Show your friends, relatives and party hosts that you care with a gift box or basket. Here are ideas for everyone on your list.
Honey for your honey:
Anyone with a sweet tooth will love to receive a selection of bottles filled with golden Ontario honey.
Add a few types of Ontario cheese (goat and Gouda go well with honey), apples and a box of crackers.
Pack up a box of Apple, Walnut and White Chocolate Cookies and tie it with a festive ribbon.
Make your own creamy mushroom pasta sauce, pour it into a glass jar and pack it in a decorative
container with a box of dry pasta and a wedge of Ontario Asiago cheese for grating.
A breakfast lover’s basket:
Fill a basket with dry pancake mix, a bottle of Ontario maple syrup and a small cured Ontario ham.
For the ultimate breakfast basket, include homemade scones and a bottle of your favourite summer preserves.
With its deep red petals, a potted amaryllis is a perfect gift this time of year. Red poinsettias, North America’s most popular holiday plant, also make great gifts. Make sure to include a note to tell the recipient to refrigerate any perishable gift items.
