The Ice Cream Lover Gift Guide

The Ice Cream Lover Gift Guide featured image

We think everyone can agree that homemade ice cream is irresistible so we’ve compiled a list of ice cream tools and treats to help you make the most delectable desserts all throughout the year!

Electric Ice Cream Machine

Mix the creamiest gourmet ice cream in just 25 minutes with the Cuisinart ICE-30 BC. This compact unit is well insulated for a consistent salt-less quick freeze process and is powerful enough to keep turning as the cream continues to firm up. If you plan to make two flavors of ice cream, simply pop out your full freezing bowl, and place a second Cuisinart freezing bowl into the machine to mix your next ice cream flavor. We love using this Cuisinart ice cream maker in our test kitchen!

Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker

Waffle Cones

What could make homemade ice cream even better?! Homemade waffle cones! Fill your home kitchen with that warm sweet vanilla waffle smell by rolling cone after cone with the Chef’s Choice Wafflecone Express. Don’t sweat finding the best recipe for batter when you could whip up a batter of the delicious Chef’s Choice waffle cone mix. I recently had the chance to watch someone make waffle cones (and to taste them afterward), and I have to say it’s way too easy and delicious to make just once. Be sure to get the handy Gourmet Cone Holder to avoid a sad scene of shattered sweetness all over your floor. This stand displays each cone beautifully and ensures a delicate and sturdy foundation.


The Scoop

Grab an anti-freeze scoop or spade to unlock the secret to perfectly shaped ice cream scoops without getting a sore arm. These smart scoops have defrosting fluid sealed within the handle that allows you to glide straight through your ice cream with no strain.

Dish It Up Fancy

Pick up pretty Duralex Gigogne dessert dishes to serve treats in at you next party. These elegant pink pedestal dishes present any dessert beautifully, while keeping portions just the right size for the occasion. Duralex formed the Gigogne dish with strong, shock-resistant glass so you can scoop or pour any hot or cold dessert without shattering glass.



Tips & Tricks from Jeni

Let Jeni, a creative entrepreneur with an ice cream business, guide you as you create delicious go-to ice cream recipes for your home, friends, family and acquaintances. Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams made its mark as a big-time ice cream company in 2002 and continues to offer melt-in-your-mouth frozen creams across the nation. Let Jeni wow you in your own kitchen with Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream at Home book!


Cold Stones

Mix it up with a beautiful ice cream stone set! This is a fun and clean way to keep your ice cream firm, while stirring in delicious sweet treats that bring another dimension to each bit of ice cream. Our natural marble stone comes with two anti-freeze spades for scooping and mixing. Don’t limit it to ice cream though… chill your famous fudge on this board and then cut the fudge into neat cubes for serving.


Ice Cream Storage

Store your finished product in 4 or 6 ounce Duralex Lys Stackable Bowls with a tight sealing lid so they’re ready to go for a quick dessert! These bowls will take the cold like a pro and are also perfect for mixing ice cream bases in.
