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!

Sweet Gift Baskets for Bridesmaids!

Having been a bridesmaid many times in my life, I know firsthand that there is a lot of work and stress going on behind the scenes. Naturally, things are much more hectic for the couple tying the knot, but groomsmen and bridesmaids have their fair share of things to do and keep in mind, too! Add to that their excitement that two of their favorite people are about to be married, and you have the perfect recipe for what I refer to as a ‘snack scenario.’

What exactly is a snack scenario? Simply put, it’s the perfect storm of a situation in which the likely result is greater-than-average snack consumption. It could be a television marathon of your favorite show; it could be that the kiddos haven’t stopped saying your name since they woke up. It could be spending a week on vacation with a best friend; it could be a lot of things!

We all know that we aren’t supposed to eat cookies when we’re stressed or make food the center of every celebration, but knowing it doesn’t necessarily stop us. When things in life get a little too hectic for words, sometimes the only ‘person’ who knows the right thing to say is a candy bar! And sometimes when everything is going right and you’re as happy as can be, you can’t help but treat yourself to an ice cream sundae or large slice of cake.

Stress and celebration are tied to food for many of us, and as long as you don’t overindulge too much everything is usually OK. However, when there’s a formal occasion on the horizon for which you must fit into a gown tailored just for you, there simply isn’t room to go overboard on Oreos! And that is precisely why our bridesmaid gift baskets brimming with delicious delights are such a thoughtful, fun selection. Chances are good that every one of your bridesmaids has had to just say ‘no’ to more than one cupcake in recent weeks and months to be 100% sure her dress fit perfectly on your special day. And while you’ll be waking up the morning after your wedding with your honeymoon on your mind, your bridesmaids will be digging into their flower-shaped cookie bouquet for breakfast! 🙂

Sweet Summer Spa Gift Baskets for Women!

Summer is in full swing, with ‘flip flop weather’ officially carrying into the evening almost every day of the week. Most of us are spending as much time as possible in front of a fan, basking in air conditioning, or appreciating some relaxing, rejuvenating time poolside or lounging on a beach (the lucky ones!) Most of us are also spending less time shopping than we do any other time of year. After all, who wants to climb inside a hot car and take a trek to the mall when the temps are holding steady in the 90s and there’s iced tea begging to be sipped by the water? Not me! And chances are good that it’s not you, either.

So what’s a guy or gal to do when they need an awesome present but don’t want to wander from store to store in the stifling heat, or waste an afternoon that could be enjoyed catching some sun on the deck? Send along one of the awesome summer gift baskets from Bisket Baskets, of course! Let’s look at two seasonal spa selections she’s sure to love…

Watermelon Themed Gift Basket: The ‘summeriest’ of all summer fruits, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who can resist a sweet slice of watermelon. And not only does this fruit taste amazing, but it smells oh-so-fresh as well. Our ‘Sweet Scent of Watermelon’ gift set is as adorable as it is useful, packed with a colorful watermelon dishtowel and watermelon hand soap and lotion, which are tucked inside a chrome plated reusable sink caddy. Great for birthdays, hostess gifts, ‘thank you’ gifts, or just because, this brings all the sweet with none of the seeds!

Tranquil Bath & Body Spa Gift Basket: This indulgent basket truly has it all – everything she’ll need to relax in a much-needed bath at the end of an exhausting summer day! Swimming in the scent of sweet pea, you’ll find shower gel, body lotion, bar soap, body butter and foot cream. And if her tootsies need a little extra pampering all their own, our exhilarating peppermint foot soak will get the job done with the help of the included foot brush – bye-bye rough heels! We round out this lovely lineup with a sumptuously soft satin eye mask and hair towel so she can drift into dreamland peacefully post-pampering.

Send a Little Love with a Back to School Gift Basket!

Whether you’re sending your teen off to college, or your best friend is heading to a university many miles away, the back to school season is filled with even more emotions than overstuffed suitcases! It’s a time of excitement, pride and possibility. It’s a time of growth for you both. But there’s also a sense of loss at not being able to see each other as often, and fears of losing touch or growing apart. Just remember that the person going away to college is feeling all these things and more as well. They’re going to miss you too, and their fears are just as strong. But sometimes going away is the right thing to do, and while keeping in touch will be trickier, there are more ways to do it in this day and age than ever before! Let’s take a look at just a few…

Take advantage of Skype or a similar service. As wonderful as it is to talk to one another on the telephone, being able to see someone’s smile is priceless! A good phone call can warm the heart, but when you can actually see your loved one talking, reacting, and just being themselves, they suddenly don’t seem so far.

Text pictures of your day. You don’t have to send one another a steady stream of photos cataloging every place you go, but try to send one at least every few days. It could be as simple as a picture of a café with the message, “Wish you were here to have a latte with!” You never know when that’s exactly what the other person needed to cheer up or be reminded that you’re on their mind, too.

Send a card. For as amazing as the internet is in helping us stay in touch with each other, a personal, hand-written card is still a wonderful thing to give and receive. Set aside some time to really dedicate your attention to the card – you might be surprised by all the things you think to say when you aren’t distracted!

Send a Back to School Gift Basket. You had to know we’d get here eventually – we love gift baskets! But the thing is, most people do. We aren’t alone in our love! And sending a gift basket to your family member or friend will provide them with a little pampering and a reminder of how much you care. Want to send something they can share with their roommates? Consider one of our candy bouquets or cookie bouquets. Whether or not they actually share is up to them, but it’s at least an option!

