A bottle of very fine extra virgin olive oil will be much appreciated as a practical and thoughtful gift.

2. Olive oil is perfect for baking. 

Yes, you can bake with olive oil, instead of butter. It's not only possible, but olive oil can give subtle savory nuance to your baked goods. And it's a healthier fat, packed with vitamins, antioxidants and polyphenols. A beautiful bottle of high quality extra virgin olive oil is the perfect encouragement to make olive oil-based cakes and cookies, and the results can be amazing. Which is why olive oil cakes are so popular right now. 

3. Olive oil promotes a healthy lifestyle. 

If you want to encourage someone to make healthier food choices, give them a bottle of excellent extra virgin olive oil. If they get into the habit of using it as often as possible, that's a significant step towards healthy living. Olive oil is healthy fat, with marvelous aromas and flavors that can enhance one's dishes. It's a good way to ease healthier meals into one's lifestyle. 

4. Olive oil is a flavor adventure. 

Like a bottle of wine, an unfamiliar olive oil is an adventure waiting to be discovered. Goya's extra virgin olive oils will please the gourmet who wants to educate his or her palate. An aromatic oil with delightful flavor notes represents a sensory adventure that she or he will love.
