Holiday Gift Basket

A holiday food gift basket is one of the easiest ways to gift something unique and personalized this season. Some say that the key to someone’s heart is through their stomach and we have to agree - there’s always something special about getting fun snacks! Choosing healthy options based on someone’s favorite food flavors with respect to their dietary preferences is a very special and personalized way to show someone that you know them well this holiday season. Instead of the usual boring line-up, we’re sharing some fun, delicious, and healthier choices to include in a holiday snack gift basket for your family and friends. Here’s a list of items to add into a unique holiday gift basket:

  • Turkey Meat Snacks
CHOMPS turkey meat snacks like the Jalapeno or Pepperoni Seasoned Turkey are perfect healthy options to add both flavor and protein to any dietary lifestyle. Plus, because they’re individually wrapped they’re a convenient and mess-free snack option that works great in a variety of gift baskets and boxes.

  • Chocolate

There’s nothing better than getting the perfectly wrapped box of decadent chocolates as a gift - but make it a little healthier this season! One study shows that eating high flavanol cocoa may improve blood flow to the brain. Check out these vegan and paleo chocolates from Hu Kitchen that’s sweetened with unrefined organic coconut sugar, available in a variety of flavors.

  • Specialty Cookies

It’s not a holiday season without seasonal cookies! These Siete Foods Mexican Wedding cookies are a unique and delicious option that’s also grain-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free.

  • Tea Gift Box Set

Herbal teas come in a wide range of flavors and tastes so it’s easy to personalize based on individual preference. Camomile teas are known for their calming effect, while teas like peppermint are commonly used to support a healthy digestion. We love this organic tea gift box set from Pukka Teas that has a little something for everyone!
