Dried Fruit and Nut Gift Basket

Updated on April 20, 2010

Dried Fruit Platter

These platters or baskets are great for just about anything. Who doesn't love a healthy snack? Ok, well a lot of people, but it's a dried fruit basket is great to bring to an office meeting, holiday gathering, birthday party, wedding shower, baby shower, congratulations gift, house warming party, and just about anything where there will be finger foods, snacks, and people.

Dried fruit baskets are great because they are a healthy alternative to sugary snacks. The different fruits are rich in vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C, folic acid, and dietary fiber. Dried peaches, prunes, and apricots are rich in potassium and can help maintain a healthy blood pressure.

The dried fruit baskets that are featured below are great options to choose from. They are packaged so that once unwrapped, they are ready to be served. Just make sure that before placing the fruits on the table, you store them in a cool place.

Because the fruits are dried, the platter and any left over dried fruits are good for about 4 to 6 months. The nuts are the freshest for about 3 to 4 months.

Depending on what you're looking for and how big of a basket you want, you'll find that there are many options.

If you're looking for a dried fruit platter for an office party or family gathering, you may want to purchase a larger gift basket, but if you're just looking for a dried fruit basket for one person as a gift, there are smaller options that you can choose from.

Do keep in mind that some of the fruits may still contain pits and/or seeds, and the nuts may pose an allergy concern. But, not all dried fruit gift baskets will contain nuts, and they don't all contain pitted fruits. You just have to search around for the gift basket, that suits what you're looking for.
