Brunchology 101

Last-minute gift ideas for the brunch lover

By on December 19, 2011

Christmas is less than a week away! Have you gotten all of your shopping done? If you’re still looking for gifts for that special someone who loves brunch, we’ve got some great ideas!

Making brunch at home can be a lot of fun, but your brunch lover needs to be prepared. With more than 100 recipes, Gale Gand’s Brunch! is the perfect cookbook for your little chef. I actually just got this book as an early Christmas gift, and I can’t wait to try out these delicious recipes. Baked eggs in ham cups, bacon waffles, goat cheese and chive hash browns … I don’t even know where to begin! You can pick up this book at your local bookstore or on

Now that you have the recipes, you need the tools to make an amazing brunch. An egg poacher or griddle is a nice addition to any chef’s kitchen. An egg poacher is essential for Eggs Benedict, and a griddle will cook your pancakes, fried eggs or bacon to perfection. Make a visit to Williams-Sonoma or Bed Bath and Beyond to find these and other fun kitchen gadgets.

No brunch is complete without drinks. What’s a better gift than alcohol? Your bruncher would love a bottle of prosecco and a beautiful set of champagne flutes! Stop by your local liquor store for a bottle of prosecco, and try Macy’s or Pottery Barn for the champagne flutes. They’ll be sipping bellinis and mimosas in no time!

If your special someone loves drinking mimosas, than she’ll love smelling like one. Philosophy Mimosa can be used as a body wash, shampoo or bubble bath. They also provide you with the recipe for the perfect mimosa on the front of the bottle! You can complement this gift with mimosa flavored lip gloss. Snatch up these yummy treats on or at Sephora.

With any of these gifts, your brunch lover will be happy for months to come. Brunch on and happy holidays!
