These are a few of my favorite (kitchen) things...

Before the holiday shopping season officially starts and we begin searching for the perfect gifts for everyone on our list, I want to share some of my favorite kitchen items that are the perfect gifts to buy for yourself now.  

1. 10-Piece Glass Bowl Set
I use these bowls ALL the time... for prep, for leftovers, for taco night and for serving.  They are made of tempered glass so they can be used for hot or cold foods and are dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe.  For those of you that don't have a lot of storage space, or should I say especially for those of you that don't have a lot of storage space, these are great because they nest inside of each other so you only need a space big enough to fit the largest bowl.  I don't know what I ever did without them!
10-Piece Glass Bowl Set $39.95

2. Juicer
This makes juicing lemons and limes for my green smoothies a cinch.  The built in strainer retains the pulp and seeds while allowing you to squeeze out every last drop of juice.  This juicer is also top-rack dishwasher safe which makes for easy clean up.
Chef'n Citrus Juicer $19.95

3. Apple Slicer
This easily and evenly slices and cores apples.  It's great to use when baking, making smoothies or even when you just want some apple slices as a quick snack.  Dishwasher safe.
OXO Steel Apple Divider $11.95

4. Titanium Kitchen Shears
These shears are the one kitchen item that I never knew I needed until I got my first pair.  Perfect for chopping herbs and leafy greens, these shears can also open bottles and crack nuts if you so desire.  Dishwasher safe.

5. Stainless Steel 3pc Colander Set
This stainless steel 3pc set includes small, medium and large colanders that can be used for everything from draining pasta to rinsing fruits and vegetables.  The wire feet allow the water to drain easily and quickly.  These colanders are sturdy and dishwasher safe yet attractive enough to leave out on the counter with some washed grapes or berries for snacking.
Stainless Steel 3pc Colander Set on sale for $50 (reg. $57)
Go ahead and buy something for yourself... you deserve it!
