Gift baskets like this are fantastic. They allow you to give something special, often a treat, to a person that may not need another tie or pair of slippers. They are sure to love these types of gifts not just on Christmas day but for weeks later as they continue to enjoy them. Here are a few ideas for gift baskets that could bring a smile to your loved one's face.

Meat and Cheese Gift Basket

One of the most popular options for holiday gift-giving is the meat and cheese gift basket. You can find a wide range of options to select from with various price points, enabling you to find just what is right for your recipient. These are a great gift to give someone that is often hosting a Christmas party or get together that needs something fast and easy to serve to those visiting. They can also be a great movie night treat for those who will spend their winter months watching their favorite shows.

Choose from a range of options for your meat and cheese gift basket. The Cheese, Sausage, Crackers & Nuts Tray is an excellent choice because it offers an arrangement of options that most people enjoy including flavorful meats and nuts that are perfect for the holidays. The variety in this tray is what helps it to stand out.

If you are looking to give a tray like this with a bit more of an elegant design to it, consider the Hickory Farms boxes. These include the finest of meats and cheeses out there, often selected based on your favorite preferences. The Gourmet Extravaganza Gift Box is one example, with numerous cheeses and several beef sausages included. You can choose smaller options from this company, too.

A Fruit Basket

One of the most common traditional gift baskets to give during the holidays is a fruit basket. You can choose from a range of options here, including exotic fruits or just the most common, that includes apples and pears. Often, these gift boxes include much more than just a few fruits.

For example, in the Bon Vivant Gourmet Basket, the recipient will get to enjoy grapes, apples, bananas, and oranges, all of which are very commonly enjoyed. However, they may also get a few treats with it, such as some chocolate mixed in or some cheese. Check out this type of basket when you want to give fruit that goes to the next level.

Gourmet Gift Basket

Think outside the box when you want to give more than just a simple gift of fruits. There are a few gourmet gift basket options that can work very well for you when you want to give a bit of everything.

A good example of that is the Everything and More Gourmet Basket. It includes, as its name says, a little bit of everything. That includes English teas, snacks, dips, chocolate truffles, cheeses, mustards, and even a brownie or two. The key here is that the arrangement of options provided is sure to bring a smile to everyone's face. Gift this type of gift basket when you want to please a large group or when you are not too sure what someone may appreciate.

Another option is the Premier Gourmet Snack Basket. Just like the other option, it offers a good range of options that just about anyone can appreciate. This includes options such as crackers with bacon and habanero, chocolate brownie, gouda cheese spreads, and cookies. There are a range of fabulous items in there that most people are going to enjoy having available to them throughout the winter months.

The Sweet Harvest Gift Tower is another example of a gourmet gift box for Christmas. This special gift box includes a range of items, each within its own small box that is stacked up to create an impressive gift. Some of the items within it include jellies, caramels, tea cookies, tropical mixes of snacks, peanuts and fruits, and even some English fudge sea salt.
