25 gifts for chili lovers

Random side note on Chili lovers gifts

Before we continue to the 25 awesome chili lovers gifts, I do want to say something about spelling the word “chili”. Because I don’t want you to get distracted from the awesome gifts by my spelling.

So, when I started writing this list of the best chili gifts (for travelers), I was so confused by how to spell the word chili.

Is it one L, is it two LL? Does it end with an I or an E?

And then how to spell when it’s plural? Is it chilies or chilis? Or two LL?

So I did my research and as it turns out the British, American, and Latin American countries have different spellings, no wonder it’s so confusing. Anyways, I am sticking to the American spelling for this post, meaning that I will spell “Chili” with one L, ending on I, and the plural in chilies.

Not that anyone really cares how I spell it, but I just felt the need to explain it either way.
