Give the Gift of Warmth, Family and Tradition This Season
We tend to put a lot of thought into what gifts we buy our closest loved ones. They've got to be a good mixture of useful, meaningful and unique - watching loved ones' faces upon opening that wrapping paper is one of the best parts of the holiday!
But how do you begin searching for the perfect Christmas gift? Keep your selection in the family this season by picking up a slow cooker for your mother, brother, niece or son. This cooking tool not only lasts for years to come, but it's also ideal for preparing those secret recipes that have been passed down through the generations.
Stick with a Slow Cooker
After a few years, you'll notice that your slow cooker is no longer just a kitchen appliance - it's become a part of your family. The youngsters on your list who've never owned a slow cooker before are likely looking for a high-tech choice that can be pressed or hooked up to their smartphones. Opt for a slow cooker enabled with WeMo® technology to appeal to your more technologically savvy family members.
"Your slow cooker won't be just another kitchen appliance - it'll become part of your family."
Does your loved one already own a slow cooker? Even better. If they're looking to upgrade, look for a new product that can fit a few more quarts, or that has a new feature that would serve your loved one's recipes well. Alternatively, opt for a less-traditional slow cooker, like the Crock-Pot® Casserole Crock Slow Cooker.
Holiday Classics to Pass Down
Once your loved one unwraps a new slow cooker, chances are, he or she is going to want to try it out. If you're feeling particularly adventurous, consider buying a slow cooker cookbook to accompany your gift, giving the person a variety of recipes to choose from for the first meal. You've already got a collection of your family's most prized recipes, but if you're looking to adapt them to the slow cooker, Crock-Pot Girl™ Jenn Bare is there to help.
