The Perfect Pecan Gift Basket

By Grace Ellis

What makes the perfect pecan gift basket? I'm so glad you asked!

You'll know you've found the perfect pecan gift basket when it engages all five of your senses. Allow me to explain.

From the high-quality hinged basket, to the festive holiday ribbon, once you SEE our pecan gift baskets, you'll be ready to dive in. Lifting the lid will reveal a variety of pecan treats that will invite you to explore the world of deliciousness below.

Your hands will anxiously TOUCH each carefully-packaged treat inside. And, we suspect you'll move from touching to opening them pretty much instantly. As you handle each treat, you'll feel the weight of premium ingredients crafted by the hardworking hands of men and women from Fort Deposit, Alabama, the "Heart of Pecan Land."

What comes next? The SMELL...oh the glorious smell! Scents of authentic ingredients like butter, sugar, spices, and chocolate. And, of course, we can't forget to mention the aroma of the best pecans you'll find. Is your mouth watering yet?

We thought it might be. So, this seems like the perfect time to talk about the TASTE of those scrumptious, handmade candies and baked goods. Before we do so, let us tell you exactly what is stuffed, nonetheless carefully-packed inside. Roasted and Salted Pecan halves, Honey Glazed Pecans, Milk Chocolate Pecans, Crunchy Praline Pecans, an old-fashioned 5" Pecan Pie, Fiddlesticks, Betsy's Classic Cheese Straws, and a jar of Priester's Golden Pecan Pepper Jelly. (try spreading it on cream cheese and serving it with thin crackers - this is an Ellis Family staple). Whether you prefer salty or sweet, you'll find something to make your tastebuds dance. One bite of our indulgent chocolate pecans or one perfect crunch of a cheese straw and your mouth will thank you.

The last, but certainly not least, important sign of the perfect pecan gift basket is SOUND. Phrases like, "This is the best thing I've ever eaten," or, "Oh my goodness, this is amazing," will roll off your tongue as voluntarily as your "mmmm's" of glorious satisfaction. When food tastes this great, your ears, can't help but wonder what joyous experience is happening in your mouth.

Simply put the perfect pecan gift basket isn't just a pretty presentation of good food, it's something you experience - something that satisfies all five of your senses.

Are you looking to provide such an experience for someone? You could spend all day running around town to find the perfect basket, fetch the perfect foods that fit perfectly in your basket, tie the perfect ribbon into the perfect bow... Or you could just leave it to us. We'll handle it all, down to each perfect sense-stimulating detail.
