Welcome Fall with a Decadent Delight: Gourmet Caramel Apples!

comments 0

Just as is surely the case for many of you, fall is my favorite season. I love the ‘jeans and a jacket’ weather, the beauty of nature in evolution, Thanksgiving and Halloween, and so much more. But the one thing that really sets it apart for me is the speed of the season. Yep, you read that correctly, the speed!

In my experience, summer tends to move very quickly. There are lots of places to go, people to see, and things to do. It is fun for sure, but very busy. And winter? Winter is just the opposite; winter moves very slowly. With snow and ice and early sunsets, it sometimes seems as though we’ll never get where we’re going or see the light of day again! But spring and fall? Well, they move just right! Fast enough that you’re definitely doing and seeing, but not so fast that you can’t take it all in and appreciate it. In spring, those things you’re taking in include the blooming flowers and warm breezes. And in fall, those things include long walks and gourmet caramel apples!

Let us explain just a few reasons why our gourmet caramel apples are such a perfect treat for fall, apart from the fact that apples are in season and at their most delicious, of course…

  • You don’t have to fight with the sweltering summer sun to keep your apple from melting!
  • In warm and hot weather, we often crave ‘lighter’ treats, like ice pops and melon slices. But in the fall and winter, our appetites for richer snacks are awakened, and our taste buds jump for joy over chocolates, caramels, pies and the like. These snacks might be too heavy in the heat, but they’re fall fabulous!
  • Enjoying gourmet caramel apples forces us to slow down a bit from our summer sprint. Unlike a handful of berries we might grab on the way out the door, one must sit down to savor a caramel apple! You’ll probably want to snap a picture of it to share on Facebook, making all your friends jealous in the process. And slowly slice it into pieces of apple perfection, letting each melt in your mouth. You may even want to call a friend you’ve been trying to catch up with for weeks and invite them over to share in your caramel apple over some coffee and chitchat. But if you decide not to call them until after you’ve finished the apple, we won’t tell. Just don’t forget to throw away the wrapper! ;)

Go Luxurious with Wonderful Wine Gift Baskets

There are many times in our lives when keeping within a tight budget is important. It might be a weekly thing, such as keeping a close eye out for sales when making the grocery shopping list, or it can be most apparent when shopping for a big ticket item like a car or home. It can also be a daily thing, where we either consciously or unconsciously do a quick analysis of each purchase to determine whether it is worth the price, and/or how prepared we are to spend that much money. Budgeting is simply part of life; it’s not usually painful, but it’s also not exactly fun.

Spending money, however? That can be very fun! And it’s usually more fun when you have more to work with. It’s also usually more fun when that ‘more to work with’ isn’t all coming from your bank account!

Now, don’t get ahead of us. We aren’t suggesting you rob anyone! But we are suggesting that we have some of the most lovely, luxurious wine gift baskets available, perfect for giving as a group gift. Whether it’s a wedding gift for a close friend, or a present for your boss, pulling your money together with others lets you all give the great gift you want to give, but can’t budget for alone.

Wine & Gourmet Extravagance Wine Gift Basket: Love the Unparalleled Luxury Wine Gift Basket, but need something a bit smaller and more affordable? You can still show your appreciation and impress the recipient with a more petite price tag! Red wine and chocolates are the stars of this gorgeous gift, with cheese, crackers, almonds and cookies earning their fair of fans as well. Wonderful for a wedding or housewarming, brilliant for a birthday or your boss, this stylish basket is sure to cause a sensation and leave them thinking you spent much more!

Plan a Spa Day For Mom This Mother’s Day!

comments 0

Oh, there’s just something so tranquil and wonderful about going to the spa. It’s a great way to unwind – the soothing music, calming spa services, and that beautifully soft bathrobe that is just so cozy! Planning an at-home spa day for Mom this Mother’s Day will be a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of family life, and will show her how much you care about her. Here’s our tips for a spa day worthy of the finest spas!

Cozy Bathrobe + Slippers

One of the key elements to unwinding is feeling comfortable. Visit a local department store and choose a so-soft bathrobe and slippers. Wake her up and gift her with both of these in a beautifully wrapped box, along with a card explaining the suite of spa services at her fingertips for the day.

Mother’s Day Gift Baskets

In addition to gifting her with a plush bathrobe and slippers, gift her with a Mother’s Day gift basket when she wakes up on Mother’s Day! Choose delights including our Amazing Daisies Floral Bouquet to brighten her smile, and our Tranquil Spa Mother’s Day Gift Basket to get her so excited for her at-home spa day.

Set The Scene

Next, dim the lights slightly and play soft, soothing music, just like you would relax to at a spa. Decide on the spa services she’ll be partaking in – simple but so welcome services include a relaxing bubble bath, pedicure, manicure, facial, and massage. Visit a spa or beauty store in your area to purchase an at-home facial kit for Mom to do herself. For a pedicure and manicure, gift Mom with all the essentials and several nail colors, and if there’s any daughters in the house, ask them to give Mom the manicure and pedicure. Ask Dad to give Mom a massage, and voila! A wonderful spa day is planned for Mom to unwind and relax to. Just be sure there is a spa “host” to take her “to and fro” each service!

Top It Off

The best way to end a spa day? With a sip of California wine from our California Wine Experience Mother’s Day Gift Basket, and a bite to eat – think grilled salmon, steak, or a delicious chicken dish, with a side of brown rice and asparagus.

