You can also innovate with Christmas hampers
The Christmas holidays are getting closer and one of the most deeply-rooted traditions is that of giving Christmas hampers and gifts to family, friends, and employees. At 11Onze we invite you to innovate, and we have put together some proposals that are a little different from the norm.
Going for sustainable and local production is no longer a novelty, and both businesess and consumers have collaborated to create a market of zero-kilometre products within everyone’s reach. The same thing has happened with the Christmas gift packs: today there is a wide range of businesses offering products that are rooted in the land and that celebrate the gastronomic culture of our territory.
El Detallista and Harcogourmet are two examples of how to combine local products with all tastes. Moreover, their proposals are adapted to all budgets. Likewise, these two companies, and so many others, satisfy the demand for an original Christmas gift pack, an increasingly popular option. For example, they prepare batches of vegetarian or vegan products, which combine proximity with sustainability, and which lighten up the big feasts of the festive season, which are very appetising but not always healthy.
The sweetest Christmas
Who doesn’t like chocolate? The combinations are endless. Christmas is always accompanied by a series of typical sweets that bring back childhood memories and are the delight of everyone, children and adults alike. That is why we propose an indulgence without excuses or shame: a basket full of ‘catànies’ of all colours, nougats, and wafers with or without chocolate, ‘garapinyades’ almonds, stuffed or candied. And we can’t leave out the truffles, cat’s tongues or chocolate shavings, and chocolates.
A good selection of chocolates and bonbons to satisfy any palate can be found on the Amatller website, where you can also find the shops closest to you. At Cudié there are also combinations of ‘catànies’ that you would never have imagined existed.
Do it yourself
Despite the fact that there are an infinite number of physical and online shops that offer different Christmas gifts, we often find that it is not easy to find combinations of products that adapt to our needs or to the tastes of the people for whom the gift is intended.
Yes, it is true that there are businesses that are specialised in making Christmas packages and that even offer total freedom when it comes to choosing which of their items you want to put in your basket or box, but the range of products is necessarily quite limited. Fortunately, this is easily solved! You always have the possibility of putting together your own basket. Some supermarkets, such as Bonpreu, even sell empty Christmas hamper boxes for you to fill with the products of your choice. This way, we can create a made-to-measure pack, and combine different products, not only from one supermarket but from different shops and without limitations. What are you waiting for to innovate?
