- $199 set of Wüsthof knives
- jar of Tiki Pork starter from Williams Sonoma (as seen here http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/tiki-pork-starter-sauce/ )
- a rocker type knife for quickly chopping herbs
... and it's not expensive, but my favorite gift of all:
A hamburger press that makes a pocket in the middle.. you can put all sorts of stuff inside and seal it. You can see it on Williams Sonoma website here: http://tinyurl.com/78xunhj -- I haven't used it yet.. the pocket doesn't look that deep inside.. this guy's invention looks like I might want to buy it: http://www.stufz.net/ -- looks real deep inside.
