It also takes up very little cabinet or counter space. Buy one here.

5. Malt Shop Cookies – Send a personalized gift this holiday season with a Malt Shop Cookies gift bag or tin. They can be completely customized with a picture and message for the recipient. They are currently available in 3 nostalgic flavors: Double Chocolate with Malted Milk, Chocolate Chip with Malted Milk and Mocha Chocolate with Malted Milk. Shop Malt Shop Cookies here.

6. Panasonic FlashXpress Toaster Oven – As empty nesters, we love this small appliance because it is easy to use to make smaller portions without having to heat up the entire kitchen. We especially loved it for “grilled” cheese sandwiches and for this Meat Loaf Sandwich recipe. Buy one here.

  1. The malt shop cookies is such a fun and yummy gift! I think anyone who would get that would be really a happy person!

  2. The toaster oven is my favorite! I wish I could get my husband a food dehydrator to make his own jerky this year, but it looks expensive.

  3. I have literally never heard of the Lux 3 in 1 multi cooker! What an awesome appliance. Defiantly something to think about when I’m shopping for my foodie friends!

  4. paige chandler says

    I want to scarf the malt shop cookies. I love a good thick malt and would love one in cookie form. drool

  12. I love my ninja! It’s the best gift I have ever gotten myself. I bought it about 5 or 6 years ago and use it almost on a daily basis.

  13. Karen Glatt says

    The toaster oven would be a big help. I don’t like using the oven most of the time. It just makes the house too hot. This would be nice to try.

  21. Oh the Ninja is a must have on our list. That is such a great handy tool that means you can get rid of some bulky old ones! The toaster oven would be awesome as well.

  22. This is a great list! I never heard of a multi-cooker and now I want one! And need to upgrade that mixer and oh the toaster oven!

  23. Elaine Lund says

    Wow! The toaster oven caught my eye because I do not have one. When I first saw it, I thought it was a microwave. Toaster ovens are great for when you want to cook a smaller portion and don’t have to use the regular oven to do so.

  24. Kimberly Flickinger says

    I know my mother could use the toaster oven; whereas I would settle for the homemade chocolate bon bons. Thank you for sharing.

  34. Lindsey Paris says

    I can totally use a new toaster oven! These look great and mine is totally out of date for what I need it to do.

  35. Elle Tucker says

    Oh my gosh that LUX 3-In-1 Multi-Cooker!
    A slow cooker, pressure cooker, *and* a yogurt maker?
    I’d probably travel with the machine when I went home during winter and summer breaks ๐Ÿ˜€

  36. That lux multi cooker is cool!!! I could make my own yogurt, which I didn’t know was possible in a short amount of time and it can make me perfect rice!

  37. I would love the LUX 3-In-1 Multi-Cooker. It has so many uses I might have to get two ๐Ÿ™‚
