Sweet pies – Popular sweet pies include, apple pie, sugar pie, pecan pie, pumpkin pie, lemon meringue pie, custard pie, cherry pie, and banoffee pie.


Ways to Gift Pies

Packaging Ideas for Presenting Pie

Pies can be added to a box/basket that can be beautifully decorated. Red box/basket is great for Valentines and weddings while brown or black box/basket is ideal for making a corporate gift. Add shredded papers as the lining of the basket/box and then place the pie packed in an aluminum foil or cardboard box over the base. Place it carefully and decorate the box using colorful ribbons and trinkets to complete the gift.


You can use your own creative ideas or add a personal touch in order to gift pies. They make the perfect gifts for any occasion and are appreciated by all.
