This holiday, spice up your life — or that of a loved one — by adding an arsenal of killer salts, sugar, and spice accoutrements to the average home pantry. A few dreamy ideas: combine an elegantly boxed chocolat chaud ($20) with Nielsen-Massey vanilla paste ($8) from Madagascar for a killer vanilla-chocolate combo; for the savory food aficionado in your life, try pairing The Flavor Bible ($22), Karen Page's definitive reference on culinary creativity, with this La Boîte à Epice seasonless spice trio ($30). And don't forget: no spice drawer is complete without a mastrad spice grinder ($25). The ultimate showstopping piece for that truly special gourmand? This bisque porcelain Hering-Berlin mortar and pestle ($750).
