Gift Giving Part 1 - The Chef

I get so much joy out of Christmas shopping for family and friends. I love the entire process - the picking, the wrapping, the putting under the tree & especially the opening. 

With Christmas getting closer I'm going to continue this series of gift giving. Yesterday I posted about gifts for the husband who "doesn't need anything." Today I'll be posting about gifts for the one who finds their joy in the kitchen. 

1. OXO Salad Dressing Shaker - This little gadget is perfect for creating new salad dressings on the fly!
2. Le Creuset 7-1/4Q round dutch oven - The size is big enough for anything from chili to gumbo! (I love the dune color because it can go with any kitchen!)
3. KitchenAid 5Q Mixer - Classic gift & will probably be the most used item in their kitchen! Black Friday is always the perfect day for getting these on sale. 
4. Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child - Such a great book to give as a gift or put in a gift exchange. There are some great stories & tips in there!
5. Libbey Square Glass Bowls - These are great for food preparation or presentation! They are dishwasher safe & a great addition to any kitchen. 
6. Zwilling J.A. Henckels Pure 9-Piece Knife Block Set - Includes everything you need to have the perfect knife set. Jacob & I actually have these exact knives and LOVE them!
7. Cuisinart Mini Food Processor - I actually use a chopper but this would be nice to have when you have A LOT of dicing to do! And safer too!
8. Garlic Peeler - I absolutely HATE peeling garlic but this tool makes it so quick & best part - your hands don't smell like garlic for the rest of the day!
9. Williams Sonoma Spatula's - Best ones I've ever owned! Word of warning though - the clear ones are really pretty now but a few spaghetti sauce meals and they turn that grimey orange color!
10. Christmas Calories Apron - Perfect reminder while making all those delicious holiday favorites!

Happy Christmas shopping!!
