Holiday Gift Guide #3--Rockin' Gifts or people who love to cook...

This gift guide is all about folks who love cookin' up something good to eat in the kitchen.  Whether they are just learning to make a basic pasta dish, or are perfecting their bordelaise sauce..these kitchen gadgets will come in handy.  They are functional, stylish, and unique gifts for the chef on your list....

Every amateur chef has a set of wooden spoons.  But they probably don't have drumstick shaped ones!!  And you can never have too many spoons.  These beechwood spoons will come in handy for mixing and for rockin'.  if they are a drummer AND a chef--well, then it is the perfect gift!

And if you are a singer AND a chef, then these Sing Along Tongs will be the perfect gift.  Even if you can't sing, but you love to sing in the kitchen, these tongs will come in handy.  You can use them for grabbing food, grilling, turning steaks, and for salad tongs.  What a great design!!  made of silicone, they are dishwasher safe..

And guitar players who are chefs  may enjoy this Shredder--a guitar shaped cheese grater!!  This small sized shredder is perfect for shredding cheese onto a salad, shaving some parmesan onto your pasta, garlic or onion into your sauce, or nutmeg onto your hot cocoa.  And it looks really cool hanging on a wall in the kitchen...

And they may already have a whisk, but do they have a bad ass Whip It whisk?  Having several whisks available will make their life easier.  This one is silicone, so it won't scratch your ceramic or glass bowls, either.  Whip those eggs--whip 'em good!!

They may not have a kitchen timer.  These are really handy to have when you are making soft boiled eggs, sauces, desserts and such.  Especially if you are doing two things at once, and may forget to count the minutes on your first dish.  These cute and functional kitchen timers make great lil' gifts.  We have a hamburger timer or a owlet timer in three fun colors.

It is very important for chefs to have sharp knives at all times.  Dull knives will mangle the produce and can land the person using the knife to the emergency room.  No rock and roll fun at all!!  To keep their knives super sharp, they should have a knife sharpener.  This carbon steel "Sharp Act" sharpener looks like a lady in the box, ready to be sawed in half for a magic trick.  It sharpens knives easily and with style.  Looks cool sitting out on the counter, ready to use when you needed.

Measurements are very important when following a recipe, especially when baking.  Some chefs may already have measuring cups, but do they have nesting Russian Doll measuring cups?  These are great because they contain the traditional 1, 1/2, 1/4. 1/8 measurements, but ALSO contain 2/3, 1/3 and 3/4 cup measurements as well.  No more fumbling around trying to find the one you need--they're all right here.  And they look cute enough to keep out on the counter.  Dishwasher safe.  In a cheery red for the holidays!

And if baking is their thing, these handy and well designed baking tools will find a happy home in their kitchen.  The silicone baking spatula is shaped like a guitar!  It definitely helps to get every last drop of delicious batter out of a bowl.  And if they like making cakes, why not make a mustache shaped cake!!  Super fun for any occassion!  This silicone mold also works for meatloaf, cornbread, ice sculptures, etc.  And if they bake killer cookies, they would appreciate awesome new cookie cutters.  We have the leg lamp cookie cutter from "A Christmas Story" , Munchstache cookie cutter shaped like mustaches-(bet they don't already have those) and GingerDead men--an edgier take on the traditional gingerbread man.  And the Flipper--a guitar shaped spatula, will help those cookies slide off the pan.  Made of silicone, it is available in red or black.

And if you want to keep the flour off of your clothes when you are baking, and still look cute--these aprons are the way to go.  With rockin' fabrics, they will make any stylish chef happy.  They even have a pocket!  Matching oven mitts and kitchen towels are also available so they can have a matching set.  Such a nice gift for a hostess as well!!  Oven mitts are extra long and potholders have a pocket in them!  You can never have too many kitchen towels.  They also double as placemats.
