March Food Days for Food Bloggers

March Food Days for Food Bloggers

This list of March food observances makes it easy for food content creators to brainstorm blog and email content ideas.

If you’re stuck for ideas for March content for your food blog’s email newsletters or social media channels, or you’re wanting to brainstorm recipe ideas or come up with fun food videos for your YouTube channel, check out all of these March food holidays. There truly is something for everyone and every type of food blogger and food content creator.

Many of these observances are based on dates in the United States but are often celebrated in the food community at large. I’ve tried to note where a month, week or day is tied to a specific country other than the USA. And where a day is observed globally, that has been noted as well.

March Email Newsletter Ideas For Food Bloggers

This March is all about St. Patrick’s Day, Easter and National Nutrition Month in the food content creation world. Work ahead with these March email newsletter ideas for food bloggers and food content creators.

March is often a challenging month for food content. It’s still winter but people are growing tired of root vegetables and they’re looking for lighter, brighter flavors after months of comfort food. But, this year (2024), Easter and Ramadan are both in March so that creates a huge opportunity for newsletter content creation!

EASTER & RAMADAN

Easter and Ramadan are both prominent holidays taking place in March. Ramadan starts on March 10th and runs until April 9th. Good Friday is March 29th and Easter Sunday is on March 31st) Each have their own unique food based traditions. That means lots of content ideas!

  • kid friendly projects
  • classic traditions
  • modern twists on tradition
  • don’t forget leftovers!

SPRING PRODUCE IS COMING!

Early, locally grown spring produce starts to appear towards the end of the month and is very location dependent but, most North Americans will start to see:

  • asparagus
  • California strawberries
  • locally grown tomatoes (where greenhouse agriculture is prominent)
  • locally grown cucumbers (where greenhouse agriculture is prominent)
  • locally grown peppers (where greenhouse agriculture is prominent)
  • root veggies, hardy greens (cabbage, kale), leeks, squash, potatoes, and citrus fruit are all still in season

ST. PATRICK’S DAY

St. Patrick’s is on March 17th. Here are some ideas you can feature:

  • anything green!
  • incorporating Guinness into recipes
  • traditional Irish foods like soda bread, corned beef and cabbage, beef stew, Shepherds Pie, etc
  • creative novelty treats celebrating the day for kids

NATIONAL NUTRITION MONTH

For health and wellness professionals, March is Nutrition Month in Canada and the US. Your professional body will probably have lots of pertinent info and talking points that you can use in your email communication!

TAILOR YOUR MARCH NEWSLETTER CONTENT FOR YOUR EMAIL AUDIENCE

As always, these are ideas to help you brainstorm. Adapt them to fit your audience and your niche, which you know better than anyone else.

Remember that your email audience may be different from the audience that finds you through search.

Focus on what your newsletter subscribers respond to. If you have the data available in your newsletter marketing platform, look at which content they responded to this time last year. Then create newsletter content that’s a good fit!

Now’s the time to get started. Plan out your March newsletter calendar and batch write your emails. Schedule them and you’re good to go!

** remember that you cannot use your direct Amazon affiliate product links in your emails but you can link to blog posts that contain Amazon affiliate links and you can link to your Amazon influencer shop. Check the rules of any other affiliate programs you use before including your links.

February Email Newsletter Ideas For Food Bloggers

February Email Newsletter Ideas For Food Bloggers

February is all about Valentine’s Day. Work ahead with these February email newsletter ideas for food bloggers and food content creators.

However you feel about Valentine’s day, there’s no escaping it when you’re a food content creator! There’s just not that much going on in February. We’re still well into winter in the northern hemisphere with few options for seasonal produce and the busy food holiday season behind us.

But, there are other things put in your emails and you can write about Valentine’s day in a way that works for you and your audience.

REMINDERS:

Easter is early in 2024 with Good Friday landing on March 29th and Easter Sunday following on March 31st. You could start to slowly drip Easter content out in your newsletters as early as the last week of February if Easter is a popular holiday for your blog.

Ramadan is expected to run from March 10 – April 9th in 2024. You can also start to drip out Ramadan content in late February if this is popular content for your audience.

VALENTINE’S DAY

There are multiple ways you can write about Valentine’s Day when it comes to food.

