Hostess gifts: for the girl who has everything

Oh decadence! What to buy a birthday girl who has everything?

I'll be bringing a bottle of DIVA vodka, made by Blackwood Distillers. This triple-distilled vodka is ice-filtered through Nordic birch charcoal and then passed through crushed diamonds and other gems. The glass bottle is filled and encrusted with semi-precious or precious stones, depending on your taste and, uh, budget.

Also on the gift list are Knipschildt's La Madeline au Truffes. This fantastic truffle is made with 70% Valrhona dark chocolate, heavy cream, sugar, truffle oil and vanilla as the base for the rich chocolate ganache. A rare French Perigord truffle is then enrobed by this decadent ganache; coated with Valrhona dark chocolate and then rolled in fine cocoa powder. The result is pure extravagance! Lying on a bed of sugar pearls in a silver box tied with a ribbon.

Not the prettiest chocolate you'll ever see, but it might be the most expensive!
