2019 Holiday Gift Guide

Kitchen gifts for every loved one

Gift giving has always been fundamentally enjoyable for me, but in practice, I struggle to find the right thing that says I love you, I appreciate you, and I care about you. Over time, I’ve learned that when I can’t give a gift from my kitchen, the next best thing is a gift for the kitchen.

Food is a universal language, and food-related gifts are universally appreciated. This year I wanted to curate a guide for everyone on your list, from the teen who needs protein-packed breakfast, to the high school or college grad setting up their first kitchen, to the newlywed starting a journey of cooking, to the seasoned chef. You know, that friend who always brings the best dish to the potluck.

I hope my finds bring joy to someone you love.
