Give this to the tea lover in your life and they’ll have everything they need to make a nice cup of tea, including the teapot and cup. Of course there is also plenty of teas to choose from, so they can sample them and discover which they like best. They even include scissors with this so they’ll have no trouble opening it once it arrives.
To test gift baskets, we ordered 11 baskets that cost around $100 from each of the top companies we researched. We took careful notes of how the baskets arrived and what condition they were in before we opened them up and spread the contents out in our break room. We gave each of our testers a ballot with the names of each basket and room to rate five food items from each basket. We also had our testers vote on the best basket overall and any food items that exceeded expectations. We then collected all the ratings and ranked baskets by the average of all the food scores.
At first glance, you may think there’s no way Harry & David could carry gift baskets that are affordably priced – after all, the specialize in gourmet gift baskets. But, just like us, Harry & David understand that everyone has a gifting budget.
With over 120 pages (on most devices) and over 200 photographs I lead you through how to find, where to buy, how to put together amazing inexpensive gift baskets. For both the absolute beginner to the business gift basket maker this has information that is priceless. I include Google searches to show you where you can find these great deals in your own neighborhoods. For those that are starting their own businesses I include links to whole sale dealers.
I ordered this Five Star Gourmet Nuts Gift Tray as a holiday gift to bring to my best friend’s house for Christmas. He and his family love munching on this type of snack. The assortment arrived very quickly, was well packaged and free from damage except for one corner of the box, which was smushed in but didn’t affect the interior product. The snacks came in a plastic sectioned and sealed tray for freshness which made it perfect for the special occasion. The tray features delicious, fresh and high quality whole nuts. Perfect for gift giving or to eat at home.
Due to a disappointing day at the Paddocks Centre Market yesterday, i have decided to have an auction to clear all of our Valentines Day gifts that did not sell. As well as Valentines Day gifts, the auction also includes some Christmas gifts – the prices of which are very low – with prices so low, why not bid and win yourself some chocolate! There will also be a nappy cake and a few other chocolate bouquets up for grabs.
May these items inspire your Christmas gift giving to be creative, magical, and oh-so merry! For even more great gift ideas, be sure and check out our Christmas Neighbor Gift Ideas and our list of 101 Non-Toy Christmas Gifts! Happy Gifting!
We had 20 people taste and rate the food from this basket, and the food received a B+ score, the second highest after the Harry & David basket. Our testers especially enjoyed the selection of cheeses in this basket. They loved the bleu cheese, and the lavender-infused goat cheese was one of the highest rated food items across our entire taste test. This basket focused on gourmet foods like cheese and meat, but it lacked some of the snackable sweets and treats that other baskets had. You can search for almost any food item on igourmet’s website, and this company offers over 200 different baskets so you should be able to find foods that your recipients will enjoy. This company will ship ground, expedited or overnight so you should be able to get your basket to its destination when you need it. In terms of add-ons, you can add extra snacks to your order, but this company doesn’t have cards or stuffed animals that you can add to your basket.
The most common types of baskets sent during the holiday season are food baskets. If you are making a fresh fruit basket make sure that not all the fruit is fully ripe, only the portion that is showing should be with the rest of the fruit at different stages of ripeness.
Affordable Gift Baskets will also be at the Paddocks Centre Markets on Saturday 11th February from 9am until 1pm. We will have our full Valentines Day range available as well as a variety of other chocolate bouquets, gift baskets and nappy cakes. Why not order a Valentines Day present today and pick it up from the Paddocks Centre Market. This way you will not miss out!!!
The Harry & David box came with pears, sweet onion relish and a selection of cheese, sliceable meet and sweet snacks. The pears were ripe and sweet and the highest rated fruit out of all the baskets we tasted. This company offers kosher, vegan and gluten-free baskets, and it’s easy to search for themed baskets on its website. Harry & David is part of 1-800-Flowers, so if you want you can easily shop for flowers or other gifts from the family of websites. Harry & David ships this gift box in a nicely wrapped cardboard box, which was slightly less impressive than the reusable wicker baskets that other companies used to ship their baskets. However, because the food in the Founders’ Favorite Gift Box tasted so good, we’re confident that anyone will appreciate this basket. This company ships its baskets to some international destinations like Canada, Germany and the U.K., and you can also ship baskets to APO/FPO addresses.
I am looking forward to attending the Paddocks Centre Markets on Saturday 11th February from 9am until 1pm. We will have our full Valentines Day range available as well as a variety of other chocolate bouquets, gift baskets and nappy cakes.
You would be surprised at how much a $20 bill will get you with Harry & David – such as a box of smoke hams, cheeses and crackers. For less than $30 you have tons of options as well, ranging from treat towers packed full of sweets to their classic sausage and cheese gift boxes. You can even order up a breakfast gift basket for less than $30.
This basket is filled to the gills with all sorts of items pulled from the sea. Fish lovers will love diving into the smoked mackerel, or a nice hot bowl of clam chowder. There’s even smoked salmon and Fisherman’s Stew so they’ll have a ton of seafood treats to work their way through.
I’m a friendly gal who’s obsessed with all things marriage and Hubby-related :). When I’m not having adventures with my Sweetheart, you can find me in photographer mode, deep in a Netflix binge, or getting my sweat on – after all, ‘endorphins make you happy!’ I also enjoy treasure hunting (aka. thrifting), dark chocolate, and eating as much sushi as possible!

Use a pretty stainless steel Colander or Strainer as the basket and pack it full of stylish pot holders and pretty food and kitchen items like a nice salt and pepper grinder. Perfect idea for your friends who love to cook! | Great idea via World Market
Give them all the sweet they can handle, and take them back to an earlier time with candies that have been around for decades. They’ll certainly remember these from being a kid: Pop Rocks, a Clark Bar, a candy necklace, gummy bears, you name it, if it’s retro candy it’s probably in here.
I was invited by Target to do some gift basket shopping. Of course all of it being centered around Starbucks Holiday K-CUPs & the absolutely delicious melt-in-your-mouth Lindt LINDSOR Chocolates. All of which you can find at your local Target store on sale through December 24th!
Give them the Royal Treatment and they’ll receive a basket filled with red and white wine, and plenty of snacky treats to go with it. Crackers, peanuts, and popcorn made with a quality that’s fit for a king and queen are just some of the items they’ll enjoy. Show them you care and want nothing but the best for them.
Do you have a special someone who loves beer? Get them this beer guzzler’s dream basket. A sleek black basket filled with all the best beer-related items: pint glasses, beer pong cups and balls, snacks… he probably already has the beer! This is a perfect combo for a housewarming, student party or birthday.
I’m a nut freak, and treat myself occasionally to a well-presented tray. I’ve purchased from other sellers on Amazon, and Benevelo really stands out with style and design. The box is striking and way more artistic in real life. Super fresh nuts – all in all it made an impression here at my office.
If the container that you have chosen is very deep then you will want to put a few layers of newspaper or tissue paper on the bottom to raise all the items up so they are displayed better. Florist will often make the bottom half of a basket “fill” so that the items rise above the edge of the container and it all looks fuller and lusher than it actually is.

I found it very useful. I like that you included the information regarding anyone who is using it for a business. I am just starting out and need to learn how to promote my business. Thanks for the information and your book.
Give them all the Tex Mex flavor they can stand with this basket full of items like queso, guacamole, chili, and a hot sauce that will light up their mouth. This is the sort of gift that goes over really well with anyone that likes spicy food, or particularly Mexican cuisine.
