Even if you’re still learning how to navigate your kitchen like a pro (*raises hand*), Adrianna Adarme can make even the most novice of chefs feel like they’re a finalist on a competitive cooking show. The author and master recipe developer behind the wildly successful blog A Cozy Kitchen is always serving up something delicious, and her Instagram feed is a never-ending source of culinary inspiration, whether you’re looking for clever cookware organization ideas, a quick meal to churn out for dinner, or suggestions for designing the ideal dining spot. It’s no surprise, then, that the list of gifts she’s eyeing—and giving—this holiday season is filled with pro tools for making your way around the kitchen—plus a few other must-haves for living a more stylish life.
I love my Vitamix—it’s a great investment piece for your kitchen. It makes the best soups, purees, and smoothies, and the motor is long-lasting. I’ve had mine forever.
Brightland olive oil is my favorite; it has so many different flavor points, and the packaging is beautiful. The company’s products are great for cooking and things like salad dressings.
I’m a big skin-care person and a huge believer in the double cleanse. This set from Then I Met You has a ton of nourishing ingredients, including olive oil, persimmon extract, and vitamin E.
We can all always use a good morning or afternoon pick-me-up. I’ve heard amazing things about this espresso machine from Breville—it makes drinks in less than a minute.
I love how organic these stoneware cups look; you can tell they were hand-thrown. They’re also the perfect size.
The Dream has the prettiest earrings. I wear these classic hoops on a daily basis; they go with everything and can easily transition from day to night.
NuFace is like a workout for your face—I always see a bit of a lift after I use mine. It’s a great gift for anyone who loves facials but isn’t getting them right now because of COVID-19.
All I want right now is comfort, and this sherpa blanket fits the bill. It’s nice and cozy and soft.
Over the past few months, I’ve been living in sweatsuits and workout clothes. With Entireworld’s colorful and stylish options, you can still look pulled-together and ready for the day—even if you don’t feel like it.
Honey B Gold is a Latinx-owned jewelry brand, and I just love its layered necklaces. They’re affordable, so I can buy a few and play around with them. This one is fun and very ’90s-inspired.
