Holiday Gift Guide – the Chef

Gift Guide | November 21, 2019

One of the most important things to consider when gift giving is what the person would enjoy, but may not necessarily buy for themselves. The best gift is something that is beautiful, but also practical. Today we’ve rounded up gifts for the chef in your life that we think fits that criteria.

Shopping for a chef who loves to grill? This electric lighter is “the fastest, easiest, safest and cleanest way to light barbecues or fireplaces.” So they can not only grill you a delicious steak, but also light a nice fire to keep you cozy and warm. We like the sound of that.

Salt is the most important spice to have in your kitchen. Give the gift of these gourmet finishing salts for the chef in your life to enjoy experimenting with.

This glazed serving tray is so beautiful and comes at a great price point. Pair it with a beautiful towel and some gorgeous wooden spoons for a simple, yet elegant gift.

Does the chef you know love to grow their own herbs? This hydropod is the coolest thing we’ve seen in a long time. No dirt needed, it makes growing herbs super easy. It comes with basil seeds, but they can grow any herbs they want.

This is the prettiest tea kettle in the history of tea and kettles and kitchens.

If the chef you know loves to use cast iron, then they most likely need this cast iron conditioner. It’ll help clean and protect their pans with ease.

We love simple, classic styles around here, and this walnut cutting board is exactly that. It will look beautiful displayed on the counter top or on the dinner table. We even think it will make chopping vegetables more enjoyable.

We recommend pairing any wooden cutting board with this complete cutting board care kit. It will help keep the wood looking and working great for a long time.

You can give the gift of cheese! Cheese boards to be exact. With 27 options to choose from, you can find a gift for every food lover you know, and maybe be able to sample some yourself. We think this French cheese plate sampler sounds especially delicious.

Homemade popcorn is such a treat and this cute little stovetop popcorn popper is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Pair it with their favorite movie on DVD and you’re sure to have a winning gift.

No kitchen is complete without a Kitchenaid mixer. With over 35 color options, this one is customizable to your recipient’s tastes, needs, and wants.

A beautiful linen apron. So luxurious. So durable. Plus this one has a cross back, so no strings to tie either. Win win.

Easily the most beautiful salt and pepper tower ever. These copper cuties will add a touch of glam to any kitchen space, and we really do think it will fit in with any style.
