When it comes to gifting, you can't go wrong with food. But during the holiday season, indulgent food is everywhere. So instead of gifting another box of cookies or tin full of almond bark, opt for a more luxurious yet lighter, savory food gift this year. Many of our delicious gift ideas are good for a long time too, so the recipient can choose to dive in now or wait till a little later when all the fun holiday food is gone.
