Halloween Treats for Ghosts and Goblins of All Ages

comments 0

Halloween isn’t over when your child declares they are “too old” to dress up or moves away for college. It doesn’t even have to end when they bring their own children into the world or move halfway across the country to start their career. Halloween gift baskets for adults allow you to spook your favorite ghosts and goblins no matter where life takes them.

You may even consider sending a Halloween candy care package to your office to keep employee morale high. There is nothing like a sugar high to increase productivity levels over the holiday season! Our Halloween care package is also the perfect gift for college students who secretly wish they were dressing up like Batman instead of hitting the books.

Halloween gift baskets for adults are often appropriate for younger children if you don’t want them dressing up and roaming the streets to collect candy from strangers. You can give them all of their favorite treats in a festive bouquet, including a decorative container that kids of all ages enjoy.

From Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Hershey Kisses to Starburst and candy corn, Halloween gift baskets, bouquets and care packages excite the sweet tooth of every spook in your life. Think of your best friend, your sibling or your favorite aunt going back to their childhood when they receive your Halloween treat. Take a look through our delicious offerings for Halloween gift baskets and send one to someone you love spooktacularly today!

Gift Baskets for Dogs

Dog owners know that there is a special bond between human and canine, and our dogs become a part of our family as soon as they give us kisses with their little wet noses.  What better way to celebrate a milestone than with a dog gift basket made just for the playful pooch!

If you know someone who has this special relationship with a dog (and let’s face it, most of us do…) then sending a beautifully crafted dog gift basket full of toys, treats and special items will delight doggies and humans alike!

For a new addition to the family, choose one of our peanut butter puppy bones in a beautiful gift box, wrapped perfectly and with a personalized message from you. For the dog with a little dash of diva, the Bark Avenue gourmet dog gift basket contains delicious treats in a reusable tin canister, apple spice doggie snacks, a squeaky plush bone, and so much more in a beautiful box container that can be used again and again. There are so many different options to choose from, no dog – or owner – will soon forget the thought and love you put into choosing the perfect dog gift basket.

No matter what you choose, taking the time to recognize the furry members of the family is important to both the dogs and their owners.  Celebrate milestones, or just let them know you’re thinking of them, with unique dog gift baskets from BisketBaskets.com.

Make Your Haunted Attraction Even Better This Year with Halloween Candy Bouquets!

comments 0

I was fortunate enough to grow up in an area where Halloween was a very big deal. Starting toward the middle of September, and sometimes running into November, Halloween attractions big and small cropped up in surrounding towns like wildfire. While there wasn’t always something exciting to do most of the year, for a month-and-a-half there were more haunted houses, haunted hayrides, pumpkin patches and corn mazes to visit than we could keep up with!

My friends and I all had our favorites based on a multitude of factors, and every weekend our parents took turns driving us to the next one on our list. While admission wasn’t always cheap, most of these haunted or Fall-themed attractions were run by local non-profits, including volunteer fire departments and animal shelters. The money we paid helped them with their yearly expenses, and we got a good scare, or just some seasonal fun, in the process.

In order to raise even more money beyond the cost of a ticket, some of these haunted attractions hosted raffles, with the winner being chosen on the last day of the season. And those raffles are exactly what our Halloween candy bouquets would be perfect for! If you’re part of an organization that will be running a Fall or Halloween attraction or event this year, consider adding a raffle for one of our Halloween candy bouquets. You might be surprised by how many extra donations you can scare up!

We give our dog gift baskets quite a bit of love here on the Bisket Baskets blog, but today we’re letting cute and cuddly kitties take center stage!

Who can resist their pleasant purrs, adventurous spirit, and hilarious antics? Not me!

If you or someone special in your life has a kitty they simply adore, consider one of our cat gift baskets as the perfect present! (You thought we were going to say purr-fect, but we didn’t!) While our selection of cat gift baskets is smaller than our dog gift basket selection, we’re confident you’ll find them just as charming. You can even opt to have a pet gift basket sent 4 or 6 times a year to keep the treats and toys coming!

