2022 Holiday Gift Guide - Gifts for the Kitchen | Taste As You Go

Gifts for the Kitchen

  • Five Two Silicone Baking Mat | $15

    I have a love/hate relationship with silicone baking mats. When I'm not struggling with washing them so they feel clean, I'm struggling with getting them to fit properly on our baking sheets. That's why I love the idea of these silicone baking mats from Food52. You can actually trim them to fit the pans you have!

  • The Cookie Tray by Souper Cubes, Set of 2 | $29.95 

    If you know someone who likes to bake, then this might be the perfect gift for them. Especially if they're also someone who believes that freshly baked cookies should always be readily available.

  • Paper Source Blue Bento Lunch Box | $17.50

    I work at a school, and I'm really fortunate that I'm able to eat lunch in the dining hall with the students and faculty. But there are some times when I have to grab my lunch and run back to my office for a call or a meeting. If I had something like that, then I wouldn't need to use (and return) the dining hall plates.

  • Nitro Cold Brew Coffee Maker | $219

    Imagine how happy the coffee lover in your life would be to have this cold brew coffee maker in their own kitchen. They wouldn't need to run to the coffee shop every time they wanted a cold brew!

  • Baking Steel | $129

    Thanks to our weekly menu plan posts, most of you already know that Pizza Night is a regular thing in our house. But even after all these years of making homemade pizza on Friday nights, we still don't own a baking steel. I hear it really makes a difference to the texture of the crust.

  • Uashmama Wine Bag & Cooler | $44

    Made from water- and stain-resistant paper, these wine bags are so, so chic! I love that you can choose a bag with or without a cooler to keep your wine chilled while you're on the go.

  • Cuisinart Chef's Classic 12-Quart Stockpot | $69.99

    Now that I make my own chicken stock and vegetable broth, I've determined that the pasta pot I have isn't sufficient for making large quantities of stock. Something like this will help when it comes time to make another big batch for the chest freezer!

  • Schmidt Brothers ® Acacia Downtown Knife Block | $124.99

    Do you know someone who's looking for a stylish way to store their knives on the counter? This knife block is beautiful to look at and displays blades between acacia wood and acrylic in a slim stand. (The knives shown above aren't included.)
