Why Food (and Cookies) are the Best Holiday Gift
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think about the holidays? It could be endless holiday songs playing in grocery stores or malls. Maybe it’s the upcoming ski trip or travel plans. It might even be holiday parties. 
For many of us, we first think of family. Or friends. We remember good times. We recall laughter. Maybe we regret using the ugly sweater theme for our holiday photo. Plenty of our minds first go to food. And for good reasons.

Food has an extraordinary place in our lives. And there might not be a time when this is on display more so than the holidays. What we decide to eat is about more than just filling our bellies. It gives us life. And it reflects our lives. Food plays a very functional role in fueling our bodies and keeping us healthy. But it is also a symbol of our families, who we are, and what we hold important. This is never truer than during the holidays.
 
Do you have a turkey or a roast? Is your pie pumpkin or sweet potato? Does your latte taste like peppermint chocolate or gingerbread?
 
 

Reasons why food is the best holiday gift

We decided it would be fun to explore some of the reasons food makes for such a great holiday gift.
 

It’s affordable 

Sure, you can spend hundreds of dollars on a steak that is imported from another planet and aged for a century. But you can also give a really meaningful food gift that goes a long way for a small price.
Maybe a gift card to a local restaurant or a kitchen tool that can be used for years.
The holidays can get expensive with travel, time off work, and a variety of other expenses. Providing an inexpensive option is a huge reason food makes for an ideal holiday gift.
 

It’s universal 

Everyone eats, right?
Now, some of us are bigger on food than others. One person seasons and marinates their meat for days while another simply adds a dash of salt.
But everyone—to one extent or another—loves food.
It makes it the universal gift. As long as you mind the ever-growing list of allergies, you really can’t go wrong with gifting food.
 

It’s accessible

Finding that ultra-limited series book or the perfect cut of diamond can be a little tricky.
But food gifts can be found just about anywhere. You can pick them online or simply go to the nearest grocery store.
Not worrying about where to discover that rare item is one reason food makes for such great holiday gifts. Food is really easy to access. 
Your holiday to-do list is already long enough, right?
 

It’s for all ages

It doesn't matter if you are buying a gift for the youngest in the family or the oldest. Food is excellent for all of us. Even the in-betweeners—like teenagers or mid-lifers—love getting food as a gift.
The littlest ones will beam with excitement over a bag of candy. Our parents and grandparents will love that homemade pie or imported coffee.
We couldn't think of another gift idea that defies the boundaries of age as food does. And a gift that transcends generations is a pretty solid reason for being a great idea for holiday giving.
