Cooking Magazine Gift Subscription - Help!

I'm debating between:
This is for a seasoned cook. I know in the past they've subscribed to Bon Appetite, so I'd like to do something a little different (besides the fact a lot of recipes end up on Epicurious).
I don't have any experience with Fine Cooking, but I just looked at a sample magazine and I really liked their layout. That's my #1 pick so far, but I'm open to suggestions!
I think Saveur and BA are very similar... which is also why Fine Cooking stands out.
I love love love Fine Cooking. I have ''downsized' to only Fine Cooking and a membership to Next Issue which gives me BA, Saveur, Food & Wine, Eating Well, and Cooking Light when I choose to read them but if I don't get to them no biggie. I don't think you can go wrong with a Fine Cooking. You get the print version and Electronic. If they would read electoronic you might consider gifting A membership to Next Issue for a larger variety. I subscribed to CI for one year. It wasn't for me.
I get Fine Cooking too, down to only 1 mag these days. I enjoy it and frequently use the recipes.
I'd nix Cooks Illustrated if it's for a "seasoned cook." CI is targeted to people just learning to cook, or to those who wouldn't dare deviate from a printed recipe. Of the magazines on your list, I'd go with Fine Cooking.
