2022 Kitchen Gift Guide: My Top 55 Favorite Kitchen Gifts!

Here's The Latest #167
November 12, 2022

Hello all!

We're hosting Christmas this year, which is a first for us. So I've kicked Christmas into gear a little sooner than normal, in preparation. My dad helped us string lights outside and Mom started the baking on their last visit, the trees are up (although the house is a mess), and I've bought a few gifts. We'll be enjoying a little Friendsgiving celebration here next weekend, and it's gonna look like Christmas already!

If you have people on your list who love to cook and bake, be sure to check out my Kitchen Gift Guide, filled to the brim with lots of kitchen-y gift ideas. From practical essentials to items that are simply fun, and with a wide range of prices, there's something for everyone!

I'm highlighting some favorite Thanksgiving food & drink in this newsletter...even though my house says it's Christmas! Enjoy!

Brenda :)
