When it comes to the holidays, the co-host of FoodNetwork's The Kitchen Katie Lee Biegel has it all figured out. From gifting to family traditions, she knows how to really get in the Christmas spirit, especially now that she's a mom to a little girl. "I am so much more excited about the holidays now that I can see the joy of my daughter's experience. My husband, Ryan, and I go all out with our house," boasts Katie. The West Virginia native has adjusted to her new home, saying that, "New York City is especially nice during the holidays and we really enjoy going for family walks to see decorations and have a sweet treat with the some hot chocolate." Her fellow co-hosts also help to make spirits brighter. "Jeff Mauro always sends us his Chicago beef sandwiches and giardinera, both are so delicious and have become a holiday tradition in our family," Lee tells us. 

In addition to her gig as co-host, Katie also co-founded Kind of Wild, a wine brand that champions organic ingredients and sustainable farming practices. "As a co-founder, I am so proud of our wines, which are all organic, zero sugar, free from harmful additives and preservatives, and we give back to environmental charities," she says. While the wine is delicious on its own, the cookbook author can't help but spice it up, adding 1/2 ounce of ginger liqueur, 3 ounces of her sparkling wine, and a candied ginger garnish to create her very own drink which calls the Ginger Sparkler.

When it comes to gifting, Lee keeps it simple. "I like to make homemade cookies and package them in a nice holiday tin. I usually make my "doogerscoodles" (Ritz cracker peanut butter sandwiches dipped in chocolate). They're no-bake and oh-so-craveable. My friends have come to expect them every year!" But for those of us who prefer to buy something store-bought, Katie has plenty of amazing suggestions. From gifts for hosts, girlfriends, and foodies, keep reading to see what Katie Lee's picks that everyone will enjoy.

Best Gifts For Foodies

Zakarian by Dash 8

When it comes to a tool that the chef simply can't live without, she says, "A high-quality, sharp, chef's knife is a must in the kitchen and makes cooking much easier." This one from her co-star Geoffrey Zakarian's line makes a great gift for any foodie (plus it's currently on sale).

Cuisinart Food Processor Mini

"As for a gadget, I really love my mini food processor." This one from Cuisinart is tiny but mighty and has over 21,500 5-star ratings.

Zakarian by Dash 9

When it comes to the best gift she's ever gotten from a FoodNetwork co-star, she raves, "Geoffrey Zakarian just sent me his line of nonstick cast iron pans, which are so great." This one from her pal's line is versatile, perfect for frying, sauce-making, and roasting a delicious hunk of meat.

Katie's Bundle

When it comes to last minute gifts, Katie Lee says, "I would go to KindofWildWines.com and buy a gift card. The recipient gets an email right away and can choose the wine they wish to receive." Even better, "The wine comes in beautiful packaging, so it really makes the best gift."
