The Best Kitchen Gifts for Chefs, Foodies, and Home Cooks
1. For The Dinner Party Host: Reclaimed Pine Serving Tray
This beautiful wooden tray is a perfect hostess gift, or for anyone with a farmhouse-style kitchen! It’s Fair Trade certified and finished with a food-safe, plant-based wax, works as a charcuterie or cheese board, and is also a lovely way to display other appetizers.
2. For the New Home Owners: HENCKELS 15-Piece Knife Set
This budget-friendly knife set from Henckles was gifted to me more than 15 years ago, and I still use them all the time! It comes with everything you need to cut, chop, and dice your way through the kitchen, including major must-haves like a bread knife, steak knife, chef’s knife, and more. This gift is perfect for anyone who just moved into their first house or is starting to take up cooking. It even earned a top spot on my list of the best budget kitchen knives.
3. For the Cheese Lover: Cellars at Jasper Hill Gift Crate
If you’re at a loss as to what to get that person who seems to have everything, then you can’t go wrong with a yummy cheese-tasting box! This one in particular includes a taste of Vermont’s finest cheeses including Cabot clothbound cheddar and alpha tolman, along with crackers, apricot preserves, and mapled pecans. If you’re still searching for the best kitchen gifts at the last minute, this is a great option!
4. For the Traditional Cook: Le Creuset Dutch Oven
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: This Dutch oven from Le Creuset is a must-have for every kitchen. From slow-cooking soups to stews, sauces, and more, you can use this Dutch oven for just about anything (my Roasted Tomato Soup is a personal favorite!). Whether you’re replacing your family’s 20-year-old Dutch oven or giving this as a holiday housewarming gift, anyone would be excited to receive a classic culinary must-have.
5. For The Movie Night Family: Williams Sonoma Amish Popcorn Library
You can’t have movie nights at home without oodles and oodles of popcorn. This Amish popcorn library from Williams-Sonoma is grown in the heart of Northern Indiana’s Amish country and makes a great gift for the snacker in your life. The box comes with 12 different popcorn varieties, so your giftee can even host a cozy at-home watch party with tons of snacks for everyone to try.
6. For the Air Frying Newbie: Instant Pot 6-Quart Air Fryer
Air fryers are so popular right now, I just had to include one on my list of the best kitchen gifts! Chances are, there’s someone on your Christmas shopping list who has been “thinking about getting an air fryer,” but hasn’t done it yet. At 6 quarts, this stainless steel air fryer from Instant Pot is a large enough size for most meals or snacks, and it features an easy, digital display that can help newbies as they’re getting started.
7. For The Pizza Addict: Ooni Pizza Oven
Pizza Fridays never looked so easy — or delicious! This pizza oven from Ooni makes creating your perfect pizza at home possible and is a great choice if you’re shopping for the best kitchen gifts. But the cooking possibilities don’t stop there! Your giftee can also use it to cook perfectly seared steak, roasted vegetables, and more. The chimney is removable, making for an easy clean-up process.
8. For the Fan: The Seasoned Mom Merchandise
If you’re making a kitchen gift box for the cook and food lover in your life, we have some cute extras to add from my new shop! Choose from items like aprons, dish towels, and more to add the final touches to your homemade foodie gift basket. You can even pair my merch with my homemade vanilla extract, this yummy 5-ingredient Christmas snack mix, or if you’re pressed for time, some classic store-bought cookies.
9. For the Salad Maker: Williams Sonoma Wooden Serving Bowl
If you know someone who is a serious salad connoisseur, this wooden serving bowl is the perfect gift for them. Made from sustainably grown and harvested acacia and teak, this bowl is versatile thanks to its large 15-inch diameter. The set also includes a serving fork and spoon, so it’s great for putting out a big salad for a dinner party.
10. For the One on the Go: Stanley 20oz Flowstate Quencher Tumblers
These temperature-controlled Stanley stainless steel tumblers are so good they have an almost cult following! One of my favorite products from the summer, this tumbler is designed to fit perfectly in your cup holder and can keep cold drinks cold for up to 8 hours. They come in multiple colors and are perfect kitchen gifts for moms on the go and your kiddos too! My boys love these, and use them daily at both school and at home.
11. For the Southern Food Lover: Savor The Flavor Charleston Red Rice
I am always looking for last-minute stocking stuffers, so when I found this rice I knew I had to add it to my cart. This rice packet is made with ingredients like tomatoes, bacon, and bell peppers. It’s perfect for a side dish, or you can add beans and sausage for a delicious southern-inspired meal (and in that case, I recommend making my Southern Cornbread with it!).
12. For the PB&J Fanatic: Bonne Maman Made for You Gift Box
Another quintessential item for any list of kitchen gifts, this jam set from Bonne Maman is a “sweet” hostess gift or stocking stuffer for anyone who loves jams and preserves! The gift box, which comes with eight mini jars of jam, is packaged in a gift box that’s covered in beautifully illustrated flowers and fruits. Flavors include apricot, fig, orange marmalade, wild blueberry, and more.
13. For the Hostess With the Mostess: Samson Serving Set
Boho retailer Anthropologie has some of the best kitchen gifts, so you can never go wrong! I have this serving set and I’m often asked where they came from. They’re simple enough to use with everything from salads to casseroles, but they add a little bit of something special to the table. Plus, they come in 4 different colors — perfect for every individual style! You can choose from gold, honey, silver, or black colorways to best fit your gift recipient’s style and kitchen decor.
14. For the Olive Oil Fanatic: Brightland Olive Oil Gift Set
Not only can a frequent chef always use more olive oil, but this foursome gift set from Brighland also includes delicious balsamic vinegar and champagne vinegar, too! All of their extra virgin olive oils are made on small family farms in California, so you know you are getting the best of the best! Although I love this olive oil set in particular, any of Brightland’s sets would be a lovely treat for a home cook.
If you’re looking to splurge a little on a useful display gift, these handmade crocks are pricey but worth it! You can use them for year-round decor with artificial branches and fresh flowers throughout the changing seasons. They’re also great for storing big kitchen utensils on the counter in an attractive way — like wooden spoons, spatulas, and ladles. Handmade in Vermont, these stunning one-of-a-kind pieces make the perfect kitchen gifts and despite the handcrafted design, are safe to pop in the dishwasher.

