I can’t believe it’s the holiday season! The temperature is cooling and it’s time for soups, comfort foods, and warm desserts!

It’s also shopping season! I’m a wanna-be minimalist, so I like things that are multi-purpose, functional, clean style, and long-lasting. If it’s eco-friendly, that’s a plus!

Below I’m sharing some of my kitchen favorites to add to your wishlist or gift to your mom friends. I’m also including functional gifts for your little ones, as well. I like gifting my own son something functional (but still fun)–these items serve that purpose well!

For Moms

Stasher Bags: These silicone bags come in various sizes, are dishwasher safe, and completely resuable (a replacement for plastic baggies). Perfect for lunchboxes, purse snacks, and diaper bags. You can use them for other items besides food, too! Below is a pictures of the sandwich size in orange. View all the fun colors and sizes here.

Lunchbots: These stainless steel containers can hold your entire lunch or a variety of snacks. They come in plenty of different sizes to accommodate different appetites. Easy to use and clean + no harmful plastics to worry about. View the large container by clicking here.

Kate Spade Trivet: For some fun and style, this is a cute gift for yourself or a friend! Add a great recipe find and the ingredients to make it a complete gift! Get it here!

Glass Meal Prep Containers: There are TONS of options for these containers based on your needs. I LOVE having the two compartment containers for to-go produce prep. You see them in my posts often, as shown below. You can check out the type I have here.

Chef’s Knife: I recommend having one GREAT Chef’s knife and one paring knife–one of each is necessary for meal preparation. If you don’t already have one–you’re totally missing out. Here’s an example of a Chef’s knife from Amazon.

Air Fryer: This one is on my wish list! I can’t wait to use it for crispy veggies, chicken, and tots! I’m sure I’ll come up with some great recipes! There are tons of options, but here is the one I have my eye on!

Clear Storage Containers: Organization is key to a happy kitchen. Nobody likes to cook when they can’t find anything. Clear containers make organization simple and stress-free. Here’s an example.

Body Kindness Book: This book is witty, speaks so many truths, and can change lives! It helps you bring back joy in your life through self-care and kindness. It’s a gem–I recommend it to everyone! Get it here.

For Kiddos

Kids Kitchen Playset: Teach your kids to love cooking by starting with this playset of stainless steel kitchenware! Get it here.

Bentgo Lunchbox: This bento-box style lunch container holds the entire meal with several different compartments for different foods. Plus, they come in fun colors! It’s great for travel snacks/meals, too! Find it here.

Books That Talk About Food: A book is always part of a gift for my son each holiday. I love books that talk about food in neutral tone. One of our favorites is Dragons Love Tacos (get it here) or Eating the Alphabet (get it here).

Innobaby Stainless Steel Snack Container: I love filling up this container for travel and on-the-go snacks. It’s cute and easy to clean. Find it here.

Silicone Plates with Fun Designs: Silicone plate and bowls are our favorite! They are dishwasher, heat safe, and come in fun colors. They are come in fun shapes, likes cars or animals, which makes them a fun gift! Find a car-shaped plate here.

Extra Fun Utensils: Fun utensils make eating more interesting, and may even encourage picky eaters to enjoy a meal! This set is so fun!
