Andy and I both love to cook (I'm hoping to be able to post recipes more consistently in the spring) and my kitchen is something I'm pretty much constantly shopping for, especially at garage sales and thrift stores. If you know someone who loves to cook and/or bake, getting them a gift for the kitchen is a lovely and thoughtful idea. These items range from very affordable to a a little over 100 dollars, so there's something for every budget.
This one would look so pretty sitting on the table and helps keep
tortillas warm. It can also be used with other flat breads like naan.
Prepara Herb Savor- This helps keep fresh herbs fresh longer in the refrigerator, which means better quality ingredients and less waste.
Food Processor- A food processor is an amazing gift for a mid-level to advanced cook. It saves time chopping vegetables and cheese and a good one can even process things like pizza and biscuit dough. Basically, it's a huge time savor and also helps with the making of purees and things like hummus.
Bread Box- Great for the baker in your life! A bread box will keep baked goods--everything from bread, rolls, muffins, etc.--fresh longer without having to use up a bunch of plastic bags.
Pasta Roller Attachment-
This attachment works with a KitchenAid stand mixer to make homemade
fettuccine and linguine noodles. This would make a great gift for major
Italian food fans and moderately advanced cooks. Note: make sure they
have a stand mixer before purchasing!
Silicone Baking Liners-Another great gift for a baker. These basically do the same thing as parchment paper, but you get to use them over and over again and you don't have to cut them down to size, so they're a huge time and money saver.
Apron 1 & 2- Every cook needs an apron. Why not make it a cute one? I love these, but there are tons of different designs out there.
Cutting Board- I love the rustic look of this cutting board; I think I'd feel like such a pro working with it. This would be especially great for someone with a country chic or more rustic looking kitchen, or for someone who really appreciates hand made items.
Honey Pot- I just love how cute this is, and makes it easy to drizzle honey over baked goods.
Stainless Steel 4-Piece Measuring Cup Set- A baker can never have too many measuring cups, and a really good quality set is more precise and accurate and will last a long time. These are gorgeous, quality measuring cups.
There are so many things for the kitchen that make great gifts, but these are a few I'm loving right now (and many of these are on my wish list as well)! What are some things you hope to receive for your kitchen this year?
Yours Truly, Jen
