Although gourmands might be hard to shop for, we’ve gathered 15 suggestions sure to please any foodie or kitchen maven in your life — from the dining room knives and portable burners used in renowned New York restaurants to a cult wine-of-the-month club and a Hugh Acheson–curated steak set. See all the picks below.
