Are you looking for ideas on what to get your loved ones for Christmas this year? Are they into cooking? Baking? Eating? Who isn't, right?!? Or maybe you just need to treat yourself a little?!?
Well, look no further - I have compiled a list of some of my favorite things - tried and true and tested around the kitchen!
I have separated my ideas into five sections - feel free to use the links below to skip to the one that interests you, or browse them all!
Gifts for the Cooking Enthusiast (or the Hungry Foodie)
I loooove my Wustof set of knives - I've had it for over 10 years now and they are still as sharp as a surgeon's scalpel. And the best thing about this set is that it comes with multiple empty slots so you can purchase additional knives (I have added extra pairing and steak knives to my set).
Every cook needs a good set of mixing bowls and I love that these come with lids.
Amazon.com: Mixing Bowls with Airtight Lids, 6 Piece Stainless Steel Metal Bowls by Umite Chef, Measurement Marks & Colorful Non-Slip Bottoms Size 7, 3.5, 2.5, 2.0,1.5, 1QT, Great for Mixing & Serving: Home & Kitchen
Feeling a little "Hangry"? Who can't relate? This sweatshirt comes in multiple colors and I own one of them myself.

Spilling half of your pasta as you are trying to drain it over the sink? Problem solved with this special pasta pot. I break it out of the pots and pans cabinet weekly!

Gifts for the Baker
A set of Baking Dishes
A full set of baking dishes! Hell yea!
Pie weights - I don't make pies often, but when I do, I love these weights!
A standing mixer? If you are serious about baking, you gotta have one!
Do you like my muffin top?
I wear this sweatshirt proudly too - it always gets people's attention!
Measuring Cups and Spoons
The first rule of baking is measure, measure, measure!
Gifts for the Wine Lover
Wine Foil Cutter
Full disclosure - I just very recently discovered that these gadgets even exist but now I don't open a wine bottle without one!
These come in many different colors - I own a few and love using them on these hot summer nights when we get to chill on the patio with a nice bottle of wine (or, I'll confess, I love me some margaritas by the pool and these are perfect for that too!)
Stemless Wine Glasses
I wouldn't call myself a wine snob, but I'm definitely a wine glass snob, lol! These stemless glasses are perfect for any occasion!
I own this one! I love it! Need I say more!
Wine Gift Set
You want to surprise someone with the whole wine package deal? Here's a nice set - it includes an electric opener, a wine stopper, foil cutter, wine aerator and more. Just add a bottle of wine and you'll be the favorite this holiday season!
Gifts for the Coffee Lover
Nespresso Coffee Machine
I LOVE my Nespresso Machine! Had it for about 5 years now and I've never looked back! Love that one machine can make 5 different sizes of coffee - from espresso to Americano - just pop in the applicable pod and the machine does its magic. I also love the milk frother - it can whip up hot milk for cappuccinos or cold milk for iced coffee. And what's even better - the pods are recyclable - the company sends you free envelops that you can collect your used pods in and drop them right at the post office!
I hope someone gets me these for Christmas!
