Once I moved to Charlotte, I became a fan of Dean & Deluca. Honestly, they do a great job marketing their brand but I have to hand it to them -- the products back it up. With such great items, I fell in love with the idea of creating your own custom D&D gift basket.
All you have to do is go on their website and step-by-step you choose what your giftee would like. You begin by choosing a container, and there are many choices from the signature white box to a reusable bag to a wicker basket. Once you pick your container, the fun begins...all of the D&D products are uploaded and you simply click on the product and it is put in your virtual cart. The items range from popcorn to barbecue sauce, and don't forget about D&D's special blend coffees.
With all these treats, you are sure to create the perfect basket, which could be a gift for virtually anyone (or yourself -- I'm just saying!). If you are overwhelmed with the choices, D&D also has custom theme baskets already created for you. Some of the themes include: Coffee Lover, For the Cook, Snacks and Italian. They will pre-select items to be placed in the basket and all you have to do is check out. You can also add items to the custom theme baskets, if you choose. Check it out!
