Charcuterie Board

A trendy classic that they are sure to love, a charcuterie board is practically an essential item for anyone who loves to host. Take it from us, you can never have too many boards as multiple ones are normally used at once to showcase different types of foods. We recommend the Ilve Chopping Board, and it’s easy to see why.

Measuring 18.11'' L X 11.02'' W, the Ilve Chopping Board has an abundance of space for you to bring your creative charcuterie ideas to life. Not only does the board have a universally appealing design, it also doubles as a sturdy cutting board.

With 15/16" of thickness, it seats spectacularly well into a griddle for easy cooking! This board is ideal for any host who not only has a charcuterie obsession (don’t we all?) but also loves to cook.

Pizza Oven

This one might indirectly be a gift to yourself but hey….. we don’t judge. Gifting a pizza oven is unique, fun, and means that you will get to enjoy delicious homemade pizza every time you pay them a visit! This is what we call the gift that keeps on giving.

With all the pizza ovens on the market, it’s important to make sure you are gifting a high-quality oven that is both convenient and will last a lifetime. The Kalamazoo Countertop Artisan Fire Pizza Oven checks both of those boxes and is also visually appealing with a sleek and modern design.

This countertop pizza oven has the ability to cook delicious artisan pizzas in just two minutes. Delivering the heat intensity of a wood brick oven, the Kalamazoo cooks pizzas at 800 degrees Fahrenheit while ensuring the precision of a gas flame. Its compact design allows for convenient portability and easy storage.

Coffee Maker

For most of us, coffee is an established if not religious part of our daily routine, in other words, you would be gifting liquid joy. The Miele CM MilkPerfection Countertop coffee machine will without a doubt go above and beyond to craft the perfect customized coffee again and again.

Specialty Knives

Specialty knives make a thoughtful and highly practical gift for anyone who enjoys being in the kitchen and preparing exquisite meals. There are a wide variety of especially knives when it comes to cooking so we decided to focus on the perfect knife for those who love hosting barbecues.

This exclusively designed Kalamazoo Brisket Knife is skillfully hand-crafted in Seki City, Japan, and comes with a stylish tailored leather sheath. With a sharpened 13-inch san mai blade and hollow ground dimples to reduce friction, this blade cleanly carves thin brisket slices with masterly precision.

Beverage Center

Every host needs a good beverage center to enhance the entertainment experience for their guests. Depending on what they prefer to drink you can tailor the type of beverage center to match their drink preferences.
