Comments about Givens and Company Cheeseboard Complete Ultimate Gift Set - 7975:
This basket provides a good mix of items that could be put out as appetizers for a group of 2 to 4 people, or might make a nice gift for a small office - lots of items for "grazing" - though portions and boxes are small.
Of course the value in this type of gift basket is the convenience. Really one could probably pick up the basic cheese board and knife set for about $10, and pick out larger-sized versions of most of the rest of the items at the grocery store and create a bigger/better version of this same collection for the same price or less.
The cheese board is a nice plain bamboo "butcher block" style board, with a small bamboo-handled stainless steel knife.
Some of the items I received matched the picture and website description exaclty, and others were a little different. I received:
One 2-ounce jar of spanish manzanilla olives
One 1.75 ounce jar of hot sweet mustard
One 3.5 ounce full-size Girardelli milk chocolate caramel bar (not a mint-chocolate bar plus caramel squares, as pictured)
One 5 ounce beef sauage (not salami as in the description)
One 2 ounce box of three-pepper blend water crackers - these are a little smaller than ritz-cracker sized
One packet of two "Ernest Hemingway" tea bags (these are regular black tea)
One 2 ounce package of smoked almonds
One 3.5 ounce plastic tub of processed cheese spread - monterey jack flavor
One 2 ounce bag of almond/pretzel/sesame sticks bar mix
One 2 ounce bag of bite-size chocolate chip cookies (not biscotti, as in the description)
One packet of three pieces of of cashew roca
The items look more or less as pictured, complete with the green bow. Everything arrived well packaged and padded. The items were all taped together for shipping, so it was next to impossible to untape everything without tearing some of the little boxes and bags - so presentation may suffer a little there, but it's good that it's all securely packaged. All of the items arrived undamaged with minimal broken crackers & cookies.
