You likely know a passionate baker, gracious host, or true foodie. The obvious choices when gift-giving for them are food-adjacent products. To make it feel special, however, it can be tempting to buy those oh-so-pretty novelty measuring cups or a set of quirky mugs. While these gifts have their place, if you’re shopping for the truly serious chef, it can feel a bit like you’re introducing clutter into a pro-quality kitchen. But more utilitarian gifts can just feel… blah. And, if you’re not also an aspiring contestant on Bake Off, it can also be tricky to know which buys are worthy of the chef in your life and which are overpriced status pieces it’s just as easy to skip. Which is why we love Made In. Its line of kitchen essentials perfectly balances design and function for gifts that are as practical as they are beautiful — and are reliably high-quality.
