Take the frustration out of your chef's prepping with this clever gadget. Four different-sized holes easily strip herbs such as rosemary, thyme, sage and more off the stem. The herbs then collect in the integrated bowl that features handy measurement markings.
You may not know what these are for, but your favorite baker friend surely will. With almost 500 five-star reviews, these clever little ceramic beads are perfectly designed to hold pie crust in place for blind baking (i.e. baking a crust before the filling is added). No more shrinking, bubbly pie crusts here, folks!

For an even easier way to mix up a decadent drink, gift a pack of infused ice cubes. Once frozen, all that's needed for a tasty cocktail is the user's liquor of choice. And with options like a blood orange old-fashioned or sumptuously sweet Negroni, you're bound to find a winning flavor.
Make their bed a little more luxurious with a 100-percent mulberry silk pillowcase, which can improve skin and hair. With 19 momme count, Alaska Bear's silk pillowcase is one of the best affordable options we've tested, and we love that it comes with a zipper closure so it won't slip off.
If you're having trouble picking out the perfect puzzle for your recipient who loves puzzles, this roll-away mat is the perfect accessory to gift.

You can truly never go wrong with a candle, especially a top-rated favorite like this Capri Blue Volcano scent that has notes of tropical fruits, sugared oranges, lemons and limes. Plus, it comes in a chic vessel that they can reuse as a decorative votive or storage container after burning through the candle.
It's hot chocolate season! Whether you have a chocolate lover in your life or someone who enjoys experimenting in the kitchen, gift them this cool mold. They simply brush melted chocolate onto the silicone mold, and once it’s hardened, fill the domes with cocoa mix.
It may not be an exact guide to the perfect Bloody Mary, but these clever glasses will definitely please all the brunch aficionados on your list. Plus, since these cuties are sold as a set of two — that's one for a friend and one for you!
