    Promising review: "This is a handy little gadget for those of us unfamiliar with how to sharpen knives. I use it each time I want my knife honed to a good clean blade. Just insert the blade into its sharpener and pull it back towards you. Don't worry about getting it in the wrong sharpener, all of them work!" —Amazon Customer

    36. And a mustard sampler pack that'll upgrade their boring lunch sandwich. Honey curry, garlic dill, black truffle, classic, and chipotle mustard will make them say buh-bye to bland mayo for good.

    This set comes with ballpark black pepper, black truffle, chipotle, classic, garlic dill, and honey curry mustard.

    Promising review: "In full disclosure, I bought this set as a gift for my husband who is obsessed with mustards of all kinds. I typically don't really like mustard, but since I was giving the review, I thought I would at least give them a try (and was pleasantly surprised!)." First, the paper tube the mustards come in is simple, but I think it's really quite nice. It makes it easier to give as a gift as a whole package (rather than each individual bottles) and I like that it's not flashy in any way (I think that would detract from the mustards themselves). Each jar of mustard is again simple, but nice — I think they would look really nice out on the table at a party or barbecue (certainly better than an ugly plastic yellow bottle)." —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $28.57.

    That feeling when they receive their fave snacks on Valentine's Day:
