Bring a touch of spring to your kitchen accessories and decor with this practical list of tableware, gadgets and small appliances.

 

I start thinking about salads when heading into the spring season. A few years ago I upgraded my salad spinner to this large capacity stainless steel spinner. I love it! It’s super roomy, works like a charm and the stainless steel bowl can be used separately, making it a multi-function item in my kitchen. If you make a lot of salads, consider this spinner.

 

Here’s a gorgeous Acacia wood 3 piece salad bowl and server set. While your salad would display beautifully in this bowl, don’t limit its use to just greens. It would make a perfect vessel for popcorn, bread, fruit, or even just a decorative display piece when not in use. Also makes a great gift!

 

 

These Mason jar measuring cups and spoons are adorable! The sky blue color signals that winter is over and spring is here. Perfect for measuring dry or liquid ingredients. The material is ceramic and they are dishwasher safe.

 

 

I love my pieces from Le Creuset and my casserole dish is no exception. The stoneware cooks evenly and cleanup is a breeze thanks to the nonstick glazed interiors. I love that this one comes with a lid – perfect for storing leftovers (like my Bacon Brussels Sprouts Au Gratin) in the fridge and reheating the next day. If this lovely palm green isn’t your color, they have a wide range of other colors available from which to choose.

 

You can’t talk about springtime without thinking of eggs and all those Easter egg hunts, right? What in the world do you do with all those leftover hardboiled eggs? Slice ’em and dice ’em! (And make some tasty egg salad, or zesty potato salad!) This particular egg slicer offers 3 different slicing styles. Did you know you can also use egg slicers to slice mushrooms and strawberries?

 


I love this bright yellow earthenware mixing bowl. It’s chip-resistant and has a glossy finish. Comes in an assortment of sizes. Use it for mixing up yummy treats or as a serving bowl. (Serve up some Garlic Mashed Potatoes in it, or some Bourbon Pecan Mashed Sweet Potatoes. Yum!) Microwave and dishwasher safe. Made in Portugal.

 

How cute are these pink stainless steel and silicone whisks? Choose the right whisk for the job with this handy set of 3. If pink isn’t your thing, they come in a variety of other colors, too.

 

 

If you handle a lot of fish, garlic or onions, you might consider this handy stainless steel bar to rub away the odors. Just rub it between your hands like a bar of soap and it will help remove stubborn food odors from your hands.

These beautiful pastel hand-painted salad plates just say springtime to me. These would look stunning on solid color pastel plates or on just a solid white plate. There’s an entire line of dishes that compliment these plates, but I think they are lovely on their own, too.

 

This embroidered table runner has an elegant understated floral and cutwork design which is perfect for a springtime tablescape.

 

 

 

If you don’t already have a stand mixer, consider this best seller in this lovely Lavender Cream color. Swoon! Lots of other colors to choose from if lavender isn’t your thing. You will love having a stand mixer in your kitchen. From dough, to batters, to whipped mashed potatoes, you will use it all. the. time!

Whether you aspire to deck out your kitchen like the Great Hall or just have a cozy kitchen like Mrs. Weasley, here's a Harry Potter Gift Guide for the Cook or Foodie. Accio, cooking skills!

Surely there’s a Harry Potter fan in your life that’s also a foodie or a cook, right? I’ll admit, I came way late to the game, only reading the Harry Potter books just a few years ago. I know, right?! Needless to say, I’m now a huge fan and I love all the fun merchandise associated with HP. Here are just a few of the kitchen and cooking-related items that you can find on Amazon. What Harry Potter foodie fan wouldn’t love any one of these?

Note: This post contains Amazon affiliate links.

 

These Harry Potter Potions Master decals are everything! If your gift recipient has a stand mixer (like this KitchenAid mixer), they will absolutely love these high quality vinyl stick-on decals! HP fans love them – just read the reviews!

 

 

Obviously, every great potion master needs his/her secret book, right? Create your own potions, um, recipes with the best-selling The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook. You’ll find Treacle Tarts, Molly’s Meat Pies, Pumpkin Juice, Cauldron Cakes, Butterbeer, and many more – 150 recipes included!

