Think out of the old box and into the food box.
Surprise the most-loved person with a gift that counts more than overpriced menus or gifts that smack of money.
Feed them with the food of love.
Pack a basket or a box with tasty, delicious things that are easy to eat.
Make a meatloaf (or a really special terrine) or buy a selection of savoury and sweet treats at the deli or supermarket. Variety is the spice of life.
Pack different kinds of sliced hams and salami. Add some cheeses, small tomatoes, olives and chocolates. Don’t forget the drinks. Add fresh juices, cold wine, frothy beer or festive bubbles to make the soul smile.
If you can’t do a picnic in the garden or anywhere outdoors, take it inside. Spread a pretty cloth on the table or the floor. Adventure = excitement.
On this day, we can skip whatever’s boring and predictable.
And if deli-food or charcuterie is not your thing, just add home-cooked food that’s prepared with love. Simple, yet tasty. It’s about the language of love which says: This is from me to you, I love you.
