From a maple wood reversible cutting board to the best cookbooks to a precision cooker, you will find the right gift for the cooking aficionado in your life.

Cookbooks and Comedy

Cookbooks, food and wine books, and art books remain the top Christmas gifts this year. Books are the best kitchen gifts ideas no matter the age or skill level of your loved one. Try books like River Café London: Thirty Years of Recipes and the Story of Much-Loved Restaurant for a present that is both for the food lover and the auteur. With lavish imagery and delicious Italian recipes, it is bound to be a favorite for generations to come. For a fun and unique look at breakfast, give Breakfast: The Most Important Book About the Best Meal of the Day by the editors of Extra Crispy. You won’t find everyday food fare in this humorous look at breakfast, including how to make your own Pop-Tart Haus.

Knives and Cutting Boards

Your favorite chef may already own a set of professional knives, but do they have a quality cutting board? Try the John Boos Chop-N-Slice Maple Wood Reversible Cutting Board, which is guaranteed to outlast the average board. Because it is reversible, it serves double-duty in the kitchen and protects their knives. By the way, if your loved one does not have an incredible knife set already, check out Global’s 3-Piece knife set. This set includes a chef’s knife, a utility knife, and a paring knife that can slice anything like a professional.


Instant pot, pressure cooker, slow cooker – what does your culinary enthusiast prefer? The Crock-Pot SCCPVL610-S is the perfect appliance for the traditional home chef. Convenient and affordable, this appliance can cook a six-pound roast and feed several people. A chef can set the digital clock display for thirty minutes to twenty hours. The Hamilton Beach Set n’ Forget is ideal for parties and large group gatherings like the Christmas potluck. Choose a cooker that is both convenient and has extra safety features like a digital clock and a lid that clasps.

Spices and Herbs


Nothing adds delicious flavor to a dish like homegrown herbs. Buy your cooking enthusiast the Click & Grow Indoor Smart Fresh Herb Garden Kit. This easy little kit includes a light, meaning that it can be placed anywhere, even a dark room. You can also find beautiful Eco-Planter Organic Herb Kits and Herb Garden Gift Baskets at online retailers. What are some other options? Does your loved one love spice? Then buy them Ghost Pepper sauce, some Sriracha, or classic Frank’s red Hot Sauce. Another fun option is the Bring the Heat Sea Salt, a collection of salts in flavors like “campfire” and “Hot Steve”.


For the Grill Master

Whether using an outside grill or an at-home pitmaster, there are many gadgets that will make great Christmas gifts for delicious grilling. The Grillbot Automatic Grill Cleaner cleans a dirty grill, no hassle. Give a Griller Smoker Gift set, kabob grilling baskets, or flavor infusing grilling wraps. The chef in your life will appreciate your culinary Christmas present. Enjoy making new memories while cooking up great food!
