My favorite holiday present to shop for is the ‘kitchen gift’. A kitchen gift is useful, and often just plain fun. These are gadgets or specialty items we typically don’t buy for ourselves, but love to indulge our friends and family during the season of giving. And shopping for cooking accessories is such a pleasure! Take a look at these kitchen gift ideas for 2017. You may want to include a few of these on your own wish list as well!
These fisherman tea bag holders are an irresistible choice for any tea lovers on your list. They are made of silicone and slide securely on the edge of a mug. While these charming characters are my favorites, there are plenty of other cute tea bag holders out there, such as these snail tea bag holders.
These adorable mom and daughter aprons can be bought as a set or individually. What a fun way to encourage your budding chef! There are many other patterns out there, so if you like the idea, take a look at what’s out there.
If you or your loved ones don’t already have a good set of oil and vinegar dispensers, these should top the list! I appreciate mine daily, as I love the ease of grab and swirl, no lids or measuring spoons to slow me down!
Have you ever had a craving for popcorn but didn’t want the trouble of stovetop popcorn or pulling out the hot air popper? Check out the reviews of these microwave poppers, they are fantastically popular. You can collapse them for easy storage, and silicone means easy clean. You can use these poppers with or without oil, and at $15, makes it easy to give as a gift or ask for one of your own!
Need some stocking stuffer ideas? I love these little kitchen funnels. Because they collapse and fit right in your appliance drawer, you’ll find yourself using them all the time!
At a time when most people search for online recipes, I think a high quality cookbook can be a real treat of a gift. Weeknight Wonders is a great choice for those with an interest in simple healthy cooking.
Ellie Krieger uses mostly ingredients you have on hand. Although her recipes are no-fuss, there is always a unique touch that makes the dishes special. Chicken Enchiladas with Avocado Sauce, One-Pot Dominican-Style Chicken and Rice, Ravioli with Pumpkin Sauce, Shrimp with Spinach, Garlic, and Smoked Paprika…hungry yet? You might want to put this on your own wish list!
Herb scissors are a great gift because many people don’t know about them. And once you try them on your fresh herbs, you won’t want to do without! These scissors make chopping herbs much easier and fun too. A kitchen tool that makes you feel a little more like a real chef. Check out the reviews on these herb scissors and see how people are nuts about this gadget.
This electric wine opener by Wolfgang Puck came top rated by my wine connoisseur neighbor, Marla. She likes that it works on both synthetic and natural corks. It only takes seconds to uncork a bottle of wine, and can open 40 bottles with one charge.
If you don’t have an electric griddle yet, I highly recommend you put this one on your list. I can’t believe we waited so long to get one! Makes Sunday morning pancakes so much easier, and works with other foods too, like paninis and fritters. It’s so slim that it stows away easily.
Light Saber Chopsticks are a perfect choice for your Star Wars Foodie Fan!
These pizza cutters are another kitchen gadget that’s fun to give as a gift. There are many unique designs to choose from, but my favorites are the Bicycle, Monkey, and Starship Enterprise Pizza Cutters.
So many adorable tea infusers to choose from, but the Loch Ness monsters are my favorite. The silicone makes it no-fuss, and the colors and theme are just too cute.
High quality pot holders always strike me as a no-fail present. Everyone uses pot holders and they don’t last forever. Etsy has a broad and unique selection, but these colorful ones with a black background really caught my eye.
