I know, I know there are still a few months left until Christmas, we haven’t even gotten through the Back To School rush, but if your anything like me you are always on the lookout for the perfect gift for any occasion, yes including Christmas at all times of the year! I recently had a chance to discover a great new company called Naumes Fruit Gifts that offers some really cool gift baskets and gifts that would be perfect for any gift giving occasion.

**About Naumes (Taken From Website):**

**Company Information:**

One of the largest family owned and operated pear growers in the world

Headquartered in Medford, Oregon with 21 farms in Washington, California and Oregon

100 full time employees and up to 1500 seasonal

Also grow apples, cherries and specialty fruit such as persimmons, Asian pears and walnuts

**Naumes Family History:**

In business for nearly 100 years

In 1908, Pete Naumes purchased the family’s first apple farm in Hood River, Oregon

In 1946, Pete’s son Joe Naumes moved the family farm to Southern Oregon and expanded the family business to 21 farms in three states

Joe’s son Mike Naumes runs the family business with his wife Laura

Mike and Laura’s triplets, Joe, Cynthia and Sean, are actively involved in the business

**Our Thoughts:**

We were sent the Suncrest Appetizers Gourmet Gift Collection to review.

**This gift set included:**

**9oz Deluxe Mixed Nuts 9.9oz Artichoke Piquillo Bruschetta 10oz Lemon Pesto 2oz Pre-Sliced Beef Summer Sausage Cheddar Chive Currant Focaccia Cracker Mini Wood Cutting Board Small Cheese Knife.**

So you can see that it’s a pretty nice gift collection in itself, now when it arrived we were very excited to get it open and get our fingers on the loot inside!! I will tell you that the mixed nuts and the pre-sliced Beef Summer Sausage was the first to get devoured the night they arrived and I myself really enjoyed the Beef Summer Sausage they are wonderful on the little round Ritz Crackers and with a slice of cheese on top! These would make wonderful party appetizers and finger foods!

The mini cutting board and small cheese knife have really came in handy with this set! I use the cheese knife not only for cheese spread but also to add butter to our toast and waffles, the possibilities are endless with these two items. I have also really enjoyed the all-natural Artichoke Piquillo Brushetta and the Artichoke Lemon Pesto that came with the gift collection they have endless possible uses from use on toasts and different crackers and breads to just as a snack all by themselves they are yummy!! I’ve also really enjoyed using the Cheddar Chive Currant Focaccia Cracker in my salads to give them just the perfect kick and “new attitude” to help keep them from getting too blah, and boring!

Now I bet your wondering how well the gift was packaged and I will tell you…VERY SECURE.. I was very pleased at the packaging of this gift box it was packaged in a nice purple and white box (like you see above) and was packaged where they would not bump and bang together and they were padded very nicely! Here I’ll show you:

I also want to take a second and tell you about an awesome program that they also have going on right now the Donate Fruit™ Cause:

Through our Donate Fruit™ cause every gift you purchase, we will donate an equal amount of fresh fruit — pound for pound — to a food bank. Your Donate Fruit™ gift sends the message that you care about the recipient and that you invest yourself in the cause to fight hunger.

**Bottom Line:**

We are very impressed with the Suncrest Appetizers Gourmet Gift Collection we received and I feel it would make a wonderful gift for any occasion from weddings, housewarming, birthday to yes, I’m going to say it Christmas!!

One thing that I also love about Naumes Fruit Gifts is that for every gift you purchase they commit to match every purchase, pound for pound, with a donation of fresh fruit to food banks that feed families in need! So you really don’t just give one gift you also give to a family in need! How wonderful is that?

I really recommend Naumes Fruit Gifts to everyone that has any kinds of gifts to give this year and for the many years to come! I am confident that you will not only be getting a gift that the recipient is going to love but you also get a chance to help families in need!
