As we roll into summer, it’s hard to believe that Father’s Day is only a few weeks away. That’s right, it’s time to focus on the man who grills the meanest steak, makes the best camp fires and always scared the monsters away in the dark. Let’s face it, Dad’s rock and they deserver just as much attention as Mom’s do – and they deserver better than an ugly tie and socks.
This year, Gourmet Gift Basket came up with a lot of great options for Father’s Day gift baskets. If Dad is a beer lover, there’s a basket for that, and for the golf fan too! In our house we’re trying to stay a little healthier, so we passed up the chocolate covered strawberries and went with the Mendocino County Gift Crate when they sent us one to review.
Packed inside the wooden crate are 4 different great snacks, for a total of 30 oz of healthier snacking options. From Roasted & Salted Cashews by J&R Gourmet – Excellent quality Cashews from the Mendocino countryside, Cherry Fruit Cocktail by Merrimack Valley Snack Company – A wonderfully tasting fruit cocktail that perfectly compliments the nuts in this gift crate, Roasted & Salted Almonds by J&R Gourmet – All Almonds should come from this area of California, they are that good! Strawberry Honey Crunch by Merrimack Valley Snack Company- The sweet taste of Strawberry and Honey in a wonderfully delicious snack. The combination is a little salty and a little sweet, and sure to hit the spot when Dad goes digging for a snack.
Like all of the gift options from Gourmet Gift Baskets, this Mendocino County Gift Crate came fully wrapped and ready to give as a bow. It also has the added bonus of a cute wooden crate that can be used after the fact. Skip the tie or socks this year, give dad a better (for him) gift option, or one he’ll actually enjoy!
