Ideas on this list will make the lives of people you care about better. And hint, hint: These ideas aren’t just for gifting to someone else. You deserve gifts that make life easier, too!
There are some exceptionally great deals to be had this season, so let’s get to the goods.
If you’ve used one, you know why you have to have one. Simply the best blenders that last forever.
No more wasted food scraps. This thing is seriously amazing. Just add your scraps and in a matter of hours, they are transformed and ready to be combined with your garden soil to add nutrients.
Anova Wifi Sous Vide Machine
Give the gift of a sharp knife, which makes cooking a joy. These inexpensive but high-quality kitchen knives come in all the shapes and sizes you could want.
Vitamix Immersion Blender
Definitely on my wish list for everything from quickly making a vinaigrette or a pesto to blending up soup right in the pot. A hand blender is all about quick and convenient blending.
Boos Block Cutting Board
Prepping on a beautiful maple cutting board makes slicing and dicing vegetables so wonderful. Maple has the best feeling and is soft on your knives so they stay sharper longer.
Thermapen Instant-Read Probe Thermometer
If they (or you) don’t have one of these amazing and absolutely essential kitchen thermometers, then it should be at the top of the list.
Thermoworks Signals BBQ Alarm Thermometer
The ultimate BBQ thermometer alarm that can remotely monitor the internal temperature of your meat and the temp of the smoker.
Drawer Knife Holder
Keeping the knives out of the block is way more sanitary and keeps your counter looking tidy. Love this little knife holder that fits plenty of knives and fits perfectly in a drawer.
Great for cocktails, vinaigrettes and anything else for which you need to squeeze all the juice out of your lemons, limes and small oranges so you get every drop of nectar.
Food Vacuum Sealer
From buying in bulk to sous vide cooking: A vacuum sealer is one of those tools everyone needs in their kitchen.
Made In Cookware
High-quality cookware will last a lifetime. Made In is my new favorite brand for high-quality pots and pans, because they are so much more affordable than some other brands, but work as good or better.
Dyson Stick Vacuum
Keeping clean above the waist in the kitchen might be most important, but that floor needs some love, too. The Dyson Stick makes vacuuming a breeze.
Digital Kitchen Scale
Measuring based on weights is much more accurate than by volume. It’s even easier and will change how you cook. Definitely an essential tool with tons of uses.
The only thing better than a single kitchen timer is one with multiple timers in one.
One for you, one for them. These colorful little Swiss peelers are so sharp and easy to use. They make peeling and prepping a joy.
Premium Proteins (aka Meat)
Because no one will be unhappy when a premium cut of their favorite meat arrives on their doorstep ready to cook and enjoy.
Music in the kitchen (and the rest of your house) makes everything feel better. Sonos is an amazing wireless system that streamlines listening and has superb quality sound.
Portable Picnic Table
Dining out less doesn’t mean we can’t dine out more with a picnic at the park. These little tables are a welcome addition to the blanket to sit on.
Wine and Beverage Cooler
They will love having the convenience of their favorite drink even closer to the action. Go for a combo wine-and-beverage model for more versatility.
Cooking pizza at home in a 900° F oven makes it just like like your favorite pizza restaurant.
OXO Pop Containers
An organized pantry makes for a happy kitchen.
Definitely a gift that will bring so much joy and will be used just about every single day (and usually more than once).
Breville Smart Oven Air
Because your large oven is unnecessary most of the time. This thing does everything from making great toast to roasting a 15-pound turkey. Air fry, dehydrate, bake and roast.
Ice Cube Trays
You can never have enough ice cubes. And the large cubes are the best, because they melt slowly when sipping that drink.
A Good Cookbook
Get inspired to cook with all the cool new tools. One for you and one for your friend or fam, so you can cook along together.
