I'm getting my holiday shopping done early this year since our baby will be making his appearance next month. As I've been researching gifts for family members, I thought it would be fun to create a "foodie" gift guide from items that I have and love using in my own kitchen. I can't believe I've never posted a holiday gift guide on this blog before!

Below is a list of ten gift ideas, ranging in price from $8 to $100.

Brownie Bar Pan {$8}

I received this pan as a gift from my sister-in-law a few years ago. This brownie pan is a great way to make sure your brownies all have crispy edges {my favorite part}!

Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract {$12}

I have a mini collection of vanilla extracts for baking, and this Madagascar Bourbon flavored extract is one of my favorites. I received this as a gift for Christmas last year, and it's still at the front of my spice shelf.

Silpat Non-Stick Silicone Baking Mat {$19}

I have a few different non-stick baking mats, but this Silpat version is the best one in my opinion. It cleans easily and you never have to worry about cookies or other food items sticking to your baking sheets. The siplat comes in a variety of sizes/prices - I have the half sheet version.

The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook {$21}

Deb's cookbook from 2012 is still one of my favorites. Her smitten kitchen food blog is one of the first I started reading. She also has a great round-up of Thanksgiving recipes on her blog that I'll be looking over in the coming week!

The Complete America's Test Kitchen TV Show Cookbook 2001-2017 {$27}

America's Test Kitchen has every kitchen and cooking tip you can think of, and their complete "TV Show Cookbook" summarizes them all. The latest version of their cookbook was released in early October, covering shows from 2001 - 2017. I have the 2015 version and it's awesome - full of hundreds of wonderful recipes.

Le Creuset Stoneware 1-Quart Utensil Crock {$30}

I received two Le Creuset crocks as a wedding shower gift a few years ago, and they are still going strong in my kitchen. The one quart size is perfect for holding kitchen utensils while not taking up too much counter space. This comes in a variety of colors - "Caribbean" is pictured here.

Amazon Echo Dot {$50}

K and I actually have the full-sized Amazon Echo, but this Echo Dot would also be a fun gift for someone that loves spending time in the kitchen. We use our Amazon Echo every day to listen to the radio, play podcasts, and our favorite music. It's featured on our counter next to the spice rack and I can't imagine a better place for it.

Emile Henry Baking Dish {$80}


My hands down favorite item in our kitchen is this "BBQ fish pan" baking dish from Emile Henry. We purchased this using wedding gift cards a few years ago on a recommendation. We use it mostly for roasting vegetables and squash, but it's main use is supposed to be for seafood. See the grill marks? Nothing sticks to this baking dish, food heats evenly, and it cleans very easily.

Capresso Conical Burr Coffee Grinder {$87}

For your favorite coffee lover, I highly recommend this conical burr grinder. I received this as a Christmas gift last year from my brother and use it almost every day. There is a range of options for grinding beans, from extra fine to course. I used to have a $10 coffee grinder - I promise you this upgraded version is worth every penny.

Le Creuset Mini Cocottes with Cookbook {$100}

These Mini Cocottes from Le Creuset are so cute and perfect for a baker or cook in your life. I received these as a Christmas gift last year and I love them! Each cocotte holds 8 ounces and is made of Le Creuset stoneware. This set of four also comes with a cookbook including 25 recipe ideas.
