Holiday Gift Ideas for Distant Family and Friends
Shopping for a distant family member or friend can be a real challenge. What do they do in their free time? What hobbies are they into? What size sweater do they wear?
When you don’t see a person on a regular basis, it can be tough thinking of a present they’ll truly get a kick out of. Sometimes you’re better off sending them a gift that anybody would enjoy, like something sweet!
Cake and other bakery delights are a favorite of the holiday season, and almost everyone appreciates a gourmet baked good. (Don’t worry — we’ve got ideas for health nuts too).
Here are a few fun suggestions based on the recipient’s personality:
Nothing says “romance” like the color red. Give the passionate people on your list a seductive red velvet cake — two rich red layers of chocolate cake, filled and covered with pure cream cheese frosting, and then garnished with white chocolate sprinkles. That’s amore!
The Morning Person
Got an early riser on your list? Help them make the most of the wee hours of the day with a eye-opening, gourmet coffee cake. We’ve got several scrumptious morning delights to choose from, including cinnamon, raspberry, chocolate, pumpkin, and more. Now that’s how you start the day.
Surprise a veteran on your list and a soldier serving overseas. When you purchase one of our Freedom Cakes for a person in the U.S., we’ll deliver another gourmet cake to an active soldier overseas in the name of your recipient. Each cake features a special card informing the recipient that a cake has been sent to a soldier in their name, alongside an imprint of the American flag.
As far as we’re concerned, the holidays are the perfect time to indulge in sweets. But some people are good all year round. Send the healthy eaters on your list an orchard fresh fruit basket. This attractive wicker basket includes a variety of pears and apples, a navel orange, a kiwi, and a pineapple. We also include sweet onion crackers, pistachios, and smoke gouda to cleanse their palates.

Those are just a few ideas. We’ve got lots of gourmet cakes and bakery items to choose from. Look around — we’re sure you’ll find the perfect gift for the distant family members and friends on your list.
