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!).

amazon.com, amazon.com

I invested in one of these and I'm so glad I did — I use it to make lattes at home and have saved a lot of dollars without having to run out to Starbucks every morning (just...once a week or so instead hehe).

Promising review: "OMG, this milk frother makes my homemade latte taste like it was made by a barista. It was perfect. So perfect that I bought a second one for my brother who loves coffee to use. I've already recommended it to some coworkers. It has changed my coffee-drinking life. This comes highly recommended." —Michelle Pirestani

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 17 colors).

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

Promising review: "This is a great item for lightly spraying salads, roasting vegetables, or adding some oil to a prepared plate of pasta. Avoids using more oil than necessary so that’s a savings right there. I also use it to put a light coating of oil on all my cast-iron cookware to prevent rust. Best of all, it looks great on the dinner table. Lots of uses which really makes it an asset in the kitchen. It seems that it should last a while so I think it is worth the few bucks spent." —Clancy

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

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.

Amazon

They can also use this to safely cut bagels and slices of meats that they're tired of trying to cut through the middle of!

Promising review: "This item is the best kitchen helper. First time using it I was apprehensive about it really working, but it works like a charm. Put my tomatoes in first literally slicing them immediately, then my green olives...perfect. I know I will be making more salads and healthy veggie trays with this food cutter." —Cynthia

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

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

The thermometer and sheath
Amazon

Promising review: "As a working chef for over 30 years, I've gone through dozens of thermometers, and this one stands out. I actually purchased this by accident while buying several thermometers to try with the intent of buying a dozen for my crew. I was looking for thermometers that can be field-calibrated and as far as I can tell, this one can't. But I intend to buy more of these because they are accurate, easy to read, and just more pleasant to use. They are tough, and I love the ring on the end; I keep this one hanging on a hook near our ranges so I don't have to hunt it down. It does not ride easily in my chef's coat, but that is due to the longer probe. Which I LOVE. In two weeks I have used this one thermometer over 130 times, all with pleasure." —Cetaceous Dave

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

Nature Above is a small business based in Brooklyn, New York.

Amazon

Promising review: "This is one of my favorite things I have purchased for our tiny apartment! It's a pretty good size cutting board and I can see it fitting over most sinks. I LOVE the bowl inside that can let wet ingredients drain liquid directly into the sink. It's seriously SO nice to have this when you're limited on counter space!" —Atara

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Our Place, Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

ShabbyhappyDecoupage / Etsy

You can also go for a holiday themed set!

Promising review: "These shakers are so fabulous in our new restaurant!!! They go perfectly with the decor because they are smaller than a regular shaker but not tiny! They are feminine and petite which is great for our French bistro. Working with Poppy was great!!! She answers questions, finished my order of 20 sets very quickly and kept an eye on shipping and informed me of any delays. She is great to work with, does a beautiful job on the product and I hope I can purchase from her again soon!!!" —Laura English

Get them from ShabbyhappyDecoupage on Etsy for $48.86 (available in 15 colors).

Sur la Table

15. 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.

Amazon

Promising review: "I expected to be happy, but I'm thrilled! Each mat is pliable and fits the entire width of my standard oven. When the mat is against the back wall, it extends up to but not over the front lip of the floor. On first use, pizza cheese and sauce dripped onto the front edge of the mat and onto that uncovered lip. The baked-on cheese and sauce slid right off the mat! Effortlessly! After I cleaned up the lip, I layered a second mat to cover the lip. These mats are so great that I almost want food to drip on them so I can show off how wonderful they are." —Artset Outset

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get a pack of three from Amazon for $12.99.

17. How To Bake, a cookbook from The Great British Baking Show's Paul Hollywood — it's filled with tips and tricks that'll ensure your loved one receives one of his legendary handshakes.

The cover of the book
Bloomsbury Publishing

Reviewers agree that the instructions are clear, photos with *each* recipe are super helpful, and the step-by-step instructions helped them get amazing results on their first try.

Since he's British, the book uses metric measurements (and weighing ingredients is really better for precise baking!) so you might also want to get a handy kitchen scale if you don't have one. You can get a top-rated one from Amazon for $11.99.

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $21.99 or Bookshop for $36.80 (to support local bookstores).

18. 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.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "I didn't want to spend a lot of money in case it turned out that we didn't like it. Well, we love it. We consume a fresh loaf every three days and it only takes me 10 minutes to measure the ingredients, add them to the pot and set it to go. Much faster. For reference, I have only made the basic 1.5-lb loaf set to light crust. I follow the instructions exactly except I substitute the water with warm milk. I made this modification after the first couple of loaves. They were good but just a little dry for our liking. Using warm milk, instead of water, turns out a softer loaf. I'm sure I will try other recipes down the road but for now, this is what I needed it for and it works wonderfully." —Amazon Customer

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $84.99.

19. 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.

oxo / Via instagram.com

I have a bunch of Pop containers and I'll never go back to anything else. They create such a nice seal at the top, they're oddly fun to open and close, and they look so clean even when filled to the top.

