Oh, baby. It’s cold outside! I’m going to put my cozy sweats on and SHOP SHOP SHOP – from my cozy home, filled with twinkling lights and coffee in hand. The following 15 gift ideas are either IN my kitchen, or will be SOON! 🙂
It’s that time of year when we say “I LOVE YOU” in so many ways. Cards, gifts, parties, special gatherings and meals. If you know someone who loves to cook, or maybe is interested in learning to cook, what better way than to start them out with something for their kitchen? I’ve rounded up 15 of my favorite items for you to browse from the comfort of your home. Give them a look and read the reviews too. I have 12 out of the following 15 items in my kitchen now. Who knows? Maybe I’ll have all of them by the end of the year!
Happy shopping! 😀 (Links are below!)
- Bosch Universal Mixer – This is a must-have if you are into making bread and rolls and bread and rolls. SO much easier than using a KitchenAid because it has a secure lid and a larger capacity.
- Le Creuset Cast-Iron French (Dutch) Oven – Well, I don’t have this but I WANT it. 🙂
- KitchenAid Immersion Blender – I have this one in red and use it all the time. Great for soups!
- Cuisinart 14-Cup Food Processor – My 10-cup food processor is getting too small (because helloooo Peanut Butter Power Balls!) so I’m planning on stepping up to THIS baby real soon.
- Keurig Classic Single-Serve Coffee Maker – You don’t actually cook with this, but all cooks need coffee. We live and die by this version of Keurig.
- Instant Read Meat Thermometer – Small and mighty, this thermometer is life when it comes to cooking chicken and pork to perfection. Stocking stuffer?
- Zulay Lemon Lime Squeezer – My hands got tired from squeezing aaaalllll the lemons and limes, so THIS saves me. Because how YOU doin’ margaritas and slushies?!
- Chicago Metallic Jelly-Roll Pan, Set of 2 – The most-used pans in my kitchen. I use them for baking, roasting, and EVERYthing else.
- Instant Pot – All the cool kids have an Instant Pot, including ME, thanks to my guys last Christmas!
- Vitamix Blender – My sweet boys surprised me with a Vitamix for Mother’s Day last May, and I’ve been mixing up different smoothies like a smoothie factory ever since. You can use it for so many other things, but I love it for smoothies, shakes, and frozen cocktails best! GET ONE!
- Nostalgia Electric Ice Cream Maker – THIS is a game changer when it comes to ice cream. SO many varieties to choose from, and while I’ve got three great recipes on the blog, I need to get to churning some NEW ideas.
- Cast Iron Skillet – We have a variety of cast iron skillets that we’ve picked up at antique stores/flea markets over the years. But if you don’t have time for that, this one looks like a good one.
- All-Clad Stockpot – While this is on the pricier side, it’s 100% worth the investment. Professional grade cookware, and I use it almost daily.
- Toddy Cold Brew Coffee Maker System – This is my best friend in the warmer months, because cold brew equals LIFE in “hot” Texas. My entire family uses this, and it’s inexpensive AND works like a charm.
- Heavy Duty BBQ Grilling Tools Set – I’ve had my eye on this set for awhile now. Thinking it might be a great gift for Mike for Christmas. Shhhh.
Christmas shopping from home is the BEST! 🙂