Dog Gift Baskets: Because The Love They Give Has No Limits

comments 0

If you’re a regular reader of the Bisket Baskets blog – which we hope you are! – you’ve likely noticed that we write about our dog gift baskets quite a bit. The reason for that is a simple one: I am the one who writes the posts most often, and I am the quintessential ‘dog person’ through and through.

There are few things about dogs I don’t adore. I love their expressive eyes, I love their wagging tails, I love how affectionate they are, I love the way they look when they excitedly run through a park. And those sounds they make when they want a bite of your food so badly? While some people find them annoying, they endear dogs to me even further. If it was socially acceptable to make those sounds when I saw something I wanted, I’m sure I would!

I’ve loved dogs as long as I can remember, and just when I think it’s impossible to love them more than I already do, I somehow find a way. I’m that lady who stops every single person walking their dog that crosses my path to ask if I can pet him or her. I’m that lady who follows countless dog-centered pages on social media sites just so I see pictures of pooches every time I log on. I’m that lady whose dog is her phone screensaver, computer screensaver, and whose picture is most prominently displayed on her desk. I’m a crazy dog lady, and I’m OK with that! Because as much as I love people, there is no denying the friendship you form with your dog is one-of-a-kind. I’ve had other pets in my life, and as much as I loved them all, I never felt that dog connection.

It likely comes as no surprise that I spoil my dog a bit. But honestly – he spoils me even more! If I accidentally wake him up when he’s having a snooze, he doesn’t get mad at me. He makes sure everything is OK before going back to bed. If I’m having a stressful day or I’m just not feeling well, he’s always ready to be a goof and make me smile, or to keep me company on the couch. If I get caught up at work, he doesn’t get mad that I’m home late. He’s too happy to see me to waste time on a grudge. And it’s for these reasons and many more that I make sure he gets the toys, treats, and dog gift baskets that he so deserves. Dogs have taught me that even on a freezing cold winter day, you have to see the sun for the clouds and play in the snow! The least I can do for the amazing animals that have made and continue to make my life so much better is give them treats. :)

A Treat in the Heat: Spectacular Summer Gift Baskets!

comments 0

After months that felt like years of seeing snowstorms on the nightly weather forecast, most of us are finally getting used to the idea that we won’t have to trudge outside an hour before work to shovel out our cars. At least not for a few months, anyway! I have finally tucked away my sweaters, the shovel and rock salt are in the garage, and I’ve been wearing maxi dresses that feel less like clothes and more like a flag of freedom. I can feel the breeze on my skin, and instead of instantly drying out my skin upon contact, it’s refreshing! As someone who has always been an autumn person, I’m embracing this weather with an appreciation I didn’t even know I had in me. I was cold for so, so, so long, and it feels so, so, so amazing to be warm!

With this new weather comes a new lineup of foods as well. My cravings for heavy chowders and casseroles have been packed away with my winter clothes as I enjoy salads, smoothies, fresh fruit and other light fare. But my taste for more substantial eats hasn’t waned completely; I’m just leaning more toward typical summer goodness like ice cream and burgers.

If someone you know is celebrating a summer birthday, or you’ve been invited for a cookout and want to bring along something extra special, consider a summer gift basket that was designed with the season in mind. BisketBaskets.com has created some fantastic summer gift baskets, with our ice cream gift baskets and BBQ gift baskets being especially popular choices. With the change in seasons your clothes change, your mood changes, your activities change, and so forth. So why not mix up your gifts a little as well and embrace summer for all she has to offer! While I don’t dislike winter as much as many people, I do have to admit that I’d rather have a cheeseburger and sundae on the deck than be huddled up in a blanket sipping soup. Which reminds me – I can put away my throw blankets, too!

As we put a very long winter behind us, the toll it took is evident almost everywhere we look. Roads are riddled with potholes, our homes and vehicles have suffered wear-and-tear, and for many of us, our parched skin is begging for some attention. Luckily, there are even more signs that spring has sprung, with beautiful blooms blossoming, the sun shining bright and long, and boots being tucked away in favor of some light and lovely sandals. So what’s a lady to do when the time has come to stow away the sweaters and break out the skirts, shorts and flip flops? Give her skin some serious pampering! And for some of the best products to do just that, look no further than our luxurious Tranquil Bath & Body Spa Gift Basket.

