Personalized kitchen gifts are for those who love to cook or for gourmands. Kitchen essentials are also practical presents for young couples who will be moving into their first home. Personalized linens like dinner napkins and placemats are stylish entertaining essentials that would be perfect as hostess gifts. They would also serve as a wonderful complement to other kitchen gifts. Here are a few cooking and food gifts that are sure to delight your favorite cook.
Kitchen towels help keep our hands dry and our counters clean; they also add a decorative touch to the cooking space, making them a unique gift choice. Cotton towels and waffle weave towels are available in different styles so find a towel to match the recipient’s kitchen decor. Towels can be monogrammed to make personalized kitchen gifts for that extra special touch.
Monogrammed aprons in attractive prints or classic flax-colored linen are personalized linens that can help the recipient make a style statement in the kitchen. Look for aprons with generous pockets to keep cooking tools and towels handy.
Choose a set of gorgeous airtight canisters for tea, coffee and sugar to store weekly rations in style. If the recipient’s kitchen has a retro look or is accented with country charm, opt for sweet tins in pretty pastels and attractive lettering. For kitchens decorated in classic style, select metal tins with a brushed steel finish. Pantry jars and canisters in bright colors and attractive patterns can be filled with cake mixes or cookies and given as holiday gifts.
If the recipient loves to experiment with new styles of cooking or trying exotic cuisines, choose interesting books featuring a good collection of recipes. If you are choosing gift for a young couple, look for books with an array of helpful tips, like how to use a pastry bag, debone a chicken or thicken a sauce. Recipe collections with convenient charts and tables on herbs, spices, flours and more are handy to have around.
Personalized kitchen gifts like monogrammed mugs are just right for tea time. Complement the mugs with matching bowls to serve crackers or dips.