  1. Make it about the kids – focus on school treats or a special dessert or movie night at home
  2. Create Valentine’s day dinner menus from your recipe catalogue
    • family dinners
    • decadent romantic dinners for two
    • budget friendly romantic dinners
  3. Chocolate – desserts, how to make your own, making them together, taking a class
  4. Wine pairings – for that dinner menu you created above! Or how to set up a tasting at home
  5. Galentine’s day – a great alternate take on Valentine’s day. How to throw a girl’s night party and all the food the goes with it
  6. The anti-valentine – if Valentine’s day is really not you thing, embrace that too. You can talk about that with your readers and what you do instead (if anything) I guarantee you’ll have some agreeing with you!

BUDGET CONSCIOUS CONTENT

Groceries are expensive right now and, according to recent projections, they’re not going to drop in price any time soon. You don’t have to be a budget-friendly content creator to see that.

Incorporate that into your content in whatever way fits your audience: ingredient swaps, minimizing food waste, tutorials, shopping tips, pantry planning. It might be as simple as just acknowledging that you recognize shopping is challenging for a lot of people right now.

PANTRY CHALLENGES

In a similar vein to budget conscious content, pantry challenges can be a great option this time of year when seasonal produce isn’t amazing.

  • Focus on recipes that use canned foods, frozen foods and pantry staples
  • challenge readers to “shop their pantry”
  • talk about the importance or rotating food to avoid waste – February is a great time for a pantry cleanup
  • using the food in our emergency kits and restocking them (more food rotation)

SEASONAL FOOD

  • citrus
  • kale
  • cabbage
  • leeks
  • pineapple
  • mushrooms
  • forced rhubarb
  • root veggies

TAILOR YOUR FEBRUARY NEWSLETTER CONTENT FOR YOUR EMAIL AUDIENCE

As always, these are ideas to help you brainstorm. Adapt them to fit your audience and your niche, which you know better than anyone else.

Remember that your email audience may be different from the audience that finds you through search.

Focus on what your newsletter subscribers respond to. If you have the data available in your newsletter marketing platform, look at which content they responded to this time last year. Then create newsletter content that’s a good fit.!

Now’s the time to get started. Plan out your February newsletter calendar and batch write your emails. Schedule them and you’re good to go!

January Newsletter Ideas for Food Bloggers

January Newsletter Ideas for Food Bloggers

As we turn the calendar into a new year, January can offer up a slower pace for food content creators. But, there’s still a lot of great email newsletter content ideas for food bloggers!

January is a month where it’s really important to have a good handle on who your newsletter subscribers are. There are a lot of ways to approach January content so think carefully about how you want to proceed.

HEALTH AND WELLNESS

January is often viewed as a “fresh start” in terms of health and wellness. If you’re not a health professional proceed with caution here. Avoid reference to weight loss or restrictive eating – unless that is your audience! (Ie if you’re a keto content creator, then obviously you will focus on Keto content because that is your audience). Remember that the words you choose, and how you use them, matters.

You can try focusing on:

  • whole foods
  • lighter, simpler meals
  • mood boosting foods
  • moderation over restriction
  • inclusion of foods over exclusion of foods
  • nutritious snacks that fuel us through the cold and outdoor activities
  • foods that promote a sustainable environment
  • implementing small changes that make us feel more alive and vibrant

OTHER ‘FRESH STARTS’ TO FOCUS ON

There are lots of other fresh starts to explore in January that don’t focus on restrictive eating or diet culture.

  • pantry/kitchen clean-up and organization strategies
  • focusing on kitchen sustainability
  • evaluating kitchen tools/containers/dishes/appliances – what needs repair, what can be sold or given away, what needs to be disposed of (don’t forget you can recommend items and use your affiliate programs**)
  • minimizing instead of maximizing

BUDGET BOOSTERS AND KITCHEN WASTE

There’s always a bit of a spending hangover after the holiday season and 2024 looks like it might have an even bigger hangoer than usual. How can you address this in your emails?

  • budget boosting foods
  • budget friendly recipes
  • food swaps that reduce grocery bills
  • how to avoid kitchen waste (which also helps with budgeting!)
  • meal planning and prep (less like to waste food if you plan and prep)

SEASONAL FOOD

  • root veg, squash, winter greens
  • kiwi, persimmons and pomegranates
  • citrus season is still in full swing
  • soups and stews
  • comfort foods
  • salads with bulk
  • bulky grains like barley, buckwheat, bulgar, farro
  • smoothies and bright, vibrant breakfast ideas

VALENTINE’S DAY

Start dripping out Valentine’s day content in your emails in the last week of January – earlier if this is a good fit for your audience. A few quick ideas…

  • Valentine menu ideas
  • Treats and sweets for school or your kids
  • Galentine’s Day planning

Check out my list of February Email Newsletter Ideas for more Valentine’s Day suggestions.

