Gifts using Herbs and Spices
We have been in the herb and spice business for over 13 years and our customers have given us some great ideas for gift giving.
A gift basket full of just herbs and spices themselves for a bridal shower, a student moving out on their own, a new homeowner, or for anyone who loves to cook and experiment with some of the more uncommon culinary herbs like juniper berries, lavender, turmeric, or cardamom in several forms.
A gift basket combined with cooking gadgets, like a nutmeg grater with the whole nutmeg or a stainless steel tea ball with teas.
Themed basket suggestions – Add prepared sauces; gadgets; dishes; linens; and many other creative items to enhance a most thoughtful gift for anyone of any age.
