12 Unique Gift Baskets to Send for the Holidays 2022

Holiday gifting just got more delicious.

Edible gifts are always smart. Since they're consumable, packages of food don't require storage (for long), and they appeal to a wide range of tastes. Tasty treats are synonymous with the holiday season; they're always welcome, whether they contain candy, popcorn, sausage or another yummy snack. Gift baskets and Christmas go together like Santa and cookies. (Speaking of cookies, there are plenty of them in the Good as Gold basket from Gift Tree.)

It's easy to give a gift basket that will be enjoyed by its recipient; just pick a theme. If your giftee likes salty foods, a just-launched Momofuku ramen pack or a tasty charcuterie box will be sure winners. If the person on your holiday shopping list has a sweet tooth, you can't go wrong with See's Candies or this year's new pudding sampler from Magnolia Bakery. From brand-new collections to holiday classics, we've got gift baskets for every palette, so start scrolling and pick the perfect present.

Magnolia Bakery

HBO's Sex and the City had everyone rushing to try Magnolia Bakery's cupcakes in the early 2000s, but its banana pudding is the true star of the show. If you've never tried it, order immediately. Then order a pudding sampler for a friend. Each sampler pack includes two red velvet banana pudding cups, two chocolate hazelnut banana pudding cups, and two classic banana pudding cups. 

Gift Tree

The perfect gift basket for anyone who likes a nibble, the Good as Gold Classic basket includes a variety of sugary snacks. Almond Roca, Ghiradelli caramel squares, truffles, espresso beans, chocolate-drizzled caramel popcorn, lemon cookies and more are tucked into a woven gift basket and topped with a note card.

Harry & David

Warm someone's heart with a whole delicious meal from Harry & David. Much more than a basket of snacks, this gift basket contains French onion soup and bread bowls for two, complete with cheddar Gruyere cheese with black truffles to top it off. Plus, you get a bottle of cabernet sauvignon and two double chocolate chunk cookies for dessert. 

See's Candies

Festive holiday offerings are coming soon from the famed chocolate purveyor, but the See's Candy Signature Gift Pack is a year-round winner. It's a box full of delicious treats, including assorted chocolates, nuts and chews, Toffee-ettes, peanut brittle and assorted lollipops. That pretty much covers all their biggest hits.


The flavors of the storied Momofuku restaurants and culinary brand are now available at home, and this gift box doesn't disappoint. Chef David Chang includes his faves: five servings of Soy & Scallion Noodles, Chili Crunch and tamari sauce, plus Spicy Seasoned Salt. Bonus: free shipping!

Williams Sonoma

If you know someone who loves black truffles, you can't go wrong with this delectable Borgo de' Medici Essential Truffle set from Williams Sonoma. It comes with a gourmet truffle glaze, black truffle sauce, Italian salt infused with Perigold black truffles, and extra-virgin olive oil with black truffle. That's a whole lot of black truffle. 

Rancho Gordo

Think outside the gift box and give beans this holiday season! Everyone (including O, the Oprah Magazine) has been raving about Rancho Gordo beans, so this is a great gift option for cooks in-the-know. Included are five different 1-pound bags of delicious beans, cooking instructions, a cloth tote bag and a copy of The Rancho Gordo Heirloom Bean Guide. 

Dylan's Candy Bar

Just skip the savory stuff and go for the sugar! (This option will go over especially well with children.) There are 10 different sweet treats included in this basket from famous candy emporium Dylan's Candy Bar. Peanut butter cups, Cookie Bite Bliss, a colorful lollipop and more will make their day. 

Jasper Hill Farm

If you're gifting a cheese-lover, you can't go wrong with a delivery from Jasper Hill Farm. The Vermonter includes three lovely Vermont-specific cheeses (Whitney, Harbison and Cabot Clothbound Cheddar) plus Brewer's Sea Salt Crackers and Squirrel Stash Nuts. You can add some barrel-aged maple syrup for an extra $15 if you're feeling generous. 

Man Crate

Actual whiskey is not included in Man Crates' Whiskey Appreciation Crate, but so many other things are! A personalized decanter and glasses, for starters. Your lucky giftee will also find ice sphere molds, coasters, savory snacks and even a pocket-sized whiskey tasting journal to record their notes about favorite drams.

Williams Sonoma

Start Christmas morning off the right way with flaky, buttery croissants hot out of the oven. This mixed assortment of 12 pastries will transport your friends or loved ones straight to Paris with each buttery, crisp bite. Each box includes an assortment of chocolate croissants, au beurre croissants, almond croissants, kouign-amann batons, chocolate kouign-amann and pain aux raisins. The pastries arrive frozen, so you can defrost them one at a time or eat as many as you want, which may well be all of them. 

Olympia Provisions

Olympia Provisions has packed bites from all over Europe into this tasty box of snacks. Salami from France, Italy, Spain and Greece is the main event, but there's also paté, a wheel of cheese, honey, pickled beets, crackers, hazelnuts, olives and a mini mustard in this heavenly package. You may want to sample some of this gift before you send it out.
