Fruit basket gifts

Fruit basket gifts

Tell someone thank you, happy anniversary or get well soon with fruit basket gifts.

What are fruit basket gifts?

Fruit basket gifts are nice, large often wooden baskets that are full of different fruits and different fruit products. You can really put anything in these baskets. They're usually sold at gourmet stores or on-line. It's actually very easy to get these baskets. In fact, you'll have so many choices that you might actually have a hard time just picking one! If you don’t like any of the pre-made baskets, you can make your own baskets.

Sample baskets

Fruit basket gifts are divvied up in all kinds of ways. For example, you might get a basket that has fruit according to region. A California fruit basket might include the freshest citrus fruits because California has delicious lemons, limes and oranges. Citrus fruit baskets are phenomenal gifts to give at Christmas time when people in other parts of the country are having a hard time finding good, fresh fruit.

If you live in the Midwest, you might send a Florida friend fruit basket gifts that include berries. The Midwest is known for its blueberries, strawberries and other berries. Unfortunately, berries spoil more quickly than citrus fruits so you might have to get dried berries. Dried berries are wonderful because they can be used in pancakes, cookies and other baked goods. Include some homemade strawberry jam or strawberry scones in these baskets. Then your Florida friend can get a little taste of the fresh berries as well as the dried ones! You can always send along some fruit seeds, though they may not grow well in certain areas.

You can get extremely creative with your fruit basket gifts. Instead of getting your friends and family loads of fruit, get them a bunch of homemade salsas. If you live in Texas or another place in the West, it's easy to find these kinds of salsas. Some of them include peaches, others avocados, strawberries, mangos and oranges.

Sending along fruit basket gifts doesn’t have to be a healthy enterprise if you don't want it to be. Gourmet food and candy stores have all kinds of exotic dried fruits and fruit flavored candy. So, if you're sending the basket to a household that has a lot of kids or doesn't particularly like fruit, get them a basket full of fruit flavored candy.

Some other things to include

Fruit basket gifts can include just about anything you want them to. In a citrus basket you can also include a juicer. This will allow the people who get the basket to make their own juice. The person receiving the Midwest fruit basket gifts might like to try some cherry wine, which is a specialty in this region.
