I think foodies are just like fashionistas...they want to dress up whatever they have...so, I would say that there kitchens look like a million dollars...so, why not add to the fabulosity of their kitchen for Christmas???
I think Padma Lakshmim's HSN collection, Easy Exotic is the way to go. There are fabulous teas and glass tea pots. Plus, porcelain prep bowl sets that are sure to make your friend happy to be in the kitchen mixing something up:)
