Have you ever received a box of fresh citrus fruit in the winter. I have an Uncle who always sent us a large box of grapefruit every December. We lived in Minnesota and he lived in New Mexico so we didn’t get to see him very often. Receiving that box of grapefruit is one of my favorite childhood memories. In Minnesota citrus fruit is a welcome treat in the middle of winter. I remember being so small I could fit inside the box of grapefruit. I wonder if they still sell such large boxes?
This is a great gift item to send a loved one, especially an older person who can’t get around much. I think I will do this for a few people on my Christmas list because they will appreciate the fresh fruit and older people tend not to leave home as much when it is cold out and the roads are bad. There are companies who will deliver the fruit to people far away so that works out wonderfully. Another option is to go to the grocery store and make your own baskets up to bring to loved ones who live closer to you. Doing that also allows you to be able to add some special favorites to personalize the basket.
