Updated on September 23, 2012

hot sauce gift basket - hot sauce gift

A hot sauce gift basket makes a great gift for anyone who enjoys BBQ cooking, grilling, cooking, or eating spicy foods. This is a useful gift that the receiver will appreciate, especially if the hot sauce gift includes some unusual or hard-to-find sauces. If you have someone on your gift list who’s hard to buy for, this could be the answer to your problems. These sauces could be perfect for Father’s Day, Christmas, birthdays, and even Mother’s Day. Yes, women like a little spice, too! I know this to be true from personal experience, as I love hot and spicy foods. Well, actually, I love just about all foods, and sauces can enhance just about everything. I’ve actually bought myself a hot sauce gift or two.

What kind of hot sauce gift should I buy?


You can buy a hot sauce gift in the form of a single bottle, or you can purchase sets of different flavors, as in a hot sauce gift basket. These come with several different sauces, often made by the same manufacturer. These will probably have different flavors of sauces, with perhaps different degrees of “heat.” Even if the person you’re buying for doesn’t like really hot foods, he can still use very hot sauces sparingly. In that case, a bottle of fiery sauce will last much longer than a bottle of milder sauce.

You might also want to consider how the sauces will be used. Does the person enjoy grilling? If so, you’ll want to be sure to include some sauces that go well with meats, fish, poultry, or anything else that might be cooked on a grill.

If the person isn’t much of a griller but enjoys cooking, think about the types of foods they like. Are they fond of Cajun cuisine, Thai cuisine, or Mexican cuisine? Several culinary cultures around the globe incorporate spicy sauces in many of their dishes. If you’ve been out to eat with this person, what kinds of foods does he usually order? This should give you a hint about what kinds of hot sauces he might like.

What type of hot sauce gift basket is best?


When it comes to a hot sauce gift basket, just about anything is possible! You might find one that contains a lot more than just a variety of sauces. Other items that might be included are nuts, salsa, chips, mustards, rubs, chili mix, coffee, jerky, cookies, pretzels, dips, grilling marinades, barbecue sauce, and even grilling utensils. You’ll also find more than one hot sauce gift basket that contains gourmet hot sauces. This is sure to please even the most jaded connoisseur!

Uses for a hot sauce gift


Obviously, most of the items mentioned here are edible, other than the grilling utensils. Your recipient will find all kinds of uses for the sauces. We use them all the time! They’re great in grilling marinades, in Mexican dishes, in Asian dishes, and in barbecue sauces. With a variety of sauces, it’s easy to get creative with seasoning different foods. Heck, we pour the sauce directly on things like pork rinds, fried chicken, and hot wings. Look below and find a hot sauce gift basket at a discount that tickles your fancy!
