1. Tooth Picks
A real carnivore needs a quality toothpick. As they say, you have to break a few eggs to make an omelette, or in the case of the Carnivore Diet—you have to get a little meat stuck in your teeth to be a true carnivore. Okay, maybe we made that up, but it’s true!
You have the full range of options when it comes to toothpicks, from cheap to expensive, from wood to metal, but we especially love these premium toothpicks from Daneson. They are sourced from American northern white birch and crafted with only natural ingredients. They offer some fun flavors from Bourbon to Mint.
Plus, for every tree they mill, one hundred trees are planted.
2. Quality Salt
A true Carnivore understands the importance of high quality salt. It not only tenderizes any cut of meat but enhances the natural meat flavor. Anyone who loves smoking meat, will love high quality salt.
It's easily the single most important non-meat ingredient on the Carnivore Diet. From Kosher salt and sea salt, to Himalayan pink salt and Fleur de sel, there are no shortage of choices when it comes to salt and all types have a place in the kitchen, so you really can’t go wrong.
We are big fans of Only Salt.
Hand-harvested 10,000 feet in the Andes Mountains, this salt is unbleached with no aluminum, no microplastic, and no dextrose. The coarse texture and complex will take any Carnivore’s steak to a whole new level. This is salt that you can enjoy and feel good about.
3. Meat Subscription
There are a lot of meat subscriptions out there, but we’re partial to Porter Road. They offer a variety of meat box options that feature all kinds of meats from pork chops, bacon, lamb, chicken, and beef cuts. Some of their best beef cuts include New York, filet mignon, and ground beef.
It’s a great gift for food lovers, home cooks, and BBQ lovers. You can sign up for shipments every month, quarterly, or just one time.
4. Steak Searing Blowtorch
A true meat lover takes their steak seriously. Serious steak means a perfectly browned exterior with a juicy and pink inside, and that takes serious skill. Even if you achieve that perfect steak, you’re left with a kitchen full of smoke and fire alarms blaring in the background. The constant smell of roasted meat might not get on the nerves of others in a carnivore household, but a smoky kitchen certainly will.
Enter the Searzall.
This blowtorch attachment tool makes it easier to prevent food from becoming too well done by effortlessly searing the surface of meat. It’s a real show stopper in the kitchen and guaranteed to please that Carnivore that is also a kitchen nerd. It’ll bring real delight to your loved one’s face. It’s great for the kitchen cook or barbecue lover. This is easily one of the best gifts for steak lovers.

Beef Jerky is like candy to a carnivore. Unfortunately, most commercial beef jerky is exactly that—candy. Loaded with sugar, preservatives, and other artificial ingredients, beef jerky is something a Carnivore dieter has to be really careful with.
