Tips - Healthy Gift Baskets

Published December 21, 2007        by Nicole

Tropical Fruit Baskets

Even if you're nowhere near the equator, you can still celebrate the unique tastes of tropical produce grown in the region with a tropical fruit basket. Your basket can be filled with seasonally available fruits available at a local gourmet grocery store. Pineapples are a favorite for these baskets, as are bananas, oranges and grapefruits. But you can also experiment with some more exotic fruit, like mangoes, papayas, passion fruit, and guavas. Ask your grocer for help to make sure you pick out ripe pieces if you are unfamiliar with some of these varieties. Tropical fruit baskets can be a fun way to give someone a taste of a warmer climate, even in the middle of winter.

Nut Gift Baskets

Recent studies have confirmed that nuts contain "good" fat and are an excellent part of a healthy diet when consumed in moderation. Almonds and walnuts in particular have been singled out for their high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids. So why not send a nut gift basket this year to all of your relatives for the holidays? A fun way to make a nut gift basket is to buy some an assortment of nuts (like almonds, peanuts and cashews) in different sized tins, and then stack the tins together to form a "tower." Hold you tower together with some matching ribbon and you've got a quick and impressive presentation for your gift!

Organic Fruit Baskets

Most folks that prefer organic foods are also into healthier eating. Fresh organic produce is now widely available and organic fruit baskets make a fun treat for an anniversary, Christmas, or birthday. A wicker basket is always a tasteful container for these gifts, and you can fill them with any variety of fruits that are in season. The most popular organic fruit basket varieties are oranges, apples, and pears. If you are going to be delivering the gift yourself, you can also include some more perishable selections like strawberries, cherries and bananas. In either case, make sure your recipient gets your gift quickly to make sure the produce is still fresh for them to enjoy.

Citrus Fruit Baskets

Citrus fruit baskets are a fun and colorful way to welcome someone to the neighborhood and are also perfect sent as a get well gift. Bright and sweet, citrus fruits are readily available year round. Their kitchen will be filled with the fresh, clean smell of these beloved fruits, and they'll be enjoyed for days. Fill your basket with oranges, grapefruits, lemons, limes, tangerines, minneolas, and tangelos. You could even add a cookbook featuring citrus recipes for some new unique ideas on how to use these versatile fruits in everyday cooking.

Healthy Snack Gift Baskets

Healthy snack gift baskets can be a fun way to provide someone with a little extra energy without ruining their diet. Health foods can still taste good, and they'll appreciate the extra effort you spent finding something they can enjoy guilt free. Choose a reusable container like a wire caddy and fill it with natural wood shred. Fill your healthy snack gift basket with dried fruit, raisin and nut trail mix, sunflower seeds, soy nuts, baked veggie chips, bottled water, and some sugar free candy. Write a personal note card and your basket is ready to give!
