The holiday season holds a lot of fond and warm memories for the Filipino family. They say it is the happiest time of the year, and it could not have been any truer. All people come together in merrymaking and festivities.  All petty differences are cast aside, and we celebrate with each other. It is the time when families come together and share precious moments of love, joy, and generosity.

The tradition of gift-giving during the holiday season is deeply ingrained in the Filipino family. Come to think about it, everyone has, at some point, experienced the exhilaration and thrill of finding surprise presents under the tree, dying in anticipation what could be hiding under colorful wrappers artfully concealing them.  These instances somehow bring about the stress of not knowing what to give as presents or what to make as holiday treats that will make them happy, especially for moms like you who normally bear the brunt of this unavoidably tedious task.

Choosing what presents to give or what treats to make for family and friends should never be an issue. This season, Gardenia Delicia chocolate spread is a perfect solution in curbing that unwelcome holiday stress, which, in turn, creates precious family moments. Spreading sweetness during the season of love and giving has never been easier with Gardenia Delicia chocolate spreads.

If you are not sure what to give your loved ones, why not add your personal touch and craft delicious treats using these creamy and delicious chocolate spreads?  Delicia is a perfect addition to ramp up the flavor of traditional Yuletide fares such as cookies and cakes that you can give to your loved ones or enjoy with your own families.

As a mom, you can even recruit the help of your kids while whipping up holiday treats, which makes for a memorable bonding moment. Deciphering recipes, preparing ingredients, laughing over silly cooking mishaps, choosing which Gardenia Delicia spread to use, and finally finishing cooking the recipe together and yielding delightfully delicious treats make for quality time spent with family.
