Stay at home as much as you can. Governments all over the world are giving this advice to their residents. Working from home became the new normal for many people, and in no time online shopping has had a considerable boost. And with this development, so has the box business. Grocery boxes, meal boxes, and also boxes with snacks, drinks, breads, cakes, cookies, and chocolates. Get inspired by these 8 bakery concepts that benefit from boxes.
Fresh Baked Cookie Crate
A box full of ingredients to bake the ultimate cookie. With gourmet pre-measured ingredients and fool-proof instructions. This is a great way to explore unique and delicious ingredients. And each box includes a fun, cookie-themed surprise gift. You never know if it will be a shirt, a candle, or a kitchen supply, but it’ll be fun for sure!
Pizza in the post
Pizza Pilgrims deliver frying-pan pizza kits for 2 to 4 people with all the ingredients you need to make their delicious pizzas. Each frying-pan pizza kit contains lovingly selected ingredients to make 2 authentic Neapolitan pizzas. And the packaging is as sustainable as possible, so most components can be reused, recycled or composted.
Sparkling pairing collection
A collaboration between Neuhaus's maîtres chocolatiers and Gault&Millau’s sommelier resulted in a selection of 4 beautiful pralines that pair perfectly with a glass of Champagne. Each praline variety has its own character and flavour profile that is extremely suited to be enjoyed with (extra-) brut, demi-sec, rosé, and vintage Champagne. The perfect gift box for both Champagne and chocolate lovers.
