I haven't talked about it yet but I AM planning a big Green Holiday Gift Guide Event for this year! The event will officially kick off December 3rd when I get back from my trip to Puerto Vallarta. But I wanted to start things off with a BANG before leaving on my trip to get everyone excited for the event.
Remember a few months ago when I told you about Gourmet Gift Baskets? They are a wonderful company that offers hundreds of gift basket options that you can order and send directly to the recipient. I've never had anyone send me a Gourmet Gift Basket at work, but I know that if someone did it would make my day (and probably even my week!). Therefor, Gourmet Gift Baskets make a great Green Holiday Gift for a family member or good friend who works in an office and could use a little pick me up. I would order a basket for my Mom, who works in a school, so she could share all of the yummy goodness found inside these great baskets with her co-workers and students!
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Kosher Hanukkah baskets!
Today I'd like to tell you specifically about the Nutcracker Drum Christmas Gift Basket! This basket features a beautiful and festive Red and Gold Nutcracker Drum that, once the delicious treats it contains are eaten, can be used for years to come as a wonderful addition to your holiday decorations! That alone to me is worth the $49.99 to purchase this great basket. But it's not all drum! Of course Gourmet Gift Baskets has stuffed the drum full of delicious Holiday treats including Red Nutcracker Cookies, Chocolate Peppermint Cookies, English Toffee Caramels! Not to mention my personal favorite snack food ever.. Praline Pecans! Mmmm... my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
So if you have someone on your Christmas list who may enjoy having a Gourmet Gift Basket delivered directly to their home or office (and really, who wouldn't!) head on over to the website today and see the wide variety of baskets to match every taste, hobby, and dietary need!
What I Love: The wide variety of options at Gourmet Gift Baskets are great! The prices are reasonable and the quality is fantastic. The baskets would make a great gift for pretty much anyone!
What I Don't Love: Nothing I can think to put here, again!
