Do your foodie friend a favor and get them a gift this holiday season that they'll be excited to use. Whether they like trying new recipes, throwing dinner parties, collecting cookbooks or spending their Sundays planning out meals for the week, these gifts for the home chef show you care. 

If they don't already have an Instant Pot, it seems like a no-brainer to get them the latest and greatest Instant Pot Duo Nova ($79 on Amazon) that's an upgrade from their most popular Duo model. It acts as seven appliances in one: a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker and warmer, and comes with 14 smart buttons for worry-free cooking. But, if your loved one is more advanced and can really handle the heat of the kitchen, consider their personal cooking routine before making a purchase. 

Like most home chefs, your loved one probably already has the basics—a knife set, dishes, utensils, pots and pans—but with everyday wear and tear, they can always use an upgrade. However, if you want to get them something to make their life a tad easier, you can't go wrong with a hand blender, silicone baking sheets or a Home Chef gift card (hey, even pros need a hand sometimes).
