Gift Guide

gift guide: domestic goddess in training

This gift guide is for an aspiring domestic goddesses with feminine taste (sound like someone familiar?). This girl wants to be the queen of the kitchen while still being totally glamorous. Buy her books on cooking and entertaining or on how to sew a button. Grab her a darling stocking stuffer like a chic polka-dot thermos for her morning commute. Last but not least buy her some sparkling wine to sip on while she cooks.

Crate and Barrel bakers twine, 6. Sofia Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine, 7. Kate Spade polka-dot thermos, 8. Jessica Steele Deco Dot oven mitt, 9. "How To Sew A Button: And Other Nifty Things Your Grandmother Knew" by Erin Bried}

as domestic goddess myself (fully trained i might add =) i love this list. especially that darling apron, the all clad measuring cups (don't underestimate a quality measuring tool) and the how to sew a button book. that last one, i could really use!

Catherine * The Spring said...

Love the apron, measuring cups, and tray! Remember, if you're giving kitchen gifts at Christmas visit the kitchen of the recipient so you know their colour scheme... a glam domestic goddess in training will likely be trying to work one!

I'm inspired by you to be a little better in the kitchen! I just wanted to tell you about this hilarious novel by Sophie Kinsella, author of the Shopaholic series. The novel is called The Undomestic Goddess. I thought you might enjoy the heroine's quest to becoming better in the kitchen/home as well!

Btw: I love your blog. It's one of the first blogs I came across which totally inspired me to start my own. I hope mine can become just as interesting, useful and sincere as yours.

That's a cute apron! I get so intimidated when bloggers do posts about cooking and food :( I tried to make jello shots for a party and couldn't even get that right! Oh well, might as well look cute while I'm burning stuff...

Ashley,

I looooove that book! I read the entire thing on a round trip flight from Virgina and was totally captivated. I felt so connected to that. I have never been considered domestic. This is my first year of where I actually enjoy cooking, cleaning, and taking care of things. People may think it's boring, but I still love fashion and glamour. I want it all!

Thanks!

Marcie said...

Perfect timing for this! I am putting together my "wish list" right now and looked at FB for a break and there you were!

I love Jessie Steele! I have 3 of her aprons. My favorite one is covered in holly (for Christmas).

And that thermos is so cute. I posted that in my "very Kate Spade Christmas" post.

Britney said...

This section is so me...lol, I'm the ruler of the kitchen. I love to cook, try new recipes, make my own recipes, everything! But of course I'm still the goddess when it comes to fashion.
