Gourmet Gifts // DIY Food Gifts Cookbook // #BooksForCooks

We all have that friend or family member who is just SO hard to shop for, simply because they go above and beyond in all gifts they give. This book will make finding their perfect DIY gift all the easier. A beautiful mix of DIY, crafting, and food, it is the first cookbook that gives equal weight to both the recipes, and how to package them. Projects range from hostess gifts like Chalkboard Cheese Board with a Quince Paste, to get-well offerings like Herbal Tea Sachets presented in teacups. You may be giving this book, but we have a feeling you’ll soon be receiving something in return… :-)

The Bonne Femme Cookbook // #BooksForCooks

While we all may want to receive a plane ticket to Paris in our stocking, or at least some fresh Laduree macarons, Wini Moranville’s The Bonne Femme Cookbook is a bit easier to give, and lighter on the wallet. Four-color and full of sweet illustrations and authentic recipes, it is the ultimate cookbook to gift. Also helps to re-acclimate your “semester abroad” son or daughter who just returned from Normandy…!

Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook // #BooksForCooks

We have two favorite things about Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Cookbook. First, if you know anyone who owns a crock pot or slow cooker (say, anyone who got married within the last ten years), chances are they are letting it collect dust somewhere and could use some flavorful recipes—like Twice-Crocked Stuffed Potatoes with Cheddar and Chives and Thai Pork with Peanut sauce—as inspiration to dig it out of the back of their cupboard.

And if your recipient doesn’t already own a slow cooker? Well then this book makes an even more perfect gift when paired with that shiny new Hamilton Beach!
