If you’re searching for ideas for those friends and family members who enjoy spending time in the kitchen, we’ve got you covered! I hope you enjoy this round up of my very favorite kitchen gifts.
These are fabulous gifts for chefs and anyone in your life who loves to cook, bake, and entertain.
These are kitchen essentials that I love and use in our home. There’s something for everyone in this complete gift guide!
As I prepare this year’s gift guides, I am also updating a few favorite gift guides from the past as classics never go out of style.
Call me crazy, but I love receiving kitchen gifts for Christmas. In fact, for the last few years, that’s what I’ve requested. How many people do you know (including yourself) that have said we should all have a 10 year anniversary shower to rebuild your kitchen tools?
Well, today I’m sharing some of my favorite kitchen gifts for yourself, a friend or family member. I’m creating a variety of gift guides to suit every buyer and recipient.
Kitchen Gift Ideas
I have so many kitchen favorites, but I narrowed my selection down to the pieces I use regularly and are versatile. Just great, long-lasting classics that make life a little easier and cooking and baking a little more fun!
Brass Dinner Bell
Add instead charm to any kitchen or dining area with this brass dinner bell! Read more about our love for brass bells here – we have the 6″ of his beauty but there are many sizes!
Scallop Kitchen Towels
Scalloped home decor is such a fun trend right now, and these beautiful towels are some of my favorite items from the past year.
Brass Salt + Pepper Mill
It doesn’t get any more beautiful than this! These stunning pieces can grace on any countertop with ease, and they’re as gorgeous as they are functional.
Pasta Maker Attachment
If you have a KitchenAid mixer, it’s so easy with this attachment, and takes the same amount of time as it does to prepare boxed noodles.
Boos Block Cutting Board
When we got marble countertops, I got a Boos block that we leave out 24/7. Many years later, it’s still going strong.
Mini Food Processor
I’m not much of a fan of small kitchen appliances because they consume so much space, but this mini food processor packs a lot of punch and is less than $40!
15 Piece Knife Block Set
I adore my Zwilling knife block and knives, but this more affordable white and gold set is gorgeous, with great reviews!
Electric Can Opener
I can’t live without this can opener! It’s so easy to use and stow away. It is the best little stocking stuffer, and one that everyone can use and enjoy.
Such a handy tool to have in your drawer – we use these for everything from green oninos to herbs and even vanilla beans!
For Stovetop and Oven
Staub cast iron cookware, like this Dutch oven, is essential in my kitchen. It’s also an item many people don’t want to buy for themselves – it’s a winner of a gift!
I tend to use the 7 quart the most frequently! If you’re looking to spend less, this Martha Stewart option is beautiful too, and so affordable!
These pretty ceramic cookware pieces are so beautiful in our lake kitchen! Read more about them in our Pots and Pans Storage guide.
Coq Au Vin
My Coq Au Vin works just as hard braising beef and browning chicken evenly. It’s a staple that can be passed down from generation to generation.
Lidded Oval Baker
I love a piece that is both useful and beautiful, especially if it goes from the oven to the table with ease! This one is an incredible price point at just $19.88!
Stainless Steel Pans
I turned in my old non-stick set in favor of dishwasher safe stainless for our St. Louis kitchen. I no longer question if we’re getting a little extra “seasoning” in our dinner.
Lucerne Casserole Dishes
This line of casserole dishes is one that I turn to again and again. With simple, clean lines and fitted lids, they are wonderful for Thanksgiving side dishes and beyond. Affordable, too! $17.95 – $34.95
In the interest of efficiency, these are just a few of my favorite baking gifts. See my complete guide to the best gifts for bakers here.
Many years ago, I upgraded to this bakeware and have never looked back. They bake evenly, are effortless to clean, and look just as pretty today as when I received them! (The 6 piece set pictured is often on sale for $99.95)
A fabulous new bowl will customize this hard working kitchen appliance. I love this one with the prettiest lace texture – on sale for $74.95!
I use my marble pastry slab when making cutout sugar cookies, cinnamon rolls and even when I’m prepping a lot of pasta to entertain. It even looks pretty sitting on the countertop!
Copper Measuring Tools
I know everyone has measuring cups, but these pretty copper measuring cups make baking even more fun and clean surprisingly well. I feel the same about my copper measuring spoons.
