Do you have a special lady in your life who enjoys cooking? One of the best aspects of the holiday season is the gift-giving (and receiving)! Going through your Christmas list and deciding what to get everyone, however, can be a little stressful. That’s why, this year, I’ve compiled a series of lists full of fun, kitchen-themed gift ideas.
Whether you are shopping for Mom, the Mrs., or any other culinarily-inclined ladies, here are my recommendations on great Christmas gifts for women in the kitchen.
The best thing about choosing a kitchen-themed gift is that cooking is universal! After all, we all have to eat. With so many options, chances are there’s a perfect present for everyone, whether they enjoy cooking or not!
Know a working gal who’s always on the go? There are a multitude of time-saving gadgets that make preparing a meal quick and easy. Are you blessed with a grandmother who loves baking? You can’t go wrong with a classic rolling pin or a set of baking pans. Do you have a college-aged daughter? Why not give her something she can bring with her when she heads back to the dorm?
The important thing is that you pick a gift that reflects the personality of the recipient. Choosing a gift you know she can use is a great way to show you care. A safe rule of thumb is: if you would appreciate receiving it, then you should contemplate gifting it.
She’s all about that buzz
Does your special lady start her mornings with a double latte? Does she end a good meal with a rich shot of espresso? If so, a coffee maker may well be the perfect gift. The Zojirushi Fresh Brew Stainless Steel Thermal Carafe Coffee Maker is a particularly excellent model.
This super stylish machine looks great in the kitchen, and makes a great cup of coffee too!
It can be programmed to wake her up in the morning with a fresh brew, and the 1.5 liter thermal stainless steel carafe will keep the coffee hot for hours. This model also comes with one-year warranty.
For the gal-on-the-go, consider gifting a quality coffee Thermos to keep her coffee piping hot during those morning commutes.
Ideal even for those trying to cut back on the java, a French press can brew both coffee and a delicious cup of loose-leaf tea. Busy moms and worker bees alike can enjoy a sipping soothing cup of tea after a busy day.
She’s a wine-lover
A bottle of wine is always appreciated during the holidays, and it’s an easy thing to personalize! Simply pair a nice bottle of wine with a great corkscrew or another cool wine accessory for a classy gift sure to impress. The Vinturi Deluxe Red Wine Aerator is one such accessory. It’s a unique, striking device that mixes wine with air to enhance flavor, bouquet, and finish of any red wine.
It’s hard to go wrong with a quality set of wine glasses. One of the best names in this competitive market is Riedel. Their Overture Red Wine Glasses are the go-to glass for many oenophiles. You’ll be surprised at just how much they can improve the experience. The Overture wine glasses feature a greater surface area than typical designs, allowing the flavor to develop inside the glass. The large size helps the wine to open up and breathe.
Don’t forget to give it a good swirl before you take a sip!
She’s a health nut
Smoothies are a delicious way incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet. If there’s a woman on your Christmas list who’s big into juicing or smoothies, a new blender will definitely put a smile on her face. One top pick is the Keyton Personal Blender. This model includes a single-serve, 21-ounce portable sports bottle that she can bring to work or the gym.
This personal blender makes preparing smoothies or juices so easy. The fruits and vegetables are blended in a portable container. Just throw in the ingredients, give it a zap, and go! And, since it’s machine washable, cleanup is a breeze!
