First up is The Gourmet Gourmand—that person who lives for food and enjoys the finer things in life, whether it's a juicy filet or a glass of wine. Her idea of the perfect night in would be cooking an elegant five-course dinner for her closest friends. If you play your cards right, you might even be able to reap the benefits of these delectable goodies.

Why I Love It: Transform boring hors d'oeuvres, main courses, and desserts into culinary works of art with this delicious line of chutneys, spreads, tapenades, pesto, and glazes. Choose an assortment of mouth-watering flavors for your gourmand—like mango pineapple chutney and lemon artichoke pesto—so she can mix and match depending on whatever she's craving.
Extras: Try the the balsamic four-onion spread. It's perfect as a sophisticated pizza topping or as a tasty appetizer alongside goat cheese and crackers.
