Let’s be real: Gift baskets aren’t the most personalized presents in the world, but when you’re in a bind for what to give your neighbors who are hosting the annual holiday block party or need a last-minute gift for Aunt Karen who just RSVP’d for Christmas dinner, they more than do the trick. So we sifted through all the gift baskets on Amazon to uncover the most creative, delicious ones out there—that will also arrive on your doorstep ASAP. From a tray full of truffle-y goodness to a box of barbecue essentials, we guarantee you'll find no boring fruit baskets or subpar boxes of chocolate here.
1. Borgo de’ Medici Luxury Truffle Gift Tray
Did your cousin just discover the truffle powder seasoning at Trader Joe’s? Up the ante and introduce him to umami goodness straight from the region known for its fungi, Tuscany, which is where this delicious bundle hails from. Included are dinner-ready items like black truffle linguine, risotto and sauce, as well as a truffle oil (drizzle it over homemade pizza) and truffle glaze (it does wonders for grilled chicken).
2. Burt’s Bees Classics Gift Set
This Burt's Bees bundle is versatile enough to be gifted to coworkers, not-so-close friends or your brother’s new girlfriend who you’re meeting for the first time on Christmas morning. It includes an all-natural assortment of dry skin saviors: Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, Hand Salve, Original Beeswax Lip Balm, Res-Q Ointment (a multipurpose balm that'll heal bumps or cooking burns), Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream and Coconut Foot Cream. Basically, it's ideal for anyone who has to deal with freezing winter weather.
3. Wisconsin Cheese Company Deluxe Cheese and Crackers Gift Basket
They don’t call it the Dairy State for nothing. Wisconsin-made cheese is sure to impress on any charcuterie board, and this one ships to your doorstep straight from the Wisconsin Cheese Company's family-run farm. Featuring their beloved cheddar and pepper jack varieties—along with water crackers, two different mustards and pretzel sticks for dipping—it’s basically an instant party spread. Just add a marble cheese board.
4. Bunny James All-Natural Holiday Gourmet Gift Basket
If you and your coworker bond over sweet snacks in the office pantry, treat her to an almost endless supply of chocolate. The snack-centric basket is filled with an assortment of winter-themed treats—like dark chocolate peppermints and candy cane marshmallow rice treats—that will satisfy most 3 p.m. cravings.
5. Man Crates Pit Master Barbecue Crate
Does your dad feel at home manning the grill and does he pride himself on his recipe for fall-off-the-bone ribs? You can officially stop marinating on gift ideas thanks to this clever crate of barbecue essentials. As one happy customer review states, “Even though I had selected this gift box, I was still pleasantly surprised by the contents. The gloves are very heavy duty, the BBQ sauces are a very generous size, the meat claws and grill fork tools are clearly well made and of high quality, and the cast-iron sauce pot will literally last forever.” Not to mention the kick he’ll get out of having to crack open the crate with a crowbar.
6. Stonewall Kitchen Maine Morning Batter Bowl Gift
We love that these Stonewall Kitchen best sellers are packaged in a fully functional, pinecone-adorned batter bowl (plus a whisk) so a memorable day-after-Christmas breakfast can come together in a cinch. BTW, the Wild Maine Blueberry Jam is the topping you didn't know your pancakes needed.
7. Oh! Nuts Holiday Nut and Dried Fruit Basket
On the hunt for a healthy gift basket that’s not a lame fruit bouquet or a boring box of mixed nuts? Look no further than this gourmet (and health-conscious) option that includes an assortment of dried fruits like peaches, apple rings and kiwis, as well as crunchy pistachios and almonds. Any hostess will welcome this with open arms as a respite to the cookies and chocolates their other guests brought.
8. California Delicious Starbucks Daybreak Gourmet Coffee Gift Basket
Don't do the bare minimum and hand your coffee-loving client a Starbucks gift card. Make a better impression with a gift basket that she'll break into as soon as she gets back to the office. It includes three easy-drinking coffee blends to be sipped out of their own Starbucks ceramic mug. Plus, the assortment of Teavana teas, biscotti and shortbread cookies will go hand in hand with a work-from-home snow day.
9. Godiva Chocolatier Gift Basket
Packed to the brim with decadent Belgian chocolate goodies, this basket is just the thing for any occasion where you’re hoping to sweeten someone’s day. Highlights include Godiva's famous hot cocoa mix, chocolate-covered graham crackers and lava cake dessert truffles. Plus, once all the chocolate has been eaten, this stylish gold bin can easily be repurposed as a place to stash reading material in the living room.
10. Wine Country Tea Time Gift Basket
A white ceramic teapot surrounded by soothing teas, cookies, candies and spreads encourages some much-needed R&R after the holiday season. The breakfast tray can be used again and again (hint, hint to their significant other).
