Holiday Gift Guide For the Cook

2018 Holiday Gift Guides

1. S’well cocktail shaker and glass set: S’well bottles have been all the rage lately, so why not use them in your bar? I love everything marble, and these are a sweet gift for the friend that loves making cocktails.

2. SMEG kettle: Everything SMEG makes is so adorable, and I feel like everyone could use a better kettle! Perhaps pair it with a thoughtful assortment of teas?

3. Cocktail tool set: I currently have a very space-inefficient way of storing my cocktail tools, and this is a dream – so chic and takes up little space.

4. Cake stand: when it was Lu’s birthday, I realized I didn’t have any cake stands! I think everyone should own a pretty cake stand for those special occasions.

5. Mini waffle maker: for that friend who has little kids or lives alone, the mini waffle maker is the best (I saw it on HSN and have wanted it ever since). You can make mini breakfasts or just snack-appropriate portions!

6. Philips air fryer: YES, I’m all about my air fryer now, and I love my Philips one. I have the XXL, but this one is much more space efficient and gets the same job done.

7. Inspiralizer and cookbooks: need I explain? This is the perfect gift for the healthy chef in your life (or the one that wants to be healthier.) We’ll be having a Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale, so wait until then! Subscribe to our newsletter to be notified once it goes live!

8. Mealthy pressure cooker: the past year has been all about the pressure cooker! I got a Mealthy this year and have LOVED it! A great addition to any enthusiastic cook’s kitchen gadget collection.

9. Pancake art kit: OK, maybe I just want this for myself, but I think both adults and kids will benefit from some fun pancake art, right? Christmas tree pancakes, anyone?

10. Ice mold wine chiller: how cool is this? For the entertainer, this wine chiller is also an ice mold, so you can beautifully display your chilled beverage.

11. Cheese markers: I love the look of these cheese markers, and I feel like cheese boards aren’t complete without markers.

12. And one more, a bit different – a Prep+Rally Meal Prep Subscription: my friend Dini created an online meal prep subscription platform that hundreds and hundreds of people are loving! She does Instagram lives on Sundays where she preps all of your dinners for the week, together. She’s offering Inspiralized subscribers a 10% off discount on all subscriptions (1 month, 6 month, or 1 year) – use code INSPIRALIZED. If you have a friend who loves to meal prep or needs inspiration, this is a great gift!

Wendy says:
Ali, I saw on your gift guide that you are recommending the Mealthy Multi-Pot. Could you go into a bit more detail why you are recommending this over InstaPot? I understand that the extras included with Mealthy make it a good value, but as far as cooking results and any other considerations, is it superior to the IP? I love my Inspiralizer, follow you daily, and respect your judgment on cooking matters! Thanks!
Candice says:
Hopefully Ali replies, but I asked her this once on IG and she said it was simply price! They are both good options!
Carly Glazer says:
Yes! These are both good options, the Mealthy is just the one that we use! - and those extras don't hurt either!

VEGETARIAN ZUCCHINI & QUINOA LASAGNA, a fan favorite 👏🏼😍 the zucchini cooks to just al dente for a real lasagna-like texture and the quinoa gives this vegetarian dish a burst of protein and texture. I love making this during the summertime with fresh zucchinis and basil, but it’s amazing year round ☀️ grab the recipe up on the blog! ⁣

the crib to bed and the nap to quiet time transitions all happened within a month or so of each other for us and today on the blog, I’m sharing all about how we got through them smoothly-ish 🤪 also, as just a general thought, all of these baby and toddler transitions tend to be “easier” than we hype them up to be. I think the anxiety of the unknown makes them scarier than they are! anyway, you can check the post out on the blog today for all the details! it’s a quick but to-the-point post ✌🏼 ⁣

and not to contradict myself 🙈, but I need all the tips for putting toddlers together in the same room, which I’m going to have to do soon, so we can start preparing the twins’ nursery (we’re planning on moving Luca into Roma’s room and using Luca’s room for the twins, because it’s larger.) moms/dads who have done it - what’s the secret?! 🤔⁣
