Not sure what to get your favorite foodie this holiday? How about one of these unique ideas that can be used all year long.
Creating wine or foodie gift baskets do make great gifts, but since splurging on decadent food and drinks often goes along with holiday celebrations, it can get to be too much. When it comes to gift giving, skip the sweets and treats and opt for something that can be used all year long. Here are a few of my favorite ideas.
Kitchen gadgets make chopping, dicing and preparing food easier, especially our fruits and veggies. Think cherry chomper, a mandoline slicer, or citrus slicer are a few great examples. You can check out some of my favorite kitchen gadgets on my Pinterest page.
Small Kitchen Appliances
Years ago, if you wanted to fry something, you put oil in a pan, heated it and added your food. Years later, the fryer was developed, and today, there’s the air fryer. If you want to make something, there’s likely a small applicance to make it easier.
we’ve got an applicance for that.
A New Cookbook or Cookbook Holder
There are cookbooks on the market for every need: vegan, gluten free, low fat, low calories, cooking for one, etc. A great gift for a working mom or dad is a book of recipes for their slow cooker. And they are a lot more likely to use that cookbook if it is sitting out on the counter where they can see it, held up in a cookbook holder.
Color Coded Cutting Boards
You all know I am obsessed with food safety – that’s why my kitchen is filled with cutting boards. A set of color coded boards makes it easy to keep raw foods separate from those eady-to-eat foods. Always use red for meat, green for vegetables and orange for fruits.
Personalized Cheese Board
Who doesn’t love a personalized gift? If you have a freind or family member that has lots of social gatherings, a personalized cheese board or other serving platter is a great gift to add to their collection.
