7 Millennial Pink Kitchen Gifts
All pink everything.
Among the many things 2017 has been—exhausting, weird, full of Cardi B—it has also been very pink. Millennial pink, as the media has dubbed that omnipresent shade of blush pastel, has not let up. And as a result, there are some pleasingly pink kitchen items that have debuted this year. I have not been immune to their charms. If there's someone in your life who likes to drink pink and think pink, well, this is the gift guide for you.
Chic Pink $2 Glasses
I have had a long, ongoing feud with stemware, and so I'm always on the lookout for stemless wine glasses that are chic and affordable. These IKEA Intagande eight ouncers are just the ticket. They have a slight pink tint that doesn't seem chintzy. They're also just $1.99 a piece, so if you happen to smash a couple in the sink by accident (ahem) you won't feel too bad about it. Package two together with the pink Intagande carafe and you have a elegant looking holiday gift that rings in under $15. (Ikea, $1.99 each)
A Cotton Candy Pink Paring Knife
In my kitchen, the two knives that I reach for the most are my chef's knife and my paring knife. This sweet little Kuhn Rikon number is fashionable and sharp, something that'll both help you prep bell peppers and look good on your magnetic knife strip. And it's less than $10, too. (Amazon, $9.94)
A Classic Stand Mixer in Pastel Pink
If you're looking for something a little splashier, it's hard to go wrong with a classic Kitchenaid stand mixer. There's a reason that this is a staple on every wedding registry and in many serious baker's kitchens—the thing does everything, lasts forever, and comes in a rainbow of hues. Including, of course, this sugary baby pink. If the price is a little steep, don't worry—keep an eye out for the post-Christmas sales, when these babies often get marked down, and snatch one up. (Amazon, $275)
A Use-It-For-Everything Sugar Pink Dutch Oven
Speaking of wedding registry staples, did you know that Le Creuset came out with a line of matte sugar pink cookware this year? If you're looking for something tried and true—a piece that will last you for decades if you take good care of it, and comes with a lifetime warranty if disaster strikes—you're looking for the 5.5 quart dutch oven. It's pricey, but it's one of those things that you'll probably never have to replace. This round number is perfect for stews, soups, braising, and baking bread. But the oval version, which is equally as useful and equally pink, is marked down by more than $100 dollars right now, too. (Le Creuset, $300)
A Blush Cake Stand
If the dutch oven isn't in your budget but you're a fan of the Le Creuset pink thing, this beautiful cake stand in Hibiscus is also a lovely gift, particularly for a baking enthusiast. (Le Creuset, $50)
A Pink Dorm Room Staple
Rice cookers might sound like uni-taskers, but you can use them for so much more than just a pot of perfectly cooked white rice. My first rice cooker, purchased in college, lasted through a decade of hard use, and is most of the reason I was not totally malnourished in my early 20s. This one is sized just right for kitchenettes, plus it's pink. (Urban Outfitters, $29)
A Pink Ceramic Tea Kettle
For the cold months ahead, this cheery ceramic pink kettle can bring some much-needed light to a kitchen, or just some much-needed hot water to your hot cocoa mix. (Amazon, $26.35)
