Fruit Gift Basket

Fruit Gift Basket

A fruit gift basket is a wonderful gift idea for any recipient and any occasion. Fruit gift baskets are available in a wide array of style and sizes, and can usually be customized to fit nearly any preferences. Not necessarily limited to only fruit, these baskets often play host to a variety of other items that go well with fruit. Brimming with the freshest available produce, a fruit gift basket lets someone special know that you care.

Some popular fruits that may be included in a fruit gift basket include apples, pears, oranges, and grapefruit. Depending on the time of year and seasonal availability, a fruit gift basket may also include peaches, cherries, strawberries, or other fruits. Companies that make and sell fruit gift baskets should be able to readily tell you what types of produce are available to be included in a basket at any given time of year. Some companies that produce fruit gift baskets also offer fruit-of-the-month club or other similar shipments. These allow you to send a year-round variety of fruit gift baskets on a regular monthly, quarterly, or semi-annual basis.

Other items that may be included in a fruit gift basket include crackers, nuts and cheeses. If you are giving a fruit gift basket that includes a selection of nut in the shell, you may want to consider including a nutcracker in the basket as well. Some truly gourmet fruit gift baskets can include a whole variety of delicious treats, from fresh and dried fruits, sometimes including some fruits dipped in chocolate, to cookies or cakes and even bottles of apple cider or wine.

Depending on the occasion, you may wish to vary the container for your fruit gift basket. While a traditional wicker basket always looks nice, you may want to consider a cornucopia shaped basket in the fall, or a bushel-basket style container for a "fresh from the farm" look during the summer. A fruit gift basket packaged in a reusable basket or crate made from natural or recycled materials is also a great idea.

A fruit gift basket can be a wonderfully versatile gift. Whether you are looking for a way to thank a special client or welcome someone to a new home, a fruit gift basket can be suited to any individual and made to fit into any budget with ease.
