The ultimate holiday foodie gift guide

Gift baskets

If you're like most people, your email inbox is brimming with advertisements for every website you've even thought about visiting in the last year. As tempting as those products may be, we have a listing of sites featuring holiday hampers and gifts from the most popular chefs and cookbook authors around the world. Some of these items can be shipped and others need to be picked up in store.

These gifts would be a delight for any food or cookbook lover to unwrap. If you know of any sites that we've missed, let us know in the comments and we'll add them to the post.
