Sharing food has long been regarded as a form of social bonding among friends and family. Whether it’s a giant feast during Thanksgiving or a simple lunch date with a close friend, our love for food and conversation brings us closer together.
With how important food is to our lives, it only makes sense to incorporate it into gift-giving customs as well. If you have a friend or family member who enjoys munching on snacks or quick meals, then gifting them great food is a splendid idea.
Try to add a twist to your gift and buy them snacks they wouldn’t usually buy themselves. We’ve compiled a list of organic food that will make for some beloved gifts!
Organic Tea Box
If you want to gift your loved one snacks that will last longer than a bag of chips, we recommend buying some organic tea. Sure, it may sound like a boring gift, but wait till you hear about the beautiful way you can present it!
Instead of picking up a box of teabags, invest in some organic Korean grain tea to really add an element of luxury to your gift. You can buy rare tea blends, so your friend has something new to try every day!
Buy yourself a tea box or multiple small jars and pour your grain tea into its respective containers. Add a lovely note and gift it just like that or with a personalized mug. It’s impossible for your friend to not fall in love with your thoughtful gift.
Ready To Cook Meals
Perhaps the most exhausting part of cooking is finding hard to acquire ingredients and ensuring everything is measured correctly. How about you do these tiresome steps for your friend and get them a ready to cook meal as a birthday present?
If you’ve ever attempted to make an Asian meal, you know how difficult it is to get some of the ingredients. To help your friend with cooking, look up a delicious organic meal recipe, buy Korean groceries online, and organize them to the perfect measurements for your friend.
This way, whenever they feel like they’re in the mood for some delicious Asian food, they can open your gift and start preparing their meal. Not only is it a thoughtful present, but you are also helping your friend explore different cuisines from the comfort of their own home.
Bean Advent Calendar
Long gone are the days where advent calendars were only for the holidays. It’s your friend’s birthday! That is a great cause for celebration. And what better way to celebrate than by presenting them with a gift that keeps on giving; an advent calendar!
Okay, so instead of buying cheap chocolates that your friend munches on for a minute before they’re gone, we’ve found a unique way to present an advent calendar. Swap the unhealthy chocolates and cookies, and replace them with organic beans and lentils. You can accompany your gift with a quick soup recipe they can try, and voila! You’re now the friend who has given multiple delicious soup recipes for your friend to try anytime they want.
Healthy Snack Assortment
You can always surprise them with a basket filled with various snacks for the friend who has it all. From organic biscuits to dried fruits, you can shower your friend with all the healthy snacks they could dream of eating.
If you want to make it more personal, add small food-related puns or notes of motivation to every snack, so they have a smile on their face every time they open one of your gifts! You can also make two separate baskets, one for home and another for their workplace, so they have plenty of food for guilt-free snacking!
Snacks For A New Mommy
Are you in charge of curating a gift for your pregnant friend? We highly recommend tossing away the generic list of baby items and buying something that the new mom would enjoy for herself. After all, she should be pampered during this strenuous time of her life.
Did you know that black sesame seeds are an excellent source of protein for expecting mothers? Many women go through iron deficiency during their pregnancy, which can leave them weak and lethargic. So, you can step in and help your friend get her daily dose of iron with a generous supply of organic raw black sesame seeds! While black sesame seeds can be eaten raw, you could find some helpful black sesame seed recipes that they can make to enjoy the food more as a treat than medication! Of course, make sure to pack it with some of their favorite snacks to munch on.
Exotic Spice Cabinet
No food lover and chef will ever turn down the offer to stock up their pantry, especially with organic and aromatic spices that will add more flavor and color to their dish.
You can get a spice cabinet for your friend from the store and fill it up with hard to acquire herbs and spices to use for their cooking. As any chef would know, it’s always fun to have more ingredients since it opens up the possibility of cooking dishes and experimenting with flavors. The fact that you support your friend’s hobby and are supplying them with the means to make delicious snacks of their own would always be seen as a loving gesture! And who knows, maybe they’ll treat you to some of their delicious cooking!
