Nifty Gifty, Part 1

How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was fantastic. I baked, knitted a cupcake hat, ate, played with babies, cooked, ate more pie, knitted another hat, read, watched Tangled with my mother-in-law and daughter, shopped, drank starbucks and crocheted another hat.

The Black Friday shopping got me in the holiday mood. I love finding unique gifts that the receiver will actually enjoy and use.

Today, because I'm completely burned out on food, I thought it would be fun to post a nifty gifty list (all under $20!). Since there's so many fun foody things out there, I'll be posting multiple parts to this list. :) 

Is there a kid on your life who loves to cook or bake? This company has amazing products for them. Seriously. Frequently you'll find kid-friendly items in stores but they're usually really cheap and fall-apart when you actually try to use them for anything besides imaginary dough. However, these products are designed to not only be safe for children to use but also be practical so they can actually cook or bake!

Here's a few of my favorite of their items:

Have I mentioned that I love the non-sharp edges?

Yes, it will really cut. Just not their pretty fingers. :)

You can also get them all outfitted like a "real" chef:

And now, a few of my other favorite items for the adult chef in your life:

I bought this set as part of a wedding gift for my brother and his wife. I love the idea of them because each bowl is not only a prep bowl, it's also a measuring cup. From smallest to largest, they measure: 1/8 cup, 1/4 cup, 1/2 cup, 1 cup and 2 cups. You can have everything measure out perfectly while chopping up a storm. They also come in yellow, green and orange.

This company makes the best gourmet sauces, marinades, jams, jellies, baking mixes, etc. Chances are if you go in a kitchen store, you'll find a Stonewall Kitchen display. If you do, give in to them temptation and grab some! Grab a basket from your nearest craft or thrift store and you can create a custom gift basket for your friends and family.

Over the weekend I bought this tasty sauce. It's fan.tas.tic. My ice cream thanks me. My hips do not.


I also really like the Butterscotch Rum Sauce - $6.50  It's super yummy drizzled on pecan pie.

Then there's the Maple Balsamic Dressing - $6.95. Hello! Perfect for this time of year.

Have fun shopping!
