Foodie Gift Guide
There’s something truly special about the holidays. I’m sure everyone can agree! This is the time that everyone gets out their baking gear to make festive treats for parties, gifts for neighbors, and just because. Check out our list below for some of our favorite kitchen tools bakers and cooks will love!
Another must-have for bakers is a hand mixer. While we certainly love our stand mixer, sometimes bringing out the bulky items isn’t always the easiest. This bad boy gradually increases in speed so you don’t get your ingredients all over the place. Which is always a bonus! Pair this hand mixer with some cookie sheets, a cookie scoop, and an Ove Glove for a cute gift basket idea.
These extracts from Nielsen-Massey Vanillas are the perfect gift for anyone who loves to bake. The Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract is great for everyday baking and can be used in a wide range of recipes (it’s our favorite!). Their Pure Almond Extract is great for cherry desserts, and their Pure Peppermint Extract pairs beautifully with holiday recipes. ‘Tis the season for baking! You really can’t go wrong with Nielsen-Massey’s extracts. They add an amazing flavor profile to your holiday baked goods, which makes the Bundle even more enticing for the bakers on your list!
You can also find Nielsen-Massey’s Holiday Flavors Bundle on Amazon in two different sizes. Be sure to order by December 20th to receive your Holiday Flavors Bundle in time for Christmas!
Fried food= lots of calories. But not with an air fryer! No oil or butter is required here. Enjoy your favorite fried foods without the guilt!
Now here’s a staple item. These aren’t just potholders my friends, these Ove Gloves make taking things out of the oven so much more accessible. They provide excellent heat protection AND fit around your fingers like a glove would, making it easier to get a good grip on hot items.
Forget the days of parchment paper or sticky oils and sprays. These baking mats are great for the environmentally conscious baker. They’re reusable, made from food-grade silicone, and make baking and clean up a breeze.
This electric interchangeable grill and griddle combo serves up a tasty meal without the hassle of firing up the charcoal or propane grill outdoors. Enjoy grilling indoors without the smoke and not having to worry about the rain or snow interfering! Now that’s what we call convenience.
Clearly, we can’t go without mentioning the Crock-Pot. There are tons of different ways you can use a crockpot. Crockpot dinners, breakfast, side dishes, and even slow cooker desserts! These handy devices are great for busy people who like the dump-and-go aspect of slow cookers.
The chop wizard makes dicing and chopping fruits and veggies trouble-free. There’s nothing bakers and cooks love more than saving time on tedious things like chopping fruits and veggies. I can’t tell you how often we use this chopper in our everyday lives, especially when it comes to making salsa!
Chopping fresh herbs isn’t the easiest task. I use these herb scissors any time I’m using fresh herbs, it snips without tearing the herb and helps retain the flavor. We use them for all types of recipes, like our Chili Lime Shrimp and Avocado Toast. Believe me when I tell you these scissors are a staple item in my kitchen, and we think the foodie on your list will love them as well.
Now here’s a unique idea! You can say goodbye to wine hangovers with this wand filter/aerator that purifies your glass of wine in just 3 minutes. It also restores opened wine bottles to its natural state. It works to eliminate the histamines and sulfites that cause wine allergies without altering the flavor of your beloved reds and whites. This makes the best gift for wine lovers and hangovers haters!
The instant pot was one of the most popular gift-giving ideas last year, and it’s still a popular choice this year! The Instant Pot cooks your meal up to 70% faster than normal. There are loads of fantastic instant pot dinner ideas floating around the web – for good reason! This is a great idea for those on a time crunch, just like the Crock-Pot. It’s available in 8 qt, 6 qt, and 3 qt.
For the carbonation fans, you’ll be glad to know that this Drinkmate machine can turn anything into a carbonated beverage! Water, juices, iced tea, coffee, wine, cocktails, mocktails, and even flat soda or beer can be transformed.
The Wholesome Yum Easy Keto Cookbook is awesome for those following the Keto diet and are looking for simple yet delicious recipes to keep them going! Plus, each recipe requires 10 ingredients or less. Does it get any better than that?
Many times those who follow the Keto diet (or want to try it out) are afraid that there aren’t many dessert options. Think again, The Ultimate Guide to Keto Baking shows you that your sweet tooth doesn’t have to suffer! Pair these two cookbooks together as a gift for your low-carb friend or loved one.
