Adding Your Own Touch To Wine Gift Baskets

Aug 11, 2008
The most common contains two bottles of wine and a complimentary snack such as cheese and crackers. Purchasing a wine gift basket is very easy to do. You can go online and search for wineries and buy them direct or buy them from a flower delivery site.

A very inexpensive way to buy a quality wine gift basket is by visiting a winery and purchasing one while there. They might be on sale because most wineries like to feature their seasonal wines. You can also get a discount for buying more than one basket while there or ask the management to see if you can custom create your own basket.

Custom creating one yourself gives you control over the type of wine in the basket and the type of snacks and decorations. Giving it that personal touch gives you an advantage over just buying a generic basket. Everyone loves to receive beautiful food gift baskets as gifts. They are a wonderful and thoughtful gift, but they can also be quite expensive at times.

There is no need to pay $100 for a beautiful food gift basket when you can create one on your own. I have seen many sites that charge over $150 for these gifts and then tack on a $40 charge for taxes and shipping costs. It's outrageous and unnecessary after reading these tips.

I have bought many food gift baskets only to find out later that the food inside my gift was either expired or over packaged and the cookie tin only had 5 cookies in it. I now go out and buy my own boxes of cookies, crackers, cheeses and fruits from the market or a large club to save money. I even clip coupons for these items so that the will be even cheaper.

You can also get beautiful baskets for sale by buying them at a crafts store or a dollar store near you. You can also get pretty wrapping and ribbons at a dollar store too. Personally delivering your basket will save money on shipping costs and you will get to see the recipient's surprised face when you hand them the gift.

There are many times when I don't know what to get someone for a gift so I always give gourmet gift baskets when I'm in that situation. It's a great gift for anniversary's weddings, couples, Christmas and so much more. There are a variety of gourmet gift baskets that you can give.
