Have you ever had a friend’s birthday coming up and just couldn’t figure out what to send? Or, maybe your dad is has hard to buy for as mine is and you struggle with your father’s day gift ideas every year? I love to send themed gift baskets for special occasions for a couple of reasons. One, it is a little bit different than what everyone else with be getting them and two it is incredibly easy to shop online for a special basket and have it delivered. La Bella Baskets recently contacted me about reviewing one of their baskets and I really enjoyed browsing around the great selection on their website. If you are not familiar with La Bella Baskets, here is some information about them from their website:
One thing I really like about La Bella Baskets is their commitment to giving back to the community. All purchases of gifts from La Bella Baskets directly contributes to their La Bella Baskets of Smiles Program. They believe that every single mom needs a calm and nurturing place in their lives to relax, melt away stress, rejuvenate, heal and promote a truly ‘blissful balance’ in body, mind and spirit. So, every month they deliver a La Bella Basket of Smiles to a single mom that is filled with beautiful Spa and Bath essentials.
So, what types of gift baskets does La Bella Baskets offer? They have a wonderful selection including baskets related to gardening, spa products, candles, and many others. You can find chocolate baskets, cookies and even a nice selection of Easter baskets!
For my review, I received the Master of the Grill basket. It was similar to the one shown below, although a few of the items were different.
This basket is perfect for the guy in your life that enjoys grilling out and sharing snacks with buddies. Have a son moving out on his own after graduation this summer? This might be a great way to congratulate him on his new bachelor pad! Here is what is listed for the basket’s contents:
Uncle Rays Barbeque Chips
BBQ Party Snack Mix
Grill Creations Marinade Mix
Classic Italian Marinade
Hot pepper Cheese Round
Wisconsin Smokey Cheddar Cheese Round
2 BBQ Utensils
2 Gourmet BBQ Recipe Cards for Beef
Watson Street Dijon Marinade Mustard
Hampton Farms Salty Peanuts in the Shell
Wooden Slicing/Cutting Board
While it might be cheaper to go out and hunt down similar items and create your own gift it would take a long time to put together the basket with the care that this one was assembled. Everything was taped and wrapped and packaged securely so when I received it in the mail there were no bits and pieces out of place. The basket is shrink wrapped and all tied up nicely with a bow.
I think this is a great selection of items that a person would enjoy on a Saturday afternoon of grilling with friends! If you would like to see other baskets that La Bella Baskets offers you can check out their Facebook Page!
