Gifts From a Basket
The practice of giving fruit baskets can be dated back to ancient cultures.
The Egyptians were the first to give fruit baskets in the form of papyrus, which could be filled with fruits, grains, and flowers.
The Greeks also gave fruit baskets as a way to thank their gods. In Rome, they celebrated Kalends by decorating their homes with wreaths of flowers and laurel leaves.
The practice has evolved today into more decorative displays that are not just for people but also for other occasions like Christmas or weddings.
