Now that wedding season is upon us (I myself am going to three in the next two months, followed shortly thereafter by my own wedding!) we thought we’d take this perfect opportunity to show how gift baskets make absolutely perfect wedding gifts. So many couples aren’t comfortable with having a registry and asking for lots of gifts. And money, while generous, just isn’t all that memorable. So what are we to do? When the happy couple seems to have everything they need, and money just doesn’t seem personal enough, gift baskets – and indulgent wine gift baskets – are the perfect wedding gift. Why? We’ll show you. Onward!
Giving the happy couple a great bottle (or two, or three) of wine gives them something to toast long after the wedding, and they’ll definitely remember your generosity. One of our favorite bottles to give is Sean Minor’s Chardonnay, in the Premier Selection Wine Basket. It’s a light Central Coast Chardonnay with golden straw hue and displays aromas of apple, pear, tropical citrus and pineapple with subtle notes of cardamom cinnamon and vanilla spice. Cheers to the happy couple, indeed!
Want to make an even bigger entrance? Present the newlyweds with a toast – imagine them popping this bottle open on their honeymoon, after all the planning and celebrating has finally come to fruition! Classic and timeless yellow label Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne has notes of almond, brioche and white flowers. Presented in a leather trimmed basket with lots of luscious chocolates, this gift simply defines celebration.
But gift baskets are, in essence, all about two things: the plethora and the pairings. Abundant baskets that overflow with gourmet fare that’s specifically matched to create a real menu? That’s where the great impression is really made. The Select Charcuterie and Gourmet Cheese Hamper is a fine example of perfectly paired cuisine. Inside this keepsake picnic basket the newlyweds will enjoy four different imported artisan cheeses, Tuscan herbed salami, Iberian ham, smoked salmon, olives, almonds, cornichons, chocolates and more.
Take a look through GiftTree’s collection of gift baskets and wine baskets! Artfully arranged in keepsake containers that the newlyweds will repurpose after the contents of the gift have been sipped and savored, our perfectly paired baskets of gourmet food and wine are guaranteed to leave a lasting impression. Give a gift basket as a wedding gift and send the happy couple on a tasting adventure they’ll remember forever.
