GOURMET GIFT BASKETS has a ton of different baskets for all of your gift giving needs and holidays. They even have baskets for your pets...yes, your beloved four legged friends can join in on the fun too!

Do you have a special someone in your life who likes to fish? Gourmet gift has you covered there too!

One of my favorite categories are the Care Package baskets! SO much fun! From summer fun camp, the sports enthusiast, the junk food lover or the health food nut, Gourmet gift is the one stop shop to make all of the people in your life feel special when they receive one of these amazing baskets!

I was recently given the opportunity to review the Classic Easter Bunny Basket. I was thrilled and was amazed first of all, at how quickly it arrived! I believe it was within two days. When I opened the box, I noticed that alot of attention to detail and thought was put into how they ship the baskets.

It had plenty of the air bubble packs surrounding it to keep it intact. The other thing I noticed and was very impressed by was the "ribbon collar". It was a cardboard-surrounding that protected the curly ribbons on the top, from being damaged. How clever is that?

The basket itself was a white wicker basket & it was wrapped in clear cellophane. Included in the basket were some of my fave candies such as Easter DOTS, Nerds, Peanut M&M's(yum!),marshmallow chick PEEPS(I love these!) & strawberry twizzlers! It also came with 2 brightly colored plastic Easter eggs(My Mom used to put money in ours when I was a kid!)

Nestled in with the candy was a super soft and cuddly 8" plush bunny! Too cute!

Wouldn't you love to WIN one of these baskets to give to your child(Or for that adult in your life who is still a big kid like myself!)? Well, Gourmet Gift is so generously giving ONE lucky reader of Joe's Place ,  the chance to win the very same basket that I received (See picture below)

Cute huh? My 6 yr. old Godson will be sharing some of the goodies out of the basket with me lol
