Consider a theme when creating food gift baskets Gift baskets of food get an especially warm welcome during the holidays. To create healthful holiday gifts of food, start with nutritious recipes. Sugary sweet confections and high-sodium, high-fat snacks abound this time of year. However, they don't help much if you are trying to select a healthful food gift for calorie-conscious friends. Select recipes that are high in complex carbohydrates and low in fat. As you pack your holiday food basket and/or gift bag, use the recipe to help create a theme for your gift.
