Gift Ideas for Foodies Here are some ways you can beef up your kitchen in time to prepare large holiday feasts, and some ideas to help you shop for the chefs and foodies in your life.

Cutting Boards The right cutting board should last for decades, neither warping nor splitting. It should also not dull one’s knives. Seek out a cutting board that is stable on your countertop and will respond well to your particular set of knives. Maintain wooden cutting boards by regularly oiling them in order to reduce their porousness. For meats, look for highquality plastic cutting boards, which are easy to sanitize. Just be sure to toss these cutting boards after they are worn out, as they are more prone to harbor bacteria after wear and tear. High-Quality Cookware Go-to staples need to be high-quality and highlyfunctional. A fry pan, for instance, should heat evenly, be very responsive to temperature, and ideally be er-

Good knives are the foundation of a well-equipped kitchen. No other tool will improve the joy of cooking quite like a good chef’s knife. A dull, awkward knife is not only a hassle to use, but dangerous too. Both advanced chefs and beginner cooks will benefit from top-quality high-carbon, stainless steel knives, such as the new Hammer Stahl 6-inch chef knife and the 5.5-inch Santoku knife. Made in the tradition of the great German knife makers, the handles are ergonomically designed with a comfortable grip to reduce fatigue. All Hammer Stahl knives are heirloom quality and guaranteed for life. For more information, visit hammerstahl.com/holidaygiftguide.

Space-saving, versatile and affordable, an immersion blender is perfect for any cook, however many people find their kitchens without one. Perfect for creating smooth purees, soups, and pesto, they also require less clean-up than full-size blenders or food processors, Courtesy of StatePoint

gonomic. While great cookware such as this usually comes with a premium price tag, you can usually capitalize on good deals at this time of year. For example, Hammer Stahl, an American made kitchenware brand known for quality and performance, is currently offering a two-piece set of stainless steel multi-clad fry pans (8.5-inch and 10.5inch) with a lifetime warranty at half the regular price, giving holiday shoppers an opportunity to affordably stock up kitchens with premier go-to pans. Great for frying, sautéing, searing and browning, their flat bottoms and curved sides make tossing and flipping food easy.

MAKE IT A DATE

Holiday shopping should be a joy Consumer Reports notes that individuals spend a great deal of time shopping for gifts come the holiday season. Americans engage in 15 hours of shopping on average, with women spending twice as long as their male counterparts

(20 hours versus 10). In addition, the average person devotes 10 or more hours to wrapping and returning gifts. One way to tackle holiday shopping without sacrificing time with family and friends is to make holi-

day shopping a social event. ● Invite friends or family along. Recreate the days of your youth when it was fun to meet friends at the mall and scour the shops. Plan a meeting location and have an itinerary in place. Divide shopping lists so that every-

one shares the task of shopping and fatigue doesn’t set in prematurely. ● Make lunch or dinner part of the day. Incorporate refueling into your shopping plans. Failure to eat or drink can lead to hunger pangs and test shoppers’ pa-

tience, two factors that are seldom conducive to successful shopping. Having an end goal to meet friends or family at a nearby restaurant — even a dining location right within the mall — can inspire intrepid shoppers to get their work done promptly. Reward yourself for a job well done over a tasty meal and maybe a cocktail. Just be sure to indulge responsibly. ● Break up the day with a flick. Many malls also play home to movie theaters. Plan your shopping

around the movie schedule so you can take a twohour break to rest and relax in the theater. Chances are you’ll come out of the film relaxed, refreshed and ready to tackle the rest of your shopping list. ● Make it a date night. The thought of shopping may not conjure up ideas of romance, but if time is short, couples can use shopping excursions as an opportunity to spend time together. Metro Creative

W hile holiday shop pers are of ten enthusiastic about finding great gifts for their loved ones, many are decidedly less excited about wrapping those gifts. Many holiday shoppers spend hours wrapping gifts each year, and as gift lists grow, so does the amount of time needed to get all of those presents w rapped, hidden, pa ck aged a nd/or shipped. Shoppers can employ t he fol low i n g strateg ies to make the process go much more smoothly and to reduce gif t w rap-related anxiety. ● Relearn the basics. Some people may think they know how to wrap g i f t s , on ly t o re a l i z e it’s harder than it looks once the paper, scissors and Scotch tape comes out. Relearn the basics

by viewing online tutorials prior to wrapping gifts so the lessons learned remain fresh in your mind. Learn how to wrap standard clothing gift boxes and recognize that such boxes can often be used to house oddly-shaped items. ● Wrap as you buy. Instead of getting bogged down with wrapping all in one evenin g , w rap presents as you purchase them. This ensures that you don’t leave ever ything for the last minute and reduces the likelihood that curious kids or inquisitive spouses discover gifts before the big day. ● Work on a hard surface.

Sounds of the Season

Pet Presents

Christmas songs provide the soundtrack for holiday magic. Such songs evoke strong feelings in people, and various songs have become staples at holiday celebrations. Some interesting facts and history surround many popular Christmas songs. “White Christmas,” for example, is the best-selling Christmas song of all time. However, “Silent Night”is the most recorded Christmas song in history, says TIME. “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” is considered a jolly song, but songwriter James Gillespie was unemployed and had just lost his brother prior to writing the song. Still, he was able to look past his grief to pen the classic. Many are unaware that “Jingle Bells” originally was supposed to be a Thanksgiving song. While many beloved Christmas songs have been around for decades, one artist managed to tap into the success of classic Christmas music. Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is a popular modern-day Christmas song.

Pets are cherished members of the family, and many pet parents choose to purchase gifts for their animal companions. According to a survey conducted by Rover.com, 95 percent of pet owners have purchased Christmas gifts for their pets. While Christmas is the most popular holiday to buy presents for pets, pet owners also buy presents for their pets’ birthdays and for Valentine’s Day.

gifts from another’s. This can keep things more organized when sorting and visiting with friends and relatives later on. ● Keep gif t bags on hand. Gift bags work in a pinch and make it easy to conceal gifts that are hard to w rap. Curious loved ones c an ea sily peak inside gift bags, so be sure to wrap gifts in tissue paper before placing them in the bags. ● Less is usually more. Do not use too much paper when wrapping; otherwise, you will be lef t with bulky, sloppy folds. B e f or e t r i m m i n g t he gift wrap from the roll, check that it overlaps the ends of the box by just a couple of inches. A sturdy paper will help you achieve crisper folds and prevent tears when w rapping.

This ensures there won’t be any wrinkles in the paper and that you won’t lose supplies in the bedspread. ● R el y on double sided tape.

Store wrapping paper, scissors, tags, tape, ribbons, and whatever else you may need to w rap g if ts in one convenient location. This cuts down on time wasted hunting for supplies around the house. ● Draw on plain gif t boxes.
