Champagne Baking Sheets
Baking sheets are obviously a must! I am not a baker, by any means – I hate to measure and simply do it because it’s the only way to share my recipes. These baking sheets are perfect for everything from meat, vegetables, peppers and so on! I love the champagne color and these hold up really well!
Teak Cutting Board
Every kitchen needs a teak cutting board. They are beautiful, long lasting and a pure staple in your kitchen. I also love anything that I can leave out on the counter and it not look like I just haven’t gotten around to cleaning the kitchen. This option is from amazon and has a smaller price tag than most. You can find these cutting boards anywhere and if you don’t have one – add this one to your list!
Le Creuset 5-Piece Utensils Set
I love this set! It is the perfect gift and a staple in my kitchen. It comes in great colors and again, something that can sit on the counter and add to your space. The base is large enough to also hold the majority of my wooden spoons, spatulas, etc. For less than $70, it is hard to beat gifting someone you love a Le Creuset box – I’d say that is the cook’s version of a little black box!

Staub 7 Quart Cocette
This Staub 7 Quart Oval Cocotte is MY FAVORITE thing in my kitchen. I use this every single day and will recommend it to everyone who wants to invest in a great dutch oven.

Staub Enameled Cast Iron Round Dutch Oven
This Staub 5 Quart Round Dutch Oven is the best thing Staub offers. This is the perfect size for someone cooking for 2 or for side dishes when cooking for a large group. Williams Sonoma has this ON SALE for $199 from the original $360!!!! Gift this to your parents, your siblings and make sure to put one on your list! Sits perfectly on your range and makes you look like you really know what you are doing.
A good knife set is ESSENTIAL to your kitchen!! I have the Wüsthof Knife Set that I was gifted but it is definitely on the pricey side. This Cuisinart Stainless Steel Hollow Handle Knives, Set of 15 has wonderful reviews and will definitely do the trick until you really want to invest in a quality knife block.
I love my food processor but I hate having to clean all of the pieces and get it all out. This Cuisinart Smart Immersion Blender is a life saver. Blends dressings, salsas, helps combine soups without dirtying another bowl or blender. I have given this to multiple people for Christmas and love to throw it in an adult gift exchange!
KitchenAid Stand Mixer

Lodge Cast Iron Skillet
Buy the 12 inch, the 15 inch, the 100 inch! You will use it! I keep my cast iron skillet on top of my range at all times because there isn’t a day that I don’t use it. Clean it off, oil it and place it back on the stove – there you go! Any other skillet people try to push on you just isn’t worth it in my opinion. You can not get better than cast iron and it lasts forever and ever. Trust me, we have about 5 from our grandparents. Grab this cast iron at Williams Sonoma or add it to your list Lodge Triple Seasoned Fry Pan. If you want to elevate it a little, ask for this gorgeous Le Creuset Skillet Pan that is currently $55 off.

Buy the Carbon Steel Wok here or copy and paste this link and send it to your mother in law that keeps asking for something you want.
Double Rotating Waffle Maker
We have the older version of this waffle maker and it makes them PERFECT every time!! It also makes double the waffles which leaves more time for cozying up on the couch and watching movies on your Saturday morning in.
