This is a featured picture showing two chefs, Christmas presents, and unique Christmas Gifts for cooks and foodies.

1. Instant Read Thermometer

In my kitchen, one of the most frequently employed tools is an instant-read thermometer. Whenever I prepare any type of meat, it becomes my trusted companion, ensuring that it attains the precise temperature required.

Thermoworks Thermapen One is a instant read thermometer.

Not just for meat

Not only are they great for temping meat, but they are also useful for checking other things as well. I use it to check the temperature of the water when I am feeding my sourdough Starter.

I also use it to check the temperature of frying oil when cooking Southern-style catfish. There are just so many uses for it, which is why I think it is one of the best kitchen gift ideas for Christmas.


I have tried a few brands over the years. A few have broken, and I still have one, but the one that I love the most is made by Thermoworks. They are a professional-grade company that is used by Chefs and home cooks alike.

What We Like

  • Super Fast: If you try a cheaper brand, you will find that it has a delay in the time that it displays the temperature. Thermapen is super fast at displaying the temp. This is important if you are standing over a blazing hot grill.
  • Professional: Thermoworks Thermapen is of professional quality and made to last.
  • Large Display: Thermapen has a nice large display that is easy to read.

What We Don’t Like

  • Splash Proof: While this may seem like a pro, I wish it was waterproof instead of splashproof.
  • Premium Price: The price is higher than many instant-read thermometers but this one is worth the price.

2. Orion Cooker

If you are looking for unique gifts for cooks, then this is a great gift for that special someone or foodie friend who likes to cook outdoors, the Orion cooker may be the perfect gift for them. The Orion Cooker has the remarkable ability to transform an ordinary cook into a culinary star, thanks to its user-friendly operation and the exceptional flavor it imparts to the food it prepares.

A Honest Review of The Orion Cooker.

The Orion cooker cooks with four basic methods. The first is indirect heat. The main principle it works on is convection cooking. The chamber is completely sealed to the outside. No air gets in or out. 

The sleek design and quality of the unit make this a no-brainer. The unit is made of 100% stainless steel so you never have to worry about it rusting. This thing should outlast me. Even the hardware is stainless steel.

Charcoal on the outside never comes in contact with the food

The charcoal is on the outside of the cooker and the chamber that the food is in is sealed. The indirect heat causes a convection current to swirl around the inside of the chamber as it builds up pressure. This indirect heat and convection cook the meat. It also seals in moisture and steam which helps the meat retain moisture and helps to cook as well.

What We Like

  • Ease of use: This is the easiest cooker/smoker you will find. 
  • Quality of construction
  • Set it and forget it

What we don’t like

  • Lack of Crust/bark: Since it holds moisture so well, the meat doesn’t form a good crust or bark
  • Limited compacity: The original size doesn’t hold a lot of meat if you were cooking for a group. They do offer a larger size unit you can buy. 
  • Clean up: The grease drips in the bottom but there is a pan to catch it. You have to let the unit cool down some to get it out and clean it. This is just a minor disadvantage as we really love the Orion Cooker. 

3. Bajio Sunglasses

You may be thinking, this item is weird to be on a list for unique gifts for cooks and foodies or home cooks but follow me for a minute. If you love grilling, smoking meats, or cooking over a campfire, sunglasses make an awesome gift for that person.

Not only are sunglasses useful when cooking outside but they are great to wear anytime you are outdoors to protect your eyes.

True to their roots

The Brand that I have come to love is Bajio. The company is based in Florida and according to its website, their company was founded in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, and is against the international profiteers that are trying to destroy the outdoors industry.

It’s worth noting that a vast majority of sunglass companies are under the ownership of a single corporate giant. Bajio, however, is challenging this status quo by charting its unique course. When it comes to quality, Bajio sunglasses can easily hold their own against renowned brands like Oakleys, Costas, or Smiths. 

Assembled in the USA

One distinctive feature of Bajio is that their glasses are meticulously assembled in the USA, a testament to their commitment to producing high-quality eyewear. They’re not ones to conform to industry norms set by others; instead, they’re blazing their trail.

These shades are tailor-made for various outdoor pursuits, whether it’s fishing in the coastal flats, deep-sea fishing, or simply unwinding while tending to your smoker.

What’s even better is that you have the option to choose between Polycarbonate and glass lenses, each delivering exceptional clarity. This flexibility ensures that you get the eyewear that perfectly suits your needs and preferences.

What we like:

  • Quality Construction
  • Clarity 
  • Stylish 

What we don’t like

  • Price: although the price point is similar to other brands in this category, I wish they were a little cheaper. I do understand though that you pay for what you get. 
  • Heavy: although the glass lenses are far superior in clarity and durability, they come with added weight. In my opinion, it is worth the extra weight for the quality of the lenses though. 

4. Aerogarden

The Aerogarden is a standout among my cherished kitchen gadgets. It’s hard to categorize it solely as a kitchen gadget because it’s so versatile. Mine is placed near my stove so it is convenient to get herbs from, but you can essentially put it anywhere you like. 

