Everyone’s been spending more time at home in the past few months. For many people, that also means spending more time cooking. Maybe your friend has been learning to perfectly braise meat, or your aunt is making homemade dressing for all types of colorful salads. Home cooks prove that you don’t have to be a gourmet chef with years of formal training to whip up a delicious, nourishing meal.

Whether your loved one has years of culinary experience or is just entering the world of home cooking, make their day with a thoughtful gift for their kitchen. It can be a birthday gift, anniversary gift, or a gift just because. Whatever the occasion, your favorite home cook will appreciate receiving something to help make their handiwork even more delicious.

Buying groceries can be a real chore. There’s finding the right store, choosing the perfect items, paying for everything, and lugging it all home. Treat your favorite home cook to ingredients for an indulgent dinner or a quick mix for an instant treat.

Let’s face it: food is nothing without some quality seasoning. Add some pizzazz to your loved one’s kitchen by gifting the culinary aficionado in your life some savory flavors.

If their spice racks are already stocked, help them out in the kitchen with some new tools and appliances.

For the cooks who like a little adventure, let them try their hand at making their own restaurant favorites or experimenting with spice.

And of course, cooking doesn’t just happen indoors. When the weather gets warm, the grill gets hot! Help the home cook in your life sizzle up a storm.

When you send a gift to your favorite home cook using SmartGift, you also give the gift of choice. In addition to instant digital delivery, the gift’s recipient has the ability to perfect their gift by changing its color or style, or even swapping it for something of the same price. That way, everyone’s happy—and no one’s hungry.
