It’s that time of year. You’re frantically brainstorming original ideas for holiday gifts while trying to keep them meaningful and within budget. Whether your list includes family members with varying tastes, valued clients, or dear friends, share health this holiday season. Publix has simple solutions that will not only lower your stress level, but also inspire those you care about to move closer to their wellness goals.
Better Giving Is in the Bag
When it comes to creating unique gifts, baskets can be customized for just about anyone. Make it even easier—and more practical—by putting together a Publix holiday reusable shopping bag filled with personalized specialties that you can pick up at most of our stores.
Here are a few gift ideas for sharing health for the holidays.
Fruit, Cheese, and Nuts: Start in the Publix Produce department with an assortment of festive fruits such as apples, pears, and seasonal delights like fresh Florida citrus. Then assemble a variety of specialty cheeses, honey, and crackers from the Publix Deli. Mixed nuts and a nutcracker make a nice finishing touch.
Mediterranean Medley: The Mediterranean style of eating has many health benefits. Fill a bag with organic extra-virgin olive oil, feta cheese, organic farro, lentils, pomegranates, and organic raw almonds.
Grill It Up: Grilling is a flavorful way to prepare foods with limited salt and saturated fats. For your favorite grilling enthusiast, gather grilling tools such as a digital meat thermometer, basting brush, cedar planks, tongs, chrome skewers, and a fork. Add a dash of flavor with spices, rubs, marinades, or sauces. Here are some additional health and wellness resources when gifting for the grill master.
Pizza Maker: A great gift for a family with children who enjoy cooking at home, create a make-your-own-pizza bag with a pizza wheel, pan, knife, and cheese grater. Include a Publix gift card to purchase the pizza ingredients—and maybe even offer some ideas for a wholesome spin on pizza with fresh vegetables, reduced-fat cheese, and whole wheat crust.
Gluten-Free Baking: Ideal for those on your list who have removed gluten from their diets, create a baking basket with pans, wire racks, mixing bowls, and a spatula. Add recipes for making gluten-free breads or desserts. Throw in some gluten-free cake and bread mixes for good measure.
For those you know who are shopping organic, consider including some of the many GreenWise organic products, such as cereals, crackers, nuts, snack mixes, and olive oil.
