The corporate gifts are flowing in to offices around the country this week and next and we can’t help but wonder: why do most of them stink so badly? Sad arrays of fruit, off-brand chocolates, and stale crackers are the downfall of many a gift box, the components of which will be relegated to the back of your pantry or the office break room.
Hand sourced and curated in house by a dedicated staffer, Bob Sances, each gift crate combines artisanal, hand-made products (many designed exclusively for Winston Flowers) that are thoughtfully packaged with fresh greenery in beautiful wooden crates.
From the simple and fresh fruit ($100-$125) or fruit and cheese ($110) array to a lavish “our favorite things” box packed with cheese, flatbreads, fruit, chocolates and cookies, these showstopper gifts are gorgeous deliveries as hostess presents or a thoughtful last-minute present for any clients and friends on your list.
We also love that many of these are perfect for year-round gifts and entertaining as well — a “Winston’s Breakfast” box ($250) offers pancake mix and pure maple syrup, blueberry loaf cake, donut muffins, addictively wonderful madelines, and granola, as well as loose tea, honey and jam. For new moms, there’s also a beautiful “baby” basket, filled with flowers, lotion, soft toys and a blanket ($95 – $250). Those local to the Boston area can also enjoy baskets with wine and champagne.
Seriously, we just can’t get enough of these beautiful crates.
Pursuitist received a sample gift crate, but then promptly ordered more for holiday gifts. Our opinions are our own.
