I’m both a home cook and someone who loves to give gifts, so this Domesticate Yourself post seems like the perfect combination of two favorite hobbies.  With the holidays quickly approaching, it can be a daunting task to find great gifts for everyone on your list.  What do they want?!  What do they need?! Will they like this?! Well no more guessing! Today I have curated my top ten list of best gifts for the home cook.

gifts for the cook

1. Kitchen Aid stand mixer [because everyone needs one!]
2. Nonstick wok [a fabulous gift, and not just for Chinese food!]
3. Microplane zester and grater [a perfect stocking stuffer or small Hanukkah gift and really useful.]
4. Zyliss all cheese rotary grater [perfect for guests and a ‘wow’ factor!]
5. Wusthof classic 7 piece knife block [a great starter set of excellent knives.]
6. Crate and Barrel marble utensil holder [gorgeous and functional!]
7. Nordic Ware mini scone pan [not typically someone might buy for themselves and definitely a fun surprise.]
8. Soda Stream [unlimited sparkling water, need I say more?!]
9. Williams Sonoma striped dishcloth [another stocking stuffer or small Hanukkah gift, who isn’t in need of more dishcloths?]

10. Global class steak knives set of 4 [a gorgeous and sharp set of steak knives that matches back to most silverware sets.]

These gifts range from modest to more extravagant in price.  I would love to receive a few of these babies for the holidays this year!  What’s on your list?  And what are your go-to gifts for home cooks and chefs alike?  Leave your ideas in the comment section below, I would love to hear from you!  Happy Holidays to you and yours…XOXO.