Are you planning a spa day for Mom? What kind of spa “services” are you including in the day?

Let’s take a gander at some of our most popular meal gift baskets so far – but be sure to check back soon, as we’re always adding more!

Grandma’s Pantry Meal Gift Basket – Grandma always seems to have a little of everything in her pantry, doesn’t she? This is a robust gift basket that’s perfect for a big family, or a hungry one! It starts out with mozzarella cheese bars and baked potato soup, and transcends into an evening of angel hair pasta and gourmet sauce, a make your own pizza kit for eight slices, lemon bars, blueberry muffin mix, hand decorated cookies, and Irish crème coffee! We think that’s enough food for dinner for even two nights!

Gourmet Soup Gift Baskets Ease Those Achoos Away!

It’s that time of year again. You’re planning out your Thanksgiving menu, whipping up those deliciously cheesy mashed potatoes, fluffing up the pillows in your guest bedroom, and…battling a case of the sniffles. First – Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at BisketBaskets.com! We’re so thankful to be in business for over 11 years strong, and we owe it all to our wonderful fans!

Now let’s get to the cold part. It’s never fun to have a cold, especially during the holidays. We’re based in Parker, Colorado, so we know a thing or two about how the cold, and stress of the holidays, can wreak havoc on your body. Here’s our BisketBaskets.com approved tips on fighting off that cold!

Vitamin C is Key: Vitamin C is important year round, but especially when you have a cold. Most people can only absorb about 250 to 500 mg a day, so be sure you’re taking adequate doses of Vitamin C when you’re sick, and continuing to throughout the year.

Sleep On It: Let’s face it, you’re busy trying to do all you possibly can during the holidays, resulting in less sleep than usual. You can’t turn back time when you’re sick, but you can rest and get some sleep now that you are sick. Do your best to always get about seven hours of sleep each night, and more when you have a cold.

Soothing Soups: Can chicken soup cure the common cold? Not exactly, but it sure can make you feel a lot better. Send a smile to a cold-stricken special someone in your life by surprising them with a Gourmet Soup Gift Basket, like our Comfort Soups Gift Basket, Country Christmas Soup Gift Basket, and our Soups On! Gift Basket. Soup gift baskets just seem to have that special dash of joy and happiness, just what you need when faced with a runny nose!

Call In Sick: Sure, calling in sick is a lot more fun when you’re not actually sick, but it’s important to dedicate yourself to getting better when you’re sick. By staying home from work, you’re decreasing the length of your cold, and also keeping your co-workers from getting sick. We give you full permission to spend the entire day on the couch watching talk shows and soap operas!

We hope you have a healthy holiday season free of colds, but if you do start coughing, you know just what to do! Consider Soup Gift Baskets your ticket to battling the achoos!

Send Your Wedding Wishes

comments 0

Wedding season is still in full swing and as we approach August, more and more wedding guests are starting to scramble to find the perfect gift. As you skim through catalogs and shop through stores, remember that you can always ask the special couple about a registry, which could really help you along in your search for the right gift. Most couples tend to register at various department stores so that wedding guests can avoid duplicating gifts, so be sure to ask around before you start to scramble. Who knows? Maybe you’ll be able to check off that wedding gift in just a few minutes by logging on and checking the online registry!

Wedding Wishes Cookie Bouquet

However, if you want to go beyond the registry and give the bride and groom something they can really enjoy, be sure to check out the Wedding Wishes Cookie Bouquet from BisketBaskets.com. This gorgeous and totally edible wedding gift features a stunning display of individually wrapped butter crème cookies that are hand decorated by our icing artists. As a special touch, you can also include a custom cookie message that wishes the bride and groom well. Trust us- they’ll just love this yummy and delectable treat!

Why Send Flowers, When You Can Send A Bouquet of Cookies?

You’ll be presenting your sweetheart with a deliciously sweet gift that looks breathtaking, too. We create each cookie by hand, ensuring it’s designed to look like a perfect red rose, and is about 3-5 inches in height (quite the cookie!).

Care for a Spot of Tea?

comments 0

Teatime can be a great way to relax on the coldest of winter days. Besides being a ritual that invokes feelings of serenity, teatime possesses a culture all its own. Whether you prefer it to be social or personal, teatime can be just the thing you need to escape the winter doldrums.

Hosting teatime is easier than ever when you plan ahead. Start out by making cute invitations, then send them out to 5 to 7 of your closest friends. The more intimate you keep your group, the easier it’ll be to prepare snacks for.

Next, it’s time to plan the menu. Try looking at tea magazines or by visiting tearooms to get a glimpse of the type of fare that is typically served. Light sandwiches, salads, or soups are usually the norm, and of course there are always scones! Make sure you have plenty of scones or biscuits on hand for your tea party. In addition, remember to stock up on creams, butters, preserves, and other accoutrements. Finally, select your tea. Try to choose one that everyone in your party will like. Unsure? Try the staple: English Breakfast.

Now it’s time to host it! Decorate your dining area with delicate fabrics, colorful china, or even play dress up with feather boas and festive hats! This fun approach to tea time can make anyone feel young again!

Wishing to send some cheer to a faraway friend? BisketBaskets.com offers fantastic Tea Gift Baskets that you can send to someone who is feeling the drain of Jack Frost, but can’t take part in your tea time. Filled with cheer and delicious treats, this basket is ideal for sending a smile to those far away.
