Gift baskets aren’t appreciated as much as they need to be. Gift baskets are filled with all the best goodies usually and typically are catered to the person who is receiving them. Some people feel they are not personal, but you can make a gift basket your own and give someone a one of a kind gift.
We found a few great gift baskets that feature food that might change your mind of giving a gift basket this year. Here are some of our favorites.
Olympia Provisions Euro Entertainer Box: A charcuterie feast
This gift basket has it all almost. It has a hearty and widespread of meats, cheeses, crackers, pate, and condiments. The food is herby, fatty, salty, and some of the best and delicious charcuterie to get your hands on. The components are made in both Oregon and California, and the company is based in Portland, Oregon.
Both meat-eaters and vegetarians will love this basket because it has a little bit of everything for everyone. The basket costs $125 from Olympia Provisions and will ship free within the United States except for Alaska and Hawaii.

Jasper Hill the Vermonter: All the cheeses
A cheese gift basket is one of the most common we are used to seeing, and we aren’t complaining about that. These cheeses are made in Vermont and embody the Northeast. The cheeses are delicious and snackable, great for gatherings with friends.

Maui Gold Single-Pack: Who doesn’t love pineapple?
This is a cool and unique gift basket to give away. People might find it off to give a pineapple as a gift, but it represents hospitality. The gift basket is a simple box that includes one pineapple. The pineapple is picked at its peak of ripeness and is ready to eat when they get to their destination.
If you think this is your standard grocery store pineapple, you’re wrong. It is flown in from Maui and is fresh and bright with sweet flavors you’ve never experience. This is also a gift that keeps on giving because you can cut the top of the pineapple off, plant it, and grow a whole new pineapple to give to someone else.
The Pineapple from Maui Gold cost $40 to buy and is free to ship anywhere in the United States except for Alaska.
