Best Gifts for a Cherished Friend
Written by Christina Moore

Friends and neighbors are blessings; they let you borrow sugar or salt and keep you informed and protected while living next to them. Therefore, celebrating events and seasons with such friends requires one to get the best gift. 

A gift is a token of appreciation that builds rapport, welcomes new neighbors, says goodbye to friends or neighbors who are moving, appreciates close friends or neighbors, and establishes new acquaintances in the neighborhood.

Want to break the ice with the new neighbor?

Have a friend who is also your best neighbor? Want to appreciate your good neighbor? There are many different gifts out there that will be perfect when there is a special occasion. 

You can get assorted gifts to satisfy this kind of need from various places and sites that mainly focus on gifts to surprise people close to you. Among the best gifts one can give their friends or neighbors are kitchenware. Kitchenware is either functional or acts as a decoration. 

Below are some of the best seven kitchenware ideas that one can gift to friends or neighbors and make them feel great.

Virtual Wine Tasting

Wine tasting brings people together; sharing a drink is a truly friendly experience since it brings people from different backgrounds together, including talented chefs and sommeliers. 

Gifting virtual wine tasting offers friends and neighbors an opportunity to sip and sample flavors from other parts of the world as they make merry, renew friendships and acquire new friends and acquaintances. Moreover, one can surprise their friend or neighbors with items used in wine tasting events, such as a wine and cutting board gift set, or maybe some beautiful wine glasses. 

Cheese Knife Set

A cheese knife set is a great gift that you can gift a friend that loves wine. It is aesthetically pleasing and offers a lot of functionality in the kitchen. It is a perfect gift since it would enable friends and neighbors to handle their cheese in the kitchen with style. Moreover, the set has a cheese board that offers more functionality than pleases the user while working with the set in the kitchen.


What is better than a cookbook that can enhance your friend’s cooking experience? Do your friends and neighbors love the interaction with new cultures and ideas? A cookbook is a thoughtful gift you can surprise your friends or neighbors with since it empowers them with the skills to make wonderful dishes such as Tonkatsu/Pork Cutlets in their kitchen.

Wine Rack and Wine Bottles

Your friend can run out of space to keep their wine bottles; this is where you surprise them with wine racks to enable them to keep their bottles safely. Wine racks equipped with wine bottles are a great gift for the friend on your list. With a wine rack, they can display the bottles of wine that they have bought or received.

Stainless Steel Cookie Press

Do your friends love baking and cooking different dishes? Does your neighbor hate washing dishes after rolling a single meal? Stainless steel is a chef’s best friend since it reduces the cleanup a person must undergo after making simple meals. A friend who loves to bake would greatly appreciate it if they were gifted with stainless cooking ware since it would enable them to save a lot of time wasted in washing other forms of cooking ware.

Private Chef Experience

What is better than giving someone an opportunity to learn how to cook different types of dishes? If your friends and neighbors love cooking, then gifting them a private chef experience is a wonderful opportunity to learn and enjoy exquisite dishes. An intimate chef experience offers one multi-course selection of restaurant-quality gourmet without engaging in routine tasks such as shopping for items, cooking, or washing.

Cocktail Mixer

Do your friends love alcohol? Alcohol is a social drink; it can relieve stress, raises one’s emotions, and makes one friendly and pleasant. Surprising your friends with a cocktail mixer enables them to prepare their homemade concoctions which they can share with you and other friends or family members. This enables the creation of a larger social network for people to build new relationships.
