9 Gourmet Gift Baskets for the Food Lovers on Your Nice List
The best thing about holiday gift baskets (and there are many good things) is that the loot never seems to end. You can spend more time unpacking and ogling each item than it takes to actually eat them. Here are holiday gourmet gift baskets packed to the brim for lovers of chocolate, cookies, cheese, or all of the above.
Sugarwish Custom Candy Assortment (from $19): Don't know your gift receiver's candy preferences? With Sugarwish, you write an e-card, choose what size gift you want to give, and send your receiver the link. When they open the email, they fill their box with the candies of their choosing.
The Little Market 'Twas the Night Before Christmas Gift Box ($36): Inside the box are three Divine Chocolate bars as well as a drinking chocolate. Proceeds go toward farmworkers in Ghana.
Stonewall Kitchen Home for the Holidays ($50): Bakers, homebodies, and just about anyone who enjoys the occasional sweet will love making cookies from this basket, which also comes with hot chocolate and sweet sauces for good measure.
Cacao & Cardamom Chocolate Jewelry Box ($58): Bonbons are already luxurious; but you can gift someone special an even classier experience with this jewelry- box-shaped package of chocolate truffles, which look like bright, blingy gems.
Dean & DeLuca Snacks on the Run ($80): Mix and match a dozen of your giftee's favorite Dean & DeLuca snacks, such as gummy candies, assorted nuts, and lots of chocolate-covered deliciousness, all served in classic silver tins.
Harry & David Southern Living Holiday Sled & Cookies Gift ($90): Without a doubt, the chocolate-covered peppermint cookies, German chocolate raspberry cookie bars, and dark chocolate cake cups in this set will disappear in days. But the best part about the gift just might be the sleigh, which detaches into a wooden board that can be used again and again for chopping and serving.
Mouth Easy Like Sunday Morning Gift Box ($91): Know someone who deserves breakfast in bed? Bless them with this lazy-day brunch in a box, complete with coffee, granola, pancake mix, Vermont maple syrup, and bloody Mary fixings.
Williams Sonoma Beehive Cheese Gift Crate ($100): Most people on your gift list will be entertaining during the holidays. Make their lives easier and tastier with this charcuterie gift, overflowing with Beehive Creamery cheeses, fruit, nuts, crackers, jam, and salami.
Stargazer Barn Red Collection ($115): This thoughtful gift from Stargazer Barn lets you give a loved one the ultimate bad-day cure: flowers, wine, and chocolate. Both the wine and the lilies are produced at the Stargazer farm and paired with Dick Taylor craft chocolate.
