Thanksgiving is just around the corner and for those who can’t be with the ones they love, sending a gift basket might be the perfect way to say, “Happy Holidays!” It’s also a good option for guests who want to bring something festive to a celebration. When it comes to which basket and from which company to buy, the Internet has numerous options. Variations range in price, personalization and, of course, taste.
1. Cookies and Brownies: About $30-$40
One of the best ways to celebrate is with a colorful Thanksgiving cookie and delicious brownie.
2. Cornucopia: About $45
Forget the basket: Nothing says fall and Thanksgiving like a cornucopia. Luckily, there are several companies that give the options of sending gifts in a horn of plenty instead of a basket.
3. Pie: About $40
The only thing that is probably better than a homemade pie is one that is delivered free of charge to the front door. While sending pies to friends and family might not be a common practice, it will most likely be an appreciated one.
4. Assortment: About $50
Not sure what type of treat the host fancies? There are dozens of Thanksgiving assortments that have both sweet and savory selections.
5. Wine and Chocolate: About $60
Chances are the host or recipient of the gift probably has an abundance of food in the works for Thanksgiving, so sending a bottle of wine, decorated with fall colors, could be the best way to say “thinking of you.”
