Some gifts warm the heart and others appease the stomach. Gifts of food and drink baskets are sure to please even those hard-to-buy-for folks on your gift list.

If you have a suds-lover or locavore on your list, if you want to buy an out-of-towner a “made in Eugene” gift or if you know broke college students and recent grads who consider microbrews a luxury, a stocking (Hirons, $9.99) or basket full of the good stuff is an excellent consumable present.

Right as you enter, you’re greeted by posters, cassettes and CDs galore, and then there are the records. Holy shit, sweet, sweet vinyl.

A perfect gift for a family Christmas morning, carolers shivering on your porch or friends and neighbors who love to drop by during the holidays, hot cocoa is an American holiday staple.

Earlier this year, the royal family of Qatar purchased Paul Cézanne’s painting “The Card Players” for a cool $250 million — the highest price ever paid for a painting. Fortunately, this holiday season, you don’t have to be part of the 1 percent to purchase a one-of-a-kind work of art.

The holidays are a time to visit family, devour sugary treats and wear the ugliest clothes imaginable at social events. In an ironic way, of course.

First there was couch surfing, then thanks to the web and social media there was CouchSurfing.org, which let people all over the world find couches to crash on.
