If you are looking for Christmas gifts for your family and friends, look no further than this list of top 15 kitchen gifts that can bring joy all year round. We all know the best gifts are thoughtful and the ones that really play to people’s interests, so this list is designed to cater for all manner of culinary hobbies and dining interests.

Our designers have input their hand-chosen Christmas gift ideas based on their own kitchen interests, passions and experience. So whether you are shopping for someone with a passion for cooking, a keen baker, a wine connoisseur, a chocoholic or a BBQ master, we've got you covered.

1. Halden Gin Glasses by the White Company

If you are looking for something a little special and modern these lead-free, crystal gin glasses from the White Company may be just the ticket for the gin lover in your life. Hand-blown in Poland, the contemporary shape features a wonderful chunky base, which feels comfortable to hold whilst helping to keep the drink cool, too.

2. Miele Wine Cooling

One of the pricier items on the list, a wine cooler makes an extravagant gift for the wine connoisseur in your family. A wine cooler provides long-term storage for your wine collection, designed to protect your wine from environmental changes and humidity. If your family member or lucky friend wants to preserve their collection, allow their wine to age properly and ultimately, taste its best, then a wine cooler will make an incredible gift for them this Christmas.

Our official partners Miele have a range of different wine coolers for any kitchen design that you can retrofit to an existing kitchen, open plan living space or cellar. There is a wine cooler solution for every situation from freestanding units, built-in wine units, and built-under wine units. If you would like to know more about how you can incorporate a wine cooler into an existing kitchen, contact a KCA designer at the link below.

3. Wine Aerator & Stand from Soirée 

Now, if you have someone in the family that appreciates a good glass of wine but a wine cooler wouldn't suit then this wine aerator from Soirée Home will make a great gift.

The aerator helps to soften the wine's tannins, unlocking its full potential flavour and aroma. The Soiree wine aerator decants one glass at a time, accelerating aeration, allowing oxygen to transform each glass as you pour. After all, if you love your wine, sometimes you simply can't wait!
