More and more of us have friends that are far away these days and I find I’m often sending gift baskets long distances to celebrate weddings, birthdays, and big events. The problem with this is that you usually need to handpick the items yourself, package them in a way that looks beautiful but still ships well, and then pay huge postage fees on top of the cost of the gift itself.
Or, you could go with an Uncorked Ventures gift basket and let them do all the work for you while you accept all the thanks. With collections specifically for chocolate lovers, those who love to cook, and wine lovers, it’s easy to find that perfect set for even the hardest to buy for.
We got to check out the Gourmet Gift Basket and it was an amazingly eclectic pairing of high-end kitchen cooking and entertaining must-haves, along with wine, the ultimate cooking tool. You know I’m a fan of anything that is delivered to my home with wine in it, but even more so when it comes with an assortment of specialty items that you just can’t find at the grocery store.
It would be hard to pick a favorite of the bunch as it means choosing between fancy oil and vinegar, chocolates and pistachios, but I’d have to go with the WINE. This was my first introduction to School House Winery, and it went over very well. The Mescolanza Syrah Blend was perfect for pairing with appetizers and dinner as well as with the chocolate for dessert.
Speaking of chocolate, if you haven't heard of San Fransisco-based TCHO, you are missing out. The Gourmet Gift Basket held 4 squares of TCHO chocolate – one each of their signature Chocolatey, Nutty, Fruity and Citrus flavors and each of them was perfect for a delicious dark chocolate treat for hubby and I after the kids went to bed, with or without wine.
Sad that wine country isn't a quick jaunt away? Uncorked Ventures’ Gourmet Gift Basket can bring all the flavors of wine country right to your door, packaged for gifting, displaying, or simply enjoying with someone special. With baskets containinng one or two amazing and rare boutique West Coast wines of 90+ point quality accompanied by gourmet treats, sweets, and gadgets, they are perfect for everyone on your list.
If you're desperately searching for a thoughtful gift for even the hardest to buy for on your list, I would highly recommned checking out Uncorked Ventures array of wine gift baskets. Check out UncorkedVentures.com to see all their gift giving options!
