Château Gâteaux – the Gift That Keeps on Giving

Château Gâteaux – the Gift That Keeps on Giving

What an honour it is to receive a gift. We feel gratitude and warmth towards the person who has gone out of their way to present us with something personal. And willingly giving something special to others fills us with happiness and well-being at showing love and generosity. Gifting allows us to express our appreciation to all the important and loved people in our lives. The big bonus is that it allows us to create closer relationships.

Château Gâteaux perfectly understands the idea of gifting. And we are here to help you shower your loved ones, family and friends with gifts that are delicious, beautiful to look at and wrapped in an array of frostings and toppings. For starters, try our Red Velvet Baked Cheesecake – this gift of a Cream Cheesecake is baked to perfection and set on a red velvet sponge cake, layered with a lemon cream cheese frosting and has a blackcurrant glaze topping. If you order this deliciousness online (or pick it up from one of our convenient stores), it will be concealed in our eye-catching ‘razzberry’ coloured, 100% recyclable box to protect and insulate the surprise inside. Our packaging resembles a beautiful gift box and is stunning if we do say so ourselves!

Decorating and concealing gifts is an exciting tradition. Reusable wrapping cloths, known as furoshiki, were used by the Japanese as far back as the 1600s. Cultures worldwide have wrapping traditions, which  means that the element of surprise in giving and receiving gifts has emotional, uplifting benefits for both parties. Most people used tissue paper to conceal their pressies in the past in Western cultures, and wealthy Victorians chose thick paper, ribbons and lace. Stores, however, decided on brown paper and string to wrap purchases, but when did decorative paper become popular?

Like most things, by accident. Two brothers from the US of A, Joyce & Rollie Hall, owned a stationery store - their tissue paper stocks ran out during the holiday season. So, they raced off and found some fancy French patterned envelope liners and sold them at 10c a sheet. It was a hit, and they sold out quickly. After a few years, they started designing and producing their own decorative gift-wrapping paper, ribbons and bows. Does Hallmark sound familiar? Oh yes, it does.

What's put inside your parcel is most important, though. We have a range of delicacies for you to gift significant people in your life, so look up the wide selection available on our online store. Pick something appealing and appropriate for the lucky recipient. We think hubby would tuck into our Mousse au Chocolat, which has smooth and velvety dark chocolate on the outside and creamy white chocolate hidden in the centre. And we have an idea that our Mozart Cake with layers of soft meringue and hazelnut praline cream would suit your best friend perfectly. Remember this top tip when her birthday comes round, won't you? We'll deliver your surprise beautifully wrapped and ready for the freezer or celebration table in our beautifully designed Château Gâteaux trademark box. Take us along to any celebration event and we won’t let you down as being the life of the party!

PS: All our gifts keep on giving because they can be defrosted slice by slice as needed, from frozen to absolutely fabulous in a matter of hours.
