A Better Basket.

For the weeks leading up to Christmas, The Texan brought home a variety of gift baskets that he received from various vendors and clients.  Tis the Season for large displays of nuts, chocolates and cheeses.  While they were all lovely, none can compare to the baskets arranged by Olive & Cocoa.

All of their products are shipped to you in a wooden crate, packaged with an eye for design and decorated with a pretty bow.  Started a couple of years ago by a husband and wife team who brought to the basket their backgrounds at Frontgate, Ballard Designs and Garnett Hill.  They are really bringing luxury in to the basket market. 

And it's not just edible items...decor, spa items, baby gifts,'s a modern approach to typical gift giving. 

My favorite?  The candy, of course! 

Gorgeous!  I could eat it all.

Do you ever send gift baskets?


  1. Those are so pretty! I am not usually a "basket" fan but with this kind of "basketing" I could learn to be....

  2. Wow! These are really amazing! I wish we had gotten one from there this year.......Good to know about them for next year. thanks!
