If you’re looking for a gift to give the person who needs nothing and has most anything they want, an consumable gift is the way to go. Here’s the most edible gift guide of all.
I know we talked earlier and said that I wouldn’t be creating any gift guides for you this year. But as I was getting ready to purchase a gift for The Mister’s boss and his family, I decided I’d share just this one gift guide with you.

THE PERFECT GIFT FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS IT ALL
When giving gifts to our friends, pastors, neighbors, teachers, or colleagues, it can be hard to know what to give that makes an impact, doesn’t break the bank but doesn’t look like you cheaped out. There, I said it!
And if you’re on the receiving end of any of those gifts, you know we all have that stash of candles and trinkets stashed somewhere to be regifted or put in a the next garage sale because it wasn’t quite our size or style. You know there’s not one of us who needs yet another candle… unless, of course, it’s a Capri Blue Volcano candle; there’s always room for one more. 😉
I don’t know about you, but I am blessed enough to have everything I need. And I imagine most of my friends and family do too. So it’s why I love to give and receive edible gifts. They’re lovely to keep for me or share at holiday get-togethers.
While gifting a tray of homemade cookies or a jar of treats like these Cinnamon Roasted Pecans may be the most economical way to go, having a gift box or basket sent directly to the gift recipient frees us up to do other things this busy holiday season.
So I thought I’d share a few of my favorite treats that I’ve been fortunate enough to receive over the years and have loved getting.
We’re down to the last days for Christmas shipping deadlines, but I don’t think anyone would mind if a gift arrived between Christmas and New Year. Do you? Let’s take the pressure off ourselves in more ways than one and go with the flow.
HERE’S THE MOST EDIBLE GIFT GUIDE OF ALL
This is one of my favorite things to get. These apples are loaded with all kinds of toppings and the apples are always crisp and fresh inside. I’ve never had a mealy apple. They are available on Amazon as well as through Mrs. Prindable’s directly.
Okay, my brother and sister-in-law sent us an assorted box of these soft pretzels last Christmas, and because I didn’t think they looked that great, I stuck them in the freezer and forgot about them. Then one evening, I needed a snack for our Littles, so I pulled these out and baked them. HOLY YUM, BATMAN!
Each shape and size are good, but the pretzel bites are our faves. Now, I always keep some in the freezer. No, kidding.
TIP: Brush them with melted real butter when they come out of the oven. SHAZAM!
I gave Omaha Steak gift boxes to my parents, my brother, and his family, and they received high praise. They’re a bit expensive, but one of my sisters and I went in together, making it more affordable for us both. These make great gifts for anyone, but I think they are extra special for those on a fixed income because they are quality cuts of meat they might not be able to afford regularly.
My mom gifts us and my kids’ tins of popcorn every year. She sends the tin with a trio of popcorn flavors early in the month, so we’re all set to watch all the holiday movies. The Littles say that MomMom Mullins makes the best popcorn. 😉
If you’re a cookie fan and don’t want to make them, Cheryl’s gourmet cookies come in a wide variety of flavor combinations; think salted caramel with vanilla buttercream frosting, individually wrapped and put in pretty holiday tins. My mom sent a tin to us a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve had to hide them from Mr. Dimples so he doesn’t overindulge.
I’ve never received one of these dried fruit platters, but if dried apricots are involved, I’m a fan! I’m even one who loves dried plums, a.k.a. prunes. Would it be wrong to send one of these to myself?
HAVE YOU GIVEN ANY OF THESE EDIBLE GIFTS?
Do you have a favorite consumable gift you give? Homemade or store bought? I’m always looking for me good ones.
In case you were wondering, The Mister Boss is getting a box of those delicious Eastern Standard Provisions Pretzels. I hope they love them as much as we do.
