I'm really bad at giving gifts because I just buy people things that I want for myself. Christmas lists from family members are meaningless. Taking note of what friends might need for their new apartment is non-existent. I'll probably roll my eyes in private when an email says that you want a new pair of slippers. And whether you like it or not, I will probably buy you that sweater that looked really cute on me at J. Crew because Christmas, for me, is about my need for a guiltless shopping experience. So, in that vein, here's a list of kitchen-related items I'm dying to buy someone this holiday season. Any takers?
1. Stainless Steel Dish Rack by Horne: $495. When your Manhattanite kitchen is approximately 2 square feet, this kind of added storage is lifechanging. Even if it costs almost as much as your rent.
4. Tsar Egg Cups by Imm-living: $26 for 3. One time I was watching Hotel Hell (I adore Gordon Ramsay. We'll talk about it in depth one day.) and he ordered a hard boiled egg at an inn. They served it to him in a cereal bowl and he flipped out. All I could think is if Gordon Ramsay ever comes to my house, I must have an egg cup for him.
5. Lunch with Gordon Ramsay: Priceless... or $135 to eat at The London and pretend he's in my midst. I promise, I will dedicate many-a-post to this man, but until I find the words, let's just daydream about a meal in his presence. Maybe even an awful meal that he'll rip apart (omg, omg!!).
