In full on Oprah style, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite things! From inexpensive stocking stuffers to a few “worth-it” splurges, these gifts will have you smiling ear to ear on Christmas morning. Ready?

  1. Kitchen-Aid Copper Stand Mixer | The holy grail of mixers now in chic copper!

  7. White & Gold Flatware | Swooning over this modern flatware set! Definitely a splurge, however.

  1. I absolutely LOVE those aprons! But then I saw the price, yikes! I can hire someone to serve my Christmas dinner for that. They are obviously tailor made and high quality but not I’m not spending that much on an apron

    1. Hi Michele,

      Thanks so much for the kind words and feedback! We’re always looking for ways to improve and reach more customers. We actually have a little something up our sleeve for a lower priced apron;) Be sure to stay tune!

      Happy Holidays!
      -The Bon Aprontit team

  2. LOVE this and so many great choices! I’m starting my Christmas shopping this weekend and definitely know where I’m coming for ideas;)

    Also, thanks so much for including Bon Aprontit, such an honor to be included in your round-up!

    Have a lovely weekend and holiday season!
