We already expounded the rustic virtues of Michael Chiarello's NapaStyle: a place that helps you get that Napa Valley look, feel, and taste. (Speaking of Chiarello, what happened to his show on KQED? Did he make the move over to the Food Network? While he's no Joanne Weir -- who is, really? -- we enjoyed watching him at times.) What's nice about the place is that it won't overwhelm you in the way that Williams-Sonoma and Sur La Table will. And how.
For a quick last-minute gift, head on over to NapaStyle for a bottle of fancy vinegar. Or a fancy micoplane. Or a jar of fancy truffle salt. Or a fancy spork. (We'll double-check on that last item.) And to sweeten the deal, enter our contest and you just might win a $25 gift certificate. Yay, you!
