Bonbonniere's, small boxes decorated with various precious material and metals such as gold, were primarily used for gift giving at special ceremonies. These were originally filled with sugar delicacies, as back then sugar was highly valued.

Current day Jordan Almonds are living proof of this very popular tradition. Many cultures believe that giving almonds as gifts brings good luck to the wedding guests.
