Number 1 on my list is the PepperMate Pepper Mill – Ina Garten’s favorite! (Full disclosure – the company sent me one to try and wow, it is a winner!). Previously, I’ll be honest, I thought that one pepper mill is just like the next but this one is different in all the right ways. The ergonomic turn key is really easy to use for me – even with my hand injuries and arthritis.
You can easily adjust the grind simply by twisting the key grind mechanism – turn right for a coarse grind and turn left for a fine grind! And it’s not just for peppercorns! You can use it for salt or dried herbs and spices such as coriander seeds and anise – even coffee. It’s manually operated (no batteries needed!) and comes with a lifetime warranty!
If you’re planning to gift this amazing pepper mill, add some of the colorful peppercorns to go with it!

Other top picks for me:
The pink kettle! It’s not just that it is pink (yes it comes in other colors too) but that sleek design is the perfect combination of retro and modern.
ANYTHING from Le Creuset. I’ve been wishing for it for ages.
Those marble pinch pots on a wooden board are intended for salt and pepper but I could see many uses for them.
The oil and vinegar cruets – I’m picturing these with the marble pinch pots on a tray near the stove for handy seasoning.
Add a selection of vinegars to go with the cruets.
How stunning is that monogrammed serving board??? The perfect gift for anyone.
The French butter dish has me swooning. It’s so pretty and I use butter every day so this is a perfect way of storing it.
The meat chopper – perfect for breaking up ground beef while cooking – makes a great stocking stuffer for any home chef. Other great stocking stuffers are the digital meat thermometer, herb chopping scissors, and bench scraper.
Last but definitely not least, those wine glasses are STUNNING. Modern and minimal in design, they’d be beautiful with any decorating style.
