Staff on November 17, 2011 0 Comments I am very pleased to say that LivingDirect.com now offers a whole slew of gourmet gift baskets featuring all sorts of themes. Gift baskets make great gifts for the holidays because it’s easy to find the perfect one for anyone on your list, they combine an assortment of items that the receiver is sure to enjoy and actually use, and they arrive already all wrapped up. Holiday shopping doesn’t get much better, or easier, than that! To celebrate the launch of our new gift baskets (and show you that they really do come in all shapes, sizes and themes), I’ve compiled the following list of my favorite/the most unique gift baskets that we offer. (I’d also like to add that one of the best elements of any gift basket is the very unique name assigned to it, so I hope you enjoy these choices as much I enjoyed picking them.) 7 Unique Gourmet Gift Baskets 1. Frosty’s Winter Wonder Care Package There really isn’t a better name for the image of this wintery-themed gift basket. The care package itself is decorated with plenty of snowflakes and snowmen, and even comes with a miniature Frosty stuffed toy. I imagine this gift basket would be greatly appreciated by any college student in the midst of studying for their exams – however, that might be said for almost any of these – or by someone who loves winter wonderlands. This Frosty Care Package also includes, but is not limited to, cookies, jelly beans and two different types of hot chocolate. 2. Junk Food Junkie Gift Box Honestly, the face on the box scares me a little, but it’s probably the exact same face I would make if I received this gift basket in the mail. There’s something about a box full of candy that turns adults into giddy little kids. I’m not sure there’s anyone that wouldn’t enjoy this gift box. It comes with a large variety of different sweets and snacks, including M&Ms, Skittles, Reese’s, Chex Mix, Frito’s chips, cookies and even popcorn! They definitely aren’t kidding when they say junk food, but the holidays are the best time to indulge yourself a little. 3. And the Race is On NASCAR Lovers Gift Chest Now that is a mouthful of a name for a gift basket, but it certainly captures the theme well. I’m not quite sure what some of the items in this gift chest have to do with NASCAR, but I doubt any NASCAR lover would complain about receiving them. This gourmet gift basket includes NASCAR-themed pistachios (please, someone buy this and let me know how that works), a cooler cup, racing-themed candies, cheese and crackers, a snack mix, NASCAR note cards with envelopes, a NASCAR hat and a book on stock car racing. The best part of the package though might be that it’s not actually a gift basket, but a 10 pack cooler that all of these great items arrive in. 4. Mickey’s Fun House Gift Bag This gift basket just proves my point that you can find a gift basket for anyone on your list, including even little kids. Though I do suppose this Mickey Mouse gift bag would make a great gift for a Disney-loving adult too. Mickey’s Fun House Gift Bag is great for keeping kids entertained on days when they are stuck in doors because of bad weather or they’re sick. It comes with a Mickey coloring book and crayons, a Mickey puzzle, a Mickey paint set with 2 canvas boards, bubbles, candy, cookies and play-dough. This bag would make a great holiday gift or a wonderful get well soon package. 5. A Sincere Thank You Gift Box If you wish to express gratitude to someone in your life, then this gift box is the best way to do so. Just make sure that your thankfulness is genuine, because, as the name says, this gift basket is for sincere thank yous only. A Sincere Thank You gift basket includes chocolate-covered pretzels, truffles, chocolate peanuts, coffee, snack mix, mixed nuts, more pretzels (also, possibly chocolate-covered), caramel corn and flatbread crisps – All the ways someone knows that you really are thankful for their help. 6. Bullseye Treats Dart Board This might be the most interestingly packaged “gift basket” on the list, possibly our site. In fact, I had to double check with my coworkers that this was even on the right page! At first glance it looks like an actual dart board. The Bullseye Treats Dart Board would make a great gift for a guy that can’t get enough of the bar. It comes with 6 assorted cheeses for pairing with beer, which might not be as impressive as some of these other gift baskets, but the dart board can actually be used for games! A package of 6 darts is included. 7. Picnic for Two Hamper The Picnic for Two Hamper is a brilliant gift idea for any couples (newlyweds maybe?) or people who love the outdoors on your list. It not only comes with delicious food already packed, but it also includes two place settings ready to go! The food items in this picnic gift basket include fruit slices, cheese, cookies, sausage, salami, chips and salsa, crackers, snack mix (seems to be a gift basket staple), mustard, caramels and pretzels. The only thing not included is the blanket. There are definitely more interesting gift baskets on our site that you should check out. Leave a comment and let me know which one is your favorite!
