Gift Guide: For the Foodie

 

  1. The Skinny Instant Pot Cookbook: $8
    • This cookbook is specifically for Instant Pot recipes, which is how I do 99.9% of my cooking these days. This book has TONS of great recipes, and anyone can make them, they’re not complicated whatsoever. This would be a great gift for a recent college grad, or newlyweds!
  2. Healthy Human Water Bottles: $19
    • These guys keep your water cold for 24 hours minimum, sometimes longer! They’re perfect for the gym, to keep at work, etc. I highly recommend these if you’re in the market for an insulated water bottle. Use “kalekouture” for 10% off!
  3. Healthy Human Tumbler Cruisers: $26
    • These are just like the water bottles, just a different style! I like the water bottles for cold liquds, and the tumblers for hot, but it’s totally a preference thing! I keep my coffee in my tumbler and it stays warm for a LONG time. Use “kalekouture” for 10% off!
  4. Stainless Steel Bowl Set w/ Lids: $20
    • I use these when I’m baking! I love how deep they are, as well as how easy they are to clean, but what I love most is that they have lids. Sometimes I have to chill dough/let things set up in the fridge, so I love being able to pop a lid on them when I do. They also double as great serving bowls if needed!
  5. Large Silicon Smoothie Straws: $5
    • This seems like a weird thing to add to a gift guide, but if you have a protein shake/smoothie lover in your life, these are a game changer. They’re thick, durable, dishwasher safe, and they last forever! Perfect stocking stuffer!
  6. Cookie Dough Scoop: $9
    • If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know this is my protein ball hack. This tool make it so easy to portion out protein balls, energy balls, no bake cookies, etc. I also use it when I’m trying to make sure my batter is even with muffins, pancake bites, etc. Such a versatile tool for a great price!
  7. Mini Food Processor: $19
    • This is something I didn’t really think I needed, until I had it. I HATE chopping, it’s just annoying to me, but I also didn’t want another huge kitchen appliance taking up tons of room in my cabinet. Especially because I don’t chop all that often. This is the best of both worlds; small and compact and it takes the work out of chopping!
  8. Scrub Daddy: $9
    • These bad boys are a hidden gem. I know it’s weird to buy someone scrubbing sponges for the holidays, but trust me when I say, every single person who uses a baking sheet EVER, needs these. They cut through grease, caked on ANYTHING, and smell amazing. They make cleaning such a breeze! They’re super durable too so they last much longer than a regular sponge.
  9. Frother: $14
    • I don’t even need to profess my love for this because I do it on my story on the daily. This makes at home coffee so much more boujee. If you add collagen to your coffee it dissolves it in seconds. Bottom line, if you there’s a coffee lover in your life, they need this.
  10. Yeti Mug: $24
    • To go with your frothed coffee, you need a boujee coffee mug, and this is it. I am known for having to microwave my coffee multiple times by the time I’m done with it and this completely fixes that issue. This keeps your coffee so freaking hot it’s almost too hot, but I love it. Again, this would make the perfect gift in addition to the frother, for the coffee lover in your life!
  11. Instant Pot: $79
    • I love, love, love my Instant Pot. I use it for so many things, but I mainly love it for it’s ability to make the most perfect hard boiled eggs you’ve ever had in your life in under 5 minutes. It’s worth the $79for that feature alone. In addition to that, anything you could do in your crock pot you could do in the Instant Pot in under 20 ish minutes. It’s magical and would make a great gift for just about anyone that doesn’t already have one!
  12. Mini Loaf Pan: $10
    • I love this little guy! I use it for banana bread, zucchini bread, pumpkin bread, etc. It makes the most perfect mini loafs when you don’t want to make one big loaf.
  13. Silicon Baking Mat Set: $16
    • These are the sole reason I have not had to buy new baking sheets in years. It doesn’t matter if you bake chicken, cookies, tenderloin, anything, it will not stick. They’re dishwasher safe so you can either wash them with your new scrub daddy sponges, or throw them in the dishwasher! This set of 3 is the cheapest I’ve seen them anywhere!
  14. Silicon Muffin Tins: $8
    • If someone you know makes muffins, pancake bites, cupcakes, anything, this is their new best friend. You don’t have to use any oil, oil spray, etc. I use these for pancake bites every single week and they’re an absolute lifesaver! I have two and I use them constantly. When you’re done with them, you can throw them in the dishwasher and you never have to clean them by hand! I will never use a metal pan again!
  15. Nutri Bullet: $59
    • This is on my Christmas list this year … (hi, Taylor!). But in all seriousness, when I asked for blender recommendations earlier this year, I got over 500 messages about how great this is. I make smoothies or shakes every single day, but having a huge blender take up counter space is inconvenient and creates a huge mess. I love that you can drink your shake out of the cup you blend it in and all of the reviews for this speak for themselves. This is on sale for such a great price and would make an amazing gift for anyone on your list!
  16. Air Fyer: $49
    • This air fryer is Taylor’s favorite appliance in our kitchen! We mainly use this for leftover roasted veggies (it reheats things but makes them really crispy at the same time), and sometimes, leftover pizza. We also use it for air fried chicken tenders which is a favorite in our house. The best way I can describe it is it’s like a toaster oven, but better! This is the cheapest I’ve seen an air fryer so if you’re in the market, jump on this!
  17. Kitchen Aid Mixer: $259
    • My mom got me this exact mixer for my college graduation and I’m 100% sure she paid double this price, or more. It’s a splurge item per say, but it’s well worth the money. I’ve had mine for 4 years now and it’s not going anywhere any time soon. If you have newlyweds in your life, or a new homeowner, this is the best gift. I don’t know any girl with a kitchen who doesn’t want this! I guarantee this won’t be this price after black friday, so jump on this one too!
  18. Skinny Taste: One and Done: $19
    • This is the Skinny Taste version of the Instant Pot cookbook, but what this has that the other does not, are recipes for the crock pot, as well as the air fryer! So it’s kind of a 3 in 1 which I really like! This would also make a great college grad/newlywed gift.
  19. Crux Copper Nonstick Bake ware: $27
    • I ordered this bake ware for myself because of two things: the copper is beautiful, as well as the price is seriously crazy. This whole set is cheaper than buying two of these pieces individually! Well, well worth the price in my opinion. This also has everything you need as far as baking is concerned!
  20. Stasher Bag: $9
    • These are on my wish list this year! We go through way too many plastic bags and I think these are worth the investment. I take my lunch every single day so I feel like these would be so useful. These are dishwasher safe and super durable from what I’ve heard. These would make a great stocking stuffer!
