Graeters ice cream: "This is hands down the best ice cream I've ever had. It comes in a cooler on dry ice with a note from the sender. If I am going to a holiday party, I like to send this in advance instead of flowers. Be sure to try the mint chocolate chip and the black raspberry chip."

"Water Bobble Presse: "I am a coffee addict and this is like a French press and a to-go cup all in one.

"Endless Summer" coobook: "I live for summer and just because it's cold outside, doesn't mean that you can't shake up a coconut martini or a frozen blueberry daiquiri and pretend it's August."

Hamilton Beach breakfast sandwich maker: "A few years ago, Rachael Ray sent me one of these and it earned a permanent spot on my kitchen counter. It makes the best breakfast sandwich you've ever eaten in no time and it's easy to clean. It's like magic."

Pineapple tumbler: "Pineapples have long been the symbol of hospitality. These tumblers are so cute and make for a perfect hostess gift."

Hamptons salt: "I've lived in the Hamptons for almost 13 years now and I like to send my friends a little taste of my community with these salts. They have infused salts, raw salts, and smoked salts."

Philips pasta machine: "This is a total splurge item for the cook in your life. I am hoping Santa leaves one for me under the tree!"
