When you select wine and cheese gift baskets, first start with the wine.
That's the most important part of the birthday gift.
Would the receiver prefer red or white?
Do you want this to be a very special gift?
In that case, you will be spending more, but it will be worth it.
A large basket with:
3 nice bottles of wine, plus cheese and gourmet snacks will probably run around at least $125.
I've found lots of different baskets in all price ranges.
Here are some of the best wine cheese gift baskets.
If you are going to attend a birthday party, you might want to have the basket delivered beforehand. Then when you arrive, the guest of honor already has his or her gift. This is especially nice if it is going to be a large function.
In the case of a gift for a business associate, it's best to have the gift baskets delivered to their residence. Many online stores let you personalize the gift to suit the receiver which will of course include a message from you.
I favor California wine baskets because that's where I'm from.
But, you may prefer another part of the country. If the recipient is a wine connoisseur- you may consider selecting international wines.
Once you select the wine, then select the cheese and gourmet snacks that go along.
Many wine and cheese gift baskets will have wine and cheese of course - but they'll also have chocolates. Others will have more appetizer type foods like cheese, nuts, and finger foods.
If you're selecting a basket for a woman, she may prefer a little chocolate. Whereas a man would probably prefer a more salty snack
If you'd rather spend most of your money on the wines, it's fine to go a
little less expensive on the basket or container. Especially if you are
buying for a man as they may not ever use the basket again.
Another idea is if you would like to purchase a very nice wine basket and then select the contents yourself.
For this option here are some beautiful wine and cheese baskets.
You could then hand select your wine and cheese locally.
If you really want to impress someone, think about also making some homemade gourmet snacks.
