Summer Gifts

Ask me if I’ve ever expressed how much I love giving gifts and I’ll say, “yes, about a million times. Here’s one million and one.”

If you have a garden or have a friend who has a garden (if you have neither of these, you aren’t living life to its fullest) this is the most perfect summer gift: for hostess gifts, for ‘new job’ gifts, for ‘hey, it’s a Wednesday!’ gifts…really, the possibilities for this are endless.

I got these cute boxes from Shop Sweet Lulu , originally for my birthday goodie bags, but apparently I overestimated how many friends I have because I ended up with about 10 extra. Honestly, I’m glad I don’t have as many friends as I thought I did when ordering because these have come in quite handy.

Potatoes are great for this kind of box, but any veggie will work – zucchini, squash, tomatoes, etc.

Throw enough in the box for dinner.

Close the box and around the handle, tie (with cute string or twine), some fresh herbs. For potatoes, rosemary is a pretty solid choice. For tomatoes, maybe basil? If you have avocados, (1) I hate you and (2) cilantro would be pretty amaze.

You can find flavored olive oil at specialty cooking stores. It’s olive oil infused with just a hint of something: peppered bacon, lemon, there are tons. Choose a flavor that best fits your veggies/dish.

Oops…open the box back up and throw that sucker in there.

And, voila. You are the most thoughtful gardener of the day.
