Holiday gift baskets

Recommended Posts

Anyone have recommendations for holiday gift baskets? My partner always sends out Harry & David so I'd like to go with something different, but google hasn't turned up any obvious winners. I'm thinking something food related but I don't want to send someone a basket of food if it isn't actually good quality.

The same company that owns Harry & David also has other brands. The most appealing of those is Wolferman's Bakery but I have no idea about their quality. Other options would be Williams Sonoma or Central Market.

Wolferman's is good quality.

Booze or Bbq baskets 

+1.  Had a vendor drop off 2 waygu ribeyes and filets with 2 nice bottles of cab at Xmas one year.  He retained the business.

Great thread. I've been tempted to order Collin Street Bakery for my out-of-state clients, especially the non-fruitcake offerings. Anyone think this is a good idea?

What are the best halal or kosher options? Thanks.

Prasek’s Smokehouse.

Is that the place that has a poop log as its logo?

On the jerky front, my daughter got me this:

https://jerkygent.com/pages/gift

She got me three packages (over a few weeks) where there are five or so different bags of different kinds of small company jerkys.  Fun. 

 

A little pricey but all jerky is a little pricey.

I've actually always thoughts those ediblearrangement.com style fruit gifts are pretty good.  They go fast but at least you feel healthy eating them.

Yes, I am paying attention too. Usually send quite a few gift baskets throughout the year. I‘be always just gone with Harry & David so these new ideas are pretty cool. 
I would not recommend a place called Wine Country Gift Baskets. Their stuff is cool, but the next year they will not only flood your physical mailbox with catalogs, they send all that shit to the recipients of your last year’s gifts too.

Texas Pecan Company is good for the traditional nuts/dried fruit.

https://www.texaspecanco.com/

On our Lonesome Dove drive from Mexico-Montana this last summer, we stopped in Fort Davis at this nut place.  The website leaves a little something to be desired but the product is very good:  https://allpecans.com/

Greenberg turkeys are way better than some fruits and nuts. Do it.

Oh, just realized you guys are looking for something a bit more corporate,,,, 

I'm interested for the sake of a few close coworkers (medical practice) and friends. I'm not interested in the corporate sense of vendor/client relationships.
