Easter Gift Basket Bouquets: Chocolate Gets Us All Hippity Hoppity Happy!

comments 0

Have we told you lately how much we love chocolate? We try not to say it too often, as it’s pretty much a universal love. Apart from eating chocolate alone, people find all manner of ways to incorporate it into their everyday lives. There’s chocolate flavored ice cream, chocolate milk, hot chocolate, chocolate cakes and pies, chocolate syrup, and chocolate dipped fruits. There are of course millions of other chocolate creations, but you get the drift!

Chocolate is a decadent, divine, delicious thing, and most people melt at the mere mention of the word when offered a piece. So in this post we’ll be highlighting some of our chocolatiest Easter gift baskets, perfect for sending some of the sweetest stuff on Earth to someone special on your list…

Reese’s Easter Candy Bouquet – Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, Candy is Better, Don’t You Think So, Too? Because we do! And to say this Reese’s gift brings on the peanut butter and chocolate in spades is an understatement. Artfully arranged to replicate a flower bouquet, this candy bouquet is made up of sweet stems of treats. Available in 3 sizes, it’s easy to find the one that best fits your budget or the recipient’s appetite.

Easter Candy Bouquet Assortment – Does your favorite chocolate lover also count non-chocolate candies as a must-have? This charming and colorful variety bouquet certainly serves up some chocolate, but also works other Fun Size treats into the mix. Candies might include Butterfinger Eggs, Starburst, Skittles, M&M’s Minis, and more.

Extreme Reese’s and M&M’s Easter Basket – Can’t decide if you want to send M&M’s or Reese’s? With this basket, there’s no wrong answer! Bursting with plenty of both, to include both full size and fun size packs, this Easter basket is perfect for the chocolate lover who likes to mix things up. Like all our basket bouquets, this style is designed to look great from the front and the back. It also tastes great from every angle!

This Valentine’s Day is for Secret Singles!

When the Christmas season rolls around, one of the events I get most excited about is ‘Secret Santa’ at work. If you aren’t familiar with Secret Santa, which is similar to a white elephant gift exchange without the swapping, the rules are simple. Everyone who wishes to join in the fun puts their name in a bucket or basket. Once everyone’s name is in, everyone draws a name and buys a present for that person. Of course, if you get your own name you choose again. Then, at an agreed upon day and time, all gather together to exchange gifts. Sometimes people will opt to say who bought what before the gifts are opened, but often it is more exciting to put the person’s name on the present and not let anyone know who bought what until the exchange is over. In short, it’s great fun for all, and the perfect excuse to order a few pizzas!

So what does all this have to do with Valentine’s Day, you’re likely wondering? Thinking about how much fun Secret Santa is got me thinking of a similar concept for February 14th. Most often regarded as a holiday for couples, Valentine’s Day can leave singles feeling a bit lonely. Even if you aren’t really upset about not having a special someone on Valentine’s Day, it’s easy to feel a bit down when it seems everyone else is receiving Valentine’s gift baskets, Valentine’s flower bouquets, boxes of chocolates, or even a new puppy or kitten! But I have an idea that should help make Valentine’s Day more fun for singles. And it’s similar to Secret Santa.

Without further ado I present… Secret Singles! The rules are simple. Send an invite to your single friends and/or coworkers and see if they’d be interested in picking their secret Valentine’s name from a basket. Since it’s just a friendly thing, it doesn’t even have to matter if the person they choose is male or female. Just like they would for Secret Santa, they’ll buy a special Valentine’s Day treat for their Secret Single, knowing someone is buying one for them as well. Some of our favorite ideas from Bisket Baskets would be the Red Hot Valentine Care Package, Cupid’s Delight Gift Tower, and Be My Tweet Heart Cookie Bouquet. All are packed with goodies, less than $40, and not overly romantic.

What do you all think? Is Secret Singles something you’d be interested in trying?

Valentine’s Day Gift Baskets: A Perfect Pick for Parents!

comments 0

Once upon a time, perhaps many moons ago, there were two people who caught each other’s eye and stole each other’s heart. They did that very thing that feels better than any other thing in the world. Yes, they fell in love! And as their good fortune would have it, in time they had a baby, and that baby grew up to be the best son or daughter they could ever have hoped for. In case you haven’t figured it out, that baby is you!

This year, why not take a moment to celebrate the love that truly started it all for you – the love of your parents! There are so many unique ways to honor their relationship, whether you are lucky enough to still have both of them here on Earth, or you’re lucky enough to have one of them. Here are a few ideas for making Valentine’s Day a special day for one or two of the most special people in your life. And if you have ideas of your own, we hope you’ll share in the comments!

