'Tis the season for gift giving. But what happens if you're stuck shopping for the person who has it all this Christmas? Save yourself the hassle of battling the crowds at the mall and opt instead to send a Christmas gift basket. Gift baskets can be perfectly tailored to any individual's interests and tastes, so not only do you get to skip the holiday shopping stress, the recipient doesn't have to worry about faking it … or re-gifting.
You want to be tearing into the presents under the tree, not slaving away in the kitchen. A gift basket of fresh fruit or other morning treats like muffins offers a way to make it through the marathon of present opening. Another great idea for Christmas morning is a coffee gift basket, chockfull of caffeine and a guaranteed perfect gift for Mom and Dad, who likely need a little more motivation to get up with the sun.
Gourmet Gift Baskets
Gourmet baskets are perfect for the culinary critic on your list, and they often come with an assortment of goodies, so the gift recipient can enjoy a taste of everything. For the sweet tooth on your list, check out gourmet chocolate and candy gift baskets. If you're shopping for a crowd, a group-sized Christmas gift basket full of both sweet and savory treats satisfies any palette.
Party Gift Baskets/Sampler Gift Baskets
Holiday parties abound when Christmas rolls around, and figuring out what to take to each one can be as stressful as making sure the kids are in bed before Santa comes calling. Sampler gift baskets of nuts, snacks, chocolate, and other treats make great hostess gifts, and as an added bonus, you might even get a sample yourself.
Wine & Beer Gift Baskets
Help someone toast the holiday season and ring in the New Year by sending a wine gift basket. A festive gift basket filled with fine wines, and a selection of gourmet cheeses makes a great gift for friends, family, or coworkers. If you're shopping strictly for the man in your life, a Christmas gift basket filled with beer and munchies makes the perfect addition to New Year's Day football games.
