There is no better time of the year than around the holidays to get some new goodies for your kitchen. You might be hosting a meal, or having guests over so why not grab some of those items you've been wanting.

These must-have kitchen items will make your holidays run much smoother and more efficient, believe me!

Holidays are a fun time of year. Some of these things are definitely just used more often during the holidays, but there is something special about getting holiday versions of the items below.

Check out this list of kitchen essentials. They make great holiday gifts, too!



Holiday Dish Towels

Oh how I love me some dish towels! And although I don't buy them as often as I'd like (cue hubby's voice: “Do you really need another dish towel?”) I do reserve a few special ones for the holidays.

Pumpkins, fall leaves and Christmas Trees are among some of my favorites. Oh and this new one I picked up last month. Loving the simple and clean red and white stripes.

A Good Dessert Recipe

Every holiday season needs yummy desserts and of course you need your kitchen to make those. Fun desserts like some of these Gotta Try Desserts, or some of your old tried and true ones.

Every year a bunch of us gals get together and make cookies to all be divided up and enjoyed for the holiday season. I love homemade cookies, but can safely say that after the holidays I don't wanna see a cookie for a few months!

Candy Dishes

Whether your big on candy or not (come on, think about your guests, ha ha!) setting out a small dish for candy is pretty common this time of year. We have one in the shape of a snowman, but I've seen so many cute ones.

Finding a candy dish with a lid is always a good idea if you want to sorta keep it hidden, for your own sake. I know if I see candy I want it! Of course you can remove the lid when guests arrive.

Holiday Platters

Festive holiday platters are always a must when serving the meal as you need a place to put your meat of choice. Ham, turkey, beef, chicken, lamb, or whatever you might fix for that holiday meal.

Having a holiday platter that's a little larger than your regularly used platters is helpful, otherwise you'll find yourself having to use two or three to hold all.that.meat.

An Electric Knife

An electric knife was a staple in my Mom's kitchen but yet I only saw her use it a few times a year. Thanksgiving, Christmas and sometimes to slice up homemade bread. Not everyone likes using one, but I love mine!

Makes cutting that bird (or pig, or cow) a whole lot faster and easier. We've had this one for years and love it! Definitely something I recommend every kitchen needs this holiday season!


Deviled Egg Holder

I've had one of these for a few years now and love it. Before my deviled eggs would slide around on the plate every time I moved them. This little sucker keeps them right in place, until your family is ready to eat them.

If you are more into serving them on a festive plate this deviled egg plate is perfect for that.

Hors d'oeuvres Platter

No festivities are complete with hors d'oeuvres, right? Well that's how it is in my family. Usually it's simple like cheese and crackers, or veggies and dip. Sometimes little smokies and chips.

No matter what one puts out, having a nice hors d'oeuvres platter is a must for any entertaining you do.

Cookie Cutters

To make those delicious Christmas cookies everyone loves, you need some festive shaped cookie cutters. I think we have them all: Santa, Frosty, Rudolph, Candy Cane, Bell, Sleigh, Teddy Bear, Star, Tree…and about 20 other shapes as well!

If you are not into making cookies, these cute cookie cutters can be used as napkin rings, or ornaments for the tree, or put on packages as decoration.


Hot Cocoa Mugs

Now I have quite the collection of coffee mugs myself, but there's something special about holiday cocoa mugs that the kids really get a kick out of. Definitely something fun to have in your kitchen.