Gift Baskets Make a Great Way to Say, “Welcome to Your New Home!”

Did you ever notice that your friends and family members always seem to need help moving on the hottest Saturdays of the summer? So have we! But there is good reason for that. For those of us that live in areas of the country with very cold winters, we have just a few months that are ideal for moving without worry of ice, snow, or the sun setting before we’ve finished emptying the first truck. Typically, the summer presents itself as the best time of all, with its long days and vacation time accumulated. But moving everything we own alone is tricky business, so when we’re moving somewhere nearby, we usually call on family and friends to show some love and share some space in their car!

But what about friends and family that move farther than a few blocks or towns? What about those we love that pack up their possessions and head many miles away to the other side of the state, or a new state altogether? As much as we might grumble about helping those near and dear move, when the last box is unloaded, there’s nothing like sitting down with them in their new place. We’re usually a bit out of breath, and more slumped against the wall than actually sitting, but the joy is in being there together with them during this new chapter. When friends move far away, we miss out on this moment. We miss out on feeling like an important part of their transition – a part that was there before, during and after.

It’s not quite the same as physically being there, but a New Home Gift Basket can help you ‘be there’ as best you can. Whether you choose a basket filled with cookies, candy or champagne, you can be certain your friends will appreciate the warm gesture, and dig right in after a hard day’s work moving! A New Home Gift Basket lets them know you’re with them on their journey wherever it takes them, and they can count on you no matter the miles. It also provides them with something tasty to tide them over until they find the grocery store in their new town or city!

4 Reasons To Gift In The Summertime

comments 0

From the spooktacular costumes of Halloween to the pastel hues of Easter, we get accustomed to enjoying just about one major holiday each month for a few months. Yet, once the grilled delights of Father’s Day pass us by, we’re faced with a summertime that has few “gifting” occasions. We think it’s so much fun to gift the special people in our lives, as each and every time we give a gift, we just seem to receive a gift of smiles on our faces and warmth in our hearts in return. Whether you’d like to say thank you or send a gift “just because”, we have some fun reasons to gift while you’re enjoying those delicious summertime temperatures!

Positive Life Change

Have a person in mind that you’d love to send a gift to? Think about the positive life changes they may have successfully managed this year – perhaps an engagement, wedding, new child, new job, new home, etc. Gift them a toast to their happiness with one of our Wine Gift Baskets, and include a message with your gift congratulating them on their life milestone!

Needs a Perk Up

Many of us need a bit of a “perk up” from time to time. Have a person in your life who’s down in the dumps? Put a smile on his or her face by showing how much you care – send a Blooms Cookie Bouquet that is not only delicious, but looks so wonderful, too!

Say Thank You

There’s so many reasons to say thank you to the people we care about, but the days go by fast and it’s often hard to find the time to appropriately say thank you. Set aside 10 minutes to make a list of the people you’d like to thank for making a positive impact on your life, and choose beautiful Thank You Gift Baskets to send to them. You can include a personal message with each, so be sure to say thank you for being in your life.

Admit You’re Happy Month

August is “Admit You’re Happy Month”, and we think “paying it forward” by sending a gift of happiness is the best way to celebrate “Admit You’re Happy Month.” Perfect gifts to celebrate Admit You’re Happy Month include Floral Bouquets, Candy Bouquets, Cookie Bouquets, and more. After all, sending a slice of happiness will make you happy, too!

Welcome Your Guests With Wedding Gift Baskets For Out Of Town Guests

comments 0

We can’t help but chuckle a bit over the anonymous quote, “Families are like fudge – mostly sweet with a few nuts.” We know you love your family and your friends-who-feel-like-family, and you’re glad you’re inviting them to your wedding. If they live out of town, you want to welcome them in and show how excited you are. Thoughtful gifts, like Wedding Gift Baskets For Out Of Town Guests, welcome them in with style and get your guests even more excited for your wedding and glad they could make the trip! Here’s some great ways to welcome those special out of town guests to your wedding:

Personalized welcome card – Doesn’t it always feel special to receive a hand-written letter or card? Ask the hotel to place a personalized “welcome” card in each of the hotel rooms for your wedding. Simply choose a blank greeting card and fill it with a message welcoming your guests to the wedding, thanking them for making the trip, and showing your excitement for the wedding festivities ahead.

Photo Memories – We love that warm, sentimental feeling we get when we just so happen to come across a photo of the friends and family we love. Look for photos of your out of town guests, and once you find a photo for each guest room, simply tape it to a blank piece of paper and write a thoughtful message, such as “We love you, thank you for sharing in our day!” on each. Then, place in each guest room.

Delicious bottle of wine – Visit a local winery or liquor store and look for small, affordable bottles of wine – perhaps 750 ml bottles at around $10 each, and include one bottle in each of your own of town guest rooms. Tie a ribbon around the stem in your wedding colors to add a personalized touch to your gift of wine.

Wedding Gift BasketsWedding gift baskets for out of town guests are another beautiful way to thank your guests for spending hours in the car or plane to be a part of your magical day. Select a wedding gift basket for each out of town guest room, such as our Ghirardelli Chocolate & Cookie Tower, to give them some so scrumptious sweets and treats to nosh on before your wedding and after all that dancing at your reception!

You’re on the verge of having a spectacular wedding surrounded by the friends and family who mean the world to you. Show your out of town wedding guests just how excited you are for them to be at your wedding with meaningful accents, such as welcome cards and a bottle of wine, as well as wedding gift baskets, in their room. They will be so touched that you thought of them, only adding to the warmth and splendor of your wedding day.
