Gift season has arrived. Honestly, this cultural tradition can be hard for me. I have a hard time spending money on gifts for people when it’s a gamble if they will use it or not. I don’t want to give them something that just creates clutter in their life. I want to give them something practical, tailored to them, and that they’d enjoy. For as many people as we buy gifts for, this is not an easy task.
So for this season, I created lists on Amazon for my different “types” of friends. Not to be stereotypical, but hey, when it’s helpful and beneficial to them, I’m sure they’ll forgive me.
Here is a compiled list of gifts for those that love cooking and being in the kitchen; my foodie friends and family. When spending an hour or two in the kitchen a day, it’s enjoyable to have beautiful and quality kitchen items. It not only makes cooking relaxing it also helps create a welcoming ambiance for those that you’re hosting.
Since much of my blog is orientated around food, I thought maybe my readers may have an interest in this list. So, here is a list of kitchen gifts all under fifty dollars (all but the apron). Each beautiful, welcoming and quite practical.
