A Gift for the Little Chef


I am pretty proud of this gift, because I put it together for $10!  I wrapped 'The Girl's Cookbook' in a child's apron.  If you wanted to spiffy this up, you could monogram it with the little chef's name.  My daughter has this apron with a chocolate monogram right on the pocket.
I found all three items at TJMaxx, but at different times.  I have three kids and that means lots of gifts for friends throughout the year.  I snag cute things, when I see a good price and stock them in a 'gift box.'
The measuring cups were also available and looked just like the spoons...just FYI!

Thanks for stopping by!

Ohh Christine, this is such a cute gift. I am so bad at collecting gifts throughout the year. I always say I need to do that, and never do. I love the wrapping with the apron, and those spoons are adorable.

Thanks for sharing this with us!!

L-O-V-E this adorable gift. I am sooo copying it as a gift for my little niece and my granddaughter! As they say, imitation is the highest form of flattery! :o) However, I promise to give credit to you when I am given heaps of praise for such a darling gift.

LOVE IT!! Do you by chance remember who the author is of the cookbook? I'm trying to find it to see what it is exactly...getting my daughter an easy bake for christmas along w/an apron & this would be perfect to go with it too!

Christie said...

Anonymous, I found the cookbook at TJMaxx and I don't remember the author. I tried to google the title and look on Amazon, but no luck finding this exact one. There were many similar ones at Amazon, but be sure to check TJMaxx, too. Good luck!
