For Making Breakfast
What better way to brighten up someone’s morning than gifting them breakfast- and coffee-making appliances that are both stylish and useful? HAY‘s newly launched electric Sowden Kettle comes in a rainbow array of color options to suit different tastes. The classic EM77 French Press will be endlessly appreciated by any fan of Danish design, while BALMUDA’s signature toaster will delight those who enjoy fresh-tasting morning pastries.
For beginners and serious home cooks alike, consider giving culinary supplies that will make prepping meals in the kitchen all the more fun. Caraway‘s Dutch Oven and Our Place‘s Always Pan — the latter of which conveniently comes with a steamer basket and a wooden spatula — are some of the chicest cookware you’ll find on the market. Premium pantry essentials, like Oracle‘s small-batch Greek extra virgin olive oil, will make your recipient feel extra special.
Offer someone an elevated dining experience at home with gifts of unique tableware, like this stackable Heller dinnerware set, or gold-plated forks, spoons and dinner knives. MENU‘s understated bottle spice grinders, an upgrade of your typical salt and pepper mills, will add the perfect finishing touch to any table.
Made for sipping, these gifts will impress anyone who loves having a fancy drink at home every once in a while. From a minimal stainless steel cocktail mixer, to sophisticated tumblers and coupe glasses, these elegant designs will certainly raise the bar.
