Christmas is a season of friendships, family and of course gift giving. The tradition of giving Christmas presents dates back to a wealthy philanthropist of the third century St. Nicholas who was known for his generosity with poor people and children.
Now Christians and non-Christians alike celebrate the holiday by gathering together and exchanging gifts. From humble beginnings of homemade sweets tucked into stockings in the name of St. Nicholas, Christmas gifts today are incredibly versatile and can vary from small hand made cards to luxurious Christmas gift baskets filled with gourmet foods, beverages, chocolate, spa products, gardening and sport items or anything else.
GOURMET GIFT BASKETS
As well as any other gifts gourmet baskets can be very different depending on the number of the recipients and their preferences. For your family and friends choose a practical holiday decorated hamper that has a nice selection of savory treats to satisfy any palate. If there are kids in the family make sure your basket includes candy, cookies, chocolate or fruit and a plush toy for the younger ones.
Business gourmet baskets for partners, customers, corporate clients or employees are traditionally more formal and sophisticated. Classy and upscale such hampers usually include an assortment of artisan cheese, meat, olives, crackers, and other savory snacks along with exotic fruit, chocolate, coffee and wine. The more recipients you have on the list the bigger the basket you should choose to make sure everyone enjoys your generous gift.
WINE & CHAMPAGNE GIFTS
There’s no better way to impress a client, business partner, friend or family member than with a classy and elegant wine gift basket for Christmas. The careful presentation and selection of the contents of the basket will set it apart from the rest. You can even create your own hamper to add a more personal touch. However, if time and creativity escape you there is a great selection of gifts to choose from.
Either it’s a single bottle of expensive wine or champagne; modest and elegant gift set with wine, chocolate and flowers; luxurious gift hamper overflowing with gourmet treats and wines meant for a big party; or romantic gift with spa products, chocolate, and a bottle of bubbly; make sure the style of your gift and its content is appropriate to the occasion and your relationship with the recipient.
