There are many great presents you can buy for under $50 or under $20, but sometimes you really need a luxury gift idea. Maybe the recipient helped you get through a really challenging year and you want to really splash out on something special to show your appreciation. Or maybe the person you’re shopping for already has all the basic kitchen gear they need, so it’s time to get creative. In either case these high-end gifts are the answer: They’re all truly special presents for folks who love to cook, to host, and to eat and drink.

For the backyard entertainer

Pellet ice maker

Some people are willing to drive miles out of their way to buy sodas with crunchy pellet ice; fancy cocktail bars pride themselves on having the stuff. But your loved one can make their own pellet ice at home with this ice maker, which came out on top of our countertop ice maker review. This model is easy to clean and quick to crank out the good stuff, 24 pounds at a time. We consider it the perfect toy for anyone who loves to gather friends for outdoor drinks.

$599.00, Best Buy

A smoker

If your favorite backyard host is curious about smoking ribs and pork shoulders but isn’t really the type to hover over an offset smoker, feeding wood in hour after hour, they’ll love this gravity-fed smoker from Masterbuilt, which made the best smoked wings of any of the smokers we tried in our product test.

An LED lantern

If your favorite host’s dining setup could use a touch more ambient light in the evening, this modern LED lantern is a stylish way to go. Available with brass, white, or deeper-toned trim, the light-up globe is dimmable—and rechargeable.

For the jam maker

A copper pot

The most important element in making jam is starting with great fruit—but there’s something extra-satisfying about stirring it together in a luxurious copper pan. Pastry chefs like Michelle Polzine of 20th Century Cafe and Nicole Krasinski of State Bird Provisions swear copper makes the “shiniest, sexiest jam you can imagine.”

Stunning tabletop gifts

For the budding sushi chef

A rice cooker and a stellar knife

You can absolutely make perfect rice in a pan on the stove—but there’s nothing easier than popping your rice and water into this tip-top machine, which uses induction heating for precision temperature control that extends around the whole pot, not just the base. The Zojirushi is a pleasure to use—and it even has sensors to adjust temperatures and cooking times if you accidentally mis-measured. For the full setup, pair the rice cooker with an easy-to-clean rolling mat and this sharp chef’s knife, which has dimples down the side to prevent slices of fish from sticking to the steel.

For the beachgoer and (car) camping pro

An exceptional cooler

You’ve probably heard about Yeti coolers—and we love their smaller-size Roadie model—but for a super-maneuverable, large-capacity hard-side cooler, the way to go is the Pelican 45Q. Its latches are secure but easy to open; its grippable side handles are ideal for hoisting; and the extendable trolley handle makes it possible to roll even when filled to the brim.

For the food lover who’s determined to keep dining outdoors

A giant scarf

A generous-size supersoft scarf is the ultimate way to cozy up while you’re dining under a heat lamp outdoors. This one from Cuyana is woven from recycled cashmere and available in three colors.

For the cook with ancient spices

A beautiful masala dabba

Using fresh spices will revolutionize any cook’s food—and your gift recipient will be gobsmacked by the vivid aromas of this assortment of everyday spices from Diaspora Co., packed in a beautiful brass case that will develop a warm patina over time. (Remind them to keep stocking it with fresh spices before that happens, though!)

For the wine aficionado

Luxe wineglasses

It’s likely that your favorite wine hobbyist has a personal preference for stemware—and it could be worth peeking in their cabinets to figure out which specific brand they love. Since wineglasses have a way of breaking every now and then, though, any dabbler in wine could probably use a few new stems. If you can’t figure out which glasses they prefer, you can’t go wrong with mouth-blown Zaltos, widely considered the cream of the crop.

For the frozen dessert lover

Ice cream makers with freezable bowls aren’t expensive, but they’re also not terribly convenient. Upgrade your favorite frozen dessert fan to a stand-alone compressor model that’s ready to go at a moment’s notice; this one won our head-to-head product test.

For the cook with kids (or pets)

Maybe buying a vacuum cleaner as a gift doesn’t feel especially opulent, but the truth is, there’s nothing kinder than making cleaning easier, especially if your loved one has messy kids or dogs. A cordless Dyson means spotless floors without struggle.
