The Perfect Gift: Festive Food Baskets

The Perfect Gift: Festive Food Baskets

Looking for the perfect gift idea, even for those who have everything? Try a gift basket filled with edible goodies! You can make your own gift baskets inexpensively, tailoring them to each recipient, and it‘s a lot of fun. If you have time, feel free to do your own baking and making, but if you don’t, just buy treats ready-made. Arrange the goodies in a pretty basket, top with a bow, and off you go! Gourmet gift baskets remind me of the Spirit of Christmas Present from Dickens’ A Christmas Carol: so abundant and festive, like the very essence of the holiday.

We’ve collected some great ideas to inspire you. Try the Coffee Break Basket for a busy co-worker, the Under the Tuscan Sun basket for your friend who loved the movie, or a Chocolate-Lover’s Basket for just about anybody! All these ideas and much more, here:
