Marble & Copper Monogram Board


“This is perfect for cheese or charcuterie platters, elegant cocktail service or as a festive holiday cookie tray. I also love how this board looks on its own in my kitchen! I buy letters specific to friends and have a “G” one at home for me.”




Staub Cast-Iron Round Tea Kettle


“This is a stunning piece of design for any kitchen; it’s one of the only accessories I  leave out at all times on display. It heats quickly and looks great on the stove or at the table—just use a tea towel for the handle, as it gets hot!”




Vitamix Pro 750 Heritage Blender In Copper


“I love the look and the power of this blender. We make everything from soups to sauces and smoothies in a flash.”



Amish Popcorn Library


“I am obsessed with popcorn, and this would be the ultimate gift for someone like me. I’m dying to do a taste test of all the different kinds. We make a lot of air-popped popcorn in our house, and I love coming up with fun spice blends and flavors as interesting toppings, from truffle salt to salty crushed nori or togarashi, dried citrus zest and “everything bagel” mix (a homemade blend of sesame  seeds, poppy seeds, salt,  garlic powder and onion powder.)”




Le Creuset Signature Cast-Iron Square Grill Pan


“This grill pan is a workhorse in my kitchen all through the winter when I don’t want to brave the cold to grill meat, fish or veggies. It cleans easily and brands everything with beautiful, professional char marks that make food taste and look so good. I love the lapis color too!”
