Creative Kitchen Gadget Gifts for the Ultimate Hostess

If your friend is constantly playing hostess, you know she's a pro at planning parties. She's got all of the necessary tools to pull together a killer bash or dinner and she can whip up a crowd winning recipe in no time. She may be the perfect hostess, but that doesn't make it any easier to find her the perfect gift.

This year skip the bottle of wine or generic household gift and pick out something that is more unique and fun; a gift she can use the next time she hosts a party!

For the friend that has it all, we've put together a fun list of creative kitchen gadgets and tools that she probably doesn't have yet. Whether you are looking for a gag gift to make her laugh or something that she can get a lot of use out of that matches her personality, these gifts will definitely do the trick!

  • Nerd alert! This Mac Book cutting board is a great gift for your Apple loving friend. We can totally picture her checking out recipes on her laptop then slicing and dicing with this look-a-like wooden board.

  • A handmade gift is always a special, but if you're not the crafty type, this "eat" sign made out of recycled wood is a great decor piece for her kitchen. You can even customize the color so it matches her decor!

  • For the hostess looking for the next crazy jell-o shot or cocktail recipe, these cool shooters. Simply fill up your ice shooter molds with water, let freeze and go to town. Plus, we think this gift is mutually beneficial.

  • A pretty server is always a must for a party, especially if your friend is a big baker. We love this one because it is vintage and hand stamped. What better way to hint that cake should definitely be served at her next party!
