  • A recipe cookbook that has simple as well as exotic seafood recipes can be added along with other gift items.  


Packaging Ideas for Presenting Seafood

Seafood can be placed in a box/basket that can be beautifully decorated. Select the basket/box size according to the number of things you wish to fill in the basket. You may buy a straw basket, or a wicker box. Alternatively, a tin, a plastic container, or a seasonal container may also be used. Embellish the basket with some trinkets and ribbons or buy a decorative basket that does not need any decoration at all. Also, remember that almost all varieties of seafood are perishable, but fish is highly perishable. So make sure that it is packed at the final moment. Before that, it must be stored in the refrigerator.


You can use your own creative ideas or add a personal touch when you gift seafood. They make the perfect gifts for any occasion and are appreciated by all.
