New Year is not for nothing called one of the most beautiful and fabulous holidays. Adults and children are waiting for him, linking the coming of the new year with hopes for the future, incredible dreams and, of course, gifts. At the same time, you can become a magician yourself for a while, because any gift presented to a friend, loved one or just a friend creates the feeling of a little miracle. And edible gifts are invariably associated with the warmest childhood memories.
It is impossible to remain indifferent to the selection of fruits, especially if they are unusually decorated. You can present your friends or colleagues with a large basket of exotic fruits, complementing it with the attributes of the New Year, or an original fruit bouquet with a sprig of spruce, bright tangerines, fragrant cinnamon sticks. If we add to this heavenly pleasure the symbol of the coming year, then not only adults, but also children will like this delicious gift.
The history of gingerbread dates back to 2400 BC. But the idea to present original cookies to high-ranking guests belonged to Queen Elizabeth I of England. Today, gingerbread has become one of the most beloved and popular New Year's and Christmas treats. They can be baked either independently or purchased ready-made, decorated with bright glaze or made in special forms. A fabulous gingerbread house donated to relatives, which is invariably associated with winter holidays, can become absolutely exquisite. And if the donor has enough patience and imagination, then you can even collect a real gingerbread tree or bake cookies in the form of New Year's toys. Then it will be quite possible to decorate a real spruce with them.
It seems that no other delicacy has such a variety of shapes, sizes and tastes. Typically, chocolate gifts are desirable for both children and adults. You can give your friends or colleagues an ordinary chocolate bar, decorating it with New Year's tinsel, or a Santa Claus figurine. And also modern pastry shops offer the manufacture of your favorite sweets in the author's design, in the original packaging, or simply according to a specially developed recipe. Today, chocolates or chocolates can combine the bitterness of cocoa with hot pepper, salty splashes of caramel or exotic fruits. However, in whatever form the chocolate gift was made, it will always hit the mark and will certainly delight the person being presented.
This product in our country is invariably associated with the New Year and is an integral part of it. Probably, the tradition of offering guests sandwiches with caviar that was in short supply at that time dates back to Soviet times, when the range was very limited, and red and black caviar were a symbol of prosperity and even wealth. Despite the fact that today the product is constantly on sale, a jar of good caviar for the New Year's table will always be appropriate and accepted with gratitude.
Original sweet jars
It is difficult to surprise anyone with sets of sweets, but it is impossible to remain indifferent to the original bright jars filled with your favorite sweets. You can put not only sweets or cookies in them, but also extraordinary New Year's wishes for a friend or colleague. If the container is decorated with a tiny hat of Santa Claus or a miniature Christmas tree, then the gift will turn out to be not only extraordinary, but also festive and refined.
Tea or coffee set
What could be more beautiful than a set of tea or coffee, which was chosen and packed with soul and love? Only exactly the same set, in a personalized package, with personal wishes for success and prosperity in the coming year. This gift is good because you can choose your favorite varieties of the gifted. If this is an unfamiliar person, then you can stay on a win-win option: good tea and coffee without any flavors.
One of the most popular and most New Year's spirits is, of course, champagne. If you accompany the gift with a commentary about a drink of happiness that can fulfill desires, then champagne will definitely not have to stand for a long time in the bar. It is not for nothing that there is a tradition to burn a note with a desire written on it and drink champagne, after dissolving the ashes in the drink, under the chimes. The main thing here is to have time to do everything before the last strike of the clock strikes.
Gift sets with natural honey are a great solution for the New Year and Christmas, which will surely impress any person. It can be the most ordinary honey, but flower cream honey, whipped on special equipment with the addition of berries and fruits, can deliver much more pleasure. Cute elegant jars filled with natural delicacies can be handed over to both family and colleagues. Moreover, such a gift means a wish for prosperity and health.
What could be more pleasant than a gift that will not only be tasty, but also give the person to be gifted a feeling of celebration and expectation of a miracle. Original fortune cookies can be presented to both a loved one and a stranger. The main thing is to believe that miracles happen in life and to infect with this childishly direct faith in the fairy tale of others.
Sometimes it seems awkward or inappropriate to give edible gifts. However, in this case, there is a way out: you can present an original issued certificate of any of the food supermarkets as a gift, and then the gifted person will be able to choose the products that he needs. Or just to please yourself and your loved ones with something delicious. Fortunately, almost all major food chains now issue such gift certificates.
However, whatever you give, just do it with heart and good mood.
