Get it from Southern Gatherings on Etsy for $17.

Get a two-piece set from Lakeside Express on Etsy for $33.45 (available in two colors).

4. A 6-quart slow cooker that'll make preparing delicious homemade soups way easier. Dump a bunch of ingredients in, set it, and forget it until the sweet smells of warm soup waft your way., Amazon

Since both of my parents worked, I grew up understanding the almighty power of the slow cooker. So much so, that this very slow cooker is one of the first things I bought for my own "adult" kitchen. Being able to program how long it cooks and have it bump to the warming setting automatically is great, especially when you plan to be out of the house all day. Then you just get to walk in to the smell of a finished dinner. It's great for making a million different things (a roast, pulled pork, mulled wine — the list is endless), but it really shines as a soup machine. The low-and-slow cook times really let all the flavors soak into the broth, and you can make a ton at once!

Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

5. A Chinese soup dumpling kit because putting soup inside a dumpling is really one of the most ingenious creations I've ever encountered, and learning how to make them yourself is A) a life skill and B) makes for a fun night in!

The contents of the kit
Uncommon Goods

This kit includes a five-piece bamboo steamer, parchment paper rounds, dumpling dough roller, filling wooden spatula, agar agar powder, instructions, and recipes!

Promising review: "I really liked the dough roller in this kit. It's definitely easier to get the dumpling wrappers nice and thin. Be sure to carefully read the measurements for the agar-agar powder, you don't need a lot. Though the agar-agar bag might look small, there's probably enough to make 15–20 batches... maybe more. It does take some time, but we were surprised how well the dumplings turned out on our first try! My brother loved it. They were DELICIOUS!" —Kim

Get it from Uncommon Goods for $60.

6. A powerful immersion blender so you can skip that part of the creamy soup-making process where you burn your hands transferring soup from the pot to the blender. Now you can get your puree away right in the pot!,

This multi-purpose blender comes with a whisk and milk frother attachments.

Promising review: "Love this immersion blender! Perfect for blending soups without having to dish it out into my high-speed blender and risk getting burned. Also used it to make the smoothest crepe batter I've ever made-no lumps and that of course, made my family thrilled! If you're looking for an easy, powerful immersion blender, look for further!" —Alisa Black

Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

7. A ceramic twist trivet perfect for safely and stylishly housing your piping hot pot of soup on the table. Soup is great, but we don't need to accidentally burn another tablecloth.


This ceramic is made by SIN, a Brooklyn-based, Asian woman-owned home goods company founded by Virginia Sin, who strives to combine function and form in her designs.

Get it from Food52 for $38 (available in two colors) or from SIN for $38 (available in four colors).

8. A clear can organizer bin for anyone with a can-crowded pantry who loves space optimization almost as much as they love soup.

A standing clear bin sitting on a shelf with an open front and a stack of seven cans of soup inside

Promising review: "I live in a very old home with small cabinets. This organizer fits into my pantry and holds my canned goods perfectly. Each one holds about nine cans. It also helps me keep the cans in date order. I had one leftover that I can use for soda in the refrigerator. It was more than I wanted to spend but worked perfectly and solved my problem. Totally worth the money!" —Jackie

Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

9. An adorable lidded soup bowl shaped like an acorn that's the stuff cozy cottagecore dreams are made of.

Silk & Ivy / Etsy

Silk & Ivy is a Miami-based small business selling a wide array of shirts and sweatshirts printed and embroidered with fun, trendy motifs.

Promising review: "This sweatshirt is so incredibly soft! The graphics are not overly bright as the picture shows, but I love how it looks. The shipping took over a month due to the coronavirus delays, but it was well worth the wait. I normally wear a size small, but I ordered a size medium for an oversized look and I LOVE how it fits! I will certainly be shopping here again :)" —Selena

Get it from Silk & Ivy on Etsy for $34 (available in sizes S—3XL and in seven colors).

