Food Blogger Bites: What top food bloggers want for the holidaysBabble Editors
Food bloggers have some of the prettiest kitchens we’ve ever seen — but that doesn’t mean everything on their foodie wish lists are already in their kitchen. As their interests (or their counterspace!) expands, so do their dreams of what tasty, Pinterest-worthy recipes would result if only they had a new knife set, or an unstoppable Vitamix mixer, or even a couple of vintage plates and linens to make their photos look that much more delectable.
We asked some of our Top 100 Mom Food Bloggers for the one thing they’re hoping for this holiday season. So if you’ve got a foodie to buy for on your list, check out these 20 ideas below. Think of it as a win-win: once they unwrap that brand-new butcher’s block, they’ll thank you in the only way they know how … with homemade desserts. We’re drooling just thinking about it.
Check out 20 great gift ideas for foodies after the jump!
A basket of vintage linens and plates 1 of 19A basket of vintage linens and plates. They make the photographs look more interesting and I'm kind of sick of my white plates in every photo. Or...an ice cream maker. Everyone loves ice cream.
-Kate, Kate from Scratch
Get a set of 9 vintage mix-n-match plates from Etsy, $144.99
A pressure canner 2 of 19I want a pressure canner. I've been canning tomatoes in a water bath, and I'm ready to up my skill level to pressure canning.
- Jaime, Prudent Baby
Get a Presto 23-quart pressure cooker and canner from Amazon, $70
A cake stand 3 of 19A cake stand. Cakes are much prettier and feel more festive when displayed atop a pretty stand. It doesn't have to be ostentatious in any way. I love things with simple clean design, that use natural elements, and is beautiful to look at on its own. I especially love the pedestals made by Herriot Grace.
- Jen, Delightful Delicacies
Get this cake stand from Herriot Grace
A 7-quart KitchenAid stand mixer 4 of 19I believe I already have my favorite Kitchen gift. It's my 7 Qt. KitchenAid Stand Mixer. Love it, love it, love it!
- Jonna, Get Off Your Butt and BAKE!
Get the 7-Qt. KitchenAid Stand Mixer from Amazon, $530
A copper jam pot 5 of 19I would really love to get a copper jam pot. I really would love to make more jams and I think that it is such a beautiful pot to have in the kitchen.
- Bree, Baked Bree
Get a Mauviel M'Passion Copper Preserving Pan from Sur La Table, $266
A new mandolin 6 of 19If I could get any gift for my kitchen it would probably be a new refrigerator or a new mandolin as mine is falling apart. Although I do not use a mandolin on a daily basis it can not do the job a knife can. There's no way I could make my Parmesan Scalloped Potato Stacks without it.
- Meredith, In Sock Monkey Slippers
Get a Norpro Mandolin from Target, $27
A Vitamix blender 7 of 19
A butcher’s block table 8 of 19I'm missing a butcher's block table. That would make me happy.
- Najwa, Delicious Shots
Get a John Boos Ab maple butcher block from Amazon, $575
A hutch 9 of 19Probably a beautiful hutch. We just moved into a new home and there is finally a spot for something like that. It would look so nice and would be great for storage too!
- Karen, 365 Days of Slow Cooking
Get a Home Styles wood bakers rack with two-door hutch, from Amazon, $482
A reclaimed solid wood dining table 10 of 19I would love a reclaimed solid wood dining table that I could take my pictures on. Though, my husband would say that a dining table is for eating on, but what does he know? He's a bit of a non-believer like that.
- Michelle, The Tiffin Box
Get an Emmerson reclaimed pine dining table from West Elm, from $999
Granite countertops 11 of 19Granite counter tops. I know, it's a weird wish, but with all the pies I roll out, breads, I knead, etc., having a counter top made of small tiles is really hard to work on. I have large cutting boards, but they're not always large enough. Santa, if you hear me, all I want for Christmas is a granite counter in the kitchen.
- Christiane, Taking on Magazines
Get a Panda granite counter top from BuildDirect.com, $130/piece
A new stove 12 of 19A new stove! The one we have is terrible. I bought a carbon-steel wok but found that I can't use it because our stove doesn't get hot enough. I bring it to my personal chef clients and use it on their stove instead!
- Kristy, The Wicked Noodle
Get a Premier 36 in. freestanding sealed burner gas range in stainless steel from Home Depot, $1,899
A double oven 13 of 19A double oven! I frequently push my oven's capacity to the max, so a double oven would be a dream for me.
- Annie, Annie's Eats
Geta Maytag 24 in. electric double wall oven in stainless steel from Home Depot, $1,499
A dishwasher 14 of 19Am I allowed to ask for a kitchen reno? If not, then I would get myself a dishwasher. I am set up in every other way, but still no dishwasher...
- Heidi, Lip Smacking
Get a GE front control dishwasher in white from Home Depot, $349
A KoMo Grain Mill 15 of 19Oh my! Besides a personal assistant who will follow me around wiping up after dribbling pots, sweeping away crumbs and doing the dishes? I'd really like to get a KoMo Grain Mill. We love using fresh ground flours because they're richer in flavors and nutrients than pre-ground, store-bought flours. The KoMo Mill is a stone grinder with a beautiful wooden base. It'd look awfully nice on my counter.
- Jenny, Nourished Kitchen
Get the KoMo Classic Mill from Amazon, $500
An ice cream maker 16 of 19An ice cream maker as my husband and son love ice creams.
- Shireen, Ruchik Randhap (Delicious Cooking)
Get a Cuisinart Stainless-Steel Ice Cream Maker from Williams-Sonoma, $90
A new set of knives 17 of 19I would love a new set of knives. The ones I have right now are old and just don't cut well anymore, so new knives are definitely on my Christmas wish list.
- Megan, Food and Whine
Get a Chefmate 26-piece cutlery set from Target, $27
An All-Clad cookware set 18 of 19I dream about a complete set of All-Clad pots and pans. Expensive, yes, but I'd never have to buy another pot or pan again.
- Kelly, Dinner du Jour
Get an All-Clad 9-piece cookware set from Crate & Barrel, $659.95
A Breville Juice Fountain 19 of 19Probably either a Juice Fountain to get all kinds of freshly squeezed juices or a slow cooker for those busy days.
- Manu, Manu's Menu
Get the Breville Juice Fountain Plus from Breville USA, $150
