Fruit gift baskets are not just for the winter holiday season anymore though that is the only time a lot of people think about sending them. Of course, they do make a great winter treat for those snowbirds stuck in the north shoveling out there store. There is little better in the world than the sunny taste of a navel or temple orange from Florida.
But truth be told a basket full of bountiful fruit and fruity delights can brighten the life of a loved-one or friend no matter what the occasion. Image the look on a friend’s face as the open the delivery box and reveal the glorious gift of luscious citrus and other tasty treats.
Fruit gift baskets come in all shapes and sizes. People can send a gift that consists just of sweet and juicy Florida oranges or they can send a basket mixed with fruit and fruit related products like peach salsa or peach cider. Some gift baskets even come with other sweet treats like brittle and honey!
There are a million occasions to treat a loved-one to a fruit gift basket, but there are a few times when one of these is not only a great gift, but a truly thoughtful one.
One of the best times to give a basket of fruit as a gift is when someone is feeling under the weather. A person can not only brighten another person’s inner spirit that can actually help them get over what ails them with all the vitamins and minerals packed behind the rind of a precious citrus fruit. Couple that fruit with a nice flavored honey that they can add to their tea for some soothing comfort.
Another great time to give a fruit gift basket it is when someone moves into a new house or apartment. A basket full of treats can help them stay nourished at a very busy time of packing and unpacking. Giving the gift of fruit will allow them something healthy and tasty to eat instead of junk food from the local corner store. Plus the vitamins will help keep the strong as the muddle through their new abode.
One other great time to give the gift of a fruit basket is to a loving teacher. No more giving just a plain old apple. After all the teacher has done for the kids don’t they deserve a basket full of great fruit and fruity treats as a thank you for a great year?
No matter the occasion fresh fruit baskets are a thoughtful and practical gift for anyone who loves the taste of citrus goodness.
