|Wine Party Picnic Gift Basket|
Mother's Day is in just a few weeks! We've been on the lookout for thoughtful and unique gifts to avoid the same old ideas we send every year. Since we have some new moms in our family this year, we needed to expand our search. In our hunt, we came across the perfect gift basket for my sister-in-law's first Mother's Day at GourmetGiftBaskets.com! It's called the Wine Party Picnic Gift Basket.
We wanted to check it out prior to gifting it to be sure that the quality was as high as it looked on the website. When it arrived yesterday, we were very happy with both the look of it and the contents. I especially like that it includes both red and white wine.
One of our favorite items in the basket is the California Wine Wafer! For those of you who aren't familiar, the wine wafer is a large circular wafer filled with mocha flavored chocolate to be paired with a glass of red wine. In this case, the basket contains cabernet sauvignon (my favorite). Take a bite of wafer and then a small sip of wine. Enjoy! It's a delicious dessert and a decadent addition to the wine party picnic theme. It adds a little extra fun to the package!
Check out what comes inside of the basket:
- Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva by Alto Tierrucav - 750 ml. - A dense, full-bodied Cabernet that's aged for six months to add depth and complexity.
- Chardonnay by Backhouse - 750 ml. - A crisp, golden-colored Chardonnay with flavors of tropical fruit. (In this case, our basket came with a similar Chardonnay from Bogle Vineyard)
- Hors D'Oeuvre Deli Style Crackers by Partners - 4.9 oz. - Thick hors d'oeuvre crackers that are baked with hearty olive oil and gourmet sea salt. (DELICIOUS!)
- Hot Pepper Cheese Round by Northwoods - 4 oz. - A round of smooth Wisconsin cheese that gets a fiery kick from pieces of zesty jalapeños.
- Garlic Summer Sausage by Nueske - 10 oz. - Traditional, handcrafted summer sausage that's made according to family tradition with the highest quality meats and a kick of fresh garlic.
- Mocha Chocolate California Wine Wafers by Sacramento Cookie Company - 2 oz. - Crisp and light handmade wafers that are aged 12 days and filled with decadent mocha chocolate.
- Roasted and Salted Peanuts by J&R Gourmet - 2 oz. - Classic Virginia peanuts that are dusted with salt and carefully roasted until golden.
- Chocolate Wafer Petites by Dolcetto - .7 oz. - Delicate pillow-shaped wafer cookies that wrap around centers of creamy chocolate.
GourmetGiftBaskets.com has a wide variety of baskets and towers to choose from. I imagine you can find the perfect basket for anyone, but especially for Mother's Day! They also have basket themes that include healthy snacks, chocolate, kosher items, coffee, and more. All in all, we were impressed. Can't wait to send one to the mothers in our family!