Promising review: "I've been using one of these for popcorn storage for years now and recently have bought several sets in different sizes to organize my pantry and countertops. I love how closely together they fit so that I can use every bit of space. The lids fit tightly and are interchangeable between units of the same size. The large ones come with scoops that snap onto the underside of the lid. I've got these in four sizes and I love them all!" —Marilyn WK

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "After multiple containers for my brown sugar and continuously throwing my brown sugar away due to giant hard lumps, I began to wonder why our brown sugar never lumped as a child. That's when I remembered a weird brown bear in our sugar, After a quick Google search I found this! I soaked it in water for 30 minutes and then added to my lumpy brown sugar...two days later there is not a single lump in my sugar! Yay!" —Sneezeloaf

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $4.75 (available in three styles).

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

BuzzFeed / Hannah Loewentheil

BuzzFeed Writer Hannah Loewentheil is a biiiiiig fan of this delicious sauce:

"There's one ingredient that makes even my most average home cooking taste amazing, and it's this TRUFF truffle-infused hot sauce. I first heard about TRUFF on a list of Oprah's favorite things, and I knew she would never lead me astray. So I quickly realized I needed TRUFF in my own kitchen.

There are three kids of TRUFF hot sauces: the classic black truffle sauce, a 'hotter' sauce, and the crown jewel, the creme de la creme, a white truffle hot sauce. Look, the white truffle-infused hot sauce quite literally tastes like heaven, but IMO, the classic black truffle hot sauce is the most versatile and a staple in my kitchen. And while at first $20+ seemed like an absurd price to pay for hot sauce, this stuff is worth the price tag. I mean...truffles. And here's the thing: I've tried plenty of truffle-infused hot sauces, olive oils, and what-nots in the past, but they often taste overpowering or low-quality. TRUFF hot sauces are the perfect balance of decadent truffle, heat, spice, and a tiny bit of sweetness. Now I'm completely and most likely irrevocably hooked to this liquid gold. I slather it on pretty much everything savory from eggs and tacos to sandwiches and fried rice. If you're looking for a way to add flavor to your home cooking or turn basic meals into pure extravagance, you should probably invest in a bottle of TRUFF."

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get Truff from Amazon: the black truffle hot sauce for $17.98, the "hotter" sauce for $17.98, and the white truffle hot sauce for $34.99.

24. 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.

Amazon

You can even pop these in the washing machine for a thorough cleaning.

Promising review: "After my husband sliced his finger on our mandolin I decided to check out these gloves. We are both very impressed with how well they work. The company who sells these is also wonderful — they sent a follow-up email to ensure that we liked the gloves and would have replaced or refunded our money if we weren't happy. The only thing I was concerned about when I ordered the gloves was if I was buying the right size. My husband and I have different hand sizes, but the medium is working well for both of us. And knowing that they would send a different size free of charge was wonderful. Now we don't have to worry about slicing off our fingers!" —That Author Guy's Wife

amazon.com, Emma Lord / BuzzFeed

Promising review: "I purchased these for a friend's birthday present (he is a sushi waiter) and these are flippin' AMAZING.

I've had the pleasure of trying this olive oil and it really is worth the money! Yes, the bottle is pretty and looks lovely on the counter, but the taste is also fantastic!

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: "This was a gift for my musician/chef fiancé and he absolutely loved them! We have not used them yet, but they look quite durable and also the design is great. I like that there are holes at the top of each one, so they can be hung on the wall if we choose to do so. Functional art! He left them out when we had friends over and we had quite a few compliments and people asking where I found them. Thank you so much!" —Ellen

This mix really has done it for us. We've made pancakes, waffles and muffins with the mix and they've all come out great. The fact that we can trust the ingredients because they're from Partake is a big bonus." —BMG

Get it from Partake Foods for $45.99.

38. A reversible silicone baking mat to keep their baking sheets nice 'n' clean. Let's be honest, no one enjoys scraping pans for an hour after making dinner.

The mat also features guidelines for how far apart to space your cookies so they won't melt into a lumpy mess (which has happened to me on multiple occasions).

Promising review: "Love this mat! The cookie layout is super helpful. The mat is easy to clean with a little soap and water. I use these mats for all things oven related and have seriously cut down on parchment and foil costs. We own two already and have two more on order." —Erin

Walmart

Promising review: "I absolutely love these knives, sadly as old as I am I can't always remember which knives are used for what job.

41. Nonstick donut pans they'll be so glad they own come the middle of summer when they irrationally find themselves craving an apple cider donut.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "Bought donut pans for baking vegan donuts!! Amazon delivered them, gave them a quick wash, and got our first two dozen baked the same night! We baked a lemon with a lemon zest glaze and a pumpkin spice with cinnamon maple glaze! The pans are of great quality, no sticking, even baking and easy clean up! Perfect! Can’t wait to try some more recipes! So much fun!!" —J

42. 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.

Amazon, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

I have one of these and have surprised myself by actually using it over the years. Anytime my husband or I try making something new and it comes out good we write it down and add it to the box! This recipe tin comes 24 recipe cards and 12 recipe dividers. Also it's just super cute.

