The Daily Meal’s Guide to Gift Baskets and Boxes

Find the perfect gift in our go-to guide

Jane Bruce

Deck the halls with these great gift ideas.

We’ve all had the problem of finding the perfect gift for that special person in our lives — whether it’s our mom, mother-in-law, or neighbor, some people are just a bit too hard to shop for.

If you find yourself in this situation this holiday season, take advantage of their favorite foods or hobbies and gift a basket — one that’s filled to the brim with foods, brands, or drinks that are always in their pantry or fridge.

For example, if your recipient loves a particular restaurant or chef, use that knowledge to select a basket filled with ingredients to help them mimic a favorite dish at home, like a charcuterie board or items for breakfast in bed. Whatever the case, we’ve rounded up our favorites for every person in your life, from the hostess to the chef to the cocktail enthusiast and more.

Take a look through our guide for some gift basket inspiration.


The Best Subscription Boxes for Every Interest

From artisan teas to designer fashion, there's something for everyone on your list.

Most gifts are one-and-done, but with the rise of monthly subscription boxes, your gift can literally keep on giving. Whether you're picking out something for that special someone, or if that someone is yourself, there's nothing that will brighten up the day-to-day deliveries like a new gift every month. With boxes for everything from candy to clothes and books, there's an option for every personality, and every need. From practical meal boxes to make your life easier to indulgent jewelry subscriptions to expand your bauble collection, these are the boxes to add to your subscription list now.

Wine! Every month! And if that weren't enough of an enticement, Winc offers a palette quiz to pick personalized bottles for every subscriber so you can say goodbye to staring down an endless row of wines at the local shop.

Four bottles per month, starting at $13/bottle.

It's hard to know where to start with makeup and skincare, and experimenting can be expensive. That's where Birchbox comes in. Subscribers enter their preferences (skin type, hair concerns, etc.), and Birchbox sends them five mini products from top brands each month, so subscribers can discover new favorites all the time.

This year get the kids something that'll entertain them without a screen. With Kiwi, each month they'll get an expert-designed, kid-tested science or art project like a light-up planatarium or felted succulent bouquet. Subscriptions are categorized by age group, so they'll always have something challenging and fun.

Do you know anyone who doesn't want more cheese in their life? We didn't think so. As part of this club from the iconic New York cheesemonger, dedicated dairy fans receive a monthly box of three curated selections from the Murray's cheese caves, each hand chosen by their experts to be the best of the best. Sounds like the perfect excuse for a party to us.

What better for the flower child in your life than a beautiful box of blooms sent to their door on a regular basis? Bouqs's subscription option lets you automatically send a bouquet (from petite to diva-sized) on a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or bi-monthly basis. You can even tailor the blooms to your recipient's style, choosing between classic mixes, an all-rose bouquet, or a custom blend of the freshest seasonal flowers.

Comfy doesn't have to mean schlubby. Case in point: this monthly box that will stock his closet with luxurious versions of his go-to basics (think: pre-shrunk, machine washable tees and hoodies in sleek silhouettes and high stitch counts.)

Sometimes all you need is a good excuse to treat yourself, and this box will certainly give you one. The monthly box comes filled with wellness goodies that will have you primed for relaxation as well as a therapist-curated activity to get your brain on the positive vibes track.

The logical conclusion of the ever-faster fashion trend cycle: the high-end clothing rental subscription. Rather than throwing away money on cheap garments that'll hardly last a few wears, consider renting and returning some designer pieces each month for a more sustainable wardrobe makeover.

2020 was, without a doubt, the Year of Baking. But even if you weren't up for the sourdough renaissance, you can still bake up some goodies with this subscription box that includes all of the fresh ingredients, plus instructions and video tutorials, to create cookies, cakes, buns, and more.

For the organization lover, this subscription will keep them feeling put-together with chic planners, memo pads, notecards, envelope, luxe pens, and more. You can choose from pen and pencil-only plan, a version with just paper goods, or a complete box that will keep their home office stocked.

Where's the beef? Right here. Soothe your carnivorous cravings with this (keto-friendly!) monthly shipment of artisanal jerky from craftspeople all over the U.S.

Jewelry buffs, take note. This subscription service allows you to test drive new baubles from designers like Kendra Scott, Gorjana, and Kate Spade without the commitment of buying. With the help of your style profile and your personally-selected picks, a stylist will send you three handpicked options at a time to try&mdashwear them as long as you like, buy what you love (you get a $21 monthly credit that can go toward purchasing a piece) and send back the rest.

Father’s Day Gift Guide: The Best Recipe And Meal Kits For The Home Chef

Cooking at home has been more popular than ever this year, as most Americans have been under stay-at-home orders.

Great dishes begin with the right recipes and ingredients.

But cooking every meal every night for a family can start to feel old and tired, even for those people who love to cook. Home chefs love the idea of fresh and creative recipes, and with many grocery stores running out of essential ingredients, completing those dishes is often complicated.

