And, I’m back for part two of my holiday gift guide for the food lover/home cook extraordinaire on your holiday gift list!
If you missed the first installment of my gift guide focusing on small gifts/stocking stuffers, you can find it here. Today I’m focusing on gifts all under $50! Each of these will be absolutely LOVED by your favorite foodie and won’t break the bank. As I mentioned in my last gift guide post, everything I mention here are products I personally own or have a lot of experience with.
So, here we go…
Cuisinart Smart Stick Immersion Blender – I’ve had my immersion blender forever and it’s still ticking away and I love it. I’ve used it for soups, baby food, apple butter, you name it! It’s so easy to clean and takes up zero space in your cabinet. The link above is for the blender and a few other awesome attachments to make this blender even more versatile.
Lodge Cast Iron Skillet – I’m new to the cast iron game (I know, seriously, what was I waiting for????), but I absolutely LOOOOOVE my skillets. Yes, I meant that to be plural, because I have this cast iron skillet in two sizes and one comes with a lid. Cast iron is amazing for getting a great crust on any protein, making delicious cornbread, fajitas and so much more. On my to do list is to make some delicious desserts in it. You do need to take special care of cast iron so it doesn’t rust on you, but once you get the hang of it, you’re good to go!
Granite Ware Canning Kit – I got into canning this summer after I got this canning kit for my birthday. I’ve canned a variety of fruits since (I haven’t made my way onto veggies, yet) and am even canning gifts for friends and family for the holidays. It’s such a great hobby and I’m so happy I started with it. This kit has everything you need to get started – just grab some mason jars and you’re ready to start! My favorite canning cookbook? Canning for New Generation! Pick it up as a great added bonus to this already awesome gift!
Chef’n Pop + Pour Mixing Bowl Set – I LOVE these bowls! My favorite part of them is the handle. Having the handle above the bowl versus on the side of the bowl makes it so much easier when pouring batter. Also, since cabinet space is at a premium in my kitchen, the fact that the handle folds down for storage is HUGE.
Magazine Subscription – I love me a foodie magazine. My favorites are Food & Wine, Cooks Illustrated and Bon Appetit. While that may sound like complete magazine overload, they’re each so different, so at least one of them is bound to be a good fit for your the foodie friend/family member on your gift list. Food & Wine is not only focused on food and wine, but there are also bits of travel and food-focused human interest stories included. Cooks Illustrated really gets down to the science of cooking and also focuses on best practices and product reviews. Bon Appetit has tons of recipes and restaurant highlights.
Well, there you go! Check back next week when I share my favorite foodie gifts under $100!
