10 Best Gifts for Kids Who Like to Cook
Here’s my list of the 10 best gifts for Kids Who Like to Cook. I’ve included a variety of gifts and price ranges in this guide so that there’s something for everyone.
Some of my favorite memories from raising our girls were made around our kitchen table. Of course we gathered at the kitchen table for our family meals, but we also gathered there to work on craft projects and to roll out and decorate cookies.
Every Christmas we’d spend hours laughing — while usually making a huge mess — as we made batches of Ginger Cookies and decorated sugar cookies. Those were such fun times that I can’t wait until our little granddaughter is big enough to help me make a mess — I’m worse than the kids! — in the kitchen, too!

Child Chef Starter Kit
Kids will love baking with these colorful measuring spoons and cooking utensils by Curious Chef. This cute gift set comes with a fun yellow apron, a balloon whisk, star cookie cutter, large silicone mixing spatula, and spoon. All Curious Chef products are designed with safety in mind and conform to recommended requirements by the US Consumer Products Safety Commission.
Cut Resistant Gloves for Kids
No more cuts or scrapes! A great idea for kids (8-12 Years) or even adults with small hands, these no-cut gloves have a superior grip with a snug, elastic fit. Wear them when prepping food or when working on craft projects involving scissors or paper cutters, as an extra precaution to keep kid's hands from slipping.
Smiley Face Pancake Pan
Breakfast pancakes like these are almost too fun to eat! This Emoji Mini Pancake and Flapjack Maker is easy-to-clean with its nonstick coating, plus it as a cool-to-the-touch handle to help protect little fingers from getting burned
Smiley Face Nylon Flex Turner
This is just too cute! This smiley face turner is nylon so it won't scrape up non-stick pans or griddles. Kids will enjoy using it to flip pancakes or remove cookies (like these yummy Chocolate Drop Cookies) from baking sheets. I think this would be a fun stocking stuffer for your little baker!
Kids Apron and Chef Hat Set
Kids will have fun wearing this chef hat and apron while helping in the kitchen or even when doing craft paint projects. It can also help protect little clothes from getting stained if you have messy little cooks (I'm a messy big cook!).
Sandwich Cookie Cutters for Kids
These soft-grip cutters are easy to handle for little hands and come in 10 fun shapes, including Mickey Mouse, Dinosaur, Heart, Star, Flower, and a Christmas Tree. Use them to cut out homemade sugar cookies or to cut the crust off sandwiches, and more.
