Yesterday, we talked about some of the more traditional options for edible holiday gifts.  So, I thought today I would share some less traditional options. No, this doesn’t mean that they are going to be crazy options.  However, they are options that are just not what you necessarily expect in a basket of goodies for family and friends.
