GIFT BASKETS GET AN UPGRADE
gift baskets are typically stu ed with an assortment of hickory-smoked sausages and imported cheeses, hot mustards and chutneys, gourmet crackers, and bottles of wine. It’s easy to make a call or a few clicks online and have some baskets delivered. And it’s always a pleasure to receive them, although perhaps not always the best for our waistlines or health.
is year, consider giving more health-minded (and more thoughtful) gift baskets. In “DIY Recipe Kits” on p. 90, you’ll nd ideas for gift baskets that are super easy to throw together, including shopping lists and clip-able recipes. Each basket includes the makings for a holiday-inspired treat made with superfood ingredients. We’ve done all the prep work for you. All you have to do is ll your baskets with the goodies listed and tuck in the corresponding recipe. (Or, if you’re feeling more ambitious, you can actually make one or two of these recipes to hand out as gifts!) e Cacao Nib Almond Cookies on our cover is one of them—so festive and seriously yummy. (Let’s just say they didn’t last long in our o ces.)
Even easier, check out our annual gift guide, “Good-for-You Gifts” on p. 68, where you’re sure to nd something for everyone on your list. ese gifts say, “I care about you and I’m looking out for your health and well-being.” Well, not in so many words, but you get the idea.