If your skin is craving some TLC, you’ll find everything you need to get your skin ready to be bared inside this basket. Freshen up your skin with sweet pea scented soap and shower gel, and indulge after your bath with a lotion in the same intoxicating scent. As for extra rough bits like elbows? Break out the rich, creamy sweet pea body butter and send sandpaper skin packing! Your feet will surely need some special attention of their own, and the included foot brush, foot soak, and thick foot cream are up to the challenge of softening your soles. All that pampering can be pretty relaxing, and a rejuvenating nap may be in order. That’s when it’s time to slip on the satin eye mask and let the greatest beauty product of all – sleep! – work its own wonders.

Whether you’re treating yourself or someone special, we’re confident you’ll love these and other skin makeover must-haves inside our spa gift basket!

Celebrating the Dog Days of Summer with a Dog Gift Basket!

Summer is here, folks. Well – almost! But compared to the oh-so-cold winter, spring is feeling a lot like summer. And as much as we enjoy these opportunities to relax outdoors, feeling the sun on our faces and the warm winds blow through, if there’s anything I’ve learned watching my own dog and the neighbors’ dogs, it’s that they blow my love of summer out of the water.

To be fair, this is my dog’s first spring. He’s heading toward 9 months old, and hasn’t felt warm weather for most of his young life. As a smaller breed, winter was especially tricky. There was no climbing snow banks or hiking through the woods, though he did do his best to frolic when there was just a dusting. But in these past few warmer weeks, he has experienced the freedom and fun that a sunny backyard has to offer. He can run, jump, roll around, and bound to and fro with wild abandon. And as much as he loves every second of it, he’s falling asleep a lot earlier at night! That’s why I’ve been giving him extra treats to make our relaxing time extra special.

As much fun as my little guy is having, he’s also pretty tuckered out by the time we’re done playing in the yard. Spring and summer definitely offer more opportunity for doggy good times, but when you’re covered in fur they can also be exhausting. I’m taking extra care to be sure my pup is drinking enough, and making coming inside not only something he has to do after a couple hours outside, but also something he wants to do. How to lure in a pup who still wants to play even when he’s clearly ready for some snoozing? With treats, of course! And for the best, most tail wag-worthy treats, browse our dog gift baskets collection.

Not only do super special treats help me encourage my little fella to come inside and relax, but sometimes I give him a few pieces before we go outside as well. Once he gets running around it’s hard to get him to sit, stay, or give paw, so I’ve made it a ritual to work on some light training before heading out. As a puppy, even playtime can be hard work, and a yummy reward for being so good at living life to the fullest makes a doggy’s day even better.

Father’s Day Gift Baskets Every Great Dad Deserves!

comments 0

Whether you’re looking for a great Father’s Day gift for your own dad, your husband, or even a brother or uncle whose proud parenting skills have always impressed you, you’ve likely already discovered that a lot of stores are putting out the same displays. Common gift suggestions for dads include tools, lawn equipment, ties, socks and grill accessories. Even if these things interest your dad, chances are good he’s already received them enough times to not need a new one of any of the above!

Also – most of the above gift ideas aren’t really something special just for him. Even if he’s happy to have a new gardening rake, is that really a gift that lets him know you love him and want to spoil him a bit on his day? We can’t speak for every dad out there, of course. But we do think that quite a few of them would much rather receive one of our Father’s Day gift baskets than a new wrench!

Is your dad a candy fan? Consider one of our many candy bouquets. There’s even a chip bouquet in the mix if he’s more of a salty snack kind of guy. Next time he settles in to watch his favorite show, the news or the game, he’ll really get to dig in! Another popular choice for dads is our Around the World Beer Gift Basket. Filled with your choice of International beers or American IPAs, as well as yummy bar snacks like beer nuts and Virginia peanuts, this gift set is just about guaranteed to be received with a bigger smile than a pair of socks!
