Inspiration board of cool Valentine's Day gifts for cooks


Valentine’s Day is upon us, and perhaps you’ve started thinking about what you’ll get your sweetheart. Well, so have we! If your valentine loves to cook, we have a few festive ideas, all in reds and pinks! Take a look at our inspiration board of great Valentine’s gift ideas for the cook in your life.


Anyone who loves to cook and bake would go crazy for the famed KitchenAid Stand Mixer. If there’s one small appliance with a cult following, it’s this one. It comes in just about every color you can imagine (we like the vibrant Raspberry Ice hue above), including copper and stainless steel.

If the KitchenAid Stand Mixer is too high-tech for your culinary-loving valentine, may we suggest a compact hand mixer? The KitchenAid 5-Speed Hand Mixer is a versatile tool that makes whipping together a batch of brownies or cookies simple and quick. It’s a must for even a novice cook.

Looking to indulge your valentine’s caffeine addiction? The DeLonghi kMix Espresso Maker gets 5 stars from our customers and comes in fun, vibrant shades.


For the frequent traveler or camp scout, a French press like the BonJour 8-Cup Ami-Matin can’t be beat. Easy to clean, easy to transport, and easy to brew, a French press is a must in the morning.

For a recent college graduate or aspiring foodie, a 13-Piece Cookware Set (in what else? Red!) can last them for years to come and help them tackle almost any recipe in the kitchen.

Did we say cook? We meant to say “watches you cook while drinking a glass of Merlot.” The Ozeri Nouveau II Electric Wine Opener is one nifty kitchen gadget that will get a lot of use in some households.


Multiuse items are a godsend in a busy kitchen, which is why we love a versatile covered baking dish, like the Casseroval 4 1/4 Quart Covered Casserole in Red. It works for all kinds of dishes, plus it’s pretty enough to serve at your fanciest dinner party.

Whether you’re tossing vegetables in olive oil, scraping the cookie batter out of a mixing bowl, or stirring a pot of soup on the stove top, a good Spoonula Set can do it all.

Aside from being a fun way to bring color into the kitchen, a tea kettle is sure to come in handy. We love this classic KitchenAid Tea Kettle in Red.
