    Do they all like to cook/bake?

    If they like cooking even a bit, then YES!  I love Anthrpologie aprons, even though I am not a huge cook, and it is the kind of indulgence I prob wouldn’t purchase for myself.  Great idea!

    If you got me a cookbook I’d be insulted. I hate cooking, so it would be like you didn’t know me at ALL if you got me one. That’s like getting a vacume from my spouse.

    I’m not a fan of this idea, even if they do like to cook/bake. I got a super cute apron for Christmas, but I never use it because I have my cheap old nothing special apron that I don’t mind if it gets dirty. The other apron is just sitting in my coat closet and will probably never be used. As for the cook book, well, if you already cook/bake, you probably already have your favorite cookbooks, I know I do. I’ve gotten many cookbooks in the past as gifts and perhaps skimmed through them once or twice, but they usually end up on a shelf. So yeah, I’m not a fan just since I don’t think I would use them (and I am in love with my kitchen), but if you think your girls would have use for them then get it!

    @MsTargaryen:  Maybe along with a cookbook, some fancy ingredients? Like…mmm espresso or fig balsamic vinegar, or fancy olive oil, or saffron…

    I like the cookbook, but I never use aprons, so it would be a nice thought, but put in the back of the pantry with extra towels and such.

    You may also want to be careful with the girls who say they wish they cooked more. I say that all the time to my friends who enjoy it, but the truth is, I don’t cook because I don’t want to. It’s a nice gift, but I wouldn’t really use it. I’d keep looking!
