They say the kitchen is the heart of the home—so why not gift the foodie in your life a little something they can make use of?

Buying a loved one a little something for their kitchen is a foolproof gift idea no matter the occasion. Whether it's for a family member's upcoming birthday, a sit-down dinner a friend is hosting, or even a housewarming party, everyone can use a new gadget, tool, or device that maximizes their culinary experience. And the good news is there are plenty of thoughtful and unique presents for every kind of cook.

The key to buying the best kitchen gift goes beyond picking up a typical blender or coffee machine. You want something that's functional, but also a little out of the ordinary—like a blender with cool multi-functional features or a coffee machine that leaves the perfect layer of foam on your espresso.

From do-it-all machines for those just dipping their toes in cooking to avid home chefs who've already mastered the art of spatchcocking a chicken, here are 30 of the best kitchen gifts every person on your list will get endless use of.

What doesn't this kitchen appliance do? It perfectly crisps potatoes, broils salmon, roasts chicken, reheats leftovers, and dehydrates snacks at a super fast rate. Just pop whatever you're making into the basket and watch as your meal cooks in mere minutes.

If baking is their love language, they're going to need the best—and by that we mean a tricked-out stand mixer that beats small and large batches of cookie batter, kneads bread dough, and whips up the perfectly creamy frostings.

We love this toaster for several reasons. The first being the sleek 1950s appeal it adds to modern kitchens. It also comes in various delightful colors that look great on all countertops. And lastly, the fact it was designed with extra long slots to fit four slices of bread or an extra-long country loaf.

Cooking rice is perhaps one of the hardest dishes to master in the kitchen, but this state-of-the-art rice cooker makes the process easier than ever. Using advanced technology, it allows the user to adjust cooking times and temperature as needed so that each batch is perfectly plump and fluffy.

Rich, frothy coffee at the simple tap of a button? Now that's music to every caffeine fiend's ears.

What avid home cook wouldn't love the option of growing their own herbs and veggies straight from the kitchen counter year-round? Plus, this hydroponic system requires no dirt!

There are kitchen aprons, and then there are kitchen aprons from Minna, which are handwoven in San Antonio Palopó, Guatemala and are smartly designed with two large functional pockets for storing wooden spoons, a meat thermometer, and other useful items for cooking.

Mismatched food containers often get a bad rap for being eye-sores, but not this set! Caraway food storage boxes are clean-looking, built with an Air Release Technology to keep leftovers fresh and odor-free, and they even come with an organizational rack for keeping your cabinets neat and tidy.

Take their tastebuds to Greece with this delicious trio of infused extra virgin olive oil. Featured flavors include Garlic, Greek Herb & Lemon, and Spicy Red Pepper—all perfect for upgrading any dish.

Called "The Iconics" for a reason, this kit features 10 essential cooking tools—including knives, spoons, and a whisky—all housed in a wooden base that'll look great in the kitchen.

Brightland is best known for its Instagrammable bottles filled with cold pressed olive oil, but don't sleep on the vinegar either. A light drizzle of the double-fermented balsamic or champagne vinegar on salads or cheese plates are *chef's kiss*.

A low-maintenance plant to zhuzh up their kitchen countertops will be a very much appreciated present.

No kitchen is complete without a cast iron dutch oven from Le Creuset. The fan-favorite pot can do it all, from roasting to simmering to baking to everything in between.

This isn't just any run-of-the-mill blender; it's a blender that has 10 variable speeds and uses aircraft-grade stainless steel blades that allow you to blend, puree, and mix soups, dips, and smoothies with precision.

Gone are the days of buying lettuce only for it to wilt two days later. This OXO container slows down the process of aging produce with carbon filter traps that absorb ethylene gas, keeping your fruits and veggies fresher longer.

Perhaps matcha is their choice of caffeine? The Cuzen machine makes brewing their favorite matcha a cinch. And just imagine how sleek it'll look on their countertop?

For the serious cook, treat them to a personalized cookbook for jotting down their famous recipes.

Maybe it's time that dishware set they were given all those years ago got an upgrade. Enter: Leeway Home. The homeware brand offers a clean selection of everything-you-need sets for setting the table and serving in style.

Sure, they might already have a set of pots and pans, but is it as good as Made in Cookware's premium collection?! This 6-piece stainless steel, non-stick set has more than 20,000 five-star reviews and comes with two frying pans, a sauce pan, and stock pot, ideal for cooking just about anything.

This mini but mighty personalized blender uses a 900-watt motor base that perfectly blends smoothies, salad dressings, and more to perfection. The brand also recently unveiled four new muted colors (such as this jade green hue) that makes a soothing kitchen accent when not in use.
