A cookbook is always a good gift for a beginner cook, and Amanda Cohen, chef and owner of Manhattan’s Dirt Candy, relied on this one when she was in college. “Will you ever cook from it? Well, I did when I was in university, and the approachable recipes were a great way to ease me into the kitchen,” she said, adding, “And for me, it’s almost like a scrapbook, reminding me of when I tried to make Gypsy Soup, of hours spent poring over the recipes for Vegetable and Walnut Pate, Stuffed Eggplant, and Lentil burgers, trying to figure out how to tweak these dishes to make them better, learning from what they were doing, and slowly, page by page, without even knowing it, becoming a chef.”
The perfect tech gift all depends on who you're thinking of gifts for — boyfriend, husband, dad, etc. Is he someone who loves using tech to explore and see things in new ways? Introduce him to the aerial photography craze with our huge selection of drones. Maybe he's more of a hands-on adventurer who'd enjoy capturing his exploits on an action cam.
