With the holidays right around the corner, many Illinois residents are starting to turn their attention toward finding the perfect gift for that special friend or loved one. Gift giving is an opportunity to show someone just how much you care, and selecting gifts for your favorite food lovers is easier than ever before. An astounding spike in the popularity of cooking and enjoying new culinary experiences has resulted in many opportunities for finding the perfect gift. Here are some ideas to inspire you.
Kitchen and Cooking Gadgets
Most accomplished home cooks have already amassed their preferred pots and pans, knives and other essential tools. However, there is a multitude of food preparation gadgets available for virtually every possible use. Finding a new or unusual device that is in line with someone’s preferred cooking style or tastes is a thoughtful gift that is sure to be put to good use.
A gift card is the perfect gift option for someone who has everything, or for a friend or loved one who loves food but prefers to purchase their own tools, ingredients and supplies. Shinto Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar gift cards also are perfect for the people on your list who may not otherwise treat themselves to a special dinner or night out. Now is a great time to grab a Shinto gift card because we’re offering a special gift promotion between Black Friday and Dec. 30! We’ll add an additional $5 on top of any $25 gift card purchase. The extra amount can be loaded onto the $25 gift card or placed on a separate card. You can buy a gift card through our website, and there is no limit to the number of cards that you can get during this promotion.
Many home cooks are always looking for ways to expand their skills and learn something new. Cooking classes offer the opportunity to try new techniques or flavor combinations while also enjoying a friendly and relaxed social setting. Shinto offers a fun and informative sushi rolling class that allows participants to roll up their sleeves and try their hand at creating different sushi rolls. If you’re looking for an unusual and highly memorable gift option, this is it.
Themed Gift Baskets
For friends and loved ones who enjoy Asian cuisine, a themed gift basket is a thoughtful and highly personalized gift option. Simply start with a beautiful container and include Asian cooking tools, a cookbook and unique ingredients. Items can be found in local kitchen stores, or ordered online through many different retailers. A Shinto gift card is the perfect inclusion in any Asian themed gift basket.
As the holidays approach, the team at Shinto invites you to take the time to relax and remember that spending time with family and friends is the center of all holiday traditions! We believe that an evening at Shinto is an excellent opportunity to reconnect with loved ones and recharge during the hustle and bustle of Christmas and all other winter holidays. We hope to see you at the restaurant soon!
