Eat Boutique Mother’s Day Box Giveaway

I have a page in my red Moleskine planner (I can’t quite seem to give up the paper habit) where I jot down possible gift ideas for the people in my life as they occur to me. I’ve trained myself to think about birthday and holiday gifts well in advance because giving good gift does not come naturally to me. While I love a thoughtful, well-wrapped gift as the next girl, I’ve never been able to organize myself well when it comes to charming cards and lovely packaging. So I work extra hard to select good presents, knowing that I won’t be able to hold a candle to my craftier kin.

When I know the gift I’m giving needs to be particularly impressive (and the budget allows) I sometimes turn to the professionals. One such pro that I discovered recently (and mentioned in this post last month) is Eat Boutique. Designed and curated by Maggie Battista, Eat Boutique boxes include small batch, artisanally crafted candies, cookies, preserves and more. The boxes change seasonally and make gorgeous gifts for the food lovers in your life.

I’m extra excited to tell you guys about this season’s box because Maggie has offered up one for a giveaway. That’s right, one Food in Jars reader will be the winner of a box jam-packed with sea salt rosemary shortbread, handmade chocolate bonbons and rochers, blood orange jam, local honey cake, chocolate-covered honeycomb candy and honey orange ricotta caramels. Sounds pretty tasty, doesn’t it!

This giveaway will be open until Wednesday, March 30 at 11:59 pm. To enter, leave a comment describing your favorite edible gift. One entry per person please. The winner will be able to choose to either receive the box or have it sent to a friend (in the U.S. or Canada only). Good luck!

(If you can’t bear to take your chances with the giveaway, you can also purchase one of these fab boxes straight from Maggie by clicking here. Each box costs $65 and includes a hand written note.)

    Salad dressings! Special salad dressings. I have a special recipe that we made up one year that everyone loves. It can be presented in pretty jars or recycled or new. And, for me, it’s always salad season.

    In my transition to an almost entirely local and organic food lifestyle, I have discovered the beauty of giving seasonal fruits and vegetables as gifts. Okay, sometimes I put them into a cake or a bread. Sometimes I give them in the form of preserves. But one of my favorite ways to present, say, a bushel of beautiful apples from a nearby orchard, is simply as they are. Giving food to loved ones has raised the value of the gift-giving experience for me.
