I'm in need of about 8 host gifts and holiday gifts for some really talented home chefs and entertainers. These are the folks who put on more than their fair share of parties, and have every kitchen gadget they need. They are also the ones who have the whole menu figured out and handled, so there's no need to contribute something to the meal I'm about to enjoy.
I usually bring wine and flowers. But this time, I want to reach into a new category or two.
So I thought it wise to put a shout out to the Chowhounders who cook and entertain a lot, and ask: what are some of the best hosting or home chef gifts you have ever received (up to $40)?
Your suggestions appreciated!
