How to Curate the Perfect Holiday Gift With Gourmet Foods From Around the World

With the holiday season just around the corner, many of us are still searching for the perfect gifts to give to friends and loved ones. I am no exception.

You see, my family is notoriously difficult to shop for because everyone has such different preferences and styles. Thankfully, I’ve come to find that food gifts are always well-received.

So this year, I was looking for a food gift that will really wow my friends and family. And preferably, a gift that I can personalize to each person’s tastes without having to shop at 25 different retailers.

Enter: Yummy Bazaar’s Build Your Own Gift (B.Y.O.G.).

Not only do they offer an amazing selection of gourmet foods from all over the world, but their gift boxes can be perfectly tailored to fit any palate. It’s a one-stop shop!

Giving personalized gifts doesn’t have to be hard

With a wide selection of gourmet foods from around the world (I’m talking about thousands of international gourmet items at very competitive prices), Yummy Bazaar makes it easy to give personalized gifts. In just 1 hour, I put together 25 gift boxes, where every item inside each box is one I've specifically selected to suit the recipient's taste and preferences.

For example, for an Italian Pasta Night Box I put together for a friend, I included a box of Spinosi Pappardelle Italian Egg Pasta, a jar of Arrabiata sauce, and a bottle of Truffle Flavored Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Olio Calvi.

Whether your recipient loves Indian cuisine, Italian pasta, or Japanese sushi, there are tons of options to build a customized gift box. Oh, and did I mention that the B.Y.O.G. offering includes a gift box and gift wrap too? Say goodbye to spending hours wrapping gifts!

But how is the quality?

While this is my first year using Yummy Bazaar’s Build Your Own Gift (B.Y.O.G.), I can vouch for the quality of Yummy Bazaar’s gift sets because I’ve gotten a few of them in the past - both for myself and for others.

Each box I’ve ordered has been a hit in terms of item quality and value. It also helps that the boxes have always shipped quickly and have never arrived damaged.

Take the monthly World Gourmet Gift Box, for example. I’ve subscribed to this for a couple of months now (they’re available as a one-time box too) and I’ve discovered so many new favorite brands and tried so many new international foods that I never would have otherwise known about. I have gotten so much bang for my buck!

Give no-waste gift boxes to stretch your dollars

With typical gift baskets I’ve sent people in the past, the items included are pre-picked by the company. So more often than not, these gift boxes were pretty standard and may include items the recipient wouldn’t care for.

For example, my mom loves wine but doesn’t care for cheese (it’s the smell, she says). A lot of the nicer pre-set wine gift baskets I’ve found in the past include gourmet cheeses and nuts along with the wines, but she doesn’t end up eating any of the cheese. So it can honestly feel wasteful and expensive.

I really like Yummy Bazaar’s B.Y.O.G. because it allows me to hand-select every item that goes in my mom’s box. She’s going to be thrilled when she discovers that she can actually enjoy everything in her box - say hello to decadent chocolates, fancy wines, and a yummy orange almond cake I know she’ll love!

Happy wallet, happy me

What I love most about Yummy Bazaar’s gift sets is how they cater to such wide budgets. Specifically, the Build Your Own Gift offering is customizable for any budget, since you get to choose the price point yourself based on the items you select. This was a huge plus point for me because I have different gift budgets for different people in my life.

Overall, who knew giving personalized food gifts could be this easy and affordable? Yummy Bazaar, I will be back!