Create a Photo Album: One of the most heartwarming (and oh-so-affordable!) gifts you can give is a photo album. Truly a collection of marvelous memories, photo albums allow us to relive our favorite times again and again, often sparking conversation that carries on for hours, full of laughs, smiles, and perhaps a few tears here and there. For a Valentine’s Day photo album, keep the focus on love. Add the earliest pictures you can find of your parents together, and don’t forget to include pictures of you and your siblings as well. You can opt for a digital album, or compile old pictures that may just be sitting in boxes into a traditional album. You can also have the album (photo book) printed by one of many companies, such as Shutterfly.com.

Plan a Romantic Getaway for Them: While weeklong vacations can be very expensive, with a little digging around online it’s easy to find one or two-night getaways for a very reasonable price, many within a couple hour’s driving distance. There are many good sites to check out, including some that may be local to you or your parents, but a good place to start is LivingSocial.com. Simply can’t squeeze it into your budget? These sites also post great deals for fun activities and restaurants your parents might want to try, with most costing just 50% of their value.

Send them a Valentine’s Day Gift Basket: You didn’t think we’d forget our favorite gift of all, did you? We could never! We have dozens of delightful Valentine’s Day baskets to choose from, including cookie bouquets, candy gift baskets, baskets with chocolates and teddy bears, and traditional flower bouquets.

Christmas Gifts for Dogs and Their People!

If you’re a dog lover yourself – like me! – you already know that a gift for your precious pooch is just as much a gift for you. Just as our dogs love to see us smile, their tail wags have a direct line to our own heartstrings. Whether you’re shopping for a dog Christmas gift for your own barking best friend, or for another dog lover on your list, we’ve got some definite wag-worthy gift baskets for dogs (and their pet parents!) to consider…

Best Buddies Dog Lover Gift Basket – Our most popular pet lover holiday gift basket with good reason! This attractive treat is packed with plenty of goodness for dogs and their owners. While humans can happily snack away on butter toffee cashews, a hand decorated cookie, Colorado Kernels caramel corn and more, their best bud will be too busy to beg for a bite as they’ll be oh-so-preoccupied with Barkaroo Bakery gourmet dog biscuits and hand iced biscuits. Nothing but the best! The high quality basket makes a perfect place to stow away dog treats on the counter year-round, keeping them at your fingertips but out of paws’ reach.

Pizza Pals Dog Lover Gift Basket – I can’t say with certainty that everyone who loves dogs also loves pizza, but I can say I certainly do! And every time I come home with a piping hot pizza pie, my dog just about loses her mind in anticipation of sneaking a bite. Our Pizza Pals set makes a perfect Christmas gift basket for dog lovers for a few reasons, not the least of which is that the contents are red and green. But that’s not the most important part, of course – flavor is more important than color, and this delivers! Inside each you’ll find a pizza kit that includes crust and sauce, as well as adorable pizza shaped dog biscuits. After a long day at work or shopping, pet owners are sure to appreciate having this easy kit at hand to whip up a quick dinner. And while they’re savoring every slice, their favorite furry friend will be at their feet enjoying hand iced pizza treats of their own. There aren’t too many things better in life than relaxing with yummy pizza and a happy dog!

The holiday season brings with it many wonderful things: spending more quality time with family and friends, that first white blanket of snow on a frosty morning, more cups of cocoa than you can count, and some of the most memorable, feel-good songs you can imagine. But it also brings with it some very stretched purse strings! There are snow tires to buy, winter coats to have dry cleaned, heating bills to be paid, and of course, presents to buy.

As our Christmas shopping lists only seem to grow with each passing year, and our desire to share in the spirit of giving with loved ones grows along with them, for many of us the time has come for a change in the way we shop. There are many ways to help keep your holiday shopping budget in check, and here we’ll be offering up one of our favorites – Christmas Gift Baskets for Families!

Many of the Christmas gift baskets at BisketBaskets.com were designed with families in mind. These presents are packed full of indulgences everyone can enjoy, from your best friend to her husband and their kiddos. Rather than buying separate gifts for everyone on your list, opting for a group gift whenever possible can help you give something truly useful and attractive while still being able to keep the heat on in your house! You can also choose to give the gifts with someone else or several people. If you and others will be buying a Christmas gift for the same person and you know they’re looking to keep costs down this year as well, invite them over for coffee and browse our Christmas gift baskets for families together. Not only will you get some quality time in, but you’ll get some names crossed off your shopping list without ever having to leave the house!

