sophisticated gift ideas for cooks

Whether we consider ourselves cooks or not, we all know someone who’s especially gifted in the kitchen. From the Greek relative who makes a scrumptious spanakopita, to the friend that can make something out of anything, give your fellow cook something special this year. These gift ideas for cooks (and bakers) vary from products to pantry staples.

MYST® GOLD Olive Oil

If you really want to impress the cook in your life, gift this incredibly luxurious olive oil. This gourmet extra virgin olive oil is infused with 24-karat edible golden flakes. MYST® GOLD contains 500 ml extra virgin olive oil, organically cultivated in the historic olive groves of Olympus.

MYST® GOLD features aromas of herbs, citrus fruits, and floral hints. The oil is produced by cold extraction at low temperatures under closely monitored hygienic conditions. No chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used at any stage of production.

Black Truffle and Chablis Mustard

This woody, intense, and rich truffle mustard is the perfect gift for the cook who loves going above and beyond. The recipes they whip up seem like items you’d find on a fine dining menu. We made this mustard into a vinaigrette and topped it on a farro and butternut squash baby kale salad.

Butternut Squash Seed Oil by Stony Brook Wholehearted

Speaking of butternut squash…this butternut squash seed oil is perfectly wintery and slightly sweet. If you want to give your fellow cook a pantry item that’s more exotic, but stay in budget, this oil is just what you need. We love drizzling butternut squash seed oil on our avocado toast! You could also buy the foodie in your life a subscription to a box from so they can receive more products like this on a monthly basis.

T-fal Baking Products

We’ve mentioned gift ideas for cooks, but we can’t forget about our loved ones who are stellar at baking desserts. We all have one—the friend that always has something baking in the oven. Make his or her life easier with these T-fal essentials. The T-fal Ingenio Non-Stick Rolling Pin has a convenient stand so the roller doesn’t roll away, but it also minimizes the mess and spread of bacteria. T-fal’s AirBake Large Natural Aluminum Cookie Sheet uses a double-layer technology to provide an overall enhanced baking performance, which means better browning, no burning, and decreased bake times! The T-fal Ingenio Spreader Spatula is essential for icing Christmas cookies. Lastly, make sure to scoop the right amount of cookie dough each time with the T-fal Trigger Ice Cream Scoop.
