Restaurant owners eat, sleep, and breathe their work. They’ve got their hands in kitchen, customer service, business, payroll – you name it, they do it!

Here is a roundup of perfect gifts for a restaurant opening that you can take inspiration from.

#1 Decorative Items for the Restaurant

The best gift in this case is one that reminds her of your attention. 

You have a multitude of choices, from small trinkets for the counter to the chalkboard to hang on the wall of the restaurant.

This lantern is made from bamboo frame and covered by fabric. It can be collapsed and opened easily. You can put a light bulb inside for lighting.

#2 A Wireless Bluetooth Set

Restaurant owners are probably pretty busy, so keep their hands free with a headset like this! The flexible LG TONE Flex occupies less storage space and can be easily carried anywhere. 

32-bit Hi-Fi DAC upscales lower quality files to reproduce high-resolution, finely detailed audio that sounds close to the original studio recording.

And a composite diaphragm inside the speaker unit helps produce clarity in high and low ranges. 

The high-strength metal layer creates accurate treble, while a plastic layer produces rich, deep bass.

#3 An Ice Cube Maker

If you want a gift that stands out, consider opting for an ice maker. It is quite unusual and original that the idea will certainly please. 

The Whynter UIM-502SS stainless steel built-in ice maker complements any modern kitchen and bar area making 50 lbs of ice cubes in 24 hours and can store 25 lbs of ice.

The stainless steel housing also ensures that you won’t get any smudges or prints on the ice maker, all the while keeping the unit safe from normal wear and tear.

#4 A Smart Notebook

For the owner who likes to write down their notes, but also appreciates the aspect of keeping their notes digitized. 

Use RroWrite with the RoWrite Pen as a regular notepad for sketching or handwritten notes.

RoWrite will record and save what you write on paper and sync to your iOS, Android, Mac or Windows device when you are ready.

#6 A Special Stamp

Give them a signature stamp to help them save time when signing checks or documents. 

Here, you can convert their signature into a file type, which is then lasered into stamp rubber, so the stamp will retain every loop, and curve that makes a signature unique.

The signature stamp will look like an exact duplicate of their signature every time! 

#7 A Cookbook

At first glance, giving a cookbook to someone who has just decided to open a restaurant might seem like a bad idea, but we can assure you that this is not the case at all. 

With unlimited access to recipes, why does anyone need another cookbook? Because not all recipes are born equal.

Not all of them have been created by a global superstar chef who has built his reputation on delivering the very best food.
