Christmas Gift Guide for the DIY Home Chef – all under $30

It seems like all year I have a bunch of great ideas of gifts that I want to get everyone on my list. The ideas are creative, thoughtful, and unique to each person. But of course I don’t think to write them down because “I will totally remember them!”

Then December rolls around and I am stumped! If only I had some sort of Christmas gift guide to help me through this process…

Well look at that! I have one right here! This Christmas gift guide is a little selfish on my part because these are all things that I would love to find under the tree this year. (Will someone please forward this list to my hubby?)
