The Shoppe provides an excellent selection of items appropriate for gift baskets — and we can acquire special items not available in the Shoppe upon your request.
Gift baskets are customized according to your request and the price varies according to what you request. Most guests tell me how much they want to spend (generally $15 to $150) and give me a general idea of what they want, and then I prepare a basket accordingly….
Some options that are often requested include:
- Sparkling cider
- Cheese (usually Brie, Camembert, Gouda, Edam, Smoked Cheddar, Swiss, Provolone
- Bread (usually Sourdough, Rye, French, Italian, Whole Wheat) loaves or rolls) and/or crackers
- Chocolate (usually a chocolate bar such as Cadbury’s or a small box of assorted chocolates such as a Whitman sampler)
- Fruit (usually apples, pears, oranges, grapes)
I’ll provide these items in a basket, along with wine glasses, a cutting board, small plates, and a knife. These items should be returned to me unless you specify that you want to keep them, in which case I will charge you for whatever items you want to keep.
Also, I can arrange to have a bouquet of fresh flowers and/or balloons in the room–again, the price varies according to what you request.
