If the chef in your life has just about every unique kitchen gadget out there, you may need to look beyond the practical and get creative. Check out these fun food-related gifts to round out this holiday season.
Dinosaur Taco Holders
Yes, even home cooks enjoy Taco Tuesday, and these unique little holders are perfect for those weekly celebrations! Not to mention, they are great fun for kids too.
These food and dishwasher safe holders are shaped like an ultrasaurus and a triceratops, so your favorite foodie can serve up a prehistoric dinner that the family will love.
Unicorn Mini Pancake Pan
Maybe unicorns are a little more up your friend’s alley. If so, he or she will love making cute mini pancakes with this grill pan. It has seven unique designs featuring unicorns and stars.
It’s also made from nonstick material and super easy to clean. So, if your friend claims to be a breakfast chef, pack this unique baking tray for her!
What on Earth Shark Attack Sushi Platter
Here’s a bizarre, yet hilarious gift that your food-loving friend will love. This perfectly practical shark dish has a soy sauce (the mouth) and a chopstick (the tail fin) holder.
The best part is that you can use it for other snacks too, such as chips and salsa, shrimp and cocktail sauce, or veggies and dip. Your friend will love whipping these out for parties or even on quiet evenings.
This fun cooking spoon is a fantastic addition to any kitchen tool collection. Your friend will love dipping this Loch Ness monster into a pot of stew and popping his head up.
Your recipient can serve soups and sauces with this 100% food-safe and BPA-free ladle.
Gracula Garlic Twist
There’s one vampire you can’t fend off with garlic, and that’s Count Gracula! This little garlic crusher is both quirky and useful. This allows your gourmet to crush cloves of garlic with ease.
Plus, this vamp keeps their hands free from that garlic scent. It’s dishwasher safe, BPA free, and perfect for any chef who loves spooky things all year round.
Fox Run Whale Butter Dish
There is no better way to keep your butter fresh and at room temperature than with this delicious whale butter dish. It is made of high-quality ceramic and has a form-fitting, whale-shaped lid.
It can hold up to two sandwiches, or your friend can keep cold cubes of cream cheese in it. They’ll love the easy-to-lift tail fin handle, which helps keep butterfat off their fingers.
It’s an excellent gift for a nautical-themed kitchen, beach house, or a foodie who loves the ocean.
Cat oven mitts
Whether your friend is a cat lover or just loves crazy gifts, these adorable cat paw oven mitts are perfect! They are cotton quilted for comfort and designed to withstand heat up to 480 degrees Fahrenheit.
Your recipient will be happy to use them for baking, serving up casseroles or even grilling outdoors. When not in use, they still look cute just hanging there. They’re also machine washable, so what’s not to love?
Nesting Dolls measuring cups
Matryoshka (aka “nesting”) dolls have an old-fashioned appeal that only some will understand and admire. These adorable measuring cups are stacked together for easy storage. The set comes with six dry measuring cups: 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4 and 1 cup.
These Russian dolls are made of sturdy, food-safe plastic. And if you like this design, be sure to check out the matching measuring spoons and salt and pepper shakers.
If your friend is rocking on the grill all summer, he or she will love this great set of guitar tongs. They are the ultimate party or tailgating tool for any rock and roll aficionado. We must warn you though – these often cause spontaneous (and epic) air guitar solos.
Finally, the gift everyone didn’t know they needed! This hilarious and quirky scratch spoon holder is suitable for all wooden, plastic or metal spoons.
This little guy helps a claw when your friend needs somewhere to rest that messy cooking spoon. There is also a cute witch spoon holder if that’s more their style.
Quirky kitchen gadgets make eating and cooking hella fun, but these tools are actually functional too! Make sure to pick up a few for yourself when you order a few for your foodies.
