Cooking Lovers Gift Guide
For years I had no idea what i was missing! I love to buy these little chickens that are frozen, they are a great price and the perfect size for my family.
When we cook them from frozen it is a very long process until we were gifted this pressure cooker.
In all honesty, I thought it could not be right. Cook my chicken in 1 hour ya right, it takes about 3 hours if not more to cook it in the oven for it to still be moist.
I about fell over the first tie when my chicken cooked perfectly i one hour and juicy as all could be. And I did it again, and again, and again! Perfect every time. This is a game changer for busy moms and last minute meals!
Pressure cookers range from $100-$300 dollars for a standard home model.
I do not have one yet but this KitchenAid Mixer has been on my radar for far too long. This is truly every chef, baker, and cooking lovers’ ideal gift!
I vote this the number one of our gift ideas for cooking lovers!
One day one of these will be the star of my kitchen.
Right now every time my family asks me to bake bread I say “I would totally bake bread… if only I had a KitchenAid Mixer!” Hahaha.
This mixer is priced at $499 and has been discontinued after sold out. On average these sell for about $699 depending on how big you go. (psst Josh I want a really big mixer haha).
KitchenAid hand Mixer
I do however have this beauty! The KitchenAid Hand Mixer.
I can be hard on mixers especially when I’m baking cookies and this little dude keeps up with the toughest jobs, just not quite enough for that bread though Josh, just saying!
This mixer goes beautifully with my kitchen decor like my flip, stir, mix project! This is a perfect choice from our top gift ideas for cooking lovers.
This mixer goes on sale for approximately $50 regular $80.
Rolling Kitchen Island
This rolling kitchen island is made by the ever so awe-inspiring Antique Farm House. I love all their stuff and they always have tons of amazing new things.
They also have a Mother’s Day Box deal for $50. This surprise box is perfectly curated for moms!
When choosing from gift ideas for cooking lovers every cooking lover is seeking the right amount of space to roll out some dough and store all their favourite items!

Crafty Gift Ideas for Cooking Lovers
Are you crafty? Then here are a few of my favourite kitchen craft projects for your gift ideas for cooking lovers!
Flip, Stir, Whisk Mason Jar Set
Our flip, stir, whisk mason jar set is completely customizable and so easy to make for your cooking lover! All you need are a few jars, a couple of pieces of wood, some spray paint and tada!
I also used this tutorial to make canisters for my kitchen too! Now I have my flour, sugar, oats and cocoa right at my fingertips!
Total cost of this project is under $20 depending what you have on hand if you are buying 3-4 colours of spray paint your price will go up. ($6-10 a can).
Cheese Grater Up-cycle
I already told you I’m hard on mixers but I’m even harder on cheese graters. I should contact Guinness World Records ’cause I’m sure I hold the title for breaking the most cheese graters, just saying!
But low and behold I found a use for at least one in my home! I gave it a bit of paint and distressed it to turn it into this vintage-looking vase-towel holder perfect for our kitchen!
Total cost for this project is minimal depending what you have on hand ($0-$15). My cost was zero besides the price of replacing another cheese grater haha.
Mason Jar Measuring Set
Last year I shared this with my audience and Josh ordered me a set, woohoo! I really love this set and think it goes great with my teal kitchen and all my minty decor.
You can grab yours on amazon I would share a link but it changes quite often. My set is made by Comfify. If you type in mason jar measuring set it will pop up!
This mason jar measuring set is approximately $22.00.
