Coming up with kitchen gift ideas for the cook in your life can be tricky. They might be gadget lovers, but maybe they’re more minimalist kitchens. Are they wearing crossover or strappy aprons? And of all the amazing cookbooks released this year, how do you know which one is best for them?
Still, there’s nothing better than finding the perfect kitchen gift for the home chef on your list. (Play your cards right and they might even invite you to dinner.) And here at Bon Appétit, we want to help. Throughout the year, our editors work hard to find the best cookware, specialty ingredients and tasty treats on the market, literally giving our approval to the ones we love the most. And to make things even easier, we’ve rounded up the goodies we couldn’t stop thinking of in a whole list of deliciously curated gift guides.
Below are our top gift ideas for young and refined palates, for cookbook connoisseurs, and for foodies who live for puzz. Still can’t find the right gift for your beloved foodie? We’ll be updating this page throughout the holiday season with new ideas, so be sure to come back the next time you’re feeling stumped.
Play your cards right and you’ll be refunded in brownies.
