    Get her some special spices or flavored oils. These are great for you and her!

    Good Luck!

    A good set of stainless steel pots and pans or a quality knive set. Maybe even a funky apron or a gourmet food item you can share.

    How about a cooking class? Our local college offers 6-9 week classes and are not expensive:) Good luck!

    If there’s a cooking game, I’d love to know about it!!

    My husband does really well for me for kitchen stuff. Have you heard her say she doesn’t have a certain size pot or pan, or she’d love Le Creuset someday, or does she have a mixer but doesn’t have all the attachments? Do you hear her talking about her favorite Food TV chef?

    I mentioned one time that I hadn’t had crab legs in ages, and he bought a case of crab legs, had them shipped overnight, with the crab claw crackers and picks.

    He knows I don’t like Rachael Ray, so he bought me her cookbooks and a t-shirt! (Yes, this was really hilarious that day)
    My bread machine was dying, so he got me a great one!

    It can be the smallest things. I got a ceramic bowl in my favorite color to keep kosher salt in on the stove. He got me an electric pepper grinder with a light. I broke my kitchen timer so he got me two from Polder, and one has a strap for the neck so you can walk around the house and do other stuff while things cook.

    If she loves cooking as much as I do, anything kitchen related is good. You could toss a cookbook in my general direction and I’ll be in the kitchen for a couple days learning the new stuff.

    Or you could buy nice table linens and napkins, a set of candle holders, specialty glasses and while she cooks you set the table for a romantic meal.

    Us foodies love our gizmos and gadgets. Makes us easy to shop for.

    First, what types of food does she enjoy cooking most? Breads, desserts, main dishes, candies, cakes? Then go to a kitchen store and buy her the coolest gadget to make her life easier when she makes this stuff. You know the kind, it’s what she’d never buy herself in a gadgillion years. Ask the clerk for help.

    Secondly, to make her smile, make her a Cook’s Survival Kit. Put in a special, mild, liquid handsoap to put in the kitchen. Because we wash our hands so often, having lotion there is good, too! Stick a bottle of wine in there. A little wine for the sauce, a little wine for the cook always makes me happy! If she doesn’t drink alcohol, slip in a mix of her favorite, relaxing beverage so she doesn’t stress doing all that cooking.

    Got a favorite photo? Upload it to and they’ll put it on an apron for her. Runs under $20.00. Check out and click on “Photos” for more ideas. Snapfish or Kodak also make trivets. Toss in a “coupon” for a massage from you for a day when she’s done a lot of cooking. Maybe bandaids and burn ointment. Just add a bunch of small things to this survival kit that are fun and thoughtful.

    Speaking of thoughtful, has she expressed a wish that something were different about her kitchen? If she’d like it painted or something, consider making a coupon for her.

    Another thoughtful gift for the kitchen might be one of those under-the-counter stereos.

    Oh, another good place to find intensely cool gadgets for a good price is Tuesday Morning. There’s probably one near you. If you haven’t been there, you’re missing out.
    Here’s the link:

    Good luck!

    why don’t you just splurge and buy her a kitchen aid every woman wants a kitchen aid. I got one and I love it

    Get cooking videos of her favorite cooking shows. Put them in a huge basket with a bottle of wine and glasses and a cooking apron

    OK, it’s not really a novelty item, but the one kitchen thing I want most this year is a Thermapen Super-Fast Instant Read Thermometer. They’re crazy expensive, so I’d never spend the money on myself, but I’d use it constantly.

    As for games, check out Funagain Games’ web site: they have 5 pages of games in the Food & Beverage category.

    Good luck, and happy holidays!
