We know it's been a hard year. You're on a budget? Us too. But that doesn't mean you've got to give fruitcakes to all your loved ones this holiday season. Somewhere in giftland there exists a basket for every craving, a box for every obsession, a bucket for every fancy. Got a vegetarian daughter? We found a gorgeous gift basket piled high with six pounds of baby vegetables. Wife's pregnant? Get her a colorfully printed ice cream cooler full of snacks. Know someone who's keen on imported cheese, microbrews, caramels, exotic salts, or olives? We've located cool metal tins, wood crates, steel buckets, and wicker hampers for them, too.

In fact, we pored over the offerings at all our favorite food purveyors-Artisanal Cheese, Fortnum & Mason, Vosges, andZingerman's included-and came away with 16 gorgeous gourmet goodies for every possible type of foodie on your list. Great packaging, in every case, seals the deal. The best part? Each gift costs less than $100; more than half of them actually go for under $75. (Not that anyone has to know how much you paid, of course.) See for yourself: Click on the slideshow to get started.
