For cooks, you need to get your hands on a seasonings and condiments calendar from Williams-Sonoma; or if snacking has your heart, then get a truffles and baklava calendar from Harry & David. These calendars only happen once a year, and the most popular ones have historically sold out well in advance of their traditional December 1 start date, so don't hesitate if you see one you love.
