Special Tips For Giving Holiday Season Food Gifts

        By Byron Winick from BonPastry.com

The holiday season is upon us, and your family is all over the country!  The stress of choosing the right presents for everyone can be overwhelming, but sometimes the simplest presents go a long way.  To keep the holiday cheer going, send some holiday sweets to your loved ones.  This shows them you care, and provides them delicious snacks for the holidays!

Here are five tips to sending great food gift items to family and friends in the spirit of the season.

 
1) Order your gifts 7 days in advance to ensure timely delivery during the holiday season.
The holiday season is a crazy time for packages.  Ensure your items arrive on time by tracking your package and leaving plenty of time for delivery to reduce risk of a holiday crisis.  

2) Send items that will last at least 72 hours without proper refrigeration.
Too often people choose items that they think their friends or family will like, without thinking about whether or not they will go bad before they are delivered.  Be sure to choose food with a long shelf life. .

  3) Use a reputable online bakery such as www.bonpastry.com.
Ordering gifts online is a simple solution to the stress of holiday shopping.  Choose items, personalize greetings, and ship to loved ones, all with the click of a mouse!

4) Ask the merchant if they will send a holiday gift card for an additional cost.
Adding a card to a holiday gift adds a personal touch that family and friends will enjoy.  

5) And last always make sure to call your recipient and with them a Happy Holidays!
Sending a gift is important, but so is talking to your friends and family!  Give them a personalized call to show them how much you care.  It is the holiday season after all!  

Use these tips, and your family and friends will be delighted by your wonderful gifts!  After all, it is the thought that counts.
