The Perfect Gift is a Healthy One and You’ll Get Only the Best from The Fruit Company – Review & Giveaway


As I sit here shopping for a family friend, it occurred to me that I already know of the perfect gift to get. June was one crazily hectic month for us. Our little one’s baby graduation, my brother’s college graduation, our anniversary, Father’s Day, plenty of family and friend graduations, get togethers, birthdays, you name it. When having to purchase gifts for so many people, especially for those that seemingly have everything already, shopping can turn into quite the stressful task. Luckily, these guys are here to help.

The Fruit Company recently offered me the opportunity to try out one of their gift baskets and I could not have been more thrilled. First and foremost, it did make a wonderful Father’s Day gift for the fruit loving daddy in our lives. Though I think that the kids ended up munching on more of it than he did, we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

I have always been quite hesitant when it came to purchasing food related items online. I’m one of those folk that despise anyone touching my food so having it boxed up and shipped cross country was never exactly my thing. When the box arrived from The Fruit Company I was actually quite pleased with it. Of course it was packaged beautifully but, once opened; I found that each piece of fruit was actually individually wrapped before being neatly placed in the adorable little basket.

These days, with more and more people making their purchases online (myself included), I am thankful to have found such a wonderful company. It is hard finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list and, oftentimes, that is where gift baskets come in.  The Fruit Company truly does have something for everyone. With everything from gourmet fruit baskets and gift towers to kosher options, birthday packages, and even a monthly fruit club, The Fruit Company is THE place to shop for all of your gifting needs. Daddy got the Simply Fruit basket from The Fruit Company and it was definitely a great fit for him.

Simply Fruit (500x500)

Simply sensational, simply elegant, simply one of the best ways to impress a real fruit-lover – a relative, friend, or business associate. Imagine hand woven wicker hamper – complete with rope handles and a matching lid – overflowing with an ambrosial blend of the finest seasonal fruit under the sun, combined with our new Dried Fruit Medley. Best of all, there’s enough of a selection to delight an entire family.

Now, we do our very best to keep our home stocked with great snacks for the family. The Fruit Company was no exception, though I will say that this particular item was hard to keep on hand. I kid you not when I say that the entire thing was gone in a matter of days. It was literally overflowing with goodies, but all of it was entirely too delicious to remain on our countertop. Every single piece was succulent and crispy, and if I hadn’t known better, I would’ve sworn that it had just been picked.

We absolutely loved our basket from The Fruit Company and I highly suggest giving their site a gander the next time you’re in need of a great gift. Whether it is for Dads and grads…
