Thanksgiving came and went (Gobble, Gobble!), followed by Black Friday shenanigans. You can’t re-gift last year’s coffee maker to your sister, and you’re running out of ideas for Christmas presents. What do you get for the man, woman, or snowman who has everything?
Holiday gift baskets! You’ve got to be an exceptional kind of Scrooge to dislike a gift basket, and even the Grinch himself would be hard-pressed to frown at a fully stocked and specialized, made-to-go and ready-to-enjoy holiday gift basket from Vendome.
Open year round, Vendome has been making people feel loved for over 40 years. There’s not quite a jollier present than a wine basket from Vendome. But they carry much, much more than just wine.
You can order from a premade catalogue of custom gift baskets, or you can mix and match to create the perfect customized gift basket for the special friend, family member, or better half in your life. Some of the custom gift baskets include: Beer Baskets, 1—3 Bottle Wine Baskets, Sparkling Wine Baskets, French Wine Baskets, Spirits Baskets, Margarita Baskets (and Donner and Blitzen!), and more. All of these baskets have holiday snacks to compliment the libations best savored around a fireplace – or under the mistletoe. There are cheese and crackers, chocolates, biscuits, summer sausages, and other items.
With their knowledgeable wine, beer, and spirits staff, Vendome can help you pick and choose from their “deep and wide” selection. They’ve got high end single malt scotch, as well an extensive beer selection. As the beer market explodes, Vendome has one of the biggest collections in the country with 1,200 beers and counting, including craft beers and ales, ciders, and so on. As for wine, they have selections from here in California, France, Italy, and Spain, as well as Australia, New Zealand, and Argentina – “so hot right now.” Vendome holds comprehensive beer and wine tasting five nights a week; taste that pinot noir or chardonnay before you send it to your wine snob brother-in-law.
And Vendome delivers, ensuring you won’t have to trek through frightful weather to get your gift basket to dear ol’ grandmother’s house. Or here’s an idea: Send it to yourself from “Santa”!
With different customized baskets every year, Vendome knows how to make the holidays extraordinary. Call (818) 766-9593 to have a catalogue emailed to you today, or stop by and say hello at 10600 Riverside Dr. in Toluca Lake. Gifting has never been easier – or merrier!
