10 Little Holiday Things for the Foodies in Your Life

Need a little extra something for the Foodie in Your Life this holiday season? Sometimes when we are holiday shopping, we need just one more little something to complete the package, can you relate?

Here are my 10 kitchen items that I am loving right now! They are full-proof, fun, and most importantly, useful! Numbers one and four are my most recent favorites; I have been using these tiny gems non-stop! Throw these tiny items in the bottom of your gift bag and complete your holiday package. The foodie in your life will have the perfect extra surprise, at a reasonable price for you! And easily use Membership Rewards® points for your shopping!

AMEX131204_THINGS_FOR_THE_FOODIE_revised AK for Alexis' Website AMEX131204_THINGS_FOR_THE_FOODIE_revised AK2

1. Milk Frother 

Calling all coffee lovers! Dairy-free for me! Have I told you how frothy almond milk gets? Mmmm… I feel like a barista when I use my milk frother. No joke. It completely transforms my what once was black coffee. Regardless of your milk preference, make that coffee, steam some frothy milk, hot or cold (hello, summer iced lattes!), top it with some cinnamon and there you have it… a seriously professional coffee!

2. Citrus Mister  

I use fresh lemon often. In my warm water in the mornings and when I make many of my dishes such as my Lemon Roasted ChickenLemon Poppy Seed Pancakes, Roasted Salmon, dressings, and more!  I used have to take a few minutes each time. Cut the lemon, squeeze half, throw it away, wash my hands, and then put the other half away in a Tupperware or plastic bag.  That’s a lot for one little squeeze of lemon, but it’s essential! This simple product makes it so easy. I leave it in my fridge and mist away whenever I need it.

3. Slipat Baking Sheet Liner 

My number one go-to item right now! I have not greased tin foil in months. Life-changing? You bet. It’s the simple things in life. My favorite ways to use this  product is for making sweet potato fries, homemade crackers, and cookies. 

4. Utensil Clip for Pot 

This tiny item may seem unnecessary, but let me tell you, throwing this gift in your foodie-lover’s gift bag is worth it. My first thought…. Turkey Chili. When I make it, my spoon is constantly in the pot stirring the soup, the spoon then waits somewhere on stove for the next stir, splatters all over, and makes a huge mess. I clip this little cute rooster to my pot and never have to worry about the mess on my stove! Worth it? Absolutely.

5.  Set of 4 Cutting Mats 

The foodie in your life probably uses cutting boards as much as I do. I love how this set organizes the kitchen and keeps things sanitized. Plus, they are flexible and easy to life and pour all of your chopped food directly into the bowl!

6. Bamboo Mortar and Pestle

Party time! I love using this for grinding herbs, serving dip, and making homemade guacamole for dinner or serving for guests! It looks nice, is food safe, eay to clean, and convenient!

7. Mandoline 

I use my mandoline weekly! I use it to make zucchini linguinesweet potato chips, and for slicing the perfect tomatoes. My favorite is the vegetable noodles! You’ll never miss pasta again (promise)!

8. Air Pop Popcorn

This is the best and only way to make popcorn, in my opinion! I ditched my microwave and bagged popcorn a long time ago. Now I buy organic kernels, throw ½ cup into the air-popper and have crisp and perfect popcorn every time, with way less additives.

9.  French Press Coffee Maker 

Your coffee-lover will really appreciate this one. If you appreciate a good cup of coffee, you’ll appreciate the coffee from a French Press. P.S. you can also brew fresh tea with the French Press! This alone, or paired with the milk frother… you’ll be the hit of the night!

10. Waffle Maker

If you’ve been to Lexi’s Clean Kitchen before, you know I love my good healthy pancakes, which often end up in my waffle maker for healthy weekend waffles! If someone in your life is into food, they’ll most likely be into waffles. Therefore, they’ll love you forever for this gift.

 I was selected by American Express as to help educate consumers about how to use Membership Rewards points. As such I was paid for my services, but all gift choices selected and opinions about the gifts and American Express are my own.
