Awesome holiday gift ideas for the cooks in your life who you think have everything. (This is not a sponsored post — I’m featuring these brands because I love these items!)Now that you have my 2016 guide of 20 Cool Gifts For Foodies & Cooks For Under $20, I’m sharing my 2016 guide guide “for the cook who has everything.” At least, the cook who you think has everything. These picks vary is price, and are super unique and fun.
Just like every other year, I only include products in my gift guides, that I either have and love, or want and love.
From a cool, new kitchen tool called a Smood and beautiful food photograph to hang on the wall, to a delightful monthly spice delivery service and a terracotta pizza oven — there’s here something for every cook!
Let’s check it out . . .
1. Fresh Food Prints — $25 to $100, depending on the size
A stunning, highly creative photograph of food is an incredibly unique gift to give a cook, or anyone who appreciates the beauty of food. These works of art are all printed quickly to order using archival materials. All of the photographs are taken by Christina Peters, a renowned commercial food photographer.2. Quarterly Spice Kits from Raw Spice Bar — $26/quarterly | $88/year
A really fun and delicious gift that keeps on giving! Raw Spice Bar will deliver freshly ground and expertly toasted flavors, with globally inspired recipes, every 3 months.
4. Hot and Cold Handheld Bowls (2) from UncommonGoods — $60
How handsome is this soapstone bowl set!? They can keep ice cream cold while protecting hands from freezer burn. Or, you can bake the soapstone in the oven to keep hot items warm — while your hands stay cool on the wood. Brilliant! 5. Smood from Dreamfarm — $24.95
This is hands down the best potato masher/smasher I’ve ever tried. I love it. And it looks so cool! 6. Ravioli Making Gift Box from The Grommet — $135
Beautiful and functional, this ravioli rolling pin is handmade in the U.S. from sustainable hardwood. The box also includes a ravioli cutter, semolina flour, and olive oil to get started making perfect ravioli. So much fun!
7. 90th Anniversary Collector’s Set from Le Creuset — $75
To celebrate the joy Le Creuset cookware has brought people around the world for the last nine decades, they’ve introduced this fantastic collector’s set of five Le Creuset miniatures, each representing a key part of Le Creuset history.
8. Olivewood Salt Keeper from Williams-Sanomoa — $49.95 (+$9.50 to personalize)
Handcrafted, beautiful and practical, this olivewood box keeps up to 8-ounces of cooking salt within close reach. It has a swiveling magnetic lid for easy one-handed access and each box has its own unique grain pattern.
9. TVS Galatek Non-Stick 11-Inch Wok from Fab — $54
TVS designer Angelo Di Porto believes cookware should be a work of art, “nurturing the soul as you prepare to nurture the body.” And this wok exemplifies that with its elegant curves that make it perfect for stir frying, deep frying, or anything that requires an intense burst of heat. So pretty!
10. Copper River Knife from UncommonGoods — $65
This gorgeous, traditional knife is hand-froged and made for the modern kitchen. Inspired by the Ulu, an all-purpose knife, it’s a perfect chopping tool — the versatile blade is valued for its utility and ease of use.
11. Staub Steam Grill from Sur La Table (10½-inch) — $119.96
If I had the Staub Steam Grill (hint, hint), it would for sure be my go-to pan for quick, healthy meals. The tight fitting lid locks in flavor and moisture and prevents excessive smoking, which can be a problem with indoor grilling. My smoke alarm goes off far too often. 😉
12. Wood-Fired Oven With Stone Baking Board from Uuni — $229
This is a spectacular, extravagant gift for someone who loves wood-fired pizzas, and would love having this cool looking oven in their backyard! It’s heats up to 932°F which enables you to cook things extremely quickly — you can make a pizza in just 60 seconds! And it’s not just for pizza; you can cook flatbreads, fish, vegetables, steaks or really anything with short cooking times. (This is a very fancy, more versatile version of no. 3 on this list — both are great!) Please note that the prices for all of the above items are current as of December 2, 2016, and will likely change over time.
