You can never have too many good memories
It's the Thought that Counts
Whether you're shopping for your packrat Grandma, who has never thrown anything away in her life (including empty gallon ice cream buckets), or for your wealthy friend who can buy what he wants whenever he wants it, a gift basket will still satisfy your desire to give and their need to receive. After all, even a person rich in material goods still needs tokens of affection from friends and family to have a full and happy life.
Thanks for the Memories
- A golf-fanatic could always use a basket stocked with balls, tees, practice games, and snacks for the course.
- Choose a movie gift basket overflowing with popcorn and candy for the film buff.
- Give the gift of relaxation with a spa gift basket containing scented soaps, candles, lotions, and oils.
Eat, Drink, and Be Merry
Even the person who has everything will always need to eat and drink. All you have to do is choose a gift basket filled with the recipient's favorite foods and beverages.
- Your oenophile friend will love a cheese and wine gift basket, and foodies can pass judgment on a gourmet selection.
- A java junkie will lap up a coffee basket, while tea drinkers can sip on a collection of gourmet brews.
- Sugar daddies and mommas will go crazy at the sight of a cookie bouquet or chocolate basket.
- Health nuts will happily consume the contents of a snack or fruit basket.
Or, give the person who has everything a taste of everything with a giant assortment basket.
Leave No Trace
Of course, even a food basket can sometimes add to already overflowing kitchen cabinets. If you're shopping for a food hoarder with a pantry stocked for the apocalypse, avoid baskets containing non-perishable food items or cute mugs. Instead, send only perishable items in the form of a fruit basket (she can use the container to store stuff!) or a box of chocolate covered strawberries or caramel apples (in a disposable box). Your gift will leave no trace but a tasty memory.
