Meet my new best friend, Bialetti. This Italian espresso maker makes the best coffee, hands down. It is owned by 9 out of 10 households in Italy. I'm guessing they know a thing or two about coffee! After seeing Ina Garten and Giada DeLaurentiis use them on their cooking shows over the years, I've been meaning to get one. Can you believe it only costs $30? No kidding. And, it's the easiest thing I've ever used.
I have barely begun buying gifts and I'm already thinking about the gift wrap. I simply adore a beautiful presentation. Here are a few ideas that are sure to please.
