Then, if you’ve ever received a gift voucher, a picture frame, candles or a random skincare product as a gift, you surely didn’t go head over heels. It’s not that these presents aren’t good or practical, but they are somewhat generic and don’t show how much you care or how well you know the person.

Maybe it’s an inside joke, their favourite piece of candy from childhood, the drink they’ve ordered when you first met them etc. When it comes to gift-giving, it’s the little things that matter and it’s the thought that counts. Of course, you don’t have to rely solely on your food gift box, you can use it to upgrade a mediocre gift and truly WOW your special someone.

There’s a Nuts for Nutella box that overflows with this nectar of the Gods. It includes 4 Nutella loaded doughnuts which comfortably rest on yummy caramelized popcorn.

Feeling romantic? Then, you can opt for an edible bouquet instead of a box. It’s not that flower bouquets aren’t good enough, but some of them can be very expensive and if you opt for a single rose wrapped in plastic than you’re better off without it. Plus, as previously said, the easiest way to someone’s heart is through their stomach and an edible bouquet ends up in a tummy whereas flowers end up in the trash.
However, you can have the best of both worlds thanks to the innovative food gurus out there. For instance, you can choose an edible bouquet that’s decorated with faux roses which can be used as décor for many years to come after the goodies are gone. You can add mini alcohol bottles that can be kept as collector’s items or throw in a teddy bear that’ll witness about the coolest gift ever received.
