The act of gift-giving during Christmas is a perfect example of families coming together to celebrate life and happiness. But I know gift-giving can be hard for some. The trick is to try and keep it simple by buying gifts you know, for sure, that people will use around the house. For me, that means items in the kitchen!
I can’t live without these 10 items from around my kitchen. You will see what I mean, trust me! All of these wares help me create beautiful meals that feed my family and bring everyone together! And what more could you possibly ask for in a Christmas gift?
10 Holiday Gift Ideas from Stacy Lyn Harris
When it comes to plates, bowls, and serving platters, I try to make sure I’m presenting my dishes in the best possible way. That’s why I like this set of ceramic dinnerware from Food52.
This gorgeous cake stand from Mosser Glass lends an elegant flair to the presentation of your beautiful desserts and cakes. I love cake stands! This one is one of my favorites.
Tired of the dirty dishes piling up while you’re cooking? These mixing bowls will simplify the cooking process. They also have a chic look to them, so you can decorate with them when you aren’t using them.
I’ve written about the benefits of cast iron cookware before. Cast iron will outlast you and maybe your whole family if cared for correctly. Some people I know think of their cast iron skillets as heirlooms. Keep in mind, though, cast iron skillets require great care and maintenance if you want them to last forever!
Hamilton Beach makes some pretty reliable cookware, and this food processor is no exception. Some of my recipes require sturdy kitchen tools, so if you know that struggle, this one’s for you.
Too many kitchen injuries start with dull, unreliable knives. This bad boy from Shun will last you forever.
Save your best jams, jellies, and relishes with this awesome canning kit. I use it to preserve my famous Red-Pepper Jelly, along with my Squash Relish and my Tomato Sauce. After canning, I can enjoy my favorite recipes all year long!
If you often find yourself running out of oven space while entertaining large groups, or even during the busy holiday season, this roaster oven from Hamilton Beach is here to save the day! You can cook, bake, roast, and even serve your food in this awesome thing. I wish I had 10 more of them!
I love seeing the look on my husband’s face when I bring out some of my Peach Tea in this fabulous pitcher after a long day of working in the gardens.
And last but not least, we have my cookbook! Trust me, my copy of the Harvest Cookbook is just as dog-eared as anyone’s, and I wrote it! It just goes to show just how many recipes are in this book, even the author forgot some of them! I’ve heard many a tale about how my cookbook turned out to be the best Christmas gift under the tree, and that makes my heart so happy! I want to bring happiness to your family, too, so please get yourself or someone special a copy of my cookbook and let me know what you think!
