It’s winding down, Christmas is nearly here. When it comes to the difficult to shop for, there’s always a need for kitchen gadgets because whether they’re a chef or just a foodie, there’s a gadget that they’re going to want or need. Each year more inventions come forth, some just for hilarity’s sake, and some are legit a great kitchen tool. Regardless, this is going your stocking stuffer, Secret Santa, gift exchange party, unable-to-please-Mother-In-Law gift list.

1. Refrigerator Storage Mini Bins

These clip on drawers help everyone stay organized and happy with this often cluttered and frustrating part of the home. ¬†Fridge organization!? That’s a real thing? Woohoo!

2. Dishwasher Sign

No longer accidentally putting that coffee mug upside down on the top rack, only to have it drip down onto clean dishes because oops! you didn’t realize it was a clean load of dishes. So basically, saving relationships everywhere.


3. Butter Crock

Keep your butter room temperate and fresh with a butter crock! Simply fill the “lid” of the crock with softened butter and the bottom bowl with fresh water. The water seals the butter’s surface without absorbing, making fresh toast-worthy butter every single day.


4. 8 in 1 Kitchen Tool

It’s literally everything you could ever need. Also, don’t take me saying “literally” too literally. But this is a pretty amazing tool. Between grading, measuring, funneling, mashing, separating and all the “ings” this will make anyone with a kitchen, a happy camper. Oh, and it can be a vase too!


5. Multi Tier Oven Rack

So you’ve got a turkey, a pie, a cassarole or two and only one oven. Hold your “uggghhhhs”, there’s a solution here!! Holiday dinners never went so smoothly.


6. Air Fryer

You’ve probably heard all the buzz about air fryers lately, and it’s for good reason – it simply “fries” your food with circulated air. No more deep frying in high fat oils.


7. Avocado Slicer

It may seem like a small little something, but it can make a world of difference for the avocado lover. Plus, it makes food much more #foodgram worthy when it comes out perfectly every time.


8. Electric Spiralizer

Spiralizers hit mainstream a couple years back with a wave of people giving up carbs and swapping them for veggies (I might be one of them). While spiralizing is a pretty easy thing to do by hand, it can be time consuming when making a large batch. This electric one will definitely come in handy for the busy, but health conscious on your list.


9. Retro Breakfast Station

Know someone who’s always hustling out the door in the morning? Simply their life, with this retro kitchen appliance. It can brew coffee, toast your bagel, and cook a freshly cracked egg all in one!


10. Customizable Cookie Stamp

This is a year-long tool that helps the baker stay seasonal and personalized with every batch. Mine would all be stamped with instructions: ¬†“only eat one”


11. Bag Sealer

How many drawer space you’re going to free up when you toss all those chip clips and elastics in exchange for this little gadget. Simply heat sealing the bags back together ensures fresh snacks inside, every time. This also helps when you are trying to limit yourself from eating an entire bag of chips because “you don’t want to waste food”.


12. Master Pan

Truly, the master of them all…with the ability to cook all different kids of foods on one pan, with a divider between each section. It also comes with the added bonus of no kids whining saying “ew that foods touching the other food!”.
