With a little over a month before Christmas, I’m sure you are poring over ideas for what to give to friends, family, and co-workers. Food is predictable but always welcome (unless it’s the much-maligned fruit cake). Which brings us to these three edible arrangements that are anything but forgettable.
Apart from offering buttery and soft bread, these pastry boxes also come in adorable packaging. They would make you want to buy two of each: one for your monito/monita and one for you, jolly good fellow.
The Binibini pastry box (P3,500) has a peach vatrushka, two kinds of croissant, pain au chocolat and coffee cardamom, plus a slice of their best-selling babka—all wrapped in a hand-embroidered soft ramie linen cover.
Use it to keep your bread warm, to let your sourdough rise or you know, as a scarf, as one does.
Toyo’s bakery uses special woven plant fiber boxes for its selection of pastries. The taklob boxes more than fit up to six of their in-house creations that include pan de coco buns, mango pagong, pan de regla, and more.
