4 Christmas Basket Ideas For Your Loved Ones
2018 | Gifts Guide
Christmas is here! And being the most wonderful time of the year means we’ll be spending ample time contemplating what gifts to buy our loved ones. It’s always tricky to buy presents because: 1) we’re unsure if they’ll like it or 2) we don’t know if they already have the gift we have in mind.
Our solution for this is to give them the best gift of all — food. Love was a close second though. Here’s a gift guide for making customized gift baskets for your loved ones with their favourite things — all available at a Village Grocer near you!
For the little ones:
Every kid looks forward to Christmas because it means presents! And since they run on sugar (mostly), there’s no better gift to give them than something sweet. Pick up their favourite Christmas themed candies or fun gingerbread kit which they can make with the family during the holidays; it’ll be a fun activity for all to enjoy during the festive season.

For the sweet tooth:
There are two types of people in the world; those who are unphased by chocolate and those who can’t go a day without it. And if you know the latter, contribute to them living their best lives by giving them the best selection of cocoa goodness for Christmas. It’ll be the sweetest present to give them.
