Gifts for the Cooking Enthusiast (or the Hungry Foodie)

Knives Set

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).

Mixing Bowls

Every cook needs a good set of mixing bowls and I love that these come with lids.

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!

Funny socks

I hope someone gets me these for Christmas!
