Sometimes you need a holiday gift for someone on the other side of the country
(or out of the country).
You want something wonderful, but your don't want to send the same old cheese and sausage basket, right?
Gourmet Gift Baskets is here to save the day!
GourmetGiftBaskets.com was founded 12 years ago, by Ryan Abood, with family values and the desire to provide exceptional gifts for all of life’s special occasions, for every budget from $9.99 to $399.99.Through years of working in his family’s flower shop in New Hampshire, he realized there was an opportunity to provide handmade, high quality gift baskets. What began with two family members in the basement of a flower shop has exploded into a multi-million dollar company, that still remains true to its core values of exceptional gourmet ingredients, handcrafted with care.
The site has teemed with King of Pop popcorn, and offers 92 different flavors of the year, in it's different gift baskets, and by itself. We were sent a couple of samples to try out:
This $9.99 gift includes a bag of 'coal' popcorn inside a red felt Christmas stocking.
The naughty and nice gift has a sweet 'black cherry' tasting dyed popcorn treat. BUT when you eat it, the naughty comes out as you can see- your lips and tongue turn black! AHA, now you CAN know who stole the popcorn off your desk! It's a fun gift and kids will get a big hoot out of it, as you can tell!
If you're in need of a family size gift:
Certain foods are traditionally enjoyed around the holidays. Foods like rum balls and candy canes and fruit cakes (even though no one actually eats them). So for this holiday season, we took the festive tastes people love most and recreated them in a uniquely delicious way: with our popcorn.
This 9 piece $39.99 gift comes in a lovely box, with individual bags of holiday flavored popcorn. But this is more than just flavored popcorn- you really will think you're eating homemade popcorn, with the wonderful flavors. There isn't a 'fake' taste, but one of the fresh ingredients! The general consensus by everyone was that it was the best gourmet popcorn they had ever had!
The box we received has the following flavors:
-White Chocolate Peppermint (very minty)
- Cinnamon Bun (pictured above- Miss Grace declared it her favorite!)
- Holiday Anise Cookie (very much like German Holiday cookies)
- Tuxedo (dark and white chocolate- my favorite, and Miss Grace's second fav)
- Gingerbread (tastes JUST like the cookies)
- Banana Cream Pie (Dad's fav)
- Dark Chocolate Orange (odd, but tasty!)
- Strawberry Cheesecake (Mom's fav)
-Dark Chocolate Chili (the surprise of the box, VERY tasty but it has a KICK!).
Some flavors have now been changed, so check before you order!
