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.

I’ve recently shared a round up of 25 homemade gifts, Stocking Stuffers for Tweens and Teens, and my Christmas gift guide has categories for everyone on your list!
