comments 0

We’re no stranger to gorgeous, plentiful gift baskets here at, and we’re especially excited to announce one of the newest holiday food gift baskets to our lineup: our Grandma’s Pantry Gift Basket! We all want our holiday gifts to be creative and beautiful, but we want them to be practical, too. Our Grandma’s Pantry Gift Basket includes the ingredients for at least two dinners, along with an appetizer and several dessert treats, making it not only so exquisite to look at, but useful, as we can all benefit from the gift of food!

Some of the practical delights in our Grandma’s Pantry Gift Basket include:

  • Rich, scrumptious Baked Potato Soup for 6
  • Make-your-mouth-water Mozzarella Cheese Bars for 2
  • Rainbow Angel Hair Pasta with a heartwarming Olive Oil sauce for 6
  • Pizza Kit to bring the taste of delivery home for 8
  • Gourmet Marinara sauce blend to add a bit of Italy to your home
  • 16 perfectly baked Lemon Bars
  • Two Fruit Preserves flavors absolutely bursting with flavor
  • Two large Hand Decorated Cookies, in flavors including honey vanilla, vanilla sugar, and lemon sugar
  • Blueberry Muffin Mix to quickly and easily whip up 12 muffins
  • Carolans Finest Irish Crème Coffee to top off an amazing evening of food and laughter!

We’ll be continuing to add more Holiday Food Gift Baskets to our collection, so be sure to check back often. Some of our customer food gift basket favorites continue to be:

  • Soups On! Gift Basket – This holiday food gift basket includes the always delectable Roasted Corn Chowder Soup, along with snack delights to serve alongside your soup: Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese, Bremner Cracked Wheat Crackers, and a seasonal-themed drink selection to wash that lunch down!
  • Ghirardelli Chocolate Care Package – Does someone on your gift list consider chocolate to be a food group? We know we do! Our Ghirardelli care package includes Ghirardelli chocolate brownie mix, two Ghirardelli coffees, two full size Ghirardelli chocolate bars (yum!), and two Ghirardelli chocolates. I think I’ve fallen in love!
  • First Class Gift Basket – Our First Class Holiday Food Gift Basket is jam-packed with tons of snacks to keep your stomach happy! It includes delights like Dolcetto Chocolate Pastry, Smoked Salmon, two Biscotti, Cheddar Cheese Premier Spread, Bremner Cracked Wheat Wafer Crackers, two wafer cookies, and several teas. Who needs to whip up hor d’ oeuvres when they come all ready for you in a beautiful gift basket?

We think all of our gourmet gift baskets make for perfect holiday gifts, but when you want to give the gift of food, think Holiday Food Gift Baskets, like the appetizer, dinners, and desserts inside our Grandma’s Pantry Gift Basket. After all, who doesn’t love to eat, and deliciously at that? Bon appétit!

Think Outside The Treat Bag: Unique Halloween Gifts

comments 0

Hasn’t the summer just flown by? Halloween will be here in the blink of a witch’s broom, but we can’t say we mind! Fall is a beautiful time of year, full of unique colors and refreshing Autumn scents. We’ve all filled our treat bags with heaps of candy on Halloween nights over the years, but isn’t it nice once in awhile to change it up and give a gift that has a bit more meaning – and substance – to it? We think so too, and that’s why we’ve dreamed up our Halloween Gift Baskets and Halloween Pet Gift Baskets, along with some additional creative Halloween gift ideas for you and yours!

  • Halloween Earrings: Have a fashionista in your midst? Look for cute Halloween-themed earrings in the shape of pumpkins, ghosts, and spooky cats. Wrap them in orange or black tissue paper, and give this spooktacular unique Halloween gift to your stylish friend or family member!
  • Halloween Crafts: Candy is certainly delicious, but crafts can be used Halloween after Halloween! Do a quick Google search for “Halloween crafts” and look for simple, low-cost Halloween-themed crafts, such as a candy corn wreath. Spend an afternoon crafting, and surprise your friends and family members with cute Halloween craft gifts!
  • Halloween Gift Baskets: Halloween gift baskets combine the best of both Halloween worlds: candy and gifts! Our Halloween gift baskets are beautifully arranged to delight all the ghouls and ghosts this Halloween, and are filled with delightful treats and Halloween-themed gift boxes and totes. You’ll discover your favorite Halloween candies inside, like Butterfingers, Kit Kats, Snickers, Reese’s, and more! Fido and Miss Kitty can’t exactly enjoy chocolate this Halloween, but they can enjoy the healthy pet treats inside our Halloween pet gift baskets – woof!
  • Orange Cake Pops: Cake Pops are the popular dessert these days, so add a Halloween twist to them to surprise your family and friends with! Search for a recipe online, and make them with orange icing, and roll in Halloween-themed sprinkles. We know they’ll be sinfully delicious!
  • Jack O’ Lanterns: Carving a pumpkin is fun, but oh, does it take work and create a mess! If you have a few hours to spare, get your family together to safely carve a few pumpkins for family members who simply don’t have the time to carve a Jack O’ Lantern or can’t this year, such as elderly grandparents or a new Mom and Dad. Stick a battery operated flameless candle inside, and drop it off to them. They’ll be so happy you took the time to help them share in a Halloween tradition this year!

Halloween is one fun holiday, and has only become more popular over recent years. Think outside the treat bag this year and spread the Halloween spirit by gifting your friends and family with eclectic Halloween gifts, from Halloween earrings to Halloween Gift Baskets! Feel free to add in a heaping dash of your own creativity, and start conjuring up your favorite Halloween gifts to give.
