A bamboo steamer to make homemade dumplings
Pair with a few dumpling recipes that include veggies of course and some fancy stainless steel chopsticks (and kid-friendly ones, too) if theyre new to this! And dont forget steamed are healthier than fried!
A quality pizza stone
Pair the pizza stone with a pizza-making recipe book and/or pizza cutter if theyre new to this! If they have kids, theyll really love turning their kitchen into a pizzeria!
A vegetable spiralizer
These spiralizers work best for firm, wide vegetables such as zucchini, yellow squash, sweet potato, and large carrots fun for adults and kids to create healthy noodles which can turn into all kinds of inventive and tasty dishes! For picky eaters or reluctant veggie tasters, offering foods in different shapes and textures can make them more appealing. I like the Gefu veggie spiralizer*, Ive bought more elaborate tools, but find I always go back to the basics for ease of use and cleaning. This kitchen gift will transform their meals.
A crepe pan
As a child, my mom made crepes with a crepe pan. I can still recall them melting in your mouth and how thin they were. My dad would joke they were so thin they were one-sided. Pair with a crepe mix, crepe recipe, and voil, theyll be in Paris for a Saturday morning!

Bring their own sense of humor or unique personality to the cookies that they make with a sassy saying or signature bitmoji that hilariously captures their essence. Or, for classy holiday cookies, get a stamp of their last name or initial that they can pass down for generations.
