Food gift for remote non-foodie co-workers?

rotary11 | Dec 13, 2006 02:03 AM

Here's a question designed to stump my fellow 'Hounds. I'd like to get gifts for the folks in my work group (I know, terribly old-fashioned!). And of course, I'd like them to do have the side effect of introducing them to some interesting (but accessible) new food. Here's the catch(es):
1. Pretty diverse group, and not all of them are "foodies" (although there aren't any significant dietary restrictions, and they're all good sports)
2. They all live too far away from me for me to just hand them something, so it needs to be mailable.

Basically, that comes down to something mail order or a gift card for someplace good that ships. I considered sending them gift cards from my favorite place (Zingerman's Deli, Ann Arbor), but thought that was too specific and maybe not fun for everyone. I'd like to spend $25 or so per person and I'd it to arrive by X-Mas. How's that for a challenge?

Any great ideas? Thanks for helping out a fellow "Hound at work"!
