Gourmet baskets are a bit of a well-kept secret. Sure, people know about them — getting one feels like you've won the treat lottery. But it can be easy to forget that they're such an excellent option for giving during holidays and celebratory events. Gift baskets aren’t just presents to pick out at the last minute when you’re unsure what to get someone, either. They’re truly thoughtful options, particularly because you can tailor their contents to reflect your recipient’s personal preferences when it comes to goodies and delicious things to eat. Plus, nothing says "I’m thinking about you" better than a gift that’s packed with old favorites and new things to try.

The option to customize their contents is just one of a gift basket’s many benefits. These treasure troves are also often packed with so many items that it’s like giving many gifts in one — and many delicious gifts if you opt for a food-themed basket. Another totally satisfying aspect of gift baskets? They’re ideal for any occasion you want to mark, and their presentation is beautiful and celebratory (which is excellent news if you’re not exactly proud of your wrapping skills). Ready to send out some bountiful baskets to your loved ones? We’ve rounded up options to suit everyone you want to spoil, from aspiring bakers to soup lovers.
