Because Christmas is only a few hours away, I would like to know if you give food as gifts. My mom used to give brownies or baked macaroni to all of her friends as a Christmas gift, and in turn we would receive some food as Christmas gifts also like ham, liquor, cookies, etc. I think that during the Christmas season it's ok to give foods as gifts, but during birthdays or anniversaries, then it would be more suitable if you gave that person a more personalized gift. So how about you? Do you tend to give food as a gift during Christmas and on other special occasions? And do you mind if you were only given food as a gift? Since I know some people may feel offended that the person did not take the time to pick out a more personalized gift.
