With Sympathy Gift Baskets you can help to put a little smile back onto someone's face even if it's just for a
few minutes. There are many gift baskets to choose from to help bring comfort at the hardest times in someone's
life. You might choose a gift basket that has a variety of coffee flavors in it with a beautiful mug and they
could enjoy the gift basket in the evenings when they are trying to relax. You might also choose a gift basket
that is filled with beautiful and delicious fruit, some great cheeses and maybe even some almonds.
Another option for your choice of gift basket could be a gourmet variety that could contain gourmet cookies,
chocolates, yogurt dipped pretzels and even some toffee flavored peanuts. A comforting choice for basket items
might even be some flavored popcorn, chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies, crackers and cheeses and
some flavored hot chocolate mixes. A candle can even be added so that could enjoy the light of the candle as
they enjoy some of the items from the basket.
If the basket is going to a female friend, you might consider a basket of spa products such as lotions and bath
gels. Perhaps something with lavendar scent so that that they can use the products to help relax them. After a
hard day of making arrangements or visiting with large amounts of people, it may be just what she needs to help
releive some stress. You may opt to include a CD of soothing music in a basket that contains some of their
favorite teas and a special tea cup.
