The Ultimate Host Gift Guide

November 25, 2015 by Kenmore

Some of us have never been able to move past the “cut and bake” cookies or frozen pizza school of baking. And we’ve also relied heavily on paper plates and red Solo® cups when it comes to creating an atmosphere (please don’t ask us to point out where the salad fork is).

It’s why we absolutely love going to events thrown by our more hosting-experienced friends and family members. These people are essential to making holidays, birthdays and even random dinner nights unforgettable.

But now it’s time to get them a gift that shows how much you appreciate the energy and magic they pull off at every party. But where do you start? It’s simple. Get them something that makes it even easier for them to show off their killer party-hosting skills. And if you’re the kind of person who lives to entertain, put some of these finds on your wish list!

Gifts to Help with Prep Time

The right small kitchen appliances are all anyone needs to whip up those multilayered cakes, moist brownies and perfectly popped-up breads from scratch that we mere mortals can only pin to our boards. Blenders and food processors help cut down on prep and free up more time to origami-fold napkins. This Kenmore® Stand Mixer even supports attachments for a food grinder, pasta roller and food slicer/grater — talk about being prepared! And you’ll be thankful your host with the most has a reliable coffee maker for when you’ve finished your second helping of dessert!

Party planners, here’s where you really need to treat yourself and take your kitchen game from sauté to fricassée in no time!
