Show Your Appreciation with a Christmas Gift Basket
Article by M. Cusack
Christmas is known around the world as a sacred religious holiday. It is celebrated in many countries, by people of all ages, genders and social status. Presidents, kings and queens, politicians, inventors, firemen, pilots, librarians, and everyone else who believes in Jesus Christ will put their differences aside, and peacefully join hands in celebration on December 25th.
Christmas is a time for sharing, which often results in buying presents for people important to us. With our gifts, we want to show them how much we appreciate them, their loyalty, and the things they do for us.
Some of the gifts scoring high every year are Christmas gift baskets. A favorite, these compilations of edibles, beverages, kitchen knick knacks, toys and other interesting items are ideal, because they are generally well received and offer a tremendous amount of gifting possibilities. Christmas baskets are versatile, are available in various sizes and can be afforded by anyone. Of course, the more goodies your willow or wicker hamper holds, the more it will cost.
Christmas baskets can be given to anyone. Men and women alike, love rummaging through the many spectacular surprises packed in one convenient container. They are excited about tasting a new type of cracker, a foreign cheese, or an imported wine, items they probably would have never even considered during their weekly trip to the grocery store. Thanks to your generous gift, they now have a chance to experience new aromas, and celebrate Christmas in style.
When preparing your Year End shopping list, think about all the people you truly appreciate. Remember all those you need to show your gratitude to, yes, the ones you could surprise with an amazing Christmas basket.
• Spouse/Partner/Girlfriend: Be extravagant and pick an assembly that includes a bottle of Moet, chocolate covered strawberries, Pistachio Crispbread, creamy Camembert cheese, scented candles, fragrant bath salt and a hand massager.
• Parents: Older people generally appreciate their tea and coffee time. Pick a basket that include a glass coffee/tea plunger, stainless steel cups, an assortment of fine Arabian coffees or herbal teas, a box of Macadamia and Lemon Myrtle Biscotti and a package of seasonal cookies. This assortment is ideal for picnics in the park and road trips.
• Friends and siblings: If your buddies occasionally enjoy ‘Cocktail Hour,’ find a Christmas basket that includes a cocktail shaker, ice tongs, an ice bucket, spirit speed pourers, a selection of pre mixes and a bottle of Bacardi white rum. With a few bags of peanuts and pretzel sticks, you’ll have the most original gift under the tree.
• Customers: You can never go wrong with a good bottle of wine. Add a stylish cooler pack for a ‘spur of the moment ‘ outing, Belgian chocolate seashells, milk truffles and a bag of chili peanuts and you created the perfect corporate Christmas gift.
• Neighbors: Bring a special cheer to the festive season by including your neighbors. They have been helpful all year around, and definitely deserve a token of appreciation. Buy them a Christmas hamper full of goodies, such as fine wafer crackers, fruit and nut nougat, decadent pralines, tropical bonbons, and a bottle of Baileys Irish Cream. Deliver it with a homemade cake, and you can be sure that you will have the best neighbors (and friends) in the entire neighborhood!
