    3. For your own private chef: a striped bistro apron.

    Promising review: "Very well made apron. Love the nice wide adjustable strap around the neck and it has very deep pockets! Perfect size for holding my iPhone. I’ll be purchasing a second one."

    11. For the cookbook collector: a book with over 100 recipes by some of the best chefs in the country.

    Promising review: "This is actually worth buying. So often, I find pretty cookbooks that don't offer anything I actually need or a recipe I'm not likely to come across online. This cookbook has plenty of recipes I never would have thought of."


    Get it on Amazon for $23.79, Barnes & Noble for $24.24, or a local bookseller through Indiebound here.

    12. For the baker in your life: a set of decorative piping tips to take their sweets to the next level.

    K. Young

    Get it on Amazon for $20.36.

    13. For your favorite master chef who likes to stay sharp: a duo knife sharpener.

    Promising review: "I was impressed with not only the looks of this unit, but the ease with which I could get a nice sharp edge on some good knives that hadn't been sharpened for awhile. Very easy to use, has rubber on the base so it doesn't move around when you are using it, and fits nicely in a drawer because it is a compact design. Pretty enough to leave out if you want to."


    Get it on Amazon for $19.96.

    14. For your go-to whiskey drinker: a set of soapstone rocks to keep their beverage cold.

    Promising review: "I like my whiskey cold, not watered down. These guys are the solution. Frankly, the box and bag they come in is almost worth the price! Excellent budget gift for the liquor drinker in your life, I got a set for me and another for my son (he loves them, too)!"

    Kelly Fitzpatrick

    Get a set of nine on Amazon for $19.95.

    Happy V-Day to all the food lovers!
