Ten Gifts You Can Pick Up at the Grocery Store.
Assortment of cheeses, sausages, crackers, and — depending on the liquor laws in your state — a bottle of wine. You can also add an assortment of mustards and nuts if your budget allows. Basket optional.
Let the grocery store do it and save yourself the work. Almonds, cashews, pecans, peanuts, and the herbs and spices to make
spiced nuts. Gift card for groceries.
Always welcomed by college students and struggling 20-somethings. Yarn to make a quick hat or scarf.
Note: this one only applies if you live in Iceland, where grocery stores carry yarn. Ingredients for really good cocoa, plus cinnamon sticks or
homemade marshmallows. Chocolate, condensed milk, nuts, other supplies to make fudge, plus a pretty container to hold it.
Ingredients to make an assortment of Christmas cookies, plus pretty holiday plates to hold them.
Basket with pears, blue cheese, and crackers.
Note: I am currently accepting all such baskets; no need to give it to anyone else. A couple USDA Prime steaks.
I gave this gift to a neighbor one year for his birthday; he and his wife were at the stage of life when they were downsizing and didn’t want any more stuff.
