When you can't send homemade, what food do you send for Christmas presents?

Especially looking for savory. A gluten free site might be good too.

      I usually send a Zingermans gift basket. They have wonderful assortments of meats, cheese, baked goods, oils. etc

        Harry and David's Royal Riviera pears. They are enormous and flavorful and so juicy that the juice runs down your arms while you are eating them.

          Smoked fish! I am a huge fan of Russ and Daughters in NYC (as is my father in law)

                Cheese, wine, nice oils and vinegars- items that don't have to be consumed immediately.
                Igourmet has a great selection:
                And i am a big fan of la tienda also, they have a great selection of olives too....

                  +1 on La Tienda. Their smoked olive oil is crazy good. Use as a finishing oil or for salad dressing or just bread dipping. Sent bottles to my siblings last year for Christmas.
