    I’d rather have a fleece.

    The pears would go to waste in our house since Darling Husband doesn’t eat fruit and I probably couldn’t eat them all before they went bad.

    I do really like pears though.

    I’m freezing cold at the moment, so the fleece wins out.

    I guess these are some special pears?? I think a fleece just because I would have a raised eyebrow moment if I opened pears as a Christmas present.

    I’m sorry but I think food is a weird gift.  Especially something that could be bought at the grocery store. I’m with your husband on this one.  Get the Fleece.

    I would like organic pears.  My sister and BIL always send food- local meats and cheeses and we love it.  Darling Husband loves to eat (high metabolism!)  I would love some local cheese, personally.

    I love food item gifts, so that’s what I would choose.  This year, we bought everyone wine or cheese baskets for christmas; super easy and I think they’ll be crowd pleasers.

    I’ve always wanted to try the Harry & David pears to see if they are all they are cracked up to be, and I hate getting clothes for presents, so the pears get my vote.

    I think food is a great idea. However, just pears might be odd. I like some of H&D’s mixed baskets–cheese, choco and fruit YUM!

    EDIT– I have to admit my dream gift is to get fruit of the month, but damn it is so expensive!

    I voted pears because those ones are supposed to be delicious!  Also, I love pears!  I agree, they probably have enough warm weather clothes.  Also, I LOVE the idea of cheese.  But this is all coming from a foodie.

    I like food items, but perhaps these people don’t eat a lot of fruit or veggies?

    I live in Cleveland and it’s cold here. You can’t have too many fleece items and cold weather gear! I always end up losing my gloves/hats or misplacing them and I love when people buy nice hats/gloves/scarves for me as I can always use more.

    I voted for the fleece(befoe I saw they were H&D), but your talking Harry and Davids pears, I would be all over those.  I may have to treat myself to one while shopping this weekend, yum.

    I’m all for food gifts as well, but I think you can make the gift a little more special. You could make homemade jam with the pears, it’s not hard to do and it will last longer than just giving them fruit ( To be fair I’m not familar with the store you are buying them from). 

    @kerensa: If they don’t, more of a reason to give it as a gift IMO Tongue Out
