Say You’re Sorry with Sympathy Food Baskets
When someone you know is sick, or that person is facing the loss of a loved one, it’s instinctual to send flower – especially when you care a great deal for that person. However, flowers can be a burden for the person receiving them.
Flowers require care (watering, plant food, etc), a place to put them and the time to move them from the delivery box to a vase. With everything that’s going on during a sad event, you don’t want to say I’m sorry with more work, you want to provide an easy solution that the recipient will truly appreciate. This is where a sympathy food basket can help.
Sympathy Food Baskets- as the name suggests – are baskets that are filled with food for someone that you care about. The kind of food can vary quite a bit and most florists and basket delivery services offer a wide variety of choices.
For example, you can send a food basket that only contains fresh made sweets, such as hand dipped chocolate covered strawberries and cherries, homemade fudge and more. Other baskets might contain a variety of cheese, sausage and smoked salmon. There are also options for fruit baskets that contain a variety of in season fruits for the recipient to enjoy. In every case, immediate refrigeration won’t be necessary.
Of course, in addition to the food in a basket, the recipient of the basket will also receive the basket itself. This is an extra bonus when it comes to Sympathy Food Baskets, as a nice basket can be used for storage or decoration for a very long time.
You may also have the choice of sending the food in a specialty box. Typically, the box will be a high quality box with classic designs and writing on it. This, however, will depend upon who you purchase the basket from.
If you want to say you’re sorry to someone for something that they’re going through, flowers are a nice gesture, but they can be a lot of work for that person. Instead of flowers, consider sending a food basket that allows them to enjoy the immediate benefits of not having to cook anything or put anything away while having an additional gift that can be used later.
