Years ago, when I worked as the manager of a law firm, the holidays meant one thing:
The baskets arrived every day from Thanksgiving on: dried fruit, specialty coffees, fancy cheeses, and chocolate-covered everything, with little cards tucked inside (“Thanks for a great year!”) from clients.
When I started my own business a couple of years later and started sending out holiday presents to associates of my own – including a food-type gift to each office with which I worked – I sifted through my memories of those Christmas baskets, trying to remember what everyone had liked best…and the answer was obvious:
The chocolate-dipped stuff.
I’ve been ordering from Shari’s Berries
Yup yup yup: these things are THE BEST.
My top picks for your holiday gifting purposes:
- The Cake Truffles, in flavors including Almond Joyous and Salted Caramel, which come in an adorable container with hidden messages for the recipient;
- The caramel-dipped, chocolate-covered Christmas Pretzel Rods (especially those tree ones; so fun), which also can be used to add height and color (and deliciousness) to a holiday tablescape;
- The Christmas Dipped Strawberries, which I consumed in truly astounding quantities yesterday afternoon (well, we didn’t want them to go bad, did we?);
- The Snowman Brownie Pops, because aww.
These guys are like friendly Christmastime mascots, and should probably be invited to every holiday celebration.
