Speaking of coffee, Chicago-based Intelligentsia makes the best coffee I've ever sipped to date. The coffee snobs connoisseurs on your list will be more than excited to receive this.  Many have said (including my own mother) that it's the only coffee they can drink without creamer.  Why? Because there is much less acidity in this brand than others. I'm partial to the Organic Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Dama Cooperative Blend.  $20 for one pound at www.intelligentsiacoffee.com (or check your local retailers; my grocery store carries it).
