Gifts to eat, drink and be merry

As people attempt to reduce their material possessions, consumable gifts are becoming a popular, moderately priced way to share holiday cheer. All it takes is a little knowledge about the recipient’s preferences to give a gift that shows your thoughtfulness – just be sure you are considerate of food allergies and aversions.

The gift idea guide has suggestions for chocolate, coffee and sweets lovers, wine connoisseurs, Hokies and Hoos fans, restaurant-lovers and more to help to you find a tasty treasure for everyone on your list.
