A passion for cooking opens up a world of possibilities when it comes to gift-giving.
From cookbooks and high-end olive oil to sought-after small appliances and cast-iron cookware, there are so many options to stock up the kitchens of food lovers in your life. With that said, we’re also of the opinion that—even though we’re devout KitchenAid and Staub fans—the best kitchen gifts shouldn’t break the bank.
Enter this year’s Black Friday sales from retailers spanning Williams Sonoma to Target. Whether you’re shopping for your mom who already has a chef’s kitchen or your best friend who fell in love with cooking during quarantine, you can score up to 65% off a range of unique kitchen gifts this week.
