When gifting bread, which loaf shape do you usually choose?
I've gifted a number of baguettes to friends and family of late. I usually shape baguettes by default, since my family's ratio preference leans heavily towards the crust. We consume the bread as an accompaniment to dinner or as morning toast -- we rarely have sandwiches. Makes me wonder if the giftees would find boules more useful, to use in sandwiches. I should mention these are not particularly large loaves.
I'm fairly certain people are happy to get bread in any form, but I'm curious about what shape you usually gift, and your reason(s) for preferring that shape.
Thank you, and happy baking :)
