Have you started making you holiday to-do list and wondering what gift to give for the chicken lover in your life? Look no further than our PopWorms! Chicken Cheer Holiday Gift Guide! We have already covered gifts for the coop and items that make egg collection easier and more fun! This week’s focus is on items for the kitchen. Because eggs are used for all meals from breakfast to dinner, and nibbling that happens in between, it makes sense to have kitchen tools to make cooking egg-based meals easier. I love chickens and I definitely love cooking and eating eggs, so I am excited to share my list of ten, low-cost gear and gadgets that will help you answer the question of what to give your coop keeping friends (or anyone who just loves eggs) for Christmas!
1. Oversized Decorative Kitchen Towels
These embroidered towels are super cute, super absorbent, and also dry quickly. They come in a set of 3 towels with a charming farmhouse patchwork design and chicken silhouettes. They are also made of 100% cotton that should stand up to multiple washes.
2. Chicken Shaped Oven Mitt and Hot Pad
This set is so adorable and would make a nice, whimsical addition to kitchen decoration, while also being functional. They are made of 100% cotton, and are heat resistant and machine washable. Both the oven mitt and the hot pad are designed in really fun chicken shapes, and would be great add-ons with the towels (both are made by Design Imports). I want a set for myself (hint hint)!
3. Farmhouse Chicken Chef Bib Apron
Make the ensemble complete with this delightful chef’s apron! The apron is made of 100% cotton and features a charming design including chickens, chicken footprints, hearts, and polka dots. There is also a useful and fashionable red front pocket that accents the red ties and neck strap. This gift will add style with practicality!
4. Ceramic Chicken Measuring Spoons
Add charm to the kitchen while measuring out those small amounts of ingredients! These measuring spoons are neat gifts for chicken lovers and would make great hostess gifts. The set comes with 1-Tbsp, 1-tsp, ½-tsp and ¼-tsp measuring spoons as well as a chicken shaped holder for the spoons that make for a playful kitchen display.
5. Nested Hen and Chick Dry Measuring Cups
The measuring cups from Fred & Friends comes in a set of 6 that measure from ¼ cup to a full cup. The nested cups are true to their name and all fit inside each other for easy storage. But when needed, the one-cup “mother hen” can be opened to reveal an egg with a little chick inside, followed by another. They are made of food-safe plastic and provide accurate measurements for dry ingredients. Buy these with the chicken measuring spoons to make it a complete set!
6. Electric Egg Cooker
Whipping up boiled eggs is now fast and easy! This Chefman electric egg cooker allows cooking eggs in a variety of ways. With this gadget you can make poached eggs, omelets, and even soft, medium or hard boiled in minutes. It also comes with a tray lifting tool for easy removal without burning your hands. An included piercing tool and measuring cup that allows piercing shells without breaking. There is also a nifty buzzer to alert when the cooking is finished. Also, the compact size is perfect for dorms or offices.
7. Silicone Egg Rings Non Stick Fried Egg Mold
This gift will allow your friend to whip up fluffy, perfectly shaped eggs for egg sandwiches, eggs benedict, or omelets every time! These are made of food-grade silicone so they are easy to clean and also eco-friendly. They come in a pack of four in different colors. They are reusable and also dishwasher safe. They have a handle that can be wiggled to see when ready. Your friends will love the fact that these egg rings are totally non-stick, so there will be no more scratched pans!
8. Egg Peeler
Have you ever tried to peel a freshly boiled egg only to lose half of the egg with the shell? Me too! Ugh! This nifty little gadget is a must have for any kitchen. This is one that you don’t think you need until you get it. It is the ultimate time and temper saver! With this egg peeler, All you need to do is add a little water in the peeler, enclose the egg inside, and shake it a few times to remove the peel. And a nice bonus is that after the shell is off, you can use the egg slicer that comes with the peeler! Two gifts in one that could also make great stocking stuffers!
9. Snap ‘N Stack 2-Layer Food Storage Container with Egg Holder Trays
This is something that I wanted for years and finally got…and I love! If your friend is always making deviled eggs and bringing them to the party on paper plates, then this is the perfect gift. The Snapware egg holder holds deviled eggs or whole eggs safely in place for transport to potlucks or parties. The set includes 2 egg holders that can hold up to 24 eggs and a plastic lid, all of which are microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe. The egg holder inserts can also be removed and the container can be used to hold or transport other foods as well. Another bonus is that Snapware plastic products come with a limited lifetime warranty against manufacturer defect.
