Start With Their Favorite Baked Goods

- Are cookies their favorite baked good? Or, do they prefer brownies and blondies?
- What cookie flavor do they like the most?
- How many cookies should I include for this person (or family)?
- Do they have dietary restrictions? Should I include gluten free baked goods?
Match the Gift Basket to the Occasion
Dessert and cookie gift baskets are perfect for winter holidays, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and every other holiday throughout the year. However, they can also be given to friends and family for many other celebrations and events, such as:
- Newborn Babies
- Special Accomplishments
- Or, just to say Thank You
No matter who you are shopping for, keep the event or time of year in mind. Matching the gift basket to the occasion will show your thoughtfulness and make the recipient feel special.
Remember, It Actually IS the Thought That Counts
Don’t stress about your budget when gift shopping. Ultimately, it’s not the size of the gift basket that matters, but the thought behind it. When you find a dessert or cookie gift basket that shows your love and care, you can’t go wrong.
