10 “Tins” to Indulge In: Gift Boxes You’ll Love to Give

For me, the end of the year has always signaled the season of indulgence. First came Halloween candy followed by pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, then December came bearing the tastiest treat of all — a plaid box full of dried meat products, cheese-flavored spreads, and iced petits fours! I looked forward to those “snack assortments,” compliments of my grandfather, all year long. Those and the tri-flavored popcorn tins my mom got from her boss every holiday season. After all, Christmas was the only time of year I got to indulge in caramel corn and imitation cheese.

But all that was once upon a few decades ago. My tastes have since changed and expanded. Luckily, so has the variety of gift tins (or boxes or baskets.) Check out my list of deluxe gift sets.

For a Bad Day

At heart I suppose I’m a tin traditionalist because that World Market popcorn up there looks really good, but I wouldn’t mind indulging in a wider range of assorted goodies, either.
