“I believe the holidays are for slowing down, spending time with family, and eating delicious food,” says Tieghan Gerard, the creative culinary force behind recipe blog Half Baked Harvest. For the New York Times bestselling cookbook author, suiting up in a handmade linen apron and breaking out her faithful rolling pin is all in a day’s work—and now, with the launch of the limited-edition Half Baked Harvest x Etsy holiday collection, you can incorporate some of Tieghan’s cozy, vintage-inspired style into your own home this season, too. “I wanted to bring the look and feel of my own kitchen to life through this collaboration with timeless essentials people will love to use and gift to others," she says. Scroll on to browse the full line, co-designed by the Colorado-based tastemaker and 12 stellar Etsy sellers, which includes heirloom-quality recipe stands, laser-cut Christmas cake toppers, seasonal scented candles, and more gorgeously giftable cookware, decor, and hosting must-haves.
