Have you ever gotten a gift basket for your birthday or anniversary? It is so exciting to look at the card and see who it is from and read the nice words they wrote. Then you can't wait to dig in to the basket and enjoy everything that is in it. Unfortunately, though, at least in my experiences with gift baskets, there are only one or two things in the basket I usually like. That is the reason I don't normally send gift baskets.
Well, my friends, my days of not sending gift baskets are OVER! I recently found GourmetGiftBaskets.com and I am absolutely amazed at all of the awesome gift baskets they have! And not only do they have an amazing variety of gift baskets, every item in the gift basket is a high quality item that people will enjoy. GourmetGiftBaskets.com has so many different types of gift baskets. You can send Christmas Gift Baskets, Hanukkah Gift Baskets, Chocolate Gift Baskets, Fruit Gift Baskets, and even Beer Gift Baskets and Wine Gift Baskets! And for something different, how about sending someone special a Breakfast Gift Basket, a Pizza Gift Basket, a Golf Gift Basket, or even a Car Wash Gift Basket? There are so many possibilities! You will always find a great gift basket to send for any occasion!
I was sent the Holiday Sweets & Treats Snowflake Tin™ – Christmas Gift Basket for review.
The beautiful snowflake tin is filled with award-winning snacks such as dark chocolate nonpareils, butter toffee shortbread cookies, lightly salted Virginia peanuts, raspberry honey mustard pretzel dip, seasoned dipping pretzels, gingerbread cookies, and sinfully delicious vanilla wafer rolls.
Here is what the basket looked like when it arrived...
It was so pretty that I didn't even want to open it. Well, OK, I did want to open it because everything inside looked so yummy. And it was! I'll be honest and tell you that there isn't much left. Brian and I polished off the shortbread cookies and the nonpareils, and the kids LOVE the vanilla wafer rolls. This gift basket was a hit in our house!
The gift baskets from GourmetGiftBaskets.com start at $29.99. There is a wide range of prices depending on what you are looking for. The basket we received for this review sells for $49.99. The shipping costs depend on when you want your basket delivered. It is easy to place an order, and when you add something to your cart, a calendar comes up with all of the available delivery dates, and the shipping amount for each date. I really like this feature. It helps to know up front how much shipping will cost.
I highly recommend GourmetGiftBaskets.com for your gift-giving needs! Make sure you head over and check out all of the amazing gift baskets they carry. Grab some coffee, though, because you'll be on that site for a while like I was! You can also find GourmetGiftBaskets.com on Facebook and Twitter.
