Just looking at its touchscreen it’s pretty clear that this toaster is anything but conventional. This amazing appliance comes with up to 63 configurable settings and intelligent algorithms to make sure you get THE perfect toast every. single. time.

These wraps are moldable, grippable and tacky, so you can wrap literally anything with them (including a halved avocado — yes we tried!). The wraps come in different colorways to match your loved one’s kitchen decor, and are a reusable, antimicrobial, and sustainable alternative to plastic wrap and single-use plastic.

4. Belly Warmer by Methodical Coffee ($16): To say the least, the holiday season can be challenging in this “new normal.” The virtual office combined with chaotic online shopping sprees, overlapped video calls, and tons of cooking can be utterly draining.

True to its name, this superb whole bean blend exclusive to Methodical Coffee sure comforts belly (ahem, body) and mind. Made from 50% Costa Rican and 50% Brazilian beans, Belly Warmer has the bold, chocolatey taste you crave every morning, with a delicious touch of almond butter. Fresh and tough, this coffee performs well in every single situation (percolator, our traditional European coffee pot, drip brewers — we have tested ’em all!). Simple and subtle, nutty and dark, this coffee blend is the ideal gift for early birders, essential workers, or, honestly, any coffee lover on your good boys/girls list! {This whole bean coffee blend is lovingly roasted in the USA with fair trade coffee from Costa Rica and Brazil.}

Completely manual and electricity-free, this coffee brewer is the ultimate vintage gift for the die-hard foodie who enjoys the convenience of modern appliances.

6. Spadle by Dreamfarm ($19.95): Is it a spoon? Is it a ladle? It’s Spadle, the versatile spoon that twists into a ladle! The key to this original creation is its handle, which transforms it from a cooking spoon to a handy ladle perfect for serving soups, creams, and stews from deep pots. It’s also good for measuring, because it comes with marks for for 1/2 cup, 100 ml, 1/4 cup, tablespoon, and teaspoon quantities (which is great for us Europeans living in the USA – the best of both worlds!) But that’s not all! Spadle features a flat squeegee tip perfect for scrapping every bit of food from your pans, bowls, and non-stick cookware. An ingenious and easy-to-use concept, this small and mighty invention is destined to become a true head-turner under the tree.