It’s great for teenage athletes, or for those of us who are just getting older! My boys love using this on their post-soccer sore muscles.
22. For the Lounger: Cotton Waffle Textured Bath Robe
One of the best luxuries in life? Throwing on a soft robe after you get out of the shower or bath.

You can pick from four different colors and two size options (small/medium or large/extra large) for your giftee.

25. For The Napper: Bearaby Cotton Napper Weighted Blanket
There’s nothing better than curling up on the couch with a blanket while you watch your favorite holiday movie. This hand-knit weighted blanket from Bearaby is made with organic cotton, and I love that it’s both sustainable and lightweight. Perfect for cuddling up during the winter months or for extra deep sleep.
26. For the One Who’s Stressed: Slow North Hot & Cold Neck Shoulder Wrap
If they spend their days at work hunched over a computer, this hot and cold neck wrap will be a lifesaver. It’s unscented, making it a good option for loved ones who are more sensitive to fragrance, and they can use it as either a hot or cold compress by sticking it in the microwave or freezer. It comes in five fun patterns, too.
27. For the Decorator: Rattan Boho Vase
Boho decor is so popular right now, and I love this rattan-covered vase! It goes nicely in almost any room, with any color flower. It’s been a surprisingly useful purchase for me! I adore the idea of gifting it in tandem with a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
28. For the Work-From-Homer: Joy Creative Shop Personalized Stationery
Maybe they’re constantly sending out thank you notes or just adore the look of all the sweet things Joy Creative Shop has to offer. Whatever the reason, a pack of personalized stationery makes for a great gift! I have the Whimsical Calligraphy personalized stationery in the navy font and love it — the quality is amazing, and the design is so cute!
29. For The Snuggle Bunny: L.L. Bean Winter Fleece Robe
Speaking of cozy, this zip-up fleece robe is the perfect option for cuddling up by the fireplace as they sip some yummy hot chocolate. Thanks to the toasty all-fleece construction, this robe is incredibly warm but still breathable, and it feels like you’re wearing a soft blanket at all times!

We love all of the handmade leather goods from this nearby Lynchburg, Virginia-based company, Meanwhile Back on the Farm.

I love that you can choose the length of the crossbody chain, while the Italian leather construction is excellent quality.
31. For The Art Collector: Sara Fitz Art
A perfect present for new homeowners, Sara Fitz has a ton of fun prints to spice up their space this winter. From floral designs to whimsical animal portraits (and so much more!), you can find the sweetest art prints, stationery, and home goods for your giftee!
32. For the Relaxed One: UGG Tasman Women’s Slippers
In my mind, there’s nothing better than slipping your feet into plush wool during the cool winter months. I have these UGG slippers and they are so easy to slip on and off, plus they can be worn indoors or outdoors all winter long. Pair them with your favorite pair of jeans or grab them when you’re on your way out to walk the dog but don’t want the hassle of tying your shoes.
33. For the Jewelry Wearer: Farmhouse Pottery Ring Dish
We all know that person in our life who’s always misplacing their jewelry around the house. I have this ring dish sitting on my bathroom counter and I love using it to keep my everyday jewelry safe and accessible. Plus, it’s the perfect size for a stocking stuffer, and the color is neutral to match everyone’s decor.
