Perfect summer gift baskets

Gift baskets are great because you can personalize them to the recipient. Add to their uniqueness by also sharing a little of yourself, such as your discovery of healthy, versatile Carotino Red Palm & Canola Oil. Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

For the outdoorsy friend: Boaters, camping enthusiasts and even those who entertain frequently by the pool will love a small cooler filled with summer’s necessities. Include items such as hats, sunscreen and sunglasses. For your personal touch, include an airtight container of homemade granola bars or trail mix made with Carotino. Complete the gift basket by adding a recipe card for their goodies and a bottle of Carotino so that they may replenish their supply.

For the dog lover: Thrill the dog enthusiast in your life with the makings of a doggie party. Fill a paw-printed tote with a paper or plastic breed-specific table cloth and matching napkins (available at many party supply stores). Include dog bowls, which are great for holding dips, nuts, crackers and party mix. Bake your favorite homemade cookies using Carotino. (Include a bottle of Carotino and your recipe because even a dozen of your cookies is never enough!) Complete this gift basket with gourmet dog treats so the furry family members are included in the fun.

For the family: What to bring when you’re invited to a family’s home for the first time? Here’s a clever idea. Use a traditional basket, and create a base with a couple of cute dish towels. Next arrange all of the ingredients for a family favorite recipe, Carotino Macaroni Cheese with Tomato and Onion. Complete the basket with the glass baking dish they’ll need to prepare the dish.

And always remember: In addition to including your favorite recipe and a bottle of Carotino in the gift basket, give the recipient this website address so that they can keep up with all of the latest health information about Malaysian red palm oil, and try our other menu ideas.
