2018 Gift Guide: Home & Kitchen

by Erin Austen Abbott

Our 2018 gift guides continue with selections for the home cook, those who might like a little “hygge” in their lives, or someone looking to expand their home library.

My favorite area to buy gifts for each holiday season is the home, and more specifically, the kitchen. Kitchen goods are always at the top of my gift-giving list, and I love to give cookbooks and unique kitchen tools to all the home cooks on my list. I hope this independent shopping roundup helps you check a few people off your list, too. —Erin
