With so many choices available, holiday shopping has become so much more fun but also so much more stressful. It’s virtually impossible to find the time to explore it all, and well a little overwhelming too!
To save you a little time (and leg-work), I’ve compiled a list of my top 10 holiday gift recommendations.
Before I give you my list, maybe someone could please tell me what the fascination is with the Keurig Brewers? They’re everywhere this holiday season, and I just don’t get it. It just seems like a more expensive way to buy coffee… So if you have one, please leave a comment and enlighten me!
Here is a collection of some of my favorite kitchen tools and a few of the things that rank at the top of my wish list this year…
The 2011 Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide
1. Antique Bead Dinner Plates from Ballard Design
The timeless design and hand finished detail make them casual enough for everyday use but elegant enough for any special occasion. They’re dishwasher and microwave safe and safe to put into the oven for warming.
2. All-Clad Stainless Steel Measuring Cups and Spoons available from Williams-Sonoma
These gorgeous polished stainless steel measuring cups and spoons will last you a lifetime. They have the signature All-Clad riveted handles for secure grip with extra long handles to make reaching into tall jars and canisters a breeze.
3. Set of 4 Stoneware Mugs from Le Creuset
This seasonal 12 oz. mug set has the classic Le Creuset pearlized finish. In colors like red, green, white and black, they’re perfect for any holiday get together. They’re broiler, oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe and come with a 5-year warranty.
4. Natural Flower Placemats from Pier 1
These 16.5” placemats are woven from natural banana bark. Their big, bold blossom are the perfect accompaniment to a simple and rustic table, or an elegant one, like this one here.
This was THE best gift I received last year! It’s big enough and heavy-duty enough to handle the toughest job, but with its smaller blade and nested bowl I can make short work of the tiniest job. It features: 3 nested bowls for maximum versatility (14 cups, 11 cups, and 4 ½ cups), large and small chopping/mixing blades, a dough blade, a wide mouth feed tube, a retractable cord, a 20 year motor warranty, and a 3 year limited warranty. It’s available in die-cast, white, and black.
7. Vintage Wooden Serving Bowls from Pottery Barn
8. Giada De Laurentiis Stainless Steel 3-Piece Mixing Bowl Set available at Target
10. Tea for One by Bodum
The best part, is that ALL of these gifts are available for purchase online. So you can just hop over there and order right now while sitting in your cozy chair!
