  1. Writing down recipes, converting measurements and doing quantity math – a kitchen notebook saves an entrepreneur from doing it all on a napkin. Because it’s a lot more dangerous to get grease on your iPad.
  2. Plastic salad spinners simply don’t last forever. Get something your foodpreneur can beat up and put in the dishwasher. This stainless steel salad spinner is Laurie Mayers from Raging Squirrel Bakery‘s favorite.
  3. Reading about food after a day in the kitchen? Uh, yeah, we actually do that. This inspiring memoir traces the coming-of-age of chef Amy Thielen from the Midwest to New York and back again. It’s funny, sharp, and a great read to curl up with this winter.
  4. Portable Maldon salt. Purse, pocket, apron. Finish and go. It’s adorable AND useful. (Conversely, they also sell it in a 3.3lb tub, for the cured-meat hobbyist in your life.)
  5. Anyone who shares a kitchen knows that scissors disappear faster than almost any other item. Get your maker the best scissors that $19 can buy – they’re dishwasher safe, super sharp, and can cut just about anything – even bones.
  6. These clips may not look like much, but they consistently save the day in the kitchen. They attach to clipboards, shirt pockets, belts, notebooks, and more. Keep your pen handy and stop losing it all the time.
