Baked Goods Sampler Basket and other Gift Ideas for Grandparent’s Day

Baked Goods Sampler Basket and other Gift Ideas for Grandparents Day

Though some people have not heard of the holiday, Grandparent’s Day has been around for more than 35 years now.  And it’s coming up quick on Sept. 7, leaving little time to get a gift of appreciation to our beloved grandparents.

If you are in a pinch and want to send a fun gift to your grandmother, grandfather or both, has assembled a list of their top 5 selections to fit any budget:

1. Almond Strawberry Delight, $19.99
Could you get a more affordable, yet delectable gift for the grandparents you know?  Not likely. In a beautiful matte finished box, gourmet roasted and salted almonds are paired with a medley of premium dried fruits for a tasty, relatively guilt-free snack.  This would be a big hit with more health-conscious grandparents, too.

2. Baked Goods Sampler Basket, $29.99
While this is another very affordable gift, it also can really satisfy a sweet tooth and we all know many grandies still love their sweets. Inside this beautiful basket, rich brownies (chocolate chunk and cheesecake) are artfully arranged with tempting cookies (white chocolate macadamia, oatmeal raisin, chocolate chip and peanut butter.) There are also larger versions of this baked goods basket, too. Click here to see it.

We sampled this fun basket and found it to be a nice little sweet treat for grandparents to enjoy.  Each cookie package has two cookies – just enjoy to share or for savoring one and saving one for later enjoyment.  The brownies are a single brownie, but a generous enough portion for sharing.  All of the treat have a homemade taste and soft textures.  The basket makes a nice table decoration, counter-top catch-all or decorative base to slip a planter into when the treats are all gone.

Tip: If you live close to your grandparents and don’t have the need to ship items, you could easily create your own baked good basket to deliver, too!

3. Wine Party Picnic Ravenswood Duo, $99.99
For the wine-loving grandparents, this impressive arrangement makes the perfect gift. Inside a signature willow-branch basket, delighted grandparents will find two bottles of coveted Ravenswood wine paired with an assortment of mouthwatering accompaniments. Complete with a zesty tomato bruschetta, crisp deli-style crackers, and slow smoked cheese, this sophisticated gift is sure to make a great impression.

4. Ultimate Margarita Madness Bucket, $119.99
This is the perfect celebratory gift for grandies who really like to have a good time. Loaded with premium margarita mix and many different savory snacks like spicy salsas and zesty tortilla chips, this basket gives grandparents everything they need for a fiesta that can’t be beat.

5. Red Wine And Dark Chocolate Suitcase with Torpedo Cigar, $179.99 has many gifts that are quite indulgent and this is certainly one of them. Inside an elegant suitcase, a collection of sophisticated tastes begins with the remarkably well-balanced Torpedo Barber Cigar and two coveted red wines. These flavors are then expertly paired with an assortment of irresistible gourmet treats, including chocolate-drenched fruits and exquisitely crisp cookies. This is a gift few grandies will ever forget.

While these are top picks, there are literally hundreds of other choices at  Check them out if you need a little help with your Grandparent’s Day gift giving!
