57 Gifts For Anyone Who Loves Cooking

Here's to hoping they'll whip you up a special meal to thank you for getting them the perfect present.

Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are tricky and can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. Shop early and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 25th!

1. A milk frother to pack a powerful, spinning punch despite looking rather delicate. It'll help transform their at-home coffee into one worthy of an actual spot on their 'gram (seriously, a fleeting IG story simply won't do it justice!).

2. An oil mister that'll help them perfectly spray all of their ingredients without getting their hands covered in grease.

3. A grape, strawberry, and tomato cutter so they can flawlessly slice 'em in half the way chefs do on all of those fancy cooking shows.

4. An instant-read digital thermometer, to ensure they'll never have to guess "is my steak cooked?" again. They can grill with confidence!

5. A cutting board and strainer combo, because who wouldn't appreciate a 2-in-1 item that'll save 'em room in their kitchen?

6. A gift assortment of Popbar hot chocolate sticks to upgrade their fave winter beverage from a standard powder hot chocolate mix to one you'd see the main character sipping on under twinkle lights in a Hallmark movie.

7. Everything Bagel Seasoning Blend they'll want to sprinkle on everything — and they should because it's really freakin' delicious.

8. An Always Pan, complete with a nonstick surface, a vented top, a mesh basket for steaming, and a high-quality spoon that hooks onto the handle — they'll basically only ever want to use this pan. My apologies to their current ones.

9. A Le Creuset cast-iron pan for the serious chef who has been dying to get the *perfect* crust on their steak but hasn't had the right pan to really GET there.

10. A Blue Apron gift card, so they can try their hand at all kinds of new recipes without having to shop around for all the ingredients.

11. A pack of oven liners to protect the bottom of their oven from any overflow/oozing and let them continue on pretending they're competing on The Great British Baking Show worry-free.

12. Adorable cat measuring spoons that'll make them want to stop opening gifts and whip up a fresh batch of cookies right ~meow~.

13. A comfortable and cute cross-back apron they can count on to protect their clothes from *~the elements~* also known as erratic oil splashes.

14. An AeroGarden for their countertop so they can grow their own herbs to take their recipes to the next level — whether they have a green thumb or not.

15. A "Yes Chef" hat they'll want to wear *all* the time after watching The Bear. Just know you may need to start replying "that's fire, Chef" whenever they ask you to taste test something at home.

16. A set of three fermentation lids they can use with an array of jars to bring some scientific fun into their next cooking sesh. They'll be making your own pickles and kimchi in no time at all!

17. A bread-making machine that'll fill their home with the aroma of freshly baked bread — is there any better smell than that on a cold, wintry day? I think not.

18. A set of Oxo Pop containers can match all of their appliances and keep their pantry so neat and orderly Marie Kondo would burst into tears of joy upon seeing it.

19. Oven mitts they'll love ~beary~ much — especially because they're actually heat-resistant.

20. A brown sugar bear that is as cute as it is functional and'll keep their sugar from getting hard as a rock over time. When the mood strikes to make something delicious (brown sugar ribs, anyone???) they won't have to head out to the store for an extra ingredient.

21. A bottle of Truff truffle-infused hot sauce they'll probably want to start planning their meals around — it's THAT good.

22. Cut-resistant gloves — a must-have for anyone who isn't super confident in their knife skills and would like to keep all of their digits.

23. A subscription to Piquant Post that'll provide any chef with a *whole new world* of flavor to sprinkle into their already-delicious recipes.

24. A set of LED light saber chopsticks they'll probably misplace in their utensil drawer but then have the opportunity to exclaim "THESE are the ones I've been looking for!" once they finally find them.

25. Molly Baz's book, Cook This Book, that'll inspire them to try out a whole slew of new recipes (and hopefully share 'em with you).

31. A peach cobbler kit complete with everything they'll need (minus some milk and butter) to make a yummy dessert — it's even complete with actual, delicious Georgia peaches that surely won't disappoint.

32. A rapid egg cooker that'll make their breakfast faster than they can say, "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?".

33. Pig of the Month, which will be the subscription box of any carnivore's dreams and provide you with deliveries of mouthwatering BBQ selections and sides.

34. A cast-iron grill press to help them create restaurant-worthy paninis and burgers they'll salivate over every time.

37. A floral tin recipe box from Rifle Paper Co. to help you *try* and help your not-so-confident chef buddy break the habit of calling their mom to ask "how long do I bake the cookies for?" since they'll be able to pull the instructions out as needed.
