Harry & David Gourmet Gift Baskets

When I think of gourmet gift boxes for the holidays (or honestly…any time of year), my mind automatically goes to Harry & David.  I literally jump for joy every time one of their gift boxes ends up on my doorstep whether I bought it or if someone sent it to me!  I had never had the Founder’s Favorite Gift Box until last week and I’m just so glad that I finally tried it.

One of mine (and hubbyman’s) favorite late night snacks is dry salami with crackers and cheese.  Shhh…don’t tell the kids!  We keep it hidden from them.  This particular gift box had plenty for hubbyman and I to snack on plus plenty to put out for a dinner party we were having.  All the goodies made such a beautiful appetizer plate and the pears…oh those pears….they were so sweet and juicy and perfectly ripe.

I’ve sent a few Harry & David boxes over the years and the recipients are always impressed and have great things to say about the gift boxes! In fact, I just included a smaller gift box in a recent post about healthy after school snack ideas.

Harry & David are two brothers that took over their dad’s orchard business when he died back in 1914.  It has grown so much over the years and then was officially established in 2005 to include all their integrated business ventures.  The company continues to grow and is planning great things for the future.

The Founder’s Favorite Gift Box comes with

  • 5-6 Premium Pears
  • 2 Apples
  • Milk Chocolate Moose Munch Popcorn (6 oz.)
  • Havarti Cheese (6 oz.)

  1. I have always wondered if these taste as good as they look and if the pears are ripe and juicy. Thanks for the review.
