Christmas is almost here! But if you waited until the last minute, you aren't completely out of luck. While you may not be able to get something in time for Christmas, you can still buy something amazing for your family and friends. While it's not ideal, printing out a picture of what you're getting them and putting it in a card is a good way to let them know that you did think of them during this special time of year. Just say that UPS didn't cooperate. They don't need to know whether that's true or not.

And if you're still looking for something for the foodie in your life, we have a few great unique gifts that will be perfect for them.

Taco vs. Burrito

While you may not have thought of a game when you were thinking about gifts for your favorite foodie, you really can't go wrong with Taco vs. Burrito, especially if the person you're giving it to is a foodie who loves to spend time with their family and friends. To play (and win), you simply have to create the most valuable meal using the taco or burrito shells and the cards you receive. Have fun making a meal, beating your brother or sister, and spending time away from social media for a while. What could be a better gift than that?

Hedley Bennett aprons

Now for something any foodie or cook will love. The Hedley Bennett aprons are well-made, roomy, and absolutely gorgeous. Oh, and they come in Star Wars, Christmas, and Disney designs. You really can't go wrong here. And if you want to make one of these aprons part of a basket, don't forget some pans, their favorite snack, and maybe a few utensils. You can really make it a completely unique gift.

Cook Unity Subscription Box

Can you ever go wrong with a food subscription box? I think not. Not only are you giving your special someone the gift of food, but with a subscription, you're giving them future gifts as well. And unlike other meal subscription boxes, with Cook Unity, all the meals are made by award-winning chefs so you know everything is going to taste delicious. To gift this box, you can either buy a gift card or make an account for your family member or friend.

Gobble's Holiday Box

The Gobbles Holiday Box could not be a more perfect gift and considering their latest box celebrates New Year's, it's perfect as a last-minute gift. The box includes a whole smorgasbord of food, including Rastelli’s Prime Rib Roast (4 lbs.) seasoned with spiced compound butter and served with Au Jus and horseradish cream sauce, Yukon gold mashed potatoes, roasted Brussel sprouts & root vegetables, cheddar & Gruyère creamed spinach, rosemary & Gruyère biscuits, and warm molten chocolate lava cake with a cherry-orange compote.

Harry & David

Harry & David is the perfect gift no matter what time of year it is. Whether you're gifting cakes, cookies, popcorn, or charcuterie, everything is delicious and sure to be appreciated. Some of their most unique items include their Tower of Treats Signature Holiday Gift, Santa's Sack of Treats, The Big Book of Christmas Cookies (yes, please), and the ultimate Harry & David 12, 6 & 3 Month Food Clubs. Whether the gift is on time or late, your friend or family member will not care when it's Harry & David.
