Holiday Gift Baskets for the Gourmet

Aug 21, 2008
When it comes time to purchase a gift for your friend that's a gourmet, you may feel overwhelmed. Especially if you are not a gourmet yourself. Where should you begin? Instead of opting out altogether and sending your buddy a pair of socks, consider sending gourmet holiday gift baskets instead. This eliminates the guesswork out of what to send and also gives your friend or loved one a basket brimming with gifts that they are sure to love. As an added bonus, they can prepare some of the creations in their gourmet basket and you can enjoy eating it!

Here are some things to look for when purchasing gourmet holiday gift baskets:

Contents

You want to pay attention to what comes in the holiday gift baskets. A person only needs so many pate spreaders. Make sure there is some variety in the basket you are selecting. A good basket will have spreads, crackers and maybe even a nice soup mix. Basically a meal in a basket, from appetizer to dessert. While you may have never heard of "she-crab soup," your gourmet friend will delight in trying something new and out of the ordinary.

Price

Gourmet holiday gift baskets can be on the pricey side, so make sure that you are getting ample bang for your buck. As mentioned earlier, you want to make sure there is plenty of variety in your basket to account for the price you are paying for the gourmet foods. Obviously, this isn't a cheese-wiz basket, so you should expect to pay a little more for a high quality basket.

Warranty On The Food

With many gourmet holiday gift baskets there will be foods that possibly could expire or go bad. You will want to inquire if there is any satisfaction guarantee on the gift or a warranty on the food in case of spoilage. Since these items are prepackaged and/or canned, you probably don't have to worry much about spoilage, but it never hurts to ask ahead of time.

Small or Large?

Not sure what your budget can handle? Then maybe you should opt for small gourmet holiday gift baskets instead of large gourmet holiday gift baskets. Either way, you are able to give your friend a well thought out gift filled with gourmet goodies that they are sure to enjoy, but will also fit into any gift giving budget. Also, if you have more than one gourmet friend, (lucky you!), you can opt for smaller baskets so they all can enjoy the gourmet gifts inside and you still have a budget left for the rest of your family and friends around the holidays.

Gourmet holiday gift baskets are an excellent way to treat a friend or loved one that is into high end cooking. These baskets give variety and a veritable meal in a basket for you and your loved one to enjoy. Instead of giving just one gift, give many gifts in the form of a holiday gift basket.
