An apron with your initials maybe or some oven mitts? Cook books would be great too. It all depends on what you like really. You have a good list so far!

Here are some ideas of things I'd like to get as cooking gifts:

. a couple, three vanilla beans
. excellent vanilla
. fleur de sel (French sea salt)
. another probe thermometer (Taylor or Polder)
. another Thermapen instant read thermometer
. more ramekins for creme brulee

I would give a sixteener a collection of cookie cutters. I would give a fondue set and a punch bowl. Maybe a George Foreman grill and a sandwich maker and a stirfry set. A king crab pot and sea shells. I would want a young person to have a spice set and a nut cracker. A cutting board, soup pot and soup mugs. A cake decorator and jello molds. Candy maker kit and a set of candles. A cookbook and a holiday scrapebook. A tailgate party outfitter and a king chili barrell. I would want my sixteener to have lots of fun.
