Gift Baskets Your Loved Ones Will Use

It happens every year… You fill Easter baskets for your loved ones with whatever you find at the grocery store; candy, a wind-up chick, nothing they need or want. A few days later where does it end up? You bring the candy to the office and put it on the counter with a sign “Help Yourself” or you stash it in a kitchen drawer and forget about it until Halloween. If this sounds familiar, take a look at these fun and thoughtful basket ideas that are perfect for Easter, spring birthdays, and impressive hostess gifts for the first celebration of spring. Tuck in a gift card and let the recipient be inspired.

Gourmet Style

Create a kitchen-themed basket for the food connoisseur in your life. Start with a Himalayan Salt Block to set the stage for your upscale kitchen theme. Serving and cooking food on a solid Himalayan salt block is a great way to improve the taste of food while providing an impressive presentation. Our blocks are carved from a single salt rock and come in three sizes. Next, tuck in a set of three gourmet sea salts. We’ve taken the guess work out, and combined three great salts like our Taste of Tuscany trio for mushroom lovers. This set includes Trapani, Italian Black Truffle, and Italian White Truffle. Your gourmet chef will have fun creating and trying these exceptional salts on meat, poultry, and even pasta. A pair of Himalayan shot glasses add an impressive, elegant touch. Carved from 100% authentic Himalayan sea salt, these unique shot glasses will be the talk of the party. Add your favorite tequila and let the party begin.

Beginner’s Luck

If your goal is to encourage an aspiring cook, you are on the right track with a salt-themed basket. Begin with a salting cube, a simple way to add great Himalayan salt flavor to pasta water, stew, soup and chili. Simply hold the rope, dip the ‘cube’ into the pot, drag in circle for about 30 seconds. Flash rinse to clean. Fantastic flavor and fun to use! Include a copy of your favorite soup recipe and success is in the next pot. A staple in any well-stocked kitchen is our glass Himalayan Grinder. It looks great on the table and the grinder mechanism is made of rugged ceramic, which keeps salt fresh even in the most humid conditions. It comes pre-filled, and includes an 8oz refill of Himalayan salt, so your budding chef will not have to worry about running out. Top of your gift basket with our ever-popular Southern Comfort salt set. The smoky flavors of Hickory Smoked, Applewood Smoked, and Extra Bold Smoked sea salts make this ideal for even a beginner to earn that blue star rating. Use for rubs, on meat, chicken, fish, and more.
