As we finish up gift guide week we couldn’t resist adding our favorite picks for the haute homemaker. Even if you’re not an expert chef or gardener (yet!), you can still be stylish while you learn! We’ve had so much fun and hope you’ve found some ideas to pick up for friends or to add to your own wishlist.
My top pick for the Haute Homemaker in your life is the Everyday Food cookbook by Martha Stewart. I received it last year from fellow HAP blogger Katie and it has become my go-to cookbook for simple and delicious meals that can be made in a reasonable amount of time. It’s a must have in your kitchen!

Is it weird that of all these pretty things I desperately want that Compost Pail?? A great gift for a gardener or your eco-conscious friend, Crate and Barrel makes composting sleek, stylish and odor-free.

My favorite pick for your haute homemaker this holiday is a gift certificate to a Sur La Table cooking class. Sur La Table offers a variety of classes, from tapas to Christmas brunch. Give a gift to yourself and tell your haute homemaker you will come too! If Sur La Table is not in your area, I recommend searching the web for the closest cooking school.