Aerogarden. This is a picture of the Aerogarden hydroponic indoor herb garden.

This innovative indoor herb garden is an exceptional gift for the passionate cook. In my opinion, it is one of the finest gifts for cooking enthusiasts so I had to include this in this list of unique gifts for cooks and foodies!

 If your relative or foodie friend loves cooking with fresh herbs and veggies, the AeroGarden may be the perfect gift for them. With the AeroGarden, they will be able to grow fresh herbs and veggies year-round right on their counter.

It is Automatic

The best part is it is pretty much automatic. It has a built-in LED light and the water circulates on a schedule so everything is programmed to take care of itself. The only thing you have to do is add water and more nutrients once every two weeks. The AeroGarden makes a perfect kitchen gift idea for anyone who loves to cook or grow their food!

  • Virtually fool-proof: Anyone can grow an abundance of herbs and veggies in the AeroGarden.
  • Convenient: Grow Herbs year-round right on your counter. You can have it close to your cooking area to have the freshest herbs possible for cooking.

What We Don’t Like:

  • Overcrowding: Because the plants grow so fast, they can get overcrowded quickly.
  • Maintenance: Although the AeroGarden is easy and foolproof to use, there is ongoing maintenance. When you have to replace the plants you have to clean the whole system.
  • Price: While they are convenient, easy, and foolproof, they come with a price. They start at $100.00 for the cheapest and go up from there.

5. Cook book

What great cook doesn’t love a new cookbook? Cookbooks are a reasonable idea and one of the best gifts you can give. 

There are so many great cookbook authors out there and I have created a great list of my favorite Southern cookbooks that I love. One of my favorite cookbooks is Magnolia Table by Joanna Gaines.

This would make an ideal addition to any collection of cookbooks for home chefs.

Southern Cook book called Magnolia Table by Joanna Gaines

If you have not heard of Joanna and Chip Gaines, you must be living under a rock. They became popular because of Joanna’s eye for detail in designing which led to a super popular TV show called Fixer Upper.

Joanna Gaines is deeply rooted in her faith and family which is why she loves to cook so much. According to her Bio, she believes in Home! This cookbook is filled with Southern comfort dishes that are sure to delight your family and give you that truly home-cooked meal they desire. 

Favorite Recipes:

  • Chicken Pot Pie
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Fried Chicken

6. New Set of Pots and Pans

Most cooks already have a set of pots and pans but maybe you are buying for a friend or relative who would love a nice quality set of pots and pans. Maybe your loved ones’ set of pots and pans has gotten old and needs replacing. 

All Clad Anodized cookware is on of the great gift ideas for moms on mothers day.

Having a nice set of pots and pans improves your cooking skills. It will make a good cook into a serious home cook. All-clad is a quality brand that has been around for a while now. Their products are known by home chefs and professionals alike.

What we like:

  • Easy to clean: The non-stick coating on these All-Clad pots and pans makes for easy cleanup after cooking.
  • Stacks and Stores Neatly: The way the pans are designed, they nest into each other which makes them stack and store neatly.
  • Versatile: These pans have a high working temperature which makes them able to go from the stovetop to the oven.

What we don’t like:

  • No pour spout: While we love the All-Clad pots and pans, we wish they had a pour spout on them to make pouring liquids, sauces, and gravies easier.
  • Can scratch: As with most non-stick pans, they tend to scratch if extra care is not taken.

7. Hot Sauce

Hot sauce makes a fantastic Christmas gift because it adds a spicy twist to the holiday season. It offers a unique and flavorful experience for those who enjoy culinary adventures. It’s a versatile and thoughtful present that can spice up holiday dishes and delight the taste buds.

Gator Hammock Hot Sauce is the ultimate Christmas gift for the hot sauce enthusiast in your life. Packed with flavor and a touch of heat, it’s the perfect blend of spicy and savory, making it an exceptional addition to any culinary journey.

This is one of my all-time favorite hot sauces and it ranks about a 6 on the heat scale from 1 to 10. Gator Hammock Gator Sauce has a very unique flavor that is vastly different from your average sauce. That is why I included it in my unique gifts for cooks and foodies.

This Christmas, give the gift of flavor that will leave them craving more and spicing up their holiday season in the most delicious way.

8. Knife Set

A knife set is a thoughtful and practical Christmas gift that keeps on giving. It’s not just a set of kitchen tools; it’s the key to culinary creativity. From effortlessly slicing through ingredients to crafting impressive dishes, a quality knife set enhances the joy of cooking.

Every time they use these precision blades, they will be reminded of your generosity and thoughtfulness. So, this Christmas, give the gift of precision, versatility, and culinary delight with a knife set that elevates every meal and fills their kitchen with festive cheer.

