Fruit, Pie, or Baked Good
The classic fruits like oranges and apples, accompanied with a fresh baked apple or pumpkin pie. Nothing like a warm, toasty pie for your neighbor or family friends. Homemade biscottis, cookies, and muffins are relatively easy to whip up as well, plus you can make batches to put in other baskets.If you’re not a baking kind, local bakery is fine or just a nice jar of country jam or preserves will do!
Who doesn’t love chocolate? At least someone in every family will positively love you for adding this gift basket essential. For extra quality, try to get/order chocolate that is from a single location/country. For instance chocolate from Guatemala, using local cocoa bean and sources make it extra special.
Cufflinks and Tie Bars
Commemorative tie bars and cufflinks from your family’s favorite NFL team will make their season. Don’t forget, there will be a football game on Christmas Day. We have all your NFL goodies and gifts at Cufflinksman:
Coffee and Tea
Self explanatory. Any kind of freshly ground coffee from Starbucks, Marshalls, or Dean& Deluca. Tea from Teahaven or local store. Get tea in bags, unless you know they have a tea strainer in the cupboard.
Festive ribbons make everyone happy.
After all that holiday cooking, gift wrapping, and monkeying around the house, people need a little lotion. Plus skin gets cracked and dry during the winter season, so these miniature lotions make great gifts.
It could be a homemade ornament from one of your children (or yourself…), a collector’s item, a picture frame, or a little memento from the city you live in! These add a personal touch to the generic gift basket, especially when it’s thoughtful and particular to who your giving it to.
