Jerri Green lines up a great list of cheap culinary Christmas gifts for this year.
By Jerri Green
My husband and I try every year to limit how much we spend on each other. In an attempt to accomplish this goal last year, we tried to just give each other stocking stuffers. Well, needless to say we again failed to restrain ourselves as the pile of presents that didn’t fit in a stocking under our tree proved. Oh well, its not too late for this year. And if you are looking for some great gadgets that do fit in a stocking, here are a few of my favorite things:
Mini whisks – perfect for whipping up scrambled eggs on a slow Sunday morning
Collapsible measuring cups – wonderful space savers
Magnetic measuring spoons – never loose that 1/4 tsp spoon in the back of a drawer again
Silicone muffin cups – slide off your blueberry or apple spice muffs with ease
Grapefruit spoons – the only way to eat a ruby red
Spaghetti tongs – if you eat pasta you have to have these
Working mat – great for big batches of cookies or rolling our dough for calzones
Zester – lemon, lime, orange, garlic, nutmeg…the list goes on
Bamboo utensils – eco-friendly and durable, win – win
Reusable bags – take them with you to the store or farmers market to get all you goodies
Clip-on spoon rests – keeps your utensils safe and your counters clean, what’s not to love?
Butter boy – the best corn cob related invention ever
Toast tongs – no electrocution scare here
So go get your own or fill the stocking of your favorite foodie. Got more ideas for great gadget gifts? Let me know below. I’ll pass your suggestions on to the hubs for my stocking this year!