A good knife set will include a few types of knives: A chef’s knife is the first thing they will need in a knife set. This knife is for basic cutting and chopping.  While a top-notch traditional chef’s knife is essential, I also have a deep appreciation for the Nakiri, which is a Japanese knife. The Nakiri is great for making thin slices of vegetables. 

Another type of knife that is useful is a paring knife. A paring knife is great for peeling fruits and vegetables as it is small and fits in your hand well. The last knife I would suggest getting is a bread knife. 

One brand that I have come to love is Buck Knives The quality and construction are made to last and they are made in Japan, which is known for making quality knives.

9. Instant Pot

The Instant Pot is a multi-cooker that can replace several appliances such as a slow cooker, pressure cooker, rice cooker, and more. It is a popular kitchen appliance that has gained a lot of attention in recent years, and it can make a great Christmas gift for several reasons.

Instant Pot is a great gift idea for mom on Mother's Day.

One of the big draws to an Instant Pot is how quickly it cooks foods that would normally take a long time to cook or tougher cuts of meat, such as roast beef.

What we like:

  • Time-Saving: The Instant Pot replaces many of the kitchen appliances that you would normally use and cooks food a quicker time such as rice, beans, and tougher cuts of meat.
  • Versatility: The Instant Pot can cook a variety of dishes, from soups and stews to rice and pasta.
  • Convenience: The Instant Pot is easy to use and clean, which can be a big selling point for Moms who do not have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.

What we don’t like:

  • Learning Curve: While the Instant Pot is easy to use, it has a lot of buttons and it takes a little getting used to it.
  • Bulky: The Instant Pot is available in a range of sizes, the larger models can be bulky and take up a lot of counter space.

10. Bread Machine

If you have followed me for any time, you know that I am a big fan of bread machines. I got one for a gift some 13 or 14 years ago and loved it. Bread machines make great gift ideas but I think many times the bread recipe that comes with it is not very good so the machine doesn’t get used.

Cuisinart bread machine

I know this was the case for me when I first received mine, so I got to looking for a bread recipe that I liked. Once I found one, I tweaked it to my liking and I came up with this Homemade White Bread in the Bread Machine recipe.

Since my machine has recently ceased to function, I’ve decided that this will be the one I choose when I eventually acquire a replacement. From my thorough investigation, it seems like not only an excellent addition for my own needs but also a fantastic gift idea for Christmas!

What we like:

  • Stainless Steel: I love the fact that it is stainless steel and not plastic like many of the bread machines. I feel like this unit would be very durable.
  • Versatility: Not only can you bake bread, but you can cook other items as well. I love a versatile machine that serves dual purposes.
  • Easy to clean: This unit is easy to clean up with the stainless steel exterior and the non-stick bread pan.

What we don’t like:

  • Bulky: As with many kitchen appliances, they tend to be bulky and take up a lot of counter space.
  • Noise: Most bread machines do make a lot of noise but it is only when it is mixing.

11. Coffee

If your cherished coffee enthusiast is on your Christmas gift list, why not treat them to some exceptional coffee? When selecting coffee, I make it a point to seek out smaller brands that take pride in roasting their beans in small batches.

In my experience, this approach yields the finest-tasting coffee that stays fresh and maintains its quality for an extended period after opening. Furthermore, I appreciate companies that demonstrate a commitment to causes or values that align with my own.

A perfect example of such a coffee company that I admire is Fire Department Coffee. Their dedication to quality and community engagement makes them a top choice for the discerning coffee lover.

12. Coffee Frother

If your loved one is a coffee connoisseur, they are going to adore this handy kitchen gadget! For someone who enjoys frothy, creamy milk in their coffee, this gadget does the trick and makes it an ideal Christmas gift.

Zulay coffee frother and mixer.

Also, a frother can be used for other things as well such as blending protein powder or making DIY whipped cream. If they love egg omelets, the frother could be used to aerate the eggs for a fluffy omelet. It is the perfect addition to the kitchen. 

The versatility of this little kitchen gadget is the main reason that I included it in my list of 21 unique Christmas gifts for Cooks and Foodies.

13. Great Scrape Grill Cleaner

Are you worried about getting metal bristles in your food from cleaning your grill? Great Scrape has solved that issue for you! This tool called the Great Scrape is the ideal gift for your loved one who likes to grill or cook out. 

There have been a lot of news reports on social media about metal bristles getting into people’s food when they clean their grills with old-fashioned metal bristle brushes. I had the opportunity to review a great product that will take care of this issue for you. It is called the Great Scrape.

I use this every time I use my gas grill. The one I have, I have had since 2016 and it has held up great.

 The great scrape is a wooden board with a wooden handle. The basic of how this works is you get your grill very hot, and burn groves into the flat front of the wooden paddle. Then each time you are ready to use the grill, you slide the paddle up and down the grill grates and the groves clean it for you. It works great! One note, make sure you wear oven mitts when burning it in as the grill will be very hot. 

14. Kitchen Aid Stand mixer
