We are down to the wire on Christmas. Here are a few of my favorite things that would be great stocking stuffers or last minute gifts.  Everything is under $30 and a few things that might seem unexpected, but will be used over and over.  The whisk adds such a magical touch.  These glass farmer's baskets have a thousand uses in the kitchen.  Have someone on your list that wants nothing to do with the kitchen?  These also happen to be the perfect size for business cards... sure would be a fun pop of color on a desk.  The egg timer might seem like a silly gift, but the person will call you every time they make a hard boil egg and tell you how great you are.  I can't say I make hard boiled eggs all that often, but when I do, I am so glad I have this little gadget and it takes up no space at all.  Anyone who likes to cook is bound to have a lingering smell of fried bacon or a garlic scent that doesn't smell so good at breakfast the next morning.  This is the absolute best smelling candle in the world... homey and fresh all at the same time.  Know a brown bagger or a green grocery shopper?  Baggu bags are perfect.  They are lightweight and portable and you can always have an extra bag on hand and not even realize it because of the small little pouch it scrunches up in.  The microplane zester is such a star.  From zesting citrus to the perfect shaving of parmesan on pasta, it's a necessity.  


  1. i LOVE the reusable bag! Another great stocking stuffer is Rachel Ray's Lazy Spoon - so wonderful! Merry Christmas! xo

  2. The egg timer is so cute, and I love the farmers' market baskets!

  3. The egg timer is such a life saver! You are right. If you ever make hard boiled eggs even once, this is amazing. Great list!

  4. My mother loves your blog and bought everyone an egg timer in their stocking. Everyone laughed at first and thought it was so random, but we have already used it three times since Christmas! Really perfect small gift!
