I think it’s a solid assumption to say that almost everyone I know loves to eat. Sure, some of them don’t like to actually cook the food that they consume, but they relish the final results nonetheless. Just like free samples passed out at your local grocery store, the best food gifts are definitely well-received (in my humble opinion, of course—feel free to LMK if you disagree.)
While chocolate boxes in luxe wrapping paper and the go-to fancy bottle of Pinot Noir or champagne are always pretty safe gift options to give on basically any occasion or holiday, there are actually plenty of less obvious and more unique food, dessert, and beverage gifts that will make surely satisfy the taste buds of the giftee in question. And of course, they are far less likely to be re-gifted to someone on their own holiday shopping list.
From deluxe ready-made cakes delivered in temperature-controlled packaging so they can be shipped right to their door to gut-healthy, probiotic-spiked popcorn tins, the best foods gift have one thing in common: they’re the item your giftee would probably not buy for themselves, but will undoubtedly enjoy.