December Newsletter Ideas for Food Bloggers

December Newsletter Ideas for Food Bloggers

December is a busy month for food content creators and the last big push in Q4. There’s no shortage of email newsletter ideas for food bloggers and food content creators. People are looking for entertaining ideas, last minute tips and recipes, homemade gifts, ideas to keep kids busy and more!

There’s more than enough ideas to keep you busy with food inspired newsletter content for December. I think we could easily send out an email a day in December and still have lots of ideas left over.

But, if you’re struggling with ideas for your food newsletter or you’ve just got too many things on your mind to brainstorm content for your newsletter audience, I’ve got a wealth of suggestions for you.

IMPORTANT DATES FOR 2023

Hanukkah: evening of December 7 to the evening of December 15

Christmas Eve: December 24th

Christmas Day: December 25th

Boxing Day and/or St. Stephens Day: December 26th is a statutory holiday in many countries outside of the US. It’s a popular day for shopping, televised sports and hosting open houses and drop-in gatherings.

Kwanzaa: December 26-January 1st

New Year’s Eve: December 31st

New Year’s Day: January 1st

ENTERTAINING

  • open houses, cocktail parties, dessert tables and buffets, brunches (another great buffet opportunity), Christmas dinner, skating parties, holiday light viewing walks and rides, New Year’s eve…
  • think about appetizers, desserts, drinks, items that can be made ahead of time (breakfast bakes and casseroles are very popular this year!)
  • entertaining on a budget
  • entertaining for different sized groups – from 3-4 people to big groups
  • recipes for festive drinks that can be made in large batches for a crowd (alcoholic and non-alcoholic options)

GIFTS FROM YOUR KITCHEN

  • recipes for spice mixes, hot cocoa mixes, soup mixes, cookie or pancake dry mixes (you can layer all of these in pretty glass jars)
  • cookie and bar swap or platter recipes
  • recipes for candied nuts, jams and jellies, chocolates and candies
  • tutorials on how to put together an attractive cookie or bar platter
  • templates to make your own gift tags or tutorials on how to decorate and wrap the jars of spice mix, hot cocoa etc.

KID FRIENDLY CONTENT

Lots of parents will have littles at home over the holidays and will be looking for things to keep them busy…

  • recipes kids can help with
  • cookie and bar decorating
  • homemade gifts from the kitchen kids can help with (assembling spice mixes, dry ingredients for soups or baking mixes, etc)

LEFTOVERS

  • recipes that use up leftover turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, vegetables
  • create a “leftovers” charcuterie board or turn leftover appies into a fun dinner night.

CONFIDENCE BOOSTER EMAIL

Ok this one is a bit different but hear me out. You could send an email to your list that has nothing to do with food. Everyone is stressed this time of year for a wide range of reasons.

Send an email reminding them they’ve got this! Offer up…

  • some relaxation or meditation techniques (going for a walk, some easy stretching, a relaxing activity that uses their hands like knitting or colouring, using a meditation app)
  • ways to cut corners while still having a fabulous holiday
  • sure fire, easy recipes that are impossible to screw up
  • how to combat loneliness – not everyone has family around at Christmas
  • ideas for giving back
  • something that reminds them it’s ok… it doesn’t have to be perfect!
  • some funny memes can also go a long way!

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDES

While you can’t post Amazon affiliate links in your emails, you can share a link to your Amazon affiliate shop (if you have one) or to blog posts that contain amazon affiliate links.

Other affiliate programs usually let you share their links in your emails so don’t just focus on Amazon.

Last minute gift ideas and stocking stuffers are great gift guides to share in December.

NEW YEAR’S EVE

Plan to start dripping out your New Year’s even content just after Christmas. I strongly recommend having this content prepped and scheduled in advance. The week between Christmas and New Year’s seems to exist in an alternate reality where we lose track of dates and time. If you’re anything like me, you probably spend a lot of it in your PJs!

You don’t want to feel pressure to do some work but there is a limited time to get New Year’s content out so prepping and scheduling is the way to go!

SEASONAL FOODS

The next few months are a bit rough when it comes to seasonal foods but here’s what to look for:

  • root vegetables and squash
  • citrus fruits
  • pomegranates
  • kiwi
  • cranberries
  • winter greens (kale, cabbage, brussels sprouts, collard greens etc)

TAILOR YOUR DECEMBER NEWSLETTER CONTENT FOR YOUR EMAIL AUDIENCE

As always, these are ideas to help you brainstorm. Adapt them to fit your audience and your niche, which you know better than anyone else.

