This gift guide for the young chef has so many fun and quirky gift ideas that are still practical and a great way to get kids involved in the kitchen. Or perhaps you have a kid you can't get OUT of the kitchen? Either way these gifts are perfect. I've kept them all under $20.oo and many I have personally had in my kitchen when my kids were younger. Okay, truth be told... I still have some. Or want some (hello, that ladle!).
I want to be clear (if you read my last post about commercialism in Christmas) that I don't think buying gifts is necessary. However, for some, gift-giving is their love language. It means something special and they want to be very personal and thoughtful when they gift others. For those people, I want to give you a means to give gifts that are perfect for the person you are thinking of. To say that Christmas should be void of gift-giving is rather impractical. Instead, let's return gift-giving to something meaningful and thoughtful. Onward!
