Happy Holidays from FarFromBoring.com!

Munchies are always appreciated at holiday time, and food gifts can easily be customized with a company name or logo.

The goodies include chocolate covered almonds, caramel and pecan turtles and honey roasted peanuts, yummy. A brownie basket is also a nice touch for a larger office. Three dozen tasty cookies and brownies are sent in a leather handled gift basket with personalized ribbon. Cookies and brownies are a mix of chocolate, macadamia, raspberry, and oatmeal.

The Winter Wonderland is another great holiday food gift. A frosty snowman hides a cornucopia of treats inside. A dozen fresh cookies in four flavors, half a dozen brownies, and a quarter pound of California pistachios. To finish of the goodies, the Winter Wonderland snowman holds jumbo cashews and Ghirardelli chocolate squares

Looking for the Perfect Gift?

When my dad’s birthday rolled around at the end of the summer, I was in a rut as to what to get him, as usual.
He’s a simple kind of man who could sit on the porch all morning and watch the squirrels eat out of the bird feeder. So, when I found about the Ecosphere, I realized at once that it would be the perfect gift.
The Ecosphere is filled with several miniature shrimp that feed off a piece of coral and actually survive for up to 5 years! This completely self-contained, self-sustained ecosystem is truly amazing because it requires zero maintenance. All you have to do is put it in the sunlight. My dad couldn’t believe he never had to worry about the water getting foggy or algae building up on the sides.
At first, he was quite concerned as to how the other shrimp would fair if one of them died, but I assured him he need not worry about that either. The dead shrimp actually become a part of the nutrients that help sustain the ecosphere.
He claims that the longer he’s had it, the more interesting it gets, and he’s actually named a few of them…the largest shrimp is fondly referred to as “Jumbo”. My dad now spends his morning cup of coffee watching the little shrimp swimming around in the sphere and continues to be wowed by the tiny enclosed world sitting on his kitchen table.
Give this gift of science and serenity to that special client or valued employee. Reach out to a FarFromBoring.com representative to learn more about this truly amazing and unique way to wow any recipient!
