There are plenty of appliances out there that would make great gifts for kitchen enthusiasts—but if you’re looking for something smaller-scale than, say, a KitchenAid stand mixer or espresso maker, you can always get them in ornament form. Sur La Table has a gleaming copper teapot miniature that you can hang on your tree; Old World Christmas even makes a little toaster ornament, complete with a slice of bread popping out the top. They're easy, small gifts that would make the perfect stocking stuffer or present for your host. Read on for some of our favorites that we’ve found.

Stand mixers are a kitchen staple at this point, so it’s only natural that they would come immortalized as ornaments, too.

We wish this sleek ornament was life-sized so we could add it to our pots and pans collection.
