Whether you are, or know of, a home cook you probably realize that there are like a million different kitchen gadgets, supplies, dishes, platters, cookware, etc that you could give them for the holidays. Well, I’m going to make it rather easy. I have a list of gifts for the cook in your life, regardless what type of cook (paleo, keto, traditional, vegan, mo’butter da better, etc) they are. BONUS! They don’t break the bank.
First is the Cuisinart Smart Stick Immersion Blender. Personally I use this immersion blender each and every day. I use it for my bulletproof coffee each morning. It also does a great job on anything else from making soup base to smoothies for the girls. It’s a good price of only $30.91 right now. Even if they already have one, a duplicate is nothing to fuss about. I have another one that was given to me waiting in the cupboard.
The one thing I didn’t know I needed until I had was the Spiralizer 5-Blade Vegetable Slicer
After going Keto, I realized that I was going to need a substitute for pasta. I decided to try out Zoodles. I ordered the Spiralizer, thinking that I would get something a little more heavy duty if I liked using it. Turns out, this one is just fabulous. When I first got it, it seemed a little flimsy that it might not be up to the task, but I haven’t had an ounce of trouble with it at all and it’s a great price of only $29.99. There are also lots of cookbooks for the Spiralizer, but the best ones are Inspiralized and The Spiralizer Cookbook.
A gadget that no home cook can have to many of are kitchen shears! KitchenAid Shears are fantastic and wear really well. They work well to cut up pizza, or to even break through bones to cut up a chicken. They are a really decent price for a KitchenAid product. Some places as low as $11.99.
OXO Good Grips 7-Piece Nesting Measuring Beaker Set are my FAVORITE! I love that they are measuring cups looking like beakers, I love that they nest easily and I adore that they don’t have handles. The handles seem to get in the way, or they break off. These cuties are only $14.99. They are dishwasher safe and pour so easily.
Fox Run Brands Mini Whisks look like a key chain for a cook and the price is similar to one (as low as $4), but these mighty little workers are fantastic! I tend to use my smaller whisks more than large full size ones. These little guys clean up nicely in the sink or in the dishwasher. I got mine as stocking stuffers a few years ago. I’ve bought them for the same reason for others.
None of these ideas trip your trigger? Need a little something more personal? Enter Homemade Coupons. Any cook would love these for picking up dinner, cleaning the kitchen, emptying the dishwasher without complaining, noticing that the trash needs to go out and take it out, etc.