11. A soup gift basket for anyone missing Mom's homemade chicken noodle soup right about now. You could ask her for the recipe and make it yourself but this is a lot easier, I promise.

This gift basket includes a woven reusable basket, chicken noodle, chicken chili, and potato corn chowder soup mix with a box of olive oil and sea salt water crackers.

Get it from Harry & David for $44.99.

These bowl huggers are machine washable for easy cleaning!

Promising review: "I use this for my soup bowls very often. My hubby and I often eat our dinner by the TV and I make a lot of homemade soups and stews that he loves. These little 'bowl Huggers' make it easy to sit with your soup on your lap, they keep the soup hotter, and they keep the bowl from burning your legs. Cozy!!" —badputter

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $14.99.

These containers are microwave- and freezer-safe!

Promising review: "I make a big pot of soup then freeze it in these containers. They do not leak and the food lasts a long time in the freezer. No freezer burn and stays fresh." —Kimberly

Get it from Put a Wick in It on Etsy for $11.99+ (available in 30 scents).

17. A crab spoon holder to sit on the edge of your pots and pans and fearlessly guard against some of cooking's most annoying perils. Spoon drippings? Not today! Bubbly spillover from a pot boiled over? Nah. Crabby, here, doubles as a steam releaser!,

Promising review: "Probably the coolest holder I have ever seen. Bought it for my wife and she loves it and thinks it's cute. I laugh when I look at it! Hangs on all of our pots and pans and stays cool. Easy to clean and looks awesome. Great addition to any kitchen. Works great and does exactly what it is intended to do!" —Logan E

Get it from Amazon for $15.80.

18. A stainless-steel soup ladle that's kind of like the Mercedes of ladles (German engineering, included). Made from a solid piece of stainless steel, this ergonomic scoop has an all-around pouring rim to prevent drippage, and a hooked handle so you don't have to go bobbing for ladles that slipped in the soup.


You don't have to worry about splurging on this ladle because Rosle offers a lifetime warranty.

Promising review: "I had this ladle on my wish list for a good six months before I finally pulled the trigger. My wallet hurt for a few days, but with the quality and design of this ladle, the pain of acquisition has been long forgotten. It makes a great tool for serving my soups, stews, and world-famous chili, and I don't have to be embarrassed when someone grabs the ladle to serve themselves. It is well-balanced and classy-looking. With its designed-in pouring lip, it would also make a great no-drip punchbowl ladle. Ante up! You won't be sorry." —S. H. Costanzo

Get it from Amazon for $32.99.

19. A set of ceramic soup crocks tough enough to withstand the broiler and get that perfectly toasted cheesy top layer your bistro-worthy French onion soup has been missing.,

These 18-ounce bowls are dishwasher-, oven-, and microwave-safe.

Promising review: "Can't say enough good things about these bowls. Made french onion soup and served in these bowls. Was able to melt the cheese right in these bowls. Able to use in the oven!!!!

Get a set of four from Amazon for $29.95 (available in four colors).

21. A sleek vacuum insulated thermos perfect for enjoying soup (and other hot or cold foods) on-the-go. It has a wide-mouth for easy filling and is perfectly-sized to fit in most lunch boxes!,

This sweat-proof and leak-proof food jar will keep food cold for 10 hours, and food hot for five hours. But note that it is hand-wash only.

Promising review: "I love this thing. I work 12-hour security shifts in a building that does not have a microwave. I tried literally three other thermal containers before this one, and was really upset when my soup was cold every time. This thing had my soup very pleasantly warm after five hours! To achieve this, I did pour boiling water into it first, dumped that out, then added my soup that had just come off of the stove. So I recommend those steps if you want the product working as you hope it will." —Sylvani

Get it from Amazon for $15.50 (available in 10 colors).

22. A The Office inspired soup snakes card because nothing is more romantic than you and Michael Scott teaming up to work through your bulleted list of reasons you and your S.O. belong together.

