Wine Gift Baskets Delivered

When shopping for wine gift baskets one question most customers have is whether wine gift baskets can be delivered. In most instances, the answer is yes.

But what about wine and cheese gift baskets? Won't the cheese spoil in the delivery process? No, not necessarily.

Although most companies do not actually have wine refrigerators that can be shipped. They do have access to refrigerator trucks or other refrigerator means of transporting a wine and cheese basket or other goods from state to state.

Yet, you do want to discuss the option of delivery when you make your purchase. You want to make sure that the salesperson realizes the shipping distance. Of course, the longer the distance the more chance of spoilage.

If you are worrying about your food and wine choices spoiling, you could stick with items that have longer shelf life. The wine, itself, should be safe, as long as the wine bottle is unsealed and does not break. As for food choice items you could skip the refrigerator items such as meats and cheese and try such choices as:

  • Nuts (cashews, almonds, etc)
  • Pretzels
  • Hard candies (chocolates are great, but they could melt)
  • Wrapped cookies, muffins or breads,
  • Fruits (apples, oranges or grapes)
  • Crackers
  • Gourmet wafers
  • Gourmet breadsticks

You can fill the remainder of your basket with fun items such as corkscrews, wine glass charms, nice wine glasses, (plastic may ship better) and maybe even a CD of some great listening music.

When you are deciding on how much you want to spend on your gift basket, be sure to estimate the shipping cost and that sales tax. You also may want to check to see if there are any sales going on that includes free shipping. Many times companies will offer this if you buy certain products or if you spend a certain amount in their store.

Yes, having wine gift baskets delivered may seem like an improbable task. But it really isn't that hard of a job and the salespeople are usually always happy to help you.
