Presents for your guests

If you're hosting a party, gourmet kitchen accessories help you make a to-die-for party menu. But supercool kitchen gadgets also make stunning parting gifts for your foodie guests once the party's over.

Simplehuman Sink Mat

The sink caddy's counterpart, the Simplehuman Sink Mat, makes light work of after-party cleanup. Its raised platform keeps the mat above the sink floor so water flows freely, preventing mildew. The sink mat features raised corners and edges that keep dishes from hitting the sink wall and chipping, and a convenient stainless steel handle that allows you to lift the mat out of the sink for easy access to the drain or disposal unit.

Retail: $12.99 for 12.8 x 11.3-inch (small) sink mat; $16.99 for 16.3 x 12.8-inch (large) sink mat

Calvisius White Sturgeon Caviar

What's a more gourmet gift than caviar? The exquisite (and sustainable) Italian malossol white sturgeon caviar from Calvisius is an elegant gift. Characterized by an amber to brown hue, this caviar is medium sized and has a lovely nutty flavor that lavishly pairs with many foods.

Retail: $61 for 1-ounce tin

Nudo: Adopt An Olive Tree

Nudo: Adopt-an-Olive Tree is a great hostess gift and a unique party favor. Instead of just buying olive oil for your favorite gourmets, adopt a tree in their name. You can choose a specific olive variety, and your food-loving friends or family members can follow the progress of the tree for one year and (literally) taste the reward of your gift. You also get a personalized adoption certificate and booklet that describes the tree, four 500ml tins of first cold-press extra-virgin olive oil from the tree in the spring (mid-April), three 250ml tins of infused extra virgin olive oil (i.e. lemon, chile, orange) in the fall, and an open invitation to come visit, hug or water the tree in person... in Italy.

Retail: $150 for adoption package

Gran Duque Crema de Alba Gift Set

Cheers to Gran Duque's Crema de Alba, made from Gran Duque de Alba Solera Gran Reserva, an indulgent liqueur that exudes cream, vanilla and cacao flavors. The Crema de Alba Gift Set gives your spirit-loving gourmet a beautifully crafted 750ml bottle of Crema de Alba Crème Liqueur and a stylish glass snifter. Serve some at your next party, then send guests home with a bottle of their own.

Retail: $19.99 for gift set

Wyndham Estate BIN 555 Sparkling Shiraz

Who doesn't love a nice bottle of wine? It's a gift that doesn't disappoint many. The Wyndham Estate BIN 555 Sparkling Shiraz has rich berry fruit flavors, spices and soft tannins. A beautiful bubbly change from sparkling whites or classic Champagne, this sparkling red wine pairs elegantly with turkey, rich meats and game dishes.
