Gift Ideas 2023, grazing board by FarmJarsCo

We are retiring cakes as a gift idea for 2024. We have had too many chocolate malt cakes and Bombay bakery coffee cakes, bento cakes and also tres leches. It’s time to shake things up a bit. No, not you because you are probably reading this snuggled in your couch. We would really like to bring in new, fresh gift ideas for 2024 and here are a few humble suggestion.

Gift Ideas For 2024. Here goes!


Fudge Boxes By
Karachi Fudge Company

Fudge Squares from Karachi Fudge Company, Gift Ideas for 2023

Fudge is an interesting sweet that is chewy, almost like toffee but also melts in your mouth after the initial bite. It is made with butter, sugar and condensed milk mainly and stands out as a unique gift idea because they can be nicely packaged, look fun and also come in so many flavours. 

You can order these in coconut, rose & pistachio, caramel & vanilla, espresso, chocolate, peanut butter and more.

They also have a substantial shelf life and don’t necessarily have to be refrigerated. Besides, we could all do with more candy in life. 

Brand: Karachi Fudge Company

Price: Rs. 1,150 to Rs. 1,850 for fudge boxes (depending on flavour), Rs. 500 for fudge pouches.

Chilli Crisp Labneh By

Chilli Crisp Labneh from FarmJarsCo.

A labneh is a yogurt cheese that has really upped our breakfast game. It is tangy, creamy and works amazingly well as a spread and as a dip. It is also lighter as compared to other kinds of cheese and is a good source of probiotics. Pair it with chilli crisp and you get the flavour combination of your dreams. Gift this one to your friends with a side of bread sticks or pita chips and they will thank you every time they snack or have breakfast. 🐵

Other flavours to also check out: Garlic & Herb

Brand: Farm Jars Co

Price: Rs. 850 per jar

Macarons by Maccarron Gift Ideas for 2023

Macaron is a meringue-based confection that is crunchy on the outside but is soft inside. Like fudge, it is a smol, fun giftable and a nice break from chocolate. And of course, it comes in various flavours. A lot of places make macarons now but we really like the approach Maccarron takes with them. You can have colours, flavours and packaging customised and they have numerous options for each.

Some of their interesting flavours are: Baklava, Shahi Kulfa, Meetha PanFerrero Rocher, Ice Mint, Mango, Cardamom and Saffron Rose.
