The holidays are my favorite time of year. Music, parties, lights, glitter, snow and, of course, the yummy food!

The one thing I don't always love is holiday shopping. It's hard to know what to get for the people on my list.

So this year, I polled my fellow EatingWell editors for their top gift picks for food lovers. Spread holiday cheer with any of these finds or give one to yourself (I won't tell).
