Table Top Gifts for Food Lovers

The countdown is on. Just twelve days until Christmas.

Since I don't mean to send you into a state of panic, but to ease your last-minute, holiday frenzy, I will be sharing some favorite gift ideas, most -- if not all -- you can order online and have shipped directly to your door. All food related, but appealing to all, from the gadget-loving foodie to the fine-dining wine connoisseur to the simple housewife.

Because, c'mon, who doesn't love to eat.
