Gift baskets you can find at the store are so expensive. Most of the times, there’s not a lot of value for the cash you put in it. That why when we got a 50$ budget for the wedding gift of a coworker, I proposed to make a personalized gift instead of buying the usual Godiva basket.
I went a little over budget (65$), but mostly to get a nice re-usable container.
Coworker is a true foodie and was known to love duck and floral teas.
