Giada De Laurentiis for Target 10-pc. Stainless Steel Cookset: “My set of stainless steel pots and pans is your ultimate ‘just-moved-in’ set, so you’ve got everything you need to cook your first meal in your new kitchen.”

Threshold White Stoneware Measuring Spoons and Cup: “A little dash here and a sprinkle there works some of the time, but never underestimate the power of precision when using ingredients. Make sure you add the perfect amount to your recipe with this set of spoons and cups.”

Threshold Stoneware Round Cake Stand: “Any good-looking cake deserves to have its 15 minutes of fame. That’s if you can wait that long to eat it, of course! Threshold’s glazed cake stand is a gorgeous pedestal for your latest confection. Currently, mine’s holding my Hazelnut Crunch Cake.”

Giada De Laurentiis for Target Ceramic 2-qt. Oval Baker: “My favorite part about this gorgeous baker is that it’s meant to go straight from the oven to your table. Remember to place a kitchen trivet or coaster to protect your table from any heat damage.”

Pyrex Prepware 3 piece Mixing Bowl Set: “Easy to use and clean, these Pyrex mixing bowls set the standard for kitchen prep tools.”

Wilton Cavity Cookie Pan: “My family loves to bake cookies during the holidays, so I try to mix up the flavor and shape of our cookies. With this pan, you don’t even have to worry about cookie cutters—and that’s one less thing for me to clean afterwards.”

Giada De Laurentiis for Target Pasta Lovers Gift Set: “I’m Italian, so pasta is in my blood. This gift set includes everything you need—from the hardware (strainer, grater, colander and server) to the yummy stuff (pasta, sauce and my cookbook).”

Giada De Laurentiis Steak Knife Set – Brushed: “My husband knows not to mess with me if I’m working in the kitchen with my set of steak knives!”

Threshold Apple Peeler: “Fruit-based desserts are some of my favorites, and apple pie is at the top of my list. This bright red apple peeler makes baking seasonal sweets (like apple pie, apple cider and applesauce) easy as, well, pie.”

Threshold Holiday Apron: “Usually, I don’t mind getting messy in the kitchen. But if I’m making last minute preparations during a party, I like to keep my clothes crisp and clean. Plus, how adorable is this apron?”

Threshold Slate Board Tray with Serving Bowls: “You’ll spend more time chatting and enjoying your guests, and less time answering questions about which cheese is which.”
