Celebrations, milestones, struggles, and everything in between—life is full of moments that we share with people we care about. Nothing brings us together like sharing delicious food, so sending a selection of delicious snacks is the perfect way to connect with the important people in your life. Here’s our list of gift picks for some of the life events you are sure to come across.


Every accomplishment deserves to be recognized! If someone you know has reached a goal, gotten a promotion, or did something especially exciting, help them celebrate with a selection of treats and snacks.

Say congratulations deliciously with a selection of well-loved savory snacks. Send them the Congratulations Signature Bites Gift Basket and they’ll be able to create a perfectly-paired meat and cheese spread to help get their celebration started!

To toast an extra-special accomplishment, send a gift featuring wine with bubbles! Our Cheers to You Wine Gift Basket comes with both sparkling wine and rosé, along with sweet treats and savory bites, to make any celebration feel like a party.

For someone you haven’t seen in awhile

Whether it’s a friend or family member who lives too far for frequent visits, or someone you just haven’t seen in far too long, a great way to keep the connection going is by sending something delicious for them to snack on.

Surprise a faraway friend or family member with a thinking of you gift basket filled with plenty of snacks. Our Thinking of You Cabernet & Snack Collection is filled with rich and smooth flavors they’ll love to dig into, and the ribbon and hang tag message adds a special touch.

The Grand Fruit & Wine Gift Basket is a perfect pick if you’re sending a gift to a group of people. There are enough savory bites and sweet treats to share, and the variety of delicious flavors will create a gourmet snack spread everyone can enjoy.

For someone who went above & beyond for you

Thank you notes are nice, but someone who did something special for you deserves something special in return. The best way to show your appreciation is by sending them a gourmet thank you gift filled with treats they can enjoy.

If you’re thanking a wine lover, they’ll love to unwrap the Thank You Hearty Bites & Wine Gift Basket. It comes with both red and white wine along with an assortment of perfectly-paired savory snacks for a gourmet charcuterie experience.

For a thank you gift that boasts both savory bites and sweet treats, the Premium Thank You Snacks Gift Basket won’t disappoint! Plus, the specially-designed basket will show how much you really appreciate everything they’ve done for you.

For someone who needs a pick-me-up

When a friend or family member is going through a tough time, it’s important to let them know you’re thinking of them. A sympathy gift filled with comforting snacks is a great way to show them you care.

Suffering a loss is never easy, but a gift basket filled with easy-to-enjoy snacks is a great way to help them heal. Our Deepest Condolences Fruit & Snack Gift Basket has gourmet salami and cheese, plus flatbread and fresh fruit to put together a hearty snack without a trip to the grocery store.

If you know someone who is facing a challenging time, let them know you’re sending your love with a basket filled with treats. The Love & Comfort Gift Basket features savory snacks, chocolates, and comforting tea flavors to help them feel a little bit better.

Just because!

Sometimes, you don’t need a specific reason to treat someone special to a delicious gift! No matter who you’re looking to surprise, you can’t go wrong with a gourmet food gift.

Anyone would love being surprised by a gift box filled with charcuterie essentials and decadent chocolates. Our Premium Charcuterie & Chocolate Gift Box is a great pick for family and friends who love to indulge in hearty snacks and sweets.

If you know someone who loves wine and food pairings, surprise them with the Hearty Bites & Wine Gift Basket. With three summer sausage flavors, three kinds of cheese, red wine, and Chardonnay, they’ll be able to mix and match tons of gourmet flavor combinations.
