Loop 21 Gift Guide: The Kitchen
Our picks for the budding chef in your life this holiday season
With Christmas a little more than a week away, it's crunch time for gift givers. There are always those people on our lists who are extremely hard to buy for. A person who loves to cook -- especially if he or she is any good at it -- is certainly one of those hard-to-buy-for people.

To help you win big smiles from the "Chef Boyardee" in your life this holiday season, we've compiled 10 gift ideas that can get you started and not bust your budget. That is, unless you want to gift someone a $500 Vitamix blender this year. And by all means, do!
