4. Garrett Popcorn Shops

People line up on the streets of Chicago to get into Garrett popcorn shops and enjoy some of the fresh popcorn.

Send the classic, buttery, Caramelcrisp or holiday-themed flavors like Gingerbread Caramelcrisp for a delicious snack throughout the holidays.

3. Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

Yes, ice cream might not be the first thing to come to your mind for a Christmas food gift, but this Ohio and Tennessee ice cream shop offers delicious holiday flavors on their online store that your friends and family would love to receive. With flavors like boozy eggnog and sweet potato with torched marshmallows, you can spread a little Christmas cheer with some festive ice cream flavors.

2. Williams-Sonoma

Whether you like their peppermint bark, croissants, pastries or the hot chocolate mix with homemade marshmallows, there is something for everyone at Williams-Sonoma. Ship off some appetizers or sides to make cooking around the holidays a heck of a lot easier. Add a package of toffee or other candies and everyone will love you.

1. Harry & David

Each year my mom sends family members a package of juicy and delicious pears from Harry & David. But if you're more of a chocolate fan, send some truffles, bark or petits fours to your friends and family. You can also choose from a variety of savory products, like ham, pot pies or varieties of cheese and meats.
