Ah, Christmas – it’s a magical time, isn’t it? A holiday where you’re practically encouraged to eat and drink to excess and given the perfect opportunity to show the people you love just how much you care about them with thoughtful gifts that come from the bottom of your heart. Or, conversely, a holiday where you can show the people you love just how little they mean to you with a last-minute purchase of whatever looks the least offensive on the Amazon homepage. We’re personally advocates of the more considerate approach. And, seeing as you’re on this site, we’d say it’s safe to assume that: A) you’re a good egg, too, and B) you’re in the market for a gift that’s suitable for someone who likes to cook.
While a lot of top kitchen tools can reach some fairly eye-watering prices, the good news for you (and your wallet) is that you don’t have to break the bank to get some snazzy new kitchen equipment for the budding chef in your life. To save you racking your brains for a present that your nearest and dearest will actually enjoy, we’ve curated this list of the best gifts for home cooks under £25. Hell, you might even find a little something for yourself as well. Happy holidays.