It’s for all those reasons recipe and meal kits are a great Father’s Day gift idea that year. If you can’t spend the day together, this is a great opportunity to ship him a package and prepare something specially together (virtually!).

These kits help to take away the stress and health risks of grocery shopping, but also eliminate waste and make menu planning easier, because all the prep is done already.

Professional Chefs Share Their Favorite Strawberry Recipes

A Restaurant Renaissance? Mona Cares And Roar Team Up To Revitalize Manhattan’s Food Scene

Get A Taste Of Authentic Indian Cuisine At South Florida’s Bombay Darbar

Hungryroot is a weekly service (plans average from $60 to $100 per week) built on the concept of healthy ingredients and easy recipes, all built from the subscriber’s personal food preferences and dietary needs. While this service refers to themselves as an online grocery service with recipe and meal planning support as opposed to a meal kit, they have recipes and ingredients ready for every sort of diet and taste. Whether they are vegan or vegetarian, gluten-free or dairy-free, or avoiding certain allergens, this is a great option for home chef dads. There’ll be no chopping, meal planning or prep required!

Father’s Day is looking a little different this year, and fresh ingredients are sometimes hard to come by. With a meal kit, he’ll get everything he needs to make the dish but with no waste.

STRPHANIE AXTELL PHOTOGRAPHY 2017

Baldor Kitchen Meal Kit

These meal kits are restaurant inspired and include all the ingredients for a hearty but wholesome meal for four people. The varieties include options such as Cavatelli with Chicken Sausage & Broccoli Rabe Pesto or Chicken Piccata and Cauliflorini, with prices starting at $42 and ranging up to $48, depending on the kit. Each also includes a recipe card with images and instructions, so he won’t have problem getting this meal prepped, even if he’s new to cooking.

Sun Basket Meal Kits

One of the most known companies in the realm of meal kit options, Sun Basket lets subscribers choose two or more dinners from each week’s menu, divided among meat and fish and vegetarian and vegan options. Dinners start at $10.99 per serving, and are available in two or four servings per kit. With fancy sounding dishes like ginger-chicken and bok choy stiry-fry with pickled daikon salad, it sounds really impressive, but thanks to the recipe cards and easy-to-follow instructions that come with each order, not hard to pull together!

Tipsy Scoop DIY Boozy Ice Cream Sandwich Kit

Tipsy Scoop's DIY Boozy Ice Cream Sandwich Kit

Any great meal kit deserves a dessert option, like DIY ice cream sandwiches!

Together, that’s enough to make 12 boozy ice cream sandwiches.

Alfred Vanilla Latte DIY Kit

Alfred Vanilla Latte DIY Kit

At a time that many people are missing a latte at their local cafe, it’s very possible that your dad is feeling the same way. This kit ($70) lets him make those vanilla lattes at home. Included in the package is a bottle of Alfred Housemade Vanilla Syrup, Alfred Espresso Blend Whole Bean Coffee, Alfred "Sticker" MiiR Tumbler, two 32-oz cartons of Oatley Barista Oat Milk and two Black Stainless Steel Straws (with cleaning brush and linen travel bag). That’ll be enough to keep him in lattes for quite a while.

21 Gifts That Make the Perfect Mother's Day Delivery

Thinking of Mom? Whether you live long distance from her or simply opt to enjoy her company virtually this year, it&aposs always nice to send your love from afar with a gift. Flowers, gift baskets, breakfast in bed𠅊ll of those things are traditionally given in person, but that doesn&apost mean you can&apost riff on those ideas and surprise her with a special delivery.

Celebrated on the second Sunday in May, Mother&aposs Day is a time for us to shower Mom with love and gratitude. Whether you&aposre looking for new inspiration or have a specific kind of gift in mind, we have shoppable ideas for every type of mom. Is she a gardener? Gift her with a bouquet of ranunculus blooms wrapped in paper. Is she creative-minded? Gift her with stationery personalized for handwriting letters and notes. Is she a style maven? Gift her with a stylish set of jewelry boxes, each monogrammed in her name. Is she more of the sentimental type? She&aposll adore an album of photographs depicting the faces of her family members, including you. A singular gift is only bested by an entire package that&aposs curated and artfully presented in your stead. But submit your order soon—only some of these mail-order deliveries will be accepted through the morning of Mother&aposs Day, in most parts of the country, for same-day delivery.


The fruit of your gifting efforts will be appreciated

Whatever theme gift you put together, the most important element is delicious fun. Decide on the theme, choose your gift ingredients, and wrap them up in a creative manner.
For example, whisks of several sizes intertwined with the ribbon on the outside of the wrapping calls out, “Open me first!” and gives the giftee a tasty prelude to the culinary
goodies to come. Regardless, the person lucky enough to receive the fruit of your efforts is going to appreciate the tasty experience and enjoy the mouthwatering memory for a very long
time.
