2018 Home and Kitchen Holiday Gift Guide by Nutmeg Nanny - a fun collection of home and kitchen goodies that will be perfect for anyone on your Christmas list.

I’m back! This time with a home and kitchen holiday gift guide. (Did you see my 2018 self care holiday gift guide?) I included a few of my favorite things (cue The Sound of Music playing in my head) that I think everyone should have in their house. I don’t always do a gift guide but the few years that I have I’m always trying to get people to buy a Vitamix. Seriously, they are so good.

If you love the duvet I linked to you need be on the lookout because soon I’m going to be posting my master bedroom makeover and it’s features that bad boy. It’s a secret which pattern but I can assure you it’s not the one I linked too.

Now, get to shopping. It’s almost Christmas!

  1. 100% Cotton Duvet with Zip Closure: I bought this duvet a few weeks ago and it’s fabulous! I love that it’s cotton so it soft, washes easily and feels cool to the touch. I also love that the end of the duvet zippers closed as I find the button duvets to always come undone. – $55
  2. The Laundress Signature Detergent: Ok, I know this would be a luxury purchase but that is what makes it the perfect gift. This detergent smells so lovely and has become one of my favorites. – $20
  3. Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven: I’ve been an enameled cast iron lover ever since I saw Ina using one on Barefoot Contessa. I use it to make soup, jam, fruit butter and even to roast chicken. – $340
  4. 6 Quart Multicooker/Pressure Cooker: I know everyone recommends these bad boys but honestly they really are great. I love them for pressure cooker hard boiled eggs! – $70
  5. Pour Over Coffee Brewer: Until a few months ago we had a pod-style coffee maker. It served its purpose for years but I wanted to free up counter space so we opted to change to a pour over brewer. This little guy makes the perfect amount for my husband and I and because the filter is reusable I don’t have to worry about paper filters. – $28
  6. Nespresso VertuoPlus Deluxe Espresso Maker: Full disclosure, I don’t own this machine BUT I used when I was at Julie’s house and I LOVED it! It was super easy to use, the espresso tasted great and it’s a great option for folks who love the coffee pod lifestyle. – $132
  7. Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea: I’ve been obsessed with this tea for years. Harner & Sons is a local company but can be found online and in some markets. This cinnamon tea is naturally sweet because of the use of sweet cloves and is heavy on the cinnamon flavor. The best part is that the cinnamon flavor is real and not fake tasting like a lot of other cinnamon teas – $10
  8. Essential Oil Diffuser: I put a diffuser on two of my lists because they are the best. You can diffuse different oils to help with stress, sleep, and to rid the house of weird food smells. I love diffusing lavender at night in my bedroom. – $27
  9. Microfiber Cleaning Cloth: There is an MLM of these microfiber cloths and the first time I used them I was seriously impressed. Then someone pointed me to these e-towels which are cheaper and work just as well. All you need is water and this rag can clean it all. I’m totally not kidding. Just water. It even cleans grease without streaking. – $20
  10. Grapefruit Spoons: I’m a huge grapefruit lover but I’m the first to admit they are a pain the ass to eat. That’s why I LOVE these grapefruit spoons. The little rigid edges help take out the grapefruit segments one at a time. – $8
  11. Automatic Soap Dispenser: A few years ago Gina gave me this automatic soap dispenser and it’s been life-changing. No more dirty hands trying to pump out soap. All I have to do is put my hand under the dispenser and soap will magically appear. I also love that you can adjust how much soap comes out. – $40
  12. Cotton Kitchen Towels: This is such a great deal because you get 15 towels! They wash up easily, can be used all over the house and are cute enough to be used a straight up hand towel. If you’re looking to cut back on paper towel usage these towels are a step in the right direction. – $16
  13. Harney & Sons Paris Tea: This black tea is everything! It smells like blueberry muffins (to me) and is perfect with a splash of milk. Everyone I have told about this tea ends up loving it. Trust me! – $8
  14. Shark TruePet Bagless Vacuum: Do you have pets? If you answer yes that means you have pet hair errrrrrywhere. This vacuum really does work! Because it’s bagless it creates a strong suction to pick up all those pet hair and dander. – $250
