Holiday Gift Ideas For The Cooks In Your Family

Updated: Nov 22, 2018

It’s that time of year! Holidays and gifting season is upon us. Are you wanting to find the perfect gift for a special someone who would rather be in the kitchen than anywhere else? I’ve got you covered! I thought it would be fun to create a list of all the things I LOVE in my kitchen (and other ideas I’d recommend for the cook in your life). So, here we go!

Stacy Lyn Harris is a well-known homesteader and Alabama chef – and also a very dear friend of mine. In this cookbook, Stacy Lyn shares more than 100 cherished-family recipes, free-range meat dishes and southern classics with a twist. The four sections of the book cover fresh, healthy food from the garden, pasture, woods and water. This cookbook is full of wonderful recipes, beautiful photos and Stacy Lyn’s amazing family. It is such a beautiful and useful book that I leave it out in my kitchen. It’s too pretty for the bookshelf!

Every cook should have a sturdy stainless steel cookware set. Well-known and liked by chefs, this Calphalon cookware set is the one I use on the daily in my own kitchen. This set features everything the cook in your family needs for searing, simmering, boiling, frying and more – and they look beautiful in any kitchen.

Any good cook will tell you that having a good knife is a MUST! I highly recommend this Classic Hollow Edge Santoku 7-inch knife. Made by the famous Zilling J.A. Henckels Company. This Spanish-made knife, featuring German stainless steel, is so durable that it has quickly become the go-to knife in my kitchen drawer.

Of course, no gift guide for cooks is complete without the Magnolia Table. A #1 New York Times bestseller, this book includes 125 of Joanna Gaines’ personal favorites and a modern selection of American classics. I love that these dishes also incorporate homegrown, seasonal produce.

Hands covered in flour and spices? No problem! Grab this elegant iron cookbook stand to gift on its own, or pair it with a cookbook your special someone can use together. This sturdy stand will also hold tablet computers for those who prefer a digital cookbook.

How cute are these copper measuring spoons? My favorite thing about these spoons is how fun and functional they are. They would make the perfect gift, stocking stuffer or hostess gift for the person in your life who loves whipping up a tasty dish or dessert.

I’m always on the lookout for great cooking gift ideas. What are some of your favorite gifts for the cook in your life? I’d love to hear your thoughts! Enjoy your holiday shopping!
