Discovering Secret Pleasures: Gift Boxes & More

May 15, 2008
When the time comes for me to receive a present of any kind, I know I like nothing more than good, hearty gift boxes. These are a great way to pack a lot into a small space, but you will also find a box is a lot easier to ship than a basket. In fact, many of the items you receive in the mail will generally come in some sort of box.

Gift boxes are a great idea for any occasion. Whether you have fiesta salsa bowls, salsa, or cactus napkin holders, you will find that there is something extremely pleasing about receiving as well as sending great gifts that have the personal touch you can appreciate.

More and more of these gifts are turning to cuisine of one sort or another. In fact, you will find a great coffee box is going to be as popular as a superb box filled with the best in Mexican cuisine. But there is more to a cuisine than the edible food.

Mexican blankets, tequila shot glasses, and even handcrafted Christmas decorations will make a great keepsake that, if of high quality, will last a lifetime of memories and special occasions. These are even more important than edibles that may simply be gone in a few moments, or worse, the edible portion of your gift boxes are not even liked!

When it comes to secret pleasures, I have to admit a soft spot for Mexican Christmas decorations. These are so cute and they last forever. The bright, holiday colors, and the chili designs make them beautiful and playful at the same time. Not only are these perfect for any box, but they are great if you add one to the tag.

Something I think adorable and silly is the hot sauce holster. If you happen to be a Chili Head, you understand the importance of this versatile and reliable tool though. Have your hot sauce on hand with just a flip of your wrist!

If you are considering something extra special, try adding a tortilla bowl baker or taco shell maker to the box to allow your favorite person or family the ability to make the best in fresh food for their own family. This is a great gift that says you care.

Of course, if you are like me, you will love a good pair of onion goggles. You heard me right - onion goggles! Slip into these onion goggles and you will not have any more tears when slicing and dicing onions. A great tip I might add for relieving the tearing associated with onions is to leave the center of the onion for last. If you cut from the outsides first, you will find a lot of your tears are no more.

When it comes to choosing the best gift boxes for your family or friends, you will find the Mexican culture offers a great deal of personal touches that will serve you and your gift recipient well. These fun ideas are going to be received well, and you will find that if you give kitchen tools, the next meal you eat at his or her house will be all that much better.
