Inexpensive Kitchen Gift Ideas
If you’re looking to buy a gift for someone who likes to cook or bake, this list of affordable kitchen gift ideas will help you pick out something unique or useful. We own many of these items and use them on a regular enough basis that I think they are worth the space in our cupboard or pantry.
Star War Burned Wooden Spoons Utensil Set
These are amazing for a Star Wars fan! They’ll definitely want to display these hanging or in a crock. There are other cute designs, including Nightmare before Christmas and more! We are a big fan of bamboo cooking utensils. They wash up easily with soap and water.

Primatives by Kathy Fun Dish Towel
You will love gifting these towels with funny/sweet sayings on them. There are options for every gift recipient, including grammas and moms, dog lovers, friends, teachers, and more. Some are sweet, some are sassy, and some are, let’s say… a bit boozy.

Totally Bamboo State Destination Bamboo Serving and Cutting Board
Pick the perfect patriotic or state pride cutting board for everyone on your list. Who couldn’t use a new cutting board that is attractive enough to leave out on the counter, or to use as a serving platter? These come with a hole drilled and can be used as a wall hanging as well. Most states are available, or choose the United States. I think this would be a great option for a “greed” game gift exchange – you could even wrap it up in cellophane with a few packages of nuts or cheeses to really make it pop.
SUNWILL Insulated Wine Tumbler with Lid Rose Gold, Double Wall Stainless Steel Stemless Insulated Wine Glass 12oz.
This is such a pretty tumbler – perfect for any type of drink! Pair it with a bottle of wine, a box of tea, cocoa, or coffee, or fill it with some candy! Super cute teacher gift too!

Lodge Logic L10SK3 10-Inch Pre-Seasoned Skillet
We use our cast iron skillets constantly and Lodge is a great American brand to purchase. These come pre-seasoned, so less food will stick from the start and they will become even more non-stick with regular use. Cast iron pans are nearly indestructible with proper care, and can last for decades. If you’re only cooking for 1-2 people, the 10 inch skillet is the best option and is less expensive. Note: these pans are heavy, so if your recipient has strength limitations, these may not be a great option. We usually leave ours on the stovetop so we aren’t constantly having to move it around, but you can safely store it in the oven. They are completely oven-safe, so if you accidentally turn on the oven with it in there, it will be perfectly fine (just hot!).
Comfify Collapsible Colander Over the Sink Colander with Handles
Does your metal colander take up to much space in your cabinet? If so, put this one on YOUR list this year! You can also find this type of item at TJMaxx, Marshall’s store! This collapsible colander comes in different colors and stores away easily and out of the way.
Home Canning Kits
Many folks are going back to basics and learning to live more self-sufficiently for financial and environmental reasons. Canning is back in style again and this canning kit will help the recipient get started. Include a canning cook book or some canning jars for a more complete gift. What’s included: 6 Pack canning jar lifter Tongs for beginners included a wide mouth funnel, jar wrench, jar lifter, magnetic lid lifter, canning tongs, bubble popper. Many more styles to choose from.
Oster Titanium Infused DuraCeramic Belgian Waffle Maker
Waffles are the new doughnut – but even better because you can waffle nearly everything, including cookie dough, eggs, leftover mashed potatoes (do a Pinterest search for ideas). My personal favorite? Waffled glazed doughnuts. The waffle pattern creates the perfect nooks for the glaze to pool. This waffle maker is small, but cooks fast enough if you need to make multiple batches. We use this exact waffle maker 2 to 3 times a week to make our breakfast waffles.
AmazonBasics 12-Piece Colored Kitchen Knife Set
Gifting knives may not be exciting, but if the recipient likes cooking, new sharp knives will be welcome. This set is particular great because they each have a cover and can be kept in a drawer without dulling the blades or stabbing someone. Reviews are great! What’s included: 12-piece colored knife set includes 6 knives and 6 matching knife covers; Knives include: paring knife, utility knife, Santoku knife, carving knife, chef’s knife, and bread knife.

Are you a member of Amazon Prime? If not, here are some of the benefits:
FREE two-day shipping (and sometimes one-day shipping and in some locations, even same-day shipping) on all your favorite things like paper towels, and furniture, and clothes and, well, everything, should be enough to entice you to take advantage of this incredible deal.
Turns out, there’s more to Amazon Prime than just free shipping. Here are 6 other benefits to this incredible service. Alexa, sign me up.
If you are a Amazon Prime member, you can set up Amazon Household. You can add one other adult and up to four teenagers and four children on your Prime Household. That means everyone gets to take advantage of the awesome perks.
Here’s how to create your Household.
Through Household, your teens can shop til they drop without actually spending any money. That’s right: you have approval powers. We both know a trip to the mall with the fire-monster that is your 15-year-old daughter will be an entree of eye-rolling served with a side of teenage angst. Skip the dressing room battles and let that person who used to love you pick out her own damn clothes. And then veto and approve with the judicious powers that only a mother or father could have and love.
So your teenager has picked out eight pairs of jeans, and you’re going to let her keep one. With Prime Wardrobe, she can try all of them before she buys.
Mandatory fun coming up? Order all the dresses or pants in the land without spending a dime. Yep, order up to eight items at a time, only pay for what you keep, and the returns are free and easy. And you never have to leave your house.
With more than two million songs and curated playlists, listening to your favorite tunes just got easier. Download the Amazon music app and listen offline.
Set your shopping guilt aside and tell yourself that you’re doing it for a good cause with AmazonSmile.
“AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. You can choose from over one million organizations to support.”
A few good causes I use AmazonSmile for when I make an Amazon purchase are, a local animal rescue and the local Humane Society. My daughter uses her AmazonSmile perk to support various Veterans organizations. The list is almost endless for ways to help.
Jack Ryan isn’t going to watch itself. Neither will the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, the entire Suits series, countless Disney movies, or thousands of other shows, all included with your Prime membership. Best part? With the app you can download all of these to watch offline. Alexa, book me a cross-country flight.
More of a binge-reader than a binge-watcher? Good on ya. Prime has something for you, too. Prime Books gives you access to thousands of books that you can read on your Kindle (or through the Kindle app if you don’t have a separate device). You is smart.
