Gift Basket Ideas For The Person You Don't Know Too Well

Aug 18, 2007
Gift baskets can be the perfect gift for any occasion. Although gift baskets can be highly personalized for those that you really care about, another perk to gift baskets is the fact that they can be very general as well. If you are looking for a gift to give to someone that you do not know very well, a gift basket can be a good option and often involves food in one way or another. After all, everyone loves food!

The Baked Goods Basket

Baked goods are a great addition to a gift basket to someone that you do not know very well. Items such as cookies, cupcakes, and brownies are all delicious and make a for a wonderful gift. If you want to make the gift basket seem a bit more personal despite the general nature of the gift, you can go through the effort of baking the goods yourself.

The Cheese Basket

Nearly everyone loves cheese and a cheese basket containing a variety of different cheeses can be very well received. Gift baskets containing cheese can be purchased from many gift stores, which means you don't have to go through the trouble of purchasing and cutting the cheese on your own. If you decide to add soft spread cheese to the basket, you might want to include a decorative butterknife for the person to use for the spreading - and, don't forget the crackers!

The Coffee and Tea Basket

If the person you are buying for enjoys drinking coffee or tea, you might want to consider putting together a basket containing a variety of gourmet coffees or herbal teas. This way, every time the person takes a sip, he or she will think of you. You might want to consider placing a mug inside, too.

The Barbecue Basket

If you have reason to believe that the person enjoys eating barbecued foods, you can also put together a basket of various barbecue sauces of different flavors. That way, the person can choose the flavor he or she is most in the mood for at the time. A basting brush would make a nice addition.

The Sausage Basket

Around the holidays, you can find a variety of different flavors of sausage that tastes great and cut up and put on crackers. Put together a basket containing a variety of sausage samples as well as different types of crackers for the person to enjoy. A small cutting board and knife would be perfect to add to this basket.
