Germany-Inspired Gift Basket Ideas

The western-central part of Europe experiences a boom in tourism as visitors flock to the exciting region of Germany, which is flanked by the North Sea, Denmark, the Baltic Sea, Poland, Austria, France, and Switzerland (to name a few). Situated as a leader in both the import and export of goods, the country serves as a distinct presence in the European economy (holding strong to the top spot). In the world, Germany stands as the third largest economy, trailing behind the United States and Japan. It is through this success in business that we enjoy the exchange in the latest machinery and classy automobiles.

For example, without Germany, where would we get the exquisite Mercedes-Benzes that decorate the garages and highways of the United States? To pay homage to the popular makes and models of cars that find their way to assorted parts of the world, a helpful car-related gift basket can help keep your customers' vehicle in tip-top visual condition.

Popular approaches could hinge upon keeping the car clean and creating a comfortable car environment. Ideas to ponder include a Mercedes Benz Car Wash gift basket that utilizes the iconic logo in the decoration, which accompanies an assortment of wax, shampoo, car rag, polish, and tire cleaner products. A New Car gift basket may offer convenient car accessories, such as air fresheners, new car scent sprays, and a CD visor holder.

The arts are quite prominent throughout Germany, showcasing an energetic performing and visual arts community that embraces a long line of world-renown painters, writers, and performers. To branch off from some of the defining points of the cultural, creative, and historic aspects of the country, you may utilize the themes offered at the Ethnologisches Museum. It is here that an array of East Asian, Mayan, Aztec, Indian, and early European art items are on display. Gift baskets may include unique art prints, colorful artsy postcards, spices from India, an array of teas from the Orient, and art supplies to accommodate budding artists receiving a gift basket meant to spark creativity and imagination.

Sports and recreation are well known in Germany, where the world recognizes the power the country holds in the fields of track, tennis, cycling, and Formula One auto racing. Throughout the region, residents take pride in their sports facilities that accommodates both players and the fans. After all, without Germany, we would never have enjoyed the talents of Steffi Graf or Boris Becker. Ski resorts are also popular in the country, where German Alps gift basket products could turn out to be the latest rage.

The Munich Oktoberfest is not the only time to enjoy a nice mug of beer. The historic cultural experience has entered celebratory arenas beyond the German country. Every year, close to 6,000,000 liters of beer are consumed at the true festival location. To enjoy an important aspect of the German culture, a gift basket may showcase one of the 1,300 brewery samples that are scattered about the country. Popular items may include German ales, such as the alt, which is a dark amber beer originating around Dusseldorf and Lower Rhine. Lagers are also popular, such as the infamous pilsener, which showcases a light body and prominent hop features. Beck's, Krombacher, Bitburger, Veltins, and Warsteiner are some of the biggest brands of the region, although the south will showcase an array of tasty authentic local brews.
