Gourmet Gift Basket Review & Giveaway **Closed**


 
I was so excited to finally get a basket from Gourmet Gift Baskets to review! Our basket is called Christmas Gift Basket Clasic. My husband thought I had hit the jackpot or something! I told him it was very important to review a Christmas basket and he just looked at me like I had lost my mind. Now, can you believe that? Well, he is a man, after all. Well, he changed his tune when it arrived, he was the first one to rip into it looking for something to snack on!

Here is a list of treats that was in our basket:

1. Chocolate Covered Cherries
2. Dark Chocolate Bar
3. Chocolate Chip Cookies
4. Almond Cluster Popcorn
5. Raspberry Honey Mustard Pretzel Dip
6. Bag of Pretzels
7. Box of Cheese Biscuits
8. Box of Salted Peanuts
9. Bag of Peanut Brittle
10.Bag of Trail Mix

So, as you can see, it was a little bit of everything so that hopefully, there would be something in it for everyone. We really enjoyed the Almond Cluster Popcorn the best with the Trail Mix and Peanut Brittle coming in pretty close. The Chocolate Chip cookies were also awesome because they had bits of pecans in them, too! The Chocolate Covered Cherries were Mike's favorite. I have never been one to like those kind of cherries so he was happy to have the whole bag to himself, which is fine because I really ate some serious Popcorn!!

Gosh, Gourmet Gift Baskets has so many different baskets to choose from it would be hard to decide which one to send to whom. Gourmet Gift Baskets would make the perfect gift to give for business as it is something that everyone in an office would enjoy without having to go and personally pick up one thing for this person and another for this person. You have it all at your fingertips and can order it online at any time of day. They all over the United States so that is not a problem either. I love the baskets that they use, too.

I have mine sitting on the living room floor right now and it is filled with this month's magazines! I had gotten a basket one year from an office party and no one else wanted the basket so I took it home and it now holds all my washcloths and it sitting on the guest bathroom vanity. I think it adds a nice personal touch. So, get your thinking caps on and think about where or how you would use your basket once all the goodies are gone.

The neat thing about Gourmet Gift Baskets is that you can shop by categories such as Christmas, Corporate Gifts, Wine, Beer, Breakfast, Fruit, Baked Goods, Chocolate, Snack and even Same Day Gifts! So no matter what your need, it is only a fingertip away. You can also choose to shop by price if you have a certain amount that you have to stay in then go that route so you won't be tempted to overdue it and you will only see the baskets or gifts that fit your budget. You can also choose to shop by person, meaning: man, woman, grandparents or children. I think Gourmet Gift Baskets has tried to cover all the bases so you don't have to!

Did you know that they are in the Guinness World Book of Records? I didn't! They are in the Book for the World's Largest Iced Coffee, Largest Cup of Coffee and for the Largest Cupcake! Now, see, I did not even know these things went on so I learned something new by cruising their site tonight. Go to the link I have in the first sentence and read all about how they did it and for what charity they did it for: Susan G. Komen for the cure of Breast Cancer!

I love it when I hear that a company gives back, don't you? I also found a section called Articles where they give you tips or tidbits on things to help you or to just educate you on some interesting facts. Below the Articles on the same page you will see a list of all the news stations, newspapers, magazines and talk shows where they have been featured or talked about! Man, they have been very busy!
