Get her a set of nice mixing bowls, some wooden spoons and a handheld blender. Put the blender in the largest mixing bowl, along with all the dry ingredients (measured out and mixed together) for homemade brownies and a handwritten recipe card telling her how to make them. =)

 

Orrrrr you could get her a crockpot, and include cans of different types of beans, stewed tomatos, etc and some spices so she could make her own chili.

 

Orrrrrrrrrrrrrr (not exactly practical) you could get her a sushi making kit and include the rice and “recipes” for several of the popular easy kinds of sushi…..

 

Orrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr you could get her a blender, and some margarita mix, and a thing of rum or vodka and a drink recipes book. =)

 

I’m all about the gift-within-a-gift thing, can you tell?

well dishes or glasses are always needed when starting off, so that could be safe. Otherwise I would sat either pots and pans, or a kitchen gift “bowl” where maybe you buy a mixing bowl and include measuring spoons, measuring cups, a cute towel, maybe some washcloths (just little kitchen basics that can fit in the bowl). It all depends on what price range your looking for, but I would think sticking to the basics is safest because everyone needs those things.

Does she like wine?? You could do a wine themed basket. (I loove wine =) )  A bottle or wine, wine glasses (white & red), an electric wine opener (they are awesome!) and a Vinturi red wine aerator (they make a 100% diff with red wine).

Or coffee… a coffee make, coffee mugs (you could have their names or Mr & Mrs put on them) and some good coffee.. 

Or you could do kitchen linens.. Dishclothes, sponges, drying towels, a cute apron (recently a lot have come out  that are pretty and cute titles “Kitchen Diva, etc.) and oven mits, you could do some solid colors and then season fun ones.. 

you could also give her an aloe plant, to treat her burns as she learns some cooking/baking skills =)

If the theme is kitchen is everyone bringing a recipe to give to the couple for their recipe box/book?

I would suggest some bowls! I love to cook and never have enough mixing bowls. Pretty much anything one makes needs some mixing bowls.

Many people dont think about this but my mom does it often. How about a laundry basket full of cleaners? Everyone needs a clean kitchen and especially people starting out dont know the best brands.

As someone who likes to cook, I would say one good chef’s knife. A good one will be expensive enough. If you can afford a set, they arent good enough! Also get a sharpener. 

Even a non-cook will appreciate a sharp knife as it lasts forever!

I would suggest these

and this

Cookie sheets, muffin tins, two 9×9 square pans and a loaf pan. Rubber spatulas, measuring cups and spoons, mixing bowls with a rubber base. A gift certificate for her local grocery store so she can stock up her pantry!

If it was me receiving the gift, I would love a fabulous set of mixing bowls and new measuring cups. And a fabulous spatula. And silicone baking mats. 🙂

 I just recieved a thermal tote from one of my friends from a thirty one purpse party and she had it personalized with my new initial of my last name! I love it! could fill it with a casserole dish and hot/cold pack if you wanted!

I agree with “good chef’s knife”. A GOOD knife (Wusthof, Shun, etc.) is amazing.

My mom used to always give a nice set of mixing bowls (like 4-6 sizes) and a set of three Pyrex measuring cups (1 cup, 2 cup and 6 cup). Maybe throw in some measuring spoons and the smaller measuring cups. She’ll use them tons, even if she doesn’t cook much.
