1Best gifts for foodies and home chefs from Bosch
Got an avid home baker in the family? Or just one of those “crunchy” friends who loves to cook from scratch with top notch, never-fail-me kitchen appliances? Good, then you don’t want to pass up this Bosch Mixer. Gift your kitchen-lovin’ loved one with a package that includes, literally, everything a baker needs. Especially if that baker loves making bread and lots of other goodies that begin their deliciousness with dough.
With its open-bowl design, adding ingredients while not making a mess (thanks splash guard) is a breeze. We also love that with this innovative open-bowl design, the motor is right underneath the mixing action. This means your baker will never lose power when creating their much-anticipated goodies. Need a large batch of cookies…no problem. We’re talking 16 cups of flour kind of no problem!
Of course, you’ll also be gifting the versatility that comes with the Universal Plus with Baker’s Accessory Pack. Complete with wire whips (for whipping), cake paddles (light batters), cookie paddles (heavy batters), and the dream accessory – the bowl scraper that wonderfully fits over any of the mixing tools. This way, all the ingredients will always stay in the mixing area. And yes, you get that wonderful dough hook (with extender) to accommodate either a small or large batch dough.
However your baker loves to bake and mix…get them the best mixer that can handle just about any job that’s worth mixing, baking, and enjoying this holiday season. Give them a reason to get excited again about being in the kitchen with Bosch!

10Best gifts for foodies and home chefs from Just The Wine
Attention wine connoisseurs! All you actually need is the wine to enjoy the tastes, flavors, and company of a fine wine. What you don’t need are the added sulfites still lingering in your bottle after the manufacturing of the wine. Used as a preservative and antimicrobial agent, sulfites still remain in your wine long after the wine-making process has been completed.
Just The Wine uses the same wine-process to naturally adjust levels of the free sulfites (the kind that usually affects sulfite-sensitive individuals) to neutrality. Of course, with this natural bonding, you will not alter the taste of your wine or taste any of the drops themselves. This is definitely worth a toast to having Just The Wine in your glass.
Memories are made in the kitchen. This is especially true during the holidays where family and friends inevitably gather. It’s also a place where foodies and home chefs alike share their passions. So this year give them the gift that keeps giving – inspiration and access to the finest tools for the kitchen.
