Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Christmas may be over – as well as the Holiday season – but as you may be aware, Valentine’s Day is once again just around the corner and now is the perfect time to start thinking about what you are going to do for your loved ones and your special someone.

Of course, there is the classic dozen roses’ bouquet and box of chocolates but wouldn’t it be great if the present was a tiny bit more original this year? It is always good to show your partner that your love isn’t generic and think a little outside of the box.

Of course, chocolate treats are always appreciated but why not get something that is a bit more sophisticated than regular chocolates? Yes, I am talking about French macarons! It will still be something your lover can eat and enjoy but is also a great to show that she/he isn’t generic.

Macarons are delicious French mini cookies sandwiches that are filled with ganache or buttercream. Very delicate, they are becoming more and more popular every day in America and all over the world.

Now especially on Valentine’s Day, presentation is everything and the box you will present your macarons in is just as important as the taste of the treats!

Luckily, your macaron packaging options are very diverse and you are sure to find the perfect beautiful and Eco-friendly gift box in no time!

Take Out Options: Take Advantage Of The Cold Weather

As you have noticed, the cold weather is back again and bad weather means one thing: nobody wants to go out and leave their place when they don’t have to, especially to eat! People are more likely to order-in or takeout on their way back from work instead of eating out.

What does it mean for food businesses and catering businesses? It is the perfect time to offer takeout solutions to your customers. Yes, what could make them happier than being able to take home their favorite food form their favorite place and being able to enjoy it at home in company of their loved ones in a warm kitchen?

Offering takeout options means that you will have to choose packaging options and when it comes to disposable packaging, there is two things you absolutely have to think about.

First of all, Americans generate tons of food packaging waste every day. This is why it is extremely important to have an Eco-friendly approach when it comes to disposables. Go for Eco-friendly biodegradable or compostable packaging, or choose at least recyclable ones. Make sure your customers are aware of how to dispose them once they are done with their food.

Second of all, good choice of packaging can strengthen a brand and make the difference between you and your competitors. A food business success is not only about food, it is also about how food is presented and displayed. Packaging of your choice have to be not only functional but also design and attractive. Keep that in mind!

While tea contains substances that have been associated with preventing heart diseases and cancer, we are still not sure whether or not the high caffeine content is a risk factor and the healthy benefits of drinking tea are a great boost to the American tea industry.
