Good morning and happy Tuesday! I do not know about you but the first Monday back after a long weekend is always a little rough. As you saw yesterday Samantha and I are taking time this week to compose some amazing gift guides for you to utilize this Holiday season! Since today is typically a food post, I wanted to take some time to really focus on the kitchen and list out all of my favorite gifts to give / receive (and hopefully K actually reads this one and takes note of what we still need in our kitchen!). I should also mention that this guide is composed of almost exclusively Williams-Sonoma gifts - this is not because we are sponsored, it is because I am obsessed.
Alright without further ado, the Kitchen Gift Guide!
#1 | Williams-Sonoma Lever Wine Opener & Foil Cutter - $99.95
Do you really love someone who loves wine? Then do I have the gift for you! I got this for my mom a few years ago and I am obsessed and threaten to steal it from her on a regular basis. Not only is this gift totally functional, but it is also super fun to pull out in front of guests and always starts a great conversation!
#2 | Riedel Vinum Celebration Cabernet Gasses - $99.00
Not that you need to pair a second gift with a $99 wine opener, but if you did this glass set would be the perfect choice. If you live in a house that needs durable wine glasses, then these are the glasses for you. K and I have kept our set alive for almost a full year (which is impressive for us)
#3 | Le-Creuset Signature Round Dutch Oven 5.5 qt: - $320.00
While this might be the most expensive item on the list, it is also my favorite. Samantha and I both know the joys of owning a Dutch Oven (I mean, Samantha has even posted a recipe about using hers!) and Le-Creuset is an amazing and super trustworthy brand. I believe this should be a staple in every home and I assure you that it would be the gift that stole Christmas for anyone who spends time in the kitchen.
#4 | Breville Panini Press & Grill - $129.00
K if you are reading this I WANT THIS! I want this panini press bad! Not only do I have a love of delicious melty sandwiches, but I also have a dream of hosting a grilled cheese party someday (don't worry, I will detail this when it actually happens because believe me, it will happen) and this panini press would be a mandatory addition to my kitchen.
This might be a spendy item on the list, but I am obsessed with the GoldTouch bakeware essentials. I have posted about this set before (here) and I have been using the crap about of my pans and baking tins this season and they have not disappointed! Not only are they super high quality and actually are truly non-stick, but they are also SO pretty that you would be proud to show them off to any guest!
# 6 | All-Clad Stainless-Steel Measuring Cups and Spoon Set - $50.00
Need a gift to pair with your amazing bakeware? How about a matching set of Measuring Cups and Spoon set! I have found that for a majority of my friends / family we all have a hodgepodge set of measuring cups and spoons and there is just something so fun and so adult about having a matching set of anything :)
# 7 | OXO Cookie Scoop - $19.00
A gift to pair with the GoldTouch Bakeware? Why a cookie scoop of course!!! I have searched high and low, and this cookie scoop is by far the best.
# 8 | Dorie’s Cookies - $20.00
Another great pairing option with your bakeware or your cookie scoop! This book is amazing and super fun - not to mention the pictures are everything. Even if your friends do not bake, this would be a great coffee table book!
#9 | Red Tartan Tall Mugs - $24.00
Everyone needs a set of Christmas mugs, so why not make them flannel!? Okay, maybe that is not the best logic, but these are super cute and I know if I received this set I would be over the moon.
# 10 | Williams-Sonoma Classic Hot Chocolate -$19.95
The perfect gift to pair with your new flannel mugs!! Oh and have you seen the videos for Hot Chocolate Floats on our Facebook? Just sayin...
