So my Dad is old and blind and lives pretty far away from me and I can't be with him for Christmas. We've pretty much exhausted the talking books and clothing route for presents. One of his few remaining pleasures is food and people usually send him lots of cheeses, wine, and chocolates. Among the things he used to really enjoy which he doesn't get any more are home-made cookies, little mince pies and fruitcake (not the store-bought bricks but the real thing). So I thought I would send him a care package of Christmas cooking from my home. Does anyone have any experience with shipping cookies, etc? The mince pies are rather fragile. Tips and advice would be appreciated!
