Holiday Helper 4 – Top gifts to buy a home cook for Christmas

Please follow and like us:

I spent a pleasurable few hours walking around the shops the other day looking for things that could be great presents for home cooks this Christmas – and I found so many things that I really want for myself! Top on my list is the little machine that makes zucchini noodles (no pasta, only vegetable noodles). After that there’s some great spice blends, a few new teas (I’m a huge tea fan), a new dinner set, the beautiful jugs and matching bowls I found, and……just about everything else on this list!

If you’re not sure what to ask for when someone asks you what you want for Christmas, then you’re sure to find something listed here. If you’ve been given a Kris Kringle and don’t know what to get, maybe you’ll find something here (but doesn’t everyone want something with the Minions on it??).

If you find this post useful please share it on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ or anywhere else you want to share it. Check out the other holiday helper posts here as well.

Let’s get to it!
