I’m pretty sure I say the same thing every year around this time, but where did the year go? It feels like it was only a few weeks ago that I rang in 2016, but there’s no denying the fact that the holidays are right around the corner. Personally, I love the holidays and all they entail–especially the part where I get to choose gifts for my loved ones that I know will put smiles on their faces on Christmas morning. This year I have a few people to shop for who enjoy spending their spare time in the kitchen, so am looking no further than KitchenAid to find them gifts that will be sure to please.

Give the gift of a KitchenAid 4-Slice Toasterka-toaster

Maybe it’s the 1950’s aesthetic, or perhaps the bold red colour, but I love this KitchenAid 4-slice toaster. It features extra-wide and extra-long slots so can easily accommodate everything from bagels to artisan breads of varying shapes and sizes. It also features seven shade settings including Bagel, Defrost, Reheat, and Keep Warm so no matter what you’re looking to toast, it has you covered. Perhaps its best feature though is its cord storage are under the base, which keeps the cord neatly out of sight when not in use.

This 3.5 cup mini food processor is perfect for any size kitchen and makes prepping ingredients an absolute breeze. Whether you need to chop vegetables, puree sauces, or crush nuts, you can do so with its two speeds or pulse settings with the touch of a button. The 3.5 cup bowl itself features a lid, handle, and pour spout, so transferring ingredients can be done with little mess, and is dishwasher safe, which makes for easy clean up.



Put The KitchenAid All-in-1 Multi Cooker Under The Treeka-multi-cooker

The KitchenAid All-in-1 Multi Cooker is great for amateur and not-so-amateur cooks alike. With over 10 cooking settings, you can slow cook, simmer, boil, sauté, or sear all in one pot, ultimately eliminating the need for a large oven and multiple pots or appliances. It also features four step-by-step assisted cooking modes so even if you’re the kind of cook who fails at boiling an egg, you can quickly master yogurt, soup, risotto, and rice preparation. Add to that its Evenheat technology, and this multi cooker will help anyone deliver consistently perfect culinary masterpieces every time.



ka-bakewareChristmas Cookies Are Easy With The KitchenAid Professional Bakeware Set

For the bakers on your list, this 5-piece KitchenAid bakeware set is a must have. Included in the set is a loaf, muffin, jelly roll, square cake, and rectangle cake pan, each of which is made from professional-grade aluminized steel, which is very resilient and provides even heating for fantastic results, while the ceramic reinforced nonstick coating makes clean up a breeze.

A Christmas Must-have: The KitchenAid Stand Mixerka-artisan

Last but not least is of course the KitchenAid Stand Mixer. While they come in a variety of colours, sizes and wattages, I am seriously coveting this 4.73-litre, 325 watt metallic chrome mixer. First off, the chrome colour of the mixer has a timeless elegance about it and will fit into any kitchen décor for years to come. Outside of that though, it features 10 speeds that let you whip, mix, and knead ingredients with ease, and a massive stainless steel mixing bowl that is large enough to mix dough for nine dozen cookies or seven pounds of mashed potatoes in a single batch. Everyone I know who has a KitchenAid stand mixer swears by it, so it is sure to delight the cook on your Christmas list.

These five gift ideas are only the tip of the KitchenAid product iceberg, but are great ideas for anyone on your list who enjoys spending time in the kitchen. For the full range of KitchenAid products available on, click here.
