Food gifts are a favorite of mine for long-distance relatives, and those times I find myself not knowing what to get someone. They apply to every occasion, can easily be made personal to the giftee, and come gifting ready in the mail, so you don't have to worry about them missing out on the excitement of opening their gift. In this post, I'm sharing the best food gifts I've come across over the years, and tips on making them unique to the individual.
What is the Best Mail Order Food?
I've listed below several suggestions that you can mail. I've also included a few things to consider for sending food gifts directly to the receiver.
What to Gift a Person Who Loves Food?
Do they love eating food, or do they love cooking food? If it's enjoying good eats, a pre-made gourmet food gift is the way to go. For the home chef, you could expand your search to include gourmet cooking ingredients such as finishing salts, olive oils, spices, and jams.
When deciding what fits best with their foodie palate, think about the following:
