I have to be honest, I love the idea of the holiday season. I do.
I love giving to others.
I love finding that perfect thing that you know will just make them happy. Or finding that perfect thing that fits them so well.
But, let’s admit it, not everyone on our list is that easy to shop for.
The last few years, I have resorted to gift baskets for various things – pampering, movie night, cooking – you can get real creative with gift baskets and Uncorked Ventures can help!
I received the chocolate gift basket from Uncorked Ventures. I received one bottle of wine (I was provided a Zinfandel wine), eight chocolate bars, drinking chocolate (for hot or cold drinks), and chocolate covered mango morsels.
I was really torn over which gift basket I was going to get, but I love chocolate and there is nothing more dreamy than a hot tub, a glass of delicious wine and some chocolate to carry away the stress of the day.
The box was shipped in a very beautiful wooden box, nicely packed with all the of the contents.
It shipped perfectly and would be pleased if this were sent to me as a gift.
Now, if you are my hubby, he is not a fan of chocolate (nor is he really a fan of drinking wine) but he loves to cook. For him, the gourmet gift basket would be perfect. This gift basket offers your choice of one or two wines, bread, extra virgin olive oil and traditional styled balsamic vinegar. Additionally, Hurley Farms provides a jar of seasonal jam or jelly as well as a special jar of their Herb Garden Mustard. Included is a a tin of Fiddyment Farm’s astonishing Sea Salt & Pepper Pistachios, and of course, eight dark chocolate bars. Can you imagine the deliciousness you could make with that basket!?
Then of course is the wine essentials gift basket. Perfect for the newbie wine drinker or maybe a housewarming gift or new couple gift. Or maybe a professional gift (a good way to impress the boss, right!?) This gift basket includes your choice of one or two bottles of wine, a pair of “O” stemless wine tumblers, and a Laguiole Waiter’s Corkscrew.
Uncorked Ventures source their wines from California, Oregon, and Washington’s best wine producers and rate them as exceptional, rare, distinct, precious and unforgettable.
I personally love that there is a gift basket for everyone on your gift giving list all year long and that it comes packaged and delivered in a beautiful wooden box ready to give to your gift recipient.
Which gift basket would you chose?
