Tis the season to eat, drink and be merry! And when it comes to satisfying those on your holiday list, some of the most appreciated gifts are specialty gourmet foods. There are so many options in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex that it makes shopping for neighbors, co-workers and friends a breeze. Choose from Chocolatiers, Cheese Shops, Sausage Purveyors and Popcorn Shops to round out that perfect gift basket for a boss or a treat to give to the hostess of a holiday gathering. These items are great for year-round giving but are made extra special during the season with festive colors and creations.
