Did you wait until the last minute to buy Christmas gifts? We feel your pain. It seems like just yesterday was the first day of summer, and then BAM!, here we are in December. The good news is that it’s not too late to grab a great gift for that special person in your life. Here’s a list of kitchen gadgets almost anyone will love.

Best Kitchen Gadgets for Christmas 2016

The Coolest Cutting Board of All Time! Make dinner prep remarkably easy. This cutting board acts as a prep station, food organizer, and tool holder all-in-one. The cutting boards are made by a German company, but shipping is free to the US until December 18th. These make the perfect gift for anyone who cooks frequently. Trust us, your mom will love it!

Foodie Dice. We like the Foodie Dice as the perfect mixture between practical and gag gift. If you’ve ever had this conversation, you’ll know exactly what we mean:

Me: What’s for dinner?

Wife: I don’t know. What do you feel like?

Me: I don’t know, what do you feel like?

Wife. I dunno.

Sound familiar? Just roll the dice and let fate decide what’s for dinner. No more 20-minute discussions that lead to nowhere! Find more info here.

No-Fuss Clip-On Strainer. Finally! The solution to bulky strainers. This gadget clips on the side of any size pot or pan and is small enough that it won’t engulf half of your dishwasher rack like a traditional strainer. We love it!

A Simple Apple Slicer. This gift truly has no age limit! A few years back a friend of mine said, “You have to purchase an apple slicer! It will make lunch packing and snack prepping much easier.” Oh Boy, was she right!

My kids love the autonomy they feel when “slicing” their own apple. And, let’s face it, what parent doesn’t like serving an easy, no-hassle healthy snack?

You can pick one up on Amazon or find it in your local WalMart, Target, or any kitchen store. They retail between $9.99 and $20, depending on the style and quality. A woven basket filled with local apples and an apple slicer would make a fun, healthy Christmas gift.

Happy Holidays to You and Yours!
