Hi!! I can’t believe the holiday season is already upon us and it is time to do ALL the holiday shopping! Are you ready?!
I am working on my holiday shopping lists and I figured you probably are, too – or at least planning to do it very soon! I am definitely not one of those last minute shoppers – I like to have things bought and wrapped way beforehand! Too much stress to do it day before, but I know some people roll that way!
With Black Friday and Cyber Monday coming up, I figured I would bump my cookbook gift guide early so you have plenty of time to shop til you drop and get some amazing gifts for foodies! There are 10 cookbook pairings in this gift guide, each paired with an essential item that corresponds with that particular book. Whether you’re shopping for a budding mixologist or a child baker, there’s something for everyone!
Now let’s get to shopping, shall we?
This is my first cookbook, Out of the Box Desserts, so of course I had to recommend it! It’s chock-full of amazing semi-homemade recipes for the baker in your life looking for something extra special to whip up! I paired it with these signature and unique Sweetapolita sprinkles because she has the BEST sprinkle blends out of everyone around!
For the organized meal prepper in your life, this is a natural pairing! Skinnytaste Meal Prep is written by my friend Gina who is an absolute whiz at creating skinnified recipes of things we love without sacrificing flavor! I paired this with the OXO 11lb digital scale which is a game changer for anyone looking to meal prep and portion their foods.
My friend Rebecca wrote this book, Ready, Set, Dough! and it is fantastic since everyone is now interested in baking bread! This comprehensive cookbook will teach you how to make all the carby deliciousness. I paired it with a banneton which is essentially a fancy bread proofing basket that will make any amateur bread baker swoon!
Tieghan is one of my blogging friends and this cookbook of hers, Super Simple, is absolutely amazing! Novice and experienced home chefs will swoon over her insanely gorgeous photography and delicious recipes. I paired her book with this stunning Nakano Chef’s Knife which is a favorite among celebrity chefs and internationally renowned sushi chefs alike! Between the beautiful wood grain handle and matching mirrored blade and the fact that it chops, dices and juliennes with ease, it will soon become a favorite in the kitchen!
My friend Barbara’s book, The Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook, is for all of your pressure cooker needs! It has tons of delicious and foolproof recipes for your Instant Pot, which is why I paired the new Instant Pot Duo Nova with it! This impressive 9-in-1 multicooker sautes, sous vides, bakes, pressure cooks, slow cooks, makes rice and yogurt, steams, bakes and so much more and is the fastest and most impressive model of 2020!
Since most of us couldn’t go to Disney parks this year, why not bring them to you with this amazing pairing!? The Unofficial Disney Parks Cookbook has 100 recipes inspired by the magical and delicious park treats! From beignets to churros, Monte Cristo sandwiches and Dole Whips, there is something for every craving! Naturally, it had to be paired with a Mickey Mouse spatula!
Since we can’t entertain as much as we’d hoped to this year, give the entertainer in your life something to look forward to with this cheeseboard gift pairing! My friend Maegan wrote this fantastic cookbook with tons of board inspiration that goes beyond your standard charcuterie! Paired with a gorgeous wooden cheeseboard and knife set from Crate and Barrel for the perfect hostess gift!
Aspiring young chefs will love this huge and comprehensive cookbook featuring over 100 recipes kids will enjoy cooking and eating! Of course, it has to be paired with this adorable Buffalo check kids’ apron so they feel like the professional chef they aspire to be!
Air frying is the way of the future; are you ready? Perfect for the experimental and trendy chef or foodie in your life, this pairing is a game changer! This book is PACKED with 600 (!!!) amazing recipes for air frying. I paired it with this state-of-the-art Cosori air fryer which has a dishwasher safe fry basket and tons of pre-sets for French fries, poultry, veggies, bread, bacon, and more!
For the mixologist or astrologer in your life, this astrology cookbook is SUPER fun and unique! I love how it has tons of cosmic-inspired cocktails for each sign – some classic cocktails to more unique ones! Paired with this gorgeous etched shaker, this would be the greatest gift for the hostess, entertainer, or bartender!
Well, that’s it for now! I hope you enjoyed!
Have a super sweet day and a great Thanksgiving weekend!
