Christmas Food Gifts - Giving Edible Gifts For Christmas

What's the best Christmas gift you can give a foodie? An edible Christmas gift, that's what! I bet you can take your Christmas list right now and check it off name by name just by writing in each person's favorite food. Let's give it a try.

For Me? You can get me something coffee to satisfy my cravings and if you really want me totally sated, just add some milk chocolate. Now, for Mr. Witch, you can find a gourmet assortment of Popcorn and he will be as happy as a clam in it's shell. My children each like a different sweet treat, for Jen, it would be pears ... anything with pear flavoring. Kris would like a cheese basket, Jeff likes cheesecake and James would love anything that has to do with beers, including making his own brews. My sister is a seafood lover and the picture from Amazon. Now, that took me about one minute, see how easy it would be to knock off your entire shopping list with edible gifts! Don't forget wines, beers, sodas and liquid treats while shopping for the best edible gift ideas.

I've loaded up this page with all the delicious edible gift ideas I could find. One suggestion I have to help you with your shopping is don't worry if the gift is large or small. It's the thought that counts and no one needs an over abundance of their favorite treats and foods, they just need samples of them. They are going to appreciate how much thought you put into this gift and they will love it! You are going to be remembered as the best gift giver for a long time to come, so enjoy the ease of your shopping and the perfection of your gift selections!

Beer Christmas Gift Ideas

Beer Gift Ideas For The Aficionado In Your House

Yes, there's a Beer of the Month Club too! Recent shipments have including brews like: Millstream Brewery in Iowa: Oatmeal Stout and White Ale - Abita Brewery in Louisiana: IPA and Turbo Dog Lager - Sand Creek Brewery in Wisconsin: English Ale and Woody's Wheat - Atlanta Brewery in Georgia: Pale Ale and Red Ale. Each month 12 bottles, four different varieties are sent. Send it once, send it twice, send it thrice, you decide how long your gift will last.

Another choice for the beer aficionado on your holiday gift list is a home brewing set. Mr. Beer can help you out here. There are many different sets you can choose from.

Here's another gift idea and it is a great one! My son enjoys brewing his own beer and his first batch was brewed at a "Brew On Premise" site in New Jersey. It was a gift from his girlfriend and it was a great gift idea. Check your area and see if there are any home brewers where you can go and select your recipe from about 200, gather the ingredients, brew, cool the wort and add the yeast mix. Come back in a week after your beer has fermented, the brewers pour it into a keg and store it in a cold room. In a week or two you come back and bottle it. Voilà! If you live in the NJ area you might want to give this to your friend for Christmas! Brewers Apprentice is where you can find the information, and you can also make mead and's a great gift idea!
