezable bowl. Of course, this is only a good gift idea for ice cream lovers that don’t like the melty ice cream part. Because then, you are basically ruining their favorite part. You can get just one of these or an entire set. It is a pretty big bowl, so not great for kids, as it seems like more of a salad bowl in their hands. Another option is to go with a stainless steel bowl, but they tend to also be too cold to actually hold. Something this bowl solves.

14. Ice Cream Bandaids

It’s one of the most expensive items on this list, but definitely worth it if they have the space for it and if they love soft serve ice cream.

16. An Ice Cream Lock

If their favorite ice cream is from Ben & Jerry’s and they don’t live by themselves, then they’ll love this ice cream lock by the brand. It will fit perfectly on a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. It’s very clearly a gimmick and novelty present, but a fun one nonetheless. Because, let’s be honest, a lock isn’t gonna stop anyone who’s really into getting the ice cream. But I think it’s a great one to get. You can even pair it with a pot of ice cream and already put it on there for them to figure out.

17. Cookie & Chocolate Spoon Molds

Now, this is the perfect gift idea for sweet tooths. You can use it to make chocolate spoons or cookie spoons to eat your ice cream with. I do suspect that you’ll need a bunch of them to actually get through a bowl of ice cream. However, it will look great as a small add-on to a bowl of ice cream while serving it. So, I would say this ice cream gift is great for anyone who likes to host dinners and loves ice cream as the perfect dessert for any meal.
