The­mat­ic gifts

Delicious gifts: how to collect and decorate?

Some­times it is very dif­fi­cult to choose an inter­est­ing and use­ful gift, espe­cial­ly if a per­son already has every­thing and it is dif­fi­cult to sur­prise him with an orig­i­nal thing. Food in this case is a win-win option, since del­i­ca­cies will become part of the fes­tive table in any case. It remains to cor­rect­ly select a gro­cery set and design it in an orig­i­nal way.

What products can be used?

  • fish;
  • smoked meats;

If a man is a con­nois­seur of spicy cheeses, it’s a good idea to present him with a bou­quet of wine and cheese. Giv­en that one per­fect­ly com­ple­ments the oth­er, the gift will be very sophis­ti­cat­ed.

An unusu­al option would be sauce set. These kits are made to order. Any­one who decides to make an inter­est­ing present can order spe­cif­ic sauces and fes­tive dec­o­ra­tions of a cer­tain type. As a rule, the choice is made in favor of sauces for meat dish­es. But there are also those that are designed for fruits and veg­eta­bles.

Variants of edible souvenirs

Some prod­ucts may serve sou­venirs depend­ing on their place of ori­gin. It is no coin­ci­dence that when return­ing from Thai­land, many give coconut oil to their friends and rel­a­tives. On the one hand, it is a reminder of the impres­sions brought “from over­seas”, and on the oth­er hand, it is a very prac­ti­cal prod­uct that can also be used for fry­ing.

The same cheese or wine can be pre­sent­ed with a hint of France or Italy, and sets with lotus seeds can be pre­sent­ed with a hint of Viet­nam.

Such “reminders of events” can be made with your own hands. As a sign of the hol­i­day, it is enough to bake cook­ies and give them one look or anoth­er using a spe­cial mold.

The design of the cook­ie depends on the occa­sion. If you plan to present it as a New Year’s sou­venir, it can look like a Christ­mas tree or a snowflake. For Valen­tine’s Day, it is log­i­cal to arrange sets in the form of hearts. Gin­ger­bread men will serve as inter­est­ing sou­venirs for almost any hol­i­day.

Design features

The orig­i­nal­i­ty of an edi­ble gift is often dic­tat­ed pre­cise­ly by how beau­ti­ful­ly it is pre­sent­ed. A com­mon form for a gro­cery set is a bou­quet. You can order it from spe­cial­ists or do it your­self.

Even a begin­ner can eas­i­ly cre­ate a sim­ple com­po­si­tion. A meat bou­quet can be arranged in the form of a bunch of skers with strung pieces of such a prod­uct. As a wrap­per, bacon is suit­able for such beau­ty.

From bacon you can make a bou­quet that real­ly looks like a flor. From thin slices of lard, small rolls resem­bling rose­buds are cre­at­ed, fixed with tooth­picks, and then baked. Chop­sticks for Chi­nese food are used as stems. Leaves are depict­ed on them with any suit­able green­ery, and “buds” are pricked from above.

Any man (and not only) will be delight­ed with such a gift.

Fruits and berries can also be laid out in the form of a bou­quet in a box. On paper, act­ing as a con­di­tion­al wrap­per, a com­po­si­tion of prod­ucts is formed. You can, for exam­ple, place an incised pome­gran­ate with its bright seeds in the cen­ter, and make “petals” of Vic­to­ria and oth­er berries around. Dec­o­rate the pack­age with a rib­bon and give as a gift.

A very inter­est­ing bou­quet is obtained from dried fish. To do this, the set is packed in a reg­u­lar news­pa­per or spe­cial paper with a news­pa­per print and tied with a rib­bon in the area of ​​u200bu200bthe fish tails gath­ered togeth­er. There is no doubt that the gift will be met with the approval of a lover of this kind of snack.

It is con­ve­nient to pack sausages in a bou­quet. Such a com­po­si­tion can be sup­ple­ment­ed with bunch­es of let­tuce with small toma­toes embed­ded in them. Bak­ery prod­ucts that have an elon­gat­ed shape will also be in place.

Beau­ti­ful bou­quet of sets. This can also be done with­out resort­ing to the help of a spe­cial­ist. Buds are twist­ed from paper, like tulips, sets are insert­ed inside, stems are made from impro­vised mate­ri­als and all this is wrapped in a gift wrap. For a woman cel­e­brat­ing March 8 or her birth­day, lit­tle will be more attrac­tive than such a bou­quet.

Orig­i­nal food com­po­si­tions can be made in the bas­ket. Such a cute con­tain­er is suit­able even for a meat set, even for a fruit one. How beau­ti­ful its con­tent looks depends on the abil­i­ty of the design­er. To a deli­cious gift, it remains to attach a post­card with a con­grat­u­la­tion.

After the con­tents have been eat­en, the bas­ket can con­tin­ue to be used.

If jars with edi­ble con­tents act as a present, they are placed in beau­ti­ful box­es, sim­i­lar to those used for creams. In this form, gifts look very wor­thy.

Even an ordi­nary box with pack­ing paper laid in it serves as an excel­lent frame for a meat or cheese set.

The pack­ag­ing itself, by the way, can also be edi­ble.. From cheese, which has the shape of a rope, you can knit a bowl or bas­ket in which it remains to place home-baked pies, for exam­ple, with liv­er or cab­bage. Both the con­tents and the con­tain­er will be eat­en, but the gift itself will not be for­got­ten.

If only a bar of choco­late acts as an edi­ble gift, and it will be pos­si­ble to ade­quate­ly “present” it to the per­son pre­sent­ed. To do this, a hard cov­er is made of card­board, on the inside of which a pock­et is pro­vid­ed. A set tile is insert­ed into it. On the oth­er half of the cov­er there is a pock­et for a post­card.

The effec­tive­ness of the gift depends not only on the qual­i­ty of the choco­late, but also on the orig­i­nal­i­ty of the out­er design of the cov­er. You can use the decoupage tech­nique for this, dec­o­rate the front side with volu­mi­nous flors from or foami­ran, make an appliqué, and so on.

It is log­i­cal to arrange a set gift of cakes or cook­ies for a girl in a deep heart-shaped box. You can put sets in one half of it, and flors in the oth­er. This com­bi­na­tion will please the hero of the occa­sion.

To form any prod­uct set, it is impor­tant to choose high-qual­i­ty, expen­sive prod­ucts and pay seri­ous atten­tion to the appear­ance of the pre­sen­ta­tion.

If a tasty gift is made with soul, it will cer­tain­ly be appre­ci­at­ed.
