There is still significant value in owning cookbooks. They are durable, easy to manage, and you can even bookmark your favorite recipes or write down added ingredients! There are also many ways to display cookbooks in the kitchen for that traditional homestead appeal.

4. Air Fryer

Air fryers are popular cooking tools due to their efficiency and health benefits. An air fryer prepares fried food with approximately 80% less fat than traditionally fried food. They also cook fried food in less time, making it a smart holiday gift for someone with a busy schedule.

5. Knife Set

A new site of knives can be highly useful for anyone who prepares food frequently or in large volumes. Knife sets vary in terms of size, price, and functionality.

6. Wine Stoppers

Festive wine stoppers help the wine lover in your life save time AND show holiday spirit. Search for wine stoppers that guarantee a vacuum seal for added functionality and freshness.

7. Smart Thermometer

Making sure that meat is the correct temperature can be the most stressful part of cooking. A smart thermometer all but eliminates the possibility of undercooked food. Bluetooth technology connects the device to a smartphone for seamless and worry-free cooking.
