Best Gift For Cook Olive Tree

Our Beautiful Olive Tree Gift

We think of our gift-givers every time we look at the Arbequina Olive Tree we received as a gift a couple of years ago! We have transplanted it into a gorgeous pot and it lives outside on our deck in full sun. It has flourished with very little maintenance. No olives yet on ours (we procrastinated a bit in transplanting it) but the beautiful shape and delicate leaves make us feel like we’re in Tuscany. This tree will produce edible olives and comes with fertilizer and planting guide. May not ship to all states. Find it at Amazon…

Best Tea Gift

Tea By Mood is Our Favorite Gift For The Tea Lover

The Numi “Tea By Mood” Gift Set makes such a great gift. We love the idea of matching a flavor to your mood – there’s focus, balance, energize, reflect, refresh, invigorate, inspire and sleep. Numi is known for its fair trade certified, organic and non gmo full-leafed teas blended with real fruits, flowers and spices. This gift set of 40 tea bags in 8 different flavors comes in a fun octagonal gift box. It’s such a delicious and thoughtful gift that we gave one to ourselves! Wait until you try Numi’s Jasmine Green – it’s our new favorite. Find it at Amazon…

Best Coffee Grinder Gift

Our Favorite Coffee Grinder

You’re going to love this grinder, so you might as well buy one as a gift and one for yourself. The JavaPresse Manual Coffee Grinder uses ceramic combo burrs that last 5 times longer than stainless steel blades. It gives you more than 18 settings to fine-tune the coarseness you desire. For a french press, about a minute of grinding will make enough grounds for 2-3 cups of coffee. No cord or batteries means you can use it anywhere to get amazing fresh ground coffee. No noise means the household can sleep while you’re grinding. The small size means you can take it with you to work or traveling. “Editor’s Choice” Find it at Amazon…

Gift For Coffee Lover

Our New Favorite French Press

After breaking the glass beaker from our Bodum French Press, we found the sleek, well-designed 34 ounce Coffee Gator French Press. This press makes great tasting coffee – and we’re picky. It’s made of double wall vacuum layered surgical-grade 304 stainless steel, so our coffee stays hot longer (about an hour longer than glass). It’s easy to use, easy to clean, BPA free, and since there is no glass or plastic it means there’s nothing to break! We think it looks cool on our counter and works equally well camping or out on the boat. Bonus: travel coffee canister included. Find it at Amazon.com…

Great Gift For Wine Lover

Over 1,000 Bottles Later…

The Coutale Prestige is the corkscrew we can’t live without (literally)! After 7 years and over 1,000 bottles of wine it’s still great! We’ve tried other brands, but they just don’t compare. The double lever makes it super easy to use without all the fuss of others. We have basic black, but for a memorable gift we’d recommend the handsome rosewood inlay. Find it at Amazon…

Best Pasta Pot

The Best Pasta Pot

We love this pasta pot! Forget heavy, forget sticking pasta, forget the colander too. The Bialetti Pasta Pot has changed all that. It’s just the right size for cooking a box of pasta, its oval shape allows us to put in a handful of spaghetti without having to break it or stand it up and stir until it softens. The lid locks in with a quick turn and has holes for straining, so no need for a colander. We’ve also used the pot to boil potatoes and cook other vegetables. Nothing sticks, so clean-up is easy. Comes in a variety of colors. Find it at Amazon…

Best Pizza Peel

The Best Pizza Peel

The Kitchen Supply Aluminum Pizza Peel is our favorite way to check and serve our homemade pizza. Wooden peels are nice, but they can splinter, crack and sometimes don’t slide under the crust easily. This has a nice long handle to keep a safe distance from the heat (or even use two hands if need be). We wished it had a hole in the handle for hanging, so we drilled one- now it’s perfect. A great gift for the pizza lover. Find it at Amazon…
