I have never made gifts for co-workers before. But once I started to brainstorm gift ideas I realized that it doesn’t have to be expensive and it doesn’t have to be time consuming either! I actually have 2 other gift ideas that I will share with you in the next couple of days too.
Panetón (or Fruit Cake as you might know it as) is a mandatory part of our Christmas eve celebration. It’s not really Christmas unless we are enjoying our Panetón with some hot chocolate made from scratch. I don’t remember a Christmas without it. I have tried other brands before but I always go back to getting the brands that come from Peru, where I am from. It’s so moist inside, and the smell is fantastic! The delicious fruit turns it from a sweet bread to an elegant dessert. I went to a little Peruvian market place called “La Pequeñita” which is located in Orem, UT in case you were wondering.
All I had to do if cut a slice, place it on a baggy and tie a ribbon around it with a mini Martinelli next to it! Any craft items I used I purchased from Hobby Lobby (one of the best craft stores there is!). I hope you like it and maybe inspires you to create this or a similar gift for a co-worker that you think is cool! Although you might have to give one to everybody so they don’t get jealous 😉
