I haven’t sent any gift baskets in the past but I have sent a little item from this company called Henry & David for a friend. I know Harry & David makes good quality items. A really good friend sent us a item from there and the food in it was really yummy. They also do gift baskets so I suggest checking them out. I highly recommend them. I posted the link on the bottom in case you can’t find the site. Right now it looks like they are having a 20% sale.

HoneyBee85:  I have used giftbaskets.com, but I also just google gift baskets and there are so many different types. 

We sent a beer gift basket once to my bff’s husband for fathers day and he loved it! And for mother’s day we sent her a spa basket, and one time their dog had an accident so we sent a doggies basekt. THere are so many things!!!

If the recipient lives in a small city or larger (not rural areas) I like to look for local gourmet shops who will do local gift basket deliveries. I think you get a more interesting selection of gifts at a lower price than when shopping with the big chains like Harry and David.  If you post where the recipient lives, some local bees may be able to suggest some local shops!

I’ll also have merchants local to the recipient send small items to me, put them together and ship them in a gift box. My brother lives several states away so this year I called the local breweries and got some pint glasses, a growler (big reusable bottle for draft beer), and some small gift cards, then I added beer coasters from his favorite NFL team, some pickled veggies I made in a nice jar, and a gift card for a cheese shop local to him.  Cost me about as much as a medium basket from a gift basket company but I think he’ll like the selection better.

This might be too late to help you, but for people who don’t live near me, I like to give things that are locally made and unique to my area. For example maple syrup if you live in Vermont or something, or wine from a local vineyard if you live near one. I like to find small local businesses that nobody would know about if they didn’t live here. Also maybe tuck in an ornament or trinket from a local artisan, that captures something unique about where you live. It shares a little bit of your home with them, and it’s something they couldn’t buy for themselves.
