Here’s to new beginnings!

What’s even better is that this is not just about olive oil, it’s everything you need to have the perfect tasting olive oil.

Here’s how it works:


The cool thing about this is that it becomes a DIY project! You can basically mix and match any of the spices provided with your favorite olive oil and wait for the magic to happen. I made three different mixtures: 1) garlic and rosemary, 2) chili flakes and oregano, 3) basil, thyme and oregano. Then I added the olive oil and left them to stand for about one week. What happens after a week is all the flavor gets infused into the olive oil without any chemicals and artificial ingredients…just the magic that happens with dried herbs, spices and olive oil. And that’s when the dipping party starts! I ended up using the infused olive oils on the dipping plates to go along with a fun cheese board I made for some friends. I even used some of the infused olive oil to toast garlic rosemary bread. The possibilities are endless, especially if you’re an olive oil lover!

Here’s my 2 cents:

  1. Quality Products and Great Packaging: Not only are the fusti, glass bottles and spice tubes beautifully designed, but even the packaging has a contemporary, classy and high-end look to it. The products and the packaging really caught my eye. They are unique in the presentation but also durable and high quality. You can bet the person receiving this gift will feel like they are truly receiving something valuable.
  2. It’s a Product AND an Experience: For an olive oil lover, getting olive oil is a huge treat. Getting everything you need to mix and match and infuse your own olive is another level! I love that the gift has a DIY component to it. This allows the gift to transform from a simple product to an experience. Plus, it’s just super fun to play mixologist for 10 minutes and taste test to figure out which creation is a keeper.
  3. Curated Gift: Each Thoughtfully themed gift, including this one for olive oil lovers, comes with a story sheet that shares the origins and meaning behind the gift. That brings so much significance and thought to the gift and makes it feel extra personal, which is extra cool!

All in all, this foodie totally approves of theΒ Thoughtfully gift boxes. It takes a lot to turn a house into a home. Thank you Thoughtfully for helping us create new memories in our new home with this fun foodie gift – aΒ truly thoughtful gift that’s a curated adventure!Β 

PS: This is not just for olive oil lovers. There’s something for everyone: the barbecue sauce savant, the tea time enthusiast, the coffee connoisseur, etc. etc. You get where I’m going…haha