  15. GIR Silicone Spatula: Is it weird to love a spatula? They are perfect because they are silicone fro the top to the bottom so there are no seams for food to get stuck in. – $12
  16. Wool Dryer Balls: Want to get rid of dryer sheets? These wool dryer balls can be used over and over again, stop static cling AND you can sprinkle them with essential oils to bring in a little dyer scent. – $17
  17. S’well Water Bottle: Do you love your hot drinks to stay hot? And your cold drinks to stay cold? You need a S’well. I’m not being paid to say this. I have 3 of their bottles and they are the best. I can go to bed with ice water and wake up in the morning with ice still in my bottle. – $27
  18. Thermapen: Until I bought one of these I thought it was ridiculous to pay this much for a thermometer. Then I got one and I knew it was worth the hype. You get a temperature reading in 2-3 seconds so there is no more waiting and waiting for the thermometer to get up to temperature. – $80
  19. Gooseneck Electric Kettle: I’ve been big into tea and coffee this year so I finally got myself an electric kettle. I love this model because it’s gooseneck (so fancy!) and you can adjust the temperature of the water. If you’re a good tea person that means you’ll love this for low heat green tea. If you’re me you’ll still brew to 212 even for green tea because you’re a rebel. – $35
  20. Roku Ultra Streaming Player: We haven’t had cable for almost 10 years so we use our Roku all. day. long. We don’t have a smart TV so this help manage Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, HBO, etc. You get it – all my streaming channels. Plus you can subscribe to certain movie channels right on your Roku. Will you make fun of me if say I have Lifetime Movie subscription?  – $80
  21. Vitamix Blender: You all know I love my Vitamix. If you haven’t invested in one you need to put it on the list! Yes, it’s expensive but sooooooo worth it. I love it for soups but honestly, my favorite thing to use it for is Vitamix hot chocolate – $500
  22. Microplush Heated Blanket: It’s cold. I need to be warm. This blanket is plush, soft and oh so warm! – $73
  23. iPhone and iWatch Charging Dock Station: This docking station is the best. It’s super affordable and charges both your iWatch and iPhone at the same time. It also keeps my cords organized which is a huge plus because usually, I’m in cord rat king hell. – $8
  24. Reusable Food Wraps: I first saw these wraps about 10 years ago and since then I have seen them pop up everywhere. They are made with beeswax so they stick to your bowl, etc. without coming off. Just don’t use them with meat as the juices don’t work well with the wraps. – $18
  25. Digital Food Scale: I use a scale daily for weighing my food but it’s also a great addition to your kitchen for by weight baking. – $14
  26. Dish Drying Mat: I have zero room on my counter for a traditional dish drainer so I like using these mats because they dry quickly, absorb water really well and I can hang it on my oven door so it’s out of the way. Plus, they are pretty affordable and can be washed easily. – $6
  27. Glass and Polishing Cloth: You know that e-cloth I mentioned above? This cloth is just like that but for glass. You’ll love that all you need is water! – $13
  28. American Kitchen Non-Stick Skillet: I’m hard on skillets so when I recommend something I mean it! These non-stick skillets are a workhorse in the kitchen, don’t scratch and have yet to warp on me. I always hand wash these pans because it helps keep them in tip-top shape. The link takes you to a 12-inch skillet but they also make a 10-inch and an 8-inch skillet. – $100
  29. Loose Tea Diffuser: Do you love loose leaf tea? Or, do you want to love it but don’t know where to start? Well, you’re going to need a diffuser and this little set is super cute and perfect for all your loose tea needs. I love that the holes are tiny so it will work well with fine and course loose leaf tea. – $16
  30. Cafe Milk Frother: I know it’s bougie but I do love me some frothed milk in my coffee. I know this is a more expensive option but I love that it gives you the options to adjust temperature, make cold foam and the top comes off from the base so it’s easy to clean. – $130

This creamy bacon jalapeno corn dip is packed full of flavor, ready in 20 minutes and perfect for any holiday party. I added lots of extra crispy bacon and tons of spicy jalapenos. You'll love this quick and easy appetizer!
