It’s that time of year where everyone is looking for gifts, and Chocolate Gift Baskets are perfect for many people on your list. The ideal gift basket will be some kind of reusable container with an assortment of different items in it. If you are trying to save money, skimp on the basket and focus on the quality of the items inside the basket. They can always throw away the box it comes in but they will be disappointed if the chocolate doesn’t taste good.
While you can get gift baskets just about anywhere, you will need to go to specific merchants to get chocolate gift baskets. Here are a few of my favorites:
Ghirardelli is one of the most well-known names in chocolate for a good reason. Their chocolate is of incredibly high quality but at affordable prices. Their gift baskets come in a variety of sizes and feature mainly chocolate bars of different sizes and flavors.
If you are looking for chocolate gift baskets with more variety than just candy, Gourmet Gift Baskets is a great option. Some of the items in their various baskets include red wine, chocolate covered fruits, and chocolate cookies. Plus, you can save save $10 on orders of $50 or more with code HOLIDAY10 (good through 01/31/11).
A final great place to order gift baskets is 1-800-BASKETS. They have quite a few chocolate gifts as well as many different baskets. Although they do not have a specific category for Chocolate Gift Baskets, many of their Towers include chocolate. You will find a lot of branded chocolate there including Fannie May, Cheryl’s, and Godiva. You can save money-15%- (and order a bigger basket!) with code BSKTSAVE15 (ends 12/31/10)
Wherever you decide to shop, remember that you can’t go wrong when you order a great selection of quality chocolates!
