Everyone looks good in black.

Best Buy

If you need an excellent kitchen gift that looks like it cost way more than it did, this solid six-piece Cuisinart knife set is currently down to just $15 at Best Buy -- today only. I've said it before, but most home cooks totally neglect their knives and so these sharp blades will provide a welcome lift for any budding chef with lots of slicing, dicing, mincing and chopping to do. 

The Cuisinart knife set -- marked down from $40 to just $15 -- includes a versatile chef's knife, a serrated bread knife, a slicing knife, a santoku (all-purpose) knife, a paring knife and a utility knife, each in its own sheath to protect from dents and dulling. They're made of stainless steel, with a nonstick coating designed to resist wear and tear and stay sharp over time.

The knives will arrive well before Christmas, but cost $6.50 to ship unless you get your cart over $40. You can also pick them up at a local brick-and-mortar Best Buy for free, pending inventory.
