Olive Oil Gift Baskets—It's More Than a Gift

Gift baskets are almost always themed. We can find traditional baskets of fruits, sweets, wines, and liquors, as well as bath products such as soaps and scented lotions. Due to their versatility, the baskets can be customized according to the interests of the recipients. If you are thinking of making one of these gifts with a unique and special touch, we recommend giving  olive oil gift baskets.

Olive oil gift baskets are an excellent option to give at any time of the year. The idea of giving a basket of this type is that it has no limitations. In the basket, we can include more than one gift, olive oil, a bottle of the best aged balsamic vinegar, or another exquisite one. Not only that, but these baskets can also be highly personalized or generic enough that anyone can enjoy receiving them. Do you know how the idea of baskets as gift options came about?

Gift basket: origin

EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) is a gift that lovers of cooking like; it is the ideal gift for those who want to take better care of themselves and want to do so while enjoying a gourmet experience. Giving extra virgin olive oil conveys affection, well-being, and gratitude to our loved ones.

Giving a basket containing groceries, drinks, sweets, or other items or accessories is believed to have originated around two thousand years BC. Giving a gift basket was intended to pamper, cheer and thank family, friends, or acquaintances.

The custom of gifting baskets is believed to have originated with the Romans. Although it was a gift that could be given at any time of the year, it was much more common during the Saturnalia (Roman festivals in honor of Saturn, the deity of agriculture). The Saturnalia festivity lasted about seven days, from December 17 to 23. It is also more common to make this gift during the December season.

Now that we know a small fraction of the history of gift baskets, we want to present you with some unique options so that you never stop surprising your friends and loved ones. Your olive oil gift baskets are incredible gourmet gifts that include balsamic vinegar in bottles that you can personalize.

3 main olive oil gift baskets

  1. Premade Gift Baskets: These gift baskets can be found on store shelves or windows. They are usually already wrapped and ready to buy.
  2. In-Store Gift Baskets: Some stores and websites allow you to select the items you want in your basket, and an employee will organize and pack the assortment for you. This gives the basket a personal touch and, at the same time, allows you to provide a more professional presentation.
  3. Homemade gift baskets: You will have to compare the contents and wrap them yourself for these types of baskets. In these cases, you have complete control over what you put in the basket and how you present it.

Whether you want to create a unique gift for your best friend or just need something nice for your new neighbor, gift baskets are always a great option.
