Spiralized Veggie Gift Ideas

Maybe you own a spiralizer, maybe you don’t. If you do, you’ve probably been bragging to your friends and family, saying, “No, but Aunt Glinda, really – the noodles taste JUST like pasta!” You’re also saying things like, “You HAVE to get a spiralizer, seriously!” 

The first time someone tastes spiralized veggies, they’re hooked. Well, why not be a positive and healthy influence on your friends and bring a bag of spiralized veggies to your next holiday party as a gift

Guaranteed, you’ll get lots of “oohs” and “ahhs.” Besides, wine and cookies are too predictable.

Of course, this gift wouldn’t be complete without the Inspiralized cookbook. Make sure you place your order, because starting January 1, 2014 – they’ll be gone! Click here to purchase the hard copy or gift the ebook by clicking here.

Let’s get started. First off, you can’t gift spiralized cucumbers (sorry!) – they’re too watery. The best spiralized veggies to give as gifts include beets, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, carrots, and zucchinis. If you give zucchini noodles as a gift, make sure to tell the host that they’ll need to refrigerate the bag! 

For today, I gift wrapped sweet potato and zucchini noodles. Here’s how to spiralize those veggies, in case you’re new to this:

Here’s what you’ll need:

Spiralized Veggie Gift Bags

Scissors 

Candy cane Hershey kisses via Amazon / Shiny curling ribbon similar via Amazon / Gift bows  similar via Amazon / Gift tags similar via Target / Gift bags similar via Amazon / Cellophane bags  via Target / Holiday tissue paper similar via Target 

Now that you’ve got your supplies ready, you can prepare the gift bags two ways – with or without candy.

With candy:

First, pour a layer of colorful Hershey kisses in the bottom of a cellophone bag.

 Then, in another cellophone bag, add in your spiralize veggie noodles of choice and secure with a twisty tie.

Next, put the bagged spiralized veggies inside that cellophane bag with the candy.
