“Finding the perfect gift for someone can be a painstaking task. You search high and low for just the right thing to give but you keep coming up empty handed. Then it hits you, a gift basket!
The practice of giving gifts in a basket has been around for centuries. Kings use to send a gift basket full of fruit to their guests quarters as a way of welcoming them into their home. Some famous people have said great things about the gift basket:
“”Those who can make you believe that giving anything but a gift basket is acceptable, can make you commit other social atrocities.”” —Voltaire, Writer and Philosopher
“”It is far better to give a gift basket than receive one””. —Benjamin Franklin
“”I have a terrible need of — dare I say the word? — Religion. Then I go out at night to paint the stars, and send everyone I know a gift basket.”” —Vincent van Gogh So as you can see, the gift basket has been a tried and true form of saying “thank you” or “I love you” for quite some time. The gift basket comes in various shapes, sizes, and contains a variety of things. You have a wine gift basket, a fruit gift basket, a chocolate gift basket and even gift basket that contains meat products.
