Bazzini Nuts in New York is a wonderful source for mixed nuts. You can get them packed in a great-looking tin with a picture of an elephant holding a peanut in its trunk; it would make a nice gift. Five pounds of mixed nuts (without peanuts) is about $30, reports Niki Rothman.

Lobel’s butcher shop in New York City has beautiful and expensive meat.

Zingermans Deli is great for everything, says Tripper. Olive oil, vinegar, cheese, are all top quality. They also make great gift baskets.

Get your spices from Penzey’s. Or try the Spice House in Chicago. Not everything is listed on their site; just tell them what you’re looking for. They’re nice folks, too, says Bananna A.
