Cool Kitchen Gifts for Mother's Day

Today's post is part of the #HolidayHQ Blog Hop. See the links below for more posts from the best party and entertaining experts, and join us tonight at 8pm EST on Twitter for our #HolidayHQ chat.


If Mom is a culinaire, why not surprise her with a gift that's both practical and a bit unique? I found these eight trendy items last month at the International Housewares Association show. Best in show, for sure!

Nambé Monroe Salt And Pepper Set contemporary serveware

Nambé Monroe Salt And Pepper Set - $150.00


This salt and pepper set nestles together with
complementary lines and contrasting materials —
a match made in culinary heaven.

Pressed Glass Goblet traditional glassware

Rosanna, Inc. Pressed Glass Goblet - $42.00, set of 4


Doesn't this remind you of Depression glass? These beautiful pieces would even make lovely votive holders.

Curtis Stone Workbench Cutting Board - $299.99

This sturdy chopping block features recessed
areas for mise en place and waste disposal for
a handy all-in-one cook station.

Raj Chef Knife eclectic knives and chopping boards

Raj Chef Knife - $45.00

Cooking is fun with the world's first patterned knife. Groovy!

Corkcicle contemporary barware

Corkcicile Bottle Chiller - $29.95

Insert into a wine bottle and it chills the wine
from the inside! The Corkcicle will maintain the
ideal serving temperature for an already-chilled
white wine for up to an hour.

Scentilizer MIST-WHISTLER, Frosted Glass - $349.95

Banish those lingering kitchen aromas! This product uses fragrant water vapor to reduce the dryness of indoor air. It also has a built-in speaker for pre-programmed music or to connect an iPod.


FFerrone Design Champagne Flute contemporary glassware

FFerrone Design Champagne Flute

This clever line of glassware by FFerone pulls
double duty. Shown here is the champagne flute...
or is it a cordial glass? You decide, with the flip
of the wrist.

Prepara Ice Balls contemporary barware

Prepara Ice Balls - $9.99, pk of 4

This ingenious product makes two-inch round balls of ice. You can fill it with just water or get creative with mint leaves, basil, juice, lemon or lime segments, etc. Large cubes are great for bourbon or whiskey drinks, as they won't melt as fast as regular ice.
