When your friends and family tell you exactly what they want for the holidays, life is good. When they don’t (which is pretty much always), gifting is hard as hell. Avoid the awkwardness of buying a size large when they’re a medium and forgo the fake smiles when you receive something fugly. Become a holiday hero by following our 4-part gift guide of food-related items that nobody can say no to.
