First thing that came to my mind was a gift basket from the St. Helena Olive Oil Company that I visited while I was in Napa for Thanksgiving.
The shop was adorably cute.
And the tastings were so fun. (Think olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette to your heart's desire. Not to mention the local honey, pesto sauces, mustards, rubs, sauces and more.)
Or the 19 year old balsamic vinegar. Best balsamic you will ever taste in your life. Well, unless you have some that is aged longer...then that one might taste better.
Obviously, Harry and David came to mind. Have you guys ever had their pears? Seriously to die for. I also am a huge fan of their chocolate covered blueberries. I think you can pick up a box at Target. They are right next to the Bing Cherries.
It goes without saying that Garrett's popcorn is the best and totally worth the ridiculous price. Try the Chicago Mix. You will not be disappointed.
Have you guys tried Cheryl and Company cookies? Totally worth the splurge. My favorite are the iced sugar cookies, but I think I have tried most of them and they are all amazing. Must.Try.
Also while in Napa, we visited Dean and Deluca. Love, love, love that place. So much so that I was the freak who was taking pictures in the grocery store. Albeit a gourmet grocery store...
Look how miniature these apples are!
If you don't have a Dean and Deluca near you, they do offer some amazing gift baskets like this Festa Italiana one. The fun thing about Dean and Deluca's site is that you can chose from Ready Made Gift Baskets or Create Your Own.
Let me know if you guys have any other good ideas for gift baskets. I cannot wait to hear some of the fun stuff you guys have received.
