2013 Holiday gift ideas for foodies that have everything



Even while reveling in the festivities surrounding the December holidays, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the stress of finding the perfect gifts for your family, friends and loved ones.  Whether you’re shopping for a fanatical foodie or a hostess with the mostess, it’s safe to assume that a gift for the kitchen will be well received.

(Editor’s Note: unless you happen to be dating me, which I have on good authority that you are not, do not apply this advice to your girlfriend or significant other unless you have been granted explicit permission to wrap a cutting board under the Christmas tree).

To aid those of you who have a cook or two on your nice list or have been given the green light to hit the home goods department, there are plenty of gift ideas that will make playing Santa more gratifying than ever before.

Kosta Boda Tattoo Wine Glasses: Celebrate the artistry of tattooing without risking a lifetime of permanent regret. $100, ahalife.com.

Seletti Vegetable Chopping Board: I would never spend a c-note on a cutting board for myself, but if someone else gave it to me, I would be, without question, unreasonably excited. $90, amara.com.
