We’re officially approaching one week until Christmas (yes, that’s right, one week), and my last-minute gift hunting is in full swing.

If you’re in the same boat, we’ve rounded up 11 delightful and unique kitchen and home gifts that will arrive just in time for Christmas. From a spa-like bathrobe to a limited-edition kitchen utensil holder, we’ve got you covered with thoughtful gift ideas.

4. A Puerto Rican Cookbook from The New York Times‘ ‘Best Of’ list, $26.98

As a Puerto Rican who grew up in the States, my relationship with Puerto Rican food has often been reserved for family holidays or childhood biennial visits to my abuelita’s home. Illyanna Maisonet’s Diasporican: A Puerto Rican Cookbook is now one of my favorite cookbooks I own. Featuring over 90 recipes—some of which were passed down by her grandmother and mother—alongside rigorous research on the island’s foodways and the history of Puerto Rican cuisine, it’s a fantastic addition to any cookbook collection.
