TGATP Holiday Must: Whole Foods Gift Boxes!
TGATP is a big Whole Foods fan! I avidly shop there twice a week, so I am very happy to announce that just in time for the holiday season, Whole Foods Market has launched their first-ever gift box line! With five different themes the nifty boxes are available online at www.wholefoodsmarket.com/giftbox. Ranging from $40 to $60 each (plus shipping), the selections all adhere to the company’s high quality standards, meaning that all of the featured goodies are free of artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, sweeteners and hydrogenated fats.
““During the busy holiday season, we hope our gift boxes provide a simple shopping solution along with peace of mind, as all five assortments meet the same quality standards that have defined Whole Foods Market for 30 years.” said Jim Speirs, global vice president of purchasing for Whole Foods Market, “From snacking to relaxation, we carefully selected the ideal products to fit the theme of each gift box. They are easy to send by ordering online and are sure to please everyone on your shopping list and they won’t break the holiday budget,”
These boxes all make great gifts for your family or anyone else you are spending the holidays with!
The five specially themed boxes are:
The Gift of Grub ($60):
The problem with ties, collectible porcelain figurines and even fruitcakes, is that you can’t eat them! Instead, send this gift of epic edibility. From all-natural summer sausage, pretzel crisps and aged cheddar cheese straws, to organic peppermint stick chocolate, classic shortbread and gourmet pecans, this choice is perfect for snackers of all ages. The kind folks at Whole Foods sent me this box as a sampler so me and my family will be chowing down on these snacks for Thanksgiving.
You’re Zenzational ($60):
Send some soothing vibes by giving a collection of some of the best body care products around. With its lotions and potions, this gift box array will relax anyone on your shopping list. It includes soothing lavender lotion and shower gel, mineral bath salts, pillow mist, a sleep mask, a bath pillow, and even a candle and tea to further calm the soul.
Get Warm, Get Fuzzy ($50):
Inside this box is a steamy selection of sundries that say “you’re awesome.” Send a piping hot cup of gratitude with this collection of specialty coffee, tea, and hot chocolate paired with sweet treats like gourmet caramel sweetener, fruit-and-nut mix, mocha wafer rolls, biscotti bites and dark chocolate espresso beans.
You Rock Box o’ Choc ($50):
A feast of cocoa-themed goodness is sure to please all of your chocolate-loving friends. This bottomless box of all things chocolate includes organic and Fair Trade selections of chocolate bars, a gift collection of chocolates, dipped sandwich cookies and brownie bites, peanut butter chocolate wafers, chocolate cherry trail mix and hot chocolate.
Ciao Down ($40):
Treat your friends to a little Roman holiday at home by sending ingredients for easy Italian feasts. The box includes pasta, Italian herb pasta sauce, basil pesto, extra virgin olive oil crostini, dry roasted almonds and truffled espresso clusters. Buon Appetito!
