2015 Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies + My Favorite Things GIVEAWAY! | FiveHeartHome.com

If you’re obsessed with cooking-related tools, gadgets, and accessories (or if you’re shopping for someone who is), you’ve come to the right place! I’ve rounded up a current collection of my favorite kitchen-y things for your holiday shopping pleasure — some of which I own and love and some of which are on my wish list this year. So I hope this gift guide gets your juices flowing as to what you might buy your foodie friends and family this holiday season…or what to ask Santa to bring you!

Some of the links below are affiliate links, which allows me to bring you free
content on Five Heart Home! However, I selected each of these products to share
with you because I own them, want them, or generally think they’re fabulous!

What say we start off with an adorable apron?! Because if you have to peel potatoes or wash dishes, you may as well look cute doing it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ This one comes in lots of lovely colors and patterns.

And while you’re busy looking adorable, how fun and festive are these colorful fluted bowls? Maybe it’s the food blogger prop hoarder in me, but I’m pretty sure I need a set in my life.

While we’re on the topic of colorful, everyone should own a pair of silicone oven mitts…and just look at this bright and happy polka-dot set (available in other colors as well)!

So with cute out of the way, how ’bout practical?

As many of you already know, I’m currently working on the manuscript for a slow cooker cookbook, and seeing as how I pretty much have three different crock pots running 24/7, I’m frequently asked my opinion on my favorite/the best slow cooker. So here it is, folks…a spiffy, spacious Crock Pot that’s programmable — which is handy — but most importantly, its low setting doesn’t run as hot as a lot of newer model slow cookers out there.

Programmable Slow Cooker | 2015 Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies @ FiveHeartHome.com

And to go with that slow cooker, I’ve been frequently using a few other things, which I find to be indispensable kitchen tools…

…a powerful immersion blender with a removable shaft for easy washing…

Immersion Blender | 2015 Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies @ FiveHeartHome.com

…a handy-dandy food scale, which I use literally every day in the kitchen, whether I’m cooking with my slow cooker or not…

Food Scale | 2015 Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies @ FiveHeartHome.com

…and a digital food thermometer with a probe that measures the temperature of the food as it cooks. Again, I use this guy all the time.

And while I don’t yet have a pair of these Meat Claws, I think they’d come in really handy for all of the shredded meat I make in the slow cooker, like pulled pork and chicken and such.

Meat Claws | 2015 Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies @ FiveHeartHome.com

We recently moved into a new house, and I’ve really been missing the herb garden in the yard of my old house. So until I can plant a new one this spring, I’m planning an indoor herb garden with a variety of herbs

…in this cute, tiered little pot.

Or, if I end up not feeling that ambitious, maybe I’ll finally splurge for an AeroGarden Indoor Herb Garden instead. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And if you’re a fellow lover of fresh herbs, how cool are these Herb Scissors?!

Any coffee lovers out there? This cute travel coffee mug pretty much sums it up for me…

…and I use my milk/coffee frother every single morning for that coffee shop effect at home.

Milk Frother for Coffee | 2015 Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies @ FiveHeartHome.com

Alas, I probably drink too much coffee, so one of my resolutions for 2016 is to drink more water. I’m not naturally inclined to do so, so maybe this Fruit Infuser Water Bottle would be a good incentive?

If you’re a regular reader, you may already be familiar with my infatuation/obsession with Nielsen Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract. In fact, I buy it by the 32-ounce jug, which is actually a really good deal on Amazon.

Along the same lines, I’ve been dying to try Rodelle Gourmet Baking Cocoa soon.

And now for a few of my practical favorites!

I’ve gradually been replacing all of my Tupperware/plastic-type food storage containers with glass containers, and this 22-piece set is a great way to start.

Glass Food Storage Containers | 2015 Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies @ FiveHeartHome.com

I’ve also been switching over to glass storage containers in my pantry to keep everything organized and in sight. These simple, classic Wide-Mouth Glass Canisters are pretty much perfect for that.

And of course, Chalkboard Label Stickers are the perfect way to label them.

Speaking of classic, who doesn’t love the usefulness and versatility of a Silpat silicone baking mat?

I love, love, LOVE my Double Belgian Waffle Maker! With two irons going at once, making waffles is twice as fast, and they turn out fluffy and evenly baked since the iron rotates.

A Non-Aerosol Oil Sprayer is another kitchen must-have if you prefer to avoid the propellants found in most store-bought cooking sprays.

A gorgeous wooden cutting board is always a great gift for any foodie.

And there are so many yummy, can’t-wait-to-try recipes out there for baked donuts made in a nonstick donut pan!

Finally, let’s end with a few fun wish list items, shall we?

Christmas baking would be twice as nice with these adorable Santa Measuring Spoons.

Trivia-loving foodies rejoice! How FUN does this Foodie Fight Trivia Game look?

And to end our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies, there’s nothing I love more than a new cookbook. Since I had the pleasure of meeting the Pioneer Woman a few weeks ago at a food blogging conference in Chicago, her latest Dinnertime cookbook is definitely at the top of my list!

  1. Great gift guide! I love everything! I’m drinking from my “But first, coffee” mug right now, and it’s my favorite! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Thanks, Heidi! Coffee always comes first around here…glad to know I’m not alone. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. WOW…lots of great stuff. Never thought of checking out Amazon for good vanilla.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Thanks, Debbie! The Amazon price for the big jug of NM vanilla divides out per ounce to be really reasonable (compared to the price for this brand at the grocery store). So if you appreciate great vanilla and do a lot of baking, I highly recommend it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Thanks for the great gift guide and the great giveaways!
    I like The Pioneer Womans cookbooks too!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      PW’s cookbooks are so great, aren’t they, Melissa? Yummy recipes and entertaining stories!

  4. What a great gift guide!

  5. Girl, you need to just go buy yourself a pair of those meat claws! They work really well, but more importantly: they are so much fun to use! I got a little shred-happy when I first got mine, the family finally had to say NO MORE shredded beef for a while.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Ha, Tina! Don’t you worry…the meat claws are SO on my Christmas list to Santa this year! And then, everyone in my family will probably fight over the privilege of using them first! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Great products, wish everyone luck!

  7. I have seen so many gift lists this year, but I must say that by far, this is the only one that I actually saw items I’d want and/or already have, but love. These are *excellent* suggestions. Thanks for sharing them!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Oh, it makes me so happy to hear that, Carrie! I take a lot of time trying to find items that I do or would find useful in hopes that my readers will feel the same way. I’m glad that you do! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. love all your recipes can’t wait to try them

  9. your give away is just wonderful I LOVE EVERTHING

Speak Your Mind
