For seasoned cooks, good-quality olive oil is always a welcome kitchen staple. This set by Brightland includes four petite bottles with pepper-, garlic-, lemon-, and basil-infused flavors — sure to add a fresh profile to any dishes they’re whipping up. The oils look as good as they taste, as the labels are designed in abstract, colorful illustrations by artists around the world. A bonus? The packaging is beautiful, too — so, no wrapping necessary.

Just like olive oil, good salt can elevate dishes to new heights. This pick by cult-favorite brand Momofuku features a duo of seasoned salts. One, aptly dubbed Spicy, blends gochugaru and dried chillies for a flash of heat. The other, called Tingly, offers a bold flavor provided by Sichuan peppercorns and citrus. Your giftee will love using them for meat marinades or sprinkling them on popcorn.
