The holidays are going to be tight for many people this year, and finding gifts that are practical and affordable is important for people who are still feeling the effects of the rough economy.
With millions of people still out of work practical gifts, like gourmet gift baskets filled with fresh citrus fruits, nuts, preserves and other treats are the gifts that will really make an impact. Even people who haven't lost their jobs or their homes are looking for ways to spend less and are focusing on giving gifts that are practical instead of gifts that won't get used or that will just get re-gifted.
If you have friends or family members who have been cutting back on groceries in order to save money giving them the gift of fresh, delicious, healthy citrus fruit is a great way to treat them and give them something they can really use at the same time. A fruit of the month club membership would ensure that they have fresh fruit all year long, which is especially important for families with small children.
You don't have to spend a lot to get a citrus fruit gift. A simple box of navel oranges and grapefruits, or the gift of some healthy fruit juice, doesn't cost a lot but would be welcomed by a family that can no longer afford a lot of fresh fruit. If you have more money to spend then consider sending a gift tower that contains some healthy fruit but also some protein packed nuts, sweets, and other treats. Or, send the gift of a delicious fresh cake.
If you are struggling to make ends meet yourself but still want to give gifts to your friends and family you can buy fresh Florida citrus fruit in bulk boxes and then portion the boxes out into your gift arrangements, keeping some for your own family. Economical bulk packages of citrus fruit are a great way to get the healthy fruit your family needs and give you something delicious to give to your friends and family this holiday season even if you don't have a lot of money to spend. Bulk boxes of two or three different kinds of citrus fruits give you everything you need to create your own gift packages for friends and family as well giving your family some sweet, healthy treats. Store your fresh fruit carefully to make it last as long as possible.
