Gourmet Gift Baskets for the Party Hostess

What to bring to the party host or hostess is sometimes no easy task to determine. A bottle of wine is easy but a little obvious. Chocolates are delicious but not always personal and your box of sweets can easily get lost in the pile of other boxes of chocolate. Now a gift basket is a lot more personal, especially when they can be more than wine or chocolates. And this is where Gourmet Gift Baskets comes into the picture.  img_2500

Have a host who loves his winter beers? You don’t need to put together the basket on your own and figure out what to put into it. The Winter Seasonal Beer Bucket is a sweet grouping of things any beer lover will appreciate. The bucket is filled with six cold-weather beers and gourmet snacks, which includes artisan crackers, premium cheese and salami.


To get specific, the bucket contains:

  • Winterhook Dark Ale by Redhook
  • Sick Day by Long Trail
  • Peak Organic Winter Session
  • Prelude Special Ale by Shipyard
  • Trösten by Von Trapp
  • Goose Winter Ale by Goose Island
  • Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper Kettle Corn by KingOfPOP.com
  • Toasted Sesame Flatbread Crackers by Partners
  • Savory Garlic Cheddar Cheese by Mountain View Cheese Co.
  • Salami by Bavaria
  • Chichester Snack Mix by Merrimack Valley Snack Company
  • Zesty Ranch Popcorn by KingOfPOP.com

And if winter ales aren’t your thing. The gift basket company also has an Around the World Beer Bucket and a Microbrew Beer Bucket Gift Basket.


Or what about the brunch hostess who makes a mean Bloody Mary? Try the Bloody Mary Gift Basket – complete with the Bloody Mary Elixir which is a handcrafted, all-natural cocktail mix with hints of tangy lemon and black pepper, as well as snacks like smoked sausage, premium cheeses, crisp deli style crackers, savory snack mix and roasted peanuts.


This basket comes with:

  • Bloody Mary Cocktail Mixer by Powell & Mahoney
  • Garlic Summer Sausage by Neuske’s
  • Monterey Jack Jalapeno Cheese by Mountain View Cheese Co.
  • Hors D’oeuvre Deli Style Crackers by Partners
  • Spicy Cheddar & Veggie Cheese by Mountain View Cheese Co.
  • Honey Mustard & Onion Pretzel Pieces by Harvey’s Pretzels
  • Chichester Snack Mix by Merrimack Valley Snack Company
  • Roasted & Salted Peanuts by J&R Gourmet


Those baskets don’t work for your host or hostess? Gourmet Gift Basket’s have a variety of categories – candy, breakfast, cheesecake, chocolate, cookie, coffee, grilling & BBQ, gluten free, kosher, popcorn, snacks, brownies, tea, wine, beer, champagne, and bakery.

Some of these packages can still be delivered by Christmas if you still need to bring something to your party. And there is plenty of time to get a gift basket by New Years. Trust me, these baskets are so worth gifting AND since they come already assembled you’re saving time by not needing to put it all together or hit a dozen stores to make it happen.
