'Tis the season for giving - especially to those that gave to you in some way or another over the year. In particular; teachers, employees, faithful customers & clients, nannies, party hostesses. An unexpected gesture of recognition around the holidays is always a touching way to show your appreciation.

If you're sick of giving the same ol' box of chocolates or items that will absentmindedly get shoved into the desk drawer, I suggest you look into these fashionable foods - Paulette Macarons. My girlfriend, Lori, was given a box of 24 as a gift recently. Of course she busted them out when the pregnant lady came to visit. Before even diving into one, I inspected the stylish packaging. It was love at first sight. Their rainbow array of colorful cookies are made so perfectly pretty and the varying list of flavors made for a fun conversation piece. After much talk and research on the price (a little steep at $1.60/cookie), we nibbled away. Ohhhhhh my goodness, this little cookie packs a macho 1-2 punch. The outside was crispy and crunchy & the inside delicately chewy and dense. They melt in your mouth with just the right amount of sweetness and texture the way a good mararon should. So worth every penny!
If you want to give a gift that will get everyone oohing and ahhing, order some Paulette Macarons. In addition to holiday gifts, these are great for any occasion, any time of the year. The Mini-Boxes would make for an adorable hostess gift at a baby shower or as an unforgettable wedding favor!
