It’s here! I’m SO excited to share the annual Ambitious Kitchen Holiday Gift Guide. If you’ve been an AK reader for a while, you know that putting these gift guides together is truly a labor of love for the team and I. We hand-select each product that goes into these 6 guides to fill them with thoughtful, unique gifts that are perfect for everyone on your list.
They’re the kind of gifts that will make people say, “where’d you get that?!” and ones that we already have in our carts for family, friends, and those hard-to-shop-for people.
Skip the stress this holiday season and start shopping for all of your people now! These guides will help make shopping a breeze this year.
Take a scroll and then click through to see all of the gifts in each guide! I hope you love these as much as we do. Enjoy, xoxo!
Gifts for Him
Let’s be real — shopping for men is HARD. That’s probably why every year our “Gifts for Him” guide is the most popular! We scoured the internet, talked to husbands, brothers and dads, and hand-picked 35 amazing, unique gifts for all of the guys on your list.
You’ll find some (maybe much-needed) wardrobe updates for his closet, a few home & kitchen gadgets he’ll obsess over, and more.
Gifts for her
Over 30 carefully curated, amazing gifts for all of the ladies in your life! The team and I had so much fun putting this gift guide together, probably because it’s made up of our own holiday wish lists.
In this “Gifts for Her” guide, you’ll find everything from cozy sweaters and staple jewelry to great books and her new favorite mug.
Gifts for the Foodie, Home Cook & Entertainer
In true Ambitious Kitchen fashion, we had to dedicate one of our gift guides to foodies, home cooks and entertainers! This guide is amazing for friends and family who may have moved recently, newlyweds, or just people who love to cook, bake, or host.
We curated the best of the best in home and kitchen gadgets, plus some of our fav cookbooks, decor, and small appliances.

Unique Gifts Under $50 for Everyone on Your List
Every year we have people on our list that seem to be impossible to shop for. Maybe it’s a boss or coworker you don’t know super well, a friend who seems to have everything or your mom who happens to be incredibly picky. That’s where this gift guide comes in!
We love pulling together these affordable, unique gifts under $50 that are perfect for anyone and everyone on your list.

Gifts for Toddlers, Babies & New Mamas
Your new mama and parent friends are going to love you for this amazing gift guide. Whenever I poll the AK audience about gift guides, one of the most requested ones is for new parents, babies and kids!
I love putting this one together because I get to include tons of things that Sidney and Viggo are loving lately.

We’re so excited to highlight amazing small businesses this holiday season! Shop small and get ready to share some incredible stories.
