Daily Mom’s Guide to Gifts for the Home Chef
The holidays are synonymous with good food. Plates and bellies are always full – and thankfully, there’s at least one member of every family that knows how to put on a show in the kitchen. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect gift for that person that not only feeds your hunger, but also feeds your soul, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve created a great list of the perfect gifts for the home chef!
Perfect for the homemaker at heart
There’s nothing like walking into a home during the holidays and being surrounded by the amazing smells of comfort food. From beef stew, warm rolls to roasted chicken, there’s nothing that Le Creuset’s famous dutch ovens can’t produce beautifully. We even love to use them to create a delicious holiday aroma using fresh foods and spices, simmering on the stove top. The iconic dutch oven is made of cast iron that maintains even and consistent heat from the stove top to the oven. Solid, heavy, and no need for seasoning, the 3 1/2 qt Oval Dutch Oven from Le Creuset is the perfect shape for longer cuts of meats and poultry, or a yummy side dish sure to feed the entire family. It’s no wonder Le Creuset has been the culinary chef’s go-to for over a century in high-end cookware. Their sought after shapes and colors are noticed on every kitchen stove.
- Suitable for both stove top and oven
- Colorful, chip-resistant, stain-proof exterior
- Dome shaped lid to lock in flavor
- Wide loop handles
- Signature black knob that can handle oven temperatures up to 500 degrees Farenheit
- No seasoning required

Fiesta is loved for its flexibility. The ability to mix and match colors is what has made these place settings so popular. There are endless color combinations that would brighten up any tablescape and all of the colors offered by Fiesta are vibrant and festive!
