Awesome Christmas Gifts that are Affordable - Foodies, Chef, Griller, Wino Influence, Plus Some Other Ideas
We've all seen those lists of great gifts, many of which have items with $100+ price tags. My list features gifts you can actually afford to buy, many with a food or wine influence, and some stocking stuffers. I hope this lists helps take some wondering out of shopping. I'm a HUGE fan of Amazon.com - specifically Prime. Most of these items can be found there. Happy Shopping! There are only a few $100+ items. Scroll towards the bottom for NON-FOOD gifts. I'll continue adding to the list...
Professional Whipped Cream Dispenser - My husband gave me this last year and let me tell you - I was blown away! This thing is SO incredibly cool! If you've ever been in the kitchen with someone making fresh whipped cream, and it doesn't turn out perfect, you know to run. This takes all the stress out. I love that you can flavor the whipped cream & that it stays fresh and fluffy for several days in the fridge. You can also make all kinds of specialty French sauces (like Béchamel, etc.) Be sure to get a set of N02 Chargers!
Cut Resistant Gloves - We use these when using our Oxo Mandolin Chef's Set, after some near major hand cuts. Thin enough for dexterity, thick enough for protection. The mandolin is on the pricer side, but a quality item that lasts. We've tried cheaper versions and they end up getting donated. Buy right the first time.
Ninja Mega Kitchen - Life Changing. We use this at least once a day, if not more. Incredible smoothies, pulls chicken, incredible guacamole, fresh dressing, grates cheese. I LOVE this thing and could not live without it in my kitchen. If you belong to Costco - you can find a much better deal on this, in store ; ) You will never regret this purchase.
Non Food Items:
Christmas Humor Shirts - You might be on this site for a while, just a warning. I'm currently wearing this shirt....
J.Hilburn Gift Card - The perfect gift for any many who's ever had a hard time finding clothes to fit his body or style preferences. Custom shirts, Made-To-Measure suits, trousers, outerwear, sport coats, formal wear and a full line of Ready-To-Wear. You guessed it, I'm a J.Hilburn Stylist! I love what I do!
Trapp Candles: Bob's Flower Shoppe & WhiteFir - Now, these are pricy for candles, but there are NO other candles I've ever smelled that come close. Worth every, single, dollar. Your gift recipient will thank you. Bob's smells like a real florist shop, nothing artificial. White Fir - this candle sells out every year due to it's popularity. This is a hometown favorite of mine ; )
Mist Diffuser - There are many options available. I received this as a gift 2 years ago and was curious. Little did I know how much I would love it! Great alternative to candles and for use with natural use of essential oils. I'm a HUGE fan of essential oils. If you are just starting with essential oils, you need this gift!
