Shopping for last-minute Christmas gifts can be a stressful endeavour. However, it doesn't have to be if you approach it from a practical perspective.
Why not opt for Christmas presents with a more functional and relatable purpose this year?
We consider four essential kitchen accessories that will take the hassle out of brainstorming ideas for last-minute gifts.
1. Magnetic Knife Rack
It’s time to dispense with the traditional wooden knife block and consider the convenience of a magnetic knife rack — where all your coveted cooking knives can be kept in one spot without occupying ample room.
The concealed slots of a traditional wooden knife block harbour germs more quickly and tend to dull your knives faster. A magnetic knife rack, however, allows for open-air drying and encounters less friction.
Freeing up valuable counter space, our space-saving Kenzo Magnetic Knife Rack has a pleasing minimalistic design and is available in four striking finishes to match your tapware and other kitchen accessories. It would make the perfect Christmas gift for cooking lovers.
2. Kitchen Sink Drainer
Speaking of freeing up bench space, it’s worth considering the efficient benefits of a foldable sink drainer for a last-minute Christmas gift.
Our Penelope Fold Mat has a slim, slitted mat design that conveniently rolls out above the surface of your kitchen sink with rubber grips to ensure your dishes sit securely.
It is beneficial for a compact kitchen, as it enables you to dry dishes and cutlery without cluttering valuable space and avoids any issues of watermarking your benchtop due to the water draining directly into the sink.
3. Kitchen Sink Colander
Kitchen colanders can often be an overlooked kitchen accessory. However, they are excellent for washing produce, straining other food items, and storing cleaning implements such as scourers or washing up liquid containers.
Colanders can either rest over your sink or fit within the bowl. Their multi-purpose function can reduce the number of utensils you need to buy, and they provide a hygienic platform.
Constructed specifically for an ABI stainless steel sink, our Felicity Kitchen Sink Colander Accessory features a unique, contemporary design. It comes in four different finishes to help suit your colour palette. This convenient kitchen gift idea requires no installation, can be used on other sinks, and is ready to transform this space into a functional powerhouse.
4. Hand Towel Holder
Hand towel holders are arguably one of the most underrated kitchen accessories. These multipurpose fixtures free up space, add extra storage to your kitchen and are a kitchen accessory you don’t realise you need until you install one.
Our Elysian Hand Towel Holder is a compact, single-rail holder with a sleek, modern design that can function best above a sink or close to an oven due to being high-mess areas that require accessibility to cleaning products. It is available in six finishes to help revitalise the look and efficiency of kitchen spaces.
Kitchenware gift ideas are more considerate experiences as they correlate with our homes. For more interior design advice during the festive season, check out:
