I rely on a category of foolproof holiday gifts when I dont know what to buy someone I give the gift of gluttony. Because nothing is as universal during the holidays as the need to stuff our faces. (January is for ditching those extra five pounds.)
Caramel sauce, freshly roasted coffee beans, truffles made in a cafe and tied up with a ribbon in a pretty box, a meat log, a cheese basket all universal food gifts. Theyre handmade and easily purchased right here in our community, mostly economical and you might even earn bonus points from the recipient for shopping local a worthy endeavor any time of year.
