Let’s get cooking helping you find beautiful gifts for the chef. I’ve rounded up things I would love for Santa to leave me under the tree.

An Apron – Last January my besties and I traveled to Arkansas to Euna Mae’s Kitchen Store.  Be sure to check out her website. She stocks her store with the loveliest bowls, kitchenware, care packages, and linens. We bought pretty much one of everything while we were in town. I love this year’s Christmas apron. Every southern gal needs an apron.  Her red cotton holiday apron would be lovely with a monogram.

For the tea and coffee drinker.  I love the sound tea kettles make when they sing!  Sometimes you just want a really good cup of tea that a Keurig just can’t make. This white tea kettle from World Market will go with anyone’s color scheme.  If she loves teas and Hallmark Christmas movies, she will flip over their branded Christmas Tea.  And I adore these good vibes mugs. I have the “Living my Best Life” mug and it’s perfect. Can you imagine her putting these all out on a tray and serving cocoa or tea?

Okay, this is my favorite. Gift her with a custom tea towel with a vintage recipe. Maybe it’s her Grandmama’s Pecan Tassies or your Mother’s Chocolate Cake – whatever her favorite is, this will be a lifetime treasure. You can do a printed version in her original handwriting or they will screen print it. I am addicted to cast iron. I fact, be sure to join me this Friday for a virtual castiron cooking class I will be teaching for Jabo’s Ace Hardware. Read about it here. This gorgeous white Dutch oven from Target is not only beautiful it’s affordably priced. And if you have a Target red card you earn an additional 5% off!Wooden cutting boards. They are so popular right now in decorating magazines. Propped up on your backsplash they add such a French-cooking flair to your kitchen. This set of three is handmade by Chase Vintage on Etsy so you would be supporting small business. And, they can be divided into three separate gifts.


Last, this cheeseboard set cannot be beaten.  You could elevate it with a few boxes of crackers, a block of sharp cheddar cheese, a few green apples, and a gorgeous bottle of wine. That would make a fantastic gift.
