Kitchen Essentials Holiday Gift Guide

I've rounded up my favorite practical kitchen items on this year's Kitchen Essentials Holiday Gift Guide

So many of you have written me asking about the kitchen equipment I use and recommend. I figured now was the perfect time to put together a list of some of my favorite things. Many of the items shown here are things that I own and use all the time – and a few of them are totally on my wishlist. (hint hint, Jack).

Whether it’s time to ask your relatives for that Vitamix or give your newlywed daughter a really amazing (matching!) set of pots and pans, hopefully I’ve offered a few ideas. To make it easy, everything here is from Macy’s. 

You can click directly on the images in this post to view each product. And if you’re looking for a few more options, check out their cookware buying guide.

  1. Great list. All the items are really valuable and essential for kitchen.

    Perfect timing! I’m sorting through my Macy’s wedding registry, which is basically all kitchen stuff. 😀

    All these products are great. I have a good amount of them but always keeping an eye out for something new. I can never have enough le creuset.

  4. I wish I could gift everyone on my list some Le Creuset! I’m really in love with the new Burgundy line over at Sur La Table. I put it on my kitchen gift guide!
