Picking a gift for a food-loving friend or loved one always seems like an easy task. Just walk into a kitchen store and pick what looks most intriguing, right? WRONG. That’s how you end up burdening one of your favorite people with more immersion blenders than they know what to do with, or worse, a completely useless kitchen gadget.

We have a list of gifts for cooks that are not only a whole lot less expensive than that ice cream maker you think your person really wants, but are also guaranteed to be appreciated. We’re talking basics here, and sometimes that’s the best way to go.
