I always think decanters add special class to a bar cart, so here's your chance to snatch one up that's classy and fairly inexpensive. 4. Micro Green Kits - For apartment dwellers, nothing is more beautiful than dreaming of having a lush farm of your own. Well, this may not be a back forty, but this kit will help you grow some delicious fresh herbs and vegetables to use in your recipes. 5.

Kitchy Kitchen Cookbook - So of all the food bloggers I follow (trust me, it's A LOT), my favorite currently is probably Claire Thomas of Kitchy Kitchen. Claire has beautiful recipes that tantalize the tongue. I was psyched when her book came out this year, and you will be too once you buy it and peruse how amazing it is! 7. Kate Spade Owl Bottle Stopper Set - Who doesn't love Kate Spade? Her simple yet chic designs are perfecting for envying and thus, perfect for giving. I especially luvv these cute matching wine toppers. One for you and one for the bestie? 8. Rifle Paper Co. Recipe Box - You, I, we, NEED recipe boxes. It's so easy to look up something on Pinterest and pin it, yet never find it again. I'm a firm believer that a recipe box is something any cook should have. Maybe you'll be tempted to write more recipes when you can store them in an adorable box. 9. Dapper Animal Plates - I, Melinda Asewicz, have an addiction to all things with cute animals on them. Especially foxes. Fox salt shakers? Check. Fox wine topper? Check. Bear bottle opener? Check.A million kitchen towels with animals? Check. Seriously, if it has a cute animal on it, I'll probably buy it. This is perfect for your animal lover friends or family members. 10. Conversion Poster - This is a necessity. It may not be the most exciting gift, but man, the pragmatist in me just thinks it is so crucial for the kitchen. This poster contains EVERYTHING you could want to know about conversions in the kitchen, as well as a lot of other random kitchen facts a cook needs to know. This would be a life -saver in so many ways. I mean really, it could save a life when it tells you how to properly cook meat!
