Wood Recipe Box
Sometimes there’s no reason to change the old-fashioned way of doing things. We love the timeless design of this wood recipe box ($29). Sturdy, minimalist and full of vintage charm—there’s nothing like a wood recipe box that can be passed down for generations. Bonus: There’s a slot on top of the lid to perfectly display the recipe card you’re currently using.

There are a lot of options for recipe binders out there, but we love the features of this leather recipe binder ($32). The cover is wipeable and easy to keep clean, and the gold foil detail gives it a little extra something. Inside, the 9 tabbed dividers, sheet protectors and tie-clasp envelope keep all your recipes nice and tidy.

If you prefer collecting cookbooks rather than single recipes, you’ll love this free-standing cookbook holder ($15). It’s a great way to keep things organized when you don’t have a spare cabinet or shelf. Keep it right on the counter, because the wood design makes for a great display piece.

Modern Recipe Box
For a modern twist on the classic recipe box, try this Kate Spade recipe box ($30). We are drooling over the black and white polka dot design! Inside you’ll find 8 tabbed dividers and forty recipe cards. Who knew a recipe box could be so cute? (Here are the cookie recipes that belong in that box.)

For those heavy hitters with an overwhelming amount of recipes to organize, go big with this storage box ($26). It can be tucked in a kitchen cabinet, and has plenty of room for hundreds, if not thousands, of recipes. A truly customizable solution—pop in as many files as you want with whatever categories fit your needs.

There’s nothing as precious as a treasured family recipe. That’s why we love this recipe journal ($12). Part recipe organizer, part diary, you can use the pages for a recipe as well as why it holds special meaning for your family. Preserve Grandma’s secret recipes to pass on for generations.
