KD Finds: Claire Thomas's Five Favorites

It's nearly time to don your hostess hat and prepare for holiday entertaining. We asked Claire Thomas, the blogger behind The Kitchy Kitchen and TV host of ABC's Food For Thought, for her must-haves this season, and she shared her five favorite things right now.

1. Wine Wraps

"Wine related products tend to be on the stuffy side," Claire points out. "Well, it’s time for wine to get fun, and my friend Whitney is just the woman to do it." Shop powder-coated wine openers, tie-dyed cocktail napkins and chic gifting ideas, like these eye-popping bottle wrappers, at Whitney's new site Bottle Stock. "I’m so excited for her and absolutely adore her products. I’m sure you will, too."

2. Egg Press Apron

"Whether you're grilling chopping or baking, every chef in the kitchen needs to keep clean," says Claire. "These lovely aprons by Egg Press do just the trick without 'kiss the cook' kitsch."

3. Jadeite Cake Stand

"When you go to the trouble to make a show-stopping cake, you need accessories to match. Vintage inspired jadeite cake platters and cake knives are a gorgeous way to go," shares Claire.

4. Sabre Tart Server and Cake Knife

"For whatever dessert situation you find yourself in, you can find this fun and modern server and knife in literally ANY color. Such an unexpected pop of color in any kitchen," Claire tells us.

5. Silpat Baking Mat

"Silpats are a kitchen life saver for me," Claire reveals. "They prevent even the most delicate dishes from sticking, are reusable and super easy to clean."
