Different seasons of the year bring out the food gift baskets in droves. People love giving them and receiving them. Food gift baskets can also be given for any occasion and no occasion.
They can be small or they can be elaborate. It’s totally up to you and your budget as to how fancy you get with them. Following are some ideas you can try out if you get stuck.
1. Anniversary Dinner Basket: These are great for those One Year Anniversary celebrations. Many times couples don’t have a great deal of money to spend on their anniversary, so if you assemble an Anniversary Dinner Basket, it may be just the perfect gift.
Include whatever type of food they prefer, but a lot of them are made up of two steaks, potatoes to bake, salad fixings, dinner rolls, bottle of wine, two wine glasses, dessert, and some candles thrown in. These may also have a CD of romantic music or a romantic DVD to watch together.
2. Breakfast Basket: These can be any size so you can assemble one for a couple or for a family. Typical staples are coffee, tea, mugs, pancake mix, small ham, jellies, jams, preserves, pancake syrup, bagels, grits, and anything else you can think of to add for breakfast.
3. Snack Basket: Another basket that can be made in many sizes, start out with different types of cheese, gourmet crackers, summer sausage, and various other snack food. These baskets can be dressed up with a bottle of wine and glasses, or dressed down to include such things as popcorn and soda. The rule of thumb here is to go with what you know and you’ll have the perfect basket.
4. Gourmet Food Basket: If you’re trying to figure out what sort of food basket to give to someone that loves the finer things in life, consider a gourmet food basket. Pairing the best in foods with the best in wines can make someone very happy. Add some beautiful wine glasses and some cutlery and utensils and you’re good to go.
