Fruit Gift Basket

Updated on April 20, 2010

Gourmet Fruit Basket

Fruits are a great healthy gift that you can give anyone for any occasion. Most fruit baskets include other food items, such as cheese, crackers, dipping sauce, jam, nuts, and sometimes sausage. Depending on the gift basket that you choose, you'll find there can be a varied assortment.

Just remember that before you purchase a food gift basket, that you read the ingredients label and warnings. You want to make sure that you do not overstep any food allergies for your recipient.

Also remember that because each basket is going to be a little different, sometimes you can't go by the information listed online as a sole buyer's guide. Sometimes the baskets will vary depending on what state the basket will be shipped to, the season, and what fruits are available in inventory.

When choosing a gift basket for a gift, you don't always have to spend a lot of money. You can buy a cheap gift basket, or you can split the cost with a few friends or co-workers. Depending on the occasion, you may want to have a larger gift basket.

Reasons to buy a gift basket can include house warming party, gift for a new client, congratulations gift, welcome home gift, thank you gift, an appreciation gift, and just about anything in between. Some people purchase gift baskets for holidays and others find it nice to gift a fruit gift basket just because.

Because there is such a varied option that one can choose from when picking a gift basket, you don't always want to pick the first one you find. Check out the options below. Each basket is a little different, and you can even select a cheaper basket from the list at the bottom.
