60 Best Gifts for Home Cooks in 2022


Old World Christmas/Uncommon Goods

For those who aren’t well-versed in the kitchen, knowing what to pick up to start your journey as a new at-home chef can be difficult. While mixing bowls and measuring cups are kitchen items that every beginner should have, if you or someone you know is looking to speed up the journey to becoming the best cook in the family, there are a few things that need to make the cut. Though every item won’t be a gift under $30, cooking gifts are worth the investment because — if chosen correctly — they can last close to a lifetime.

Whether you’re looking for the perfect gifts for your mother-in-law or need a few gift ideas for coworkers, finding the right gifts for the home cook can actually be easier than you think. From kitchen-themed ornaments to hang from the Christmas tree to specialty hot sauces and peppers guaranteed to spice up their new creations, there’s really no wrong way to go when it comes to gifting home cooks.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have a little guide of what to look for when shopping and luckily, we’ve done all the hard work for you. And if you happen to be the home cook in your group of friends or the go-to chef in your family, you can always send this to them for inspiration when shopping for you this year.
