Charming Gift Ideas for the Friend Who Loves to Cook

personalised gift

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from all those years watching Friends, is that every group has a Monica. The one friend that knows how to make one hell of a chicken parmigiana and always brings a surprise desert to get-togethers. Oh, thank God for those friends, they truly make our lives better. So, whenever the occasion arises, there’s no better way to repay them for making our stomaches happy than with a personalised gift. While it may seem like they already own every kitchen-related item under the sun, they will definitely appreciate a useful and thoughtful gift to add to their enormous collection. Like for instance the following ones.

A Personalised Apron

Personalised apron gifts are always a great idea, as a person that spends a lot of time in the kitchen mixing up sauces can never own enough aprons. So, all you need to do is make sure to get them something that will stand out from their collection. Go on the hunt for personalised apron gifts that complement your friend’s personality. And don’t forget to choose a fabric that’s easy to clean and breathable enough to keep them comfortable in the hot kitchen. And don’t think of it as a housewife-ish gift – an apron is definitely a win for everyone who’s an avid cook, including Meghan Markle.

Spice Containers

There’s nothing wrong with keeping spices and herbs in the bags they came in. But there’s definitely something nice about having cute containers to place them in. So yes, spice containers will definitely be appreciated as a gift. You can get some containers with a chalkboard label which will allow your friend to use them for whatever spices or ingredients they like. Not only will you help your friend reduce the risk of using the wrong spice, but they’ll also get some charming decorative elements to grace their countertop.

A Serving Set

People who love to impress with their cooking skills, also like to impress with their presentations. So, a gorgeous set of serving pieces is a wonderful gift idea for the cook who cares as much about the way the food is served as they do about the way it tastes. A handcrafted, engraved serving set will surely leave your friend jumping with joy.

A Cookbook

Experimenting with new recipes is always exciting for a cooking enthusiast. So getting your friend a cookbook to jump start their creativity is always a good idea. The only problem is that there are thousands of them, from authors such as celebrities and even politicians. So, make sure to avoid those, and instead stick to recipes from experienced chefs.
