Obviously I spend A LOT of time in my kitchen. I know what I like and what I don’t like.
I definitely do NOT like extra gadgets that are not useful- or are considered “novelty” items. They just clutter drawers and are usually a waste of space. I DO like to have one quality item instead of three crappy ones, and I really like items that are multi-purposed.
But I also LOVE a good deal…like really love a good deal! So, you know I always take value into consideration.
If you are on the same page, keep reading, I have some GREAT gift ideas for the cooking enthusiast in your life, whether that is mom, dad, daughter, son, aunt, uncle, or friend. I also have included my favorite gifts for the grilling enthusiast and bartender!
These are tried and true culinary items that I love and use in my kitchen. The majority of these are Amazon kitchen items (purchased thru Amazon), so if you do not have an Amazon Prime Membership, that is a great place to start (it also makes a great gift idea!!)! Free shipping and two day shipping is definitely worth the membership (we also love Prime Video).
