With December fast approaching it is time that many of us turned our thoughts to Christmas gifts and started to get an idea of what we are looking to buy our loved ones. As part of our Christmas gift focus, today we are going to take a look at some of the gifts which you can look at getting if your loved one likes nothing more than spending their time in the kitchen. This is an area with many, many gift ideas and we have selected our top 5 ideas for Christmas 2018.
Counter space can often be a challenge in many kitchens and this means that a big blender or mixer will have to stay in a cupboard until the time comes to use it. In order to make life easier in the kitchen, why not buy one of these fantastic mini mixers which has the power and the capacity of the larger ones, yet takes up 90% less space. Having the mixer on your countertop makes it much handier to use and this is just one of the many benefits of this kind of gift.
A French press is a coffee maker which any kitchen-lover will adore. With these beautiful pieces you can brew up your very own coffee, straight from the bean, in the comfort of your own home. When you start to use a French press coffee maker, you won’t want to go back to drinking anything else as the taste from making it in this way is completely different, and far better, than any instant coffee in the world. Aside from the taste, the smell of fresh coffee will fill your home each time you use the press.
Oil is pretty trendy these days and we have graduated from using basic love or vegetable oil to infusing them with a range of different flavors. Why not give your loved one an oil infuser then so that they can get creative with their own oils and make a flavor which they want to create. These bottles will set you back around $20 and they have a separate space at the bottom where you can add the ingredients to give your oil flavor.
Steaming is the healthiest way of eating fish and veg and given that so many people are more health conscious now than they used to be, this is a great gift for a healthy cook. The steamers are best bought in glass for best results and for their durability when compared to any others. Having a steamer like this means that people can steam in the kitchen without any fuss, and they can keep up their health kick.
Pestle and Mortar
The pestle and mortar is a real kitchen staple that adds a showpiece to the kitchen on the whole. In practice, the stone bowl and the pestle can be used to blend herbs and spices, grind peppercorn and salt rocks or even to make a nice salsa. If you are looking for a show stopping gift, this is the one which you should buy.
