Le Creuset’s Salt and Pepper Mills ($79) come in 11 stylish colours and is the perfect addition to a table setting or spice collection. They are carefully designed to grind salt and crack peppercorns with its corrosion-resistant ceramic grinder, and are built to last a lifetime, blending in seamlessly on the dinner table or the countertop.

If you know someone who loves to host, then get them this Complete Box & Serving Board Combo from the Carnivore Club ($100). Not only does it come with an organic Moso bamboo serving board that is fully equipped with a subtle “hide-and-slide” drawer (which holds four stainless steel cheese knives, four serving forks, two slate markers, and two chalk pencils for labeling the various meats and cheeses), but it also comes with two handcrafted cured meats and 3-4 complementary pairings, such as mustard, olives, crackers, cheese, jams, dried fruits, nuts, and pickled goods.

This Steak Knife Set from Kilne ($165) aren’t just for steaks. These knives may be small but don’t let their size mislead you: the serrated blades on these high-quality knives transition comfortably from meal prep to the dinner table. The best part is, it comes with two small magnetic acacia wood knife blocks too for easy and stylish storage.

Open wine quickly and easily with Cuisinart’s Style Collection Automatic 3-in-1 Wine Opener ($100, available at The Bay). It is fully rechargeable and comes with its own docking station, so it’s always fully charged when you need it (a six- to eight-hour full charge opens around 80 bottles). Use the foil cutter, which is neatly stored in the charging base, to cut perfectly around the top of the wine bottle and open the foil casing, and then place the wine opener over the top of the bottle and press the upwards arrow to effortlessly remove the cork. 

Get all your holiday recipes from your favourite flicks with The Christmas Movie Cookbook ($30, available at Indigo). This season you can indulge alongside your favorite Elf characters as they make special spaghetti and get tipsy with the Bad Moms crew while they imbibe their spiced cider. This must-have cookbook has sixty-five mouth-watering recipes to add joy to any holiday gathering. There are even tips on entertaining and menu ideas for your merry gatherings.

The 2-in-1 Ceramic Roaster Set ($35, available at Canadian Tire) is high-fired ceramic stoneware that provides superior heat retention, durability, and even cooking. It includes 3L roaster and 2.4L lid that can be used separately as two roasters or together. It has generous, rounded handles for easy lifting with an oven mitt or cloth, and an elegant grey ombre finish for oven-to-table use.
