Gourmet Gift Baskets: The Perfect Gift Giving Solution
Even if you love giving gifts, it's hard to find the time these days. With work, commuting, household chores, children and all their activities, who has time to shop? I recently moved across the country from my hometown where all my family lives. It's not always possible to be there for special occasions such as a good friend's birthday, my parent's wedding anniversary, Christmas, or many other special occasions. Too often I have thought of sending my family some fresh fruits or wine or chocolate, but shipping always seems to be an issue. It didn't take me long to find a great solution to a lot of my gift-giving needs -- gourmet gift baskets!
Gourmet gift baskets can include much more than chocolate or fruit. For special occasions such as Mother's Day, a gift basket might include lotions, bath salts, pretty towels and soaps. Sports enthusiasts will enjoy customized sports gift baskets with plenty of souvenirs for their favorite team such as bumper stickers, ball caps, mugs and team logo pillows. New baby gift baskets are perfect for a fresh and unique gift. Each gift basket is filled with towels, stuffed animals, cute decorations and necessities for a newborn.
I remember a few years ago when I worked for a company that fabricated custom stone building materials. When we had exceptional months we'd often received corporate gift baskets from our vendors. Every Christmas we'd receive several gourmet gift baskets filled with our favorite goodies. We'd always receive chocolate dipped strawberries, scrumptious cookies, chocolates, chocolate dipped pretzels, fresh fruit, and even a cheesecake sampler!
Just thinking about chocolate and fresh fruit in a beautifully decorated basket with a color-coordinating bow reminds me that I need to order a birthday gift basket for my mother. Her birthday is coming up soon! With the high price of traveling across the country and special occasions and unexpected events popping up, I have a feeling I'll be sending a lot more gourmet gift baskets in the future.
