You may be surprised to learn most of these awesome gift ideas are from Amazon!

As Black Friday (and Thanksgiving!) shopping gets crazier every year more and more I find myself shopping online. And one of my favorite places to shop is Amazon!

Because they have everything! And prime, free two-day shipping. If you have not yet tried Prime I’d recommend grabbing this 30 Day FREE TRIAL so you can at least use it over the Christmas holidays!

As a mom with three little ones it is definitely worth it to not have to go out into the holiday shopping hubbub. As a home cook I love creating delicious meals for my family but I have to have the right tools to do it!

Amazon has so many affordable and quality choices which makes shopping their a no-brainer!

20 Home Cook Gifts for 2020

Gifts For Stepping Up Your Chef Game

Immersion Blender–Perfect for whipping up a creamy soup like my Curried Butternut Squash Soup or blending a smoothie, like any one of these healthy breakfast smoothies. This one is really highly rated and comes with all the attachments you will need!

A proper chef’s knife is a home cook upgrade you may be looking for! This beautiful knife is lower priced and highly rated, but this professional grade one is the gold standard chef knife!

Instant Pot or Air Fryer — These new fangled gadgets are beloved by many for their quick cooking times and simple to use cooking methods! Perfect for a home chef itching to try out something new! Both normally go on sale around the holidays, so keep your eye open on Black Friday!!

These liquid measuring cups are amazing! One of my favorite practical kitchen additions this year! The angled measuring piece makes it super easy to measure liquids! Definitely worth the upgrade! 

Gift Ideas for the KitchenAid Lover

Kitchenaid stand mixer — I love my Kitchenaid mixer, I always recommend it for wedding registries, but if you don’t already have one this is a GIFT beyond GIFT for bakers and home chefs! We got my mom one a few years ago and it is her favorite thing! She uses it to whip up huge batches of cookies so it really is a win for everyone! I adore all the color choices too! I have butter yellow! Getting a specific Kitchenaid attachment is another fun idea — pasta maker, food grinder, or ice cream maker. 

Practical and Cute Kitchen Upgrades for the Culinary Enthusiast

Cute and Colorful Colander! — Practical things can be beautiful too! I love this sturdy colander and it comes in four vibrant shades. Perfect for styling on open shelving!

Pie Pan  — This gorgeous pie plate from Emile Henry designs should not be hiding up in a cupboard! Put it front and center with a delicious Dutch Apple Pie in it or a pile of pretty pine cones! Either way it will add charm and beauty to your kitchen along with the pretty linens!

Statement serving boards and cutting boards — My eyes popped out of my head when I saw this gorgeous olive wood serving board and this round marble and teak option. I’d love them propped together along the wall or shelf in a gorgeous kitchen or loaded down with Christmas treats as I’m pretty sure God intended!

Home Cook Kitchen Classics for less than $20

Pizza Stone –Pizza night just got better! I love using our pizza stone for making my homemade Garlic Chicken Pesto pizza! Ours isn’t fancy and has held up wonderfully and is now beautifully seasoned! It’s never cracked and I almost always put it right in the oven at room temperature.

Sleek Pepper and Salt Grinders — I’m totally crushing on these gorgeous salt and pepper grinders!  We have this set in our dining room and love them for grinding fresh pepper and salt on our meals! They are very durable and work super well!

Doughnut Pan–I’ve seen some amazing doughnut recipes this season and you need a doughnut pan to make them. This pan is so cheap it’s a no brainer! Pair with a baking mix or apron for an adorable baking gift idea!

Festive apron–I have a feeling this is the Christmas apron of Mrs. Claus! So cute and yes, I’m sure it makes your cooking taste better! If you’re looking for something festive and more masculine this buffalo check apron may just fit the bill!

Adorable Manatee Tea Infuser — This would be super cute as a stocking stuffer paired with a favorite loose leaf tea! (This blueberry tea would be my pick!)


So no need to brave the icy roads or aggressive shoppers at the mall, use these home cook gift ideas from Amazon to stay toasty and get great deals on gifts your loved ones will go crazy for!

If you like these gift ideas be sure to share them with whoever is shopping for you!! Subtleness is overrated when it comes to Christmas gifts!
