The biggest gift-giving holidays of the year are upon us and everyone struggles to find gifts. Some people are so easy but others baffle us until, at the last minute, we run out and get . . . anything . . . just to have something to hand over.
Generic gift cards seemed to be a great invention at first - the recipient can buy just about anything! No need to worry about sizes or taste or availability because they can choose whatever they want.
But generic gift cards come with a creeping sense that they lack any effort by the giver and are too impersonal to give all but the loosest of acquaintances. They say nothing about you, the giver, and nothing about them, the receiver. Then why give anything?
More on trend these days is a gift card with meaning, one that allows you to share your passion. And for those of us that enjoy health eating, may we be so bold as to suggest a Garden of Esther gift card?
You can now buy them right here on the website and print them out at home. The lucky recipient can then come to the Oceanside Vero Beach Farmers Market and choose from our wide array of fresh pasta flavors and shapes. If you've already tried our pasta, you know it's easy, delicious, and good for you, too.
Better still, a GoE gift certificate brings the bearer to a farmers market, where they will encounter an entire fleet of local businesses. So you're not just giving a night or two's worth of pasta dinner, you're giving a beautiful weekend adventure, strolling through the wares of local artisans, sipping coffee (or maybe a beer), and stopping to smell the metaphorical roses.
Sounds like a pretty sweet deal!
You don't even have to get out of your chair - you can buy it right here and now: https://www.gardenofestherpasta.com/shop. Our gift certificates come in denominations of $10, $30, and $50.
We look forward to meeting new friends you send our way!
