Appropriate for all occasions, an olive oil gift set is the perfect option for a gift that provides class and elegance while not being too pricey. Read on to find out why.

Why an Olive Oil gift set?

Symbolically known as the “joy of the spirit”, this product has had a strong symbolic meaning throughout its history, and all its implications and connotations are beneficial. The gift of elegance for generations has been regarded as olive oil. Even Ulysses, the god of war is said to have provided tiny vials of extra virgin olive oil as the ideal hostess present.

The olive tree has been associated with abundance, tranquillity, and longevity for more than 4,000 years. The olive tree and its priceless fruit and oil have long played significant roles in society and were given as a gift by a goddess, cherished by ancient nations, and guarded by monarchs.

Zoom forward to the modern era, and olive oil is the gift that keeps giving. An olive oil gift set that guarantees high quality at affordable prices is a worthy choice for all occasions.

Olive oil will, therefore, always be a much-appreciated gift. This, combined with the multiple health benefits that olive oil provides, creates a unique and thoughtful experience.

Get your healthy fats from olive oil

Olive oils offer many beneficial fats!

11% of the oil in olive oil is polyunsaturated, such as omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, while saturated fat makes up 11% of the oil. The rest of olive oil is made up of oleic acid – a fatty acid that dominates the composition of olive oil.

Oleic acid can lessen inflammation and even have positive effects on cancer-related genes. It is also suitable for cooking as the monounsaturated fats are highly heat resistant!
