Williams-Sonoma is my fave place to go for things I need for the kitchen. They have a wonderful variety of items without being too overwhelming. Many of their sauces and olive oils are great, as well as their bread mixes. Williams-Sonoma also sells some nice packaged gifts that are ready to go, or you can make your own. (Like a bread pan and a package of bread mix - yummy and easy to give!) Some of their items are a little expensive, like all their top-of-the-line pots and pans, but they definitely have a lot of items you can give as gifts for under $25.
