As we’re leading to the holiday season, our wallets look thinner while our waistlines start expanding. Giving, receiving and indulging are all part of the festivities but come January, the treadmill is being worked overtime. On the good note, there are ways for the whole family to enjoy November and December without melting your credit card and breaking the zipper on dress pants. There are gift choices galore in the mall, store and online to purchase but this usually includes calorie content busters and before you know it, you’ve exceeded your budget. This year, try healthy gift baskets. Here are a few ideas for healthy gift baskets that will still look fabulous and taste delicious. This healthy gift basket discussion is sponsored by Roberts Ferry Nut Company.
Healthy Gift Basket Ideas
Nuts and Dried Fruits Gift Baskets
Roberts Ferry Nut Company is one new choice to consider for gifting and self-splurging. With good timing for the holidays, they are now taking online orders. For three decades, they’ve sold millions of natural nuts, chocolate coated and glazed nuts, handcrafted popcorn, almond butter and dried fruit at their Waterford, CA store. From their 1000+ acres of premium California almonds grown on their Sperry Farm (5th generation California farmers), you can purchase all these goodies for delivery to yourself, friends and family. It beats fighting the traffic to then push through the store, and pay overinflated prices for gifts that usually are returned in January or re-gifted back to you the following year, by mistake.
Gourmet Caramel Popcorn Gifts
This is not just any nut company though! Roberts Ferry has been featured on The Today Show, and the Wall Street Journal has voted as the ‘Top Popcorn’ in the nation. If you’ve ever purchased popcorn at the Empire State Building or at Disneyland, you enjoyed Roberts Ferry Nut products so you already know they’re a sure bet. If Mickey Mouse and New York’s most famous building have given their approval, we are positive you will too!
Personalized Family and Corporate Gift Baskets and Tins
Their healthier gift products also include family and corporate gifts ($15.00-$110.00), which can be personalized. Aunt Edna will appreciate your kind words on the basket when it’s shipped to her home, just in time for Thanksgiving and over December. For business gifts, your boss will also be surprised to receive a gift box or tin on his desk, which may nudge him towards considering you for that promotion;) Maybe you’ll think about buying a few selections of dried fruit ($1.75-$5.50) and dropping a bag off door to door, like we did in the old days.
Candied Almonds or Almond Butter
Since almonds are one of the single most nutritious foods, you know that when the kids grab a handful of nuts before a winter walk in the snow, they’re gaining energy and receiving protein in abundance. While everyone’s tucked up watching the game on television, snacking on dried fruit will provide health benefits for their bones and mouth.
If you’re also running out of time and not sure what to buy cousin Jonathan, it’s easy to order a gift certificate (mailed or emailed) so Jonathan and his expanding family can splash out on a nutty New Year selection for their celebration party. In a way, it’s your healthy gift to them to start the new year with a bounce in their step.
Possibly, your New Year resolution was to eat healthier and manage your budgets, so this holiday season, you will have reached your goal. It’s the time of the year that you, your family, friends and relatives should go nuts and start January on the right foot!
