Whether you need a gift for a foodie friend or a family member who likes to cook, these awesome ideas are sure to please. Even better, the list features several different price ranges so there truly is something for everyone on your list.

Cook With Sizzle

For the food lover on your list who appreciates style and performance, look no further than the Savora culinary gadget collection. With sleek lines, arresting curves and a palette of alluring colors, these kitchen gadgets will impress the most discerning of food lovers. The collection includes a garlic press ($29.99), rotary grater ($29.99), can opener ($29.99), oil mister ($24.99), ice cream scoop ($14.99) and peeler ($9.99). Each is available in eight striking colors.


Cookin’ It, Livin’ It, Lovin’ It

Need a cool gift for someone who loves to cook? Celebrity chef Guy Fieri had this red hot 10-piece nonstick aluminum cookware set created to his demanding specifications. Priced at $129.99, it comes with two fry pans, three sauce pans, a stock pot and four tempered glass lids. Each flaming red pan has a long-lasting, nonstick finish for healthy cooking, excellent release of foods and easy clean-up. They’re also oven-safe up to 350°F and safe for gas, electric and ceramic stove tops.


On the Cutting Edge

The Farberware Universal Block Cutlery Set comes in a brightly colored block filled with flexible rods instead of pre-drilled holes, so you can insert the knives and shears in any arrangement you like. The rod insert is removable for easy cleaning. The knives feature high-carbon, stainless steel blades for strength and durability. The colorful, ergonomic handles offer a comfortable grip. The set includes three knives, shears, and a universal block ($29.99).


Any Way You Spray It

Just in time for the holidays, Misto, the Gourmet Olive Oil Sprayer, has added fashionable patterns ($12.99) - houndstooth, damask and hearts - and bright new colors ($9.99) that bring a stylish touch to the kitchen. Misto can help your lucky gift recipients cook healthier, reduce the amount of oil they use when cooking, and add flavor to food when grilling, sautéing, roasting, and baking. Simply fill Misto with olive oil and spray. Misto is refillable, BPA-free and non-aerosol, so it doesn’t use chemical propellants.