 

The baker in your life will appreciate these Harry Potter Cookie Stamps. The set of 5 comes with a stamp for each house: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw. Zip pouch included for easy storage.

 

 

This heat-sensitive morphing mug will delight your recipient with the Marauder’s Magical Map reveal! Just pour your hot coffee (or Butter Beer) in the cup and watch for the reveal.

 

 

 

 

Drink your good luck potion from this appropriate Felix Felicis shot glass to ensure that you will be successful in your future endeavors. You wouldn’t want to leave it to chance, would you?

 

 

Harry Potter BeansGive the gift of Harry Potter Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans by Jelly Belly. No wizard should be without a box.

 

 

 

This Harry Potter Letter To Hogwarts Packable Tote Bag makes a great gift. When you fold the tote up for easy storage, it makes a letter!

Wear this “I Solemmly Swear That I Am Up To No Good” apron when whipping up your next batch of Treacle Tarts or Polyjuice Potion. Made out of a cotton/poly blend, it has two front pockets and ties at the waist.

Gift Guide For The Smoothie Lover

This Gift Guide for Smoothie Lovers will help you choose the perfect item for those in your life who love blending and crafting their protein shakes, smoothies and smoothie bowls.

The key to great smoothies is to use the right tool. It’s no secret that a powerful blender will give you the ultimate smoothie experience and allow you to blend, (ahem, pulverize 😉 ) those rock-solid or frozen ingredients that add all that nutritious goodness that you’re looking for. My favorite high-powered blender is the powerhouse Vitamix blender. This bad boy will make quick work of frozen fruits, leafy greens, little bitty seeds…you name it, it’ll blend it. There’s a reason it has stellar ratings across the board. This appliance will last you decades. I kid you not (go read the reviews!). And if for some reason it doesn’t, warranty issues and customer service from the Vitamix company is also stellar. So you can buy this investment appliance with confidence. The only hard thing you’ll have to do is figure out which model (and color) you want. Oh, and this beauty is not just for smoothies. No, sir. You’ll have fun learning the different ways it can help you in the kitchen.

✅ May I suggest this one.

 

If you’re looking to up your smoothie game, check out this best-selling smoothie cookbook. You’ll learn how to combine ingredients to create superfood smoothies. If you or your gift recipient loves experimenting, then this recipe book is for you, er…them.

 

The totally trendy way to consume your smoothie these days is to drink it from a mason jar, with handles, of course. Here’s an affordable 6-pack of goodness for you or your gift recipients.

 

 


And if you’re more old school, you or your recipient will love these fountain shop glasses…I do! Smoothies, ice cream floats, milkshakes…they’re classy and make whatever you put in them look yummy and delicious.

 


For an eco-friendly way to sip your smoothie, check out these reusable stainless steel straws. Very chic! They’re wide enough for thick smoothies and shakes and they’re dishwasher friendly.

 


For the person who loves smoothie bowls as opposed to shakes, this beautiful smoothie bowls recipe book will delight! Ooh and ahh through the pages as the author shares how to create these visual masterpieces of nutrition.

 

Also for the smoothie bowl lover, may I suggest these eco-friendly handmade natural coconut shell bowls with wooden spoons. Not just for smoothies – use for salads, soup, cereals, Buddha bowls and fruits. Gorgeous!

 

Love making almond milk by hand? Then you’ll want this best-selling and top-rated pro-quality nut milk bag. It’s bigger and better and perfectly shaped to handle the task at hand. Its super strong construction makes this a true re-usable bag.

 

I have a freezer full of frozen fruit just for my smoothies. Ditch the traditional plastic freezer bags for these eco-friendly and re-usable silicon bags. They are food-grade safe and don’t contain toxins. They’re also leak-proof, fridge and freezer friendly as well as microwave friendly. These are a must-have, smoothie lover or not!

 

And finally, while it won’t replace my beloved Vitamix, this little personal blender will do the trick if I’m traveling or on the go. It’s lightweight enough to pack in a carry on or in your luggage if checking your bag. It will work with ice or small-chunk frozen fruits and will blend well-enough that you can still call your concoction a smoothie! 😉