Remember that your email audience may be different from the audience that finds you through search.

Focus on what your newsletter subscribers respond to. If you have the data available in your newsletter marketing platform, look at which content they responded to this time last year. Then create newsletter content that’s a good fit. If your audience is mainly young singles, skip the kid content!

Now’s the time to get started. Plan out your December newsletter calendar and batch write your emails. Schedule them and you’re good to go!

November Newsletter Ideas for Food Bloggers

November Newsletter Ideas for Food Bloggers

November brings us into the heart of Q4 and there is an wealth of email newsletter possibilities for food bloggers and food content creators as people are not only looking for Thanksgiving ideas but they’re also starting to prep for Christmas and other December holidays.

As I’ve mentioned in previous newsletter idea posts, a lot of food content creators up their email send frequency as we get into Q4 – especially if their audience is focused on baking or entertaining. It’s a great way to give your traffic an additional boost through the season where RPMs tend to be at their highest.

This month, don’t forget Black Friday/Cyber Monday!

If you have products – digital or physical – plan your promotions and the emails and social media content to go with them now!  Get it done and scheduled to make your life easier.

SEASONAL HOLIDAYS & IMPORTANT DATES:

Diwali: November 12 (this is actually a 5 day festival)
American Thanksgiving: November 23
Black Friday: November 24
Cyber Monday: November 27

AMERICAN THANKSGIVING:

  • Turkey: all things turkey – how to cook one, how to brine it, smoke it, air fry it, slow cook it, defrost it, stuff it, or cook it in the instant pot. Don’t forget leftovers for the week after Thanksgiving
  • Side Dishes: turkey’s great, but for many, it’s all about the side dishes. If you’re a niche blogger, dive in here with dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, keto-friendly etc
  • Dessert:  all things pumpkin and a lot of pie!
  • Turkey Alternatives: turkey isn’t for everyone. Vegans, vegetarians and small families are looking for other options
  • Friendsgiving: If you’ve got Chandler Bings in your life, you know what I’m talking about!
  • Leftovers: anything that helps use up leftovers and avoid food waste
  • Entertaining & Decor Ideas: y’all… pumpkin centerpieces are so flipping popular this year! Centrepieces, tableware and decor, cocktail presentation, appetizers, DIY tutorials etc

If you’re not American, you can start moving into Christmas and/or Hanukkah content. A lot content this time of year can double for Thanksgiving and the holidays: appetizers, sides, cocktails, baking etc.

SPORTS:

Thanksgiving is a big football holiday.  Pull out your game day recipes: snacks, dips, wings, finger foods, chili – all the favourites!

**Don’t forget to add in vegetarian and vegan options as well as some alcohol-free beverages – all of these are continuing to grow in popularity and it’s rare to host a gathering these days that doesn’t include meat and alcohol-free guests!

COOKIES, BARS, CANDY AND FOOD GIFTS

There are things that everyone starts planning for early and they include:

  • their annual cookie platters
  • cookie swaps (bars are often included in these)
  • homemade gifts from the kitchen: candy, jarred baking and beverage mixes, jams, jellies and more
  • holiday baking: fruit cakes, bars, pies and other seasonal items that can be baked ahead of time

Start dripping out recipe content for these in November. I’d start the first week!

You can also do related email content:

  • how to host or plan a cookie swap
  • how to create a cookie platter to gift
  • how to create your own labels for jams and jellies or boxed candies
  • how to package food for gifting (or shipping!)
  • baking pantry checklists

  • party prep
  • party ideas
  • decor
  • appetizers
  • cocktails
  • open houses and buffets

Think of ways you can put a spin on these for your audience:

  • budget-friendly
  • vegan or vegetarian
  • non-alcoholic
  • prep and make ahead
  • hosting gifts

NOVEMBER SEASONAL PRODUCE:

  • all the squashes!
  • root veggies: carrots, beets, potatoes, turnips, parsnips etc
  • kale and other hearty greens like swiss chard

TAILOR YOUR NOVEMBER NEWSLETTER CONTENT FOR YOUR EMAIL AUDIENCE

As always, these are ideas to help you brainstorm. Adapt them to fit your audience and your niche, which you know better than anyone else.

Remember that your email audience may be different from the audience that finds you through search.

Focus on what your newsletter subscribers respond to. If you have the data available in your newsletter marketing platform, look at which content they responded to this time last year. Then create newsletter content that’s a good fit. If your audience doesn’t care about sports, skip the sports content!

Now’s the time to get started. Plan out your November newsletter calendar and batch write your emails. Schedule them and you’re good to go!
