Gift Baskets

Everyone likes to receive a nice gift basket especially if filled with all of their favorite stuff. Gift Baskets are great when you’re too busy to go to the mall and find a gift. They’re also perfect for corporate giving or sending to a friend or relative on special occasions and holidays.

Gourmet Gift Baskets

These are my favorite baskets to receive. Filled with all sorts of gourmet surprises including jams, sauces, chocolates, pasta, olive spread, cheese spread, truffles, lemon breezes, cheese crackers, nuts, smoked fish, chocolate-covered peanut brittle, caramel popcorn, mint chocolate cookie joys, English toffee cookies, sparkling cider, chocolate almond orange biscotti – to name a few.

Fruit Baskets

Who doesn’t like a box of fresh pears or apples in the fall or a basket of fresh oranges in the winter? The quality of the fruit is incredible and besides the more popular varieties you can find exotic fruits too.

Chocolate Gift Baskets

And who doesn’t like chocolate? There are tons of sweet and delicious items that can be stuffed into a chocolate gift basket. Belgian Chocolates, chocolate bars, spread, florentines….
