Christmas is getting closer every day and for many of the people I ask, they have most but not all of their holiday gift shopping complete. In many cases they simply don’t know what to get for one or two people on their list. If you face the same dilemma I’d like to make a suggestion: Consider the gift of food and beverage. It’s one gift that everyone can use and appreciate.
There are several ways that we can fill your food and beverage gift needs. The simplest and quickest way is to purchase a Prisco’s gift card for any amount that suits you. Think of this as good solution for the postman, a school teacher, your baby sitter, or the scout master -- people that you want to recognize with a holiday gift, but just don’t know enough about their personal tastes to be comfortable picking out something specific.
For the person who loves to cook we’d like to suggest picking up a copy the newly released Prisco’s Family and Friends Cookbook, containing over 300 recipes contributed by members of the Prisco family and dozens of our customers, neighbors and friends. We’ve been selling the books for about three weeks and about half of the books are gone, so if you would like one or two for Christmas gifts shop the display in the front of our store.
For the past few Christmas holidays I’ve been tasked with being Chief Christmas Elf, maker of food gift baskets extraordinaire. Each year as I gain more experience, I try to find ways to improve upon what we offered the previous year. As in the past we will offer several premade baskets at a wide range of price points, available for you to simply pick up and purchase between now and Christmas Eve. I’m also very happy to create a custom made basket and fill it with any item that we sell in the store.
To make things even easier, this year we are offering a Create-a-Gift-Basket program offering three set price points for baskets where you purchase the baskets contents and my team of gift basket elf’s and I will build out your basket and make it just right for you and the person you are gifting it to. For example, do you know someone who enjoys craft and imported beers? Our store now offers over 800 beer varieties so I guarantee that we can create a beer gift basket that will be loved by any beer aficionado. Maybe you know someone with a passion for cooking or baking: consider a basket of our new line of all organic Spicely spices along with a mixture of imported specialty foods. Please keep in mind that if you want us to build you a custom made gift basket, depending on the amount of traffic when you visit, we may need to ask you to select your basket contents and leave them with us to create your basket for later pick-up.
If you have someone on your gift list that seems to be hard to shop for please think about the gift of food and beverage. Stop in the store and visit our gift basket center at the front. We are here to help make this Christmas a breeze when it comes to gifts of food and drink.
