Gourmet Gift Basket Ideas

Gourmet gift baskets are always a great idea, because everyone likes to eat!
Even the person who has everything!

Assemble your own custom gift basket using one of the ideas found here.

Make it Personal:

*put together a collection of culinary specialties from YOUR state or region, if the recipient lives far away--fresh maple syrup is not readily available out west!

*Choose a single recipe or meal that you are "famous" for and include all the ingredients and any special equipment they may need to prepare it. Don't forget to include your "secret recipe"!
