5 Valentine’s Day Kitchen Gifts For Your Loved One

Go beyond chocolate and flowers this year and give your Valentine a gorgeous gift for the kitchen instead!

Chocolate gets all the attention at Valentine’s Day: chocolate fondue, chocolate ganache torte, chocolate champagne truffles … and we get it! Any one of those homemade sweets would be a decadent way to show your love this holiday.

But if sweets aren’t the way to your Valentine’s heart, how about a special-something for the kitchen instead?

From a gorgeous enameled cast-iron braiser to a top-of-the-line pepper mill, here are five excellent gifts for the discerning and enthusiastic cook in your life.

Royal Doulton Tapas Bowls, Set of 8

These hand-dipped porcelain tapas bowls are not only pretty, they're super practical, too! You can use them for snacks, appetizers, or even just a bowl of ice cream or yogurt.

$31 for set of eight

Brabantia Stackable Glass Food Storage Containers, Set of 3

These modular, stackable glass food storage containers are a beautiful and durable way to organize the pantry — a major upgrade from plastic containers and bags.

$25 for set of three

Le Creuset Enameled Cast-Iron Braiser, 3 1/2 Quart

If you're looking for a splurge gift for your favorite person this year, we love these beautiful braisers. They come in a wide range of colors, are made to last a lifetime, and are sure to make cooking in 2020 a joy.


Peugeot Classic 9-Inch Pepper Mill

The king of pepper mills! Peugeot pepper mills have been around for over 160 years, and for good reason: the burr-style grinding mechanism is considered the best out there. And the pepper mill also looks great sitting on the countertop!


Large End Grain Walnut Cutting Board, Made in the USA

A well-made cutting board will last years if cared for properly. This two-sided walnut board (made in the US!) features a juice groove on one side and three built-in compartments for chopped veggies (or a charcuterie board!) on the others side.
