The word of the moment is ‘green.’ With our mother earth in great danger, there is a growing tendency in most of us to go green and use organic products. We have many different kinds of products and lots and lots of activists are vigorously championing the cause. They are regularly in the news for protesting in front of the White House or organizing marches or at some organic farms, planting saplings. Some even take it a step further- they are willing to strip off their clothes for our blessed mother Earth. For your contribution this Christmas, however, you need not go to such extent (bless the celebrities and their beautiful bodies). While choosing gift hampers this Christmas, you can choose a fresh organic fruit basket for delivery. These fruit baskets are environment friendly, not to mention that they are also great for the health.
The fruit basket is a quintessential gift basket icon, and one of the gift hampers you can be sure your recipient will enjoy. Organic fruits are some of the most commonly found produce in organic markets and are really easy to assemble. Just choose whatever is available for this season to reduce your cost expenditure and improve freshness. Farmer markets and organic markets are growing in numbers nowadays so you will not have difficulty in getting fresh organic produce. For all those out there who have their own organic garden, they can enjoy the liberties of selection like no other!
Your Christmas basket need not be restricted to just fruits. You can even mix in a few vegetables to add some variance to the typical fruit basket. Add squashes or a few cobs of corn, depending on the season, if you believe that your friends and relatives enjoy them.
One may also include a variety of nuts to the fruit basket. You can buy raw nuts or roasted ones and as long as they are certified organic, the kind does not really matter. Many people do not have a sweet tooth, so for them roasted nuts is a good option as they provide a healthy snack. Raw nuts on the other hand can be used for cooking, baking and other such purposes and is also beneficial nutritionally.
You can bundle together organic grains, as well. Not only is it a good idea for gift baskets, but it also provides the recipient with their dinner food. You can choose different kinds of organic grains, mixing and matching, or stick to a particular type like pasta. If you are giving a pasta grain basket, you can include several BPA free jars of organic sauces, as well. If you are giving a rice grain basket, mix and match several different types of rice grains like Basmati rice, whole-grain rice, as well as organic rice blends that mix together rice with dehydrated organic herbs or vegetables. If you are giving away the basket soon, throw in a few organic loaves of French bread. However, avoid giving baskets full of bread as it spoils fast.
With the above mentioned items, you can easily arrange your own organic gift hamper, ready to be delivered. For working professionals who do not find much time, several online stores offer safe delivery of organic gift hampers in UK.
