Checking Our List #25: GourmetGiftBaskets.com {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Michelle!}

When it comes to gift-buying for the holidays, I think my creativity runs out after my second or third purchase. I'm not sure what happens, but my ideas seem to stop coming and people end up with the same boring things that they always do.

It would be nice to surprise someone with something great though, wouldn't it? Just to see the look on their face or receive the happy phone call later from a good friend or a co-worker or anyone, really, who had the pleasure of receiving something unique and delicious. Something like an award-winning gift basket of goodies from GourmetGiftBaskets.com.

With gift and fruit baskets for every occasion, GourmetGiftBaskets.com has a handmade item filled with critically acclaimed gourmet foods that will suit everyone's tastes. These aren't the same prepackaged gift baskets that have been sitting in a warehouse somewhere that other companies use, instead GourmetGiftBaskets.com only uses the freshest fruits and the highest quality snacks or products that have each been individually chosen for each particular grouping.

The result? GourmetGiftBaskets.com is so sure that you will love their products that their gift baskets are backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you aren't completely happy or the recipient of your gesture isn't raving, GourmetGiftBaskets.com will work to make things right or give you your money back. They're just that sure that you're going to love their gift baskets!

After knowing all that, I couldn't wait to see what the Christmas Gift Baskets from GourmetGiftBaskets.com would entail when seen in person. And when the Christmas Gift Basket Classic arrived, I could tell that I wasn't going to be the only one whose mouth was watering.

Arriving well-packaged and cleanly wrapped, I put off opening this gift basket for a little while just because of how pretty it was. However, when we were packing up to get together with family, I knew it was the perfect time to bring this along for everyone to have a taste.

After opening up the packaging, it was time to get a better look at the yummy goodies that were waiting inside.

From chocolate covered cherries to raspberry honey mustard pretzel dip to cheese biscuits, the variety of snacks inside were just right so that there was something for everyone. Suitable for an individual gift or for an office or family to share, the ten items in the Christmas Gift Basket Classic were as appealing as they tasty.

As Big Sister E couldn't get enough of the chocolate chip pecan cookies and the dipping pretzels, my husband was eager to try the dark chocolate pecan caramel patties, the one item that wasn't listed as being included on GourmetGiftBaskets.com. Looking over their list, I found that these patties were in place of almond clustered popcorn, something that my husband also would have enjoyed... but probably not quite as much. How did they know?

Whether you choose to browse by price, occasion, theme, gourmet food or more, GourmetGiftBaskets.com has an option to meet your needs and your recipient's tastes. Instead of a fruitcake or plant this holiday season, one of these gift baskets is plenty versatile enough that just about anyone would enjoy one - and would have enough to share!

Thanks to the generosity of GourmetGiftBaskets.com, one person will have the opportunity to send a great basket of yummy goodies to someone they know, because...
