Good Better Best Holiday Gift Ideas-For Your Best Cook!

With the holidays right around the corner, I thought I would take a break from recipes and give you some of my Good Better Best favorite kitchen items as ideas for gifts for the cook in your life...or for you to put on your own Santa list.  These are items that I use every day in the Good Better Best kitchen.

1) Spoonulas!
These are great for cooking and baking and make fun stocking stuffers.  Red, Green and White tied with a ribbon also make a festive hostess gift.

These are from Rachel Ray

2) Herbs of Provence

I am a big fan of Herbs of Provence.  I use them to season soups and make excellent grilled vegetables when combined with olive oil.  A fun little pot of these amazing herbs are much better than coal in your favorite cook's stocking! Available at Williams Sonoma.


1) Vinturi Wine Aerator
I bought one of these for Running Daddy last year for Christmas and he uses it for every glass of wine he pours.  Instantly aerates wine and makes a cool sound as the wine goes through! $39.95 at Crate and Barrel.

2) Giada Food Processor
I purchased this food processor at Target this summer and have been quite pleased.  Very user friendly, it has been excellent for making pestos and blended soups.  Target exclusive!

1) Calphalon 12 inch pan
This is simply the best pan I own.  I probably use it at least 3-4 nights per week and almost six years later I am still obsessed with it.  It pan sears chicken beautifully and you can brown taco meat in a snap.  While it is in the higher price range it is totally worth it.  You don't need a lot of cookware in your kitchen but the pieces you have should be the best you can afford and this is a must buy!

2) Wusthof Knives
I feel the same way about these basic knives as I do about the Calphalon pan above...simply love them!  Again, you don't need a lot of knives, you just need the best basic knives that you can afford.  Running Daddy and I received these as a wedding gift and I use them every day, especially the Chef's knife. is so fun to say Wusthof! $299.95 at Crate and Barrel.

So I hope that you have some Good Better Best gift ideas!  Leave me a comment below if you have any questions about other gift ideas.

Enjoy the Best holidays!
