No, really…since I know my husband reads my blog, I thought I’d put together a list of practical items I’d like this year! So honey, here ya go. It’s not too late to order any of these things and get them to me in time for Christmas!

A List of Gift Ideas Foodies will Love this Christmas

Did you know that a recent study by Wakefield for Kenmore claims 79% of Americans prefer practical gifts over novelty items at Christmas? Gifts like appliances and chainsaws? You can count me in with the 79% because I always ask for something practical for Christmas. I really appreciate useful gifts, and with that in mind – I have compiled my own wish list that contains both practical, yet pretty items! I haven’t written a list for myself in years and this was kind of fun.

Without further ado, here is my Foodie Christmas Wish List ~

immersion blender

Immersion Hand Blenderblank – This little appliance is something I’ve been wanting for a long time. A lot of bloggers rave about how awesome immersion blenders are and I’m ready for my own.  I know it would come in really handy for making my roasted tomato sauce and other cream soups!

Amazon sells it for $27.99 with free 2 day shipping for Prime members. You can order it here.

le creuset butter crock

Le Creuset Stoneware Butter Crockblank – How beautiful is this butter crock? Admittedly, I do have a butter crock that I use already – because who can stand hard butter when you need to butter bread? My old butter crock will not fit the decor in the Passive House, though, so I want a new one… and I love Le Creuset!

Amazon sells it for $34.95 with free 2 day shipping for Prime members. You can order it here.

le creuset salt pig

Le Creuset Stoneware Salt Crockblank – While I’m drooling over the Le Creuset, I’ll admit that I want this salt pig, too. My good friend Robin has a different salt pig on her stove that I love, and that’s where I got the idea. This is the one for me!

And don’t you know, Amazon has this, too, for $31.95 with free shipping for Prime. Order here.

kuhn rikon pressure cooker

Kuhn Rikon Pressure Cooker 7.4-Quartblank – I have been eyeing this Kuhn Rikon Pressure Cooker for several years. Do you have a pressure cooker? I recently starting using an old one that I cook beans in and I love it {except the pressure cooker just quit pressurizing!!!}. Another good friend of mine has this brand and says it’s wonderful. It’s a little pricey, so I’d love to hear if any of you have it and what you think!

This bad boy costs $227.95 on Amazon, and if you want to send it to me, go ahead and order it here. 🙂

American's Test Kitchen Pressure Cooker Perfection

Pressure Cooker Perfection: 100 Foolproof Recipes that will Change the Way You Cookblank – And since all I know how to cook in a pressure cooker is beans, I think I’ll need a cookbook. I love Amercia’s Test Kitchen cook books. They are just fun to read and the recipes are always great.

This book costs $11.49 on Kindle and $14.92 paperback. You can order it here.

rachel ray lasagna pan

Rachael Ray Stoneware 9″ x 13″ Rectangular Lasagna Lover Pan, Whiteblank – I also love these Rachel Ray stoneware pans. Living in the barn has been hard on my stoneware and I busted both of my 9×13 Pampered Chef stones this fall. GAH!! I would love to try out this one and see how it compares to my beloved Pampered Chef.

This pan costs $49.95 on Amazon – so I might prefer Pampered Chef, but I do love the look of this white stone {as long as there’s no lead in that paint.} Anyone know?

tattler canning lids

Tattler Reusable Regular Canning Lids and Rubber Rings, BPA Free, Dishwasher Safe (Pack of 12)blank – These Tattler lids make a great, practical gift for the canning enthusisiat. BPA free AND reusable – these are awesome. I have 2 packs but could always use more as I can way more than 24 jars of food every fall.

They are $7.80 for a 12-pack on Amazon.

Kenmore Toaster OvenKenmore Convection Toaster Oven – I have been saying for years that I want to get rid of my microwave oven. And guess what? When we moved into the barn, I did it. I have successfully NOT used a microwave oven since July. It’s really awesome. But a toaster oven would sure come in handy for heating up leftovers and a few other things.

This Kenmore Elite Convection Toaster Oven is $111.99 with free shipping on Kenmore’s website and guess what? They just sent me one! Many thanks to Kenmore for the awesome toaster oven. I can’t wait to try it out. You can order YOURSELF one here.

And there you have it – a few useful, yet pretty, kitchen items on my wish list this year.

What’s on your Wish List? Do you also prefer practical over novelty? I’d love to hear!

    Merry Christmas. I have looked at the items above & I think you’d really love the butter crock & the salt crock since you live in Iowa. I don’t think the butter crock would be appropriate for people in the south though, as I have often wondered if the butter would melt if left out and fall into the water. You wouldn’t have to wonder about any ‘bad glazes’ in any food dishes anymore. They could not sell it if there were today. That ‘pressure’ cookbook is a bargain. I love using my pressure cooker for roasts and other things of that sort. I’d think twice about those ‘tattler’ lids. One hole and you’d be in trouble, I’d think. Like you said, kinda ‘pricy’. The blender would be so much of a ‘nicer cleanup’ than a food processor, if you need it. But I have to say, I cannot do without a food processor. The convection toaster oven sounds like a good price. I have never used one but have often wondered about one.
    God bless, and best wishes over the holidays. I enjoy your blogs.

      Merry Christmas, to you too, Brenda! I’ve been using the tattler lids for 2 years now and while I have noticed they don’t seal up quite as well as regular lids, I do like them. I have 1 or 2 of the 14 I have fail to seal. I don’t consider that a big problem, though. I hope you’re right about now worrying about bad glaze. 🙂
