that won’t end up in the junk drawer!

The best non-toy, cooking gifts for the little master chef or baker in your life. 

 

SUPER FUN COOKING GIFTS FOR YOUR FOODIE BOY

BATMAN EGG HOLDER

Holy Batman, Robin! I love egg cups, I think they’re adorable no matter what the decoration. But a Batman egg, complete with mask??? Come on. I wish my youngest wasn’t allergic to eggs because he would absolutely love this.

 

MASTER CHEF JR. PIZZA SET

Your Friday Fun theme night will be even better when he can help make his own pizza, or pizzas for the whole family. This set has everything he needs in a small size perfect for little hands! I think this is a great cooking gift for your foodie boy – it’s practical and fun!

 

CIRCULAR SAW PIZZA CUTTER

If he’s making his own pizza, he needs a really cool cutter! Fair warning: the reviews say it only cuts through thin pizza, and to watch little hands with it. I would still totally get this for my 4 year old and just supervise him while using.

FUN NECESSITIES FOR LITTLE HANDS

NESTING MIXING BOWL & CUPS SET

This is a terrific set for kids and adults because of all the space it saves. It has two bowls, a colander, a fine mesh strainer, and measuring cups that all stack together. I think it would be really convenient for your favorite boy to just go “grab his set” when he wants to make something!

 

NYLON KNIFE SET

The reviews on this set are amazing, saying kids from 3-10 love it. I’m definitely getting them for my 4-year old! And surprisingly, although they’re nylon, they cut through fruits, veggies, cheese, and even chicken. Which means your little foodie can now help you make dinner or put together some freezer meals!

 

KIDS SILICONE ROLLING PIN

Perfect for small hands, a small rolling pin that can be used on pie dough or play doh 😉 I actually use my small rolling pin way more than my large one because it’s less bulky, and I love the bright colors!

BAMBOO NON-SKID CUTTING BOARD

The “non-skid” is especially important for safety here, and bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial. The bright green is a fun bonus 🙂 Plus, I love the idea of giving him his own cutting board to use!

 

COOKING CLASS COOKBOOK

There are a lot of kids cookbooks out there, but some of them are just adult recipes re-packaged or decorated for kids. This one is a best seller and looks like the perfect blend of teaching kids how to cook, kitchen safety, and simple yet fun recipes! Get them to help by picking out some recipes to put on your meal planner – I always say, a kid who is involved in planning dinner is a kid who eats better.

SUPER FUN COOKING TOOLS

KITCHEN KONG GORILLA WHISK 

First of all, I want to buy this for the name alone. Kitchen Kong??? Yes, please. Second of all, my 4 year old picked this out over a carrot whisk so there you have it. The voice of the foodie boys have spoken.

GNOMES APRON

Not surprisingly, there are not a lot of boy’s cooking aprons out there but this one is cute and not too girly all at the same time. My son hand-picked this one as well and he’s already put it on his list! 

FISH MEASURING CUPS + SPOON SET

Are these not the cutest measuring set you’ve ever seen? They’re quite adorable but I like that they stack to save space, and hang together on a ring – no lost measuring spoons in the bottom of the utensil drawer!
Tie these up with the bright nesting bowls and gorilla whisk for a cute gift basket! 

BABYCAKES TRIPLE DELIGHT

Most of the Babycakes makers are one-trick ponies, which is why I haven’t spent the money on one yet. But this one has 3 interchangeable plates – making donuts, cupcakes, or cake pops (mom bonus: easy clean-up!). I know my little guy would love making any of these and I love that it would be a small batch instead of a dozen donuts that are calling my name…
Wrap it up with a few boxes of cake mix (or ingredients to make from scratch), cake pop sticks, icing and you’re done 🙂 

 

FUN SHAPES SILICONE CUPCAKE MOLDS

These are great for your little guy to make muffins and cupcakes in fun shapes. He can use them in his play kitchen or in his real kitchen. But honestly, my favorite use for these are as separators in school lunch boxes, drawers, all over the kitchen really.

 

AND YOU JUST HAVE TO INCLUDE

LEGO CHEF & BUTCHER

Ok, ok. I know I said this list was not toys but I couldn’t help myself. I was seriously all done with this list and then I saw these, and knew I had to include them! If your foodie boy is also a LEGO lover…well, you know what you have to do.

So there you have it. Over a dozen perfect gifts for the boy who loves to cook!
