A Traditional Gift Idea, and How to Choose the Perfect One

You want your fruit baskets to appear welcoming—as if to say: ‘come and have a piece of fruit!’ The hardest thing about choosing a fruit basket as a gift is to choose one that will have just enough fruit for the receiver.

Some fruit baskets come in huge baskets, covered with décor and filled with fruits. As beautiful as it may seem, you don’t want to give such a large fruit basket to one person—unless that person has company over often enough that the fruit will not go to waste. However, as luxurious as these huge fruit baskets are, you can find smaller ones that are just as lovely.

The gigantic fruit baskets I mentioned above are great presents for the office or to bring to any party. These will also make a lovely addition to holliday decor. Bring a fruit basket to the host of a Christmas or thanksgiving party etc. Fruit baskets are great to ship out to people, too. A great way to say “Happy Holidays” is through an elegant, well designed fruit basket.

If the group you are gifting is a bit smaller, say for example a four person family with two older kids who do not snack at home very much, you will want to get a fruit basket with enough fruit but not too much. You will have to judge all of your fruit baskets this way, based on how many people will likely eat the fruit quickly enough.

Some fruit baskets are designed for smaller parties, or even individuals that are not tiny or unimpressive. Fruit baskets are available on the market which are fairly large, but with more decoration and less fruit inside. That way you can give someone a great fruit basket that will be a beautiful touch to his or her home or office, and most importantly, the fruit inside is less likely to go bad.

Selecting fruit baskets can be hard, because so many of them are so nice looking and there are so many options to choose from. But always consider the amount of fruit you will be giving away before purchasing a fruit basket for your friends, family, or co-workers.
