    I would probably go to a market and source it all home/hand made.

    But if thre was something specific that I knew the person loved then I would get it whether it was at the supermarket or from a specialty store. I think the important thing is that it is full of things that the person recieving it would like as opposed to what you would like.

    I would only go with specialty/upmarket brands and product you don’t see everyday. Otherwise, what’s the point?

    @AB Bride:  lol I would probably have held my tongue but sent them a basket full of items full of foods high in gluten every year on their anniversary.

    I put together a Christmas food hamper for my Fmil and we put in food that were from local food markets, homemade and organic.

    I wouldn’t get super cheap stuff but I also don’t think it has to be all expensive specialty things if the basket has been well put-together and thought out.  A mixture is good, IMO.
