1800Baskets Holiday Review and Giveaway

There's something very special about receiving a gift basket. Especially a well put together one, and the gift basket I received from 1-800-Baskets was no different. Even though I knew the basket was on it's way, it was still so nice to come home to this surprise little treat.

I received the Comfort & Joy Sweet Treats Gift Basket. (description from 1-800-Baskets' site) Send holiday tidings that will make them glad all over with this colorful, round steel-wire gift basket. It's brimming over with sweet treats, including a creamy-cool Harry London® White Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel, decadent Ghirardelli® Dark Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Mint Squares, King Leo® Soft Peppermint Puffs, a gourmet hand-pulled jumbo candy cane and more.


I was worried that the items would shift in shipment, or that the white chocolate pretzel would be broken into little pieces, but it arrived exactly as shown in the picture; absolutely perfect. It was absolutely perfect for about 3 minutes, and then we couldn't wait to tear into it, and see exactly what was inside.

Hubby quickly claimed the pretzel for himself, and #1 tried to hide the soft peppermint candies because they remind her of Christmas at Gramma's. I couldn't wait to enjoy the French twists with a cup of coffee, and #2 had her eye on the jumbo candy cane.

There was a plenty of little treats in this basket, and they were all really good. I especially love the style of the basket. Because it fits perfectly in my kitchen, I think it will be our new apple basket.

I was very pleased with this basket. It will definitely make a great gift for that special person on your holiday list.

Buy it:
1-800-Baskets has a large selection of gift baskets to fit many occasions and many budgets. I found plenty of other baskets from 1-800-Baskets that I'd like to send as gifts, but with so many to choose from it won't be easy to decide. You can send the Comfort & Joy Sweet Treat Basket to one of your favorite people for only $29.99
