Posted on June 4, 2017 in Living Well with 1 Comment

Do you ever find yourself at a loss for gift ideas for your friends? Gift-giving can be a tricky affair for many people because finding the perfect gift is about finding something that has utility for the recipient. There are loads of gift ideas you must have to explore but doesn’t tally with the person in question.


Well, if they like to cook, you’re in luck. Also, almost everyone owns a kitchen and will eventually cook a meal (even if they’re not foodies). In this post, we’re going to show you 5 kitchen tools you can buy for your friends that they will always be grateful for.


Kitchen Towel Set

You only need to be in the kitchen once to see the value of kitchen towels. They may not be expensive or fancy, but they are really useful. A lot of hand-cleaning goes on in the kitchen and there’s the occasional handling of hot utensils. That’s when kitchen towels prove their worth. You could buy an entire set and gift to your friend and they’ll thank and remember you for it.

Kitchen Knife Sharpener

For those who cook a lot, a dull or blunt knife is kind of a problem. A kitchen knife sharpener will be a priceless gift. Admittedly, there are several ways to sharpen a knife – sending them to the market to have them sharpened or, going old school, sharpening them off of the edge of a stone or coarse concrete. Well, these processes are tedious. Also, swiping two knives against each other only goes so far before the edges are dull again. Gift your friend a kitchen knife sharpener and save them the trouble. This gift idea is one of a kind.


Non-sticky Spoons and Utensils

These come in handy when cooking or frying delicate meals that shouldn’t break or stick to the utensil. It can be a set of spoons or pans. If your friend doesn’t already own a set, you can gift them one.


Onion and Vegetable Chopper

This tool comes in handy when you either don’t fancy chopping with a knife or a number of onions and vegetables is rather much. It’s quick and safe to use. It always makes for a nice gift to get your foodie friend – and they will thank you for it.



Measuring Cups and Spoons


You know what they say, you can never have too many cups and spoons. Okay, no one says that, but you get the point. You can gift your foodie friend a set of measuring cups and get the feeling like you got them something important. Measuring cups come in handy in the kitchen and one often gets to wonder how they managed without them beforehand.


There you have it, do these seem like exciting gift options for you? Try getting and gifting them to your friends and see how they react. Each of the items showcased here is under N5000 (as at the time of writing this) and can easily be purchased at a supermarket.
