Unique Gift Ideas for the Cook:

I’m hopeless in the kitchen, but I’m lucky enough to have some wonderful cooks in my life. And since I love to eat and that requires keeping the cooks happy, I’ve learned stir up some sweet gift ideas to keep them creating delicious dishes I can savor and enjoy.

  • Do you have someone in your life who loves to bake? Wrap up a cake decorating set and a cookbook on cake decorating in a cake pan with an apron and hot mitts, and tuck in a gift certificate to a cake decorating class at your local craft store or bakery.

  • Give the king of the grill a hot mitt filled with a digital food thermometer*, a couple of jars of homemade rubs and a gift certificate to the meat market. (*This thermometer is recommended by the master of the grill here at FatWallet, Troy. He says it is the KING of all thermometers and is worth the money!)
  • Any busy mom would love kitchen gadgets that save time such as a crock pot, food processor, mini chopper, mandolin slicer, and pressure cooker. (Hey guys, remember it’s always wise to get her something in a little velvet box that’s measured in carats if you’re wanting to stay on her good side when you’re giving her a household appliance!)
  • Give the elegant gift of monogrammed table linens, apron, or dish towels wrapped in a beautiful reusable grocery bag. Check with your local craft store or sewing store for the name of someone who does monogramming to save some money.
  • The raw food chef would love a gift certificate to the health food store and a juicer or a blender with a recipe book of smoothies, healthy drinks, nut butters, chutneys, etc.
  • What cook wouldn’t love a Kindle or Nook tablet pre-loaded with several awesome cookbooks and cooking magazines?
  • A great set of knives is a must in the kitchen and if your favorite cook doesn’t have some, they’ll surely be an appreciated gift!
