It's amazing we don't all make our own bread: It's easy, it's delicious, and it's cheap. Give the foodie in your life the tools to get started with a customized do-it-yourself kit: a loaf pan, a bread knife for perfect slices, and a book of recipes (we like Bread: A Baker's Book of Techniques and Recipes by Jeffery Hamelman) for starters. Throw in an apron, a few packets of yeast, a bag of flour, a board for kneading, and a sourdough starter and you chef is ready to go. Then reap the rewards. ($8-$25)
