Kitchen Gift Basket Ideas

Kitchen Gift Basket IdeasKitchen Gift Basket Ideas can be fairly easy to come up with if you know the likes and dislikes of the gift recipient.  There is nothing worse than giving someone a gift that eventually ends up in some dark corner collecting dust or in the trash. They don’t want to hurt your feelings but it really isn’t something they can use. So why not put a little time and effort into it to find and give the best kitchen gifts that you know would be loved and appreciated? Would you not like the same thing if it were you getting the gift?

Everyone likes to eat. Many like to cook as well. Newlyweds need lots of supplies and utensils. Birthday people enjoy those delicacies that are their favorites. Healthy Cooks like things that make their cooking healthier and tastier. Coffee Lovers like all things coffee. Chocolate lovers like… well you get the point.

Containers For Kitchen Gift Basket Ideas

In order to create your own Kitchen gift basket you need something to put the assorted items in. That can be anything from wicker baskets to ceramic baskets or bowls or any other container that the recipient will find useful as part of the gift. Most people could use a decorative container for various purposes after removing the gift they get in it. These are just some ideas. We are sure that you will have plenty of your own.

One important rule of thumb. Be sure to get a container that is large enough for what you want to put in it. Too large is better than too small. You can always add a layer of paper stuffing in the bottom if it is too deep. Then cover the stuffing with a pretty dish towel or other nice cloth and arrange in a decorative manner.

In addition to being the base of your gift, these baskets make great all purpose containers that can be used for organizing and storage. One of them would be very handy for a picnic as well.

Larger bowls and  baskets are great for assembling gadgets and kitchen utensils  that you may be planning to give.  They are also great gifts to receive on their own. Some of these can get expensive though so if the utensils you plan to put in them are also costly you might want to choose some less expensive containers like the ones on this page.

Heart Healthy Gift Basket Ideas

Herbs spices and healthy oils like olive oil can be the basis of a heart healthy gift basket. You might want to include a bottle of olive oil, a sprayer, some gourmet vinegars, some spices and healthy snacks like nuts.

Olive Oil Sprayers Make Great Gifts

Using an olive oil sprayer like one of these below can have many benefits. When you use an olive oil sprayer, you will save money, time, and effort in your kitchen, olive oil is a healthy oil to use.  By giving one of these refillable sprayers you are giving a way to use the best oil without any chemical propellant.  They make a great choice to include in your basket for the healthy cook. It is perfect for grilling, roasting, sauteing, non-stick cooking and basting without brushes. I have the Misto Olive Oil Sprayer and love using it instead of a nonstick spray full of chemicals. Instead of butter on my toast I spray a little olive oil on it and it toasts a pretty brown. It gives my toast extra flavor. Sometimes I will add a little garlic powder to it as well. Yum, Yum!

Fresh Herbs From The Window Sill

Most heart healthy cooks also like to use fresh herbs when they are available. What better way to stock a heart healthy gift basket than to introduce growing their own herbs on the window sill. The scissors are very handy for chopping herbs. The packets of seed are good to stuff into your basket along with a great guide for growing their own herbs. If they don’t have a window sill large enough you might even consider fixing some hanging window plant shelves for them.

Utensil Sets For Kitchen Gift Baskets

use cannister for utensilsOf course, we all need kitchen tools and utensils. We found some great sets to make life a little easier for your giftee. We especially like the tool sets that have their own container or holder. The kitchen drawer is too cluttered when you have to keep them in there. I personally use a kitchen canister to keep mine handy on the countertop.

When choosing a good utensil set, bear in mind the type of cookware that the recipient has. If stainless steel, then the stainless steel sets would be perfect. However, if they have cookware that utilizes non-stick coating then you should choose either nylon, wood, or silicone to prevent scratches.
