10 Little Gifts to Buy on Amazon Prime and Give with a Cookbook
We strongly believe that cookbooks are basically one of the most perfect gifts you can give this time of year. They’re useful! You can get something super personal that speaks to someone’s interests! They’re inexpensive and don’t take up a ton of space! We could go on.
And you can even add little trinkets to make the gift just a bit more special. Go ahead and pick out your favorite cookbook (psst! Did you know that there’s a Kitchn cookbook? There is! And you can buy it on Amazon!) and then pair it one of these thoughtful little gifts. They’re all just $15 or less and eligable for Prime shipping!
The Best Cookbooks to Give for the Holidays
1. OXO Good Grips Wooden Spoon Set, $12 for three
No matter the recipe, a wooden spoon is almost always needed (read: a home cook can never have too many wooden spoons). Tie one (or three) up with some twine and your loved one will always be ready to mix things up.
Similarly, spatulas are also pretty important — especially good spatulas. And that’s where this GIR version comes in. You may have heard us wax poetic about it before, because it really is the best spatula on the market. It’s all one piece (so there’s no room for gunk to hide between the head and the handle) and it’s bendy, but not too bendy.
3. DII Buffalo Check Plaid Pot Holders, $7 for two
Hot stuff coming through! At least, there will be hot stuff once your loved one starts cooking her way through that cookbook you’re giving her. Add a pair of pot holders and she can get her dishes from the oven to table safely — and in style.
4. Now Designs Bakers Floursacks, $13 for three
Get this set of tea towels to pair with a baking book and then use baker’s twine to tie it all together.
5. Maldon Sea Salt Flakes Pinch Tin, $6.50 for three
Everyone can use some fancy salt in their lives. And these little tins couldn’t be cuter. Of course, you can also go the opposite way and go giant with this 3.3-pound bucket.
Here’s our little trick for this one: Get the set, keep the smaller one for yourself, and slip a cookbook into the larger one before you wrap it up. Bonus points if it’s a book that’s heavy on the casseroles.
This cute 5×7-inch cutting board comes in 12 different colors, so you can even coordinate it to match the book you’re pairing with it.
8. California Olive Ranch Extra Virgin Olive Oil, $15 for 16.9 ounces
This olive oil is one of our favorites and it’s super reasonably priced, which is good considering how easy it is to go through a bottle of EVOO.
9. Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Dish Soap, $11 for three 16-ounce bottles
Dish soap is like olive oil — bottles just somehow always seem empty! Break this pack up and you have three great gifts. Just pack one up with a cookbook in a gift bag with tissue paper. The basil scent is our favorite from Mrs. Meyers.
A spoon rest is key when it comes to keeping counters clean during a cooking project. Get this marble one for your favorite (slightly messy) home cook.