Great Jones

Great Jones was founded in 2018 by Sierra Tishgart and Maddy Moelis after they struggled to find the right tools for their own kitchen. The name "Great Jones" is in reference to Judith Jones, a cookbook author and editor who championed and published the work of Julia Child among other top chefs.

Promising review: "I never knew how badly I needed this pot until I met it. I’ve been doing a lot of cooking during the pandemic so my boyfriend’s mom generously surprised me with one of these pots. I can’t imagine my life without it now, I use it almost every day (and I look forward to it??). I bake breads in it, braise meats, cook stews, make soups, roast then bake... you name it. The convection is perfect and everything just cooks so well, no flavor lost or scorched. AND! It cleans better than any other kind of pot I’ve ever owned. Which my boyfriend appreciates :) It’s fabulous. I’d rate it 10/10 if I could." —Liz K.

Get it from Great Jones for $155 (available in seven colors).

24. A No Soup For You! enamel pin for Seinfeld fans to celebrate potentially the most iconic soup-related figure of all time — Yev Kassem — and his strict soup-ordering ways.

Get it from Your Tailors on Etsy for $18.40+ (available in three colors).

26. A variety pack of pre-made bone broth that'll have you enjoying all the nutritious, anti-inflammatory health benefits of bone broth without the time-intensive task of gathering all the bones and veggies needed to make it at-home.


Kettle & Fire bone broths are dairy-free, non-GMO, and gluten-free.

Promising review: "Thought I would give this a try since I cannot go and get chicken or beef bones. I must say the taste is as good as homemade. This product is pricey and you get four, so I only had to use one in a batch which I added my own vegetables and garlic to. A great substitution for homemade. I will buy again." —Lois T.

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $31.96.

27. An electric wok with an included divider for partaking in what is potentially the peak soup experience — hot pot. Want to cook and eat all the meat, veggies, and tofu you could ever want in one-to-two bubbling soup stocks of your choosing? Yes, yes you do.


This 1,500-watt stainless-steel wok includes a glass lid, cooking bowl with heat resistant handles and a 5-liter capacity, bowl divider, and a base with anti-skid silicone feet.

Promising review: "This Shabu Shabu Pot is very similar to the one we had at our table in a Shabu Shabu restaurant in Hawaii. Not sure how much we will use it but we had a wonderful dinner right after we purchased it. It is big enough for four easily. The separate compartments allow for two individual recipes that could easily serve two from each compartment. My husband is thrilled, as he loves all soups. This is a very healthy and fun way to eat your veggies, seafood, and proteins. The only care that must be taken is the power supply. We used a heavy-duty extension cord to reach the table. You must take care the cord is well out of the way of diners. We have since purchased some 'instant' soup bases that we will eventually try. However, it is easy to find many recipes to use in this device. It was a fun and more unusual dinner experience at home. Recommend for smaller adult get-togethers." —Andrew

Get it from Amazon for $69.99.

28. A soup sampler that combines the benefits of canned goods (long shelf life, easy to make) with the benefits of something you might make at home (organic, ethically sourced). If the apocalypse comes, you're going to have the best-tasting survival food around!

Five packets of different-flavored organic soup mixes
Patagonia Provisions

The five-pack sampler includes a pouch of black bean soup, tsampa soup, green lentil soup, red bean chili, and spicy red bean chili. The 10-pack sampler includes two packets of each flavor.

Promising review: "I bought this 'camping food' online for emergency rations in case I can't get out to a grocery store for a while. It's all good for one to five years, depending on the product. All other options I had seen were not organic and good for...25 years? Preservatives and American Comfort Food, oh my! But I held the thought someone had to be producing healthy, good tasting food that had a longer shelf life. Patagonia answered the call! I sampled the lentil soup and it was genuinely very good. Like I would cook, or order at a restaurant. Easy to prepare, Very happy with this food. It's the no-sacrifice survival food." —Estelle T

Get it from Patagonia Provisions for $29+ (available in two sizes).
