Food Gifts For Holiday Giving

I'm looking for something unusual to give for Christmas to friends in distant locations. Anyone have any good ideas? Not too expensive; not the "fruitcakes", please!!

  1. Where are you located? You could give a sampler of some fun foods your area is known for. Like Tasty Cakes from Philly.

    1. I don't know about the shipping & handling on this but someone in our office just got this tea assortment for Chanukah if you know anyone who loves tea:

          The cheeses from this group of Trappist monks are delicious. I'm familiar with the mild, smoked, and aged. All very good. The boozey fudge is good, too.

          I once received a package of Penzey's spices in the mail and enjoyed it so much that I give that to those I think will like it, too.

          1. 1) Royal Riviera pears from Harry & David. 2) Almond macaroons from Fralinger's, 3) Chocolate-covered black walnuts from Hammon's. 4) See's chocolates. All perfection.
