If you have someone in your life who takes to cooking like Nigella Lawson, why not gift them a Christmas present that'll help them indulge their inner master chef?
The holiday season serves as the perfect opportunity to spoil any kitchen wiz with a present they'll actually use (and love you for).
Here, 13 presents any at-home chef would love to find under the tree.
Google Home Hub and family, from $49
Kitchen living is made easy with the Google Home Hub. With the Google Assistant built-in, and smart-device compatibility, budding chefs will love operating hands-free. Source a new recipe, watch cooking videos, learn new knife skills, play your favourite dinner playlist and even add ingredients to your shopping list simply by giving the Home Hub voice commands, such as "Hey Google, add milk to my shopping list," or "Hey Google, show me how to cut a pineapple." How's that for helpful! The best bit is that with the whole Google Home family (including Google Home, Max and Mini, starting at $49), there's a perfect gift for every person and every budget.*