Promising review: "I ordered this for myself and absolutely love it, it’s even prettier in person! Larger than I expected too, It’s perfect! I’m going to order my mom one for her birthday." —MaddMom09

Promising review: "I bought one of these some time ago (~2011? possibly earlier?) and it's held up beautifully over time. It's not stained at all despite being fed a mostly tomato-sauce based pasta diet and tossed into the dishwasher for cleaning. There's a few scratches here and there on the corners, but overall it's in excellent shape." —J Cook

Promising review: "I’ve had my set awhile and they’ve held up just fine with hand washing, and honestly they’ve probably ended up in the dishwasher a few times too. They are so pretty!

46. Stainless-steel mixing bowls that'll nest nicely inside one another so they won't have to worry about where the heck you're going to store six bowls in their tiny (but efficient!) kitchen.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "These bowls are AWESOME! Whether I'm mixing cake batter or cookie dough, putting together pasta salad or mixing nuts before baking them for hostess gifts this past holiday season, these bowls were phenomenal. You can really get in there and stir up the contents whether you're using a hand mixer or a spatula. These were a great buy and I am delighted with them. I honestly use them every other day and they are great to store the finished product in until you're ready to pretty it up for serving. Can't say enough good things about this set of bowls." —Ema Nnep

47. An electric indoor grill, so they can make mouthwatering burgers all year long whether it's 20 or 90 degrees outside.

Amazon, amazon.com

Using this lil' grill is so simple a monkey could probably do it. Throw your meat on, close the top, and BOOM — dinner is served. It even has a viewing window so you can make sure your food isn't burning.

Promising review: "Seriously, I love this grill. Recently moved into the city and can't use my grill so thought I'd give this a try. Man, it's amazing how well this works considering what it is and what it costs. I really can't see why anyone would have ANYTHING negative to say about it. The first two meals I cooked on it looked fantastic and tasted even better. Seriously, if you've been on the fence about this grill, get off and just buy it. You won't be disappointed." —AdventureChuck

49. An adjustable rolling pin that'll help them roll any dough to a specific width. I see a lot of "thank you" pizza, pies, and cookies in your future ;).

Amazon

Promising review: "OMG! I have been looking for this my whole life! I make sugar cookies and I like them pretty thick and it is hard to roll them out evenly. This is PERFECT...and I mean PERFECT!! I baked three batches of cut out sugar cookies in less than an hour an a half!!! No joke! I was going to buy one of those cookies things with the side bars but they are over $50. This works amazingly well and the price is perfect. Great product!!!" —L. Stanley

50. Reusable baking cups so they can say "see ya'!" to getting frustrated while attempting to peel the paper off your freshly baked muffins and cupcakes.

Amazon

And! It's way less wasteful and more environmentally friendly to reuse those colorful cups instead of paper ones!

Promising review: "I have always wanted to buy silicone cups because I love to bake (but hate foil and paper cups), so I'm glad I finally got around to it. These are perfect. They are fun and colorful, and despite feeling thin, they are very durable and hold up to oven temperatures no problem. I didn't have to adjust baking times, or grease the cups. My muffins came out really easily with minimal residue. A little tedious to clean because the crumbs get caught in the grooves, but not a huge deal. I just flipped them inside out, and scrubbed with hot water and soap. I would definitely recommend these for any baker!" —Paula

51. A batter dispenser, that'll let them create perfectly round, fluffy pancakes that honestly could be featured on the cover of Food Network magazine.

Amazon

Promising review: "Finally a kitchen utensil that saves time, mess, and frustration! I ordered this because my 10-year-old daughter loves to make pancakes but she also leaves an incredible mess. She also loves to make cupcakes and that's even a double mess. Upon receiving the batter dispenser, my daughter took it out of the package and started making pancakes right away without my instructions. She loved the ease to make the pancakes in the container and then one click on the pan with no mess." —Jim Hudson

52. Shredder claws so they won't have to suffer from burnt fingertips while trying to finally get a smidge closer to flawlessly replicating their grandma's famous pulled pork recipe.

Promising review: "Works well for shredding larger portions of meat, like pork. Plastic appears to be of higher quality. Sufficient room in the opening for most finger and hand sizes. The pointed tips shouldn't cause injury unless you're careless. I'd highly recommend the use of quality protective gloves; you're not only dealing with the mess of shredding itself but also, most likely, some elevated temperature food." —Legardi11

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $11.04 (available in four colors).

Amazon

Promising review: "These are SO cute and so colorful and bright, they make me happy. I have no clue what people are talking about being not dishwasher-safe... I'm WAY too lazy to hand wash these things so I threw them in the dishwasher and they came out just fine. Clean with no water spots. They're so sturdy and so cute and can withstand super high or low temperatures." —Bree

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get them from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in four styles).

54. And a culinary blow torch that'll make you the coolest gift giver EVER — mark my words.

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: "This mini torch is easy to use with an adjustable flame. It's not too fancy shmancy, but it's not expensive either. It does everything I need it to do including lighting candles that have burned too far down to reach with a match. (although I know that's not its intent at all) Unfortunately it doesn't arrive with butane; but once you fill it, it lasts a pretty long time!" —Vero

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $20.99.
