38 Days Until Christmas - measuring up.

Gift idea: Earthenware measuring cups and spoons 

Makes a good gift for: Anyone who likes to cook or bake, or who likes nice design

Williams Sonoma is carrying a new line of “Bistro Francais” styled kitchen tools, and the measuring cups, measuring spoons and set of prep bowls caught my eye. All of these tools are made of earthenware, but are microwave and dishwasher safe. I know I have metal measuring spoons and measuring cups – but I think these would be great for a high-use kitchen because a lot of the handles on my metal measuring cups are bent from use – and I don’t think that would happen with these. They look sturdy and are easy on the eyes too! I think all three would make a nice set. If you look on the Williams Sonoma website, there are a few other pieces that match, as well as a dinnerware set with the matching blue stripe.

39 Days Until Christmas - spice it up a bit!

Gift idea: Spice sets – magnetic and otherwise 

This week's gift theme: gifts for the cook or foodie in your life.

Makes a good gift for: The foodie or cook in your life

I have had a crush on these spice-sets on Etsy for a long time, but having quite the spice collection myself, I have always wanted to give one of these sets as a gift.

Gneiss Spice on Etsy sells spice-sets, salt-sets and empty sets of bottles so you can make your own. The lids of the bottles are magnetic so you can stick them on your fridge, or you can buy a wall-plate from her to mount your spices right on the wall. I just think they are so cute, and its is such a good gift idea for anyone who likes to cook, or maybe someone who just went away to college or just moved out on their own. The sets range in price based on the size of the set.

Also, if you got a set of twelve spices, you could put one spice in each Twelve Days of Christmas Gift Box!
