Ridiculously Luxe Foodie Christmas Gifts

Excuse me while I go drop half a month’s salary on cookware. No, but seriously, are you going to a Christmas wedding for your very best friend, or do you think you’re going to need to atone for something REALLY stupid this holiday season? Look no further! Or just trawl through some eye candy, baby.

KitchenAid Stand Mixer ($349): OK, yes, we begin with something that “I” already have! My sister just got one and it is a thing of beauty. It will also let you make otherwise-annoying recipes with ease: think croissants, brioche, meringues and jelly rolls. Hoorah!

Mauviel Fondue Pot ($981.64): Haha just kidding except NOT. I’m sorry, this is almost one. thousand. dollars. But it requires no explanation. Gruyere was made for this.



Le Creuset Round French Oven ($319.95): You could cook ANYTHING in this! Imagine: the perfect casserole or crumble, the best no-knead bread. It’s so beautiful, especially in this ~flame~ colour.

FLAME. From lecreuset.ca


Champagne Saucers ($100): We all need champagne saucers in our life–for birthdays, breakups, Christmas, weddings, engagements, showers, bachelor parties, movie nights, company picnics and New Year’s! There’s something about saucers that makes them a bit more chic than flutes. Very Gatsby.


How can this become my life?? From twirlingclare.blogspot.ca

Vitamix ($579): I have never used one, but they are apparently the most awesome of blenders. They turn kale into pulp in seconds. Want! True, they look like they belong in the year 1982, but they do their thing better than anything else. Cooks illustrated said so.

Do your thang, Vitamix!

Espresso Machine ($2,400): In an age of boring old Nespresso pods, this Rocket Espresso Evoluzione Cellini is so “authentic” haha. Whatever, but it’s got this retro-future gleam, right? Can you imagine walking into someone’s house and they’re all, “can I make you a capuccino,” pointing subtly to this? YES.


Again, SHINY

Vosges Travel the World through Chocolate Steamer Trunk ($1,045): Say whaaat? Eee this is the most amazing gift ever, no need to thank me. It comes with pretty much every chocolate ever made, and in a vintage steamer trunk.


Like whoa.

Think about how much your life could be enhanced with all these goodies, and how many people you could impress! Happy shopping!

    You can sometimes get REALLY good deals on Le Creuset cookware at stores like Marshall’s, Ross, TJ Maxx, etc (I don’t know if you have any of those in Canada? Worth a trip across the border if not). And the Vitamix is often at Costco for significantly less (and the KitchenAid, too). Now I’m going to pretend I never saw these things.
