With nearly everyone pinching pennies these days, this is no time to spend money on frivolous gifts. That's why I like to send gift baskets for every occasion. They are festive and fun and put welcome food on the table. And they fit within my modest budget.
Gift baskets come in more assortments than you possibly imagine. Read on for some of my favorites.
Gourmet gift baskets
Who wouldn't like a wicker basket filled with delicious comfort food? A basket brimming with nuts, olives, crackers, chocolate chip cookies, espresso cake, butter toffee pretzels, toffee, coffee, tea, popcorn, jam, and chocolate candy will bring delight for weeks and weeks.
For a sweet-toothed friend, a house-shaped box overflowing with gourmet sweet treats may hit the spot. Chocolate mints, caramel corn, shortbread, jellybeans, and other tasty snacks are sure to please.
If it's time to celebrate, send over an embossed metal ice bucket full of delicious sparkling juice, chocolates, cookies, almond toffee, and wafers. Decorated with stars and streamers, it's a party all by itself.
Christmas gift baskets
Santa will have an easy job this year with bright red velvet Santa bags filed with Christmas goodies. Tasty sensations include candy, caramel corn, spice drops, shortbread cookies, white chocolate cocoa, mints, and chocolate.
Send a reusable holiday wicker tray bearing gourmet coffee, chocolates, mints, crackers, and butter cookies. Dressed up with Santa decorations it's bound to please.
Easter gift baskets
If you combine candy and baskets, what do you get? Why, Easter, of course! How about malted eggs, chocolate bunnies, jellybeans, milk chocolate eggs, marshmallow bunnies, and Easter cookies in a smart-looking reusable planter basket?
For the duck lovers on your list, send an adorable musical quacking duck surrounded by colorful Easter candies, all stuffed into a white picket fence planter.
Corporate gift baskets
Even working people like special treats! Let your gift basket send a message of congratulations or appreciation. For the rising star, send a glittering star gift container overflowing with chocolate cream filled wafer cookies, pretzel mix, malt balls, chocolate squares, and almond vanilla cookies.
For the health conscious client, send a fruit basket with your choice or oranges, five kinds of apples, and two kinds of pears.
There's no better way to send your appreciation than with a basket filled with everything you need for a smart afternoon tea, all wrapped in a personalized ribbon.
Holiday gift baskets
Whatever the holiday, you can find a gift basket that fits the occasion. Green candies for St. Patrick's Day, red hearts for Valentine's Day, and orange and black treats for Halloween. Thank your host for a delicious turkey dinner with a festive Thanksgiving basket. Mom and Dad will know you love them when you remember their special days with gift baskets.
Easy and economical
It's easy to send a gift basket and it costs less than you think. Imagine the delight on your friends' faces when they receive such a thoughtful gift of edibles. You can never go wrong with a gift basket, because everyone eats!
