I don't often give the gift of food. I invariably order a food gift online and have it delivered directly to the recipient but that doesn't mean I don't have any ideas on how to make food gifts look quirky!
In my kitchen I have whole draw full of disposable chopsticks, knives, forks & spoons and the detritus of eating on the move. I have hoarded these for their gift giving potential - obviously.
I have glued a knife & fork together at the base. As the wood is very porous I have used crayon to write the message. You could do this with plastic cutlery but this may be harder to write on.
To attach to your gift you can use a ribbon (I have done this to a wooden box which would be good to be used for jars of sauces or jams) or you could glue directly to the packaging. If you are giving a metallic gift, you could always attach a magnet to the reverse of the knife & fork and this could then be kept and displayed like a fridge magnet.
FYI - this knife & fork are from Whole Foods Market. They are the best quality I have come across recently!