Looking for the best place to start? Consider our meal gift baskets, packed with all the necessary ingredients for a memorable breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacking session. Gifting a couple who enjoys a glass of wine from time to time? Our wine gifts start at just $24.99! Know a family who would much rather spoil their precious pet for the holidays than themselves? Our Christmas gifts for dogs and Christmas gifts for pet lovers selection offers options that are sure to earn two paws up! If it’s sweet treats you’re after, you’ll also find plenty of cookie and candy gifts in our Christmas gift baskets collection.

We hope you’ll find that saving money with a family or group gift is the right choice for you to spread just as much holiday cheer as ever without sacrificing an ounce of seasonal spirit. After all – Christmas bells are always better than Christmas bills!

Halloween Gift Baskets for Grown-Up Kids!

While the tradition of trick-or-treating involves going door to door in search of sweets, sending a Halloween gift basket flips that upside down, bringing the goodness right to someone special, no costume required!

Halloween is very near and dear to me, and I know that I am far from alone in my love for this holiday. Not only is Halloween during my favorite time of year, but some of my fondest childhood memories were established on and around this holiday. I remember the excitement of visiting Evelyn’s house – a friend of my mother’s who created some of the most adorable costumes you’ve ever seen. Not content to send me on my hunt for Reese’s Cups and Skittles in a store-bought costume, but also not being a seamstress herself, my mother purchased couture costumes from Evelyn that I wish I still had today. It’s not every lady who remembers her measurements being taken head to toe for a velour lion costume, but I do!

I remember a lot of other things, too. I remember how fun the parades were at school; I remember the sound my safety glow stick made when I cracked it immediately before heading out into the dark. I remember the neighbor who was always away on business during Halloween, but left a giant bowl of candy on the porch with a note – they were sorry they couldn’t be home, but please take a few pieces and have a Happy Halloween. I remember how excited my grandmother was to see us all in our costumes, and I remember the thrill of rounding a corner to see oh-so-many porch lights lit ahead of me. And, of course, I remember the candy.

The fun of dressing up for Halloween has never dwindled. It’s been more years than I care to count since it was socially acceptable for me to wear a costume and hit the trick-or-treating trail myself, but I swear on Peanut M&M’s that if it weren’t strange, I would! I miss the thrill of approaching a house with a scarecrow on the porch, wondering with every slow step if it was someone dressed up to scare us. I miss the over-the-top decorations that many of my neighbors had, and the eerie music they played. I miss the last house I stopped at Halloween night being my own, trudging tiredly up the stairs, exhausted from all the singing and candy carrying. I miss plopping down on the living room floor and dumping my treat bag onto the carpet, separating the candy from the money and telling my parents all about everywhere I’d been. But you know what? I get to remember it forever. Even if it takes a box of Mike and Ike to get the memories flowing!

Chances are good that someone special to you finds Halloween more nostalgic than scary, more fun than frightful. This year, send them a Halloween gift basket to help them relive the excitement that can only be brought on by having more candy than you can possibly eat in one night. Give them the sugary fuel to dust off their own memories, and be sure to reminisce right along with them! They might be a few years too old to go trick-or-treating, but thankfully, there’s no age limit at all on Halloween gift baskets.

A Gift Basket for Yourself? Why Not!

Most of us have at some point experienced the conundrum of trying to stay focused on shopping for a gift and instead finding something we wanted for ourselves. I know it happens to me several times every year when I’m out Christmas shopping, and I always feel guilty coming home with presents for me! But hey – it’s only natural to find things we personally like when we’re browsing several sites or shopping in several stores. And if we happen to pick up something small here and there, chances are good we deserve it.

Despite my coming to terms with the fact that when I shop for friends’ and family members’ gifts I am likely to treat myself to something as well, I had never really considered buying myself a gift basket. Being surrounded by gift baskets every day, you might think we take home our favorites all the time, but we don’t! We do send our favorites as gifts fairly often, but I had never gifted myself with one. Until last Halloween, that is.

As I was going on and on about the cuteness of a Halloween cookie bouquet for what must have been the tenth time that week, a coworker simply asked, “Why don’t you get one for yourself?” It was a simple enough question, but it caught me off-guard. A gift basket for myself, I thought? It seemed so indulgent somehow! But the more cookie bouquets I put together that season, the more that particular one appealed to me. I loved it, and I wanted one of my own. So – I did it! I got myself a Halloween cookie bouquet. And I set it on my kitchen counter, and I admired it, and I ate it. And I can’t wait to do it again this year!

If you want something bad enough, sometimes you just have to go out and get it for yourself, whether it’s a degree, a new job, or a gift basket! I hope you’ll consider treating yourself to one of your favorites as well. It feels pretty great to get exactly what you wanted from someone special. :)
