4. Grand Tasting Village Pass for South Beach Wine & Food Festival - $405

For $405, this two-day pass to the South Beach Wine & Food Festival's Grand Tasting Village gives visitors the chance to rub elbows with the likes of Anthony Bourdain and Masaharu Morimoto. There will be culinary demonstrations, so gift-recipients will learn a thing or two from these famous personalities. They will also be able to sample unlimited food, wine and spirit offerings -- all while daydreaming about shoving one of these chefs out of rotation and one day becoming the next big TV chef star.

3. Alexandria Chicken Coop & Run from Williams-Sonoma - $1,749.90

Nothing tops frying up an egg from your very own backyard chicken coop. These eggs will have a delicate fresh flavor and almost orange yolks, much unlike the mass-produced stuff you pick up at most grocery stores. It's also an added plus that this backyard-to-table fare is awfully stylish. Think Martha Stewart meets Farmer Joe. So, buy overalls to pair with those stilettos and ditch the carton of eggs from the store. This year, give the gift of truly fresh eggs.

If you're still feeling generous, throw in a couple of cookbooks too. Whoever gets this gift will be whipping up a whole lot of meringues, omelets and custards.
