Welcome to the Jessica in the Kitchen 2017 Gift Guides! If you’re like me, you are DEFINITELY aiming to get some of those Black Friday deals in!! I’ve split the categories into a few that will more than likely cover everyone you’re shopping for. Also, I own a ton of these so I can testify to how amazing they are, and how much your gift receiver will love them. P.S. – TOTALLY acceptable if your gift receiver is YOU, btw. Like, you totally deserve a gift.

I once wrapped a belgian waffle maker, addressed from me to me, put it under the tree, and happily unwrapped it then hugged myself for the awesome gift. Self-care at its best, friends.

Dig in! Dive in! ENJOY!! Yes, I timed these so that they would come out right before Black Friday so that you can benefit from all the amazing sales going on right now. Speaking of which – check back tomorrow (on Thanksgiving) – my ebook It’s That Easy will be on SALE!! I’ll give you all the details tomorrow! I hope these gift guides serve you well! They’re so fun to go through!

Happy shopping and Happy Thanksgiving when it comes!!
