Great Kitchen Gifts

Guest Author - Paula Laurita

Looking for something useful to give someone for their first kitchen? These are sure to be appreciated.

Spice Stack
Finally, a spece rack that stores the spices in the bottles they come in, allows you to get to them easily, and takes up little space. What makes the Spice Stack different is the drop-down drawers that allows you to actually see the spice you want. This is now on my short list of house warming and wedding presents.

CakeVase
Let's face it, not all of us are naturals at cake decorating or creating fantasy centerpieces. The CakeVase from Kathleen's Cakes comes to the rescue for the decorating challenged among us. It's brillantly simple. Using inexpensive flowers you place the CakeVase on and into the top of a cake. Add the flowers and greenery and you are ready to go! The CakeVase is made out of food grade plastic and can be washed on the top rack of the dishwasher. This is perfect for a small kitchen. You don't need to store a drawer full of cake decorating equipment or find room to store a vase. Instead, the cake becomes the centerpiece. Want to make this house warming present even better? Bring it on a cake!

Skillet Rack From Swedish Designs
Just because a kitchen is small doesn't mean that it can't have style. Many newly weds receive quality cookware that is stored stacked together in a cabinet where it is difficult to reach them or they are scratched. These sleek racks are made from solid light maple and beech hardwoods in Pennsylvania and Indiana. The clean curves don't clash with other styles, including my Italian-country kitchen.

Klip Kitchen TimerI used to carry around my square timer in my pocket or from room to room with me when I did laundry or went outside. The time would often get turned off or have minutes added to it when I bumped the time. It wasn't a fault of the timer's design, it wasn't meant to be carried in my pocket. Now, I have the Kitchen Klip. It is designed to clip onto the outside of my pocket or on a belt. It also comes with a laynard to wear the Klip around your neck. It also has a keypad lock. If you don't want to wear the timer it has a built in magnet to put on the refrigerator or oven. It also comes with a tabletop stand. I really like that it has a 24 hour timer. In addition the Klip has a stopwatch and clock. Add this great timer to a gift basket!
