gift giving guide: for the cook

I feel that everyone knows at least ONE person who really loves to be in the kitchen.  What makes being in the kitchen fun, in my opinion, is having all the gadgets that help make cooking and baking easy and fun!  The great thing about today's gift giving guide is that it can apply to so many people- family, friends, coworkers- you name it!

 I just love the vintage feel of these sweet recipe cards!  Perfect for someone who loves to cook/bake, or even a bride to be. Each set contains 12 recipe cards.

How adorable are these measuring spoons?  I love that they are organized on a safety pin- so homey!  Made of solid brass, this is a unique and fun way to measure spices while cooking.  Set comes with 5 spoons.

Not only is this pie carrier cute as a button, it is also extremely functional! It is completely insulated to keep your pies the correct temperature.  It is also made with a non-skid surface so that your precious dessert will not be destroyed in transit.

I think that this is one of the most useful and vibrant cooking sets, EVER!  I love the bright colors and the easy to store shape of each item. Set of 9 includes: Large mixing bowl, Colander, Sieve, Small mixing bowl w/ measurements, 5 Measuring cups: 1 Cup, ½ Cup, 1/3 Cup, ¼ Cup, 1/6 Cup.

I truly ADORE the whimsy that this potholder & oven mitt set provides.  Again, something about the bright colors draws me in, and everyone knows I am a sucker for polka dots!  The plus?  They are machine washable.

This is one of the most easy to use gadgets in the kitchen.  You don't really know how much you need it until you have one! It has a very easy to press hinge that slices and dices various types of produce. The clear plastic compartment at the bottom catches the chopped produce and can measure up to 2 and 1/2 cups!

All I can say is what is better than a personalized monogrammed roasting pan? 
"Roast meats, poultry and vegetables to perfection in this heavy-duty stainless-steel roasting pan from All-Clad. High sides reduce splattering, and the well-proportioned upright handles are easy to grasp when you're lifting the pan in and out of the oven."

Hands down- the best wedding gift we received. Although they are quite the investment, they are made incredibly well and make even the trickiest of recipes much easier! Includes flat beater, dough hook, wire whip and pouring shield.

This recipe box is made out of sturdy maple wood and can be personalized.  It comes with 100 recipe 4 x 6 recipe cards AND 12 preprinted dividers for organizing recipes: Seafood, Desserts, Soup & Salad, Vegetables, Entertaining, Pasta, Side Dishes, Meat, Holiday, Poultry, Bread and Hors D’Oeuvres.  The neatest thing? You get an embosser with maple stand and "Kitchen Of" embosser plate, for personalizing recipe cards, cookbooks, stationery and more.

I love having organized grocery lists.  I cannot ever make it through the grocery store successfully remembering everything we need unless I have a list.  I love that this one has a magnet on the back so you can stick it on your fridge and write things down as you run out of items.
