Gift Baskets: a Time-Honored Tradition

Gift Baskets come from the tradition of sending bottles of honey to loved ones on holidays and special occasions. This tradition dates back to 30 B.C. as an offering of tribute.

For centuries it was a tradition to send bottles of honey to friends and family, or to offer honey as a tribute or payment. This tradition spanned thousands of years. What many do not realize, is that we still honor this tradition to this day through the giving of Gift Baskets.

Sweet Delights and Delicacies

Gift Baskets contain a wide variety of foods, items, wines, sweets, and more. These heavenly blends provide those we care about some of the most lavish delights one could want. They continue by representing caring and compassion by encompassing a larger view of what holidays stand for: They stand for unity, putting behind us the issues of the year past, and a deeper knowing of the people we care about most.

It’s all the little things…

Sometimes when it comes to those we hold most dear, it’s the little things that matter most. Knowing the interests and tastes of someone shows the time and effort placed on that relationship. Knowing that your loved one prefers Jamaican Rum Cake to plain chocolate cake, or Raincoast Rosemary Raisin Biscuits rather than plain crackers – means that you know them through and through. It’s not the items at hand, but your deeper understanding that can make the biggest difference.

Gift Baskets can be Grand, or they can be Quaint, but they all show that special attention to detail. This Holiday Season, be sure to give a gift that matters the most. The gift of knowing your loved one, and the delicacies they prefer.
