Shoes complete the ensemble. Like these Boutique 9 Amalia Espadrille Pumps. Peep toe, suede. And the espadrille is a spring/summer essential. From Boutique 9 ( a division of Nine West {love their shoes!}) At 70% off these versatile pumps are really a steal.

All of these bundle items will serve your recipient well. She’ll mix and match with her existing wardrobe to create new looks.  And, she’ll definitely remember your thoughtfulness with a big smile.

Fagor Paella Pan – Chef Central

It’s possible to bundle kitchen gifts, too.  2 kids. 3 bundled gifts. 2 besties. 1 happy friend.  You get the idea. Big bang. Budget friendly.

Take this Fagor Cast Aluminum Paella Pan. Most chefs taut cast iron as one of the best cooking conductors. It cooks evenly and cleans easily.  Now your cooking recipient can make paella at home. Perhaps they’ll even invite you over. 

 $80 $40
Cuisinart Saute Pan – Chef Central
Your recipient might use the 4 1/2 Qt. Non-stick Hard Anodized Saute Pan to make a sauce for the paella. Actually, they’ll use it for lots of things over the years. It’s a Cuisinart® Chef’s Classic™. It’s durable. 
 $70  $30 
Depending on what’s in their paella, they may find the Taylor Digital Probe Thermometer handy. At any rate, a cook can always use a good

Taylor Thermometer — Chef Central

thermometer. Measures the temperature from outside the pan or oven. No opening the door or lifting the lid to check.

$25 $13 
And, a good knife is always a welcome addition.  Whether they use it to slice and dice the paella ingredients or for everyday slicing and dicing. Designed for a commercial kitchen, the Wusthof-Trident Pro Series Chef’s Knife works well either way.
 $40 $20
