There are many ways to show gratitude, giving the perfect gift is one of them. An enormous factory of ideas that starts work towards the end of November. The aim: find the perfect gift for this Christmas. Fun suggestions on loads of websites, recommendations from the biggest giants in e-commerce, and hordes of people pouring into the street to make the most of that electricity in the form of coloured lights hoping to find some inspiration when shopping.
The perfect gift is of course subjective and is different depending on who it is for, but we mustn’t forget that there are many people scratching their heads at this time of year trying to get the perfect gift. For this reason, right from the start, it is necessary to appreciate the effort and good intention… But why is it that when we think about the best possible perfect gifts from past Christmases they come to visit like Dickens’ ghosts? Forgotten gifts that accumulate in the darkest corner of the room that will never see the light of day.
Give the gift of experience
Is it so difficult to get it right when we give gifts? It properly is, because to do this, we have to know the person really well and that in itself is difficult. Your gifts define who you are: Observant, fun, prudent, generous, original… A word of advice: be practical. Finding the perfect gift carries with it a great deal of stress, clothes sizes, the latest in technology, or a decorative style for a house can complicate the choice of a great deal. Why is it easier to find the perfect gift in a gourmet product than any thing else? The secret is that it brings people together, it can be enjoyed in company. By choosing a gourmet product you are giving the gift of the experience of sharing it , however, and with whoever the person wants. When you give a gastronomic gift that is identified with quality and prestige it is difficult to get it wrong, provided you follow two essential requirements to avoid putting your foot in it: cultural and religious aspects and eating habits.
Advantages of the best ham
Ham, like turrón, can never be missing from the Christmas table. It is one of the gastronomic jewels of Mediterranean cuisine, and an essential item for special occasions which, also saves the cook time; cut and plate up, or by opting for pre-sliced; open and serve. Joselito Gran Reserva Ham is one of a kind. Chefs of recognised international prestige and gastronomic critics of the highest level are among its best prescribers. Obtaining such a unique piece requires time. Joselito Ham is 100% natural, contains no preservatives, the curing process is carried out in natural dryers, so at least 36 months are required to obtain each piece.
With the aim of enjoying the experience of a Gran Reserva during the holidays, the Christmas edition of a Joselito Ham comes with everything you need to enjoy it: ham cutting and conservation manual, apron embroidered with master cutter and a recipe book by a three star Michelin chef from JoselitoLab for those brave enough to try a different dinner and who want to impress their guests with haute cuisine dishes. More recipes can be found at JoselitoLab.com.
New for Christmas
Joselito Ham, used to being given as a gift, comes in different shapes and forms; in leather cases, such as the Costurero and the Joyero Joselito which contain packets of sliced ham. The Andrés Sardá selection also contains ham with other cold cuts. The most recent launch is the Swarovski Selection, designed this year in partnership with the famous Austrian crystal firm, which contains four 70g packs of Joselito Ham. Among the most successful gifts are: the Deconstructed Ham Ham Session -a whole sliced Joselito Ham-, the Selection Box -containing the most select Joselito cured meats-, and new for this year, the Cold Cuts Selection.
No event is worthwhile without the gastronomic excellence of ham. It is a great source of nutrients and has the advantage that it always goes down well. The good thing about having it on the table is that it can be eaten by the youngest to the oldest and nothing goes to waste, even the bone can be used to make a delicious broth. Ham is probably one of the most practical perfect gifts for Christmas, one of the reasons behind the success of the celebrations, because even though controversial topics might come up around the Christmas table, with Joselito at the table, there won’t be any arguments about the food.
