Memorable Gift Basket

To keep a fruit gift basket from being generic, make sure to add a personal touch.  A little extra thought goes a long way toward making an unforgettable gift. Consider the person's favorite foods or meaningful treats in their life. 

  • Dietary Specials: Friends and family with diabetes or a gluten allergy will appreciate sugar- and gluten-free treats. The receiver will appreciate the thoughtfulness behind these goodies.
  • Local Favorites: Local specialties add fun twist and a personal touch to a gift basket. A local food might be the perfect antidote for a homesick friend or favorite childhood treat might bring a smile to their face.
  • Family Recipes: Share your special recipes with family and friends. Include recipes that highlight the same fruit and food in the gift fruit basket.

Gift Basket Extras

Complete an edible fruit basket with a corresponding item for a memorable gift. Include a non-perishable item that will fit well with the theme of the gift basket.

  • Kitchen Products: Supplement great fruit and food products with some new kitchenware. Consider adding a cute cutting board, cozy mug, or a new fancy cooking utensil.
  • Recipe Ideas: Cookbook or magazine subscription are the perfect top-off to edible fruit baskets.
  • Fruit products: Complement your fruit selections with some fun fruit snacks, such as dried fruit, jams, jellies, or fruit candies.
