    I think things from the kitchen are the best gifts to give, because you know they will be used time and time again. I’m getting some friends Indianapolis Specialty Desserts. We all live in Indy and the best desserts come from this little place. Absolutely delicious!

  2. Good list, I found a couple of ideas for the wife here, she loves momofuku! I’d also recommend “Heat” by Bill Buford for your book ideas.

    We put together a list of nine under $15 and 5 under $40 at

  3. Thanks for the gift ideas, cheers!
