Gift Baskets, A Smart Gift – Part 3
Sending a gift basket with artisan products is a great way to show you care. Most artisan products are produced in a sustainable and often organic way which also shows your care for this planet we live on. Plus they often taste so much better than your commerically made items. I know this from the many tastings we hold at our shop. People take a bite of our Sicillain Village Olives for example, and we hear the exlamations. They stand out and people notice. Yeah, Godiva has a pretty gold box, but one bite of Norman Love Chocolates will be unforgettable, as will your Chocolate Gift Basket. Have us put your name on the box in some way and it will stand out even more.
USA all the way.
I am the first to admit a love of the wines and foods of France and Italy, but I am increasingly impressed by the craftsmen we have in America that are making excellent cheese, chocolate and wine daily. The Norman Love chocolates and the Beehive cheese gift basket pictured here are excellent examples.
We are also carrying more and more artisan cheese from the U.S. It is lovely to eat and we enjoy supporting our American farmers, many whom we have met. Wines, salamis, cookies and the like all follow suit. There is so much being created in America we want to celebrate it, although we don’t want to totally exclude the charms of Europe, either.
Another offering you might like to check out is our California Harvest, a wine gift basket featuring the wines of California winemaker Bill Arbios.
